All Deinonychus reviews

Deinonychus (AAA)

Once there was a time when Theropods simply were divided into „Carnosaurs“ (the big ones such as Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus) and „Coelurosaurs“ (the smaller ones such as Coelophysis or Compsognathus). Then along came Deinonychus, an irritating new predator who did not really fit into this concept. When it was discovered in 1969, no one could …

Deinonychus (Bullyland)

Photographs by Lanthanotus, edited by Dinotoyblog Reading Horridus´ great review of the vintage Carnegie Deinonychus trio, another Deinonychus figure came into my mind. A base? Non–feathered? Dynamic, Bakker-inspired pose? Wait, yes – it’s the Bullyland Deinonychus! It is tiger–coloured and striped, 14.5 cm long and 8 cm tall, with the typical Bullyland approach that can …

Deinonychus (Carnage Dinosaurs by ReSaurus/Toysmith)

Review and photos by Dino Scream3232 (formerly Apatosaurus3232), edited by Suspsy Well, this review is long overdue. Suspsy asked me awhile back to do one for the Carnage Collection Deinonychus after I shared some pics of it on my collection page. So it’s with great honor that I complete the Resaurus Carnage Collection review page.  …

Deinonychus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

Now here’s a figure I know some of you will recognise from your childhood – the Carnegie Deinonychus trio. Remember your childhood? Those halcyon, carefree days that were spent frolicking through flowery fields and dawbing awful dinosaurs using wax crayons? Well, those days are gone – GONE – and you can’t have them back. Ever. …

Deinonychus (Definitely Dinosaurs by Playskool)

Review and photos by dinoguy2, edited by Suspsy Deinonychus was hot in the 80s’ – a relatively new, small, fast, vicious theropod that was beginning to catch kids’ attention in books and TV specials, and therefore made an obvious choice when it came time to fill in the small dinosaur slots in a toy line. …

Deinonychus (Kabaya)

Review and photographs by Brandon. Edited by Plesiosauria. In Japan, many figure companies are quite exciting due to their sculpting and selection of lines. For a good example take Bandai’s Godzilla Complete Works, Konami’s Gamera, Kaiyodo’s Dinotales to mention a few and if you know these lines and their respected makers then you know the …

Deinonychus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3)

Ever since a certain motion picture was released in the early 90’s, dromaeosaurs have been ingrained into popular culture. Commonly referred to as raptors (much to the dismay of ornithologists), most people see them as swift killing machines that could hunt down anything using their vicious sickle claws. What most people don’t know is that …

Deinonychus (Paleo-Creatures by Jesus Toledo)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Back in 2014, I was looking for a second person to help me out in creating figurines of my own, and I eventually found out about Dinotoyforum member Jesus Toledo AKA Jetoar’s creations. So I thought I would commission him to do a one of a kind …

Deinonychus (Soft model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

In spite of not having a name ending in ‘raptor’, Deinonychus remains a high-profile dromaeosaur in the public imagination, and rightly so for an animal that revolutionised our understanding of dinosaurs. This fairly small and affordable toy is manufactured by Favorite, and is clearly modelled on their larger (and somewhat more expensive) resin ‘Desktop’ model. …

Deinonychus (Tyco)

If your average person were hard pressed to name every dinosaur that came to mind we all know the names that would crop up; Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and since 1993…Velociraptor. I can’t think of many genera that achieved so much fame so fast, at least not since the so called golden age of paleontology in …

Deinonychus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Review and photos by Patrx, edited by Suspsy Deinonychus is kind of a big deal. Its inescapably bird-like skeleton is part of what led paleontologists of the early 1970s to re-examine old ideas about the origin of birds, and the nature of dinosaurs as a group. Everything from dinosaur metabolism to their family dynamics and …

Deinonychus and Tenontosaurus (Cerberus Clan and Ceryneian Hind by Rebor)

Review and photos by Apatosaurus3232, edited by Suspsy It’s been awhile since a Rebor product was reviewed on the blog. So this will be a two-part review of the Ceryneian Hind (Tenontosaurus tilletti) and Cerberus Clan (Deinonychus antirrhopus). These are parts 2 and 3 to the Acrocanthosaurus model that completes the diorama. First up is …

Deinonychus and Velociraptors (Playmobil)

The Velociraptor pack has come across an unguarded nest of eggs. But a hungry Deinonychus has also found the nest, and he’s not in the mood to share! The Playmobil Deinonychus is a small figure, standing only up to 9 cm tall and measuring 14 cm long. That said, it is probably the scariest-looking dinosaur …

Deinonychus Hatchling (Johan Scherft)

Review and photos by Lanthanotus, edited by Suspsy Following my review about the Styracosaurus hatched from a chocolate surprise egg, I’ll introduce you to a “real” hatchling in this review, just the right thing to put some Mesozoic spice to your upcoming Easter celebrations–the model of hatching Deinonychus by talented Netherlands artist Johan Scherft. Now, …

Feathered Dinosaurs Premium Box by Colorata

This year has seen toy companies embrace feathered dinosaurs like never before, if not always with perfect execution. Accuracy stalwarts like Safari Ltd and especially Kaiyodo have been giving us feathered dinosaurs for years, but now even Papo and Schleich are getting on the plumage train. Another late convert is Japanese company Colorata. Colorata, named …
