Review: Achelousaurus (CollectA)

3.1 (24 votes)
Achelousaurus was a ceratopsian that lived during the Campanian stage of the late Cretacious period.  It is named after the Greek river deity, Achelous who, according to myth, had his horn broken off during a fight with the famous Greek hero, Hercules.  The skull of Achelousaurus has a low, flat boss (or lumpy mass of bone) on its snout that looks like the animal has had its horn broken off.  

Review: Acrocanthosaurus (Deluxe Prehistoric Collection by CollectA)

3.7 (32 votes)
This has been a good year for fans of the early Cretaceous allosauroid, Acrocanthosaurus. Battat re-released their classic model, Rebor is getting in on the action with their own representation and CollectA has come out with their deluxe version of the theropod. Critics of the CollectA model point out that it looks awfully similar to last year’s Carcharadontosaurus.

Review: Adansonia, Baobab (by Schleich and CollectA)

4.8 (21 votes)

The family of Baobabs is one of the most distinct and recognizable trees in the world. Eight species exist under the genus Adansonia, they are native to Subsaharaian Africa, Madagascar and Australia. The natural history of Baobabs is somewhat clouded and methods as molecular clocking yield debatable results.

Review: Afrovenator (CollectA) (New for 2010)

2.7 (19 votes)
Afrovenator – that’s one most people haven’t (and won’t) heard of. It almost makes me surprised that CollectA did one (but I guess if any of the mainstream dinosaur companies were to do one, it would be them).

Afrovenator itself was a megalosaur (or allosaur or spinosaur, does anybody even know?) from mid-jurassic Africa, who was about thirty feet long, and was presumably a pretty nasty fellow.

Review: Agustinia (Deluxe Collection, CollectA)

Review and Photos by Nicholas Anning (“Brontozaurus”). Edited by Plesiosauria.
CollectA/Procon is somewhat unique among dinosaur toy companies in that they have an extensive range of dinosaur toys which represent relatively obscure dinosaurs. While these toys seem to vary in quality (to say the least), they at least deserve points for trying.

Review by EmperorDinobot, edited by Plesiosauria.
Once upon a while, companies decide to make some very obscure dinosaur genera. Procon is one of those companies, releasing this year a number of dinosaurs not many have heard of, such as Becklespinax, Rebbachisaurus, and so on. Agustinia is one such dinosaur.

Review: Alamosaurus (CollectA)

3.1 (24 votes)
Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria.
One of the last and most massive of the sauropods, Alamosaurus sanjuanensis, was a colossal titanosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. Its reign lasted right up until the K-T extinction and it lived in the same environments as Tyrannosaurus rex – it has been found all over North America.

Review and Photos by Takama, edited by Plesiosauria.
We’re all aware how CollectA have evolved, in their mere eight years of existence, from the makers of childish garbage to the makers of some amazing figures. The subject of today’s review falls clearly into the former category. It was released in CollectA’s second year and is butt-ugly to boot.

Review: Amargasaurus (CollectA)

2.1 (20 votes)

I have heard it said that good things come in small packages, and the 2008 CollectA‘s Amargasaurus is certainly a diminutive figure. This was CollectA’s first attempt at the highly distinguishable sauropod, before releasing a deluxe figure a few years later. Of course, this strange early cretaceous dicraeosaurid was small by sauropod standards reaching 10 meters (33 feet) long and approx the same height as a Savanna elephant.

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria.
One of the most recognisable of the sauropods, Amargasaurus cazaui has been well represented in toy form, with examples from most of the major brands. This is the second Amargasaurus that CollectA have released, this model dating back to 2012 and part of their 1:40 scale line – four years since their first attempt at recreating this beastie.

Review: Ampelosaurus (CollectA)

4.3 (26 votes)
Among prehistoric collectible enthusiasts, the company currently known as CollectA has a considerable reputation to cope with. Their figures, although competitively priced, have ranged anywhere from decent to embarrassing over the past few years. Fortunately, their lineup for 2011 kicks off with a batch of fresh faces that have clearly been more carefully constructed than their predecessors.

Review: Andrewsarchus (CollectA)

4.8 (23 votes)
Andrewsarchus mongoliensis could be thought of as the mammalian equivalent of Spinosaurus in that it was a gigantic carnivore known only from scant remains. Namely, a single skull discovered in Mongolia by the legendary Roy Chapman Andrews in 1923. Once thought to have been a mesonychid, Andrewsarchus has since been determined to be an artiodactyl, and thus related to entelodonts, hippos, and whales.

Review: Ankylosaurus (CollectA)

2.1 (19 votes)
With its wide muzzle and tiny, leaf-shaped teeth, Ankylosaurus, like the rest of its family, was clearly a herbivore? Or was it? In the summer of 2015, a study of its close Asian relative Pinacosaurus concluded that the animal possessed a long, prehensile tongue that it used to pluck and scoop up not only vegetation, but possibly insects and other invertebrates on occasion.
