Before we begin the review, I would like to extend my gratitude towards Happy Hen Toys for sending this figure along as a review sample. Happy Hen Toys is a U.S. distributor of figures by Safari, Papo, CollectA, Schleich, and other similar companies. In the case of CollectA they’re often the only place that sells their products at a reasonable price within the United States.

Review: Giganotosaurus (2019 repaint by Schleich)

Roaring into today’s review is a figure that I never thought I would own. The Giganotosaurus you see in the photos is not a new sculpt by Schleich, but a repaint of their now retired World of History version from 2015.

When it comes to carnivorous dinosaurs that are larger than Tyrannosaurus rex, most companies go for the ever-popular Spinosaurus nowadays. When Safari released a Giganotosaurus for the Carnegie Collection in 2008, other companies took notice and started dishing out their own chosen carcharodontosaurid species.

Review: Giganotosaurus Juvenile (Age of the Dinos 2019 by Schleich)

Schleich isn’t exactly wanting for criticism on this board. Plenty of paleo fans and collectors – myself included – tend to be underwhelmed or outright repulsed by the variety of ugly-looking toys Schleich produces in the name of educational purposes. Not all Schleich products are bad, though, and at least a few of their prehistoric line figures have managed to surprise collectors – even if was almost by accident.

Review: Glyptodon (Prehistoric Mammal Series by Schleich)

I want you to close your eyes, close your eyes and travel back, back to a distant era. It’s 2002; Spider-Man is #1 in the box office, the X-Files broadcasts its two hour finale, the UK is declared free of foot-and-mouth disease and Schleich, a company now notorious for its abominable depictions of prehistoric life was actually a competent company worth collecting.

Review: Herrerasaurus (McDonald’s Happy Meal Exclusive by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Stolpergeist, edited by Suspsy

Schleich has a long history of collaborating with other companies to make exclusive figures, including small giveaways that represented company mascots, figures that were simply animals with corporation logos printed on them, or the figures available in the Schleich magazines by Blue Ocean Entertainment.

Review: Herrerasaurus (The First Giants by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
Before this year concludes, I figured it would be best to review the very last large dinosaur model that has been released by Schleich as part of their “First Giants” sub-line made specifically for 2016. Herrerasaurus may not be the most obscure dinosaur they’ve ever made (that honour goes to the Barapasaurus), but it may be a little surprising for us to see that they chose to replicate something that hails from the Triassic for a change.

Review: Iguanodon (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

3.7 (13 votes)
The primitive ornithopod dinosaur Iguanodon lived during the Early Cretaceous period in Europe, approximately 125 million years ago. Animals like Iguanodon eventually gave rise to the hadrosaurs of the Late Cretaceous. In the past, numerous remains from all over the globe have been attributed to this genus, spanning from the Late Jurassic all the way until the end of the Cretaceous period, but current research suggests that the only valid species of Iguanodon (I.

Review: Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex (Schleich)

Just half a year back German company Schleich, infamous amongst collectors for their often awful dinosaur depictions, surprisingly released a bunch of figures that made some collector’s hearts beat faster. Amongst them was a somewhat inaccurate, but nevertheless impressive Tyrannosaurus, rated by some as the best T.

Review: Kaprosuchus (DINOSAURS by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Stolpergeist, edited by Suspsy

It’s about time to look at Schleich’s 2021 releases, starting with their Kaprosuchus. The animal in question is a mahajangasuchid crocodyliform from the Late Cretaceous of Niger. The known material is restricted to the skull, so that is the part most attention has to be given when reconstructing Kaprosuchus.

Review: Kentrosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Kentrosaurus is one of those dinosaurs that almost everyone in this community has heard of, as it’s basically a cousin of Stegosaurus with more spikes and spines coming out of its shoulders. It may have been smaller than Stegosaurus, but that did not mean that it was not potentially dangerous, as the animal had enough spikes to take on even the largest of predators.

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria.
A small member of the stegosaur family from Tanzania, Kentrosaurus aethiopicus is often hidden in the shadow of its much larger and more famous big brother, Stegosaurus stenops. That’s not to say that other toy lines haven’t made their own versions of it; CollectA and Safari Ltd both have a Kentrosaurus for example, but they are rather small models that remain overlooked next to their well-known American cousin.

Review: Kentrosaurus(Mini, by Schleich)

3.5 (4 votes)

Schleich has changed their typical toy dinosaurs lineup over the past two years.  They have added new playsets and sizes for their prehistoric line of toys.  The mini sized dinosaurs were introduced in 2015 with eight figures.  Due to their low cost, different sculpts, and new paint jobs that differ from their bigger brethren, the minis were quite popular. 

Review: Kronosaurus (Schleich)

2 (23 votes)
Big nasty pliosaurs are the order of the day – and there are plenty more to come – this review represents the first in a series of pliosaur blog entries I’m working on. A compare and contrast deal; battle of the pliosaur toys so to speak! We have already looked in detail at the popular Chap Mei Liopleurodon here so I will continue this series with another popular figure, the Kronosaurus by Schleich.
