Deinosuchus vs. Parasaurolophus Diorama (Dinosauria by Sideshow)

Review by Dan Liebman of DansDinosaurs.com Photos by Jeremy Killian The fifth entry in Sideshow’s Dinosauria line features a predation scene like many others, yet with only a single true dinosaur. Deinosuchus vs. Parasaurolophus looks to be an almost classical depiction of violence in the natural world, the massive jaws of a monstrous crocodilian clamping …

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 …

Dinosaur miniatures (unknown company)

Review and photos by Rebecca O’Neill, edited by Dinotoyblog. This group of ten novelty, cartoonish dinosaurs were purchased on Ebay in 2018, and don’t seem to be available anymore. Very much in the style of The Land Before Time or Dinosaurs the television show from the 1990s, they are a variety of well known dinosaurs rendered in a caricature …

Dinosaurs I (Authentics Habitat Collection by Safari ltd.)

These six little dinos, sculpted by the Carnegie Collection’s own Forest Rogers, may look pretty dated today; but they manage to blend old and new aspects of science to produce a charming set as a whole.

Halfbaby Dinosaur Set (Yantai, distributed by Learnplay Inc.)

Review and photos by Charles Peckham, edited by Suspsy Trying to find information about either the creator of these toys, a Chinese company named Yantai, or their American distributor, Learnplay Inc., isn’t easy. According to one of the few sources I was able to find, Yantai has been around since 2011 and their Halftoy line …

Mesozoic Creatures (Tamiya)

Review and photographs by Indohyus, edited by Suspsy When it comes to makers of model sets, the Japanese company Tamiya should be familiar to most. From planes to light infantry, they have created a wide range of products. One of those lines, however, consists of dinosaur models. The first set of these models were mostly …

Parasaurolophus (2007 version) (Replica-Saurus by Schleich)

Parasaurolophus is a well known lambeosaurine dinosaur from Late Cretaceous North America, where it lived near the Western Interior Seaway. It sported a large crest on its skull which may have been used for making vocalizations and has caused this genus to be easily recognizable to the public. The name means “near-crested reptile”. Parasaurolophus was …

Parasaurolophus (2007)(Bullyland)

Images and review by PhilSauria, edited by Suspsy. Parasaurolophus is a pretty distinctive animal and just about all of the manufacturers of dinosaur figures that have been around for a while now have their brand on the underside of a plastic version of one. I have 13 examples in my collection and there are more …

Parasaurolophus (AAA)

Review and photos by Strawberry Crocodile, edited by Suspsy Hadrosaurs are often relegated to the role of “supporting cast” in dinosaur media. Despite their success as a group, they simply don’t grab people’s imaginations as much as deadly theropods, record-shattering sauropods, or the absolutely bizarre shapes their ornithischian cousins have taken. More often than not, …

Parasaurolophus (adult and baby)(CollectA)

Review and photos by Nathan Morris (‘Takama’), edited by Plesiosauria. This familiar dinosaurian staple requires no introduction. Here we have CollectA’s standard-sized reproduction of this mighty horned hadrosaur, plus a baby for good measure. These CollectA figures were produced when the company was first venturing into the dinosaur toy market, so I’m willing to forgive …

Parasaurolophus (Baby)(AAA)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy Parasaurolophus seems to be the hadrosaur with the most toy representations by far, no doubt due to its charismatic, iconic head crest. It just looks neat, design-wise, compared to, for example, Lambeosaurus with its weird hatchet, Corythosaurus with its dull plate, or Tsintaosaurus and the unfortunate way …

Parasaurolophus (Baby)(Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Review and photos by Quentin Brendel, edited by Suspsy With its long, tubular crest protruding from the back of its skull, Parasaurolophus is one of the most easily-recognized hadrosaurids. The model to be reviewed today does not have much of one, being a juvenile animal. Safari Ltd’s rendition, while not perfect, is still a nice …

Parasaurolophus (Battat)(Boston Museum of Science)

Review by Dan Liebman, Photos by Mat Hockett No dinosaur figure collection is complete without Parasaurolophus. While some may outclass her in a popularity contest, she is certainly the most well-known of all hadrosaurs. Her signature crest provides instant recognition, and this reconstruction for the Battat line includes a rarely-depicted stretch of skin running from …

Parasaurolophus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

Review and photographs by Quentin Brendel (aka Pachyrhinosaurus), edited by Suspsy Perhaps the most well-recognized ornithopod, Parasaurolophus is included in nearly every dinosaur toy line. It was part of the original starting lineup of the legendary Carnegie Collection. In fact, the Carnegie Parasaurolophus was one of only five models released in 1988 to have remained …

Parasaurolophus (Chap Mei)

Ah, Parasaurolophus. By virtue of its distinctive tube-shaped crest, it has become the “default” hadrosaur, the one most frequently depicted in films, television, and toys. This particular piece of plastic we’ll be looking at comes courtesy of Chap Mei. From the tip of its bill to the curve in its tail, this dinosaur measures 21.5 …
