Smilodon (Bullyland)

Photographs and review by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs,’ edited by Suspsy Bullyland is well known for its range of prehistoric animal models for an old museum line, which is now sadly discontinued. One week ago, I saw many Bullyland figures put on sale at my local toy shop; there were modern animal figures and some …

Spinophorosaurus by Bullyland (exclusively for the Staatliches Naturhistorisches Museum, Braunschweig)

Species Spinophorosaurus nigerensis was a midsize sauropod that lived in what is now Nigeria in the middle Jurassic, about 170 million years ago. It resembled a small Brachiosaurid and belonged to a sister taxon of the Eusauropoda. It was 13 metres long. Its most famous attributes are the spines at the end of the tail. …

Spinosaurus (2012)(Bullyland)

Review and photos by ‘Prehistory Resurrection,’ edited by Suspsy Spinosaurus was one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs, probably exceeding Tyrannosaurus rex and Giganotosaurus in length, but not mass. Other factors which have contributed to Spinosaurus‘ fame apart from its huge size are its signature dorsal sail, its well-known (but inaccurate) appearance in the movie Jurassic Park …

Stegosaurus (2007)(Museum Line by Bullyland)

History: As you know, the Stegosaurus is one of the staples in the four food groups of the dinosaur world that the lay person and connoisseurs know. Besides the spikes, plates, ‘tiny’ brain, and being the size of a bus, what else can I say about Stegosaurus? It was an herbivore that had a small …

Therizinosaurus (Bullyland)

Therizinosaurs were among the strangest dinosaurs ever, and I really like them very much. They were late Cretaceous theropods, yet herbovires, and their overall appearance is so strange and deviates from standard dinosaur scheme pretty much. Huge bellies, a beak and feathers make Therizinosaurs look like gigantic turkeys. Their lifestyle, however, probably resembled that of …

Triceratops (2017)(Bullyland)

Review and photos by Prehistory Resurrection, edited by Suspsy The most recent news that we have of Bullyland is that the company entered bankruptcy in 2019. They were thought to be definitely out of business, but in January 2020, the company reemerged with a repaint and seven mini figures. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, distribution …

Trilobite (Bullyland)

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy Trilobites. Next to ammonites, they are one of the most well-known fossil groups. Known throughout the world from thousands of species, from the tiny to the giant and from spiny to burrowing, no one can deny their fame. From the Cambrian to the Permian, trilobites radiated across …

Tyrannosaurus rex (2016)(Museum Line by Bullyland)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy This Tyrannosaurus rex is one of two medium-sized models released in 2016 for Bullyland’s Museum Line, and this year they will be joined by a Triceratops and an Archaeopteryx. One thing I have noticed people complaining about is that it seems like Bullyland is regressing when it …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Museum Line by Bullyland)

Review and photos by Lanthanotus, edited by Suspsy According to the dinosaur books I read when I was a child, Tyrannosaurus rex was the ultimate bane of the Cretaceous. Every other dinosaur had best fled to save its poor hide once the king of tyrants strolled by. Everybody’s most beloved theropod is an obligate candidate …

Upcoming releases from Bullyland (New for 2012)

We’ve already previewed the upcoming offerings from CollectA (New CollectAs for 2012) and Papo (New Papos for 2012), so now we’ll have a peek at what Bullyland have in the pipeline. They have two new figures for our perusal, a somewhat googly-eyed Spinosaurus, and a feathered Therizinosaurus. The Spinosaurus: The Therizinosaurus: Bullyland are continuing their …

Upcoming releases from Bullyland (New for 2023)

Bullyland’s 2023 catalogue has revealed a new prehistoric release: Tyrannosaurus rex. While clearly not in the same league as other recent renditions of the tyrant lizard, it will undoubtedly be fun for younger dinosaur enthusiasts to play with.

Velociraptor (Museum Line by Bullyland)

Given the preponderance of bald dromaeosaurs that still stink up dinosaur toy stores, it was nice to see Bullyland step in two years ago with a Luis Rey-inspired feathered version of that perennial favourite, Velociraptor. Unfortunately the results are a little mixed – a figure with great potential let down in a few key areas. …

Woolly Mammoth (Museum Line by Bullyland)

Review and photos by Resurrection of the dinosaurs, edited by Suspsy As 2018 has ended now, I decided to review a figure from a prehistoric line that seems to have ended too: Bullyland. Let me know in the comments section if I am wrong. Although the line has stopped releasing new figures, it is still continuing to …

Woolly rhinoceros (Prehistoric World, by Bullyland)

It has been a unusually warm winter, but finally this week, winter has assuredly come to my neck of the woods in North America.  I know this because the snow is finally falling, the temperature is freezing, the super bowl is done, and the Toronto Maple leafs are making trades to figure out how to …
