Ever since someone reviewed a Boley Dilophosaurus, I began to rethink exactly what is open for reviewing on this blog. I thought I would test the waters by reviewing one of my cheap “Chinasaurs” brand dinosaurs that I have been buying every time I go to the local vegetable or fruit festivals, whenever they are available.

Velociraptor (Safari Ltd)

3.6 (13 votes)

Back in 1993 Safari Ltd. released a rather large Velociraptor that allegedly belonged to their “Dinosaurs of China” line. As it turns out, it didn’t and while it has been briefly reviewed on the blog already that review was the old style “single paragraph” review. That, in conjunction with our new revelation as to the true origins of this model has compelled me to review it yet again, and this time a bit more in depth.

Feathered dromaeosaurs are always welcome on the toy market, and especially feathered Velociraptor figures. Perhaps rather unsurprisingly – given that a certain 20-year-old film is raking in the cash yet again this year – the biggest dinosaur toy names (in the West, anyway) continue to peddle scandalously nude figures.

Velociraptor (The Lost World: Jurassic Park Series 1 by Kenner)

In my desperation to review a dinosaur model I found something I can review that technically may have been reviewed here already, sort of. In 2010 Marc (Horridus) reviewed the Kenner “Jurassic Park” Velociraptor for the blog. And yes, this is indeed the same toy that he reviewed.

Velociraptor (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

For a long time now, too long in fact, various collectable dinosaur companies have tried and failed to make a properly feathered and accurate representation of one of the world’s most popular dinosaurs; Velociraptor and its kin the stem-birds we call dromaeosaurs or “raptors.” When I first started collecting dinosaur toys the best representations included those by Bullyland and CollectA and while we commend their efforts to popularize feathered dinosaurs they ultimately failed to make convincing looking animals.

It looks as though Papo finally has some competition. This Velociraptor by Wild Safari is great, and it can be found pretty cheap too. I bought mine for $7.99. It has to be the best Safari velociraptor ever (All of the other safari velociraptors are ugly in my opinion!).

Velociraptor (World of History by Schleich)

The last two reviews dealt with a Jurassic Park – inspired dinosaur and a new Schleich release. So here is your perfect synthesis, a review of Schleich´s new Velociraptor. It is way better than their last Velociraptor, but this was not difficult to achieve, to be honest.

Velociraptor mongoliensis (Beasts of the Mesozoic: Raptor Series by Creative Beast Studio)

In 2016, a Kickstarter campaign was launched that would help to revolutionize the world of dinosaur toys and collectibles by bringing forth figures that were not only highly detailed and highly articulated, but also scientifically accurate for the most part.

Velociraptor osmolskae “Alpha” (Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

4.1 (33 votes)

When is a Velociraptor not a Velociraptor? I would imagine every dinosaur fan is familiar with the famous “swift thief”, and seasoned enthusiasts are probably aware there’s a history of confusion surrounding the dromaeosaur’s identification. V. mongoliensis, the type species of Velociraptor, is currently the primary species recognized under the genus; however it might not be the only one.

Velociraptor vs Protoceratops “Mongolian Fight” (Favorite Co. Ltd.)

4.7 (6 votes)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

Discovered in 1971, the “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossil is particularly special, as it preserved two dinosaurs apparently in a literal fight to the death. Because of this, the combatants, Protoceratops and Velociraptor, have joined the most legendary dinosaur rivalries. You’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of paleoart that doesn’t depict the two going at each other.

Velociraptor with Microceratus (Destruct-A-Saurs)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

3.2 (6 votes)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy

The Destruct-A-Saurs line of figures is yet another reminder of how controversial the distribution for Mattel’s Jurassic World figures has been. They were originally to be exclusive to Toys R Us (in the United States at least), and with the stores closing nationwide, it is no surprise these would soon seem hard to get for those in the States, let alone elsewhere.

Velociraptor “Charlie” (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

I know what your thinking, do we need to see another Jurassic World toy review?  Can this toy be any better than its predecessors?  Even though I made up my mind not to review anymore toys from Hasbro’s JW line, for some reason I am compelled to give it another try and go down with the ship.

Xtractaurs (Mattel)

I don’t own all the Xtractaurs, and I’m not sure if anyone does, but I feel I’ve been able to amass enough to give a decent overview of the series. Anyone who wants to review an individual Xtractaur for the Dinosaur Toy Blog, included in this review or otherwise, has my blessing.

Z-Cardz Dinosaurs Series 2 (California Creations)

1.3 (6 votes)

The second set of dinosaurs in the Z-Cardz line reveals some surprising, if questionable, choices going on in the lineup for these little collectibles.

Constructible strategy games are a concept typically involving 3D punch-out card minifigures, which can be collected and utilized for play in large-scale games between players.

Dinosaur figure collectors! The future is now thanks to science! The super articulated, somehow scientifically accurate dinosaur figures are now a reality! Super articulated dinosaur figures have existed in the past, such as the Carnage figures by ReSaurus that are so dear to me, but that was twenty years ago!
