Allosaurus (Jurassic World Basher and Biters by, Hasbro)

Available from Amazon.com here and Amazon.co.uk here. 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. Knight, and had an epic battle with Brontosaurus.  Years later, …

Allosaurus Assault (Jurassic Park by Hasbro)

Review and photos by Paul Carter AKA Carnosaur, edited by Suspsy 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. Even more disappointing …

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

For better or worse, Jurassic World toys are upon us. And while most of them, frankly, look worse to me, the iconic Ankylosaurus looked somewhat better. 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 …

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

We’ve looked at an Ultra set, we’ve looked at a Deluxe set, and now it’s time to look at a Basic Jurassic World Hero Mashers Set. Specifically, that iconic walking battle tank, Ankylosaurus magniventris. The Ankylosaurus is made up of seven parts. The main colours are mustard yellow and cerulean blue with light blue eyes, …

Ankylosaurus (Playskool Heroes Jurassic World, by Hasbro)

When you think of the toys made for Jurassic World by Hasbro, there are  probably a lot of colorful adjectives that pop into your head .  I warn you not utter them out loud as there are preschool toys present.  One word I did not hear many people say about the toy line was “fun”.  Well today I am …

Brachiosaurus (Jurassic Park III Re-Ak A-Tak wave 2, by Hasbro)

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 …

Carnoraptor (Jurassic World Hybrids by Hasbro)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy 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 …

Carnotaurus with Ichthyosaurus (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

Time for a second helping of Hero Mashers! This time we’ll be looking at Carnotaurus, the mighty “meat-eating bull” of South America, and Ichthyosaurus, the English “fish lizard” that helped make Mary Anning a legend among paleontologists. The Carnotaurus is made up of ten parts. Once assembled, it ends up being articulated at the neck, …

Ceratosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Ah, Jurassic Park, what it is, what it was, and what it shall be. In its fourth instalment, Jurassic World (weather you liked it or not) brought forth that warm and fuzzy inner child that beats deep inside each of us. I think many of us wanted to feel the same way about the toys …

Dilophosaurus Rex (Jurassic World Hybrids by Hasbro)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy 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. rex …

Dilophosaurus with Pteranodon (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

For my fifth and final Hero Mashers review, I’ll be looking at two very familiar faces from the JP franchise: Dilophosaurus and Pteranodon. 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 …

Dimorphodon (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Surely enough as the seasons change, and time goes by, toys will be forgotten. Such is the case with this one, a 3 year old toy that I got second-hand in a lot of dinosaurs primarily purchased not as a collector, but as a father. So now I have a Jurassic World Hasbro toy, something …

Iguanodon (Jurassic Park Junior by Playskool / Hasbro)

Iguanodon Jurassic Park Junior toy

This so-called “Li’l Iguanodon” was part of a short-lived ‘Jurassic Park Junior’ toy line released in 2001, presumably prompted by the release of Jurassic Park 3 in cinemas that same year. The line was aimed at young audiences and is made up of cutesy renditions of several dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park film series. With …

Indominus Rex (Electronic Chomping Version)(Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Review and photos by stargatedalek. Figure available from Amazon.com here and Amazon.co.uk here. 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 …

Indominus Rex (Jurassic World Bashers and Biters by Hasbro)

Review and photographs by Takama, edited by Suspsy The Jurassic World line is arguably one of the worst dinosaur toy lines I have ever seen. When you must pick through the different models at the store just to find one that is not broken, then you know the toy line is unworthy of existence. Just …
