With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom now available on home media, I decided to review another mini dinosaur from the film’s toy line. This time it’s Baryonyx, a dinosaur I grew to like thanks to its big screen debut in the movie.

They’re here! They’re finally here! The long awaited line of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom figures by Mattel! Ever since the first pictures to emerge, fans of the franchise and of the toys have been touting them as “better” than Hasbro’s much criticized line of JW dinosaur figures.

Back in 2017, one of the best preserved fossils discovered was making the rounds. It was named Borealopelta markmitchelli, “Mark Mitchell’s northern shield”, honoring the man who spent more than 7,000 hours carefully preparing the fossil material, and slowly carving it out from the rock it rested in.

It’s, it’s a dinosaur”, these were the first words uttered in Jurassic Park upon seeing the first full sized dinosaur in the film, a Brachiosaurus. We see our protagonist’s reactions first and their acting sets the tone. The music swells, building to the moment we’ve been waiting for.

There’s been a trend in Mattel’s Jurassic World line to not only include the various species from the films, but also ones that have only appeared in the books. This explains the inclusion of the obscure Callovosaurus, a dryosaurid known from fragmentary remains found in England.

Review: Carcharodontosaurus (Jurassic World Dino Escape 2nd ver. by Mattel)

3 (22 votes)

What makes this particular release stand out is its coloration, which contrasts starkly with the plainer pattern of the figure’s first release.

The 1990s were a stirring time for big theropod news: the crocodile-snouted spinosaur Suchomimus from Niger was described in 1998, new fragments of the now-(in)famous Spinosaurus itself were discovered in 1996 and 1998, and the gigantic Giganotosaurus was officially named in 1995.

It has been a good year for Carchorodontosaurus, as I mentioned in my review of the figure by PNSO. The PNSO figure, along with the one by GR toys, gave sophisticated collectors a fantastic, updated pair of “shark toothed lizards” to display and admire whilst sipping brandy by the fireside.

By now, most dinosaur fans have probably watched the new Netflix series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Like many viewers, it seems, I was pleasantly surprised by the show. I was, of course, equally excited by the new toys being produced by Mattel for the show.

Back in December 2017, the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released and fan favorite Carnotaurus was there in all its glory . . . only to get wrecked by the other fan favorite from this franchise, the Tyrannosaurus rex.

Review: Carnotaurus (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Hammond Collection by Mattel)

4.2 (66 votes)

Mattel loves Carnotaurus. Our friends at DinoToyCollector.com have catalogued 22 Carnotaurus figures for Mattel’s Jurassic World line, but that number includes the minis, Snap Squad, and similar toys too, and their various repaints and repackages. Either way, the company has still produced an impressive array of Carnotaurus toys.

Review: Ceratosaurus (Jurassic Park 3, Hammond Collection by Mattel)

3.9 (33 votes)

Gripe all you want about Jurassic Park 3 but we must give credit where credit is due. The movie featured a diverse assortment of dinosaurs with arguably the best color schemes in the franchise. Gone were the dull grays and browns of the first two films, JP3 went wild like a kid with a coloring book and the movie was better for it, though not by much.

Review: Ceratosaurus (Roarivores)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Ceratosaurus was certainly not the biggest or the most dangerous theropod of Late Jurassic North America, but thanks to its prominent nasal horn, it was probably the most distinctive. As a result, it is rather popular among dinosaur fans; renowned paleontologist Robert Bakker has declared it to have been his favourite since 1958.

Review: Chialingosaurus (Jurassic World Dino-Escape, Fierce Force by Mattel)

2.1 (26 votes)

Chialingosaurus kuani was a stegosaurian that lived 160 million years ago in China. It is one of the oldest species of stegosaurs known and would have resembled Kentrosaurus in appearance. You would be forgiven for having never heard of it, not many have.

Review: Coelurus (Jurassic World, Dino-Rivals by Mattel)

3.8 (17 votes)

Described by O. C. Marsh in 1879, Ceolurus is known only from a single skeleton found within the Morrison formation. This benign little theropod dates back to the late Jurassic where it rubbed shoulders with the likes of Allosaurus, Stegososaurus, and Brachiosaurus.
