Vault Tales 154 ToyTrio Iguanodon, Thescelosaurus and Desmatosuchus

Time for an all-prehistoric, all-herbivore, all-archosaur reptiles figures trio. From a weirdly wide range of companies and styles… GeoWorld Jurassic Hunters Thescelosaurus So…here’s a first for the blog I think–a figure from the GeoWorld Jurassic Hunters series. This is a weird series, starring a fossil hunter out of Italy branded as “Dr. Steve” that cameContinue reading “Vault Tales 154 ToyTrio Iguanodon, Thescelosaurus and Desmatosuchus”

Vault Tales 146 ToyTrio Amargasaurus, Masiakasaurus, Monolophosaurus

Another ToyTrio, and it features more dinosaurs…except, they’re less common species…and definitely less common figures. Most of which are probably made by better companies but they mostly amuse me. FameMaster 4D Puzzle Amargasaurus First up, possibly the least uncommon species and (for once) least uncommon company–another of the 4D puzzle figures from FameMaster. This timeContinue reading “Vault Tales 146 ToyTrio Amargasaurus, Masiakasaurus, Monolophosaurus”

Vault Tales 143 ToyTrio Tawa, Coelophysis, Tyrannosaurus

So today’s trio is going to be a variety of dinosaur figures, all relatively recent releases! As it works out…it kind of acts as a very basic family lineage of the theropod (meat-eating) dinosaurs. If I arrange them in the right order…which I did. It’s also why it felt more right to put them togetherContinue reading “Vault Tales 143 ToyTrio Tawa, Coelophysis, Tyrannosaurus”

Vault Tales 139 Capcom Gigantoraptor

Today’s figure is from Capcom, released for a Japanese Dino Expo in 2009 (and available only then). For many of their runs, starting from around 2003 or 2004, maybe earlier, Dino Expo figures were produced by Kaiyodo–some were releases or box sets of pre-existing Dinotales figures, a few were unique additions to the Dinotales line,Continue reading “Vault Tales 139 Capcom Gigantoraptor”

Vault Tales 134 Safari Shunosaurus

So today we’re going to look at one of the smaller sauropods made by Safari–the Shunosaurus from 2016, item number 305529. It was released in a pretty great year of Safari figures of unusual prehistoric animals actually, and I think as a lot they kind of got overshadowed by the surrounding years also featuring someContinue reading “Vault Tales 134 Safari Shunosaurus”
