Allosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Ah, Allosaurus! What dinosaur line is complete without the “Lion of the Jurassic”? The reason it appears in many toy lines is because Allosaurus is a well known dinosaur that has appeared in many dinosaur books and movies. In 2012, Schleich released …

Anhanguera (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan `Takama`Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Anhanguera was a pterosaur that hails from the Santana Formation in Brazil. It is recognized by two crests that were found on its beak (one on the top, one on the bottom). The overall look of this pterosaur resembles that of its cousin …

Apatosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy. Brontosaurus is back, and as far as anyone can tell it’s here to stay. What does this mean for all of the Apatosaurus toys that have been released over the years? Like Brachiosaurus and Giraffatitan, many of them will end up being …

Brachiosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Well everyone, it’s time for another Schleich World of History review. This  one will cover the 2012 Brachiosaurus. If you have been following my other WoH reviews, you  know that 2012 was the year Schleich revamped and renamed their dinosaur line, making smaller …

Dimetrodon (The First Giants by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Over the years, Schleich made many different creatures for their prehistoric line, but not once had they ever made something hailing from the Paleozoic era, not even a Dimetrodon. However, in 2016, they rectified this by not only releasing a Dimetrodon, but also a Dunkleosteus as well, …

Giganotosaurus (2019 repaint by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Dinotoyblog. Roaring into today’s review is a figure that I never thought I would own. The Giganotosaurus you see in the photos is not a new sculpt by Schleich, but a repaint of their now retired World of History version from 2015. If you read my 2015 Spinosaurus …

Giganotosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy When it comes to carnivorous dinosaurs that are larger than Tyrannosaurus rex, most companies go for the ever-popular Spinosaurus nowadays. When Safari released a Giganotosaurus for the Carnegie Collection in 2008, other companies took notice and started dishing out their own chosen carcharodontosaurid species. …

Giganotosaurus Juvenile (Age of the Dinos 2019 by Schleich)

Although the figure has its drawbacks, this is a marked improvement over the company’s other depictions of this Argentinian theropod.

Kentrosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria. A small member of the stegosaur family from Tanzania, Kentrosaurus aethiopicus is often hidden in the shadow of its much larger and more famous big brother, Stegosaurus stenops. That’s not to say that other toy lines haven’t made their own versions of it; CollectA and Safari Ltd …

Parasaurolophus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy 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. The Parasaurolophus is …

Pentaceratops (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Raptoress, edited by Plesiosauria. Figure available from Amazon.com 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 …

Quetzalcoatlus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy When it comes to pterosaurs, most companies tend to go with the famous Pteranodon for their line of dinosaur figures. Schleich is different in this way as they seem to prefer the much larger Quetzalcoatlus. They  have made five different models of this …

Saichania (World of History by Schleich)

On a cold and cloudy day I was doing some work at home when there was a sudden thump next to me. I looked over; my daughter was looking up at me with her Schleich Saichania in her hand. She placed the Saichania next to me and told me to play. I stopped what I …

Spinosaurus (2015)(World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Before I begin this review, I want to get something off my chest. In case it wasn’t already apparent, I like Schleich’s World Of History dinosaur figures. I think they are very distinctive from other brands, and I think each model has …

Styracosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy Hi everyone! You have heard of Styracosaurus, right? If so, then you’re likely a regular member of our community. If you’re not (I know I wasn’t when I first found this blog), then you may have read about it in many different …
