Review and photographs by bmathison1972, edited by Dinotoyblog
Arthropleura armata is an extinct species of millipede that lived in North America and Europe during the Carboniferous Period. Millipede figures are rare in toy/model/figure form, and if you have all your fingers intact, you can count on one hand the number of such figures available!

Review: Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

2.8 (29 votes)
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 Mesozoic (and one Paleozoic) Meanies.

Review: Coiled-Toothed Shark/Helicoprion (Lost Kingdoms Series B by Yowie)

3.4 (5 votes)

Evolution has thrown out some wonderful oddities across time life has existed on earth. The shark family has shown some incredible adaptations leaning towards the bizarre. From early examples like Stethacanthus, to the modern species, like the Hammerhead and Saw shark. One of the more bizarre sharks known from the fossil record, found Asia, Australia, North America and Eastern Europe: Helicoprion, with it’s weird tooth whorls.

Review: Cooperoceras (Prehistoric World by CollectA)

4.8 (27 votes)

Over the last 3 years CollectA has produced FIVE extinct cephalopods spanning the geologic ages between the Ordovician and the Cretaceous. A magnificent achievement that appears to have come to an end, for alas, no cephalopod has been announced for 2023. But do not despair, with figures of Koolasuchus and Anomalocaris on the horizon CollectA is continuing their streak of releasing the most diverse and interesting assortment of prehistoric critters of any mainstream company.

Review: Dimetrodon (“Kamsaurier Permzeit” Margarinefiguren by Wagner)

2.8 (6 votes)

Just recently someone on the forum asked what would happen if there was nothing more to review, and I thought, well, this probably will never happen. Since there are still so many interesting old collectibles and oddities out there which could keep us busy for years. And do not forget about the new releases which seem to get more and better every year!

Review: Dimetrodon (2011 version, Bullyland)

3.6 (7 votes)
German company Bullyand seem to be slipping off the radar a little bit in recent years but still continue to provide new releases every twelve months for their Museum Line, although in rather small quantities. 2011 saw two new figures released by Bullyland, both resculpts of previously produced species.

Review: Dimetrodon (Airfix)

4.6 (5 votes)

And now, I complete the great Dimetrodon model kit trilogy with the final set by Airfix. Airfix is a very famous name in the model kit world, and is one I remember from making Spitfires and Hurricanes when I was younger. They often feature dramatic artwork on their boxes, and here we see that the prehistoric creatures they made were no exception.

Review: Dimetrodon (Carnegie Collection by Safari ltd.)

Review and photos by Griffin
Dimetrodon is probably one of the most well known non dinosaur prehistoric creatures of all time.  It lived during the early to middle Permian era way before any dinosaur and is actually more closely related to us mammals than it is to other kinds of reptiles. 

Review: Dimetrodon (CollectA)

4.9 (24 votes)
For hours, Thorn has been wandering along the banks in search of a meal. Now, at long last, her eye catches sight of a telltale movement in the murky water. Immediately, she plunges into the river and sinks her teeth into the unsuspecting shark’s flesh. The shark retaliates with a vicious bite of its own, but Thorn ignores the pain and hauls her victim out onto dry land.

Review: Dimetrodon (Inpro)

2.7 (9 votes)

Enough has been said about Dimetrodon. Although it is not a dinosaur, it is among the four best-known prehistoric creatures, together with T.rex, Mammoth and “Brontosaurus”. Dimetrodon is a favourite choice of nearly every company. This seems to have a long tradition, since even Marx and Linde in the 50s and 60s released this Permian synapsid as a figure.

Review: Dimetrodon (Invicta)

4.9 (15 votes)
Ah, Dimetrodon – where would any dinosaur toy line be without this oddly anachronistic sail-backed pelycosaur? And where would I be if I didn’t drop names that I semi-understand? In similar places, one would imagine. Almost every dino toy company has churned one out, from Carnegie (ugly) to Bullyland to UKRD to Carnegie (better) to Inpro.

Review: Dimetrodon (Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs by Kenner)

3.7 (9 votes)
And now let’s tackle some Jurassic Park toys. First up is Dimetrodon. The famous finned ferocity first appeared in the original 1993 JP line. The humble toy must have been very popular indeed, as it would go on to be recoloured and re-released several times over the course of a decade.

Review: Dimetrodon (Jurassic World: Dominion Captivz by ToyMonster)

Mattel isn’t the only company producing Jurassic World toys and for this review we’re changing things up and introducing Captivz by ToyMonster to the blog. The Jurassic World Captivz are blind bag style toys originally released in Australia that started showing up in the US a couple years ago, with their Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous set.

Review: Dimetrodon (Jurassic World: Dominion, Extreme Damage by Mattel)

3.6 (17 votes)

With the release of Jurassic World: Dominion, Dimetrodon has finally made its long-awaited film debut. But despite only just now being featured on-screen, Dimetrodon has been long associated with the Jurassic franchise. A toy of the Permian synapsid was released all the way back in 1993 as part of Kenner’s first wave of Jurassic Park toys.

Review: Dimetrodon (Kellogg’s, cereal freebie)

2.3 (9 votes)

Ah, another Dimetrodon! This Permian synapsid belongs to the group of usual suspects in the competition for the most popular prehistoric animal. It is well-known, highly popular and long ago iconic. So nothing has to be written about the species itself here anymore, I guess.

Still there are many surprising figures of it out there, and this Kellog´s cereal freebie is one of them.
