Hello everyone! Welcome to yet another EmperorDinobot(TM) dinosaur review! Today we are going to give a look at these quirky bendable dinosaurs from Dorda! Made in 1987 (I think I would have to lift up their skirts to make sure it was ’87 or ’88), these dinosaurs look a wee bit like the Playskool Definitely Dinosaur figures from the late 80s, but definitely have their own aesthetic and gimmick in order to keep kids and strange adult dinosaur toy collectors entertained for hours!

Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

When it comes to tubes of miniatures, or “toobs,” Safari Ltd. remains the undisputed ruler. That said, they haven’t released any new toobs in years, and many of their prehistoric-themed ones are really showing their age. Today we’ll be examining one such example, Carnivorous Dinos, consisting of twelve miniatures representing a veritable Who’s Who of Mesozoic (and one Paleozoic) Meanies.

Caviramus (Deluxe by CollectA)

At this point I think it’s fair to say that a new large-format pterosaur is among the highlights of CollectA’s new figure announcements. They don’t quite come every year, but they do seem to be coming more frequently. This year’s choice was one of the earliest pterosaurs, the peculiar Caviramus schesaplanensis from the Rhaetian (Late Triassic) of what would become Eurasia. 

The first specimen of Caviramus was only a broken lower jaw which showed evidence of heavy teeth and an unusually low joint.

Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Mosasaurus, and Pteranodon. What a familiar lineup! This is a set decidedly influenced by the hype surrounding the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, consisting of five iconic creatures from all over the Cretaceous.

Dearc (Deluxe by CollectA)

4.4 (54 votes)

Discovered in the Lealt Shale Formation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland in 2017, Dearc sgiathanach (pronounced ‘jark ski-a-naw-ka’) was a Middle Jurassic rhamphorhynchine pterosaur, and quite a large one at that. Its precise size is uncertain, but the estimated wingspan is between 1.9 and 3.8 metres, which makes it the largest known aligerous animal of its time as well as one of the largest known rhamphorhynchids.

Dilophosaurus with Pteranodon (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

1.9 (12 votes)
For my fifth and final Hero Mashers review, I’ll be looking at two very familiar faces from the JP franchise: Dilophosaurus and Pteranodon.

The Dilophosaurus is made up of twelve pieces. Once assembled, the carnivore measures about 24 cm long.

Dimorphodon (Dinoreplicas)

Papercrafts are not the usual type of collectible models, nevertheless there`s quite a number of models out there made from that versatile but often underestimated material. A few already have reviews here on the blog and it`s about time for a new one.

Forum member Dinoreplicas recently provided a free template to make your own Dimorphodon.

Dimorphodon (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

1.4 (10 votes)
Surely enough as the seasons change, and time goes by, toys will be forgotten. Such is the case with this one, a 3 year old toy that I got second-hand in a lot of dinosaurs primarily purchased not as a collector, but as a father. So now I have a Jurassic World Hasbro toy, something I never  actually wanted.

Dimorphodon (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack by Mattel)

2.9 (11 votes)
The Attack Pack Dimorphodon represents one of the smaller scale animals produced for the Jurassic World line, with a low price point of about $7.99.  From foot to shoulder it only stands about 1 1/4 inches. The wingspan measures 8.5” and it’s about 5” long from nose to tail.

In 2017, Papo released their largest assortment of prehistoric figures to date, from stellar sculpts like the Acrocanthosaurus and Ceratosaurus to mixed bags like the Polacanthus. Today I’ll be reviewing the Dimorphodon, which falls into the mixed bag category.

Dimorphodon (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

3.9 (12 votes)
Dimorphodon is one of those classic pterosaurs that old thirtysomethings like myself grew up reading about in the 1980s. With a large, blocky head, stout body, and relatively short wings, it would not have been the most skillful of flyers. Instead, it probably took to the air only for brief periods in order to find food or escape predators.
