Deinonychus (Soft model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

In spite of not having a name ending in ‘raptor’, Deinonychus remains a high-profile dromaeosaur in the public imagination, and rightly so for an animal that revolutionised our understanding of dinosaurs. This fairly small and affordable toy is manufactured by Favorite, and is clearly modelled on their larger (and somewhat more expensive) resin ‘Desktop’ model. …

Dunkleosteus (Favorite Co. Ltd)

Review and photographs by Tim Sosa In the Devonian period, the largest animals were arthrodires, huge armored fish informally referred to as placoderms. ‘Arthrodire’ means “joint-necked,” referring to the fact that there was a hinge in their armor between the thorax and the back of the head.

Dunkleosteus (Like Hobby by ThinkArt)

Front three-quarter view of ThinkArt Dunkleosteus

If somebody has heard of just one Paleozoic fish, it’s probably Dunkleosteus, designated yesterday as Ohio’s official state fossil fish!

Iguanodon (Oldies desktop model by Kinto/Favorite Co. Ltd.)

Review and photos by Tyrantqueen. For my first Dinosaur Toy Blog review I am going to look at the 1850s-style Iguanodon in the Oldies desktop model series by Kinto/Favorite co. The Oldies series of replicas is intended to be a nostalgic take on outdated interpretations of dinosaurs from yesteryear. Each replica comes with a wooden …

Iguanodon (Soft Model 2020 series by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

This is an overall pleasing and recognizable figure of the famous dinosaur, but it does have some setbacks in design for a 2020 rendition.

Megalodon (Soft Model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

Review and photos by Zim, edited by Suspsy Otodus megalodon is probably one of the most well-recognized prehistoric animals of all time due to our fascination of giant versions of animals, in this case, sharks. Though it is frequently depicted as an oversized great white shark due to the resemblance between their teeth, many experts …
