Classification: Oviraptorosaur

Review: Anzu (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

4.9 (31 votes)
Oviraptorosauria, a group of well known dinosaurs that everyone’s aware of but few people count among their favorites. Personally I’ve been in love with the group since childhood, when I first gazed upon an Oviraptor in “Dougal Dixon’s Dinosaurs”. That illustration left quite an impression; here you had this menacing, scaly, lithe predator stealing an egg under the cover of darkness.

Review: Caudipteryx (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

4.3 (18 votes)
It’s a bird…it’s a dinosaur…it’s possibly both. It’s the Carnegie Caudipteryx! Although reviewed briefly in 2007 it’s time this stunning oviraptorosaur got the more in depth treatment it deserves. Released in 2006 with several other feathered representations of China’s Yikian formation, this is Carnegie’s take on the small theropod that remains one of the best feathered dinosaur models available.

Review: Dino Skulls (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

4.5 (22 votes)
From the savage teeth of tyrannosaurs to the intimidating horns of ceratopsians to the endearing crests of hadrosaurs and to the peculiar noggins of pachycephalosaurs, dinosaur skulls truly are stupendous. I previously reviewed Safari’s toob of prehistoric mammal skulls; now I’ll be looking at their Dino Skulls toob.

Review: Feathered Dinos Tube (Safari Ltd)

Safari Ltd have produced several tubes (or ‘toobs’ as they call them) that contain a diverse selection of mini-dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. These tubes are a great choice for the indecisive amongst us. Why pick one single large dinosaur when you can get an entire tube of small dinosaurs for the same price.

Review: Feathered Dinosaurs Premium Box by Colorata

4.8 (19 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.

Review: Gigantoraptor (CollectA)

2.9 (14 votes)
At four metres tall, eight metres long, and more than two tons in weight, Gigantoraptor is by far the biggest known oviraptorosaurid. Its toothless lower jaw suggests a herbivorous diet (the rest of the skull is unknown), but its powerful limbs and sharp claws meant that it was not an animal to be trifled with.

Review: Gigantoraptor (Dino Expo series 3 by Capcom)

Back in 2016, I posted my first blog on the Dinosaur Toy Blog, Papo’s Woolly Rhino. Now, two and a half years later, I have hit a big mile stone, my 50th review. For big events like this, reviewers either go for a nostalgic piece from their collection, something big or something rare and pretty.

Review: Gigantoraptor (DinoWaurs Survival)

4.4 (7 votes)

It always seems that whenever you start collecting something where you don’t know what is in the packaging, be it a blind bag, booster card pack etc., there is always a certain figure or card they are specifically looking for, such as a rarity or favourite. This review will cover the figure I was hunting for, and eventually got: Gigantoraptor, the giant oviraptor of the Gobi Desert.

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy
When it comes to makers of model sets, the Japanese company Tamiya should be familiar to most. From planes to light infantry, they have created a wide range of products. One of those lines, however, consists of dinosaur models.

Review: Oviraptor (2005 Version, Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

Oviraptor is a genus of small theropod dinosaurs, discovered in Mongolia. This figure belongs to the now extinct Carnegie line by Safari Ltd. It is seen by many fans as the “female” counterpart to the newer 2007 version, due to its more subdued plumage, but it really was never intended to be.

Following on from the recent review of the Papo Oviraptor by a fellow blogger, let us look now at a radically different interpretation of the same dinosaur from the good folk at Safari. This is actually the second Oviraptor released as part of the Carnegie line; the original, released in 2005, featured less elaborate plumage with a simpler colour scheme and no tail fan.

Review: Oviraptor (Dinotales Series 5 by Kaiyodo)

Review and photos by forumite Himmapaan
The Kaiyodo Dinotales Oviraptor displays all the usual qualities the manufacturer is well known for: up-to-date anatomical accuracy and beautiful craftsmanship all united in one tiny, commercially produced model. It is in fact one of the scarcer figures in the line, originally released in Japan as a promotional item accompanying a bottle of lemon drink.
