Allosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

1 (4 votes)

Greetings DinoWaurriors! In spite of all the giant Theropods discovered over the years, I like that Allosaurus can still garner s decent amount of attention from both dino experts and the general public. As one of the major carnivores of the Jurassic (only really beaten by related Saurophaganax during it’s time), it truly earns it’s reputation.

Back in May 2019, the Dual Attack Allosaurus and Nasutoceratops toys began showing up on shelves at Walmart, which caught people by surprise, as no images of these had been revealed online beforehand. The packaging for these two toys in particular was different from the rest of the Dino Rivals assortment, not only with the purple colors used on the packaging, but also the distinctive “Battle at Big Rock” logo on it, with a note saying “as seen in.” Months went by with speculation on what this “Battle at Big Rock” could be, and what role these two dinosaur species would serve in it, as well as for why the Allosaurus seemed to have such a drastic redesign.

Big Al had a lot of early success in films starring in the lead role of predatory dinosaur.  It first appeared in celluloid for the 1925 film, The Lost World.  That Allosaurus was based on the artwork of Charles R. Knight, and had an epic battle with Brontosaurus.

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.

Dinosaur toy history is a relatively new endeavor of study, be it researching the origins of the hobby in the famous Marx line, or trying to catalogue the onslaught of brand-new models from PNSO.

Allosaurus (Kinto Favorite Desktop Model)

Following the split with Dinostoreus in the United States, the Japanese manufacturer Favorite (formerly known as Kinto) has developed several unique dinosaur collectibles. The most interesting of these can arguably be found in their desktop model line, which features detailed polyresin statues of popular species. Their first release for 2010 is a 1:40 scale Allosaurus, a well-known creature that stands apart from its desktop peers with a striking blue coloration.

Allosaurus (Marx)

Originally released in 1955 as part of Marx’s Medium Mold Group, PL-750, today we’re looking at the Marx Allosaurus. This group of toys included the Allosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Hadrosaurus, Pteranodon, Stegosaurus, and Trachodon and was Marx’s second set of dinosaur toys. In 1959 the Marx Allosaurus would be re-released as part of their Revised Mold Group.

As of this writing, there are currently three species of Allosaurus recognized: A. fragilis, A. jimmadseni, and A. europaeus. The former two American species are mostly represented in toy form, with almost every one of them being A. fragilis and three of the ones from Schleich being A. jimmadseni, as they are based on the BBC Walking with Dinosaurs design for “Big Al,” a famous A.

Allosaurus, meaning “different lizard”, is my personal favorite theropod. Is a large predatory dinosaur from the late Jurassic Period of North America and Portugal, with related forms found nearly worldwide. Although most estimates place Allosaurus at roughly 30 feet long, there are fragmentary examples that suggest lengths of up to 40 feet, although these could represent larger allosaurids such as Saurophaganax or Epanterias.

Allosaurus became my favourite dinosaur after I saw it in the Natural History Museum and the BBC’s Allosaurus: A Walking with Dinosaurs Special. Yes, I have been in love with it ever since.

Allosaurus is often pictured alongside Tyrannosaurus rex in pop culture, almost as a sidekick.

The famous Allosaurus was the T.rex of the Late Jurassic. This large Theropod could reach lengths greater than 30 feet. The name means “different or “other” lizard. The first remains of Allosaurus were recovered from the Morrison Formation in Colorado in 1869, but a lot of notable specimens have been recovered from the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry in Utah.

Allosaurus (Papo) (Review)

Available on Amazon here.
Back in January 2008, the Dinosaur Toy Blog announced the unveiling of Papo’s latest addition to their dinosaur line (here). Well, it’s finally for sale so I’ve had the opportunity to review the figure in more detail and provide some detailed photographs. Long story short – the figure is amazing – I can’t take my eyes off it.

Allosaurus (Pencil Sharpener by Unknown Company)

Dinosaur products extend far beyond the familiar realms of CollectA, Papo, Safari, and other such companies. From clothing to cereals to shower heads, there’s not much our prehistoric pals can’t sell. Today I’ll be reviewing an Allosaurus that keeps my pencils nice and sharp.

I’ve had this sharpener since I was a small child, but I honestly don’t recall precisely where or when I acquired it.
