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