Top 10 Triceratops Toys [Complete]
« on: June 21, 2018, 08:43:31 PM »
So, I just received the 2018 Wild Safari Triceratops, and I absolutely adore it. Not only is it my new favorite Triceratops model but it might very well be the best Triceratops toy, ever! Matter of opinion of course, the Battat is pretty great too. So what is the best Triceratops out there? What are the top 10? As usual I'll start a list below and add suggestions. Remember, this is not a list of all the Triceratops toys out there. This is a short list for the top 10. If you're not going to vote for it then don't suggest it.

Missing the triceratops Dolly from PNSO, is for me the second best version of triceratops.

For me the best versions of triceratops are first Safari by Doug Watson, second triceratops by PNSO and very close or almost equal to that of PNSO the triceratops of Battat, the fourth triceratops for me preferred is that of Schleich 2018.

As regards other triceratops highlighted, for example, Kaiyodo's, Favorite's and to a lesser extent, Bullyland's.

My four triceratops for me better are the following:

1st Triceratops Safari
2nd or 3rd Triceratops PNSO / Triceratops Battat
4th Triceratops Schleich
5th Triceratops Sega or Triceratops Kaiyodo
6th Triceratops Favorite
7th Triceratops Bullyland

It is my personal appreciation. I do not include in my case among the triceratops Collecta's dead triceratops because although it is a great paleoartistic representation it is a dead triceratops, I do not live like the rest of the ones mentioned.

We used to have a short "stub" review of the second Replicasaurus Triceratops, a review that seems to have disappeared from both the "contents" and "company" sections. It was superior to the World of History sculpt, though it never received a full review, I'd recommend and vote for it.

Is that it? So should I make the poll then? No other suggestions? Or are these top tens just not as popular as they were a few years back?

Oh, yeah, PNSO made a big vinyl Triceratops in addition to Doyle that I think is very nice. Top 10 material, I'd say.

Do we know if it has a name, or something else I can label it?

I liked the AAA version from the 90's. I have it in many colors. Not the most accurate one out there, but it would certainly get my vote.
Got Brachauchenius?

If it will earn a vote it will be added.  8)

I guess it was the Age of Dinosaurs one? I don't think the big vinyl ones had the Christian names that the minis and 1:35 figures got. http://dinotoyblog.com/2016/12/22/triceratops-age-of-the-dinosaurs-by-pnso/

No problem, I'll give this and the Apatosaurus poll another day for suggestions and then I'll setup the polls.

Gwangi - a small spin on the Schleich replicasaurus which you added to the list (thanks): actually there are two replicasaurus models. The earlier one (replicasaurus 1) is a brownish-grey and has its head down and forward in a charging position. It was superceded by the brown one that had been listed on our "content" page for many years (replicasaurus 2), and was quite superior to its predecessor.

Here we go, the thread has been up long enough that any suggestions should have been gathered and added. Sorry if your personal favorite is not on there. 10 votes per person so you can make your own top 10 list. Have fun!

Aack! How can I possibly vote for only ten? Should make for an interesting list once the voting is complete!
