Allosaurus “Raptillion” (Plasma Dinosaurs by Mega Bloks)

This little oddball of a dinosaur toy won’t be winning any beauty OR accuracy contests, but is it a decently entertaining piece in its own right?

Allosaurus (Kid Galaxy/Lontic by Happy Kin)

Although this DK-inspired poseable figure is alright as a generic theropod toy, it’s a pretty weak depiction of the iconic genus it’s meant to represent.

Brachiosaurus (Jurassic Park III Re-Ak A-Tak wave 2, by Hasbro)

This was the first full sized Brachiosaurus in the Jurassic Park line and was released for the Jurassic Park III movie. This marks the begging of Hasbro’s full control of the Jurassic Park toy line after closing Kenner in 2000. It strays away from the playful but not always successful Kenner style and into a …

Carcharodontosaurus (GR Toys by Haolongood)

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a “shark-toothed” theropod model as decked-out and detailed as this one, although a couple of design flaws might have one hesitating at the retail price.

Dilophosaurus (Moveable Toy by 3rd Party/Gosnell)

The 3rd party market can produce some surprisingly good results sometimes – although it’s still not always by their own original merit.

Dimetrodon (unknown)

Review and Photos by Bokisaurus Nostalgia: “a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations”. So you might be wondering why open a review with this word and it’s definition. A toy, especially one that has been with you for decades can elicit such sentiment, …

Dimorphodon (Dinoreplicas)

Papercrafts are not the usual type of collectible models, nevertheless there`s quite a number of models out there made from that versatile but often underestimated material. A few already have reviews here on the blog and it`s about time for a new one. Forum member Dinoreplicas recently provided a free template to make your own …

Dire Wolf (MPC)

The hound of La Brea (and beyond) has surprisingly few toys to its name today; equally surprising is that MPC ended up being the first to tackle it. How does the little figurine fare in quality after 50 years?

Moschops, Sphenacodon, Cynognathus (Marx)

Given that I counted correctly, this here will be my 50th review for the DTB. On the search for a worthy entry for that occasion, I deceided to add some figures to my collection that will provide the chance to combine the jubilee with a premiere cause to my big surprise I found that the …

Postosuchus (Schleich)

Postosuchus, meaning “Crocodile from Post“, is an extinct genus of rauisuchid reptiles comprising two species, P. kirkpatricki and P. alisonae, that lived in what is now North America during the Late Triassic. Its name refers to Post Quarry, a place in Texas where many fossils of the type species, P. kirkpatricki, were found. Representations of …

Quetzalcoatlus (GR Toys by Haolongood)

Overall this appears to be a fine representation of Quetzalcoatlus in many details, but when it comes to some of this animal’s most integral and challenging features the model actually falls short.

Sivatherium (Bestiari)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus Today, we will review a special figure. I originally intended this as my first 2019 review but got delayed. I wanted to review something a little different than your mass produced toy figures, this was the perfect candidate. As a kid, my fondest memories of going to the zoo was …

Spinosaurus (Schleich)

Since its appearance in the JP Franchise as the ultimate antagonist of all the world’s most beloved dinosaur T. rex, Spinosaurus gained a certain popularity that at least made it appear in almost every dinosaur toyline that existed since. Most depictions were more or less oriented on the JP design and no wonder so, the …

Stegosaurus (Jurassic World Live Tour)

One day while driving to work, I passed a billboard that had Blue on it and saw that it was an advertisement for Jurassic World live Tour. I didn’t know what it was but as my kids are big Jurassic Park/World fans, I decided it might be worth going to. So I purchased tickets for …

Supersaurus (Canon Papercraft)

In 1972 the Dry Mesa Quarry in Colorado relvealed an enormous scapula to the paleontologist James A. Jensen. Official description took its time and was published more than a decade later in 1985. While not undisputed over time, Supersaurus is currently accepted as a sovereign diplodocid species growing to tremendous size. Quite a few years …
