Review: Kentrosaurus (Jurassic World, Color Change Captivz by ToyMonster)

3.5 (26 votes)

With the new year comes a new set of Captivz Pop N Lock dinosaurs to collect. If you’re unfamiliar with what Captivz are, they’re blind bag figures hidden inside plastic eggs. Also included in the egg is a bag of slime (the figure is separate from the slime) and a token or trading card with the figure’s stats.

Review: Kentrosaurus (the Lost Kingdoms series C, by Yowie)

4 (3 votes)
Despite it being smaller and less grandeur in size when compared to its contemporaries Stegosaurus and TuojiangosaurusKentrosaurus’s look is snazzy enough for the major dinosaur toy brands to show it some love from time to time.  As with many of its fellow sterosaurids it had a small yet narrow skull that ended with a beak which would have been useful while sniping off plant stems and leaves.  

Review: Kentrosaurus (Tyco)

Review and photographs by Paleona
Back in the late 80’s / early 90’s, pre-Jurassic Park, the Tyco dinosaurs were among the first dinosaur action figures. Tyco first released their dinosaur toys as a Dino-Riders toy line, but the Smithsonian Institution later hired Tyco to release a museum quality line of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals under their name.

Review: Kentrosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

What’s that coming over the hill? Why, it’s the Wild Safari Kentrosaurus, new for 2010. A special mention should go out to the magnanimous and quite probably very handsome Dan Liebman, he of Dan’s Dinosaurs, who was generous enough to airmail me this little guy for a reviewing.

Review: Kentrosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria.
A small member of the stegosaur family from Tanzania, Kentrosaurus aethiopicus is often hidden in the shadow of its much larger and more famous big brother, Stegosaurus stenops. That’s not to say that other toy lines haven’t made their own versions of it; CollectA and Safari Ltd both have a Kentrosaurus for example, but they are rather small models that remain overlooked next to their well-known American cousin.

Review: Kentrosaurus(Mini, by Schleich)

3.5 (4 votes)

Schleich has changed their typical toy dinosaurs lineup over the past two years.  They have added new playsets and sizes for their prehistoric line of toys.  The mini sized dinosaurs were introduced in 2015 with eight figures.  Due to their low cost, different sculpts, and new paint jobs that differ from their bigger brethren, the minis were quite popular.

Review: Micro Tiere Collection (Bullyland)

2.9 (7 votes)
Back in 2010 our own Libraraptor reviewed a little Apatosaurus, part of Bullyland’s Micro Tiere Collection released in 2005. Having found the same little figure in an eBay lot I was very curious about this small but seemly high quality figure. A search yielded his review but further research yielded the rest of the collection and a couple years ago I was able to procure the entire line.

The Battat line of 1:40 scale dinosaurs is so famous that it needs little introduction. Rightly so, as these figures are some of the best representation of dinosaurs in toy form. In fact, even after 20+ years, the line is still is considered one of the best.

Review: Mini-Dino Multi-Pack (“Battle Damage”)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Review and photographs by Cretaceous Crab, edited by Suspsy
Let me start out by saying that this pack of figures are obviously part of the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World toy franchise, and likewise, each figure is designed to be a representation of its silver screen counterpart. We all know that many of the prehistoric species featured in this franchise are not scientifically accurate.

Review: Miragaia (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

4.1 (16 votes)
A humid spring morning finds Costa browsing placidly on succulent berries. An abrupt noise in the surrounding brush causes him to turn his head and twitch his tail sharply, but it is just a harmless dryosaur also in the midst of browsing. Reassured, Costa returns to the glade where his mate is watching over their clutch.

Review: Miragaia (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

5 (13 votes)
While most of the year’s new prehistoric collectibles have been released by summer, the heavy hitters always seem to arrive fashionably late. This sounds better than any figure being “delayed,” and besides, the wait only serves to heighten our anticipation. The first Carnegie of 2011 struck at the end of May, with the release of the exotic stegosaurid Miragaia longicollum.

Review: Miragaia (CollectA)

3.3 (20 votes)
Discovered in Portugal in 1999, Miragaia is unique for having the longest neck of any known stegosaur, with at least seventeen vertebrae. Its name refers both to the parish where it was discovered and the Latin for “beautiful earth goddess.”

The 2012 CollectA Miragaia appears to have been caught in a moment of surprise.

Review and images by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy

I, Emperor Dinobot, would like to quote, or rather, paraphrase what someone said a few months ago upon seeing pictures of Mattel’s Miragaia“This is an evil-looking figure!” I am not sure whether they were referring to the paint job or to the lack of accuracy, but I have to disagree.

Review: Miragaia (Zhong Jieming)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
Ever wondered if knockoffs such as this Papo Spinosaurus and CollectA Hylaeosaurus have a company name behind them? Well, to save you the time, that company turns out to be Zhong Jieming. After reading that, you might be wondering why I brought up Chinese knockoff figures on our beloved blog, but in all seriousness, I found the source of those knockoffs completely by accident, and I have no intentions on purchasing any of them.
