All Utahraptor reviews

Mini Figures Collection (Battat)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus, edited by Suspsy The Battat line of 1:40 scale dinosaurs is so famous that it needs little introduction. Rightly so, as these figures are some of the best representation of dinosaurs in toy form. In fact, even after 20+ years, the line is still is considered one of the best. …

Prehistoric Tube C (CollectA)

Since they first started producing tube sets back in 2015, CollectA has covered a pretty decent variety of prehistoric life, wild animals, sea creatures, and farm stock. In 2021, they went back to the beginning with a third dinosaur (mostly) set consisting of ten figures, all based on previously released toys. First we have this …

Utahraptor (AAA)

Okay, let´s take a closer look at AAA Utahraptor today. After a long break, welcome to another Libraraptor review of a quirky figure! By now, Utahraptor is a well known genus belonging to the group of Dromaeosaurs. Its size of seven meters in length makes it the biggest of the tribe. Many companies, for example …

Utahraptor (Battat) (Boston Museum of Science Collection)

Review by Tomhet, photo by Bokisaurus, edited by Dinotoyblog Good dromaeosaurid replicas are hard to come by. I completely abhor feathered renditions, so I was pretty excited when I finally got the Battat Utahraptor, a huge relative of the Deinonychus. Its skin is still pretty reptilic. The colours (which would be cloned later for the …

Utahraptor (CollectA)

Review and photographs by Tallin, edited by Plesiosauria. As one of the largest of the dromaeosaurids, Utahraptor ostrommaysorum perhaps first garnered significant public attention after starring in the 1999 animated documentary, Walking with Dinosaurs. Since this time, the scientifically accepted appearance of this 7m theropod has changed considerably, as more evidence has been unearthed supporting …

Utahraptor (Conquering the Earth by Schleich)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Utahraptor is one of those dinosaurs that I see as being overrated because the media seems to love it due to the fact that it was a larger dromaeosaur then the Velociraptors from Jurassic Park. The reason I feel it did not deserve all the attention is …

Utahraptor (DinoWaurs Survival)

Once more, I delve into the DinoWaurs Survival line to investigate a member of what most would see as an obvious group for this series: Raptors! However, there is only one member of this family actually featured in this line, and not the more famed members like Deinonychus or Velociraptor. The choice is more appropriate …

Utahraptor (Electronic Deluxe)(Terra Series by Battat)

Review and photos by Emperor Dinobot, edited by Suspsy Hello! I am Emperor Dinobot and we shall now look at something many of us perceive to be a very strange decision on the part of Battat. This toy is clearly intended for the kids and it makes perfect sense since the industry has completely changed. …

Utahraptor (Jurassic Hunters by Geoworld)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy Last time I did a review of a Geoworld product, I said that the company likes to put feathers only on species that are known to have feathers in the fossils. Well, unfortunately I should’ve done more research (and a little more glancing at my collection) because …

Utahraptor (Kenner, Jurassic Park series 2)

If you you are looking for an up-to-date, scientifically accurate dinosaur, this guy isn’t for you. However, if you like cool, vicious-looking, fun to play with dinosaurs, this figure is perfect.If you want to look at the Kenner Utahraptor with a scientist’s eye, there are very many problems; The short and bendy tail, the wrong …

Utahraptor (Keychain by Schleich)

As the largest dromaeosaur currently known, Utahraptor has received a fair number of toys, though certainly not as many as its smaller relatives Deinonychus and Velociraptor. The very first one (as far as I know of) was released by Kenner for the Jurassic Park line back in 1994. Battat and Safari Ltd. followed suit in …

Utahraptor (Walking with Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular)

Several months ago, I had the privilege to go and see the Walking with Dinosaurs Arena Spectacular. The full sized animatronic dinosaurs were a real spectacle, and Michaela Strachan did a wonderful job as the palaeontologist Huxley. I decided to grab a piece of memorabilia, so naturally, I went for a dino figure. But which …

Utahraptor (Walking With Dinosaurs by Toyway)

The spectacular Utahraptor by Toyway, based on the BBC Walking with Dinosaurs series, is a sleek, slender, rather mean-looking figure. The anatomy is accurate (except for the lack of feathers, but we’ll get to that in a moment), so this is one of the first ‘raptor’ figures to break away from the trendy but erroneous …

Utahraptor (Wild Safari, by Safari Ltd.)

The first specimen of  Utahraptor ostrommaysorum  was found in 1975.  In 1991 further remains were found, and like its fellow dromaeosaurids, it also sported a large, nightmare inducing, “killing” curved claw on its toe.  Thanks to its size being comparable to the over sized Velociraptors in Jurassic Park, and starring in a popular book written by …

Xtractaurs (Mattel)

Review and photos by Charles Peckham, edited by Suspsy I don’t own all the Xtractaurs, and I’m not sure if anyone does, but I feel I’ve been able to amass enough to give a decent overview of the series. Anyone who wants to review an individual Xtractaur for the Dinosaur Toy Blog, included in this …
