Prehistoric Animals (Panini, review part 2)

Panini prehistoric animals and dinosaur toys

In part 1 of this review we looked at 12 dinosaur toys (and one pterosaur) from Panini’s Prehistoric Animals line. In part 2 we pick up where we left off to complete the full set of 24 toys. Figure numbers 13 to 15 are a trio of marine reptiles, and their dark blue colour works …

Prehistoric Sea Life Toob (Safari Ltd.)

Review by Cordylus, photos and figure captions by Plesiosauria This is truely a marine reptile lover’s dream come true. For years, Nothosaurus, Metriorhynchus, Basilosaurus and the like were all hard to find and expensive (if there were any to even be found) – until now. Last september the dinosaur collecting community was stunned by the …

Tylosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)

The second new addition for the Carnegie Collection in 2009 is a mosasaur – the ferocious Tylosaurus. Mosasaurs are a real rarity in toy form so this is an exciting release! The figure might be considered a replacement for the now retired Carnegie Collection Mosasaurus. I’ll say from the start that the new Tylosaurus is …

Tylosaurus (CollectA)

Tylosaurus was one of the biggest and baddest mosasaurs, second only to Mosasaurus itself. Indeed, the largest mounted mosasaur skeleton in the world is the 13 metre long “Bruce,” located at the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre in Manitoba. CollectA’s 2009 Tylosaurus figure measures a mere 18.5 cm long, but that’s only due to the pose …

Tylosaurus (Mojö Fun)

Very occasionally, the fossil record allows us a fascinating glimpse into interactions between various extinct animals. Take the “Talkeetna Mountains Hadrosaur” for example. Discovered in Alaska in 1994, it is a juvenile specimen that washed out to sea after its death and eventually sank to the bottom to become fossilized. Preserved toothmarks on the bones …

Tylosaurus (Papo)

Review and photos by ‘Takama’, edited by Plesiosauria [who apologises profusely to Takama for the long time it has taken to post this article – “months” wouldn’t be an overstatement]. Like it or not, Papo have created their first mosasaur and to cut to the chase: it’s a downright failure. Papo has been under extreme …

Tylosaurus (PNSO)

The vast inland sea known as the Western Interior Seaway of the Late Cretaceous split the continent that we would come to know today as North America from north to south. As the landmasses on either side were ruled by dinosaurs and other terrestrial animals, this inland sea was ruled by huge marine reptiles. While …

Tylosaurus (Recur)

Goodness, but it’s been quite awhile since the last time I did a Recur review. The company still appears to be struggling to break out of the Asian market, as their products are not available at any of the most popular online stores like EverythingDinosaur or MiniZoo or Dan’s Dinosaurs. They have, however, been showing …

Tylosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd.)

Safari Ltd Tylosaurus

Lizards have been around about as long as dinosaurs, and during their time on Earth their family tree has produced some weird side branches. One is snakes (yes, all snakes are lizards, but not all lizards are snakes). Another is the mosasaurs, a group of large aquatic lizards that included some of the largest predators …
