Photos please!
« on: January 15, 2018, 09:34:16 PM »
During the Great Photobucket Disaster a few months ago, several older reviews on the Dinosaur Toy Blog were affected, including many by Libraraptor. As a result, he is undertaking the time-consuming and laborious task of updating his reviews with new images (uploaded to dinotoyblog.com). Unfortunately, he doesn't have local copies of everything, and so has opted to use new photos.

To this end, we're looking for assistance. If anybody has good walk-around photos (or is willing to take some) and would permit us to use them to illustrate the following image-less reviews, we would be extremely grateful! We would obviously credit the photos, too.

Protochirotherium (Bullyland)
Tyrannosaurus (Larami)
Therizinosaurus (Bullyland)
Velociraptor (World of History by Schleich)
Brachiosaurus (Saurierpark Kleinwelka, Sachsen)
Deinotherium (Bullyland)
Ankylosaurus (Larami)
Megatherium (Marolin / VEB Plaho)
Andrewsarchus (Bullyland)
Nodosaurid (Furkan)
Diatryma (Schleich)
Apatosaurus (“World Of Jura” by Goebel)
Entelodont (AAA)
Triceratops (Simba)
Plateosaurus (Bullyland mini)
Spinophorosaurus by Bullyland
Majungasaurus (CollectA)
Hesperornis (Primeval by Character Options)
Mastodonsaurus (Bullyland)
Compsognathus (alias “Velociraptor”) by Tchibo
Deinonychus (Bullyland)
Dimetrodon (Inpro)
Apatosaurus (Bullyland Micro Tiere)
Brontosaurus (Marolin / VEB Plaho)
Oviraptor (Papo)
Apatosaurus (Schleich 2008)
Styracosaurus Maquette by Sideshow Dinosauria. Original photos by Jeremy Killian, if we can track him down?
Pachycephalosaurus (Battat)
Muttaburrasaurus (Collecta)
Scelidosaurus (Collecta Deluxe)
Deinonychus (AAA)
Paraceratherium (Collecta)
Sphenacodon (Linde)
Diatryma by Bullyland
Tyrannosaurus (Linde)
Edaphosaurus (Bullyland)

Other reviews (not by Libraraptor) missing photos:
Cladoselache (Kaiyodo series 1)
Saichania (Kaiyodo)
Tyrannosaurus rex (baby) (Jurassic Park: ‘Dinosaurs 2’, Kenner)

I suppose the easiest way to help is to email images to [email protected] Even just one or two would help lessen our burden, so thanks in advance.  O:-)

I can take care of the Bullyland Protochirotherium, Edaphosaurus, Diatryma and Deinonychus. Could add the Therizinosaurus aswell, but mine lacks one toe. Would take me some days though as I need to find time to get some of them from the attic and make photos.

Regarding the Dinosaur Toy Blog reviews that had Photobucket images, would it be viable to use the Internet Archive website to retrieve the photos?  For example, entering the URL for the Bullyland Therizinosaurus review allowed me to view the photos in the review again: https://web.archive.org/web/20170704132820/http://dinotoyblog.com/2012/08/19/therizinosaurus-bullyland/

I can add the Collecta Paracera and Schleich '08 Apatosaur. Wish that I had some of the others on the list! But who knows the solution suggested in the last post may make this request redundent anyhow.

Great idea to use the Way Back Machine! Yes, that will help us salvage some of the originals (at least the resized versions that appeared on the blog) - I just got the Therizinosaurus images from your link, and it seems like the others should work, too. Help from other members is still appreciated. I'll strike through the reviews listed above as they're fixed, to save us duplicating work.  :D

This Kaiyodo Saichania review needs some help.

http://dinotoyblog.com/2008/02/04/saichania-dinomania-series-1-by-kaiyodo/

I think I saw its picture the first time when now I tried it with this WayBack Machine, so the picture probably wasn't the victim of the Photobucket Purge but I don't know why the picture disappaered. But even if we can see the pictures with the help of this site this review still contains just one picture.

Yes, the above request relates only to Libraraptor's reviews. There are other reviews that also need some work. The Kaiyodo Sachania review was posted by EmperorDinobot when he was a reviewer. He had uploaded his image onto Photobucket, the links to which I deleted when I purged the blog recently. So, if anyone has pictures of that one too, please send 'em on! Cheers!

I was able to salvage Libraraptor's original images, but thanks anyway! If Libraraptor wants to replace them he is welcome to, thanks for the offer.

So cool to know some Pictures could be salvaged! Still, some are missing, of about 20 Reviews, and I´m about to hand them in later. Thank you, Adam and Helge! Did I forget anyone?!

I split this topic to make it easier to find the list in the OP of this thread.

Another review missing pics is the Cladoselache (Kaiyodo series 1) reviewed by Cordylus.

So, I will add it to the list, along with any others I happen to stumble over.

I can take some Cladoselache photos. The review references the brown version, but would you like a shot or two of the blue one as well?

Oh, yes please, comparison shots would be welcome. I can update the review. Whatever happened to Cordylus anyway?
