Pachycephalosaurus (Dinotales Series 5 by Kaiyodo)

3.8 (6 votes)
Pachycephalosaurus is the largest and most well recognized member of the dome-headed dinosaurs. It lived at the end of the Cretaceous 66-65 million years ago and therefore would have been amongst the last non-avian dinosaurs ever to be alive. It coexisted with other well known dinosaurs like Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus.

Pachycephalosaurus (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

2.4 (14 votes)
Rounding out my electronic Chap Mei toys is that scrappy (and in this case, rather scary) thick-headed lizard, Pachycephalosaurus!

This rather dubious-looking dinosaur measures 25 cm long and stands 17 cm tall when hunched over. The main colours are light brown and dark brown with beige accents, electric blue stripes, white teeth, and translucent orange for the eyes and the cranium.

Pachycephalosaurus (Jurassic Park, Series 2, by Kenner)

Following up on the Pachycephalosaurus theme started in the last blog entry, here’s a review of a quite different version of this dome-headed dinosaur. Both the review and photos are by Griffin8891
Now before we all start pelting poor Jurassic park toys with “that’s inaccurate!” and “not scientific!” let’s make one thing very clear.

Pachycephalosaurus (Jurassic World Bashers and Biters by Hasbro)

Review and photographs by Takama, edited by Suspsy
Pachycephalosaurus is common among dinosaur toys with almost every company (including the Chinasaur manufacturers) having at least one model of this species in their collection. The animal was made somewhat famous due to its appearance in The Lost World: Jurassic Park and it would later make a cameo in Jurassic World.

Pachycephalosaurus (large) (UKRD)

2.3 (4 votes)

Marginocephalia is a clade full of interesting species that are largely hard to define by their body, with their only real definition being their heads. There are two groups, the ceratopsians (for which the number of models are near innumerable) and the less popular pachycephalosaurs. There are many figures of them, though far from the numbers of their ceratopsian counter parts.

Pachycephalosaurus (Papo)

3.4 (15 votes)
Papo are much-loved for their highly detailed, Jurassic Park resemblin’ line of prehistoric creature figures; any number of them are perfect lookalikes of their movie counterparts, right down to the smallest inaccuracy. So it is too with this little marginocephalian fella, the Papo Pachycephalosaurus, perhaps one of the most overlooked members of the line.

Pachycephalosaurus (Recur)

Thanks to Recur for the review sample.
Earlier this year I filmed myself unboxing a delivery of Recur figures on Youtube. The video received a whopping 5,000 views in two months demonstrating that unboxing videos really are popular, aren’t they! Suspsy has already reviewed some of these Recur figures on the Dinotoyblog, and he has more in the pipeline, so watch this space for more.

Pachycephalosaurus (Soft Model Series 1 by Kinto Favorite)

3.9 (7 votes)
Despite the figure’s small size, there are plenty of fine details to appreciate on this release from Kinto/Favorite’s earlier days.
Favorite Co. Ltd is among the better dinosaur toy producers currently in the market, even though many of their figures are either out of production or exclusive to Japan.

Pachycephalosaurus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

3.3 (10 votes)
Time – the ever-flowing river. Come with us now to a time before Walking With Dinosaurs, when the river flowed through a world easily impressed by CGI and when Spielberg ruled the Earth. Welcome…to the Jurassic Park action figure line, circa 1997.
Fine, I dropped the ball at the end there.

Pachycephalosaurus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Hammond Collection by Mattel)

Hammond Collection Pachycephalosaurus, left side.

Finally! Roughly 6 months after acquiring it I’m getting around to reviewing the Hammond Collection Pachycephalosaurus. In this review you’ll see outdoor pictures that were taken in March, when I originally wanted to review it! They’ve been sitting on my computer, taunting me, reminding me to get around to this toy.

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

3.7 (7 votes)
Two Pachycephalosaurus toys would be released in conjunction with “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” the monstrously large adult “Ram Head” and this one, marketed as a juvenile. Seeing as how the genus features prominently in the movie it makes sense that it would feature in the toy line as well but in the case of the juvenile we’re looking at today it may seem somewhat familiar.

Pachycephalosaurus (Tsukuda Hobby Collection)

4 (7 votes)
Among the many prehistoric toys of the 1980s’ were the distinctive dinosaurs of the Tsukuda Hobby Collection. I vividly recall coming across them at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto back in 1989 (I think) when it was showcasing the then-spectacular animatronics of Dinamation. My dear mother was kind enough to buy me a couple of the toys that day.

Pachycephalosaurus (UKRD)

3 (3 votes)
Fans of the dome headed pachycephalosaurs are hard pressed to find toys representing this group with one exception, Pachycephalosaurus itself.  While not as popular as the likes of Tyrannosaurus or Triceratops this genus is unique enough to have been reproduced in plastic many times over, even by substandard companies like UKRD. 

Pachycephalosaurus (Version 1, Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

3.8 (11 votes)
Despite my lifelong love of dinosaurs, I never made make a point of acquiring Carnegie Collection figures as a child. I suppose I was far too busy acquiring Lego sets and Ninja Turtles. But when my mother returned from a business trip with the Carnegie Pachycephalosaurus as a gift, I was delighted.
