Pentaceratops Beasts of the Mesozoic

4.7 (15 votes)

Nothing has brought me more joy in recent years than David Silva’s Beasts of the Mesozoic figures. Some may call me a material boy, and that’s ok. We are humans, and we thrive on material culture. Part of that culture is our toys and figures which enrich our lives in an aesthetically pleasing fashion.

Jurassic World: Dominion Roar Strikers Pteranodon (Mattel)

1.3 (46 votes)

Here we go again, for the last time, I hope. I, EmperorDinobot will now give you the final Mattel Pteranodon figure that uses the mold first used by the Roarivores Pteranodon from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and which has been retooled several times, as you can see here, here, here, here and here.

Jurassic World Destruct-A-Saurs Helicopter Set with Pteranodon (Mattel)

1.4 (63 votes)

EmperorDinobot here with another Pteranodon from the Jurassic World Franchise by Mattel. Destruct-A-Saurs saw very little distribution across the US, and the few that were found were purchases along the southern border, so collectors were scrambling to get these from our Mexican pals who were always willing to help.

Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Primal Attack Sound Strike by Mattel)

Due to the horrors of Covid-19, I, EmperorDinobot had to stay away from stores for a while during early 2020, which was when the bulk of the Jurassic World: Primal Attack animals came out. Mattel has given us sooooo many figures that it became hard for me to keep track of them.

Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Sound Strike by Mattel)

2.2 (19 votes)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

The thing that strikes me, Emperor Dinobot, as both creative and boring, is Mattel’s never-ending releases of the same mold with only slight differences. These Pteranodon toys are all the same, and the Camp Cretaceous Primal Attack Sound Strike version is no exception.

Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Dino Rivals by Mattel)

1.7 (17 votes)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

Today, we shall continue looking at the mainline Pteranodons from Mattel’s Jurassic World line, this time at the Dual Attack figure! Do I, EmperorDinobot like this figure? Read on to find out!

As I explained in my previous Mattel review here, all mainline Pteranodon figures measure 8 inches long x 16 inches wide and all sport the same general mold, but each one is more than a repaint.

Pteranodon (Jurassic World Roarivores by Mattel)

2.5 (11 votes)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

When the first wave of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom figures by Mattel came out, I, Emperor Dinobot, was highly pleased. I was so pleased, I endeavored to post the first reviews of the first wave of Roarivores here, here, and here during the summer of 2018.

Miragaia (Jurassic World: Ferocious Pack by Mattel)

2.4 (14 votes)

Review and images by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

I, Emperor Dinobot, would like to quote, or rather, paraphrase what someone said a few months ago upon seeing pictures of Mattel’s Miragaia: “This is an evil-looking figure!” I am not sure whether they were referring to the paint job or to the lack of accuracy, but I have to disagree.

Tanystropheus (Jurassic World: Fierce Force by Mattel)

2.5 (11 votes)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

I, Emperor Dinobot, was not very surprised to hear that Mattel would make a Tanystropheus figure. They had already done genera such as Scutosaurus and Postosuchus, along with numerous other non-dinosaur figures. Kenner also made a Tanystropheus toy and a bunch of repaints in the 90s’, so it was only natural that Mattel would follow suit.

Troodon (Jurassic World: Attack Pack by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

Hello everybody! We all know and love the myth, the dinosaur, the legendary Troodon, and I, Emperor Dinobot will now proceed to give some thoughts to the Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Attack Pack toy by Mattel!

I may be a Jurassic fan, but I have to admit that I have never played Telltale’s Jurassic Park: The Game.

Mononykus (Jurassic World: Dino Escape by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

Hello once again! Today I, EmperorDinobot shall lead you through a short review. We shall be looking at the differences between the Dino Escape Mononykus repaint and the original version that has been already reviewed here on the blog. Let us jump right in, shall we?

Siats (Jurassic World: Massive Biters by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

Hello everyone! Welcome back to yet another quirky review by me, Emperor Dinobot! We shall delve once again into the world made by InGen and discuss one of its more visually striking theme park monsters, the indomitable Siats meekerorum!

You may be wondering the same thing I was when I first saw this work in progress announced.

Moros (Jurassic World: Ferocious Pack by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

Hello, and welcome to another EmperorDinobot review! Today we shall be looking at one of Jurassic Park: Dominion‘s new dinosaur figures from Mattel, Moros intrepidus!

I must admit, I knew almost nothing about Moros going into this review, and I do wish to thank Mattel for producing figures of animals I had rarely heard of.

Einiosaurus (Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

Hello, dinosaur toy lovers! Today we shall continue making merry as we delve deeper into the godsend that are the Beasts of the Mesozoic ceratopsians line! Allow me, EmperorDinobot, to be your host as we look at the bison lizard, Einiosaurus, and what makes it more special than the others, not that the others are not special, of course.
