There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Get Papo Velociraptors from Dan’s Dinosaurs!

Looking for new places to buy dinosaur toys? Check out Dan’s Dinosaurs!

Dan’s Dinosaurs started in 2009 as a small business specializing in paleontological collectibles. Dan started the company for dinosaur enthusiasts (like us!) with the goal of having a store that carried all dinosaur products in one place. If you live near Mayfield, Kentucky, you can go check out the brick and mortar storefront in person! Be sure to say hi to Dan for us!

They carry a wide range of educational products, high-end models, and fossil replicas. They currently sell well known brands such as: Safari Ltd, Papo, CollectA, Favorite, and Sideshow Collectibles. Many independent artists and other business owners also sell their work through the store and site. They sell and ship both locally and internationally.

We received a Papo Velociraptor (2016 version). This version of Papo’s popular raptor figure is 6″ by 4″ and has paint that is similar in style to Delta and Charlie in Jurassic World. All of the Papo raptors have a similar sculpt, complete with an articulated jaw and yes, they have sickle claws. This figure has more detail and texture than the recent Hasbro and Mattel raptors, and I think the Papo raptors would make excellent additions to collections. Also, Dan is great to work with, and the shipping was very fast. The figure came in good packaging and was undamaged. Dan’s Dinosaurs is an excellent resource for finding dinosaurs to add to your collection!

If you see something that you have to have, make sure enter “Jurassic Outpost” in the “How did you hear about us?” field during checkout to receive a free bonus gift with your order!

  1. You can get them from Amazon too. Papo figures are awesome. I’ve got that Raptor and a T-Rex and they are really nice sculpts. Apparently they have a wide range of different paint jobs though – I wouldn’t go for the purple / rainbow colored ones, but rather chose one with a more JP-like color scheme. Paid about 15 EUR / 17 USD for the Raptor, 30 EUR / 34 USD for the T-Rex. Fair price given the quality.

  2. Yeah,nah.The more I see modern paleo-art, the more I realize I only like JP Dinosaurs. Paleo-art is lame, always trying to be different with TOTAL guesses… Makes my favourite Dinosaurs look ridiculous. Not to forget the feather thing… We literally have skin of several species of Dinosaur that PROVES they had no feathers… But we keep getting EVERYTHING covered in them, including T. rex!

  3. Dan’s Dinosaurs? No way! Overpriced, do not pack or bubble wrap properly, slow shipping and poor customer service. Stay clear of them.

  4. I have been shopping with Dan’s Dinosaurs for years, and could not be happier with my experience. Dan is super friendly and knowledgeable, and I love getting to see all the best models in one place.
