Cretaceous Collection (Kaiyodo Capsule Q Museum)

Review and photos by Patryx Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Mosasaurus, and Pteranodon. What a familiar lineup! This is a set decidedly influenced by the hype surrounding the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, consisting of five iconic creatures from all over the Cretaceous. It’s an intriguing concept, as Kaiyodo is revered for their up-to-date reconstructions, …

Ectenosaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

There are presently around 40 known genera of mosasaur, ranging from relatively small fry like Halisaurus and Kourisodon to frightening behemoths like Gnathomortis and Prognathodon. There were also some truly unique ones like Globidens, with its rounded teeth for pulverising ammonites, and Plotosaurus, the most advanced swimmer of them all. But as far as toys …

Isla Nublar Decisive Battle Set (ANIA by Takara Tomy)

Review and photos by Zim, edited by Suspsy June 12, 2015 was the day the Jurassic Park series was revived with a new film called Jurassic World. It features a revamped park along with many new species, including Dimorphodon, Mosasaurus, and a new hybrid, along with old favourites like Tyrannosaurus. While the visuals looked good, …

Jurassic World Minifigures (Hasbro)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy The latest installment of the Jurassic Park franchise has finally hit theaters at the time of this writing. While we continue to discuss what we liked and disliked about the movie on the forum, I thought it would be a great time …

Mini-Dino Multi-Pack (“Battle Damage”)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photographs by Cretaceous Crab, edited by Suspsy Let me start out by saying that this pack of figures are obviously part of the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World toy franchise, and likewise, each figure is designed to be a representation of its silver screen counterpart. We all know that many of the prehistoric species featured …

Mosasaur by Sideshow Dinosauria

Review by Dan Liebman – Dan’s Dinosaurs Regular visitors to the DinoToyBlog know that I enjoy reviewing every new piece in this series, but I really wanted our resident paleontologist Dr. Adam Stuart Smith to have a go at this one; truly, I doubt there would be anyone better suited to this task. Sadly, the …

Mosasaurus ( PNSO Scientific Art Model)

Review and Photos by Bokisaurus Welcome to another dose of PNSO review! It sure is an exciting time to be a collector of prehistoric figures. Today, we will review another fabulous figure from the amazing company PNSO, the mighty Mosasaurus! So relax and enjoy the review. Long before appearing in the Jurassic Park franchise, the …

Mosasaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

mosasaurus carnegie collection safari ltd

If you like retro marine reptiles, this one’s for you. The Carnegie Collection Mosasaurus is clearly based on some archaic paleoart, so it really shouldn’t be taken too seriously – if you try to focus on every wrong aspect with this figure surely you will give yourself a headache! The sculpt – accuracy aside – …

Mosasaurus (Chomper)(Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Mosasaurus has finally made it to the big screen in Jurassic World and while it might not be scientific accurate, if you look at it in terms of the cool factor, one could argue that it was the star of the film. Literally and figuratively it is involved in the biggest splashes of action during …

Mosasaurus (CollectA)

Review and photos by Suspsy. With their deadly jaws, great size, and powerful tails, mosasaurs were the marine equivalent of the tyrannosaurs during the Cretaceous Period. And the most fearsome mosasaur of them all was none other than Mosasaurus itself. One of CollectA’s greatest strengths is their dedication to reflecting the latest paleontological discoveries in their …

Mosasaurus (Dino Escape by Mattel)

Mattel’s take on Jurassic World’s giant sea reptile is back as big and beautiful as ever, with a few new interesting quirks up its plastic sleeve.

Mosasaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Greetings DinoWaurriors!! As mentioned before, Dinowaurs is great for what they were willing to try in their line. Pterosaurs, therapsids and marine reptiles all feature alongside dinosaurs. Here, we take a look at another mighty reptile that dominated the late Cretaceous seas, Mosasaurus. Mosasaurs were one of the major successes at the end of the …

Mosasaurus (Jurassic World Snap Squad by Mattel)

By and large the Snap Squad toys by Mattel have been frustratingly difficult to find. Nearly a year ago I managed to find a few at Wal-Mart, and foolishly didn’t buy them all. That was the first time I ever saw them “in the wild” and I wouldn’t see them again until April 2020, when …

Mosasaurus (Real-Feel)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and Photographs by Cretaceous Crab, edited by Suspsy To paraphrase the character Gray’s signature catchphrase, “We need more teeth!” Following Hasbro’s lackluster attempt with Jurassic World‘s prehistoric marine monster, dinosaur toy collectors of all ages agreed that, “We need a better Mosasaurus toy!” As we have already seen in previous reviews, Mattel has vastly …

Mosasaurus (Recur)

My next Recur review will be that colossal tyrant of the deep, Mosasaurus hoffmannii. In stark contrast to its terrestrial counterpart, T. rex, Mosasaurus had both poor binocular vision and a poor sense of smell. This means that it probably restricted its hunting to the ocean surface, where it would have been easier to locate …
