Review: Talon (Primal Rage by Playmates)

3.3 (51 votes)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

Ever since I first saw preview pictures of the stop motion figures used to animate the dinosaurs in the 1994 Atari fighting game Primal Rage in a Nintendo magazine, I thought, “Wow, they would have made great toys.” Fast forward to a few years ago where I learned such toys were actually produced by Playmates of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame, and I got a few of them used.

Review and photos by Prehistory Resurrection, edited by Suspsy

Mattel has made more ”Blue” toys (as well as other Velociraptors) than you can shake a stick at. Today, we will be taking a look at one of several incarnations of the beloved raptor: their Jurassic World Dominion Ferocious Pack version.

Review: Ceratosaurus (2021)(Schleich)

3.5 (37 votes)

Review and photos by Prehistory Resurrection, edited by Suspsy

Back in 1994, Schleich released its now-discontinued Replica-Saurus line of dinosaur figures, which included perhaps the goofiest, ugliest, and most hideous dinosaur figure ever manufactured, their first Ceratosaurus sculpt, in a quadrupedal stance. It was finally retired in 2005.

4.9 (9 votes)

Review and images by bmathison1972; edited by Suspsy

Signatustudio is a line of animal replicas made by artist J. Miguel Aparicio out of Spain. Most of his models are in the 1:20 scale and represent the fauna of Eurasia, including the Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean, Tibetan Plateau, and Euro-Siberian regions.

Review: Gwangi (X-Plus/Star Ace)

4.6 (13 votes)

Review and images by GiganotosaurusFan, edited by Suspsy

The year was 1969 and everyone was talking about the new show-stopping dinosaur movie made by Ray Harryhausen. It was The Valley of Gwangi, an epic tale of how the last living Allosaurus was found, captured, and eventually met a grandiose, spectacular, and tragic end after a cathedral crashed down on top of it with a bang. Naturally, the film was a success, and that iconic, menacing Allosaurus would remain in many people’s hearts for years to come.

Review: Triceratops (1:18 Scale)(Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

4.8 (69 votes)

Review and images by Pliosaurking, edited by Suspsy

Hello everyone! Welcome to my first DTB review in which I’ll be covering the Beasts of the Mesozoic adult Triceratops horridus by Creative Beast Studio! Triceratops is one of the most iconic and recognizable dinosaurs of all time, and also one of a small number of dinosaurs that the general public can name off the top of their heads.

Review: Opabinia regalis (Scientific Models by Trilobiti Design)

5 (10 votes)

Review and images by bmathison1972, edited by Suspsy

Opabinia regalis is an enigmatic arthropod (or arthropod-like animal) from the Middle Cambrian Burgess Shale Lagerstätte of present-day British Columbia. It was a benthic predator, scouring the bottom of the Cambrian Seas for soft-bodied prey nearly 505 million years ago.

Review: Rugops (Jurassic World: Ferocious Pack by Mattel)

Review and photos by PrimevalRaptor, edited by Suspsy

Since obtaining the Jurassic World license, Mattel has been pumping out a lot of figures in their toyline for the series, bringing a fresh wind into the dinosaur toy market especially over here in Germany where shelves usually are dominated by Schleich models.

Review: Allosaurus (PNSO)

4.2 (46 votes)

Review and photos by Zim, edited by Suspsy

Allosaurus (meaning “different lizard”) is probably the most well known large predator of the Late Jurassic period some 155-145 million years ago, similar to how Tyrannosaurus was in the Late Cretaceous period. It reaches sizes of 8 to 9.6 metres long, but could possibly reach up to 13 metres (more on that later).

Review: Giganotosaurus (W-Dragon)

3.5 (17 votes)

Review and photos by GiganotosaurusFan, edited by Suspsy

At one point a long time ago back in the year 2000, in a video game called Dino Crisis 2, a T. rex would stomp out to attack the main character, Regina. But then this massive beast, 21 meters long, would come smashing through a wall and this daikaiju, this beast, this gargantuan thing, would eat the rex.

Review: Isla Nublar Decisive Battle Set (ANIA by Takara Tomy)

4.4 (19 votes)

Review and photos by Zim, edited by Suspsy

June 12, 2015 was the day the Jurassic Park series was revived with a new film called Jurassic World. It features a revamped park along with many new species, including Dimorphodon, Mosasaurus, and a new hybrid, along with old favourites like Tyrannosaurus.

Review: Velociraptor (Feathered Version by Recur)

3.9 (29 votes)

Review and photos by Charles Peckham, edited by Suspsy

I’m really happy that Recur exists and is making toy dinosaurs. I’m a big fan of CollectA and Safari Ltd., but I realize that they are cost prohibitive to a lot of collectors, and while I enjoy cheap knockoff toys (I don’t care for the term “Chinasaur”), part of me always hesitates to give them to kids, knowing that the original toy they got the design from is probably 70 years old, and was scientifically inaccurate then.

Review: Tyrannocon Rex (Transformers: Collaborative by Hasbro)

4.2 (35 votes)

Review by GiganotosaurusFan, edited by Suspsy

We take a different path today, not down a path of dinosaurs, but a dinosaur/robot. On September 17, 1984, lightning struck as one of the most popular children’s cartoon shows of all time debuted: The Transformers. 12 years later, a different path was taken with Beast Wars, where the Autobots became Maximals, and the Decepticons became Predacons.

Review: Triceratops (2021)(PNSO)

4.3 (32 votes)

Review and photos by Loon, edited by Suspsy

There are a lot of Triceratops figures. A lot. So when I saw that PNSO was planning to release yet another one, and at an incredibly high price, I was pretty sure I’d pass. The early photos weren’t much help either, as they made me wary of the articulated jaw (more on that later).
