All Diplodocus reviews

Dino Skulls (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

From the savage teeth of tyrannosaurs to the intimidating horns of ceratopsians to the endearing crests of hadrosaurs and to the peculiar noggins of pachycephalosaurs, dinosaur skulls truly are stupendous. I previously reviewed Safari’s toob of prehistoric mammal skulls; now I’ll be looking at their Dino Skulls toob. There are eleven skulls in total, all …

Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

Safari’s very first prehistory toob is charming, but largely showing its age in the details and aesthetics of the figurines.

Dinosaurs III (Authentics Habitat Collection by Safari ltd.)

The final set of Safari’s first forays into dinosaur miniatures features a charming blend of aesthetics, and also serves in retrospect as a tribute to a dawning hobby and its burgeoning artists.

Diplodocus (1988) (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

Diplodocus is one of those all American sauropods every kid grew up with, right alongside Apatosaurus and Brachiosaurus. Described in 1878 it is still the longest known sauropod from a complete skeleton. It is no wonder then, that the Carnegie Collection would include this animal in their original 1988 lineup of museum quality replicas. In …

Diplodocus (2008) (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

Although the 2008 Diplodocus has been featured several times on this blog already, it has never been reviewed, so it’s time to make amends with a photographic walkaround and short review. This is Safari’s second attempt at a Diplodocus and this version is a much improved affair. The overall appearance of the model is elegant …

Diplodocus (2017) (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

Available from Amazon here. For some reason, I can remember that one of the dinosaur books I had as a kid included a picture of a Diplodocus-style sauropod, with a quote from a paleontologist in the caption saying that “for most people, this is literally Mr Dinosaur himself”. It’s a comment that captures the unique …

Diplodocus (Battat)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus, edited by Suspsy Without a doubt, the Battat line of dinosaur figures is one of the most famous that has ever been produced. Since its original release back in the mid-1990s’ and up to its most recent revival, so much has been said about the line that it is safe …

Diplodocus (Collecta)

Guest review by Niroot Puttapipat (Himmapaan) Diplodocids are largely represented in figure form by the ubiquitous Apatosaurus (or ‘generic-o-pod’, as a certain friend and esteemed colleague has it), with Diplodocus itself being relatively few in number. I greeted the news of the CollectA model with mixed feelings; glad that there is another to add to …

Diplodocus (Eofauna)

Diplodocus is without question one of the most famous dinosaur species, not least because its history goes a fair way back in the science of paleontology. In 1877 Samuel Wendell Wilson in company of his mentor Benjamin Franklin Mudge led an expidition for Othniel Charles Marsh (this name may ring a bell with a much …

Diplodocus (Invicta)

Can you believe we haven’t covered this figure yet? One of the first truly lo-o-ong dinosaur toys, the Invicta Diplodocus dates back to 1974. It was a simpler time, when sauropods were kind enough to drag their tails around for allosaurs to snack on at their convenience, and some of our more aged forum members …

Diplodocus (Kleinwelka)

The reviewed replica lying on a brochure of the park. Ah, a classic, monochrome tail dragging sauropod figure! Ah, a replica of a classic behemoth, exclusively released in one theme park in a single region! Ah, a legacy from those times when dinosaurs were regarded at as strange, clumsy foreign bodies. Ah, a figure as …

Diplodocus (Natural History Museum by Toyway)

Here is the 2006 Toyway Diplodocus, ready to tap dance into your hearts, across your living room, and give comedic one timers. Couldn’t you just picture this model walking on stage to an in-studio audience applause and doing an opening monologue. Of course with that smile, it should do some toothpaste commercials as well. Before …

Diplodocus (Soft Model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

What is possibly the largest Dinosaur in the Soft Model line to date strides in with the 2020 Favorite lineup; how big and how accurate is it really?

Diplodocus (Starlux)

There are many wonderful paintings by Charles Knight, one in particular has a Apatosaurus in the fore-ground, with its head and neck rising out of the swampy water. It looks big and clumsy. In the back ground, grazing on the shore of this prehistoric swamp, there is a Diplodocus, painted in a boring grey color. …

Diplodocus (Tyco)

Review and photographs by Paleona, edited by Suspsy No childhood collection of dinosaurs is complete without a large sauropod, and Tyco’s Diplodocus certainly fit the bill during the late 80’s. Originally sold among the Dino-Riders toy line as Diplodocus, it would later be remarketed under the Smithsonian line as Apatosaurus. To avoid confusion, I’ll be …
