Mastodonsaurus (Bullyland)

Mastodonsaurus (“breast tooth lizard”) was a Russian and European temnospondyl that belonged to a group of advanced, mostly Triassic amphibians called capitosaurids. It lived in swampy pools and fed mainly on fish, but probably did not avoid land living animals such as small early archosaurids. The giant head was a powerful tool for those feeding …

Medusa (Bullyland)

Summer melts us here since weeks, so time for another wet review…. Today I want you to introduce you to one of those creatures everybody knows, but knows almost nothing about, a jellyfish. Jellyfish are a very very old group of animals, they date back to the famous Ediacarian, more than 600 mya. Fossils are …

Megaloceros giganteus (Irish elk) (Prehistoric Times by Bullyland)

I am sure most collectors are aware that Bullyland has produced an interesting collection of prehistoric mega fauna, mammals, and terror birds. One overlooked mammal by most toy lines has been the Irish elk. It was nice to see a company take a chance on an animal that rarely sees any toy love. History: The …

Megatherium (Bullyland)

With all that new JP, sorry, JW stuff around, let’s not forget that there’s plenty of retired figures not being reviewed yet. One of these is Bullyland’s Megatherium, released in 1998 and discontinued some years back. Despite representing a quite rare animal in the toy world, it probably wasn’t sold in big numbers, at least …

Micro Tiere Collection (Bullyland)

Back in 2010 our own Libraraptor reviewed a little Apatosaurus, part of Bullyland’s Micro Tiere Collection released in 2005. Having found the same little figure in an eBay lot I was very curious about this small but seemly high quality figure. A search yielded his review but further research yielded the rest of the collection …

Pachycephalosaurus (Bullyland)

During this seasonal, festive, frenzy of reviews, lets take a small time warp back in time and bring forth a toy that has been left behind by the relentless march of time. In 2009, Bullyland,  the purveyor of  goofy eyed yet expressive figures, released a interesting looking Pachycephalosaurus. It wasn’t a perfect figure in the time it was made, …

Parasaurolophus (2007)(Bullyland)

Images and review by PhilSauria, edited by Suspsy. Parasaurolophus is a pretty distinctive animal and just about all of the manufacturers of dinosaur figures that have been around for a while now have their brand on the underside of a plastic version of one. I have 13 examples in my collection and there are more …

Paratypothorax (The World of Dinosaurs by Bullyland)

The hognosed Paratypothorax was, at up to 3 meters in length, one of the largest of the aetosaurs. Aetosaurs were a clade of quadrupedal armored archosaurs (“ruling reptiles”) which existed during the Late Triassic. Paratypothorax lived some 210 million years ago in Europe. The name translates to “near pitted armor”. Although its bony armor causes …

Plateosaurus (Bullyland mini)

Edited by Dinotoyblog A short review of a small dinosaur toy figure (this one is only 9 cm long and 3.5 cm tall). I really love dinosaur toys when they are of monochrome plainness. I also love small and detailed dinosaur toys. So, of course I love this little yellow fellow. The German prosauropod Plateosaurus …

Plateosaurus (Bullyland Museum Line)

EU government could still not agree on aborting the change to summer time, so this very day is an hour longer and so gives me some time to wirte another review after quite a long break….. Today we gonna take a look on a probably not very popular figure, though the species is known by …

Plesiosaurus (Bullyland)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy To the general population, plesiosaurs are mainly known as “that prehistoric animal which the Loch Ness Monster might be,” though they were, of course, a very distinct group of reptiles with a long and important role in the history of palaeontology. Plesiosaurus itself was the first named …

Procynosuchus (Bullyland)

Today I want to introduce to you an extraordinary Bullyland figure that is not available that easily: The Procynosuchus from the “Korbacher Spalte” in Germany (“cleft of Korbach”). Also called the “Korbach dachshund”, this ‘mammal-like reptile’ has been found in a cleft where Permian layers outcrop, about 256 million years old. The cleft is now canopied, …

Protochirotherium (Bullyland, exclusively for the Regionalmuseum Wolfhagen, Germany)

Just recently I came across one of these figures which make a collector´s life so interesting. I was visiting the museum in Korbach with its great Procynosuchus exhibition when I saw this Bullyland Protochirotherium for sale in a cabinet among many other more common Bullyland figures such as their Apatosaurus or Tyrannosaurus. Besides the 2014 …

Pteranodon longiceps (Bullyland)

One of several Pteranodon figures from Bullyland. This figure appears to represent P. longiceps and contrasts with Bully’s smaller P. sternbergi figures (one reviewed previously: here) Notice the metal ring attached to the back so you can hang this figure for display. A full review of this figure will be added at a later date. Feel free …

Pteranodon sternbergi (Bullyland)

Pterosaurs are delicate gangly creatures, so it is unsurprising that, for the most part, toy companies have tended to create simple ‘in flight’ postures for their pterosaur figures. Pterosaurs with the wings outstretched are easier to make. Bullyland broke the mold when they produced a pair of pterosaurs, a typical flying version (I will call …
