Acheroraptor (Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series by Creative Beast Studio)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy With only two weeks left for the Beasts of the Mesozoic ceratopsian series campaign (as of this writing), it’s about time I got to writing perhaps the last of my reviews of these figures. either until I acquire more of the raptors or until I can get …

Acrocanthosaurus (2018 Version by Papo)

Review and images by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs,’ edited by Suspsy. I usually do not like reviewing a repaint of an original sculpt that has already been reviewed here on the blog, simply due to the fact that I am left with not much to talk about except for the new paint job. As you may …

Acrocanthosaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

Review and photo by Tomhet, edited by Dinotoyblog. The Battat Acrocanthosaurus is almost impossible to find nowadays. But there’s a good reason for that: it’s a beautiful replica that puts to shame almost any other version. Chronologically speaking, the Acrocanthosaurus is an appropiate choice for Battat. In 1996, the first reconstructed skeleton of this early …

Acrocanthosaurus (Hercules by Rebor)

Review by Galen “Shadowknight1” Hesson and photography by tyrantqueen When most people think of large predatory dinosaurs from North America in the Cretaceous period, they usually think of Tyrannosaurus rex. Fair enough. He’s big, he’s mean, and he’s been well known for a long time, allowing many different models to be made of him. But …

Acrocanthosaurus (Papo)

Review and photographs by Rajvinder “IrritatorRaji” Phull, edited by Suspsy Like diamonds to a woman, Papo is a dinosaur lover’s best friend. While they tend to fall short in terms of scientific accuracy, their models are renowned for being packed to the brim with detail. Their offerings are pleasing to look at, even if it’s …

Adasaurus (Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series by Creative Beast Studio)

Today we shall be looking at the Beasts of the Mesozoic Adasaurus mongoliensis, aka the evil spirit lizard from Mongolia! If you are reading this, you probably already know the whole story behind Creative Beast Studios and the production of this exciting …

Agustinia (Deluxe Collection, CollectA)

Review and Photos by Nicholas Anning (“Brontozaurus”). Edited by Plesiosauria. CollectA/Procon is somewhat unique among dinosaur toy companies in that they have an extensive range of dinosaur toys which represent relatively obscure dinosaurs. While these toys seem to vary in quality (to say the least), they at least deserve points for trying. Which brings us …

Agustinia (Procon/CollectA)

Review by EmperorDinobot, edited by Plesiosauria. Once upon a while, companies decide to make some very obscure dinosaur genera. Procon is one of those companies, releasing this year a number of dinosaurs not many have heard of, such as Becklespinax, Rebbachisaurus, and so on. Agustinia is one such dinosaur. Agustinia ligabuei isn’t a well known …

Alamosaurus (CollectA)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria. One of the last and most massive of the sauropods, Alamosaurus sanjuanensis, was a colossal titanosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. Its reign lasted right up until the K-T extinction and it lived in the same environments as Tyrannosaurus rex – it has been found all over …

Alioramus (CollectA)

Review by Dilopho, photos by Halichoeres, and edited by Suspsy Welcome back, readers! I hope you’ve had a nice New Year! 2017 is bringing some great new CollectA figures into the market, but the one we’ll be looking at today is one from 2009. And . . . it shows. To me, this Alioramus shows …

Allosaurus (2018 Version)(Nature World by Boley)

Review and photos by Skinny Davenport, edited by Suspsy Wow. I saw this figure at Walmart the other day and after some of the comments I’ve received about Boley’s Nature World dinosaurs being “Chinasaurs,” I just had to review some of these new releases for 2018, which are MUCH more accurate.This is a marked improvement …

Allosaurus (Adventure Force)

Review and photographs by Strawberry Crocodile, edited by Suspsy Adventure Force, from what I can gather, is a Walmart brand that mostly sells repackaged knockoff NERF guns, so I didn’t expect much quality from their toys. The other Adventure Force animals I saw alongside this one were generic 80s-style tripodal dinosaur models that they’ve apparently …

Allosaurus (Dual Attack)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy Back in May 2019, the Dual Attack Allosaurus and Nasutoceratops toys began showing up on shelves at Walmart, which caught people by surprise, as no images of these had been revealed online beforehand. The packaging for these two toys in particular was different from the rest of …

Allosaurus (Imperial)

Review and photos by Bryan Divers, edited by Suspsy My favourite dinosaur has been Allosaurus for many years. Recently I found this figure on eBay and when she came in the mail, she was bigger and prettier than I had imagined. That was when I knew I had to do a review. I searched high …

Allosaurus (Mesozoo)

Review and photographs by Stolpergeist, edited by Suspsy As of this writing, there are currently three species of Allosaurus recognized: A. fragilis, A. jimmadseni, and A. europaeus. The former two American species are mostly represented in toy form, with almost every one of them being A. fragilis and three of the ones from Schleich being A. jimmadseni, as they are based on the …
