Indie toymaker Creative Beast Studio has continued to expand the highly-detailed ‘Beast of the Mesozoic’ line of dinosaur action figures. From the deadly Tyrannosaurs to the nimble Velociraptors and the regal Ceratopsians, check out our 2023 holiday gift for the dinosaur lovers in your life.

I was provided with a free Albertaceratops nesmoi figure for review by Creative Beast Studio. The opinions I have shared are my own.

We have listed a bunch of cool-looking dino action figures/collectibles from the ‘Beasts of the Mesozoic’ line in this 2023 holiday gift guide. You can discover them all by visiting the Creative Beast Sudio’s official website.

Tyrannosaurus rex

We have to begin by talking about the King of the Cretaceous, of course. The 1/18th scale figure ($229.99) measures an impressive 27 inches from snout to tail and features 22 points of articulation, interchangeable lower legs, three sets of interchangeable feet, a bendable tail, and an adjustable 2-part base, offering a whole lot of variety when it comes to posing this figure on a display shelf or more.

The T. rex is also available as a smaller 1/35th scale figure ($74.99) that comes in at 14 inches long. There’s even a juvenile version ($59.99) that’s 12-inches long. Both figures have 20 points of articulation.

Lythronax argestes ($89.99)

Here we have the “Gore King” featuring red eyes, distinct coloration, and huge jaws filled armed with serrated teeth. This 1/18th scale figure measures 16 inches long and has 22 points of articulation. It also comes with interchangeable lower legs, a bendable tail end, and a detailed base.

Albertaceratops nesmoi ($89.99)

Heading on over to the Ceratopsian line, we have the Albertaceratops nesmoi 1/18th scale action figure. This dino has been described as one of the most basal centrosaurines and is known from a single complete skull. This particular figure measures 14 inches long and has 20 points of articulation. You can easily move the neck, jaw, tail, legs, feet, knees, and more to pose this ceratopsian the way you want. The joints have a tightness to them so the poses will stick.

It’s definitely one of the most detailed dino figures I have seen. The realistic skin-like detail covers the entire body. You can even see a line of teeth inside the mouth. The colorful paint job adds to the majestic visual of this dino when placed against the included backdrop.

Roaming from Canada to the southern United States in the Late Cretaceous, the Torosaurus featured a 9′ skull – one of the largest ever recorded on a land animal. This 1/18th scale action figure is 18 inches long and has 20 points of articulation. Each side of the frill has two eye-like patterns. The color scheme of this dino was meant to scare away predators or intimidate potential competitors for mates.

Acheroraptor temertyorum ($49.99)

Let’s give the raptors some love! Here we have the 1/6th scale Acheroraptor temertyorum. It’s known as the youngest member of the Dromaeosaur family. This “underworld thief” was the great-great-grandparent of the famous Velociraptor. This particular figure is 12 inches long and comes with a detailed display base, multiple posing rods and attachments, interchangeable closed running toes, a collectible trading card, and a unique background display insert.

Adasaurus mongoliensis ($49.99)

From Mongolia, this particular 1/6th scale dino had menacing plumage and intimidating claws. This 12-inch-long raptor figure comes with a detailed display base, multiple posing rods and attachments, interchangeable closed running toes, a collectible trading card, and a unique background display insert.

Glow-in-the-Dark action figure 3-pack – Velociraptor, Protoceratops, Psittacosaurus ($59.99)

While dinosaurs weren’t known to have glow-in-the-dark bodies (I mean, new research might come out down the line. Who knows!), Creative Beast Studio has gone ahead and created a fun little glow-in-the-dark 3-dino-pack. This collection includes a Velociraptor mongoliensis, Protoceratops andrewsi, and a Psittacosaurus mongoliensis. These figures are 4 inches long and feature 12-15 points of articulation. Individual bases and accessories are included for each figure as well as collector cards. They are so cute!

For those wondering about what’s next for Creative Beast Studio, well, the indie dino toymaker just experienced a very successful Kickstarter Campaign for the upcoming sci-fi Cyberzoic line. This particular series will feature dinosaurs and more creatures with a futuristic sci-fi twist along with a whole original fictional world and accompanying lore. I’m excited!
