All Dilophosaurus reviews

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 …

Dilophosaurus (2020)(Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

This isn’t the first time a dinosaur toy has been rendered obsolete shortly out of the gate, but it’s still an overall solid figure of the genus.

Dilophosaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

Before I begin my review of this figure, I would like to confess something. I’m a bit terrified writing this. It took me a fair bit of effort to work up the gumption to write for this blog to begin with, but now I’m trying to tackle a dinosaur toy heavyweight… one of the legendary …

Dilophosaurus (CollectA)

Review and photos by Nathan Morris (‘Takama’) It’s a well-known fact that CollectA’s prehistoric animal figures vary in quality. Some of them are good and incorporate current palaeontological knowledge, while others are poorly sculpted and sacrifice accuracy. The subject of today’s review belongs to the latter group, but to be fair, the toy was released …

Dilophosaurus (Deluxe by CollectA)

Thanks to its appearance in Jurassic Park, Dilophosaurus is, in the words of one paleontologist, “pretty much the best, worst-known dinosaur.” Even if you’re well aware that it wasn’t small and didn’t spit venom and didn’t have a frill around its neck, you probably grew up reading about how fragile its twin crests were and …

Dilophosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Greetings DinoWaurriors! While being a great medium to introduce the masses to dinosaurs, films can have an awful effect on people by presenting inaccuracies and people drinking them in as fact. Such is the case with Dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park. In the film, it was presented as a small predator, venom spitting with a frill, …

Dilophosaurus (Electronic Deluxe)(Terra Series by Battat)

It was a truly sad day for the entire dinosaur toy community when Battat Terra sculptor Dan LoRusso passed away in 2015. He was immensely talented, meticulous in his research, and most importantly of all, friendly and kind. At the time of his death, he had begun working on sculpts of Majungasaurus, Plateosaurus, and Yutyrannus …

Dilophosaurus (Jasman)

Next up on the Jasman list is the 2001 Dilophosaurus, after this we’ll have one more review and then the torture will be over. I must admit, I’ve grown weary of writing about these toys and this one is going to be a slog. The Jasman Dilophosaurus is not the worst in the line, that …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park 2009 toyline by Hasbro)

Review by forumite Fooman666 (edited by Horridus) Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs have had a profound impact on how the general public sees dinosaurs – to people who don’t know any better the subject of this review will always be their loveable little ‘spitter’. First things first – WOW! The Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus has always had a …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park by Dakin)

Just under a year ago I came to the Dinosaur Toy Forum inquiring about a small Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus figure, an almost forgotten memory of my childhood. I didn’t know who manufactured it or where to find one but with the help of other forum members I quickly learned about the figure in question. Just recently …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic Park by Kenner)

More Jurasic Park I’m afraid – although here we have a figure of an animal actually featured in the franchise. Dilophosaurus was last seen giving Wayne Knight a good seeing-to in the first movie, but proved so memorable that Hasbro were still releasing figures of it for the Jurassic Park 3 line. Two Dilophosaurus action …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic World: Amber Collection by Mattel)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy Before the mainline sized 3.75″ Hammond Collection came onto the scene this year and became all the rage, there was the ill-fated Amber Collection, a line of figures intended for 1/12 scale collectors. After its launch in late 2019, it saw poor species diversity (too many Velociraptor …

Dilophosaurus (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Attack Pack by Mattel)

Despite its many inaccuracies the Dilophosaurus in the original Jurassic Park was one of my favorite dinosaurs in the entire franchise. Fanciful yes, Spielberg deliberately altered the Dilophosaurus for his film for an added punch, and being the master movie director that he is, it worked. The Dilophosaurus scene in Jurassic Park was the scariest moment …

Dilophosaurus (Moveable Toy by 3rd Party/Gosnell)

The 3rd party market can produce some surprisingly good results sometimes – although it’s still not always by their own original merit.

Dilophosaurus (Nature World by Boley)

Review and photos by Bryan Divers, edited by Suspsy Dilophosaurus has become very well known as a result of its appearance in Jurassic Park, where it approaches the would-be burglar Dennis Nedry in a friendly manner, but then becomes angry and spits venom at him, much like a modern cobra. The real Dilophosaurus, of course, …
