Review: Apatosaurus (Galaxy/Safari, 'Great Dinos' Collection)

3.5 (17 votes)
We reviewed this figure briefly before (here) but thanks to Atomic Elephant who sent us a review sample, we can now give this hefty figure a little more attention. There are two versions with differing paint schemes, a blue design and the grey/blue design, which we present here (although it look blue in our photos because of the lighting!).

“All brontosauruses are thin at one end; much, much thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end.” – a theory by Anne Elk (Miss)
The Apatosaurus (formerly known as Brontosaurus) by Invicta provides strong evidence for Miss Anne Elk’s theory; this figure is indeed much thicker in the middle, and thinner at both ends.

Review: Apatosaurus (Jurassic World Legacy Collection, by Mattel)

It has now been two years since Mattel released their Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus, a highly anticipated toy that fans had been pining for since 1993. During much of that time between then and now people had wondered, “will we get an Apatosaurus too?

Review: Apatosaurus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

4.8 (9 votes)
Formerly known as Brontosaurus, Apatosaurus is perhaps one of the most famous and easily recognizable dinosaurs. Such fame and popularity guarantees its presence in many dinosaur toy lines. However, most of these figures tend to be on the larger side, and some of them are not quite accurate, with the hands often being inaccurate.

Review: Apatosaurus (Monster In My Pocket by Matchbox, Series 6)

Review and photos by Funk, edited by Suspsy

Monster In My Pocket was a line of small collectible figures in bright colours, all depicting monsters of some kind. The line seems to have had several series consisting of or including prehistoric animals, and the one here, the Apatosaurus, is from Series 6, which appears to have been released in 1993, during the “Dinomania” craze that followed in Jurassic Park‘s wake.

Review and images by PhilSauria, edited by Suspsy

To many in the general population (for want of a better description) and particularly in popular culture, the appearance of Apatosaurus, though in these terms usually known as Brontosaurus, is almost synonymous with the word ‘dinosaur.’ So many comics, cartoons, and iconic graphics in a variety of applications need only to use a silhouette of this animal to signify dinosaurs, no caption needed.

Review: Apatosaurus (Papo)

4.2 (19 votes)
Apatosaurus, with its great size, great neck, and even greater tail, is the quintessential sauropod. Along with Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex, it is one of those iconic dinosaurs that everyone recognizes instantly. Although it was long thought to have been the same animal as Brontosaurus, a 2015 study has concluded that the two were in fact separate genera.

Review by Dan, Photos by Robban, Neehar, Blade-of-the-Moon, and Jeremy K.
Sideshow offered a first glimpse of the Apatosaurus maquette in September 2010. No fewer than eleven months later, it has finally been released. It is the second, and final Dinosauria statue to be offered in 2011.

Review: Apatosaurus (Soft model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

4.5 (6 votes)
As promised, we present today the second of the sauropods in Favorite’s ‘soft model’ collection – Apatosaurus, a real dinosaur toy staple. (For more Apatosaurus, see here (Schleich Replica-Saurus), here (the old Wild Safari), here (Great Dinos Collection) and here (Invicta).) Insert a line about “Brontosaurus” here as is obligatory.

Review: Apatosaurus (UKRD)

2.8 (5 votes)
The mysterious early 1990s UKRD dinosaurs, then. Although clearly cheapo Chinasaurs, they were somehow a cut above – some people have referred to them as ‘semi-serious‘ while others have described them as ‘sub-museum‘. Good descriptions both, I think. Although clearly meant to be played with by children and with no pretentions to being a ‘museum-endorsed’ line whatsoever, they generally at least resembled the animal in question, even if in a slightly outdated fashion.

Review and photos by Marc Vincent aka Horridus
Since Safari are soon to replace their classic sculpt of this most well-known of sauropods, it seems only fitting to take a closer look at this ‘retired’ figure before it disappears into bargain bins and onto eBay for the next several years.

Review: Apatosaurus baby (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

4.4 (10 votes)

Apatosaurus was a large, robust, long-necked, small headed sauropod that lived 152-151 million years ago. When the Safari Carnegie line began in 1989 the adult and baby were part of the original line up, and has been part of the collection until the cancellation of the line in 2015.

The name Brontosaurus is one of the classic and most famous dinosaur names in the world. For many, the name Brontosaur is synonymous with sauropods in general.
