All Dilophosaurus reviews

Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

When it comes to tubes of miniatures, or “toobs,” Safari Ltd. remains the undisputed ruler. That said, they haven’t released any new toobs in years, and many of their prehistoric-themed ones are really showing their age. Today we’ll be examining one such example, Carnivorous Dinos, consisting of twelve miniatures representing a veritable Who’s Who of …

Dilophosaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

Before I begin my review of this figure, I would like to confess something. I’m a bit terrified writing this. It took me a fair bit of effort to work up the gumption to write for this blog to begin with, but now I’m trying to tackle a dinosaur toy heavyweight… one of the legendary …

Dilophosaurus (CollectA)

Review and photos by Nathan Morris (‘Takama’) It’s a well-known fact that CollectA’s prehistoric animal figures vary in quality. Some of them are good and incorporate current palaeontological knowledge, while others are poorly sculpted and sacrifice accuracy. The subject of today’s review belongs to the latter group, but to be fair, the toy was released …

Dilophosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Greetings DinoWaurriors! While being a great medium to introduce the masses to dinosaurs, films can have an awful effect on people by presenting inaccuracies and people drinking them in as fact. Such is the case with Dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park. In the film, it was presented as a small predator, venom spitting with a frill, …

Dilophosaurus (Jasman)

Next up on the Jasman list is the 2001 Dilophosaurus, after this we’ll have one more review and then the torture will be over. I must admit, I’ve grown weary of writing about these toys and this one is going to be a slog. The Jasman Dilophosaurus is not the worst in the line, that …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park 2009 toyline by Hasbro)

Review by forumite Fooman666 (edited by Horridus) Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs have had a profound impact on how the general public sees dinosaurs – to people who don’t know any better the subject of this review will always be their loveable little ‘spitter’. First things first – WOW! The Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus has always had a …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park by Dakin)

Just under a year ago I came to the Dinosaur Toy Forum inquiring about a small “Jurassic Park” Dilophosaurus figure, an almost forgotten memory of my childhood. I didn’t know who manufactured it or where to find one but with the help of other forum members I quickly learned about the figure in question. Just …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park by Kenner)

More Jurasic Park I’m afraid – although here we have a figure of an animal actually featured in the franchise. Dilophosaurus was last seen giving Wayne Knight a good seeing-to in the first movie, but proved so memorable that Hasbro were still releasing figures of it for the Jurassic Park 3 line. Two Dilophosaurus action …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack by Mattel)

Despite its many inaccuracies the Dilophosaurus in the original “Jurassic Park” was one of my favorite dinosaurs in the entire franchise. Fanciful yes, Spielberg deliberately altered the Dilophosaurus for his film for an added punch, and being the master movie director that he is, it worked. The Dilophosaurus scene in “Jurassic Park” was the scariest …

Dilophosaurus (Nature World by Boley)

Review and photos by Bryan Divers, edited by Suspsy Dilophosaurus has become very well known as a result of its appearance in Jurassic Park, where it approaches the would-be burglar Dennis Nedry in a friendly manner, but then becomes angry and spits venom at him, much like a modern cobra. The real Dilophosaurus, of course, …

Dilophosaurus (other one) (Jurassic Park by Kenner)

Following yesterday’s review of the electronic Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus, let’s look now at its more basic counterpart in the line – the classic ‘water pistol’ Dilophosaurus, among many people’s earliest and most fondly remembered dinosaur toys. It was the first JP toy I owned, actually. What is most striking when looking at this one in …

Dilophosaurus (Papo)

Review and photos by Tyrantqueen, edited by Plesiosauria. Up for review today is the ‘new for 2014’  Dilophosaurus by Papo, available from Amazon.com . Dilophosaurus was a medium-sized carnivore from the early Jurassic. It was memorably depicted in the Spielberg film “Jurassic Park” as undersized, with a frill and venom spitting like a cobra. Thankfully, …

Dilophosaurus (Savage Strike)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy The Legacy Collection line is one of the most controversial assortments of the Mattel Jurassic World toy line, what with having very poor distribution worldwide except for the most part in the US, and only at Target stores due to it being a retailer exclusive (exceptions being …

Dilophosaurus (Sideshow Dinosauria)

On November 8, 2012, Sideshow offered the first preview image of the Dilophosaurus statue. This choice of species does not come as a great surprise to many of us, as we all know that this creature was featured prominently in a rather successful film in 1993. Sideshow’s Dinosauria line first set out to demonstrate the …

Dilophosaurus (The First Giants by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Takama, edited by Suspsy Dilophosaurus has been a staple dinosaur ever since it appeared in a certain 20-year old movie that many companies like to pander to. Despite the inaccurate appearance in that movie, most companies base their Dilophosaurus on the real thing to an extent, making sure that their models …
