When it comes to tubes of miniatures, or “toobs,” Safari Ltd. remains the undisputed ruler. That said, they haven’t released any new toobs in years, and many of their prehistoric-themed ones are really showing their age. Today we’ll be examining one such example, Carnivorous Dinos, consisting of twelve miniatures representing a veritable Who’s Who of Mesozoic (and one Paleozoic) Meanies.

It can be hard being a Jurassic Park dinosaur collector. Sometimes it is because certain figures are rare and expensive. Or sometimes, it is because certain figures are rare, expensive, AND ugly. Some of the most infamous dinosaurs made by Kenner share these three things, and yet somehow, they are legendary among fans.

By now, most dinosaur fans have probably watched the new Netflix series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Like many viewers, it seems, I was pleasantly surprised by the show. I was, of course, equally excited by the new toys being produced by Mattel for the show.

This is the first unpainted resin model kit that I have purchased since I started collecting prehistoric figures. I will start off by saying that Carnotaurus was never really one of my favorite theropods. However, this figure has made me change my mind!

Let me start off by saying this is a review written on impulse. I didn’t expect to write a review today and never thought I would even own the model I’m reviewing. There is a bit of a story here so get comfortable, maybe grab a drink. I think I might need one too, a stiff one.

Carnotaurus (2011 Version)(Carnegie Collection by Safari Ltd.)

The year was 1985. When the world was first introduced to Carnotaurus sastrei, the stock market went wild, the streets were flooded with panicked mobs, and the skies became saturated with an eerie purple tinge.

Alright, maybe that isn’t entirely true. The first big break for our brow-horned friend probably came in Crichton’s bestselling sequel to Jurassic Park, The Lost World, where Carnotaurus prowled the darkness with chameleonic camouflage (speculative, naturally).

Over the last few decades or so, Carnotaurus has become a very popular choice for dinosaur toy lines. This is likely due in part to its unique characteristics that make it stand out from a shelf full of plastic theropods. Since going into business, Schleich has released multiple different versions of this ferocious dinosaur for their various toy lines.

Back in December 2017, the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released and fan favorite Carnotaurus was there in all its glory . . . only to get wrecked by the other fan favorite from this franchise, the Tyrannosaurus rex.

Carnotaurus (Boston Museum of Science Collection by Battat)

The abelisaurid Carnotaurus was a peculiar theropod from Late Cretaceous Patagonia which survived up until the demise of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. At 30 feet long, Carnotaurus was likely a top predator in its ecosystem. The name means “flesh bull” and refers to the two wing-like brow horns protruding above the eyes and the animal’s characteristically short, deep skull.

Hello dinofans, and welcome to another review! I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying spring. Today we will review one of 2019’s new figure from CollectA. Enjoy.

Since making its film debut in Disney’s animated movie Dinosaur way back in 2001, Carnotaurus’s popularity have soared, in fact so much so that it is now among the most famous  dinosaur of all times.

Carnotaurus (Disney’s Dinosaur by Thinkway)

This might seem like Déjà vu, but it isn’t. We recently reviewed a Disney’s Dinosaur Carnotaurus by Mattel here but savvy Disney didn’t put all their dinosaur eggs into one basket. They licensed ‘Disney’s Dinosaur’ to an array of different manufacturers, which means there are more versions of the Disney Carnotaurus than you can throw a family of lemurs at.

Carnotaurus (Jasman)

Described in 1985 the genus Carnotaurus is a relatively new addition to the elite list of truly popular dinosaurs. This abelisaurid is certainly unique enough to warrant notoriety but it has only recently really achieved it. Although toys abounded of the Carnotaurus from the 2000 film Dinosaur as well as some earlier Kenner toys for Jurassic Park, we really didn’t get a good toy of the theropod until 2011 with the re-sculpt of the Carnegie collection model. 

Carnotaurus (Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 5)

4.8 (5 votes)
One of the last South American dinosaurs, Carnotaurus was an interesting theropod that lived in what is now Argentina 70 million years ago. Its most distinctive features are the two horns that sit atop its head. In fact, the name Carnotaurus means “flesh-eating bull”. Ever since being featured in Disney’s “Dinosaur”, a movie from 2000, it has had some slight popularity in mainstream culture.

Carnotaurus (Mini Dinosaur Collection by Schleich)

Schleich is a company that many of us love to hate. Although all Schleich models are of pretty high quality, especially in the detail work, they’re usually too garish and inaccurate for most of our tastes. This makes Schleich a frustrating company to get behind because with a bit more attention to anatomical accuracy they could be a stellar company.
