All Ceratosaurus reviews

Ceratosaurus (AAA)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy A long time ago in the year 2005, I was hospitalized for 103 days due to a serious heart condition that nearly claimed my life at the young age of twelve. As a result of this issue, I was eligible for a wish to be granted by …

Ceratosaurus (Battat)

With its distinctive nasal horn and osteoderms, Ceratosaurus is certainly one of the more well-known theropods, making appearances in such films and documentaries as Fantasia, Jurassic Park III, and Jurassic Fight Club. Yet for a dinosaur with such great media exposure, this species does not appear very much in toy form, with figures from Kaiyodo and Safari being the …

Ceratosaurus (Deluxe by CollectA)

Review and photos by James Burnside, edited by Suspsy When CollectA announced its line of deluxe figures for 2018, the Ceratosaurus jumped out as a must-buy for me for a variety of reasons, not the least of which being that it is a dinosaur species I am very fond of. This is partly because, despite …

Ceratosaurus (Dinotales Series 4, by Kaiyodo)

Review and Photos by Dr Andre Mursch (“Brontodocus”). Edited by Plesiosauria. Although it was rather uncommon and a good deal smaller than contemporaneous Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus nasicornis is arguably one of the most famous theropod dinosaurs. At its time it was a rather primitive theropod with a four-fingered hand, a deep and heavy tail and a …

Ceratosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Once again, I am going to dive into the world of blind bag dinosaur figures, this time with a Theropod from the Jurassic of the Morrison Formation: Ceratosaurus. This meat eater was famed for its distinctive nasal horn, which gave images of battling the other Theropods (and indeed, other Ceratosaurs), though is now considered to …

Ceratosaurus (Hammond Collection by Mattel)

Gripe all you want about Jurassic Park 3 but we must give credit where credit is due. The movie featured a diverse assortment of dinosaurs with arguably the best color schemes in the franchise. Gone were the dull grays and browns of the first two films, JP3 went wild like a kid with a coloring …

Ceratosaurus (I-Toy)

Review and photos by Paul Carter AKA Carnosaur, edited by Suspsy I-Toy is a fairly new toy and model maker from China. They have been getting the attention of dinosaur collectors lately with their new Resurrection series. This new Ceratosaurus is the second figure they released, the first being a Jurassic Park-styled Velociraptor. While the …

Ceratosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Ah, Jurassic Park, what it is, what it was, and what it shall be. In its fourth instalment, Jurassic World (weather you liked it or not) brought forth that warm and fuzzy inner child that beats deep inside each of us. I think many of us wanted to feel the same way about the toys …

Ceratosaurus (original version)(Wild Safari by, Safari Ltd.)

With a long wiggly tail, nasal horn, preorbital horns, bony scutes along the back, and large blade like teeth, Ceratosaurus was a spectacular animal.  This medieval dragon was not the biggest predator during the late Jurassic epoch, but with jaws designed for slicing, it was an active predator that struck fear into the Jurassic herbivores. …

Ceratosaurus (Papo)

Review and photos by Rajvinder “IrritatorRaji” Phull With its spike in popularity over the years, and with much help from well known franchises such as Jurassic Park, the Ceratosaurus is starting to appeal more to mainstream audiences, especially as more and more toy companies begin to release their takes on this fascinating animal. It was …

Ceratosaurus (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

The famous Jurassic predator Allosaurus coexisted with its smaller, though likely equally fearsome relative Ceratosaurus during the Late Jurassic. Fossils of Ceratosaurus (“horned lizard”) have been recovered from numerous localities in North America, Africa, and Southern Europe. Unfortunately, this figure by Schleich is far more unimpressive than the real animal. Strap yourselves in ladies and …

Ceratosaurus (Roarivores)(Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by Mattel)

Ceratosaurus was certainly not the biggest or the most dangerous theropod of Late Jurassic North America, but thanks to its prominent nasal horn, it was probably the most distinctive. As a result, it is rather popular among dinosaur fans; renowned paleontologist Robert Bakker has declared it to have been his favourite since 1958. A Ceratosaurus …

Ceratosaurus (Scientific Art Sculpture by PNSO)

Review and photos by Dino Scream3232, edited by Suspsy Well, here we are in mid-February 2019 and we have much to be grateful for (dinosaur model-wise). PNSO is back in a big way and I do mean big. After almost a year of no communication and the feeling of dread among the community that PNSO …

Ceratosaurus (Sideshow Dinosauria)

Given how frequently Ceratosaurus shows up in pop culture, it is a little surprising that so few people can identify it. Certainly, one cannot fault it for lack of a catchy name, which makes it sound like a walking nightmare composed of dripping gore and massive steak knives. Indeed, its horny visage must have inspired …

Ceratosaurus (Terra Series by Battat)

The Battat dinosaurs’ triumphant return to mass-production means that figures once unobtainable for the average collector with bills to pay and no time machine are now easily had by anyone with so much as a few spare dollars. The Ceratosaurus is no exception. Once one of the scarcest Battats, only rarely listed on eBay for exorbitant prices unbecoming of …
