Classification: Ankylosaur

Edmontonia (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

4 (15 votes)
The burly, heavily armored, herbivorous nodosaur Edmontonia inhabited North America during the Late Cretaceous period some 70 million years ago. The name simply means “from Edmonton”, as the type specimen was discovered in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation near the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada by George Paterson in 1924.

Euoplocephalus (AAA)

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy
Ankylosaurs are often a popular group for toy companies to make. Like armoured tanks on legs, complete with a powerful club on the tail, these are very eye-catching and attractive to young children. As was the case with today’s review subject: Euoplocephalus by AAA, a toy company that was readily available when I was five years old or so.

Euoplocephalus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

4.2 (12 votes)
One of the earliest Carnegie figures made (it’s stamped ‘© 1988’), this Euoplocephalus is also the line’s very first ankylosaur figure. Remarkably, this review will also be this blog’s first to feature a toy that’s actually labelled Euoplocephalus, rather than simply de facto representing the genus (like the Favorite “Ankylosaurus” and original Schleich “Saichania“).

Euoplocephalus (DinoWaurs Survival)

3.4 (8 votes)
Photographs and review by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy
Once again I am back to reviewing another of the DinoWaurs line, seeing what is worth hunting for and what is not. With ankylosaurs being described as the tanks of the Mesozoic, it’s unsurprising that a couple would be included in this line.

Euoplocephalus (Jurassic Hunters by Geoworld)

2.5 (6 votes)
Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
Up today is the first ankylosaur that Geoworld ever released for their line. Euoplocephalus was once the go-to ankylosaur for toy companies in the 90s’ due to the fact that it was a better known species then its family’s namesake.

Euoplocephalus (Terra Series by Battat)

4.7 (15 votes)
Euoplocephalus is one of the largest and best-known ankylosaurids, with several nearly complete fossil specimens. Indeed, many popular depictions of Ankylosaurus in books, movies, and yes, toy lines, are actually based on Euoplocephalus.

Feast your eyes on the reissued Battat Terra series Euoplocephalus.

Euoplocephalus in Egg Maquette (Sideshow Dinosauria)

4 (4 votes)
In 2013, Sideshow Collectibles released an extremely limited edition model featuring a baby Euoplocephalus. Of course, every Sideshow Dinosauria model is produced in limited quantities, and once they are sold out, they often fetch high prices at auction sites. So why all the fuss over this sweet little dinosaur?

Gastonia (Schleich)

3.9 (76 votes)

Before we begin the review, I would like to extend my gratitude towards Happy Hen Toys for sending this figure along as a review sample. Happy Hen Toys is a U.S. distributor of figures by Safari, Papo, CollectA, Schleich, and other similar companies. In the case of CollectA they’re often the only place that sells their products at a reasonable price within the United States.

Halfbaby Dinosaur Set (Yantai, distributed by Learnplay Inc.)

3.7 (7 votes)

Review and photos by Charles Peckham, edited by Suspsy

Trying to find information about either the creator of these toys, a Chinese company named Yantai, or their American distributor, Learnplay Inc., isn’t easy. According to one of the few sources I was able to find, Yantai has been around since 2011 and their Halftoy line is just one of hundreds of designs they have made.
