Upcoming releases from CollectA (New for 2015)

I usually post about CollectA’s new figures towards the end of the year preceding release, so better late than never! However, in this case, the delay has been rewarded, because since revealing most of their upcoming 2015 releases at the end of 2014, CollectA squeezed a few more figures into their lineup in January 2015. …

Upcoming releases from CollectA (New for 2017)

CollectA’s exciting line up for 2017 includes one ‘supreme’ model, four ‘deluxe’ models, and five standard models, so their relentless trend of releasing bucket-loads of new dinosaur toys each year continues! CollectA’s categories refer to their scale: ‘deluxe’ models are larger and more detailed than standard models, and the ‘supreme’ models are larger still. On …

Upcoming releases from CollectA (New for 2023)

CollectA continues to impress with the reveal of ten new prehistoric products for 2023, several of which have never appeared in figure form before! Of particular note is Koolasuchus, as it is not only the first prehistoric amphibian from CollectA, but the first prehistoric amphibian from any company in years! Anomalocaris Brighstoneus Ceratosuchops fishing Hadrosaurus …

Upcoming releases from Mojo Fun (New for 2023)

For the third year in a row, Mojo Fun is releasing a Cenozoic mammal as their sole prehistoric figure. This time, it’s Coelodonta, the woolly rhinoceros, which should go well with the 2022 woolly mammoth.

Upcoming releases from Papo (New for 2012)

Up until about a week or so ago I was intending to lump the modest parade of new 2012 figures by Safari Ltd, Papo, and other non-CollectA companies, into a single post. That was before the slow trickle of anticipated 2012 releases from these companies swelled to a veritable torrent , almost, but not quite, …

Upcoming releases from Papo (New for 2014)

This is little more than a formality at this stage as most readers will already be aware of Papo’s new dinosaurian additions for 2014. However, it doesn’t hurt to quickly recap what we have in store this year. Papo will produce three new standard figures for 2014 as well as a set of six miniature …

Upcoming releases from Papo (New for 2023)

Papo’s 2023 prehistoric assortment includes a pair of new dinosaurs. Also slated for release are these two impressive-looking sea reptiles, which were originally supposed to come out this year. These previously retired figures will be re-released. 

Upcoming releases from Playmobil (New for 2023)

Images of Playmobil’s 2023 Dino Rise line have appeared online, but disappointingly, all the prehistoric animals are repaints of previously released moulds, most of which have been in production since 2007. They still look like they’ll be fun to play with, however! Tyrannosaurus rex. Spinosaurus. Triceratops. Deinonychus. Dimorphodon and Velociraptor. Baby Spinosaurus. Baby Tyrannosaurus rex.

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2012)

We’re joining this particular party late as the following Safari Ltd photos have been circulating the interwebs for months now, so it’s about time we posted them here to complete (more-or-less) our round up of new dinosaur figures for 2012. So, here’s a preview of Safari Ltd’s offerings for this year. Five new figures will …

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2013)

Although it’s only September, Safari Ltd have already provided information on the new figures they plan to release in 2013. The line up of prehistoric animals includes one new addition to the Carnegie Collection, several new critters in the Wild Safari line, and a new ‘toob’. Presumably information about the new releases from CollectA, Papo, …

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2014)

It has become an annual dinotoyblog tradition, around this time of year, to post an overview of each toy company’s upcoming dinosaur figures. So, here we go again, starting with Safari Ltd. There’s just a single new addition to the Carnegie Collection in 2014, a brand new version of the ever-popular T. rex. This model …

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2015)

This news comes a little earlier in the year than usual, but maybe that’s because these figures will all be released late in 2014, just in time for Christmas. These early images come from a PDF version of a “2015 New Product Guide” by Safari Ltd, which was posted as low resolution images on Facebook …

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2016)

  Despite the sad retirement of their long-respected and trend-setting Carnegie Collection this year, Safari Ltd have shown no signs of slowing down with their other major prehistoric animal line – Wild Safari. The company has five brand new for 2016 prehistoric animal sculpts in the pipeline: four dinosaurs and one marine reptile. Although slated …

Upcoming releases from Safari Ltd (New for 2017)

This month Safari Ltd excited us all by announcing a bumper lineup of 13 new prehistoric creatures scheduled for release over the coming months. Feathers play a key part of the story with five of the new dinosaurs sporting up-to-date plumage, including some very familiar species. Close observers have also pointed out a notable overlap …

Upcoming releases from Schleich (New for 2014)

When it comes to dinosaur lines, Schleich have been a bit of a let down in recent years. Not only have they retired a large proportion of their prehistoric animal figures, their most recent sculpts have been ugly and anatomically incorrect. The sort of toys that wouldn’t seem out of place in a bargain bin …
