My forum name is Bokisaurus or “Boki” for short. My real name is Ashley. I started collecting dinosaur figures 13 years ago. When I started, I collected only figures from my favorite groups of dinosaurs: sauropods, ceratopsians, and duckbills. It’s only within the last 8 years that I started adding figures from all the different groups. Besides collecting dinosaur toy figures, my other passion in life is Art and the outdoors. I take every opportunity I have to go out to the coast or the forest, taking some dino figures with me to make dioramas as an added bonus! I live in Seattle, Washington where it’s always sunny :o)

Euhelopus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus, edited by Suspsy
In the summer of 2016, the dinosaur collecting community was introduced to a new line of prehistoric figures that was little know outside of China. The PNSO ( short for Peking Natural Science-Art Organization) line of prehistoric figures started with six large dinosaurs and a set of six little baby dinosaurs.

Mercuriceratops (CollectA)

Without a doubt, CollectA has emerged as the leading toy company when it comes to producing ceratopsian figures. They love ceratopsians, and lets face it, who doesn’t? To date, they have, if I am correct, released 14 species, more than any other company.

Beishanlong (Deluxe by CollectA)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus, edited by Suspsy
Roaming the Early Cretaceous plains of what would one day become China was the giant Beishanlong grandis. A fairly recent addition to the growing flock of feathered dinosaurs, Beishanlong was only discovered in 2006.

Beishanlong belonged to the group of dinosaurs called ornithomimosaurs, more commonly known as the ostrich mimic dinosaurs.

Xenoceratops (CollectA)

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that CollectA has chosen yet another obscure species to join their expanding herd of ceratopsians. Meet Xenoceratops foremostensis – “alien horned-face”. Released as part of CollectA’s 2014 standard-sized figures, this late Cretaceous centrosaurine ceratopsian was first unearthed in 1958, but was just recently described as a new species.

Concavenator (CollectA)

Review by Nathan Morris (Takama), photos by Bokisaurus and Simon. Edited by Plesiosauria.
Concavenator corcovatus (meaning hunchback hunter from Cuenca). Was a 6-meter long, and primitive carcharodontosaurian that lived 130 milion years ago during the early Cretaceous Period. It was discovered last year [2010] at the Las Hoyas Plateau, and is notable for a hump that pertruded from its back.

Utahraptor (Battat) (Boston Museum of Science Collection)

4.3 (21 votes)
Review by Tomhet, photo by Bokisaurus, edited by Dinotoyblog
Good dromaeosaurid replicas are hard to come by. I completely abhor feathered renditions, so I was pretty excited when I finally got the Battat Utahraptor, a huge relative of the Deinonychus. Its skin is still pretty reptilic.

The colours (which would be cloned later for the Safari Baby Utahraptor) are bold, but acceptable: yellow, milky white and black (which is distributed in spots and a large splotch on the head).
