Acrocanthosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Plesiosauria A lot of new figures have come out in 2017 [vote for your favourites here – Ed], but perhaps none have become more controversial than the Acrocanthosaurus that Schleich have created for their ‘Conquering the Earth’ dinosaurs collection. Sure, other Schleich models made for this year (like …

Albertosaurus (Jurassic Hunters by Geoworld)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Plesiosauria. Here’s another Geoworld figure up for review. Albertosaurus is a tyrannosaurid found in Alberta, Canada, which has been the subject of many toys over the past ten years. In 2013, Geoworld released their own version of Albertosaurus as part of the Jurassic Hunters line of collectible dinosaur …

Allosaurus (CollectA)

Review and Photos by Takama, edited by Plesiosauria. We’re all aware how CollectA have evolved, in their mere eight years of existence, from the makers of childish garbage to the makers of some amazing figures. The subject of today’s review falls clearly into the former category. It was released in CollectA’s second year and is …

Allosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Back when I reviewed the 2015 Schleich Spinosaurus, I openly stated how annoyed I was over the fact that the company keeps repeating the same species instead of releasing brand new ones. But when the 2017 models came along, I was sort of relieved, as the models …

Allosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Ah, Allosaurus! What dinosaur line is complete without the “Lion of the Jurassic”? The reason it appears in many toy lines is because Allosaurus is a well known dinosaur that has appeared in many dinosaur books and movies. In 2012, Schleich released …

Amargasaurus (Papo)

Edited by Dinotoyblog Over the years, Papo’s prehistoric creatures have become one of the most popular on the market, mainly due to their immense detailing and outstanding paint applications. However, while Papo boasts excellently crafted figures like the Acrocanthosaurus and Spinosaurus, there are also some figure that are considered ‘stinkers’ in the eyes of the …

Anhanguera (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan `Takama`Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Anhanguera was a pterosaur that hails from the Santana Formation in Brazil. It is recognized by two crests that were found on its beak (one on the top, one on the bottom). The overall look of this pterosaur resembles that of its cousin …

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Mini Action Dinos By Mattel)

Those who are avid readers of this forum may remember the Jurassic World Mini Dinosaurs from Hasbro that I reviewed back in June of 2015. At the time, I was able to buy all of the little dinosaurs because most of them were available in three packs, with the exception of three. Mattel has now …

Apatosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy. Brontosaurus is back, and as far as anyone can tell it’s here to stay. What does this mean for all of the Apatosaurus toys that have been released over the years? Like Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan, many of them will end up being …

Baryonyx (Jurassic Hunters by Geoworld)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy If you are deeply into dinosaurs, then you should already know what Baryonyx is. For those who happen to be average lay people or new to the hobby, Baryonyx was a large fish-eating theropod that lived during the Early Cretaceous in what is now England. It coexisted …

Baryonyx (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Mini Action Dinos, by Mattel)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Dinotoyblog With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom now available on home media, I decided to review another mini dinosaur from the film’s toy line. This time it’s Baryonyx, a dinosaur I grew to like thanks to its big screen debut in the movie. The Baryonyx in the film was not …

Baryonyx (Mojo Fun)

Baryonyx walkeri is a well known dinosaur in this community so I don’t think it needs an introduction. When it comes to replicas there are more than enough to choose from. However, all of these toys differ in quality, with the best ones either being hard to obtain, or simply out of date. The Mojo …

Brachiosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

​Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy With Schleich’s 2017 crop of models consisting of animals that hail from the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous, it is understandable that at least one Jurassic sauropod would be released. Although to be honest, I was hoping we would get a new Apatosaurus, or even Brontosaurus. …

Brachiosaurus (Jurassic Hunters by Geoworld)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy By now, I’m sure we all know of the fact that some companies just love to rip off other people’s work without so much as a credit to those who came up with the ideas in the first place. So when it comes to Geoworld, you know …

Brachiosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Well everyone, it’s time for another Schleich World of History review. This  one will cover the 2012 Brachiosaurus. If you have been following my other WoH reviews, you  know that 2012 was the year Schleich revamped and renamed their dinosaur line, making smaller …
