Allosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

4.2 (6 votes)
Photos by Dan and Jeremy
Although David’s 1:72 scale Antediluvian series has been graced with a few exotic species, he’s giving plenty of love to the classics as well. His considerable talents often present the animal in a new and exciting light, such as the rare uplifted Stegosaurus or surprisingly common closed-jawed theropods.

Allosaurus Skeleton Model (Dinostoreus)

4.8 (4 votes)
If you’re a regular reader of Prehistoric Times magazine, you’ve probably noticed the prime ad space that always seems to be occupied by Dinostoreus. This is a good thing, though. In addition to supporting such a great publication, Dinostoreus really embodies the mature aesthetic and academic priority of the seasoned dinosaur enthusiast.

Allosaurus on Carcass (Fauna Casts)

There is much to be said of the distinction between toy and model. For some, it represents a leap from the child’s plaything to the adult collectible. Others may note the significant difference in price range. Of course, getting to see an artist’s uncompromising vision of a prehistoric world is exciting as well, and few mass produced pieces tend to deliver such a vision.

Allosaurus (Resin Model by Shane Foulkes)

However vast and complicated cyberspace may be, I would say that the Dinosaur Toy Forum did more than any other website to revitalize my interest in this subject. It was here that I first heard of the sculptor named Shane Foulkes. People spoke of him with an odd kind of reverence, as though he was some divine entity with the power to bring dinosaurs back to life.

Acrocanthosaurus (Salvat)

Review by Patrick Padilha
As you may know, it’s not easy to choose a figure to review when you have a small collection and most of the figures you do have were already inspected by one of the expert collectors of DTB. I was wondering which item of my collection I could review and I did spot the perfect figures for my reviews.

Stegosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

4.5 (11 votes)
Rounding out David’s acclaimed line of 1:72 models is this 3 inch long reconstruction of Stegosaurus stenops. The upright posture will be one of the first things to draw the eye. It’s a refreshing twist on what is otherwise a very traditional dinosaur. Some may be skeptical as to whether this pose was anatomically feasible.

Tenontosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

4 (4 votes)
The grand history of paleontology puts quite a bit of emphasis on Iguanodon. As a child, I could never understand why people failed to recognize this dinosaur, especially when all the books lavished it with so much attention. It was almost as though they weren’t reading the books at all.

Apatosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

5 (7 votes)
Apatosaurus has come a long way over the years. What was once a sluggish swamp-dwelling behemoth is now more tightly built, with muscular columns of legs supporting a powerful body, graceful neck, and elegant whip-like tail. As the rest of the world struggles to keep pace with the latest paleontological research, David Krentz is always perched on the cutting edge.

T. rex Hatchling (Dino Discoveries by Safari)

3 (8 votes)
Review by Patrick Krol
Since I started collecting dinosaur figures I wanted to have dinosaur eggs in my collection, but couldn’t find a good one anywhere. Then, when I discovered about the foreign museum lines through internet, I found out that Safari had done some hatchling dinosaurs and they were soon in my “things to buy” list.

Hyaenodon (AAA)

3.6 (7 votes)
Review and photos by Mihnea (Wildheart)
Existing for approximately 26 million years, Hyaenodonts were some of the largest predators of the Late Eocene and Early Miocene epochs. Their name comes from the sharp hyena-like teeth used to tear apart possible prey. The skulls of these animals were huge and well equipped for hunting, but their brains were quite small, something typical in primitive carnivorous mammals.
