Dunkleosteus (Chap Mei)

3.3 (7 votes)

In the past few years we’ve seen an explosion of Dunkleosteus figures from all kinds of companies, from masterpieces like Favorite Co’s rendition to worthy-but-flawed efforts like CollectA’s to fairly bad ones like the subject of today’s review. It’s the most popular prehistoric fish in plastic, eclipsing the huge but otherwise utterly boring C.

Elasmosaurus (Chap Mei)

2.3 (8 votes)

The Chap Mei Elasmosaurus no doubt has to be the antithesis of what the real Elasmosaurus looked like. While the actual animal would have no doubt been smooth and elegant the action figure we’re reviewing today is none of those things. With its ragged teeth, twisted and misshapen head, and body covered in wrinkles and bumps this toy is an Elasmosaurus in name only.

Kentrosaurus (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

2.4 (11 votes)
As Styracosaurus is to Triceratops, Kentrosaurus is to Stegosaurus. This thorny little thyreophoran would have been a risky meal for any Jurassic predator.

Chap Mei’s electronic Kentrosaurus figure measures just under 28 cm long and stands 15.5 cm at the tip of its back plates. Very light grey is the main colour with medium and dark blue running down the back, black markings on the sides, green eyes, a magenta tongue, beige spikes, and translucent red plates with black tips.

Liopleurodon (DinoValley Series 2 by Chap Mei)

2.7 (14 votes)
As recently featured on the Plesiosaur Directory toys page, there is a new Liopleurodon toy on the scene. Considering the rarity of Liopleurodon toys, coupled with the huge popularity of this pliosaur, this Liopleurodon figure is sure to be a collector’s item. It’s part of the second series of Dinovalley, produced by Chap Mei.

Ornitholestes (Mini)(Chap Mei)

2.4 (14 votes)
North America during the Late Jurassic was terrorized by a number of large and lethal theropods such as Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and Torvosaurus. But there were also much some smaller meat eaters roaming around such as Ornitholestes. A mainstay of many of the dinosaur books I read as a child during the 1980s’, it was usually depicted preying on Archaeopteryx—despite the fact that the latter was from Europe.

Pachycephalosaurus (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

2.2 (13 votes)
Rounding out my electronic Chap Mei toys is that scrappy (and in this case, rather scary) thick-headed lizard, Pachycephalosaurus!

This rather dubious-looking dinosaur measures 25 cm long and stands 17 cm tall when hunched over. The main colours are light brown and dark brown with beige accents, electric blue stripes, white teeth, and translucent orange for the eyes and the cranium.

Parasaurolophus (Chap Mei)

3.1 (10 votes)
Ah, Parasaurolophus. By virtue of its distinctive tube-shaped crest, it has become the “default” hadrosaur, the one most frequently depicted in films, television, and toys. This particular piece of plastic we’ll be looking at comes courtesy of Chap Mei.

From the tip of its bill to the curve in its tail, this dinosaur measures 21.5 cm long.

Parasaurolophus (Mini)(Chap Mei)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

While many companies that produce dinosaur toys strive to make their figures scientifically accurate (though often failing), some completely disregard science, preferring instead to use dinosaurs as simple pop culture monsters. This is true for Chap Mei, whose Dino Valley line toys are often imitations of dinosaurs appearing in pop culture rather than what is actually known about them.

Pentaceratops (Chap Mei)

1.9 (14 votes)
Pentaceratops was a very large chasmosaurine ceratopsian that ranged from Canada to the southern United States during the Late Cretaceous. One specimen described in 1998 was even said to possess the largest skull of any land animal. But in 2011, it was renamed as a separate genus, Titanoceratops, on the basis that it shared more characteristics with Triceratops than Pentaceratops.

Pterosaurs (Mini)(Chap Mei)

2.7 (10 votes)
As we’ve seen here in the past, Chap Mei’s prehistoric figures generally lean more towards the preposterous than the precise. Joining their larger brother in the sky are these freaky little flyers.

First, take a gander at this pair. Their toothy, keel-tipped bills might suggest members of the family Ornithocheiridae were it not for their long tails ending in leaf-shaped vanes, which are typical of the family Rhamphorhynchidae.

Spinosaurus (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

2.4 (7 votes)
Another staple of the Chap Mei prehistoric line is that famous, finned, and fearsome fish-eater from Early Cretaceous Africa, Spinosaurus!

This version of the spined lizard measures a good 28 cm long and stands about 16 cm tall at the sail. It is posed in the classic theropod stance with the mouth open wide, the arms flailing, one foot in front of the other, and the tail curling to one side.
