This review hits another milestone as it is my 70th one for the blog! Deciding which figure to mark the occasion has proven competitive, but one stood out and pushed my original choice: Wilson.
For my 70th review, there was no question who the subject should be.
Before I begin I want to state the obvious. Yes, Geoworld does make some terrible figures, but when it comes to their many fossil and skeleton replicas, we can see that Geoworld has potential. The ‘Tyrant King Skeleton’ is just one of many skeletal models that Geoworld has to offer, and it can be purchased in two different forms.
The 2015 CollectA Xiongguanlong measures 10 cm long and is 6 cm tall including the raised tail. This makes it by far the smallest figure in the 2015 assortment.

I don’t own all the Xtractaurs, and I’m not sure if anyone does, but I feel I’ve been able to amass enough to give a decent overview of the series. Anyone who wants to review an individual Xtractaur for the Dinosaur Toy Blog, included in this review or otherwise, has my blessing.
When it comes to Tyrannosaurus rex, the first image that comes to mind is that of a snarling, blood-thirsty animal. As famous as it is, unfortunately in pop culture films and images, it is often depicted as a villain, a killer that is always on a rampage killing any helpless animal on its way.
So, the description of being cute is not often associated with it.

Yutyrannus is both one of my favorite theropods and favorite dinosaurs in general these days. I still remember coming across an online news article about it back in early 2012 and being excited to see that they finally found a large feathered dinosaur.
Feathered dinosaurs are truly awesome and I adore them all, whether they’re from somewhere in the Mesozoic or still alive in the present, probing for earthworms on my lawn, swimming in the pond at the park, flying high in the sky, and so on. And certain of these extant dinosaurs are, of course, quite yummy to eat, especially when they’re from Swiss Chalet or Mary Brown’s.
This is my very first review for the Dinosaur Toy Blog and I have chosen this model. The 2014 1/35 scale Yutyrannus huali is the first model created by the UK brand called REBOR. It is a very good and realistic model, and unfortunately, there are not many versions of this unique species (there is only this one, the Wild Safari, and the Kaiyodo one).
Approximately 125 million years ago, Northern China had a similar temperature to today – it was cold – at least by Mesozoic standards. Indeed, the Yixian Formation of China shows that the climate of this part of early Cretaceous China would have had an average temperature of only 10°C.
