Anhanguera (2006)(Schleich)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy

It’s very easy to see where the inspiration for this model came from. While the name stamp on this figure’s wing might say “Anhanguera,” it is very clearly based on the BBC Walking With Dinosaurs series’ Ornithocheirus. Which isn’t the worst inspiration, as the two species are rather closely related.

Bendable Dinosaur Playset (Dorda)

Review and photos by Emperor Dinobot, edited by Suspsy

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!

Caiuajara (Supreme by CollectA)

4.9 (19 votes)
CollectA’s catalogue is starting to accumulate large-scale pterosaur figures, beginning in 2015 with their Guidraco. The latest installment in their Supreme pterosaur lineup is the very large, very pretty Caiuajara. Caiuajara is a solid choice for a pterosaur to make into a figure. It isn’t known from any complete, articulated specimens, but it is known from a bone bed representing scattered pieces of at least four dozen individual animals from different growth stages and of both sexes.

Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

2.9 (20 votes)
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)

CollectA Caviramus left

5 (17 votes)

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.

Cretaceous Collection (Kaiyodo Capsule Q Museum)

Review and photos by Patryx
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. It’s an intriguing concept, as Kaiyodo is revered for their up-to-date reconstructions, and Jurassic Park is, well, not.

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. Cyan blue is the main colour with dark blue markings, swamp green for the twin crests and claws, yellow eyes, white teeth, and a pink mouth.

Dimorphodon (Dinoreplicas)

4.9 (8 votes)

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)

2.6 (8 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.

Review and photos by Apatosaurus3232, edited by Suspsy
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.

Dimorphodons (REBOR)

Review and photographs by Lanthanotus, edited by Suspsy
Here comes a review I’m really excited about! Well, not about the review itself, but the models. When I first encountered REBOR while reading the Dinosaur Toy Forum, I was thrilled by the level of detail and the paint jobs on their models, but being not too keen about toothy theropods, I did not decide to buy any of them.
