All Acrocanthosaurus reviews

Acrocanthosaurus (2018 Version by Papo)

Review and images by ‘Resurrection of the dinosaurs,’ edited by Suspsy. I usually do not like reviewing a repaint of an original sculpt that has already been reviewed here on the blog, simply due to the fact that I am left with not much to talk about except for the new paint job. As you may …

Acrocanthosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

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 …

Acrocanthosaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

Review and photo by Tomhet, edited by Dinotoyblog. 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 …

Acrocanthosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

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. While not as large as some of …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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. But …

Acrocanthosaurus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

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 …

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 …

Acrocanthosaurus (Salvat)

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 …

Acrocanthosaurus (Terra Series by Battat)

The wait is finally over folks, and the triumphant return of Battat is underway. Late last summer we were both shocked and thrilled to learn that Battat was back with a new series of dinosaur figures sculpted by Dan LoRusso for the Terra line, exclusive to Target stores in the United States. But the excitement …

Acrocanthosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Safari are first out of the gate this year with no fewer than four new-for-2012 Wild Safari dinosaurs already available. This Acrocanthosaurus is one of them, and it’s easy to see it becoming the most popular of the bunch – not just because it’s a fearsome-looking, spectacular theropod, but also thanks to Safari capturing that …

Acrocanthosaurus Skeleton (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

While most of us prefer to collect dinosaur figures representing living animals there is something to be said about skeletal reconstructions as well. After all, we don’t really know what most dinosaurs looked like, almost everything we know about them comes from the ancient bones we’ve dug up and reassembled. Dinosaur reconstructions require a great …

Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

When it comes to tubes of miniatures, or “toobs,” Safari Ltd. remains the undisputed ruler. That said, they haven’t released any new toobs in years, and many of their prehistoric-themed ones are really showing their age. Today we’ll be examining one such example, Carnivorous Dinos, consisting of twelve miniatures representing a veritable Who’s Who of …
