4.7 (24 votes) Seventy-one million years ago what is now Alberta, Canada, would have been located next to the Western Interior Seaway with various coastal habitats including swamps, marshes, tidal flats, lagoons, and estuaries. Familiar faces would have swum the aquatic ecosystems, including gar, bowfin, and sturgeon that are all present in North America’s freshwater habitats today. On land there was a different cast of characters, however.  Familiar dinosaurs like Pachyrhinosaurus, Ornithomimus, and Saurolophus, among others. And the apex predator, unsurprisingly for Cretaceous North ..read more

Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Primal Attack Sound Strike by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy Due to the horrors of Covid-19, I, EmperorDinobot had to stay away from stores for a while during early 2020, which was when the bulk of the Jurassic World: Primal Attack animals came out. Mattel has given us sooooo many figures that it became hard for me to keep track of them. The app also became kind of useless in this pursuit, but more of that later. It was only recently that I noticed I was missing the other Sound Strike Pteranodon. I thought I had bought it at some point, but it turned out that I never did. Luckily, one arrived in one ..read more

Suchomimus (Prehistoric Animal Models by PNSO)

The 1990s and 2000s were a boon for paleontology in the southern hemisphere. New discoveries from South America, China, and Africa were shaking up the paleosphere, reinvigorating awareness and understanding of dinosaurs, old genera and new. One of the notable new discoveries was Suchomimus tenerensis (crocodile mimic of the Ténéré Desert), a large Cretaceous theropod uncovered from the Elrhaz Formation in Niger, Africa. Officially described by Paul Sereno and his team in 1998, Suchomimus helped unite certain enigmatic and peculiar theropods like Spinosaurus and Baryonyx into the single clade ..read more

Pteranodon (Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Sound Strike by Mattel)

Review and photos by EmperorDinobot, edited by Suspsy The thing that strikes me, Emperor Dinobot, as both creative and boring, is Mattel’s never-ending releases of the same mold with only slight differences. These Pteranodon toys are all the same, and the Camp Cretaceous Primal Attack Sound Strike version is no exception. It does have some differences from the first release, the Roarivores one seen here, but in reality, they are just small features that build up on the existing mold. This toy measures 8 inches by 16 inches and is the second “Bananahead,” which I have named so for the yellow ..read more

During the 1950s and 1960s, interest in paleontology was starting its climb back to mainstream interest, and companies like Marx took the initiative to start producing dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures in small plastic fashion for the first time, encouraging kids to create prehistoric worlds in their own homes. Multiple Products Corporation (MPC), evidently recognizing Marx’s success, joined the new prehistoric toys bandwagon and released a couple waves of their own figures – albeit most of which were inferior imitations of Marx’s own designs. In 1962, however, MPC’s second series of ..read more

Today, dinosaurs have become a permanent fixture in our pop culture, from toys to multi-million blockbuster movies, dinosaur seems to be everywhere. But there was a time when dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals were confined to the sterile walls of museums, a scientific curiosity that were outside of the mainstream. With the staggering and often overwhelming toy and models choices we now have, it’s hard to imagine a time when dinosaur and other prehistoric animals toys were so rare or almost non existent. The emergence of Marx figures in the 1960’s would change all that and would pave th ..read more

Velociraptor “Blue” (Jurassic World: Ferocious Pack by Mattel)

Review and photos by Prehistory Resurrection, edited by Suspsy Mattel has made more ”Blue” toys (as well as other Velociraptors) than you can shake a stick at. Today, we will be taking a look at one of several incarnations of the beloved raptor: their Jurassic World Dominion Ferocious Pack version. Blue is the fourth and final figure forming part of the first wave of the FP line to be reviewed; the other three figures being Dsungaripterus, Miragaia, and Moros.  Like those ones, Blue comes in an open package. The advantage of this is that you can check to see if t ..read more

Knockoffs are an ever-present element of the toy industry, and a persistent quandary for collectors. A knockoff is a product which imitates another, original product, usually without copying it precisely in order to slyly evade copyright infringement. Naturally, this is a rather sneaky practice that plenty of artists and designers might (or actively do) take umbrage with. Of course, some customers are less discerning about their purchases, or unconcerned with the matter in general; but there are questions worth asking about the matter. Where does one draw the line between inspiration and plag ..read more

Haoran is enjoying himself as always when relieving the itches along his colossal body by rubbing against the coarse bark of a far more colossal tree. Seeking to scratch both the top and the bottom of his neck at once, he squeezes it between two thick, knobbly branches and grunts with pleasure at the sensation. But when he tries to withdraw his neck . . . it is stuck. Firmly wedged between the branches, it is. Annoyed, Haoran attempts to pull free, but the branches do not give. He pulls again. The branches do not give. He snorts angrily and pulls again, and again, and again. The branches stil ..read more
