Review: Piatnitzkysaurus (Jurassic World Dino Trackers Danger Pack)

3.4 (28 votes)

We owe a lot of our pop dinosaur knowledge to books such as “The Humongous Book of Dinosaurs” by David Norman (et al.), written in the very late 1980’s and early 90’s, published by various publishers in many formats, like collectible magazines, all which often included a comprehensive list of dinosaurs from a-z, and from all over the world.

If you had to ask me what my favorite prehistoric marine reptiles are, there’s probably only about a handful or two of them compared to the dinosaurs that they shared the Mesozoic with (and which they often are assumed to be, unfortunately).

Review: Poposaurus (Jurassic World Epic Evolution, Danger Pack by Mattel)

3.8 (51 votes)

Mattel loves Pseudosuchians, or so it would seem. Just this year they released five of these crocodile-line archosaurs. Not since Bullyland’s heyday have we seen so many representatives of the group made by a single company, and I think Mattel must surely win the award for most Pseudosuchians ever produced.

The fauna of the Triassic period was highly diverse with many new branches of life, including those that would soon dominate the globe from the Mesozoic onwards, particularly the archosaurs. Early dinosaurs and pterosaurs themselves aside, perhaps one of the most popular of those Triassic era archosaurs is none other than Postosuchus, having been put in the spotlight thanks to the BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs series in which it featured many years ago.

Review: Proceratosaurus (Jurassic World Attack Pack, by Mattel)

With an awful lot of Jurassic World toys being released from Mattel for 2019, I thought it would be wise to cover one of the 2018 toys that have been neglected from review so far. The subject of today’s review is this cartoonish little theropod that Mattel has dubbed a Proceratosaurus.

Review: Protoceratops (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack by Mattel)

2.8 (10 votes)
One of the best things about the Mattel Jurassic World line is its inclusion of many obscure and unpopular genera. This was something Kenner did with the original line too, producing such oddities as Esstemenosuchus and Scutosaurus. For the Mattel line a lot of unexpected surprises have already hit the shelves or are slated for release.

Review: Pteranodon (Battle Damage)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

The Walmart exclusive (in the United States) Battle Damage series has produced a number of my favorite figures from Mattel’s Jurassic World line. The Battle Damage Pteranodon, which is the subject of this review, is one such figure.

Review: Pteranodon (Jurassic Park: Legacy Amber Collection by Mattel)

3.1 (14 votes)

The Amber Collection Pteranodon is actually quite a mixed bag, with great coloration and good sculpting, but noticeable flaws in articulation.

Say what you will about the film as a whole, but Jurassic Park III had arguably some of the best creature designs in the Jurassic franchise (scientific [in]accuracies notwithstanding).

When the first wave of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom figures by Mattel came out, I, Emperor Dinobot, was highly pleased. I was so pleased, I endeavored to post the first reviews of the first wave of Roarivores here, here, and here during the summer of 2018.

Review: Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Sound Strike by Mattel)

The thing that strikes me, Emperor Dinobot, as both creative and boring, is Mattel’s never-ending releases of the same mold with only slight differences. These Pteranodon toys are all the same, and the Camp Cretaceous Primal Attack Sound Strike version is no exception.

Due to the horrors of Covid-19, I, EmperorDinobot had to stay away from stores for a while during early 2020, which was when the bulk of the Jurassic World: Primal Attack animals came out. Mattel has given us sooooo many figures that it became hard for me to keep track of them.

If you had to ask me what my favorite scene in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is, it would easily be the opening sequence. So once I heard that Mattel was in fact releasing a set based upon that scene, I knew I had to have it, once it was finally released.

Review: Quetzalcoatlus (Jurassic World: Dominion, Massive Action by Mattel)

4.2 (17 votes)

When the prologue (and later, trailer) for Jurassic World: Dominion dropped, it was met with a lot of grievances from our community. To be fair, there was a lot to gripe about, from anachronistic animals mingling together, to the sloppy anatomy typical of the franchise.

Review: Quetzalcoatlus (Jurassic World: Mega Dual Attack by Mattel)

3.1 (107 votes)

Although Quetzalcoatlus finally made its onscreen debut in 2022 courtesy of Jurassic World: Dominion, longtime collectors know full well that Kenner released a toy of the colossal azdharchid all the way back in 1994, which has still not yet been reviewed for the blog (although you can get a fairly good idea of what it was like from my review of the Lost World Pteranodon).

Review: Rajasaurus (Jurassic World: Roar Strikers by Mattel)

3.5 (18 votes)

Rajasaurus, whose name means “princely lizard,” belonged to Majungasaurinae, a subgroup of abelisaurs that ranged from Europe to South Asia during the Late Cretaceous period. Its remains were discovered in the Lameta Formation of Western India, which has been dated to the Maastrichian age (72.1 to 66 million years ago).
