Protoceratops (Definitely Dinosaurs by Playskool)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy

Protoceratops is the only species I actively collect multiple figures of, and luckily, many companies have released their own versions. This has allowed me to sample lines that I usually wouldn’t have much interest in, such as Playskool’s Definitely Dinosaurs.

Protoceratops (Deluxe by CollectA)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

Protoceratops figures tend not to be very large, most likely to better communicate the real animal’s small size. Breaking with tradition, CollectA has decided to create this figure in 1/6 scale, to go along with their Deluxe Velociraptor.

As many have pointed out, this figure is quite small for 1/6 scale, measuring 9.5 inches (24 cm) long, making it closer to 1/9 or 1/10 scale.

Protoceratops (Dino World by Kabaya)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

Dino World was a line of small models similar to Kaiyodo’s Dino Tales. Unlike Dino Tales, these toys are sold by the Japanese candy company Kabaya and came packaged with candy. This review will be looking at #12 of 24 in the series, the hatching Protoceratops. 

Like Dino Tales figures, this toy is very small.

Protoceratops (DinoWaurs Survival)

3.8 (5 votes)

Dinosaurs can capture the public eye and get into the spot light for many reasons. Maybe they are large and powerful. Maybe they are peculiar. Or perhaps they are so common they inspire legends. Such is the way of the ‘sheep of the Cretaceous’, Protoceratops. The bones of this small ceratopsian are so common across Mongolia, they may have inspired the legend of the Griffon, as tales spread to Greek merchants from travellers who spotted the fossil remains.

Protoceratops (Inpro)

If any of you have been wondering why I’ve been slacking off on reviews lately I have a good excuse, I just don’t have a lot left to review! Almost my entire collection has been reviewed already by myself or others, with minor exception. So in order to review something I’ve had to scrape the bottom of the barrel, literally.

Protoceratops (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack by Mattel)

2.6 (9 votes)
One of the best things about the Mattel Jurassic World line is its inclusion of many obscure and unpopular genera. This was something Kenner did with the original line too, producing such oddities as Esstemenosuchus and Scutosaurus. For the Mattel line a lot of unexpected surprises have already hit the shelves or are slated for release.

Protoceratops (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 5)

Review by DinoLord
A sheep sized ceratopsian from Late Cretaceous Mongolia; Protoceratops was one of the earlier ceratopsians. Unlike later ceratopsians, Protoceratops did not have huge nasal or brow horns. However, it was no weakling. Perhaps the most famous Protoceratops fossil is the “Fighting Dinosaurs” specimen. It shows a Protoceratops interlocked with a Velociraptor, engaged in mortal combat.

Protoceratops (Starlux)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy

I know what you’re all thinking: “Another Protoceratops review by Loon? It must be a day that ends in ‘y’!” This time it’s the one from Starlux, which is around 40 years old.

Being made in the 1970s, it’d be incredibly unfair to judge this figure by modern scientific standards; what kind of idiot would do that?

Protoceratops (Tyco)

3.8 (4 votes)
Protoceratops was a smaller more primitive ceratopsian dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous in what is now Mongolia.  Size wise it is most commonly compared to a sheep and many fossilized specimens of this dinosaur have been discovered from tiny eggs and hatchlings all the way up to full grown adults. 

Protoceratops (Wild Past)

Review and photos by bermudasaurus 303, edited by Suspsy

We currently live in a perfect time for every dinosaur enthusiast, with figures all over the market, from old companies like Safari Ltd. and Schleich, to newer companies like Eofauna, or the subject of this review, the Wildpast Protoceratops.

Protoceratops andrewsi (Beasts of the Mesozoic 1:18 by Creative Beast Studio)

4.8 (83 votes)

Protoceratops is a staple of classic dinosaur multimedia. What the “first horned face” lacks in size and ornamentation when compared to later ceratopsian relatives, it makes up for with excellent preservation in the fossil record, its discovery dating back to the Central Asiatic Expeditions of the early 1900s.

Protoceratops vs. Velociraptor (Dinosauria by Sideshow)

5 (3 votes)
Review by Dan L, Photos by Jeremy K.
Despite the public’s insatiable love of maniraptorans, it took over a year before Sideshow added one to their Dinosauria line of statues. This introduction is not without a few twists, however – and not all of them will be well-received by the foaming, rabid consumer base.

Psittacosaurus (Beasts of the Mesozoic 1:18 by Creative Beast Studio)

4.9 (46 votes)

A few quibbles over design don’t stop this lively little figurine from exceeding my expectations and becoming one of my new favorites in the Beasts of the Mesozoic line.

While fans of the “Beasts of the Mesozoic” articulated action figure line eagerly await the release of the formidable Tyrannosaur series, Creative Beast Studios founder David Silva has provided another treat for collectors in the form of six re-scaled genera from the prior two “Beasts” series.
