Velociraptor (Beasts of the Mesozoic 1:18 by Creative Beasts Studio)

4.8 (91 votes)

For all the dozens and dozens of Velociraptor toys & models which swarm the market, there are criminally few which attempt to depict the famous “swift plunderer” as something even remotely resembling what we know of the real-life animal. When sculptor and toy designer David Silva announced his articulated Beasts of the Mesozoic line in 2015, beginning with a series of 1:6 scale, scientifically accurate dromaeosaurs, collectors were understandably very excited at the prospect.

Before I begin this review, I’ll just say that I’m relatively new to the dinosaur model scene, so there may be things I am not looking for or may have missed. That said, this is an initial review of the product I received.

Velociraptor‘s name rose to fame in the early 90s’ with the release of Jurassic Park, despite the creature in the movie being actually based on the related Deinonychus. It wasn’t until 2003, however, that, alongside a woolly mammoth, the Carnegie Collection produced a Velociraptor.

There’s no doubt that Velociraptor is very common dinosaur on the market, but Schleich has created at least seven versions of the infamous dromaeosaur over the years. Today’s review is of their latest take on the speedy predator, and sadly, it is a downgrade from the 2017 Utahraptor.

Creative Beast offers a wide selection of interesting model resin kits in addition to a poseable Velociraptor and Oviraptor available in various plastics at 1/12th scale. I ordered the basic raptor, because I was enchanted with idea of being able to use it as a drawing maquette, but I also requested the Oviraptor tail and wing because they fit my personal aesthetic for how raptors should look.

Back in the pre-JP era, TV documentaries about dinosaurs were a rare sight on German TV. As a dinophile, it was a viewing obligation when the public TV station aired a four part series about dinosaurs in 1991. The documentary’s title was–you probably guessed it–Dinosaur!

Velociraptor (Deluxe)(Procon/CollectA)

At long last, we come to CollectA’s first effort to bring the ever-popular Maniraptora clade to their generously proportioned Deluxe line. It’s hard to go wrong with Velociraptor; the name is known throughout the world, and the basic body plan remains recognizable despite the efforts of a certain motion picture.

“Heads up, fellow dinosaur lovers! Dr. Bella Bricking and Beth Buildit here! Be brave and be alert! Today we’re going to examine a very dangerous Lego dinosaur: Velociraptor! That’s why I’m wearing this protective gear!”
“Doc, that’s a fencing mask.”
“Yes, I know that, Beth. This was all I could afford on a paleontologist’s salary.”

Velociraptor (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

2.1 (15 votes)
Beginning with Jurassic Park in 1993, Velociraptor has been a household name, a dinosaur that everybody knows—or thinks they know. Our understanding of this diminutive dromaeosaurid has changed quite a lot over the past three decades, thus rendering the scaly, lizard-like depictions completely obsolete. Unfortunately, the public is still slow to accept this reality, and it doesn’t help when toy companies like Hasbro and Chap Mei continue to flood the market with the old depictions.

If ever there was a dinosaur in need of a public relations team, it’s Velociraptor. It seems no matter how far we march into the feathery future, the poor protobird still seems to have one sickle-clawed toe in the past, and this is particularly evident in the area of toys and collectibles.

Velociraptor (Feathered Version by Recur)

I’m really happy that Recur exists and is making toy dinosaurs. I’m a big fan of CollectA and Safari Ltd., but I realize that they are cost prohibitive to a lot of collectors, and while I enjoy cheap knockoff toys (I don’t care for the term “Chinasaur”), part of me always hesitates to give them to kids, knowing that the original toy they got the design from is probably 70 years old, and was scientifically inaccurate then.
