Anatosaurus (Edmontosaurus) (Definitely Dinosaurs by Playskool)

1.4 (7 votes)

The Definitely Dinosaurs line by Playskool was a series of dinosaur toys produced in the late 80’s and early 90’s. For those unfamiliar with them they were basically the more toddler-friendly version of Tyco’s Dino-Riders. Some of them, like the Stegosaurus, were eerily similar to their Tyco counterparts. If you were a dinosaur obsessed kid during this time period you no doubt had a few Definitely Dinosaurs in your toy box.

Before we get into talking about this toy, I think it’s worthwhile to discuss the history of the genus that we’re calling Anatosaurus, especially since this is the first review of a toy labeled with that genus on this website.

Warning:  If you are a serious collector and only interested in dinosaur toys that are prime examples of their species with impeccable accuracy, amazing detail, colors, and are brilliant works of paleo art, you may want to skip this review, as this figure is lacking in those key areas.

They grow up so fast! It was just over 13 months ago when I reviewed the bouncing baby Bumpy for the DTB and now here I am again with another Bumpy review. Only this time, Bumpy isn’t a baby anymore. When I reviewed that baby Bumpy, the animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous hadn’t even premiered yet, but I knew I had to have Bumpy in my collection because she was just so stinkin’ adorable.

By now, everyone reading this entry should be aware of the animated Jurassic World series coming to Netflix, titled Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Just a few days before this writing the trailer for the series dropped and the show will be airing next month. Although I’m not terribly excited about the show itself I am certainly excited by the wave of toys we’re getting that tie into it.

Definitely Dinosaurs was a quite popular line of toys from Playskool, produced from 1987 to 1996. Playskool is a subsidiary of Hasbro, and it has become a brand recognizable for its distinct style of cartoonish, yet detailed and sturdily built figures.

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

For better or worse, Jurassic World toys are upon us. And while most of them, frankly, look worse to me, the iconic Ankylosaurus looked somewhat better.

This “fused lizard” measures 16 cm long and is just under 13 cm tall including the raised tail. Main colours are raw umber and khaki with black and brown eyes, a pink mouth, flat brown for the spots and the JW logo on the left thigh, and red and white for the seemingly obligatory and always silly permanent wound on the left flank.

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

We’ve looked at an Ultra set, we’ve looked at a Deluxe set, and now it’s time to look at a Basic Jurassic World Hero Mashers Set. Specifically, that iconic walking battle tank, Ankylosaurus magniventris.

The Ankylosaurus is made up of seven parts. The main colours are mustard yellow and cerulean blue with light blue eyes, a pink mouth, and white teeth.

When you think of the toys made for Jurassic World by Hasbro, there are  probably a lot of colorful adjectives that pop into your head .  I warn you not utter them out loud as there are preschool toys present.  One word I did not hear many people say about the toy line was “fun”.

In 2001, “cinematic genius” Joe Johnston introduced Ankylosaurus to the Jurassic Park film franchise in one of the worst scene transitions in the series (remember, this is the same franchise that thought going from a screaming mother to a yawning Jeff Goldblum was a good idea).

Anomalocaris (The Great Old Sea by Takara Tomy A.R.T.S.)

Today we are looking at Anomalocaris canadensis from the 2020 Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. set called The Great Old Sea. It is one of three figures in the set; the others being the trilobite Olenoides serratus and a coelacanth (which I presume is extant?). This is not the first review of Anomalocaris on the Dinosaur Toy Blog, not even the first by me, so I am going to forgo any lengthy discussion about the animal itself.

Apatosaurus (Jurassic World Legacy Collection, by Mattel)

2.5 (17 votes)

It has now been two years since Mattel released their Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus, a highly anticipated toy that fans had been pining for since 1993. During much of that time between then and now people had wondered, “will we get an Apatosaurus too?” In my mind the likelihood of Mattel making an Apatosaurus was directly tied to how well the Brachiosaurus sold upon its release and I suppose the Brachiosaurus must have sold well, because Mattel has indeed given us an Apatosaurus.

Armadon (Primal Rage by Playmates)

Review and photographs by Funk, edited by Suspsy

The 1994 Atari fighting game Primal Rage featured a roster of stop-motion animated dinosaurs and giant apes that battled it out on a post-apocalyptic Earth (or “Urth”), which seems like an irresistible concept for a toyline, with Playmates jumping to the task in 1996, possibly to coincide with the sequel of the game which never materialised (toys based on characters from the sequel were also produced).
