Huayangosaurus (Dinotales series 7 by Kaiyodo)

4.3 (7 votes)
This spikey Chinese stegosaur is hugely detailed for such a tiny figure (about 8 cm long). Kaiyodo has this down to an art and their figures are often tiny but very detailed and highly accurate. The Huayangosaurus figure is part of Kayodo’s Dinotales line, specifically from  Series 7, the most recent release.

Pteranodon longiceps (Bullyland)

2.4 (7 votes)
One of several Pteranodon figures from Bullyland. This figure appears to represent P. longiceps and contrasts with Bully’s smaller P. sternbergi figures (one reviewed previously: here)

Notice the metal ring attached to the back so you can hang this figure for display.

A full review of this figure will be added at a later date.

Iguanodon (Walking with Dinosaurs by Toyway)

4.1 (14 votes)

Although a full review will be added in time, I just had to highlight the hind feet on this figure. As you can see below, they look more like alien feet than dinosaur feet; the four pedestal-like toes seem out of place on an Iguanodon sculpt that is otherwise very accurate.

Edmontosaurus (Schleich)

4.3 (23 votes)
Review and photos by Stefan Schröder (alias Libraraptor)
It is time to pay tribute to a real classic: Schleich 1997 Edmontosaurus! Being a huge figure indeed, its size hits the eye immediately. It can compete with the 12 years younger Spinosaurus effortless: 26 centimetres long and 17 centimetres tall, it definitely is one of the larger hadrosaur reconstructions out there.

Lambeosaurus (Collecta/Procon)

2.2 (14 votes)
Review and photos by Stefan Schröder (alias Libraraptor)
This Collecta Lambeosaurus is indeed a strange reconstruction of this upper Cretaceous hadrosaur. In this review I would like to explain why.
But basics first: The Lambeosaurus measures 14, 5 centimetres in length and is 6, 5 centimetres tall.

Tyrannosaurus Rex (DinoTales series 7 by Kaiyodo)

5 (13 votes)
Tyrannosaurus rex was a large theropod dinosaur that lived in north america from 68 to 65 million years ago. “Rex” is commonly called the “king of the dinosaurs”, so it surprises me how many models do not do justice to the “king”. This piece by Kaiyodo does it justice, and more.

Arsinoitherium (Prehistoric Life Collection by Safari Ltd)

4.3 (16 votes)
Arsinoitherium was a large paenungulate mammal which lived roughly 30 million years ago during the late Eocene and early Oligocene epochs in Northeastern Africa. These animals would have superficially resembled modern rhinoceroses but were in fact more closely related to elephants. Unlike those of a rhinoceros, the massive horns of Arsinoitherium were comprised of solid bone. 

Stegosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari Ltd)

4 (27 votes)
Review and photographs by ‘Tetonbabydoll’. Edited by Plesiosauria.
The first impression one might get when they see this Stegosaurus figure is its small size. The figure measures 6 inches long and 3.5 inches high at the tip of the highest plate. It is roughly the size of the original Carnegie and Battat stegosaurs.

Tyrannosaurus rex (Deluxe version, Procon/CollectA)

2.6 (18 votes)
Review and photograph by ‘Tyrannax’. Edited by Plesiosauria.
What a great improvement! So far, we’ve seen countless common and unheard of dinosaur names released by Procon (Now called CollectA), but due to the large amount of toys sold each year from this company, some will claim this affected the sculpt quality.

Doedicurus (Prehistoric Life Collection by Safari Ltd)

4.3 (16 votes)
Doedicurus was a large genus of glyptodont sporting a bony carapace and a tail ending in a spiked club. These adaptations may have been for defense from Smilodon, which coexisted with Doedicurus, but the club may also have been used during confrontations with other Doedicurus. These animals could reach 12 feet in length and weigh as much as a Volkswagen Beetle.

Andrewsarchus (Prehistoric Life Collection by Safari Ltd)

4.2 (12 votes)
Andrewsarchus was a large basal mesonychid which existed roughly 45 million years ago during the Eocene epoch. It is known only from a large skull measuring more than three feet long and a few bone fragments, so most reconstructions of the animal’s postcranial anatomy are based on its smaller and more well known mesonychid relative Mesonyx.

Procynosuchus (Bullyland)

5 (15 votes)
Today I want to introduce to you an extraordinary Bullyland figure that is not available that easily: The Procynosuchus from the “Korbacher Spalte” in Germany (“cleft of Korbach”). Also called the “Korbach dachshund”, this ‘mammal-like reptile’ has been found in a cleft where Permian layers outcrop, about 256 million years old.

Micromachines dinosaurs (National Geographic Collection/ Micromachines)

4.5 (4 votes)
Micromachines, a brand noted for their wide range of miniature automobiles, stepped outside the box when they produced a series of dinosaurs in association with National Geographic. Obviously they are all tiny, a bit smaller than the figures in Kaiyodo’s dinotales range, but they are quite nice and very collectible.
