Ankylosaurus (Larami)

Most of the dinosaurs Larami released in the 1990s were more or less decent copies of Invicta originals, made of vinyl. Three animals did not base on Invicta originals: A Styracosaurus, a Parasaurolophus and the reviewed Ankylosaurus. I probably don´t promise too much when I say this is one of the ugliest animals that have …

Ankylosaurus (Marx)

No collection of toy dinosaurs would be complete without the “great fused lizard”, Ankylosaurus magniventris, and it has been that way since 1955 with the release of the first dinosaur toys ever mass produced, by Marx. The Marx Ankylosaurus was included in Marx’s second wave of dinosaur toys, known as Medium Mold Group, PL-750. It …

Ankylosaurus (Mini)(Chap Mei)

The various Ankylosaurus toys that have been reviewed here on the DTB over the years range from the truly superb to the decidedly subpar. But the one I’ve got to review today may well be the most hideous of them all. This here is the Mini Ankylosaurus from Chap Mei. It measures about 10.5 cm …

Ankylosaurus (Natural History Museum by Toyway)

Photographs and review by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy Ankylosaurus seems to capture the imagination of children and adults alike, mainly due to its morphology. Often described as a walking tank, its osteoderms provided a most impressive defence, not to mention the power behind its solid bone club, which could instantly smash the bones of even …

Ankylosaurus (Papo)

First things first – this is yet another “Ankylosaurus” model that is nothing of the sort, instead rather obviously being based on Euoplocephalus (would giving these figures the correct name really harm their commercial prospects that much?). It’s also Papo’s very latest dinosaur, released a few months ago and well overdue the Dinosaur Toy Blog …

Ankylosaurus (Playskool Heroes Jurassic World, by Hasbro)

When you think of the toys made for Jurassic World by Hasbro, there are  probably a lot of colorful adjectives that pop into your head .  I warn you not utter them out loud as there are preschool toys present.  One word I did not hear many people say about the toy line was “fun”.  Well today I am …

Ankylosaurus (Roarivores)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy   In 2001, “cinematic genius” Joe Johnston introduced Ankylosaurus to the Jurassic Park film franchise in one of the worst scene transitions in the series (remember, this is the same franchise that thought going from a screaming mother to a yawning Jeff Goldblum was a good idea). Thus …

Ankylosaurus (Sede) (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

The Chinese company PNSO only came onto the scene about three years ago but in that short amount of time, and despite a brief hiatus, they’ve delivered a vast array of jaw dropping collectables like nothing we’ve seen before. By and large the models produced thus far have fit into a few different size and …

Ankylosaurus (Soft model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

This Ankylosaurus from Favorite is one of the best plastic ankylosaurs out there. It’s just not Ankylosaurus… A little background: in 2004, a paper by Ken Carpenter was published that redescribed Ankylosaurus and finally gave it a definitive modern ‘look’. Before that, restorations of the animal’s armour tended to be based either on the original …

Ankylosaurus (Soft Model Series 2 by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

Review and photographs by Mikko aka Dinomike, edited Plesiosauria. This magnificent version of Ankylosaurus magniventris has been very difficult to obtain in Europe since the import prices from Japan are quite steep. However, I managed to obtain this Late Cretaceous creature when a shop in Britain finally took Favorite’s Soft Model series in their selection. …

Ankylosaurus (Tyco)

Time now to jump into the WABAC Machine and take a trip to 1988. It was a good time to be a kid or a collector. GI Joe and Transformers were still going strong, Barbie and Lego were around as always, and TMNT was taking its first steps towards iconic status. And then you had …

Ankylosaurus (UKRD)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy UKRD released a series of dinosaur toys in the early 1990s’, and I remember my kindergarten class had dozens of them. They came in at least three size classes, with the medium ones being most prevalent. Many of them seem to have been modelled after John Sibbick’s …

Ankylosaurus (Walking with Dinosaurs by Toyway)

ankylosaurus walking with dinosaurs toyway

The Walking with Dinosaurs collection by Toyway includes some of the most detailed and scientifically accurate dinosaur figures out there. The figures tie directly into the TV series ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ and represent some of the major dinosaurs seen in the show. They are therefore identical to the on screen portrayals. They were packaged in …

Ankylosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

With the 2017 Tyrannosaurus and 2018 Triceratops, Safari Ltd has made a good start on reconstructing a 1:35 version of the Hell Creek formation of the Maastrichtian (latest Cretaceous) of Laramidia. To help round out the Hell Creek fauna, they’ve just released a new, updated Ankylosaurus, another giant contemporary of Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops. Let’s take …

Review and photos by Emperor Dinobot, edited by Suspsy Hello everyone! Welcome to yet another EmperorDinobot(TM) dinosaur review! Today we are going to give a look at these quirky bendable dinosaurs from Dorda! Made in 1987 (I think I would have to lift up their skirts to make sure it was ’87 or ’88), these …
