3D Dinosaur Pictorial Book (The Access)

3.6 (40 votes)

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.

Abelisaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

3.8 (16 votes)

Abelisaurus, which joins the distinguished likes of Ankylosaurus, Ichthyosaurus, Mosasaurus, Plesiosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus rex in having an entire group of animals named after it, is presently known from only an incomplete skull. But based on what we have learned about other abelisaurs such as Rajasaurus, Majungasaurus, and, of course, Carnotaurus, we have a reasonably good idea of what Abelisaurus looked like: a stocky brute with a boxy head, muscle-bound legs, and itsy-bitsy arms.

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy

With only two weeks left for the Beasts of the Mesozoic ceratopsian series campaign (as of this writing), it’s about time I got to writing perhaps the last of my reviews of these figures. either until I acquire more of the raptors or until I can get my hands on the ceratopsians.

Acrocanthosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

5 (5 votes)
As more species slip into mainstream consciousness, the ever-popular theropoda sees its previously obscure members slowly becoming household names. Nowhere is this more evident than Acrocanthosaurus atokensis, which has quickly soared to the popularity levels of Dilophosaurus and Spinosaurus. Alright, maybe ol’ Acro isn’t quite that popular – those two examples did have the dubious backing of Hollywood, after all.

The Battat Acrocanthosaurus is almost impossible to find nowadays. But there’s a good reason for that: it’s a beautiful replica that puts to shame almost any other version. Chronologically speaking, the Acrocanthosaurus is an appropiate choice for Battat. In 1996, the first reconstructed skeleton of this early Cretaceous theropod (known as ‘Fran’) was unveiled.

Acrocanthosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

3.1 (25 votes)
With the 2012 release of the highly anticipated Wild Safari Acrocanthosaurus, I thought it only fitting to do a review on the older Carnegie model, which I have only just recently been able to obtain. Acrocanthosaurus was an early Cretaceous relative of theropods such as Carcharodontosaurus and Giganotosaurus.

Acrocanthosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Plesiosauria
A lot of new figures have come out in 2017 [vote for your favourites here – Ed], but perhaps none have become more controversial than the Acrocanthosaurus that Schleich have created for their ‘Conquering the Earth’ dinosaurs collection. Sure, other Schleich models made for this year (like the Allosaurus) have their issues, but this one seems to bear the brunt of the scrutiny when it comes to the reception from dinosaur toy critics.

Acrocanthosaurus (Deluxe Prehistoric Collection by CollectA)

This has been a good year for fans of the early Cretaceous allosauroid, Acrocanthosaurus. Battat re-released their classic model, Rebor is getting in on the action with their own representation and CollectA has come out with their deluxe version of the theropod. Critics of the CollectA model point out that it looks awfully similar to last year’s Carcharadontosaurus.

Acrocanthosaurus (FameMaster)

Review by “DinoLord”
Acrocanthosaurus was a theropod that lived in the Early Cretaceous, in what is now Texas and Oklahoma. Its most distinctive feature is the tall neural spines that run down its back. These most likely supported large muscles, like in present day bison. Of the few Acrocanthosaurus figures out there, the FameMaster version is one of the better ones.

Acrocanthosaurus (Hercules by Rebor)

Review by Galen “Shadowknight1” Hesson and photography by tyrantqueen
When most people think of large predatory dinosaurs from North America in the Cretaceous period, they usually think of Tyrannosaurus rex. Fair enough. He’s big, he’s mean, and he’s been well known for a long time, allowing many different models to be made of him.

Acrocanthosaurus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

4.3 (12 votes)
Acrocanthosaurus, in my opinion, is one of the coolest theropods ever. Many companies have tried and failed at creating a replica of this peculiar dinosaur, so it’s nice to see a respectable replica of one. This review will be focusing on kaiyodos attempt.

As for Acrocanthosaurus itself, it lived in the early Cretaceous of North America, alongside some other well-known dinosaurs like Deinonychus, Utahraptor, and Tenontosaurus.

Acrocanthosaurus (Papo)

Review and photographs by Rajvinder “IrritatorRaji” Phull, edited by Suspsy
Like diamonds to a woman, Papo is a dinosaur lover’s best friend. While they tend to fall short in terms of scientific accuracy, their models are renowned for being packed to the brim with detail. Their offerings are pleasing to look at, even if it’s a slightly less enjoyable viewing experience for a trained eye.

Acrocanthosaurus (PNSO)

4.5 (52 votes)

Acrocanthosaurus? Chances are, if you are a dinosaur fan, you may be familiar with this predator and even be a big fan of it. But step out of the paleontology world and into the mainstream, many would not know what Acrocanthosaurus is. For a large and very unique looking dinosaur, it is a bit surprising that it hasn’t reach the same name recognition  as some more generic looking theropods like say Allosaurus .

Review by Patrick Padilha
As you may know, it’s not easy to choose a figure to review when you have a small collection and most of the figures you do have were already inspected by one of the expert collectors of DTB. I was wondering which item of my collection I could review and I did spot the perfect figures for my reviews.
