A lot of new figures have come out in 2017 [vote for your favourites here – Ed], but perhaps none have become more controversial than the Acrocanthosaurus that Schleich have created for their ‘Conquering the Earth’ dinosaurs collection. Sure, other Schleich models made for this year (like the Allosaurus) have their issues, but this one seems to bear the brunt of the scrutiny when it comes to the reception from dinosaur toy critics.

Adansonia, Baobab (by Schleich and CollectA)

4.9 (10 votes)

The family of Baobabs is one of the most distinct and recognizable trees in the world. Eight species exist under the genus Adansonia, they are native to Subsaharaian Africa, Madagascar and Australia. The natural history of Baobabs is somewhat clouded and methods as molecular clocking yield debatable results. Most accepted amongst scientists seems to be the view, that Australia was reached by the genus by oceanic dispersal long after the southern counterweight continent had detached itself from the rest of Gondwana.

Agustinia (Schleich)

A decent double – beam

Today I would like to do a review of Schleich’s Agustinia. I would like to begin this review with my conclusion: Overall, it is a decent sauropod figure, if it wasn’t for the goofy head and the blunt color scheme.

Schleich definitely saves on colors and efforts in supporting a decent sculpt with decent coloring.

Albertosaurus (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

2.4 (10 votes)
Albertosaurus was a theropod related to Tyrannosaurus which roamed North America during the Late Cretaceous roughly 70 million years ago. Unlike its more famous cousin, Albertosaurus existed earlier and was much smaller, reaching only around 30 feet in length. The name means “Alberta lizard”, pertaining to where the holotype specimen of this animal was discovered in 1884.

Back when I reviewed the 2015 Schleich Spinosaurus, I openly stated how annoyed I was over the fact that the company keeps repeating the same species instead of releasing brand new ones. But when the 2017 models came along, I was sort of relieved, as the models had something about them that suggested that the line was starting over, making any future repeat releases from years prior to 2016 warranted.

Allosaurus (original sculpt) (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

The famous Allosaurus was the T.rex of the Late Jurassic. This large Theropod could reach lengths greater than 30 feet. The name means “different or “other” lizard. The first remains of Allosaurus were recovered from the Morrison Formation in Colorado in 1869, but a lot of notable specimens have been recovered from the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry in Utah.

Released in 2006, Schleich’s small scale Allosaurus is, to me, a breath of fresh air. It proves that the company who is well known among the dinosaur toy collecting circle for butchering many famous dinosaurs each year has finally started to pay attention and at least try to improve their products.

Ah, Allosaurus! What dinosaur line is complete without the “Lion of the Jurassic”? The reason it appears in many toy lines is because Allosaurus is a well known dinosaur that has appeared in many dinosaur books and movies.

Anhanguera (2006)(Schleich)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy

It’s very easy to see where the inspiration for this model came from. While the name stamp on this figure’s wing might say “Anhanguera,” it is very clearly based on the BBC Walking With Dinosaurs series’ Ornithocheirus. Which isn’t the worst inspiration, as the two species are rather closely related.

Anhanguera was a pterosaur that hails from the Santana Formation in Brazil. It is recognized by two crests that were found on its beak (one on the top, one on the bottom). The overall look of this pterosaur resembles that of its cousin Ornithocheirus.

Apatosaurus (2008, Replica-saurus by Schleich)

Size matters. Apatosaurus is the archetypical dinosaur, probably the most famous icon of palaeontology. Many companies have released it as a figure; Schleich did it for the third time now after their 1997 Apatosaurus, who was a blue, heavy, tail-dragging behemoth with a dull mien and its somewhat better baby.

Brontosaurus is back, and as far as anyone can tell it’s here to stay. What does this mean for all of the Apatosaurus toys that have been released over the years? Like Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan, many of them will end up being models that are called Apatosaurus while actually based on Brontosaurus.

Baryonyx (Schleich)

1.8 (11 votes)

If this figure looks familiar that’s because it was reviewed here before! The original review of the Schleich Baryonyx was one of several interesting reviews here by former dinosaur toy blogger Tomhetleere. Sadly, Tomhet left the Dinosaur Toy Blog earlier this year and, to everyone’s dismay, removed his valuable dinotoyblog contributions on his departure.
