The Liop looks nice..the Elasmosaur not so much and I'm not sure what's up with the Tylosaurus there.. :?

This Allosaurus looks familiar...oh yeah, it looks just like the Jurassic Park one...or possibly the Papo.



Seriously, Geoworld is the bottom of the pile for me. Schleich gets criticised a lot, but at least they don't try to pass their toys off as accurate by claiming they're approved by a paleontologist. And their toys have better details than Geoworld's.

I have a couple of their feathered dinos..and they aren't that bad really. Would be better repainted though.

I just realised those models on page 62 look like they belong in the JP Chaos Line, particularly the Brachiosaurus.

Hmm...funny they'd give the Elasmo a swan neck when the skeleton is accurate.  Not really thrilled with any of the marine reptiles and overall diversity seems a little low.  We'll wait and see on the pre-dinos, but my expectations are low.  Most the mammals are pretty mediocre at best, and that cave bear looks like a werewolf! ???

Yeah, I agree on all accounts.  Geoworld certainly likes to toot their own horn, don't they!

Does anyone have the Georex on page 40?

I had it--and it is terrible. It does not stay together at all, and the soft material it is made with flexes too much to assemble in the first place. There are better large rex skeletons out there (Toys R Us had one a while back that appears frequently in other lines). The Georex is also very expensive, close to $100 if I'm not mistaken.

I got mine on ebay for 9.99 ..but yeah it's pretty rough. I had to wire it together..one day I may put a steel rod through it and mount it nicely.

The marine reptiles look cartoony and inaccurate. I thought the days of reconstructing plesiosaurs with the eyes in the post temporal fenestrae were behind us. Note to geoworld sculptors - plesiosaurians are not dinosaurs, they do not have an antorbital opening as dinosaurs do. That opening you are neatly outlining in front of the eyes in your models, that is the orbit. Place the eyes there. Pass it on to the palaeontologists who are endorsing your products.

Still, glad to see some marine reptiles on offer, these are the only new plesiosaurs for 2014 I think..

Lol, yet another area where Schleich trumps Geoworld. At least the Schleichsaurs don't fall to pieces.

i wouldnt mind buying Geoworld figures if they cost like the typical chinasaurs, because they have the same level of quality.

How could Dr Steve let us all down like thus? ;D I am very amused with this new marketing move.

Some fairly decent models in there, but most of them are not. It doesn't really matter anyway though, since none of my regular dinosaur providers offer GeoWorld.

Poor Amebelodon is off the Unique Species List then. And on closer inspection, so is Becklespinax.

Yes, but more than one figure means it's not unique any more (I'm guessing)

WOW im relly at a lost for words.   on page 40 it has there new mascot say

"Did you know Tyrannosaurus was the largest predator in existence?"


WTF are these guys smoking, there are bigger predators then T.Rex out there like Giganotosaurus.   

These products have to potential to miss educate children into thinking the wrong things about the age of dinosaurs.
