Allosaurus (2000)(Bullyland)

This ‘Walking With Dinosaurs’-inspired model was one of the better Allosaur toys of its time, and is an arguably good model even today.

Ammonit (Bullyland)

As promised, here’s the follow up to the recent Bullyland “Belemnit” review, another take of German company Bullyland to prehistoric molluscs. Another, you’d ask? Yes, while most toy companies do not bother with prehistoric molluscs at all or just did so very recently (as Safari, Schleich or CollectA), Bullyland dashed out this, said “Belemnit” and …

Ammonite (Bullyland)

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy Ammonites are one of the most iconic of all fossil groups. Once thought to be snakes turned to stone in medieval times, these ancient cephalopods are known throughout the world, and are important fossils for many purposes, especially in dating as they are exceptional index fossils. Despite …

Anchitherium (Bullyland)

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy Horses have played a great roll in the history of mankind since the end of the ice ages. One of the last few large mammals alive from that time, they are found all across the world in various forms. It is unsurprising then that there has been …

Andrewsarchus (Bullyland)

Edited by Dinotoyblog Andrewsarchus is interesting in terms of its discovery, its size, its habits and its look. It is a large basal mesonychid from the Eocene Epoch that is rarely depicted by toy lines. Safari and Bullyland are the only companies that released it as a commonly available toy figure. Kaiyodo also made a …

Apatosaurus (Bullyland Micro Tiere)

By now most of you should know my preference for sometimes strange dinosaur models, alleged outsiders, often being sadly overlooked. I would like to introduce to you the Bullyland “Micro Tiere” Apatosaurus. I don´t exactly know about the release date, even Randy Knoll´s site doesn´t give any information. But it must have been somewhere in …

Apatosaurus (Bullyland)(Museum Line)

Rounding out Bullyland’s Museum-Line of prehistoric figures is the longtime favorite Apatosaurus, one of the largest figures in their entire line. Many manufacturers have – either to cut costs or respect traditions – opted for a generally plain paint scheme for large sauropods. Prior to the Carnegie Diplodocus of 2008, it seems most sauropod figures …

Archaeopteryx (2017)(Bullyland)

Photographs and review by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs,’ edited by Suspsy Back in my review of the Bullyland Smilodon, I had mentioned that Bullyland had released nothing special or new for 2017, just resculpts of their past Triceratops and Archaeopteryx models. And for 2018, unless I am mistaken, Bullyland has released nothing, which is disappointing. …

Archaeopteryx (version 1 by Bullyland)

Archaeopteryx Bullyland toy (version 1)

Our recent review of the 2017 Bullyland Archaeopteryx prompted me to search through the Dinotoyblog archives to compare the new version with the old…only to discover that we’ve never reviewed the original Bullyland Archaeopteryx. That immediately helped me settle on which figure to review next. The original ‘version 1’ Archaeopteryx was released in two iterations. …

Arizonasaurus (The World of Dinosaurs by Bullyland)

Arizonasaurus was a 12 foot long, predatory, long legged Rauisuchian related to modern crocodilians, and it was a top predator in the lower Triassic ecosystem of yep, you guessed it, Arizona roughly 240 million years ago. The name translates simply to “Arizona reptile”. Although to a layperson Arizonsaurus and other Rauisuchians may resemble dinosaurs, they …

Batrachotomus (The World of Dinosaurs by Bullyland)

Batrachotomus was a primitive basal rauisuchian, which were a group of crocodile-like archosaurs adapted to a strictly terrestrial lifestyle, and were the dominant predators of the Triassic. Batrachotomus existed around 235 million years ago during the Ladinian Age of the Middle Triassic, and is considered by many paleontologists to be an early form of the …

Belemnit (Bullyland)

Roughly 300 million years a successful group of invertebrate animals roamed Earth’s seas in such numbers, that their fossil remains are used by geologists as index fossils, yet, the world of toy figures is lacking this group of animals almost completely. Several years ago the German company Bullyland remedied this lack and “released the kraken”,… …

Brachiosaurus (Museum Line by Bullyland)

More Bullyland – and this time it’s their 2005 resculpt of the giant African brachiosaur Giraffatitan (still known at the time as “Brachiosaurus” brancai. And yes, I am going to refer to it as Giraffatitan throughout the review, to annoy you all and because it’s only correct, so there). All told it’s not too shabby. …

Chalicotherium (Bullyland)

To celebrate Bullyland’s highly anticipated re-release of their prehistoric mammal collection I felt it was a good time to review the only Bullyland mammal figure I actually own, the Chalicotherium. For those of you out of the loop on this a brief overview is in order. Bullyland is a German toy company notable for producing …

Deinonychus (Bullyland)

Photographs by Lanthanotus, edited by Dinotoyblog Reading Horridus´ great review of the vintage Carnegie Deinonychus trio, another Deinonychus figure came into my mind. A base? Non–feathered? Dynamic, Bakker-inspired pose? Wait, yes – it’s the Bullyland Deinonychus! It is tiger–coloured and striped, 14.5 cm long and 8 cm tall, with the typical Bullyland approach that can …
