Allosaurus (UKRD)

2.5 (4 votes)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

The UKRD dinosaurs were mass-produced back in the early 1990s’, and don’t seem to be particularly sought after today, but some of them appear to have been inspired by John Sibbick’s palaeoart in David Norman’s 1985 Encyclopaedia of Dinosaurs, which I think makes them somewhat interesting.

Ankylosaurus (UKRD)

2 (3 votes)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

UKRD released a series of dinosaur toys in the early 1990s’, and I remember my kindergarten class had dozens of them. They came in at least three size classes, with the medium ones being most prevalent. Many of them seem to have been modelled after John Sibbick’s artwork in David Norman’s classic 1985 Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Dinosaurs, though with different colour schemes (clear examples of this are the Allosaurus, Parasaurolophus, and Iguanodon).

Apatosaurus (UKRD)

2.8 (5 votes)
The mysterious early 1990s UKRD dinosaurs, then. Although clearly cheapo Chinasaurs, they were somehow a cut above – some people have referred to them as ‘semi-serious‘ while others have described them as ‘sub-museum‘. Good descriptions both, I think. Although clearly meant to be played with by children and with no pretentions to being a ‘museum-endorsed’ line whatsoever, they generally at least resembled the animal in question, even if in a slightly outdated fashion.

Pachycephalosaurus (large) (UKRD)

2.3 (4 votes)

Marginocephalia is a clade full of interesting species that are largely hard to define by their body, with their only real definition being their heads. There are two groups, the ceratopsians (for which the number of models are near innumerable) and the less popular pachycephalosaurs. There are many figures of them, though far from the numbers of their ceratopsian counter parts.

Pachycephalosaurus (UKRD)

Fans of the dome headed pachycephalosaurs are hard pressed to find toys representing this group with one exception, Pachycephalosaurus itself.  While not as popular as the likes of Tyrannosaurus or Triceratops this genus is unique enough to have been reproduced in plastic many times over, even by substandard companies like UKRD. 

Pteranodon (UKRD)

1 (7 votes)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

It probably wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Pteranodon is the most popular of all pterosaurs, and probably the one with most toys to its name. To this day, it remains one of the most recognisable pterosaurs, if not prehistoric animals in general, no doubt due to its very distinct head crest.

Tyrannosaurus rex (Large)(UKRD)

2.1 (7 votes)

Review and photographs by Stolpergeist, edited by Suspsy

UKRD is a rather mysterious company that produced mostly John Sibbick inspired dinosaur figures from 1987 to 1993. In fact a lot of the inspirations for UKRD’s toy figures can be found in one single book, “The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs” (1985), written by Dr.

Tyrannosaurus rex (Small)(UKRD)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
When I was young, there were a lot of dinosaur toys that my parents spoiled me with. These toys ranged from Imperials to Definitely Dinosaurs, to Jurassic Park toys, and eventually the Carnegie Collection. Out of all of these toys, only the Carnegies, the DDs, and another line have remained in my possession to this day.
