The UHA Collect Club Protoceratops is a nice (albeit somewhat rare) figure.

My vote goes to the Authentics Protoceratops

Well we're not voting yet, just putting the list together. ;) But I agree, it will get a vote from me too and I would LOVE to own one some day.

Oh you did this...it's on !!! Give me a few to look around here, but right off, we are missing the dino waurs psittacosaurus...which will never win, but is a figure at least. There is also a yowsies I believe microceratops, although Roselaar could say for sure.

There are at least two versions of it I know of, but yes you are correct, a gorgeous little sitting model.

I think you're thinking of the Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 5 model (which is in a sitting pose). I was referring to this one since it wasn't on Gwangi's list:



(Photo credits to Helge)

There is also the Dinotales Series 6 Protoceratops skeleton and the Collect Club Velociraptor vs Protoceratops fossil, though the latter is exceedingly rare.

Yes, you are correct, I was thinking of the two colors of Kaiyodo dinotales figure. i love that UHA figure too....one of the best protoceratops figures there is !!

Science and Nature Serendipaceratops. Not a real dinosaur but it is based off artwork depicting a Leptoceratops.

Great work so far guys, a lot of models I've never even heard of! Like the T. rex poll however I'm going to leave skeletons out.

I can't find pictures of many of these, I could only find the UKRD and Panosh toys. That said, they were added for now.

This thread is attracting a lot of very obscure suggestions that I feel most of the membership won't recognize. I doubt they will receive many votes without a visual aid so if anyone wants to see something like the Crayola Mold-a-saurus on here please try to provide a picture. Thanks!  :) And keep in mind, we're compiling a short list here, not a complete list.

Can't say for sure unfortunately. Yowies labeled it as 'Ceratopsian dinosaur'. It looks like a Microceratops, but it might also represent a related species. Either way, it too won't win.

It was also pointed out in the psittacosaurus thread that Pannini made a small psittacosaurs as part of their set, however I have never seen one and have no pictures, although the poster in the forum has one.

Based on my search for it the Yowie toy represents Serendipaceratops but was modeled off of Microceratops so that's what I listed it as.

I have one. It was (also?) produced by Mech and I've seen the same sculpt in lots of chinasaur sets since. I might give it a vote for nostalgia ;)
