Apatosaurus (“World Of Jura” by Goebel)

Goebel is a well-known German company that produces porcelain dolls and figures for windowsills of old, boring housewives. In 1992 they (Goebel, not the housewives…) released respectively distributed four dinosaur figures. Apatosaurus´ comrades in this line were Styracosaurus, Triceratops and Stegosaurus. Goebel green and bright green (there is not that much variety in the paintjob …

Apatosaurus (2008, Replica-saurus by Schleich)

Photos by Philsauria Size matters. Apatosaurus is the archetypical dinosaur, probably the most famous icon of palaeontology. Many companies have released it as a figure; Schleich did it for the third time now after their 1997 Apatosaurus, who was a blue, heavy, tail-dragging behemoth with a dull mien and its somewhat better baby. Schleich 2008 …

Apatosaurus (2010) (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Review and photos by Dr Andre Mursch (“Brontodocus”). Edited by Plesiosauria. Get your fore feet back down to earth, Bronto, here comes 2010’s latest release of the Wild Safari Dinos series by Safari Ltd: Apatosaurus maybe regarded the archetype of a sauropod – a highly iconic dinosaur taxon almost everybody knows today – despite the …

Apatosaurus (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

Apatosaurus has come a long way over the years. What was once a sluggish swamp-dwelling behemoth is now more tightly built, with muscular columns of legs supporting a powerful body, graceful neck, and elegant whip-like tail. As the rest of the world struggles to keep pace with the latest paleontological research, David Krentz is always …

Apatosaurus (Bullyland Micro Tiere)

By now most of you should know my preference for sometimes strange dinosaur models, alleged outsiders, often being sadly overlooked. I would like to introduce to you the Bullyland “Micro Tiere” Apatosaurus. I don´t exactly know about the release date, even Randy Knoll´s site doesn´t give any information. But it must have been somewhere in …

Apatosaurus (Bullyland)(Museum Line)

Rounding out Bullyland’s Museum-Line of prehistoric figures is the longtime favorite Apatosaurus, one of the largest figures in their entire line. Many manufacturers have – either to cut costs or respect traditions – opted for a generally plain paint scheme for large sauropods. Prior to the Carnegie Diplodocus of 2008, it seems most sauropod figures …

Apatosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

Everyone familiar with dinosaurs knows the name Apatosaurus, and those not familiar with dinosaurs probably are familiar with it but still call it Brontosaurus despite a name change over 100 years ago. I won’t bother getting into any of that as anyone reading this review most likely already knows the story. Let’s just say that …

Apatosaurus (Field Museum Mold-A-Rama)

Although I’m not old enough to have witnessed the Sinclair Motor Oil “Dinoland” exhibit at the 1964 World’s Fair this has always been an era in American history that has fascinated me. The representations of dinosaurs at that time are now heavily outdated but they stand as symbols of just how popular these animals became …

Apatosaurus (Furuta)

Review and photos by Brandon, edited by Plesiosauria. Several years ago the Japanese company Furuta created a really nice set including some of the most popular dinosaurs: Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus! These dinosaur figures were painted but unassembled and had to be snapped together. Each one came with an information …

Apatosaurus (Galaxy/Safari, 'Great Dinos' Collection)

We reviewed this figure briefly before (here) but thanks to Atomic Elephant who sent us a review sample, we can now give this hefty figure a little more attention. There are two versions with differing paint schemes, a blue design and the grey/blue design, which we present here (although it look blue in our photos because …

Apatosaurus (Invicta)

“All brontosauruses are thin at one end; much, much thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end.” – a theory by Anne Elk (Miss) The Apatosaurus (formerly known as Brontosaurus) by Invicta provides strong evidence for Miss Anne Elk’s theory; this figure is indeed much thicker in the middle, and thinner …

Apatosaurus (Jurassic World Legacy Collection, by Mattel)

It has now been two years since Mattel released their Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus, a highly anticipated toy that fans had been pining for since 1993. During much of that time between then and now people had wondered, “will we get an Apatosaurus too?” In my mind the likelihood of Mattel making an Apatosaurus was directly …

Apatosaurus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

Formerly known as Brontosaurus, Apatosaurus is perhaps one of the most famous and easily recognizable dinosaurs. Such fame and popularity guarantees its presence in many dinosaur toy lines. However, most of these figures tend to be on the larger side, and some of them are not quite accurate, with the hands often being inaccurate. The …

Apatosaurus (Monster In My Pocket by Matchbox, Series 6)

Review and photos by Funk, edited by Suspsy Monster In My Pocket was a line of small collectible figures in bright colours, all depicting monsters of some kind. The line seems to have had several series consisting of or including prehistoric animals, and the one here, the Apatosaurus, is from Series 6, which appears to …

Apatosaurus (Nanmu)

Review and images by PhilSauria, edited by Suspsy To many in the general population (for want of a better description) and particularly in popular culture, the appearance of Apatosaurus, though in these terms usually known as Brontosaurus, is almost synonymous with the word ‘dinosaur.’ So many comics, cartoons, and iconic graphics in a variety of …
