Therizinosaurus (Dinotales Series 4 by Kaiyodo)

Review and Photos by Dr Andre Mursch (“Brontodocus”). Edited by Plesiosauria. One of the most bizarre dinosaurs ever found was Therizinosaurus cheloniformis from the Nemegt formation of Mongolia, which is approximately 70 million years old. Today it is a famous dinosaur every enthusiast has an image about how it looked like but that was not …

Triceratops (Advance Megasofubi by Kaiyodo)

Review and Photographs by Triceratops83, edited by Suspsy Triceratops is one dinosaur that needs no introduction, as it has been represented in toy and model form literally hundreds of times. Also needless of an introduction is the Japanese brand Kaiyodo, responsible for some of the very best plastic and vinyl dinosaur interpretations. The latest one …

Triceratops (Dinotales Series 5 by Kaiyodo)

Triceratops is the largest known ceratopsian and lived at the very end of the reign of dinosaurs in what is now North America. Kaiyodo came out with two different renditions of this dinosaur, one in its first series and then a newer, more up to date rendition in its fifth series featured here. This is …

Tyrannosaurus (Dinotales Series 1 by Kaiyodo)

While Kaiyodo is probably most beloved for their production of more obscure prehistoric critters they made sure not to neglect the classic fan favorites too. In their 7 series run the Dinotales line produced no less than three distinct models of Tyrannosaurus, not counting the Tyrannosaurus skeleton and the slew of repaints produced for each …

Tyrannosaurus (Dinotales Series 5 by Kaiyodo)

With its head tilted back and puny arms stretched out the Kaiyodo Dinotales series 5 Tyrannosaurus presents the genus in a unique posture not often depicted in the mass market. This animal clearly has something to say; perhaps he’s attempting to impress a mate or reaffirming his dominance. Whatever the case, poses like this are …

Tyrannosaurus (skeleton) (Dinotales Series 1 by Kaiyodo)

The Dinotales series is well-known for high-fidelity detail at a preposterously small scale and low price. Even so, I must admit to having been sceptical as to Kaiyodo’s ability to successfully recreate highly complex dinosaur skeletons – such as this Tyrannosaurus – at the same minute size as their fleshed out reconstructions. Of course, they’ve …

Tyrannosaurus Collection (Kaiyodo Capsule Q Museum)

A few years back the Japanese manufacturer of kits and figurines known as Kaiyodo announced the release of their “Capsule Q Museum” series. The various collections that have been released cover everything from anime characters, animals, food and, thankfully, dinosaurs. This was great news because with the discontinuation of their Dinotales line we were all …

Tyrannosaurus Rex (DinoTales series 7 by Kaiyodo)

Tyrannosaurus rex was a large theropod dinosaur that lived in north america from 68 to 65 million years ago. “Rex” is commonly called the “king of the dinosaurs”, so it surprises me how many models do not do justice to the “king”. This piece by Kaiyodo does it justice, and more. The sculpt is very …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Kaiyodo) (Dinomania Series 1)

The Dinomania series by Kaiyodo contains small but very detailed and accurate snap-together figures. The Dinomania series is a rerelease – all the figure in this line were originally released as the UHA Chocolasaur DinoTales Series 3. These Kaiyodo figures in their Dinomania guise came packaged in a box so that the species you got …

Tyrannosaurus rex (Sofubi Toy Box by Kaiyodo)

Review and photos by Cretaceous Crab, edited by Suspsy As soon as I saw this figure starting to pop up on social media and online toy venues, I knew I had to have it. I mean, look at it! Released in 2018 from Kaiyodo’s Sofubi Toy Box series, this Tyrannosaurus rex comes in three different …
