Review: Macrauchenia (Prehistoric Mammal Series by Schleich)

4.9 (10 votes)
The peculiar looking ungulate Macrauchenia (“large neck”) inhabited South America for roughly 7 million years, from the Miocene to the Late Pleistocene, only becoming extinct around 20,000 years ago. This herbivorous animal resembled a camelid superficially, when in reality it was a member of an extinct order called Litopterna.

In many ways, the giant ground sloths are similar to prosauropods in that they are a familiar group, but only one member gets love in toy form. The other group of giant xenarthrans, the glyptodonts, tend get at least get two representatives, but only Megatherium gets a toy form among giant ground sloths.

Review: Ouranosaurus (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

2.8 (12 votes)
The 24 foot Ouranosaurus was an interesting ornithopod from Early Cretaceous Africa, where it coexisted with the fish-eating theropod Suchomimus. Its name means “brave lizard”, and some distinguishing traits of Ouranosaurus were its thumb spikes and the elongated neural spines of its back. It was once assumed that these spines supported a skin sail, but their robust form makes it seem more likely that they were for muscle attachment or supported a hump similar to a camel’s.

Review: Parasaurolophus (2007 version) (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

4.6 (16 votes)
Parasaurolophus is a well known lambeosaurine dinosaur from Late Cretaceous North America, where it lived near the Western Interior Seaway. It sported a large crest on its skull which may have been used for making vocalizations and has caused this genus to be easily recognizable to the public.

When it comes to ornithopods, the  only one that ever seems to get a toy is Parasaurolophus. It is therefore no surprise that the only ornithopod that has graced the Schleich World of History collection is this classic hadrosaur.

Review: Pentaceratops (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Raptoress, edited by Plesiosauria. Figure available from here.
Pentaceratops, an obscure species of ceratopsian dinosaur. It’s a species that’s not often reproduced in toy form, but it has been done a few times before. For Schleich, it’s a first ever, and whilst Schleich is infamous for their often horrible lack of scientific accuracy, I consider this Pentaceratops a glimmer of hope.

Review: Plateosaurus (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

3.9 (8 votes)
The large Late Triassic dinosaur Plateosaurus was a member of the prosauropods, a group of dinosaurs that would give rise to the giants of the Late Jurassic, like Brachiosaurus and Diplodocus, 50 million years later. Plateosaurus averaged around 25 feet in length. The name means “broad lizard”, and Plateosaurus was one of the earliest dinosaurs to be discovered.

Review: Psittacosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review by Amargasaurus cazaui, Edited by Gwangi
In early 2018 Schleich introduced several new models for the year, including a new Psittacosaurus. The model appears to be P. Sibiricus, and is surprisingly well done. Measuring in at just under 5 inches and over 2 inches tall at its highest point, it is a decent sized model.

Review: Pteranodon (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Stolpergeist, edited by Suspsy

Long time collectors may remember Schleich’s first Pteranodon, part of the Replica Saurus line back in 2001. It was an elegant creature, beautifully sculpted, and still pleasing to the modern collector’s eye. In 2018, almost two decades later, Schleich released a new version as part of the Conquering the Earth line.
