Classification: Pachycephalosaur

Dino Skulls (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

4.6 (14 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. There are eleven skulls in total, all painted medium brown with streaks of dark grey for a worn appearance.

Every now and again the Dinosaur Toy Blog receives independent reviews of the same toy within hours of each other. And so, in the generous spirit of the season, here is a rare special double-bill review by two guest reviewers, Loon and Carnosaur, who both have something to say about the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Dracorex by Mattel.

Dracorex (Schleich)

Schleich is a brand known among collectors both for their wide distribution and for their usually inaccurate prehistoric models, although sometimes (especially in the most recent years), they produced some decent or even great ones like their two versions of Kentrosaurus and last year’s Spinosaurus.

Dracorex (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Where reviews of new toys are concerned this 2012 release has somehow gone neglected. Now, amidst the flurry of reviews for newer models I’m writing one for this little guy. I’m writing of course about the Safari 2012 Dracorex, one of a stellar lineup of toys released last year and the only one from that lineup that has yet to be reviewed.

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.

The latest installment of the Jurassic Park franchise has finally hit theaters at the time of this writing. While we continue to discuss what we liked and disliked about the movie on the forum, I thought it would be a great time to tackle my first review of JP merchandise for the blog.

Micromachines dinosaurs (National Geographic Collection/ Micromachines)

4.5 (4 votes)
Micromachines, a brand noted for their wide range of miniature automobiles, stepped outside the box when they produced a series of dinosaurs in association with National Geographic. Obviously they are all tiny, a bit smaller than the figures in Kaiyodo’s dinotales range, but they are quite nice and very collectible.

Mini-Dino Multi-Pack (“Battle Damage”)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photographs by Cretaceous Crab, edited by Suspsy
Let me start out by saying that this pack of figures are obviously part of the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World toy franchise, and likewise, each figure is designed to be a representation of its silver screen counterpart. We all know that many of the prehistoric species featured in this franchise are not scientifically accurate.

Pachycephalosaurus (Austin) (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

4.5 (24 votes)

It was almost exactly a year ago when I reviewed the Safari 2020 Pachycephalosaurus, a much-needed modern rendition of the most popular of the bone-headed dinosaurs. In that review I declared the Safari Pachycephalosaurus the definitive figure of that genus, but now I’m back again with another Pachycephalosaurus, this time by PNSO.

Pachycephalosaurus (Battat)

Photographs by Doug Watson, edited by Dinotoyblog
The North American marginocephalian, Pachycephalosaurus, has been reconstructed as a toy or model quite often. This review is the best example for this thesis. To put it bluntly at the beginning: The Battat Pachycephalosaurus is one of the best Pachys out there, due to its anatomical correctness, very detailed head, credible posture, and unusual paint job.

Pachycephalosaurus (Bullyland)

4.4 (8 votes)

During this seasonal, festive, frenzy of reviews, lets take a small time warp back in time and bring forth a toy that has been left behind by the relentless march of time. In 2009, Bullyland,  the purveyor of  goofy eyed yet expressive figures, released a interesting looking Pachycephalosaurus. It wasn’t a perfect figure in the time it was made, but looking back at the era in which it was released, it was a whole different world of dinosaur sculpts for collectors to choose from. 

Pachycephalosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

4 (13 votes)
Pachycephalosaurus belongs to the general group of dinosaurs called marginocephalia which encompasses all the dome-headed pachycephalosaurs as well as all of the ceratopsians. Pachycephalosaurus itself was the largest of the dome headed dinosaurs, estimated to have grown to between fifteen or perhaps twenty feet in length. It is widely accepted as being an herbivore but recent studies suggest it may have supplemented its diet with a little animal content as well.

Pachycephalosaurus (CollectA)

4.5 (8 votes)
With its wonderful knobby skull and domed cranium, Pachycephalosaurus  is one of the most distinctive dinosaurs. Paleontologists are still divided over how precisely it used its noggin, although a 2013 study by the University of Wisconsin concluded that it did indeed engage in intraspecific conflict.

As part of CollectA’s smaller scale line, this Pachycephalosaurus measures only 10 cm long and stands 6 cm tall.

Pachycephalosaurus (Definitely Dinosaurs by Playskool)

2.3 (3 votes)

Review and photographs by dinoguy2, edited by Suspsy 

Playskool’s Definitely Dinosaurs line can be broken down into two basic categories: the larger, ride-able toys that came with saddles for their “Cavester” companions, and the smaller toys with minimal accessories. Pachycephalosaurus was part of the smaller assortment, and like the others, it was pretty basic, with only four real points of articulation.
