Last time I did a review of a Geoworld product, I said that the company likes to put feathers only on species that are known to have feathers in the fossils. Well, unfortunately I should’ve done more research (and a little more glancing at my collection) because that was not the case.

Review: Utahraptor (Kenner, Jurassic Park series 2)

If you you are looking for an up-to-date, scientifically accurate dinosaur, this guy isn’t for you. However, if you like cool, vicious-looking, fun to play with dinosaurs, this figure is perfect.If you want to look at the Kenner Utahraptor with a scientist’s eye, there are very many problems; The short and bendy tail, the wrong positioning of the hands, the huge feet, the lack of feathers, and the over-sized claws.  

Review: Utahraptor (Walking with Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular)

Several months ago, I had the privilege to go and see the Walking with Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular. The full sized animatronic dinosaurs were a real spectacle, and Michaela Strachan did a wonderful job as the palaeontologist Huxley. I decided to grab a piece of memorabilia, so naturally, I went for a dino figure.

Review: Utahraptor (Walking With Dinosaurs by Toyway)

The spectacular Utahraptor by Toyway, based on the BBC Walking with Dinosaurs series, is a sleek, slender, rather mean-looking figure. The anatomy is accurate (except for the lack of feathers, but we’ll get to that in a moment), so this is one of the first ‘raptor’ figures to break away from the trendy but erroneous vision put forward by Jurassic Park.

Review: Utahraptor (Wild Safari, by Safari Ltd.)

The first specimen of  Utahraptor ostrommaysorum  was found in 1975.  In 1991 further remains were found, and like its fellow dromaeosaurids, it also sported a large, nightmare inducing, “killing” curved claw on its toe.  Thanks to its size being comparable to the over sized Velociraptors in Jurassic Park, and starring in a popular book written by paleontologist Robert T.

Review: Vagaceratops (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

4.7 (23 votes)
Safari have really performed excellently with the Wild Safari line this year. While their bipeds have attracted criticism from some quarters for having oversized feet (the Ceratosaurus being particularly irksome in this respect), it’s clear that the production values have really been ramped up – maybe even (whisper it) to Papo standards.

Review: Velociraptor “Alpha” (Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs by Hasbro)

1.9 (15 votes)
The closure of Kenner by parent company Hasbro in 2000 meant that an entirely different team would design the toys for Jurassic Park 3. Many dinosaur collectors, including myself, feel that the quality of the line took a major nosedive as a result. As proof, I give you the “Alpha” Velociraptor.

With the Jurassic World license now in the hands of people who actually care about the toys they make, we now have a large selection of toys that (so far) have proven to be a massive improvement over the poorly designed dreck that Hasbro has created for the last film in the series.

For the first time in Jurassic Park‘s history, Mattel now has the license from Universal to create toys for this franchise after Hasbro and Kenner had it for years before. No doubt Hasbro’s disappointing attempt at the previous toy line for Jurassic World (featuring screw holes on the sides of the figures, permanent flesh wounds on most, no sense of scale, and poor quality control) was the push that was needed to hand the reigns over to someone else.

Review: Velociraptor “BLUE” (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Velociraptor is one of the best known dinosaurs in the world, and it owes its popularity to Jurassic Park.  On screen, it is a cunning and deadly foe that is smart, fast, social, and hunts in groups so it can lay traps for its quarry.  In reality, it was small 3ft dinosaur from Mongolia that had feathers.

Mattel has made more ”Blue” toys (as well as other Velociraptors) than you can shake a stick at. Today, we will be taking a look at one of several incarnations of the beloved raptor: their Jurassic World Dominion Ferocious Pack version.

Review: Velociraptor “Cyclops” (Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs by Kenner)

3.4 (15 votes)
The various Jurassic Park lines have given us many Velociraptor toys over the years (and more still to come). One of the more interesting ones is the battle-hardened “Cyclops.”

Cyclops first appeared in the 1997 Lost World line, but like many of the smaller JP toys, it was re-released in subsequent years.

Review: Velociraptor “Delta” (Amber Legacy Collection by Mattel)

3.7 (13 votes)

There aren’t a lot of dinosaur toys on the market that specialize in articulation (David Silva’s Beasts of the Mesozoic line being the main shining exception right now), so the announcement of Mattel’s Amber Collection for their ongoing Jurassic World line was reason for excitement. Beginning in 2019, Mattel began select releases of dinosaurs, and later human characters, in the 6.5″ collector’s scale, with higher quality detail and poseability than the standard action figures they produce.

With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom just around the corner, I’m sure a lot of us are feeling the JP hype and nostalgia again pretty strongly. Today I’d like to take a look back at one of the finest toys from the Lost World line of toys: the electronic Velociraptor!
