Review: Deinonychus (Kabaya)

4.4 (5 votes)
Review and photographs by Brandon. Edited by Plesiosauria.
In Japan, many figure companies are quite exciting due to their sculpting and selection of lines. For a good example take Bandai’s Godzilla Complete Works, Konami’s Gamera, Kaiyodo’s Dinotales to mention a few and if you know these lines and their respected makers then you know the orient also holds fantastic figures and not just the USA.

Review: Brachiosaurus (in egg) (‘Dinosauria Collection’ by Sideshow Collectibles)

Review and photographs by Brandon. Edited by Plesiosauria.
Back in February during the time of the 2009 Toy Fair, Sideshow Toys revealed that they were going to include in addition to their many lines a series of their own called “Sideshow’s Dinosauria.” I was extremely pleased with the first two offerings, Tyrannosaurus rex vs.

Review: Steppe Mammoth (Papo)

Review and photographs by ‘Bucketfoot-Al’. Edited by Plesiosauria.
Papo has produced some excellent prehistoric toy dinosaur figures recently as you undoubtedly know – not always accurate but always 100% high quality, with remarkable detail. But this review is about one of their discontinued figures from our more recent past.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (10th Anniversary) (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd) (Review 2)

4.5 (33 votes)
This is a reproduction of an original review of this figure by Tomhet, although I include an additional comment (*) from my own personal observation.

Talk about improvements. I mean, I have nothing against the old green Carnegie Rexy, it may not be a beauty but it was a solid combat replica, apparently aimed for the kids… and geared toward outdoor use.

Review: Stegosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

Review and photographs by ‘Tetonbabydoll’. Edited by Plesiosauria.
The first impression one might get when they see this Stegosaurus figure is its small size. The figure measures 6 inches long and 3.5 inches high at the tip of the highest plate. It is roughly the size of the original Carnegie and Battat stegosaurs.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Deluxe version, Procon/CollectA)

2.9 (23 votes)
Review and photograph by ‘Tyrannax’. Edited by Plesiosauria.
What a great improvement! So far, we’ve seen countless common and unheard of dinosaur names released by Procon (Now called CollectA), but due to the large amount of toys sold each year from this company, some will claim this affected the sculpt quality.

Review: Acrocanthosaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

4.2 (30 votes)
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 Cretaceous theropod (known as ‘Fran’) was unveiled.

Review: Dunkleosteus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

4.3 (24 votes)
Review by Tomhet, photographs by Dinotoyblog
As of late, Safari’s newcomers really have become something to look forward to, even more so if one of those newcomers is a late Devonian Placoderm (Placodermi are an exotic but fertile terrain only Kaiyodo, Prehistoric Panorama and Starlux had dared to explore) The Dunkleosteus is a fresh idea from Safari, and as such, it’s had a warm welcome among collectors.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

4.9 (39 votes)
Review by Tomhet. Edited by Plesiosauria.
T. rex is without a doubt the most popular dinosaur ever. Therefore to make a replica that really stands out turns out to be quite a challenge. Battat achieved that and more. The Battat Rex is yellow and green, the mouth is purple, just like that of the Acrocanthosaurus.
