Ankylosaurus (AAA)

Every dinosaur obsessed child of the 80’s and 90’s no doubt had a few AAA toy dinosaurs in their collection. Although poorly represented on the DTB the toy company AAA produced a large assortment of dinosaur and other animal toys but the quality on them was always a little hit or miss. Although not as …

Ankylosaurus (Bumpy) (Jurassic World Dino-Escape, Roar Attack by Mattel)

They grow up so fast! It was just over 13 months ago when I reviewed the bouncing baby Bumpy for the DTB and now here I am again with another Bumpy review. Only this time, Bumpy isn’t a baby anymore. When I reviewed that baby Bumpy, the animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous hadn’t even …

Ankylosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

I’m pleased to announce that the Dinosaur Toy Blog recently received a number of review samples representing the entire Carnegie Collection, courtesy of Safari Ltd. So, prepare yourself for a Carnegie Collection bonanza of reviews over the next few weeks! We’ve already reviewed the two exciting 2009 additions to the Carnegie collection, the Spinosaurus and …

Ankylosaurus (CollectA)

With its wide muzzle and tiny, leaf-shaped teeth, Ankylosaurus, like the rest of its family, was clearly a herbivore? Or was it? In the summer of 2015, a study of its close Asian relative Pinacosaurus concluded that the animal possessed a long, prehensile tongue that it used to pluck and scoop up not only vegetation, …

Ankylosaurus (Definitely Dinosaurs by Playskool)

Review and photographs by Charles Peckham, edited by Suspsy Definitely Dinosaurs was a quite popular line of toys from Playskool, produced from 1987 to 1996. Playskool is a subsidiary of Hasbro, and it has become a brand recognizable for its distinct style of cartoonish, yet detailed and sturdily built figures. The line played a large …

Ankylosaurus (Deluxe by CollectA)

As the enemy approaches, the gladiator swings his heavy club from side to side, stamps his foot, and growls defiantly. The tyrannosaur is huge and hungry, but the gladiator has fought many battles and sent many would-be killers limping away bloody and broken. He is ready for this one. Have at it! Despite being the …

Ankylosaurus (Dinoland by Sinclair)

Although their figures are often confused with the famous Marx line of dinosaurs, Sinclair’s Ankylosaurs has its own share of unique features.

Ankylosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Greetings DinoWaurriors!!!! With their squat bodies, tough osteoderm armour and lethal club tails, it is no wonder ankylosaurs are sometimes described as the tanks of the Mesozoic. This means it is no surprise that DinoWaurs included several in their line. Here, we look at their representation of the last, largest and most famous of this …

Ankylosaurus (Inpro)

Ankylosaurus has been an enduring presence in dinosaur toy lines over the years, in spite of the fact that other ankylosaurs (like Euoplocephalus) are known from more extensive remains. It’s probably the animal’s sheer size, and the fact that it lived alongside some famous giant theropod or other, that have made it such a pop …

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

For better or worse, Jurassic World toys are upon us. And while most of them, frankly, look worse to me, the iconic Ankylosaurus looked somewhat better. This “fused lizard” measures 16 cm long and is just under 13 cm tall including the raised tail. Main colours are raw umber and khaki with black and brown …

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

We’ve looked at an Ultra set, we’ve looked at a Deluxe set, and now it’s time to look at a Basic Jurassic World Hero Mashers Set. Specifically, that iconic walking battle tank, Ankylosaurus magniventris. The Ankylosaurus is made up of seven parts. The main colours are mustard yellow and cerulean blue with light blue eyes, …

Ankylosaurus (Larami)

Most of the dinosaurs Larami released in the 1990s were more or less decent copies of Invicta originals, made of vinyl. Three animals did not base on Invicta originals: A Styracosaurus, a Parasaurolophus and the reviewed Ankylosaurus. I probably don´t promise too much when I say this is one of the ugliest animals that have …

Ankylosaurus (Mini)(Chap Mei)

The various Ankylosaurus toys that have been reviewed here on the DTB over the years range from the truly superb to the decidedly subpar. But the one I’ve got to review today may well be the most hideous of them all. This here is the Mini Ankylosaurus from Chap Mei. It measures about 10.5 cm …

Ankylosaurus (Natural History Museum by Toyway)

Photographs and review by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy Ankylosaurus seems to capture the imagination of children and adults alike, mainly due to its morphology. Often described as a walking tank, its osteoderms provided a most impressive defence, not to mention the power behind its solid bone club, which could instantly smash the bones of even …

Ankylosaurus (Papo)

First things first – this is yet another “Ankylosaurus” model that is nothing of the sort, instead rather obviously being based on Euoplocephalus (would giving these figures the correct name really harm their commercial prospects that much?). It’s also Papo’s very latest dinosaur, released a few months ago and well overdue the Dinosaur Toy Blog …
