Japan has a prolific industry for collectibles and merchandise, although it is a fairly insular market that western collectors might find tricky to break into. There are always new surprises to uncover from riches of new releases each year. One such item which caught my attention in 2022 was a set of minifigures produced by The Access, a company dedicated to planning, manufacturing, and wholesaling a variety of in-house products for multiple age ranges.

To me, Baryonyx is the quintessential British dinosaur. Perhaps a more classic taxon like Iguanodon or Megalosaurus really deserves the top spot, but there’s something about Baryonyx that stands out in my mind as inescapably British, and I think this is very likely to do with the fact that, for a long time, the best Baryonyx toy available was the classic monochrome rendition produced by Invicta Plastics for the British Museum.
It’s been a long and frustrating morning for Burton. It began with him failing to catch a pterosaur sitting on its nest. Next he snagged a large shark only for it to bite him painfully on the snout and escape. After that, he managed to come across a fresh nodosaur carcass, but was then chased away by an allosaur pack—and received another bite on his tail to boot!

One of the most famous dinosaurs from Europe, Baryonyx ( Baryonyx walkeri), has seen its fame continues to rise through the decades, and will continue no doubt. It even made an appearance in the hugely successful Jurassic park franchise, a testament to its fame.

Over the last few years, and probably earlier, there have been multiple versions of the same species across the annual releases by the various brands. This year (well, mostly 2018), that dubious honour has gone to Baryonyx, being the recipient of figures from Favorite, Mattel, Mojo, and CollectA.
If you are deeply into dinosaurs, then you should already know what Baryonyx is. For those who happen to be average lay people or new to the hobby, Baryonyx was a large fish-eating theropod that lived during the Early Cretaceous in what is now England.

Hello, everybody and welcome to another review by yours truly. Today we’re going to be talking about the legendary (and ugly) Series 2 Jurassic Park Baryonyx, nicknamed “Snapper” by InGen staff. We’re going to be looking over its colors, playability, and whether it warrants the high price it often goes for, so let’s just get into it!
Before we get on with the review, let’s all have a moment of silence for the now extinct Amber Collection. Honestly, I always had my reservations about the Amber Collection and never bothered to get invested in it. I always thought that Mattel should stick with the 3.75” line, and that it was unlikely that anything larger than a Velociraptor would ever be seen in a 6” line.
Baryonyx walkeri is a well known dinosaur in this community so I don’t think it needs an introduction. When it comes to replicas there are more than enough to choose from. However, all of these toys differ in quality, with the best ones either being hard to obtain, or simply out of date.
