Beipiaosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

Beipiaosaurus is a therizinosauroid, although it is not included within the family Therizinosauridae because it is more ‘primitive’. Fossils of therizinosaurs have confused palaeontologists for many years. Their fragmentary remains were originally allied with prosauropods because of their long necks, backwards-facing hips, peg-like teeth suited for a herbivorous lifestyle, and other anatomical features. However, new …

Dinosaurs Of Japan (Capsule Q Museum by Kaiyodo)

For most of the field’s history, the bulk of paleontological research has occurred in North America, a fact reflected in the average dinosaur shelf lineup. There’s certainly no shortage of figures representing classics like Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Stegosaurus, while more obscure species from elsewhere in the world languish in the shadows. However, the rise of …

Feathered Dinos Tube (Safari Ltd)

Safari Ltd have produced several tubes (or ‘toobs’ as they call them) that contain a diverse selection of mini-dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. These tubes are a great choice for the indecisive amongst us. Why pick one single large dinosaur when you can get an entire tube of small dinosaurs for the same price. The …

Nanshiungosaurus (Terra Series by Battat)

By now most of us who concern ourselves with such matters are aware that the Battat Company has launched a new line of dinosaur figures and naturally we’re all very excited about it. Forum member Takama has already reviewed their stellar take on the Pachyrhinosaurus but there are still three other new models that require …

Nothronychus (CollectA)

Review and photos by John Hall In their reconstruction of the dinosaur Nothronychus, CollectA have produced a very good, very strange-looking model. To understand why this apparently unflattering description is a compliment and not a contradiction in terms, we need to review just a little background on Nothronychus and the therizinosaurs – the truly remarkable …

Prehistoric Tube C (CollectA)

Since they first started producing tube sets back in 2015, CollectA has covered a pretty decent variety of prehistoric life, wild animals, sea creatures, and farm stock. In 2021, they went back to the beginning with a third dinosaur (mostly) set consisting of ten figures, all based on previously released toys. First we have this …

Therizinosaurus (2018 Repaint)(Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs,’ edited by Suspsy. As I wrote a review about a repainted figure in my last review for the DTB, I figured I would finish reviewing repainted figures instead of skipping to other ones. So here I am with the Schleich ‘Conquering the Earth’ 2018 repainted Therizinosaurus. As …

Therizinosaurus (Bullyland)

Therizinosaurs were among the strangest dinosaurs ever, and I really like them very much. They were late Cretaceous theropods, yet herbovires, and their overall appearance is so strange and deviates from standard dinosaur scheme pretty much. Huge bellies, a beak and feathers make Therizinosaurs look like gigantic turkeys. Their lifestyle, however, probably resembled that of …

Therizinosaurus (CollectA)

When it comes to dinosaurs, I believe there are essentially two attributes that attract us. They are either fearsome, or fancy. The fearsome ones are easy enough to spot, bearing a great deal of menace and lethality. Others may seem less terrifying, but fall into the “fancy” category. Exotic spiked frills, elaborate head crests, and …

Therizinosaurus (Deluxe version by CollectA)

Review and photos by suspsy Although only scant remains of Therizinosaurus have been uncovered, careful study of its more complete relatives Alxasaurus, Nothronychus, and Falcarius have given us a reasonable idea of how it looked and lived. We also know for a fact that it possessed the largest claws of any dinosaur. At around 21 …

Therizinosaurus (Dinosaur King)

Once again, I am looking into what can happen when a property becomes extremely popular: merchandising. Such is the case for the Dinosaur King franchise. After the success of the arcade game, a manga series and anime were commissioned and, as a result, a series of figure lines were made, from small 2” lines, arcade …

Therizinosaurus (Dinosaurs of China by Safari Ltd.)

The year 1993 was a big year for dinosaur fanatics, the most obvious reason being the release of Jurassic Park in June of that year. It is difficult for me, and likely others of my generation, to grasp just how long ago that was and how much has changed since. Dino-mania swept the globe, and …

Therizinosaurus (Dinotales Series 4 by Kaiyodo)

Review and Photos by Dr Andre Mursch (“Brontodocus”). Edited by Plesiosauria. One of the most bizarre dinosaurs ever found was Therizinosaurus cheloniformis from the Nemegt formation of Mongolia, which is approximately 70 million years old. Today it is a famous dinosaur every enthusiast has an image about how it looked like but that was not …

Therizinosaurus (Great Dinosaurs Collection by Safari Ltd)

Review and photos by Gwangi If you were purchasing dinosaur toys two decades ago there is one family you wouldn’t have seen represented at all, the Therizinosauridae. Though known to science since 1954 it is a family that was very poorly known only until recently. Therizinosaurs represent just how little we know about dinosaurs and how much we …

Therizinosaurus (Papo)

If you’d ask a random person to name a theropod, most would probably be puzzled and not be able to come up with an answer, though anyone who have ever heard of dinosaurs could at least come up with one name: T. rex. The more enthusiast dinosaur fans could easily name some more, like Allosaurus, …
