Top 10 Crocodilian Figures [Completed]
« on: January 02, 2015, 08:37:39 PM »
In the spirit of making top ten lists that we've been getting into, I have decided to make one: a Top 10 Prehistoric Crocodilians Figures list, in honor of this underrated and amazing group of archosaurs. So far I have:
Sarcosuchus: CollectA and Mojo
Postosuchus: WWD and Safari
Batrachotomus: Bullyland
Arizonasaurus: Bullyland
Paratypothorax: Bullyland
Desmatosuchus: Schleich
Protochirotherium: Bullyland
Deinosuchus: Carnegie and Schleich
Rutiodon: Kaiyodo
Kaprosuchus: Safari
Metriorhynchus: Kaiyodo
Ornithosuchus: Kenner
Saurosuchus: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

If I forgot any, please let me know.

"Andrea rolled her eyes and sifted through the papers for the script that had been delivered recently. She hadn't read through it all, but the synopsis was ridiculous enough: Dinosaurs get loose on board the International Space Station and Wreak Havoc. Who had approved this? Shooting the last four movies was expensive enough without requiring the park to purchase space shuttles. And where were they going to get an EVA suit for the T-Rex? 'I don't have high hopes,' she admitted to Tom.

That is true, but I wasn't sure whether to include toob figures or not. I'll add them to my list, along with the toob Metriorhynchus.

Great idea for a poll. I can already tell you my hands-down favorite is the Safari Postosuchus. I'm not too well versed in crocodilian figures so I'm interested to see what people share. Maybe since it will undoubtedly be a smaller list a "Top 5" would be better? Just a thought. I mean, there is only 16 on there so far.

Fascinating topic. Personally I think the Tedco Desmatosuchus also deserves some credit.

I thought of the Starlux Protosuchus and Ornithosuchus.

Me too. I also like the Schleich Desmato and Bullyland figures.

Yowie Quinkana, Inpro Saltoposuchus, Starlux Saltoposuchus. That appears to be it; should I set up the poll?

Don't forget the Play Visions Metriorhnychus. Or the Kaiyodo Metriorhynchus. And to be picky, the Safari toob 'Metriorhynchus' is really Suchodus


And the ridge-headed mekosuchine by Yowies.

And the Primaeval Designs & Dawn of the Dinosaurs Saurosuchus.

And Protochirotherium, to be fair, is actually the footprints--the animal on the Bullyland base is speculative.

I see an issue; "Animal Planet Protosuchus".
Animal Planet doesn't make the toys, only puts their name on them.

The Euparkeria was purposely not included. Euparkeria is not a crocodilian or phytosaur, but rather a more primitive archosauriform close to the ancestry of true archosaurs.
On the Animal Planet Protosuchus, if anyone knows who actually made the Protosuchus I will change the name.

True enough, but we should include it for good measure. I doubt we will have a top 10 basal archosauriforms poll :)) . It is in the crocs toob after all :)
