In 1977 the Royal Ontario Museum released a series of Mesozoic figures in gray and tan plastic.  Later Waipoon figures that were brightly colored and smaller were released.

Stegosaurus



Pteranodon



Parasaurolophus



Lambeosaurus



Albertosaurus ( the first ever made)



Diplodocus (the first ever made)



Chasmosaurus (the first ever made)



Stenopterygius (the first ever made)

Very nice, stoneage! :) I still have to get the set, eventually. Oh, and thanks also for showing the ventral side of the Laggania and Olenoides, I don't remember if I've ever seen them from below, at least not on high quality photos. :D

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a T-rex by Krentz? My friends all have Sideshow, I must make amends.

I'm surprised you don't already have them.  Well I don't think they should be too hard to find.  Their nice figures, colorful with nice detail.  Their also a good size with the larger figures being 12.5 cm.

Somehow I just didn't, yet, alas. :-\ But as far as I know they should still be available from the Royal Ontario Museum? Thinking of it, I should perhaps get them before it's too late. I've had the experience more than once before that when I postpone buying something I like it's been retired by the time I finally decide to get it.

I love these primitive creatures done by ROM. Last year I actually tried getting these Burgess Shale critters through the ROM online store. But they wanted to charge me a 90 bucks shipping fee to Brazil. That's crazy, not even the biggest lots on Ebay have such expensive shipping cost, so I contacted them to see if it was right and everything, tought that it was an error on the website calculator, but nope, that was right! So, I gave up right away, couldn't throw such money away in shipping costs. I hope I find them on Ebay someday, with a reasonable cost and shipping fees. By the way, the photos are really great, I love when people provide HQ pics of models, because despite the awesome Dinosaur Collector Website done by Randy the page lacks good images. Thanks to DTB and DTF we collectors get to see what we will actually be hunting.

I live just outside of Toronto (where ROM is located) and have a membership pass at the ROM also. Next time I go down, I don't mind buying a few sets and sending them out to people for the cost of the set plus actual shipping cost (not inflated ROM rate). For those of you interested, PM me.

The recasts came in paint your own, painted and solid plastic.  No ichthyosaur and figures seem slightly smaller.

Ever I have thought that Burgues Shale figures are one of the best collections figures that I have seen.
[Off Nick and Eddie's reactions to the dinosaurs] Oh yeah "Ooh, aah", that's how it always starts. But then there's running and screaming.



{about the T-Rex) When he sees us with his kid isn't he gonna be like "you"!?
