Diabloceratops (Collecta)

2.9 (11 votes)
Diabloceratops, thanks no doubt to its distinctive appearance, media exposure and – of course – that irresistible name, is proving to be quite popular with dinosaur toy manufacturers. This year, both Collecta and Safari are releasing a figure (the latter in their Wild Safari range), with Collecta’s being first out of the blocks.

Dilophosaurus (CollectA)

Review and photos by Nathan Morris (‘Takama’)
It’s a well-known fact that CollectA’s prehistoric animal figures vary in quality. Some of them are good and incorporate current palaeontological knowledge, while others are poorly sculpted and sacrifice accuracy. The subject of today’s review belongs to the latter group, but to be fair, the toy was released when CollectA was just venturing into the dinosaur toy business in 2007.

Dilophosaurus (Deluxe by CollectA)

3.7 (24 votes)

Thanks to its appearance in Jurassic Park, Dilophosaurus is, in the words of one paleontologist, “pretty much the best, worst-known dinosaur.” Even if you’re well aware that it wasn’t small and didn’t spit venom and didn’t have a frill around its neck, you probably grew up reading about how fragile its twin crests were and how relatively weak its bite was.

Dimetrodon (CollectA)

4.9 (22 votes)
For hours, Thorn has been wandering along the banks in search of a meal. Now, at long last, her eye catches sight of a telltale movement in the murky water. Immediately, she plunges into the river and sinks her teeth into the unsuspecting shark’s flesh. The shark retaliates with a vicious bite of its own, but Thorn ignores the pain and hauls her victim out onto dry land.

Diplodocus (Collecta)

Guest review by Niroot Puttapipat (Himmapaan)
Diplodocids are largely represented in figure form by the ubiquitous Apatosaurus (or ‘generic-o-pod’, as a certain friend and esteemed colleague has it), with Diplodocus itself being relatively few in number. I greeted the news of the CollectA model with mixed feelings; glad that there is another to add to the list, but afraid, quite prejudicially, that it might disappoint.

Diplodocus repaint 2020 (CollectA)

4.4 (15 votes)

Diplodocus is one of the most famous and iconic dinosaurs and has been around for some time now. Its graceful form is easily recognizable so it has become one of the staple species in pop culture, from merchandise and films.With that, information about it already saturate the forum as well as the blogosphere so we can skip all that. 

This Diplodocus figure we are reviewing today is a repaint of CollectA’s first version that was released way back in 2013 if I remember correctly.This figure is in a rearing pose; a pose made iconic by the legendary Battat Diplodocus way back in the mid 1990’s and has yet to be surpassed despite a few attempts through the years from various brands.

Doedicurus (CollectA)

5 (32 votes)

Weighing up to more than two tons, Doedicurus clavicaudatus, sometimes known as the morning star-tailed glyptodon, was one of the last and largest members of its family. Like most other prehistoric jumbo armadillos, it featured a heavy domed carapace and an armoured tail, but in its case, the tail was extra long and terminated in a thick club that probably bore spikes.

Dolichorhynchops (CollectA)

4.1 (16 votes)
Swift, maneuverable, and equipped with narrow jaws full of sharp teeth, Dolichorhynchops was a pitiless predator of Cretaceous fish. But size counted for a lot back then, and this short-necked plesiosaur would have been a delicious dinner for large sharks and even larger mosasaurs. Indeed, one mosasaur specimen discovered in 1918 had the remains of a Dolichorhynchops in its stomach!

Dreadnoughtus (CollectA)

Review and images by bmathison1972; edited by Suspsy

Dreadnoughtus schrani is a titanosaur from the Late Cretaceous (Campanian to Maastrichtian) of present-day South America. Remains of only two individuals have been described to date, both from the Cerro Fortaleza Formation in Argentina. Dreadnoughtus was one of the largest dinosaurs; estimations put its total length at approximately 26 meters and its weight at 49,000 kilograms, although the holotype is believed to have not been fully grown at the time it died.

Dunkleosteus (Deluxe by CollectA)

4.6 (20 votes)
Throughout Earth’s lengthy history, there have been many horrifying sea monsters. Titanic sharks. Nightmare whales. Bloodthirsty mosasaurs. Savage plesiosaurs. But long before any of those brutes evolved, there was the dreaded Dunkleosteus. Measuring at least six metres long, weighing over a ton, and equipped with bone-slicing jaws, this ginormous placoderm ranged throughout the waters of the Late Devonian and fed on other armoured fish, early sharks, ammonites, and pretty much anything else it wanted.

Edaphosaurus (CollectA Deluxe 1:20)

5 (20 votes)

The long wait has ended,… 12 years it’s been since the Bullyland Edaphosaurus was discontinued and despite its renown toy companies all over the planet refrain from producing figures of that enigmatic permian synapsid. It may be because of the overwhelming popularity and superficial similarity of its kin Dimetrodon, which in contrast is often repeated by all the companies.

Edmontosaurus (Deluxe by CollectA)

4.9 (77 votes)

The two valid species of the North American hadrosaur EdmontosaurusE. annectens and E. regalis, are known from multiple fossil specimens. Taken together, they make the genus “fully known.” But while a complete skeleton can give us a reasonable idea about an animal’s appearance in life, it is not necessarily a full or accurate one.
