Triceratops (Playmobil)

4.6 (7 votes)
A Triceratops and her baby are munching on yummy plants. Suddenly the mother senses that something is wrong. Quickly she leads her baby to safety as the nearby volcano begins to rumble!

Playmobil’s version of the número uno ceratopsid measures 23 cm long and stands 9 cm tall at the hips.

Brachiosaurus (Playmobil)

3.6 (9 votes)
The ground is shaking. Is it an earthquake? No, it’s just Brachiosaurus! This gentle giant is hungry and looking for his favourite fruit tree.

Not surprisingly, the Brachiosaurus is HUGE. It stands nearly 27 cm tall and measures 51 cm long, making it the largest animal figure in any Playmobil line.

Indominus Rex (Electronic Chomping Version)(Jurassic World by Hasbro)

Review and photos by stargatedalek. Figure available from Amazon.com here and Amazon.co.uk here.
I’ve never done one but recently there has been a craze with “un-boxing videos”, so I decided to give it a shot (minus the video!). From what I can tell this is the first of this sort of review on the blog so first time all around.

Allosaurus (Jurassic World Basher and Biters by, Hasbro)

1.2 (14 votes)
Available from Amazon.com here and Amazon.co.uk here.

Big Al had a lot of early success in films starring in the lead role of predatory dinosaur.  It first appeared in celluloid for the 1925 film, The Lost World.  That Allosaurus was based on the artwork of Charles R.

Indominus Rex vs. Gyro Sphere (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

*Disclaimer: “Indominus Rex“ is not a real dinosaur. It is a fictional genetically modified hybrid dinosaur created for the Jurassic World franchise.*
Jurassic World will be exploding onto screens in less than a month and many of us dino nuts are shaking in anticipation!

Velociraptor “BLUE” (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

1.5 (11 votes)
Velociraptor is one of the best known dinosaurs in the world, and it owes its popularity to Jurassic Park.  On screen, it is a cunning and deadly foe that is smart, fast, social, and hunts in groups so it can lay traps for its quarry.  In reality, it was small 3ft dinosaur from Mongolia that had feathers. 

Ankylosaurus (Jurassic World by Hasbro)

1.4 (15 votes)
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.

Spinosaurus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

2.8 (4 votes)
For over a century, the paleontologists and museums were the guardians of knowledge concerning beasts from the paleo world. Before the dark times…before Jurassic Park. Ok, so maybe not the dark times, but the fact remains that many in the general public owe their knowledge of dinosaurs due to what they learned in Jurassic Park.

Pteranodon (Playmobil)

3.5 (6 votes)
From his perch atop the tree, a Pteranodon sights a fish swimming in a pond. Quickly he spreads his wings, swoops down, and snatches it in his bill!

It’s virtually unthinkable for a dinosaur toyline not to have at least one pterosaur and Playmobil has gone with that most familiar of flyers, Pteranodon.

Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptors (Playmobil)

4.7 (21 votes)
For 40 years, Playmobil has been one of the most popular toylines in the world, famed for their simple yet elaborate designs and wide-ranging themes. Let us take a trip through their 2007 Dinosaurs line. We begin with Tyrannosaurus rex and a pair of Velociraptors.

Tyrannosaurus rex “Bull”(The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

5 (66 votes)
By far my favourite scene  in The Lost World: Jurassic Park was when the male Tyrannosaurus rex ran rampant through the city of San Diego in search of his baby. Sure, it was over-the-top, but it was undeniably fun. And who wouldn’t enjoy recreating that carnage in the comfort of their own home with a little imagination and a very large toy?

Parasaurolophus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

4.7 (18 votes)
In the week leading up to the May 1997 opening of The Lost World: Jurassic Park, one of my local radio stations held a daily contest where listeners could phone in and win movie tickets by correctly spelling a dinosaur’s name. After a couple of failed attempts, I managed to get on the air and win (easily).

Tapejara (Jurassic Park III, by Hasbro)

3.5 (6 votes)

How the Tapejara ever became a toy in the Jurassic Park toy line is puzzling when you look back at the turbulent time before Jurassic Park III was released. Hasbro downsized after the failure of the JP Chaos Effect toys, and the lower than expected sales from Star Wars Phantom Menace toys.

Triceratops (Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs by Kenner)

3.5 (6 votes)
Rounding out my assortment of Jurassic Park recolours is none other than the world’s most famous ceratopsid.

First released under the Lost World label in 1997, this Triceratops is rather small compared to the massive 1993 version. Its short horns and length of only 20 cm indicate that it is meant to represent a juvenile.

Velociraptor “Alpha” (Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs by Hasbro)

1.6 (14 votes)
The closure of Kenner by parent company Hasbro in 2000 meant that an entirely different team would design the toys for Jurassic Park 3. Many dinosaur collectors, including myself, feel that the quality of the line took a major nosedive as a result. As proof, I give you the “Alpha” Velociraptor.
