According to the poll, the CollectA was the 11th favorite. It does make me wonder how many people have compared the two side by side--the Mojo is a better figure.

Same with the Triceratops. The Mojo is a copy of Collecta's, but improves on it somewhat.

Nice video, Dr. Adam! Good choice in music too.

Yeah, the CollectA Sarcosuchus did come in 11th, not the Mojo. But, I agree with Sean. I also have both and that's why I voted for the Mojo. 8)

BTW, who broke the tie for first place? ;)

Oops, my mistake, the Mojo and CollectA do look similar and they are right next to each other in the poll.  I'll correct that in the next video.

Glad you like the video and music.

Great video, really shows the models off well!

DC - the attention to detail in your dioramas is amazing, a real labour of love. Definitely one of my favourite websites on the internet!

How about Longasuchus?

http://www.dinosaurcollectorsitea.com/Triassic_files/aetosaur2.jpg

Is that actually a Longasuchus figure? If so, where did it come from? It looks of a size with that small Lontic Postosuchus (another one!) but I don't recognize it.

And do you have a spare? ;)

Sorry for the picture cluttered with toys but is not the green bipedal creature on the far right supposed to be some sort of crocodilian-like archosaur?

I think it is based on a strange old picture of an allosaurid or megalosaurid--but given that only crocodilomorphs have those plates on the backs (rauisuchids, phytosaurs, crocodiles, aetosaurs) that's how I've always taken it to be (not that it really fit this poll--it wouldn't exactly crack the top 25, never mind 10!).

I've always thought of it as an Ornithosuchus.

Yeah, I know. Just figured it was a good place to ask.  ^-^

I had one of those when I was a kid, although the colours might have been different.  I'm pretty sure on its belly it was labelled Megalosaurus.  Aren't the plates on its back very much like those on the Invicta Megalosaurus, Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops?

Yeah, those show up on a few images and toys, but no dino would have had big, flat scutes like that (obviously, not the same as ankylosaur armor). And I've got at least two versions of that figure around here--plus another similar one, also with the dorsal scutes. Neither are from good companies.

Probably not intended as a Longosuchus. It is from a set of bin chinasaurs that I have not seen again. best guest it is supposed to be a nodosaur but you never can tell.  Legs too long for ateosaur or a nodosaur.  I could find and extra.  It is very small I use with my QRF figures.

The Kaprosuchus of Wild Safari is an exceptional figure. I especially like how they are perfectly carved teeth and the body of the animal.

It is a true masterpiece of Safari. Very hard to beat for another company of toy dinosaurs.


Moreover the Postosuchos of Wild Safari is a perfect figure that makes a good team with reddish WWD.

It's a shame that the Papo Kaprosuchus was late to the party... oh well.  :)

My vote goes to Bullyland's Arizonasaurus. What a fantastic choice for a prehistoric figure, and so far it's the only company that makes this species. I've built an entire collection around Arizonasaurus, comprised of quadrupedal, fin-backed, long-necked reptilians. Many might have been intended as Dimetrodons, but they are much closer to AZsaurus in appearance. I also had to throw in a vote for the Safari Toob's Dakosaurus. Again, a fantastic but underrepresented species.
Got Brachauchenius?
