All Velociraptor reviews

Alpha Velociraptor (Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect by Kenner)

Review and Photographs By Sketchy, edited by Suspsy While Jurassic World popularized the idea of genetically modified dinosaur hybrids, Kenner beat them to the idea over 17 years prior with the Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect line, a mix of crazy hybrids and similarly crazy repaints of old figures. Although at the time they were an …

Ancient Fossils (Toob by Safari Ltd)

Of all the product lines offered by stalwart manufacturer Safari Ltd, the “Toob®” line gives them the freest rein to explore unusual taxa. I’m personally fondest of the Toobs that furnish small versions of small animals that might scale well with Safari’s full-size figurines. We’ve reviewed some of their most interesting Toobs featuring “alive” animals …

Baby Velociraptor Playpen (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom by LEGO)

“Greetings once again, fellow dinosaur lovers! Dr. Bella Bricking here, along with Beth Buildit and her precocious young niece, Bronwyn!” “Bwah? What the heck is Bronwyn doing here, Doc?! My sister forbade me from taking her on any more of our adventures after that last time! “Oh, Bronwyn was perfectly safe with us, Beth! Besides, …

Carnivorous Dinos (Toob by Safari Ltd.)

When it comes to tubes of miniatures, or “toobs,” Safari Ltd. remains the undisputed ruler. That said, they haven’t released any new toobs in years, and many of their prehistoric-themed ones are really showing their age. Today we’ll be examining one such example, Carnivorous Dinos, consisting of twelve miniatures representing a veritable Who’s Who of …

Compsognathus (alias “Velociraptor”) by Tchibo

Tchi – what?! Here we have a funny dinosaur figure. It´s funny and bizarre for at least six reasons. It´s not only its overall look. It´s also because 1. its manufacturer company is unknown and 2. it was distributed by coffee trading company Tchibo from Germany who 3. called it Velociraptor what it definitely is …

Cretaceous Collection (Kaiyodo Capsule Q Museum)

Review and photos by Patryx Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Mosasaurus, and Pteranodon. What a familiar lineup! This is a set decidedly influenced by the hype surrounding the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, consisting of five iconic creatures from all over the Cretaceous. It’s an intriguing concept, as Kaiyodo is revered for their up-to-date reconstructions, …

Deinonychus and Velociraptors (Playmobil)

The Velociraptor pack has come across an unguarded nest of eggs. But a hungry Deinonychus has also found the nest, and he’s not in the mood to share! The Playmobil Deinonychus is a small figure, standing only up to 9 cm tall and measuring 14 cm long. That said, it is probably the scariest-looking dinosaur …

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.

Dinosaur Advent Calendar 2016 (Schleich)

Review and photos by Tim Sosa This year Schleich followed in the footsteps of companies like Lego and Playmobil in offering an advent calendar, but this one is dinosaur-themed! 24 days of dinosaur goodies sounds pretty attractive, so I bit the bullet and picked one up. I opened it long before Christmas, so that maybe …

Dinosaur Advent Calendar 2020 (Schleich)

Dinosaurs II (Authentics Habitat Collection by Safari ltd.)

This fine set of little Battat precursors from Gregory Wenzel has aged impressively well, and any collector who’s found a chance to own the set should find these a delight.

Discover Dinosaurs: Dino Cretaceous Vol. 1 by Colorata

Colorata’s first dinosaur set doesn’t hold up perfectly to modern science, but overall these are nicely made figures good for both play and display.

Feathered Dinos Tube (Safari Ltd)

Safari Ltd have produced several tubes (or ‘toobs’ as they call them) that contain a diverse selection of mini-dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. These tubes are a great choice for the indecisive amongst us. Why pick one single large dinosaur when you can get an entire tube of small dinosaurs for the same price. The …
