Spinosaurus (swimming version, 2017 Soft Model by Favorite Co. Ltd)

4.4 (7 votes)
Japanese company Favorite Co. Ltd surprised collectors in 2017 by announcing two new figures for their ‘soft model’ dinosaur line: Archaeopteryx and Spinosaurus. Although this is the third Spinosaurus released in Favorite’s soft model series, this latest version is their first to reflect the 2014 studies on the animal’s anatomy and posture.

Spinosaurus (The Lost World: Jurassic Park by Kenner)

For over a century, the paleontologists and museums were the guardians of knowledge concerning beasts from the paleo world. Before the dark times…before Jurassic Park. Ok, so maybe not the dark times, but the fact remains that many in the general public owe their knowledge of dinosaurs due to what they learned in Jurassic Park.

​Like all Tsukuda figures from the standard 13 piece set in the 1980s’, this Spinosaurus is made of hollow vinyl plastic in a multi-piece construction moulded into a single piece; hence the evident appearance of seams along the head, extremities, and tail.

Behold Spinosaurus, a ‘marmite’ animal among dinosaur enthusiasts. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny how fascinating this beast is. It’s a creature still shrouded in mystery, much like the statue we’ll be looking at today.

Spinosaurus (Wild Safari by Safari ltd. – 2021 ver)

Given how unstable our scientific understanding is regarding this giant theropod, perhaps it’s understandable Safari would want to offer another option to reflect the creature’s ever-changing image. How well, then, does this new model hold up as an up-to-date iteration?

2021 was an understandably odd year for many, following the tumultuous events of the year 2020, and merchandise companies were no exception.

This model holds a special place for me, being my first museum quality figure, and the one that started off my collecting spree seven years ago. It is a really nice spino model, certainly nicer than the Wild Safari Suchomimus, the Carnegie Baryonyx, or the preceding Carnegie Spinosaur which had that ill fated head of an Allosaurus.

Spinosaurus and Velociraptor (Jurassic Park 2009 by Hasbro)

1.8 (8 votes)
Nearly all of the Jurassic Park 2009 toys were repaints of older toys save for the Allosaurus and the Pachyrhinosaurus. These included the miniature two-packs such as this one, containing hatchling versions of the famous Spinosaurus and Velociraptor.

The Spinosaurus measures 12.5 cm long. It is posed in a crouching stance with its left arm outstretched, as though it’s reaching for some food or fighting with its nestmate.

Spinosaurus Hunting (Desktop Model by Dinostoreus)

4.7 (3 votes)
In addition to their primary line of single-character maquettes, Dinostoreus produces a number of diorama-style pieces which portray prehistoric animals in their natural environment. One that undoubtedly draws attention is this model, featuring the beloved Spinosaurus snatching a snack from churning Cretaceous waters.

At 13 inches in length, this is a pretty generously sized model, falling roughly within the 1:40 range to make it compatible with the Carnegie Spinosaurus, or Papo if you’re not a stickler for accuracy.

Spinosaurus Swimming ( CollectA )

Fashion and dinosaur, what an odd thing to try and weave together in a toy review. If you grew up in the 90’s like me, or is interested in fashion, I’m sure you are familiar with the reign of the supermodels in that decade. In the fashion world the 90’s is often referred to as the era of supermodels for good reasons: models were everywhere.

Greetings dinofans! Since 2019 is shaping up to be the year of the Spinosaurus, I figured it would be a great way to celebrate it by reviewing Safari’s new for 2019 swimming Spinosaurus. The review is longer than I wanted it to be, but with a species that already is one of the most reviewed figure, I wanted to add just a little bit of its history in the toy world.

The Dinosaur Expo 2016 set (Kaiyodo)

4.8 (12 votes)
In the first half of 2016, the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo, Japan, held an event simply named ‘The Dinosaur Expo’ (still ongoing at the time of writing). Though I haven’t been myself, the exhibit seems to focus on recent dinosaur discoveries, with an accompanying set of figures.

Z-Cardz Dinosaurs Series 1 (California Creations)

2.5 (6 votes)

A relic of toy trends from the 2000s, these cheap assembled models make for a decent little novelty item, as long as you’re delicate with them.

I’ve never been much of a “card” collector, so I’ve never followed the hobby closely, but I do recall a time in the early 2000s when 3D card models like Z-Cardz and Star Wars Pocketmodels became all the rage, at least within my own friend circles.
