I just decided to redo this thread since I've bought a lot of things recently, and will probably be expanding my collection in the coming months. I also want to focus my collection pictures on my prehistoric stuff, instead of having all my other things shown too (though some unrelated figures will be seen due to how I have my stuff on display). Please disregard previous comments (made before Oct 2017), since they were posted when I still had my first images up (which were also hosted on Photobucket which no longer allows sharing images on other sites). What is seen below is not everything I own.

I have most of the Hasbro Jurassic World toys, but most are in a box stored away. I also have the JW Bashers and Biters Allosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, both Tyrannosaurus (green and brown), brown Stegoceratops, Growlers Charlie, Delta, Echo, and the Vehicle Pack Indominus rex. I also have a bunch of the miniature figures that came in the tubes (Dimorphodon, Mosasaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Pteranodon, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus, Velociraptor). Maybe I'll take them out later and get a pic of them.

There are also many other things I own, that are not related to prehistoric creatures not mentioned or seen. Most are various action figures. Also not shown yet is my plushie collection which consists of a few prehistoric themed plushies. I'm waiting to receive my Paleozoic Pal Tiktaalik and Dimetrodon before I take any pics of the plushies.

Safari LTD and Battat Terra prehistoric figures mix (dinosaurs, mammals, etc):


Safari LTD Cambrian Life TOOB figures + Prehistoric Sharks TOOB figures + Safari LTD Coelacanth + Prehistoric Pins (from Kickstarter), in front of my 29 gallon aquarium:


Jurassic World toy mix (these are just the ones I have on display) + other things:


I will update this when I receive my BotM action figures, or when I expand my figure collection.

Thanks for sharing your collection! I started to collect this year, so mine is fairly small too. The coming year it's going to be great for growing collections,  with the great offers that safari has! And what other companies will show us soon I hope.

Great start.  Any idea what figures you would like to get?   Even though I have a lot of issues with the JW line, I do enjoy my mosasaurus.  It sits proudly by my desk.
Nice Toothless as well.

Thanks, the both of you. From Safari, I'm thinking about finally picking up the Cambrian Life TOOB and Prehistoric Sharks TOOB and the two trees if I can, and maybe the Gastornis, Feathered T. rex, and their new Werewolf before the end of the year. From Papo I'd like to eventually get the Allosaurus and Dimetrodon, and then there's the Schleich Dunkleosteus (I do like the Safari one as well though). There are many other Safari figures I'd like to get, maybe some more Papo figures, but the ones listed so far are the ones I'm prioritizing for now.

On the whole I tend to be interested in Paleozoic creatures and mostly, Cretaceous period dinosaurs. Maybe the occasional figure on the side that catches my interest whether it be dinosaurs, other prehistoric creatures, extant animals, or even movie, tv, and/or video game figures, etc.

I decided to dig out the rest of my JW collection, and some other things on the side I felt like sharing (not related to dinosaurs though). I also wanted to share a pic of the Paleozoic Pal Ammonoid plushie I recieved in the mail yesterday (alongside some of my other favorite plushies). Aside from the JW stuff, there's a Schleich wolf (my only figure from them as of now), another hand made wolf figure (with real fur I think?), that my dad picked up for me when he went to this fishing and game show a year or so ago. The dragon was given to me from my high school roommate (a few years after graduating from high school), after they went to the state's renaissance faire, and I missed out on going with her because I was sick then. Then there's that giant Legend of Zelda Link figure that my dad got for my birthday earlier this year.  These will probably be the last pics for now, until I get something new, which will probably be later this year.

Edit: Removed links to images, since I need to repost everything in on my imgur account now instead of photobucket.

Wow, your right, it really looks gloomy.  Does it like butter tarts?  That usually cheers people up.

I have updated my thread with new temporary images, since I removed the Photobucket ones. I'll retake them with my dad's phone's camera later so there can be better quality pics. I'll try to take an image of all my other JW stuff too. After that the next time I update this will be after I can get some other Safari LTD figures. I want to get the Ammonite, Deinocheirus, Iguanodon, Sauropelta, and Yutyrannus this month.

Well I decided to take a picture of what my most recent assortment looks like (minus the extant animals and toob figures, and the Yowie Anomalocaris, which is with my toob figures on the table in front of my aquarium). Here's the pic:



Edit: Replaced the pic with one of better quality taken from my dad's phone, instead of mine.

Lovely figures! Safari Deinocheirus is so tempting to me, even when I already have one by CollectA and I like it, but damn one figure per species rule! I like the Safari one a lot. Also I like your tank picture, I love neon tetras.

Thanks. I've actually been thinking about that rule, but I already have two T. rex figures (not counting my JW stuff), and I'm planning on getting the 2017 Safari Ltd Parasaurolophus. I've also been thinking about getting maybe the Battat Terra Cryolophosaurus and Papo one. So maybe 2 if anything for me, since my space is really limited now. Although I might need to keep only one on display down the line. While I had them in the picture, I've had to move my Cenozoic creatures to another area in my room (on my bookshelf), just to make some more space.

Better late then never but here's some of the first Beasts of the Mesozoic figures I've received:

This was the first batch (Amber Nestlings and Desert and Mountains Environment accessory packs) that I received last month:


I received the other half of the accessory packs that I ordered last Friday today. Here all of them are:


Packaging:


Wetlands:


Desert:


Forest (minus the fern accessory, which came in the Wetlands set):


Mountains:


I really need to get an updated pic of my Safari Ltd + other figure collection, and my prehistoric themed plushies. added here at some point.

I am tempted by the Beasts of the Mesozoic figures, they are very beautiful figures. Above all I am very interested in their ferns and other prehistoric plants I think they are the best that exist today in the market.  :P

Aside from the creatures included, the bases, nests, and plants (and skull in the Desert pack) are really awesome additions that can probably be used alongside other figures from Safari Ltd, etc, to make some interesting diorama scenes. If you want the one with the most plants, I'd recommend the Wetlands set since it has two ferns, and the horsetails accessory. The Forest set only comes with the log and tree, and the Mountains set comes with the tree, a fern, and a rock. The Desert does not come with any plants, but some rocks and the Protoceratops skull. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look too.

Nice you got them all already! I'm still tempted by the wetlands and desert ones.

@Syndicate Bias I only have a few other figures on my wishlist at this point (most being JWFK related), but I'd like to get the Papo Dimetrodon (and maybe the new Acrocanthosaurus, and last year's Cryolophosaurus), the new CollectA Dunkleosteus and Iguanodon (and the prehistoric marine tube released last year. Maybe the CollectA Parasaurolophus as well). I still would like to pick up a few of the older Safari Ltd figures at some point too (the Ceolophysis, Postosuchus, Doedicurus, maybe some others).

I think after I pick up the JWFK stuff it will be safe to say that my collection will finally have grown out of its small phase (possibly even now with all the BotM figures). I started this thread way back when I only had pretty much just the Hasbro JW stuff. Then came the Safari Ltd figures, a few other things, and the BotM stuff now.

That reminds me I should probably update this thread now that I have the first batch of my BotM deluxe figures. However I want to do some rearranging (and cleaning) before taking pics, since I also want to get pics of the rest of my collection (for the things moved prior). Some temp pics in the BotM thread to show what it currently looks like though.
