Quirky, cool, high diversity! I love collections like these! More pictures please!

Two questions:

1. Where does the Rhamphorhynchus in picture 1 come from?
2. How to avail one of those monochrome Jar-Jar-Binks-theropods?!

Thank you Libraraptor, I will dig out the Brumms and Bullyland prehistoric mammals to take some photos to make you feel at home. I am lucky to have a near complete Brumm set and a complete set of the original Bullylands.

The Rhamphorhynchus is a one off kaiyodo museum piece apparently. The wonderful Timpo Rex seems to be like buses on ebay, you wait forever and then 3 come at once. The yellow seems to be the most common variant followed by the rarer grey. The green is the original painted version and the brown is the only one of that colour I have seen.

Look out on ebay.co.uk or ebay.de where they do turn up.

Is the yellow one my old one that we swapped last year? If so, great to see him in good company!

Brilliant photos, love the retro Iguanodons, do you know who made them?

It is, well spotted. Another yellow Rex is currently in Finland awaiting a make over via the wonderful talents of Copper. Will post photos of the fab 5 when the Rex returns.


All the large figures are from the Oldies series made by Favorite. They are truly amazing but the postage costs to the Uk ouch....

The Rhamphorhynchus is a Dino Expo figure.  It must be pretty rare.  Where did you get it and what did it cost you?

That Rhamphorynchus was for sale on eBay from a Japanese seller. I don't remember the exact price but I'm pretty sure it was over a hundred dollars.

Actually it was from a well respected American seller. He bought it from directly from a Kaiyodo sculptor called Takeshi? He also told me it was a one off sculpt, may be as a prototype but was not sure. From memory it set me back $200 but it's amazing, especially the paintwork and totally unique.

What are the skeletons in the sixth and seventh pictures? They look like Acrocanthosaurus skeletons maybe?
What I love about Allosaurus is that it lived an extremely violent life that was rife with broken bones, cuts, scrapes, infections, sprains, and yet it just kept on truckin.

Hi they are both Kaiyodo fukuiraptor specials, one being plastic, the other metal.

I definitely need the other Marolin/Plaho - animals. I do have two Brontosaurus and the Megatherium, but I canīt deny I love all the others, too.

Sorry, I honestly don't know that one.

Some more German figures.... Schleich minis, not very accurate figures but very charming





Quick move away from Germany for a stop over in the UK for some more Retro figures, this time Timpo painted and monocrome figures.... just missing the elusive Stegosaurus.




Now Stateside for the Nabisco prehistoric mammals.




More soon

Really enjoying these photos UK, keep them coming!
