Cladoselache (Kaiyodo series 1)
Ah, Cladoselache. The first shark! How exciting. Up for review today is the first rendition of the first shark, made by Kaiyodo.
Cladoselache is believed to be a very agile and swift predator – this is very well represented in this replica. The smooth (and scaleless) skin, the large keels, and the thick caudal fin are all features of this replica that point to it being a swift predator.
Spinosaurus (2009) (Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd)
In 2009, Safari released what they are hoping will be the definitive replacement of their original Carnegie Spinosaurus figure. The original, which bears the classic “Sail-backed Allosaurus” appearance, has seen two variants in color. This latest model seems to have adopted a decidedly natural set of hues, looking rather appropriate for a large predatory dinosaur.
Huayangosaurus (Dinotales series 7 by Kaiyodo)
Pteranodon longiceps (Bullyland)
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)
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.
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.
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. This corresponds to a 1:40 scale.
Plesiosaurus (Dinocrats by Toyway)
This review is dated 2009 but that’s not really true at all. Sure, I clicked the publish button back in 2009, but the only content was some photographs and a promise to update the review properly later. A decade passed… no review. Still, the years continued to roll by… no review.
