All Kentrosaurus reviews

Kentrosaurus (4D Puzzle by Fame Master)

Poor Kentrosaurus, it always plays second fiddle to its larger cousin Stegosaurus.  Still, the genus has proved popular enough to be reproduced as a toy in several instances. And oddly enough, most of them have proved to be great representations. Safari, CollectA, Tyco, and even Schleich have all produced some outstanding Kentrosaurus figures. In the …

Kentrosaurus (Age of the Dinosaurs by PNSO)

As a hungry allosaur appears from the brush, Sethi abandons his breakfast and adopts a fighting stance. The predator moves in quickly, but Sethi responds by swinging his great tail in a full arc. The swooshing sound and flashing spikes give the allosaur pause, but then it resumes its advance. Sethi swings his tail again …

Kentrosaurus (CollectA)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria. Kentrosaurus aethiopicus, the ‘sharp point’ or ‘prickle’ lizard, is one of the better known members of the stegosaur family, and though vastly overshadowed by its American cousin – Stegosaurus stenops – it has still managed to have several representations in toy form. Perhaps one of the tiniest …

Kentrosaurus (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Kentrosaurus is one of those dinosaurs that almost everyone in this community has heard of, as it’s basically a cousin of Stegosaurus with more spikes and spines coming out of its shoulders. It may have been smaller than Stegosaurus, but that did not mean that it was …

Kentrosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

Once more, we head to the DinoWaurs Survival line, this time investigating a member of the Stegosaurs added to the line, and the first figure of this line I bought: Kentrosaurus. From the Kimmeridgian of Tanzania, this Stegosaur is often thought of as primitive, but recent studies suggest it is more derived and closer related …

Kentrosaurus (Electronic Deluxe by Chap Mei)

As Styracosaurus is to Triceratops, Kentrosaurus is to Stegosaurus. This thorny little thyreophoran would have been a risky meal for any Jurassic predator. Chap Mei’s electronic Kentrosaurus figure measures just under 28 cm long and stands 15.5 cm at the tip of its back plates. Very light grey is the main colour with medium and …

Kentrosaurus (Jurassic World Dino-Escape, Roar Attack by Mattel)

With the addition of a re-sculpted Stegosaurus, Chialingosaurus, and now this Kentrosaurus to the line, Mattel has given the stegosauria clade much love this year. Until now the only member of this group represented in the line was the 2018 Stegosaurus and its re-paint. The Kentrosaurus we’re looking at is also significant in that it’s …

Kentrosaurus (the Lost Kingdoms series C, by Yowie)

Despite it being smaller and less grandeur in size when compared to its contemporaries Stegosaurus and Tuojiangosaurus , Kentrosaurus’s look is snazzy enough for the major dinosaur toy brands to show it some love from time to time.  As with many of its fellow sterosaurids it had a small yet narrow skull that ended with a beak …

Kentrosaurus (Tyco)

Review and photographs by Paleona Back in the late 80’s / early 90’s, pre-Jurassic Park, the Tyco dinosaurs were among the first dinosaur action figures. Tyco first released their dinosaur toys as a Dino-Riders toy line, but the Smithsonian Institution later hired Tyco to release a museum quality line of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals under …

Kentrosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

What’s that coming over the hill? Why, it’s the Wild Safari Kentrosaurus, new for 2010. A special mention should go out to the magnanimous and quite probably very handsome Dan Liebman, he of Dan’s Dinosaurs, who was generous enough to airmail me this little guy for a reviewing. Cheers! Now that I’ve shamelessly sold out, …

Kentrosaurus (World of History by Schleich)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria. A small member of the stegosaur family from Tanzania, Kentrosaurus aethiopicus is often hidden in the shadow of its much larger and more famous big brother, Stegosaurus stenops. That’s not to say that other toy lines haven’t made their own versions of it; CollectA and Safari Ltd …

Kentrosaurus(Mini, by Schleich)

Schleich has changed their typical toy dinosaurs lineup over the past two years.  They have added new playsets and sizes for their prehistoric line of toys.  The mini sized dinosaurs were introduced in 2015 with eight figures.  Due to their low cost, different sculpts, and new paint jobs that differ from their bigger brethren, the minis were …

Prehistoric Tube A (CollectA)

Following in the footsteps of Safari Ltd and Papo, CollectA burst into the world of miniatures in late 2015. Today we’ll be looking at Prehistoric Tube A, which contains no less than ten figures of some of the most popular dinosaurs and other extinct animals. The tube itself measures 27 cm long, is made of …
