Review: Armadon (Primal Rage by Playmates)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

The 1994 Atari fighting game Primal Rage featured a roster of stop-motion animated dinosaurs and giant apes that battled it out on a post-apocalyptic Earth (or “Urth”), which seems like an irresistible concept for a toyline, with Playmates jumping to the task in 1996, possibly to coincide with the sequel of the game which never materialised (toys based on characters from the sequel were also produced).

Howdy from wonderful, windy Wyoming! Today we’ll take a (satirical) look at Bicaputosaurus ivani, sculpted by an unknown artist.

For the first time, a national big box department store steps to the front, ahead of offerings by typical dinosaur manufacturers, offering this rare dinosaur to any discriminating collector.

What’s this, another Hybrid? Yes, indeed it is, and the reason I keep buying these is because I wish to see the Jurassic World page complete with all of the Bashers and Biters models. Apart from the Indominus Rex, no other hybrids appeared in Jurassic World (though I fear the same can’t be said about its upcoming sequel), so I am happy for now that we will not get any clueless mothers or rabid fans requesting the likes of Papo or Rebor to create something like this.

Although the Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect was far from successful upon its release, it has since generated a cult following from some hardcore collectors. One of the most well known and easiest to find of the hybrids is the Compstegnathus.

When you read the title of this review, what do you expect to see? If you’re expecting some sort of new species of Dilophosaurus, then you’re giving the minds at Hasbro way too much credit. In reality, it’s a retool of their Bashers and Biters T.

Review: Dingy Dino (TMNT by Playmates)

3.1 (12 votes)

Cowabunga! Who’d have ever believed a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles product would show up here on the Dinosaur Toy Blog? Well, it’s really not that far-fetched considering that dinosaurs have been included in nearly every single incarnation of the franchise. Today I’ll be looking at one such toy, the “Dingy Dino.”

Dingy, who is clearly intended to be a Triceratops, was released alongside his master Cave-Turtle Leo way back in 1992 as part of the original TMNT line.

After more than a decade since Jurassic Park III was released, the next entry in the franchise finally got to see the day of light in 2015, after a long and troubled development cycle. That film was none other then Jurassic World.

I’ve never done one but recently there has been a craze with “un-boxing videos”, so I decided to give it a shot (minus the video!). From what I can tell this is the first of this sort of review on the blog so first time all around.

The Jurassic World line is arguably one of the worst dinosaur toy lines I have ever seen. When you must pick through the different models at the store just to find one that is not broken, then you know the toy line is unworthy of existence.

Well, thanks to the Indominus Rex’s unfortunate popularity with the current generation, Hasbro thought it would be a good idea to release an entire line dedicated to fully fictional dinosaurs, complete with ridiculous designs made to make the most rambunctious of children shout out the word “BADASS” before getting reprimanded by their parents for cursing.

*Disclaimer: “Indominus Rex“ is not a real dinosaur. It is a fictional genetically modified hybrid dinosaur created for the Jurassic World franchise.*
Jurassic World will be exploding onto screens in less than a month and many of us dino nuts are shaking in anticipation!

The new hybrid created for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has received several figures from Mattel. The first one that was readily available was the ‘Super Posable’ Indoraptor. The ‘Grab ‘n Growl’ Indoraptor, which will be the subject of this review, is the second one to be released.

For those living under a rock, the “Indoraptor” is the primary antagonist creature in the upcoming film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Like its predecessor, the Indominus rex from the previous film, this creature is a genetically-engineered hybrid, and while the base genome is (presumably) a dromeaosaur, it is not a representation of any known dinosaur species.

June 12, 2015 was the day the Jurassic Park series was revived with a new film called Jurassic World. It features a revamped park along with many new species, including Dimorphodon, Mosasaurus, and a new hybrid, along with old favourites like Tyrannosaurus.

Review: Loch Ness Monster (Monsters in My Pocket by Matchbox, Series 2)

2.3 (6 votes)

Monsters in My Pocket was a toy franchise that started in the 80s that consisted of a series of small, rubber figures. These figures were each only a few inches tall and could each come in a variety of solid colors. What makes this toy line special is that each figure is modeled after a certain creature that exists in some sort of real culture.
