Review: Velociraptor (Jurassic World Epic Evolution, Danger Pack by Mattel)

3.3 (13 votes)

Thanks to my handy clicker-counter and the DinoToyCollector website I was able to tally up 114 Velociraptor toys by Mattel. This includes various repaints, repacks, and toys outside the mainline but not the minis (I forgot them). It’s a rough estimate but it still gives you an idea of how many raptors Mattel has put out there.

News: Upcoming release from Mattel (New for 2024)(Pt.18)

Mattel has unveiled their upcoming Jurassic World Super Colossal Allosaurus!

At over 97 cm/38″ long, I do believe that this will be by far the biggest Allosaurus toy ever to be released by any company.

And like the previous Super Colossal theropods, this one can “swallow” JW mini figures (not included), or presumably other small dinosaur toys one has lying around.

Here are some of the images Creative Beast recently posted of the paint sample for their upcoming Beasts of the Mesozoic Utahraptor. The current projected due date for this big boy is sometime in June.

Whoever claims that feathered dinosaurs aren’t impressive or intimidating is clearly talking through their hat, as my dear old grandmother used to say.

For those of you not into LEGO, LEGO Ideas is a website where users share their builds and, provided the goal of 10,000 supporters is achieved within a time frame, the build has a chance of getting put into production.

Review and photographs by Brontozaurus, edited by Suspsy

I recently visited the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum (FPDM) while on a trip in Japan. The museum is located near the Kitadani Formation, where many of Japan’s dinosaur species have been found and described. It was well worth it, but even before I got to the FPDM, I was encountering Japanese dinosaurs in toy stores.

Review: Sphenacodon (Marx)

Marx Spenacodon

4.4 (16 votes)

The Sphenacodon was part of Marx’ first wave, produced from 1955 onwards. This species is not a very common choice for toy producers. Since the Sphenacodon was of the earliest wave it may not be surprising that it is a comparably weak representative of the real animal, even with its outdated history in mind.

Review: Plesiosaurus (Mini Dinosaurs I by Bullyland)

Plesiosaurus toy

3.4 (15 votes)

This small Plesiosaurus toy belongs to the first line of dinosaur figures produced by Bullyland beginning in 1980, a few years after the German toy company was founded in 1973. The line of seven miniature dinosaurs (and other prehistoric creatures) is informally known as Mini Dinosaurs I, to separate it from a later line of mini dinosaurs released by Bullyland in 1993 (Mini Dinosaurs II), and other separate Bullyland dinosaur lines.

Review: Smilodon with Neanderthal (ANIA by Takara Tomy)

4.6 (20 votes)

The majority of items in my prehistoric collection are purchased online. Schleich abounds at several brick and mortar stores in my neck of the woods, but I’m not a huge consumer of their wares. Safari Ltd. products are sold at Michael’s and the local natural history museum, but the assortment is always woefully limited.
