Big Al had a lot of early success in films starring in the lead role of predatory dinosaur. It first appeared in celluloid for the 1925 film, The Lost World. That Allosaurus was based on the artwork of Charles R.
In 2011, prototype images of an Allosaurus, a Carnotaurus, a Pachyrhinosaurus, and a Stegosaurus for the Jurassic Park toy line began floating around the web. Sadly, only the Allosaurus and Pachyrhinosaurus would make it to production in the summer of 2013.
This “fused lizard” measures 16 cm long and is just under 13 cm tall including the raised tail. Main colours are raw umber and khaki with black and brown eyes, a pink mouth, flat brown for the spots and the JW logo on the left thigh, and red and white for the seemingly obligatory and always silly permanent wound on the left flank.
The Ankylosaurus is made up of seven parts. The main colours are mustard yellow and cerulean blue with light blue eyes, a pink mouth, and white teeth.
This was the first full sized Brachiosaurus in the Jurassic Park line and was released for the Jurassic Park III movie. This marks the begging of Hasbro’s full control of the Jurassic Park toy line after closing Kenner in 2000. It strays away from the playful but not always successful Kenner style and into a less interesting, boring, mass produced, and shall I say lower quality toys.
What’s this, another Hybrid? Yes, indeed it is, and the reason I keep buying these is because I wish to see the Jurassic World page complete with all of the Bashers and Biters models. Apart from the Indominus Rex, no other hybrids appeared in Jurassic World (though I fear the same can’t be said about its upcoming sequel), so I am happy for now that we will not get any clueless mothers or rabid fans requesting the likes of Papo or Rebor to create something like this.
The Carnotaurus is made up of ten parts. Once assembled, it ends up being articulated at the neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and two sections of the tail.
When you read the title of this review, what do you expect to see? If you’re expecting some sort of new species of Dilophosaurus, then you’re giving the minds at Hasbro way too much credit. In reality, it’s a retool of their Bashers and Biters T.
The Dilophosaurus is made up of twelve pieces. Once assembled, the carnivore measures about 24 cm long. Cyan blue is the main colour with dark blue markings, swamp green for the twin crests and claws, yellow eyes, white teeth, and a pink mouth.
I’ve never done one but recently there has been a craze with “un-boxing videos”, so I decided to give it a shot (minus the video!). From what I can tell this is the first of this sort of review on the blog so first time all around.
