Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

3.5 (11 votes)
Safari’s very first prehistory toob is charming, but largely showing its age in the details and aesthetics of the figurines.
Toobs might be the unsung heroes of Safari Ltd.’s toy lines. I see them wherever Safari products are sold, even when their larger, standard-sized kin are absent.

Review and photos by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs.’, edited by Suspsy
Today, we will be taking a look at Papo’s first tub of miniature dinosaurs, which contains Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, and Velociraptor. The second tub contains Carnotaurus, Allosaurus, Pteranodon, Dimetrodon, Ankylosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Papo has not yet released a bigger version of Giganotosaurus, although there are still high hopes for it.

Review and photos by Rebecca O’Neill, edited by Dinotoyblog.

This group of ten novelty, cartoonish dinosaurs were purchased on Ebay in 2018, and don’t seem to be available anymore. Very much in the style of The Land Before Time or Dinosaurs the television show from the 1990s, they are a variety of well known dinosaurs rendered in a caricature form.

Dinosaurs (Tim Mee Toys by J. Lloyd International Inc.)

Back in 2012 a representative from the toy vendor VictoryBuy joined the Dinosaur Toy forum looking for member feedback with regards to reissuing the Tim Mee set of toy dinosaurs, originally produced in the 1970’s. Flashforward to 2014 and VictoryBuy once again stopped by the forum, this time to announce the actual release of the set.

Dinosaurs II (Authentics Habitat Collection by Safari ltd.)

4.4 (10 votes)

This fine set of little Battat precursors from Gregory Wenzel has aged impressively well, and any collector who’s found a chance to own the set should find these a delight.

Back in the 1990s, Safari ltd. was still a bold newcomer on the collectibles stage; with their success on the Carnegie Collection line, the company began exploring additional means to grow their brand.

Edaphosaurus (Bullyland)

This figure is not a dinosaur but a very felicitous reconstruction of a plant-eating pelycosaur from the Lower Permian Period. Once again, Bullyland have proved that they are able to create realistic and authentic figures of extinct animals.

I said felicitous because the Bullyland Edaphosaurus is very authentic in many aspects.

Edaphosaurus (CollectA Deluxe 1:20)

The long wait has ended,… 12 years it’s been since the Bullyland Edaphosaurus was discontinued and despite its renown toy companies all over the planet refrain from producing figures of that enigmatic permian synapsid. It may be because of the overwhelming popularity and superficial similarity of its kin Dimetrodon, which in contrast is often repeated by all the companies.

Edaphosaurus (Fèves)

5 (4 votes)

Over eight (!) years after reviewing Bullyland Edaphosaurus here, which was my very first review, I´d like to do a review my second Edaphosaurus now, the one, well, “by”, Féves.
Fèves is no company but the term for tiny little figurines made from ceramic / porcelain. It´s a collector´s world on its own, extending over hundreds of different subject areas such as birds, dwarf, movie heroes and so on.

Edaphosaurus (Nature World by Boley)

2.2 (9 votes)
Discovered by the legendary paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope during the famous Bone Wars of the late 1800s’, Edaphosaurus was the herbivorous counterpart to Dimetrodon during the Early Permian. It can easily be distinguished from its deadly cousin by a much smaller head, a wider gut, and an array of supporting crossbars on its fin.

Review and photographs by Tim Sosa
From July-October 2015, the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo hosted an exhibit called “Leaps in Evolution: Tracing the Path of Vertebrate Evolution.” To commemorate the exhibit, Kaiyodo made a set of five vending machine capsule figures, most representing a stage in the evolution of vertebrates.

Set of Dinosaurs by Linde

Right to begin with, yes, three figures by Linde are already thoroughly represented on this blog, the Tyrannosaurus, Sphenacodon and Dimetrodon. But for the sake of completeness I include those three in this review aswell.

“Linde” is a brand name for a coffee surrogate produced from grain and chicory.

Here we have the Linde Sphenacodon. In May 2009, Tomhet wrote an excellent recension of Marx´ classic Sphenacodon, also writing that “the two others were almost impossible to find”. Well, almost. Austrian company Linde added plastic toys to their coffee packages.
