Nearly all the carnivorous Dinosaurs were Theropods. And almost all of the Theropods were carnivores.
As a family of Dinosaurs they stretch from the early Triassic Period to the very end of the Dinosaurs' reign in the Cretaceous period. From the little Coelophysis at one meter tall, nine feet long and 80 pounds in weight........
(JP.04 Coelophysis attacking a Carnegie Maiasaura)
to the enormous Giganotosaurus at 45 feet in length and seven tons.
The class includes the Allosaurus, the Spinosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus Rex. In addition there are the Oviraptors and the presumably vegetarian Therinzinosaurs. Quite a group! They were all bipedal and shared similarities in body shape and (except for the Ceratosaurus with four and the Tyrannosaurs with two) all had three claws on their "hands".
Whether ravaging the Jurassic movable feast
(Safari (opens new window) & Carnegie Dilophosaurs attack a baby Carnegie Apatosaurus [above] and [below] Carnegie Sinraptors assault a Carnegie Stegosaurus) or simply eating their way through to the bitter end and then (a pack of Carnegie Deltadromeus take down a Carnegie Parasaurolophus)
arguing over who has the rights to what's lying around. The Theropods were the apex predators wherever and whenever they were around.
(Carnegie Acrocanthosaurus question the Deltadromeus over who eats)
If, however, you are still interested in Theropod Dinosaur toys just keep reading....
From the Dilophosaurus, made famous by the original Jurassic Park movie
to the very last of the Dinosaurs. Numerous Theropods are (currently) considered to have had feathers which has resulted
in some extremely colorful Dinosaur toys.
Unfortunately these "feathered friends" tended to be rather small and as a result they have been made in a much larger scale (1/4 to 1/20) than are most Dinosaur toys (1/30-1/40). The Carnegie Microraptor (second from right) for instance is ~1/4 scale.

The Beipiaosaurus (Above) was a feathered Therinzinosauroidea Theropod with a beak, teeth, feathers and long claws. It was probably/possibly a vegetarian but I wouldn't trust it near my hot dog. It was about seven feet in length making it one of the larger of the feathered Dinosaurs.
Two Carnotaurus (Carnegie) here seen attacking a (Safari) Styracosaurus (both from 1996) demonstrating that hungry Theropods will try to eat meals with built-in forks. They say it tastes like lobster. Mmmmm....
