Review: Amargasaurus (Terra Series by Battat)

4.4 (14 votes)
If one were to compile a top ten list of unusual sauropods, Amargasaurus would have to be on it. At only 9 or 10 metres in length, it was a far cry from colossal relatives like Argentinosaurus and Dreadnoughtus. Moreover, it had two parallel rows of spines running down the length of its neck and back.

Who says that being odd is not a ticket to fame? In a world so obsessed with physical appearance, it is the first thing that the audience will notice and judge, and usually, it will be the one thing that will linger long afterwards.

Review and images by bmathison1972; edited by Suspsy

Ampelosaurus atacis is a titanosaur described in 1995 from fossils from the Late Cretaceous (Early Maastrichtian) of present day France. Interestingly, in 2012 morphometric studies of titanosaur fossils from the area showed the presence of a second, currently undescribed species of titanosaur, bringing into question historic reconstructions of the animal (a little more on that later in the review).

Review: Ampelosaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

Ampelosaurus was a relatively small sauropod that lived in Europe during the Late Cretaceous. To protect itself against predators, this titanosaur’s back was covered in an impressive array of armoured osteoderms.

Meet Lans, the little Ampelosaurus from PNSO. He measures about 9.5 cm long, although he’d be longer if his tail were held out straight behind him instead of curling fluidly to the left.

Review: Ampelosaurus (CollectA)

4.3 (26 votes)
Among prehistoric collectible enthusiasts, the company currently known as CollectA has a considerable reputation to cope with. Their figures, although competitively priced, have ranged anywhere from decent to embarrassing over the past few years. Fortunately, their lineup for 2011 kicks off with a batch of fresh faces that have clearly been more carefully constructed than their predecessors.

Confession time. I like ugly sauropods. In fact, my favorite sauropod is widely regarded as one of the ugliest, Camarasaurus. And I’m one of the few collectors that likes the Schleich Barapasaurus, which I reviewed for the blog upon its release.

Review: Apatosaurus (“World Of Jura” by Goebel)

3 (5 votes)

Goebel is a well-known German company that produces porcelain dolls and figures for windowsills of old, boring housewives. In 1992 they (Goebel, not the housewives…) released respectively distributed four dinosaur figures. Apatosaurus´ comrades in this line were Styracosaurus, Triceratops and Stegosaurus.

Goebel green and bright green (there is not that much variety in the paintjob of both the base and the animal) “World Of Jura” Apatosaurus is a special figure in many ways.

Size matters. Apatosaurus is the archetypical dinosaur, probably the most famous icon of palaeontology. Many companies have released it as a figure; Schleich did it for the third time now after their 1997 Apatosaurus, who was a blue, heavy, tail-dragging behemoth with a dull mien and its somewhat better baby.

Get your fore feet back down to earth, Bronto, here comes 2010’s latest release of the Wild Safari Dinos series by Safari Ltd:

Apatosaurus maybe regarded the archetype of a sauropod – a highly iconic dinosaur taxon almost everybody knows today – despite the long taxonomic confusion caused by its popular junior synonym Brontosaurus coined by the same author, O.C.

Apatosaurus has come a long way over the years. What was once a sluggish swamp-dwelling behemoth is now more tightly built, with muscular columns of legs supporting a powerful body, graceful neck, and elegant whip-like tail. As the rest of the world struggles to keep pace with the latest paleontological research, David Krentz is always perched on the cutting edge.

By now most of you should know my preference for sometimes strange dinosaur models, alleged outsiders, often being sadly overlooked.
I would like to introduce to you the Bullyland “Micro Tiere” Apatosaurus. I don´t exactly know about the release date, even Randy Knoll´s site doesn´t give any information.

Review: Apatosaurus (Bullyland)(Museum Line)

4 (8 votes)
Rounding out Bullyland’s Museum-Line of prehistoric figures is the longtime favorite Apatosaurus, one of the largest figures in their entire line. Many manufacturers have – either to cut costs or respect traditions – opted for a generally plain paint scheme for large sauropods. Prior to the Carnegie Diplodocus of 2008, it seems most sauropod figures have neutral tones and rarely any showy patterns.

Everyone familiar with dinosaurs knows the name Apatosaurus, and those not familiar with dinosaurs probably are familiar with it but still call it Brontosaurus despite a name change over 100 years ago. I won’t bother getting into any of that as anyone reading this review most likely already knows the story.

Review: Apatosaurus (Field Museum Mold-A-Rama)

Although I’m not old enough to have witnessed the Sinclair Motor Oil “Dinoland” exhibit at the 1964 World’s Fair this has always been an era in American history that has fascinated me. The representations of dinosaurs at that time are now heavily outdated but they stand as symbols of just how popular these animals became in the wake of their discovery.

Review: Apatosaurus (Furuta)

Review and photos by Brandon, edited by Plesiosauria.
Several years ago the Japanese company Furuta created a really nice set including some of the most popular dinosaurs: Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus! These dinosaur figures were painted but unassembled and had to be snapped together.
