Velociraptor (Rhode Island Novelty)

Review and photos by Takama, edited by Suspsy
Ever since someone reviewed a Boley Dilophosaurus, I began to rethink exactly what is open for reviewing on this blog. I thought I would test the waters by reviewing one of my cheap “Chinasaurs” brand dinosaurs that I have been buying every time I go to the local vegetable or fruit festivals, whenever they are available.

Velociraptor (Safari Ltd)

3.5 (11 votes)

Back in 1993 Safari Ltd. released a rather large Velociraptor that allegedly belonged to their “Dinosaurs of China” line. As it turns out, it didn’t and while it has been briefly reviewed on the blog already that review was the old style “single paragraph” review. That, in conjunction with our new revelation as to the true origins of this model has compelled me to review it yet again, and this time a bit more in depth.

Feathered dromaeosaurs are always welcome on the toy market, and especially feathered Velociraptor figures. Perhaps rather unsurprisingly – given that a certain 20-year-old film is raking in the cash yet again this year – the biggest dinosaur toy names (in the West, anyway) continue to peddle scandalously nude figures.

For a long time now, too long in fact, various collectable dinosaur companies have tried and failed to make a properly feathered and accurate representation of one of the world’s most popular dinosaurs; Velociraptor and its kin the stem-birds we call dromaeosaurs or “raptors.” When I first started collecting dinosaur toys the best representations included those by Bullyland and CollectA and while we commend their efforts to popularize feathered dinosaurs they ultimately failed to make convincing looking animals.

It looks as though Papo finally has some competition. This Velociraptor by Wild Safari is great, and it can be found pretty cheap too. I bought mine for $7.99. It has to be the best Safari velociraptor ever (All of the other safari velociraptors are ugly in my opinion!).

Velociraptor (World of History by Schleich)

The last two reviews dealt with a Jurassic Park – inspired dinosaur and a new Schleich release. So here is your perfect synthesis, a review of Schleich´s new Velociraptor. It is way better than their last Velociraptor, but this was not difficult to achieve, to be honest. First Schleich Veliciraptor looked goofy and clumsy.

Velociraptor vs Protoceratops “Mongolian Fight” (Favorite Co. Ltd.)

4.3 (3 votes)

Review and photographs by Loon, edited by Suspsy.

Discovered in 1971, the “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossil is particularly special, as it preserved two dinosaurs apparently in a literal fight to the death. Because of this, the combatants, Protoceratops and Velociraptor, have joined the most legendary dinosaur rivalries. You’d be hard-pressed to find a piece of paleoart that doesn’t depict the two going at each other.

First off I’d like to start off my first review with a brief apology. I promised this review months ago, but between initial delays and my repeatedly putting it off [plus some tardiness on our part too – Ed] I’m only just now getting around to it.

Greetings dinosaur fans! With the Christmas and the New Year upon us, this will be my last review for the year. To make it special, I have chosen to review a set of figures that I have been wanting to review for a while now.

Wangensaurier (Pareiasaurus) (Margarinefiguren by Wagner)

4 (2 votes)

Today I would like to introduce to you the „Wangensaurier“ (literally meaning „cheek lizard“) from the “Wagner Margarinefiguren” series. When these figures were released sixty or so years ago, it was quite common in Germany to give prehistoric creatures German names and not to use the common species name.

Williamsonia (CollectA)

5 (12 votes)
Thought I’d take a stab at reviewing a prehistoric plant for the first time. Let’s take a look at Williamsonia, a member of the order of Bennettitales, or cycadeoids. Bennettitales were an order of seed plants that first arose during the Triassic and then flourished all the way until the end of the Cretaceous.

Wooden Theropod of unknown origin

The title of this review does not really sound promising, does it? But in the next few lines I´ll do my best to entertain you and of course introduce to you my recent acquisition:
My perception of what is a toy includes extraordinary fellows like this one. The theropod – it is probably a Tyrannosaurus but for a reason I´ll explain later I can´t really tell – is 38 cm long and 17,5 cm tall.

Woolly Mammoth (Adult and Calf)(CollectA)

Review and photos by Bokisaurus, edited by Suspsy

Today, our little furry friend decided that he missed his Ice Age co-stars and so he decided to travel back to that time and meet up with one of the big stars!
Love it or not, you have to admire the level of popularity and recognition that the woolly mammoth have achieved in the toy industry as well as popular culture.

There’s a vast array mammoth models out there in the world of prehistoric animal figures but they rarely get much attention here on the Dinosaur Toy Blog. That is, of course, because they are just boring old mammals, but let’s not hold this against them, they can’t help it.
