Hey guys,

Up today for your viewing pleasure is a little line from Bandai called DinoZaurs.

This line was imported from Japan in 2000 where they are known as Dinozone.

The line consisted of transforming dinosaurs, dragons and pre-historic mammals.

The offerings from this line consist of: Basics, Deluxes and boxed figures.

There were 5 boxed figures and also 5 boxed sets consisting of 2 or more figures. Out of the boxed sets, only the Ultimate Dino Styrako 3-Pack contained all new figures. The rest consisted of one or 2 re-issued figures and one or 2 new ones.

All of the Dragozaurs were repaints of the Dino Knights with the exception of Gigano Dragon, Drago Wing and Drago Draconus.

Here are all the figures in the line:

Dino Knights

DZ-1 Dino T-Rex "Dino Tyranno" (boxed)
DZ-2 Dino Brachio (boxed)
DZ-3 Dino Stego
DZ-4 Dino Sabre
DZ-5 Dino Ptera
DZ-6 Dino Tricera
DZ-7 Dino Mammoth

Dragozaurs

DG-1 Gigano Dragon (boxed)
DG-2 Drago Tyran (boxed)
DG-3 Drago Brachio (boxed)
DG-4 Drago Stegus
DG-5 Drago Tigra
DG-6 Drago Dactyl
DG-7 Drago Ceratops
DG-8 Drago Elephas

3-Packs

Ultimate Dino T-Rex 3-Pack
DZ-1 Dino T-Rex
DZ-11 Dino Pachy (new)
DZ-12 Dino Arch (new)

Ultimate Dino Brachio 3-Pack
DZ-2 Dino Brachio
DZ-4 Dino Sabre
DZ-13 Dino Kenty (new)

Ultimate Dino Styrako 3-Pack
DZ-8 Dino Styrako (new)
DZ-9 Dino Toro (new)
DZ-10 Dino Centro (new)

2-Packs

Ultimate Gigano Dragon 2-Pack
DG-1 Gigano Dragon
DG-9 Drago Wing (new), also the only original mold I don't own Undecided)

Ultimate Drago Draconus
Drago Draconus "Dark Dragon" (new)
DG-5 Drago Tigra

The line also contained 5 figures that were non-transformable “action figure” versions of 5 of the Dino Knights. Each one of these had an action feature and were pretty good.

Anyway onto the pics:

Those are some seriously cool figures. I would have thought that given the popularity (and absence of at the time) of the Transformers they might have been more popular. But like Tyroc I've never heard of them. Pretty decent line-up too.

Jeez Stars, it must be frustrating missing that one fig?

Great stuff bud. Thanks for the low down!

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Actually, I don't have a handful of the Dragozaurs, because they are simple recolors of the existing Dino Knights. However, the only mold I don't have is that damn Drago Wing. He wasn't released as a Dino, just as a Drago, so yeah, it kinda sucks.

Thanks Guys!
