Review: Hadrosaurus (CollectA)

4.8 (65 votes)

Although only known from 35 bones and some teeth from a single specimen, Hadrosaurus is more significant than its fragmentary remains would suggest. Hadrosaurus foulkii was first described by Joseph Leidy in 1858 from remains found in New Jersey’s Woodbury Formation. It is the first dinosaur ever discovered in the United States and the first dinosaur skeleton to ever be mounted for display, anywhere in the world.

Review: Herrerasaurus (Procon CollectA)

Review by forumite Fooman666 (edited by Horridus)
In my last review, I spoke about how many of CollectA’s dinosaurs were misses rather then hits, however I also mentioned that there are a handful of dinosaurs that are hits. This Herrerasaurus is one of them.

Herrerasaurus is a dinosaur very rarely represented in toy form, so I applaud CollectA’s choice to make one.

Review: Hydrotherosaurus (Procon)

3.8 (14 votes)
The long-necked elasmosaurs are one of the most unusual of all prehistoric animals. Most elasmosaurid toys and figures are allocated to the genus Elasmosaurus, the most famous of the very long-necked plesiosaurs, however, in reality Elasmosaurus platyurus is quite a poorly known species, and much of the original skeleton has been lost.

Review: Hypsilophodon family (CollectA)

4 (8 votes)

Hypsilophodon was a tasty little morsel for vacationing and local carnivorous animals during the early Cretaceous. It is believed the Hypsilophodon would have been very fast and nimble. Along with its small size; it was probably a hard catch for the predators, un-like many of us today, Cretaceous predators probably did not like the idea of fast food.

Review: Ichthyovenator (CollectA)

3.6 (14 votes)
Described in 2012, Ichthyovenator is the first definitive spinosaurid to be discovered in Southeast Asia. Its name means, appropriately, ‘fish hunter.’ Even for a spinosaurid, it was particularly weird-looking due to the fact that it had not one, but two sails on its back.

CollectA’s 2014 Ichthyovenator measures 18 cm long.

Review: Iguanodon (CollectA)

2.8 (14 votes)
Discovered in England by Gideon Mantell in 1835, Iguanodon was the second dinosaur to be formally named. Over the years, it has been depicted by paleoartists as a huge and horned lizard, then as an upright and rather dignified-looking biped, and most recently, as a quadrupedal browser that was capable of rearing up on its hind legs.

Review: Iguanodon (Deluxe by CollectA)

5 (36 votes)
As CollectA enters their twelfth year of operation, their products continue to improve by leaps and bounds. Last year, they released a sterling Styracosaurus that utterly eclipsed the original one. Now it’s time to see what their new 2018 Deluxe Iguanodon is all about. Iguanodon is one of those legendary dinosaurs that requires little to no introduction, especially for regular followers of the DTB, so let’s get right to it!

Review: Irritator (CollectA)

3.3 (12 votes)
Nope, that’s not a spelling error or practical joke. There really is a dinosaur named “Irritator”. The Irritator was named as such because, as it passed through the unscrupulous hands of commercial fossil markets, many modifications were made to the original fossil in order to make it appear more desirable.

Review: Jobaria (Deluxe)(Procon/CollectA)

4 (12 votes)
The Procon CollectA line has released a number of exotic creatures for its prehistoric line, many of them associated with super-star paleontologist Paul Sereno. Typically these are only smallish figures for their “small” to “large” product lines; large “deluxe” figures tend to be only popular species that collectors will presumably be more comfortable with.

Review: Kamuysaurus (CollectA)

4.9 (26 votes)

The island nation of Japan is usually not on the top of the list when it comes to dinosaur discoveries, but in the last few years, that quickly changed as more dinosaur fossils are found especially those from the Cretaceous.One of the most recent and exciting discovery from the Land of The Rising Suns is a nearly complete hadrosaur skeleton, Kamuysaurus japonicus.

Review: Kelenken (Deluxe model by CollectA)

4.6 (18 votes)
This year’s new Collecta figures represent a huge leap forward from their rather ugly forebears, and one of the most handsome in the lineup is this sizeable model of the phorusrhacid ‘terror bird’ Kelenken guillermoi, released as part of the ‘Deluxe’ range. It’s a real treat for anyone who’s recently developed a fascination with these sadly extinct enormous carnivorous avians (as I have).

Review: Kentrosaurus (CollectA)

4.2 (13 votes)
Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria.
Kentrosaurus aethiopicus, the ‘sharp point’ or ‘prickle’ lizard, is one of the better known members of the stegosaur family, and though vastly overshadowed by its American cousin – Stegosaurus stenops – it has still managed to have several representations in toy form.
