Psittacosaurus (DinoWaurs Survival)

3.3 (6 votes)

The more I go into the DinoWaurs Survival line, the more I love the diversity of it. It’s not just the giants and often repeated species like Tyrannosaurus, but everything from Permian synapsids to plesiosaurs. Another thing I like is that they give the smaller species a chance to shine, such as today’s subject: Psittacosaurus, a genus so common that it is used as a bio marker in stratigraphy.

When it comes to synapsids, Dimetrodon is the animal that make its appearance in toy form the most. Many figures of this animal have been appeared over the years, but other few synapsids have been produced by toy companies.

Given that I counted correctly, this here will be my 50th review for the DTB. On the search for a worthy entry for that occasion, I deceided to add some figures to my collection that will provide the chance to combine the jubilee with a premiere cause to my big surprise I found that the American company Marx, despite its significance for our hobby, has not a single entry on the blog as of yet….

When it comes to Hadrosaurs, Parasaurolophus always seems to steal the lime light. The number of figures made of the species is huge, from high end to low end, from adults to juveniles. This leaves many of the rest of the family with very few figures, so any opportunity to grab copies of the more elusive species is often jumped upon.

Hadrosaurs are certainly an intriguing family of dinosaurs. A diverse range of animals evolved over several million years, including the largest non-sauropod herbivore ever known, Shantungosaurus. One of the most interesting features of certain species are the head crests, which allow them to stand out from other ornithopods, especially today’s review subject; Parasaurolophus, once more from the DinoWaurs Survival line.

Tyrannosaurus rex (Timpo)

For some reason I’m in a mood for firsts. So, here’s another company that hasn’t been featured on the Dinosaur Toy Blog before – Timpo Toys. And about time, too, this line really deserves some attention. Timpo was founded in England by German refugee Sally Gawrylovitz (also known as Ally Gee, aii) in 1938.

Once again I am back to reviewing another of the DinoWaurs line, seeing what is worth hunting for and what is not. With ankylosaurs being described as the tanks of the Mesozoic, it’s unsurprising that a couple would be included in this line.

The idea of blind bags and boxes to distribute toys is not a new idea. For years, many companies and toy lines have done this, and dinosaurs are not an unknown feature of these blind grabs. This includes the DinoWaurs trading figure line, with the idea being that kids and collectors will trade duplicates with each other and battle using the cards provided with the figures.

Stegosaurus (Field Museum Mold-A-Rama)

Finishing off our reviews of the Field Museum Mold-A-Rama collection is the Stegosaurus. Older original Mold-A-Rama dinosaurs exist as well but they aren’t currently being produced at the Field Museum and the only way to really obtain them is through eBay. It has come to my attention that the Stegosaurus machine was recently removed from the Field Museum so if you don’t already have the Stegosaurus then try to find one on eBay before they become scarce.

Tyrannosaurus (Field Museum Mold-A-Rama)

Having technically already been reviewed there really isn’t much new to say about this one. DTF member “Foxilized” reviewed the original back in 2010. For the sake of consistency though I feel compelled to share my thoughts too, I’ve been reviewing all of the current Field Museum Mold-A-Rama figures and it would feel strange not including this one.
