Review: Saltasaurus (Replica Saurus by Schleich)

3.3 (6 votes)

In 1980 José Fernando Bonaparte discovered one of the first sauropods from Argentina, Saltasaurus. Unlike most other Argentinian dinosaurs, Saltasaurus was not discovered in the province of Chubut in the Patagonian centre of Argentina, but as its name suggests in the northwest province of Salta (travellers know the capital Salta as starting point for the colorful landscape of Jujuy).

Review: Seismosaurus (4D Puzzle by Fame Master)

3 (2 votes)
Seismosaurus is a name that a lot of younger readers may not recognize but for those of us who were dinosaur fanatics in the late 80’s and early 90’s it’s a name we remember all too well. Seismosaurus was a genus of dinosaur described in 1991, at the time it was estimated to have been the longest dinosaur ever discovered, measuring between 127-170 feet in length.

Review: 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.

Review: Seven Little Dinosaurs (China Post by PNSO)

4.1 (7 votes)

Within the unfortunately short time of its existence, Chinese company PNSO released two products in collaboration or commission for  China Post. One is their glorious Mamenchisaurus, the other is a boxed set of “Seven Little Dinosaurs”. Unlike the “Six Little Dinosaurs” the seven do not depict juvenile dinosaurs but rather adult ones, though they are indeed not big figures.

Review: Shunosaurus (Procon/CollectA)

2.5 (8 votes)

Shunosaurus Lii is a sauropod that lived during the middle Jurassic in what would now be present day China. It has some strange features for a sauropod, such as a relatively short neck, and a tail that has a club at the end. It shared an environment with longer necked sauropods and low browsing stegosaur.

Review and photos by Nathan ‘Takama’ Morris, edited by amargasaurus cazaui and Suspsy
After six years of waiting, Safari Ltd. has finally made a new sauropod for the Wild Safari Collection. Sauropods are the one thing I really wish Safari made more of, as the collection only had three of them, and they were gems among the rest of the collection.

Review: Six little dinosaurs (Tyrannosaurus, Mamenchisaurus, Amargasaurus, Ankylosaurus, Spinosaurus, Triceratops) (PNSO)

3.8 (16 votes)
Enter the PNSO! I first became aware of The Peking Natural Science-Art Organisation in March 2016, when I visited their offices and workshop in Beijing on a work-related business trip. It was with great excitement that I discovered this blossoming company has its sights set not only on literature and 2D palaeoart (my expectation going in), but also on commercially available 3D art as well: dinosaur toys.

Review: Spinophorosaurus by Bullyland (exclusively for the Staatliches Naturhistorisches Museum, Braunschweig)

2.3 (6 votes)
Spinophorosaurus nigerensis was a midsize sauropod that lived in what is now Nigeria in the middle Jurassic, about 170 million years ago. It resembled a small Brachiosaurid and belonged to a sister taxon of the Eusauropoda. It was 13 metres long. Its most famous attributes are the spines at the end of the tail.

Review: Supersaurus (Canon Papercraft)

3.7 (3 votes)

In 1972 the Dry Mesa Quarry in Colorado relvealed an enormous scapula to the paleontologist James A. Jensen. Official description took its time and was published more than a decade later in 1985. While not undisputed over time, Supersaurus is currently accepted as a sovereign diplodocid species growing to tremendous size.

Review: Tambatitanis (Soft Model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

4.4 (5 votes)
Recently a new model has been released by Favorite, formally known as Kinto, and it has caused quite a stir on the dinosaur toy scene, not only for its quality but also because it is a museum exclusive and thus already rare before it was released. So is it worth all the hype?

This toy is a monster. Is this the biggest dinosaur toy ever made? Probably not, but it’s definitely the biggest one I ever had. I still remember the first time I learned this existed. I saw the massive box, which had to be three feet long, on the bottom shelf of my local toy store, sometime back in 1988.

The second set of dinosaurs in the Z-Cardz line reveals some surprising, if questionable, choices going on in the lineup for these little collectibles.
