Review: Guanlong wucaii (Creative Beast Studios, Beasts of the Mesozoic Tyrannosaur series)

4.7 (74 votes)

It is quite refreshing to finally review a 1/18 scale dinosaur from Beasts of the Mesozoic that is not a ceratopsian. It is also refreshing to not have to write a review of a Mattel dinosaur or a pterosaur either. The BOTM Tyrannosaur series has arrived, and I, Emperor Dinobot, am excited beyond belief.

Review: Sarcosuchus (2021)(Jurassic World: Massive Biters by Mattel)

3.2 (81 votes)

Many of the most vibrantly coloured vertebrates living on the planet today are reptiles, particularly squamates such as the gold dust day gecko, the collared lizard, the rainbow boa, and the eastern coral snake. Certain testudines including the red-eared slider, the eastern box turtle, and the northern river terrapin also feature bold patterning and coloration.

Review: Triceratops (Subadult) (Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

4.8 (58 votes)

For almost every Tyrannosaurus toy on the market, there’s a Triceratops toy to face off with – as it should be, considering the rich history of fossils and iconic paleo media depicting these legendary Cretaceous contemporaries. Triceratops was more than just a prime steak to fill a theropod’s belly, of course; this colossal herbivore would have been a spectacular animal in its own right, and a powerful presence roaming the forests and hills of Western North America.

Review: Kronosaurus (Jurassic World Dino Trackers, Wild Roar by Mattel)

3.4 (75 votes)

There’s no real debate about it. The Mattel Jurassic World Mosasaurus is still one of the line’s best toys. Pushing 30” in length and covered in rubbery “real feel” material, it has also been released and re-released consistently over the last 5 years. A testament to its quality.

Review: Geosternbergia (Jurassic World Legacy Collection)

1.7 (51 votes)

Mattel has serious distribution problems going as far back as 2004. I collect Batman figures, and I am also a completist, if you haven’t noticed. The final few waves of the Comic Book style Batman series, as well as some figures from The Batman were only released on Europe, and sometimes in Latin America.

Review: Geosternbergia (Jurassic Park Hammond Collection 30th Anniversary by Mattel)

2.7 (90 votes)

I told you I would return to pterosaurs soon enough. I, EmperorDinobot, got this Jurassic Park Hammond Collection Geosternbergia early on, and to be honest, there is not much I can say about it, as it is a re-tool of the Amber Collection Pteranodon, which has been reviewed here.

Review: Concavenator (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Hammond Collection by Mattel)

3.2 (173 votes)

With the announcement of the Hammond Collection Concavenator late last year it became apparent that Mattel had no intention of limiting their premium collector’s line to creatures with significant screen time in the Jurassic franchise. This revelation left many collectors feeling frustrated, hoping that the Hammond Collection line would at least tackle more important prehistoric animals first.

Review: Quetzalcoatlus (Jurassic World: Mega Dual Attack by Mattel)

3.1 (107 votes)

Although Quetzalcoatlus finally made its onscreen debut in 2022 courtesy of Jurassic World: Dominion, longtime collectors know full well that Kenner released a toy of the colossal azdharchid all the way back in 1994, which has still not yet been reviewed for the blog (although you can get a fairly good idea of what it was like from my review of the Lost World Pteranodon).

Review: Yutyrannus (Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy

Yutyrannus is both one of my favorite theropods and favorite dinosaurs in general these days. I still remember coming across an online news article about it back in early 2012 and being excited to see that they finally found a large feathered dinosaur.

Review: Protoceratops andrewsi (Beasts of the Mesozoic 1:18 by Creative Beast Studio)

4.8 (97 votes)

Protoceratops is a staple of classic dinosaur multimedia. What the “first horned face” lacks in size and ornamentation when compared to later ceratopsian relatives, it makes up for with excellent preservation in the fossil record, its discovery dating back to the Central Asiatic Expeditions of the early 1900s.

Review: Pentaceratops Beasts of the Mesozoic

4.8 (85 votes)

Nothing has brought me more joy in recent years than David Silva’s Beasts of the Mesozoic figures. Some may call me a material boy, and that’s ok. We are humans, and we thrive on material culture. Part of that culture is our toys and figures which enrich our lives in an aesthetically pleasing fashion.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (1/35 Scale Kickstarter Exclusive)(Beasts of the Mesozoic by Creative Beast Studio)

4.7 (104 votes)

Review and photos by Faelrin, edited by Suspsy

The year was 2000 and I was 9 years old. I remember sitting wide-eyed watching the BBC Walking with Dinosaurs documentary series on the Discovery Channel on the big television in my family’s living room, with my parents.

Review: Jurassic World: Dominion Roar Strikers Pteranodon (Mattel)

1.5 (63 votes)

Here we go again, for the last time, I hope. I, EmperorDinobot will now give you the final Mattel Pteranodon figure that uses the mold first used by the Roarivores Pteranodon from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and which has been retooled several times, as you can see here, here, here, here and here.

Review: Dryptosaurus (Jurassic World Dino Trackers, Wild Roar by Mattel)

2.3 (102 votes)

The late Cretaceous tyrannosauroid, Dryptosaurus, is a historically significant genus that due to the fragmentary nature of its preserved material has been largely forgotten and ignored. Dryptosaurus aquilunguis was one of the first theropods ever discovered and the first theropod discovered in the Americas.

Review: Jurassic World Destruct-A-Saurs Helicopter Set with Pteranodon (Mattel)

1.7 (73 votes)

EmperorDinobot here with another Pteranodon from the Jurassic World Franchise by Mattel. Destruct-A-Saurs saw very little distribution across the US, and the few that were found were purchases along the southern border, so collectors were scrambling to get these from our Mexican pals who were always willing to help.
