Review: Saichania (Antediluvia Collection)(David Krentz)

4.4 (7 votes)
“Saichania” is Mongolian for “beautiful one.” Admittedly, this is not the sort of title one expects to find among ankylosaurs. After all, they don’t quite have the sleek and decorative appearance of other thyreophorans like Kentrosaurus, nor the poise and majesty of the classic Stegosaurus. And yet, armored dinosaurs possess a vast array of impressive adornments, more than just functional protection against predators.

Review: T.rex Fight Over Carcass Diorama (Dinostoreus)

5 (7 votes)
Despite a superficially similar product line, Dinostoreus of the United States manages to distinguish itself from its former sister company, Favorite of Japan, with a few exclusive pieces. This diorama is one such piece. Constructed in fragile polyresin and just shy of five inches at its highest peak, this scene offers a glimpse of every dino-nut’s fantasy.

Review: Anatotitan (Sue at The Field Museum by Safari Ltd)

4.5 (18 votes)
In 2005, Safari LTD produced a line of 4 figures for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, IL. Among these is one of the best hadrosaur figures of recent years. Most famous for its role as the hapless victim of Tyrannosaurus in the classic Walking With Dinosaurs series, Anatotitan was a large hadrosaur that lived 68 – 65 million years ago in North America, coexisting with more famous dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, and Ankylosaurus.

Review: Styracosaurus (Carnegie Collection by Safari ltd)

3.7 (15 votes)
I really can’t get enough of this dinosaur it seems. This is what, the third review by me of a Stycacosaurus? This time I will be reviewing Carnegie’s rendition of the semi-popular spiked dinosaur.

Despite the vast myriad of dinosaurs species turned into models by them, Carnegie only has four ceratopsid species under its belt.

Review: Elasmosaurus (Horizon)

Photos and Review by Boki
What I have here is the resin version of the Horizon Elasmosaurus model kit. The resin versions were produced to be used by vendors as display samples of the vinyl kit and not mass produced. Its limited production and sales should make it one of the rarer and highly sought Horizon models around.

Review: Cetiosaurus (Invicta)

Review by Dan, Photos by Boki
Ask someone to name a sauropod, and “Apatosaurus” will often be the first species to come to mind. Consequently, this prototypical animal will often be the answer if you ask “What was the first sauropod ever discovered?” In fact, that title belongs to a relatively obscure creature known as Cetiosaurus.

Review: Opththalmosaurus (Walking with Dinosaurs by Toyway)

4.7 (9 votes)
Toyway produced a set of 11 dinosaur figures for their now out of production Walking with Dinosaurs line. This number includes the pterosaur Ornithocheirus, which was only available as a magazine give-away and is thus almost impossible to find. For this reason many collectors consider a WWD set complete even without the pterosaur. 

Review: Brachiosaurus (Museum Line by Bullyland)

4.3 (6 votes)
More Bullyland – and this time it’s their 2005 resculpt of the giant African brachiosaur Giraffatitan (still known at the time as “Brachiosaurusbrancai. And yes, I am going to refer to it as Giraffatitan throughout the review, to annoy you all and because it’s only correct, so there).

Review: Spinophorosaurus by Bullyland (exclusively for the Staatliches Naturhistorisches Museum, Braunschweig)

Species
Spinophorosaurus nigerensis was a midsize sauropod that lived in what is now Nigeria in the middle Jurassic, about 170 million years ago. It resembled a small Brachiosaurid and belonged to a sister taxon of the Eusauropoda. It was 13 metres long. Its most famous attributes are the spines at the end of the tail.

Review: Eustreptospondylus (Procon CollectA)

Review by forumite Foooman666 (edited by Horridus)
The subject of my review today has been previously reviewed here, but the review in question seems to have been removed, so I decided to do a new one myself. The toy I’m going to review is none other than the much loathed CollectA Eustreptospondylus.

Review: Triceratops (Desktop model by Favorite Co. Ltd.)

4.8 (6 votes)
This year Favorite have released this resculpt of their ‘Desktop’ Triceratops, and from an anatomical perspective it’s a huge improvement. The ‘Desktop’ models are freestanding resin statues that also come with a wooden plinth to look all grown-up like. Since the plinth isn’t attached you are free to discard it and display them alongside your less worthy plastic toys, for consistency’s sake.

Review: Tyrannosaurus rex (Thrasher )(The Lost World by Kenner)

4.9 (74 votes)
Recently there’s been a string of ceratopsian (along with one abelisaurid) reviews here at the Dinosaur Toy Blog. However, any kid knows that the arch-nemesis of the ceratopsian is the tyrannosaur. There is no tyrannosaur more famous than the namesake of the family, Tyrannosaurus rex. One could pull anyone off of the street, and chances are that they would know what a T.

Review: Triceratops (Jurassic Park 3 by Hasbro)

2.7 (10 votes)
Triceratops is one of the most famous and recognizable dinosaurs of all time. Anyone, even a member of the general public who knows absolutely nothing about dinosaurs, will recognize the classic three horns and frill. For over a century, Triceratops has been featured in countless books, movies, and other media where dinosaurs are involved.

Review: Majungasaurus (CollectA)

2.2 (13 votes)

Review by Nicholas Anning (“Brontozaurus”), pictures by Zachary Perry (ZoPteryx)

With the notable exception of Carnotaurus, abelisaurids have not often been made as toys. Lately, though, there has been a move towards renditions of less well-known species, perhaps because toys of the most famous dinosaurs are very common.
