Machairoceratops (Perez) (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

4.2 (25 votes)

The subject of today’s review is like an apparition from the past, as far as PNSO is concerned. Although the PNSO Machairoceratops is only a year old PNSO has released so many new figures since then, and gone through so many phases, that this figure can be considered ancient history in the PNSO timeline.

Medusaceratops (CollectA)

3.9 (17 votes)
Medusaceratops lokii is the oldest known chasmosaurine ceratopsid. The unique profile of its frill led to its awesome-sounding name, which refers to the Greek gorgon Medusa and the Marvel supervillain Loki. In a perfect world then, its archenemy would be a tyrannosaurid called Perseussaurus thori.

This 2015 toy, which measures about 14.5 cm long, is the very first plastic representation of Medusaceratops.

Monoclonius (Tyco)

Review and photos by Griffin
Monoclonius was always known as a sort of “little brother” to Triceratops, characterized by its short frill and singular nose horn.  Sadly for it, like several other dinosaurs I remember growing up with like Trachodon and Brontosaurus, it’s no longer believed to be a valid genus of dinosaur. 

Nasutoceratops (CollectA)

4.5 (17 votes)
Nasutoceratops was a large centrosaurine ceratopsid from the Campanian age of the Late Cretaceous. It is distinguished by a particularly fat snout and brow horns that greatly resemble those of extant cattle.

The 2015 Nasutoceratops measures 13 cm long. Its body is medium grey with black legs, light brown claws, and a light grey underbelly.

Nasutoceratops (Jurassic World Dino-Rivals, Duel Attack by Mattel)

4.6 (14 votes)

Nasutoceratops was a centrosaurine ceratopsian dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous in the south-western United States. Only having been described in 2013 this very unique looking dinosaur has gained a bit of popularity with toys released from both Safari and CollectA in 2015, and now from Mattel for their Jurassic World line.

Nasutoceratops (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Although I’m sure most of you reading this blog keep up to date with the latest in dinosaur discoveries, the ceratopsian our review tackles today was only recently discovered and so it seems prudent to give a brief overview of that animal itself. Dinosaur lovers have been blessed with an abundance of new ceratopsians out of North America lately and among them is the increasingly popular Nasutoceratops or “large-nosed horn face” and while the nose is indeed large, the pair of “Texas long-horns” on the head also helps make this a unique looking dinosaur.

Pachyrhinosaurus (‘Patchi’, Walking with Dinosaurs the Movie 3D, by Vivid Toy Group Ltd)

2.7 (6 votes)
Another day, another dinosaur. Yesterday we looked at the standard sized Gorgon, today we’ll cast our eyes on another action figure in this series, Gorgon’s ceratopsid nemesis, Patchi. The figure is sold separately, but is also available as part of a twin pack alongside Gorgon, so if you’re thinking of acquiring them both, you can save a little money in the process.

Pachyrhinosaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

4.2 (13 votes)

Pachyrhinosaurus was one of the largest centrosaurines, those ceratopsians that tended to have relatively short frills and either large nasal horns or thick snouts. It is also the largest known ceratopsian to not possess horns on its nose or its brow, the most speciose, with P. canadensis and P.

Pachyrhinosaurus (Beasts of the Mesozoic)

4.8 (51 votes)

Spring 2021 saw the arrival of the second wave of ceratopsians from the Beasts of the Mesozoic series. Fans of Dave Silva’s crowdfunded line of articulated figures will already be familiar with the basic elements that define this series. These strikingly colorful figures have a tremendous range of poseability thanks to their intricately engineered design (which may have the added benefit of making them more difficult for bootleggers to imitate).

Pachyrhinosaurus (Haolonggood)

4.8 (51 votes)

Another Pachyrhinosaurus is not something I needed in my collection. I already have five of them. But Pachyrhinosaurus is a favorite ceratopsian of mine and none of the figures I own quite nail the look of it for me. Safari’s comes close but it’s a bit too svelte for my tastes, and while Battat’s has the bulk that I desire its paintjob holds it back from true greatness.

Pachyrhinosaurus (Papo) (New for 2010)

3.7 (10 votes)
The Pachyrhinosaurus by Papo is easily one of the most (if not the most) anticipated figures of 2010. This is one of the first times where papo has released one of their figures so early in the year; I’m glad I got mine so soon!

Pachyrhinosaurus, despite being a very funky ceratopsian, is very obscure, and has been largely looked over by toy companies.

Pachyrhinosaurus (Sinoceratops) (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Roarivores by Mattel)

4.4 (10 votes)
Say what you want about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, you do have to admire that it brought so many obscure genera to the pop culture forefront. Because of that a lot of poorly represented dinosaurs have a chance at some fame which is only a good thing for those of us that collect dinosaur reproductions.

Pachyrhinosaurus (Terra series by Battat)

Well, nobody was expecting this wonderful surprise! After about 20 years of retirement, Battat has decided to re-release their popular collection of dinosaur models, including a lineup of brand new species.  This revelation came almost out of the blue, when I happened upon some of these early new releases at a Target store earlier this week.
