Tchi – what?!
Here we have a funny dinosaur figure. It´s funny and bizarre for at least six reasons. It´s not only its overall look. It´s also because
1. its manufacturer company is unknown and
2. it was distributed by coffee trading company Tchibo from Germany who
3.

Review: Compsognathus (Dinowaurs Survival)

3.8 (8 votes)

Greetings Dinowaurriors! For a dinosaur made popular by the Jurassic Park franchise, appearing in several films and having one of the most gruesome entries in the book series, it’s odd that Compsognathus hasn’t had as many figures as one may suspect. A few of the big names have done a rendition, and it is, of course, a staple of Jurassic Park and World lines, but not as many as co-stars Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus.

Over the years, many different dinosaurs have been made into toys and models by different companies, but it’s only recently that a creature that’s appeared in the media multiple times is finally getting the attention it deserves.Compsognathus has had a bit of resurgence on the dino toy market, with Schleich releasing two as a part of a playset and Rebor doing what they do best by pandering to those who love the scaly little whippersnappers that took down a little girl in the Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Review: Compsognathus (Jurassic Park 30th Anniversary, Captivz by ToyMonster)

Captivz Compsognathus

Compsognathus longipes was a small late Jurassic theropod discovered in Europe and the first theropod known from mostly complete remains. For a time, it was also the smallest dinosaur ever discovered. Compsognathus doesn’t really need an introduction, however, we all know it from the Jurassic Park franchise.

Though the Procompsognathus had already made its mark on the original Jurassic Park novel, the unassuming ‘Compy’ only truly first scampered into the public conscious in a big way in 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park in which it is depicted as a deceptively cute, harmless, and even playful critter right up until it overwhelms its unsuspecting prey with sheer numbers.

Review: Dinosaur Advent Calendar 2016 (Schleich)

Review and photos by Tim Sosa
This year Schleich followed in the footsteps of companies like Lego and Playmobil in offering an advent calendar, but this one is dinosaur-themed! 24 days of dinosaur goodies sounds pretty attractive, so I bit the bullet and picked one up. I opened it long before Christmas, so that maybe this review can help you decide whether to buy one yourself.

Review: Feathered Dinosaurs Premium Box by Colorata

4.8 (20 votes)
This year has seen toy companies embrace feathered dinosaurs like never before, if not always with perfect execution. Accuracy stalwarts like Safari Ltd and especially Kaiyodo have been giving us feathered dinosaurs for years, but now even Papo and Schleich are getting on the plumage train. Another late convert is Japanese company Colorata.

I ended up picking up this Legacy Collection 6 pack during the 2018 holiday season while it was on clearance at Target, after waiting most of the year being indecisive about it. I’ve decided it’s definitely a nice little set of figures, even if most are repaints.

Review: Sciurumimus (CollectA)

4.5 (13 votes)

Normally when toy companies make juvenile dinosaurs, they just take known adult dinosaurs and make a smaller cuter version. Even respectable companies like Safari and CollectA have gone this route in the past. I typically don’t have any interest in these, but a fair number of taxa are known only from infant or juvenile remains.

Review: Seven Little Dinosaurs (China Post by PNSO)

4.1 (7 votes)

Within the unfortunately short time of its existence, Chinese company PNSO released two products in collaboration or commission for  China Post. One is their glorious Mamenchisaurus, the other is a boxed set of “Seven Little Dinosaurs”. Unlike the “Six Little Dinosaurs” the seven do not depict juvenile dinosaurs but rather adult ones, though they are indeed not big figures.

Review: Sinosauropteryx (Dinotales Series 1 by Kaiyodo)

4.5 (6 votes)
Over two decades after paleontologist John Ostrom described Deinonychus and subsequently launched the “Dinosaur Renaissance” yet a new genus would be found that would change the public perception of dinosaurs and finally bring forth the last piece of evidence needed to connect dinosaurs to birds. Sinosauropteryx prima was the first non-avian dinosaur to be found with a covering of feathers on its body.
