Lufengosaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

Review and images by PhilSauria, edited by Suspsy

Lufengosaurus, at least as realised by the sculptors and designers at PNSO, does not embody the typical image of a sauropod. It is no towering beast with head held aloft at the end of a long neck, standing or striding along on four long pillar-like legs, though its stablemate, the massive Huanghetitan does fit that description admirably!

Lufengosaurus (CollectA)

1.7 (6 votes)

Lufengosaurus lived during the early Jurassic period and is a primitive sauropodomorph from China.  A full  osteology of Lufengosaurus was done in 1941 and was the first complete dinosaur skeleton mounted in China. Fortunately, much is known on its size and shape as there is quite a lot of known material.

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

The first fossils of the Late Triassic sauropodomorph Mussaurus were discovered in the ’70s by an expedition led by the late Jose Bonaparte in Argentina. These consisted of eggs and juveniles small enough to fit in your hands; hence the name, meaning “Mouse Lizard.” However, this name isn’t particularly fitting given that in 2013, the first adult specimens of Mussaurus were described and estimated to reach up 20 feet in length.

EU government could still not agree on aborting the change to summer time, so this very day is an hour longer and so gives me some time to wirte another review after quite a long break…..

Today we gonna take a look on a probably not very popular figure, though the species is known by anyone who ever had a look into a dinosaur book.

Plateosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

This Plateosaurus, with “1994” stamped on its tummy, is fast becoming one of the older figures in the Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd. Plateosaurus is from the Triassic of Germany and is classified as a prosauropod dinosaur, that is, a close relative of the later large long-necked sauropods.

Plateosaurus (CollectA)

Having recently reviewed the Bullyland Liliensternus, I thought it fitting to do another Triassic dinosaur that lived with and was possibly preyed upon by Liliensternus. I’m talking of course about everyone’s favorite basal sauropodomorph, Plateosaurus. This one was put out by CollectA in 2011. CollectA is known for their production of obscure species so it is no surprise that this well known Triassic dinosaur has been produced for their line.

Plateosaurus (Dinotales Series 5 by Kaiyodo)

Review and photographs by Dennis AKA Lanthanotus
When I first discovered the Dinosaur Toy Blog, I began with browsing the several dinosaur toy producing companies listed. The Kaiyodo site woke my interest, mainly because of the intriguing color schemes and accuracy of their models. I’ve never heard of the producer before, but when searching the forum I eventually found that they had made a plentiful array of prehistoric models (not to mention the Capsule Q and others).

Plateosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Greetings DinoWaurriors! I imagine it’s very easy for creators of toy lines to stick to the Jurassic and Cretaceous period dinosaurs for their line, as this is where many were at their biggest and strangest. Let’s not forget, however, that the Triassic saw the rise of these animals, and have interesting species that began this dynasty.

Plateosaurus (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

3.7 (7 votes)
The large Late Triassic dinosaur Plateosaurus was a member of the prosauropods, a group of dinosaurs that would give rise to the giants of the Late Jurassic, like Brachiosaurus and Diplodocus, 50 million years later. Plateosaurus averaged around 25 feet in length. The name means “broad lizard”, and Plateosaurus was one of the earliest dinosaurs to be discovered.
