Review: Mononykus (Jurassic World: Dino Rivals Attack Pack By Mattel)

3.3 (12 votes)

If there’s one group of dinosaurs that have never before graced a child’s toy box then it would almost certainly be the alvarezsaurids. Alvarezsaurids are small, maniraptoran dinosaurs whose fossils were found in North and South America, as well as Asia. These dinosaurs had long legs and necks, and were probably feathered, but the main characteristic that sets most of these particular dinosaurs apart, is their insanely tiny arms, which end in a single clawed digit.

Review: Qianzhousaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

3.7 (15 votes)

PNSO is a company that I never thought that I’d collect. When they first came onto the scene in 2016 I was not too interested in their selection of products, and before I finally decided to give them a shot, they went into some legal issues and the company remained dormant for a while.

Review: Concavenator (Jurassic World Dino Rivals, Dual Attack, by Mattel)

Well, a full year has gone by, and it’s safe to say that the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom toy line has been a success. So much so that some of the toys have won the Toy Associations best Action Figures award for 2018, which is a lot more than Hasbro’s lazy attempts from back in 2015.

Review: Giganotosaurus (2019 repaint by Schleich)

Roaring into today’s review is a figure that I never thought I would own. The Giganotosaurus you see in the photos is not a new sculpt by Schleich, but a repaint of their now retired World of History version from 2015.

Review: Proceratosaurus (Jurassic World Attack Pack, by Mattel)

2.5 (16 votes)

Edited by Dinotoyblog.

With an awful lot of Jurassic World toys being released from Mattel for 2019, I thought it would be wise to cover one of the 2018 toys that have been neglected from review so far. The subject of today’s review is this cartoonish little theropod that Mattel has dubbed a Proceratosaurus.

The National Geographic Society  is a nonprofit organization that promotes environmental and historical conservation, as well as the study of world culture and history. The society has many outlets to its name, including a magazine, and a cable network on television, so it is highly regarded among  the general public.

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

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.

Review: Amargasaurus (Papo)

2.9 (16 votes)
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 dinosaur toy collecting community.

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

3.6 (13 votes)
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.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Red Hunting Version)(Mojo Fun)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
With all the Jurassic World toys being released this year, it was very easy for me to forget about the other brands of dinosaur toys that I do not normally collect. One of these brands is Mojo Fun, and the reason I did not collect their models is simply because they don’t have a great selection of species, and most were pretty old school in posture.

Review: Monolophosaurus (Battle Damage)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Another day, another Jurassic World review. This time it’s the Walmart exclusive Battle Damage Monolophosaurus that comes with the T. rex I reviewed not too long ago. For those who are new to the community and not up to speed on your dinosaurs, Monolophosaurus was a species of theropod dinosaur that is named after a large crest on its head.

Review: Velociraptor “Blue” (Attack Pack)(Jurassic World by Mattel)

With the Jurassic World license now in the hands of people who actually care about the toys they make, we now have a large selection of toys that (so far) have proven to be a massive improvement over the poorly designed dreck that Hasbro has created for the last film in the series.

So, the time has come to review my first Jurassic World toy from Mattel. I have chosen the Battle Damage Tyrannosaurus rex that comes with a Monolophosaurus, which is exclusive to Walmart in North America.
