Thanks. Its interesting coming back and seeing how my Marx collection has grown since I last posted; I'll have to post an update picture sometime.

My latest arrival is an original 1988 Carnegie Allosaurus. My first of the original release Carnegies.

Don't see those original paint jobs around too often! Nice find.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

Thanks-- it's always exciting to find less-common pieces.

After nearly two years of collecting, this is where my Marx Prehistoric collection stands now:


With the addition of Yangchuanosaurus, my Dinosaurs of China set is now complete.


Also new acquisitions, these two were made by Rush Studios. Both are hollow and made of latex that cured hard and feels like resin.



The metoposaur looks very similar to the one in my local museum (see here) and it would not surprise me if it was also made by Rush Studios.

Nice figures I guess the reptile with the appearance of a crocodile is a kind of phytosaurus, on the other hand the prehistoric amphibian is for me an unknown. Anyway both spectacular figures are seen.

The metoposaur and phytosaur are so cool! I was able to get a little metal figure of a Microhaplolepis from Rush Studios, but I definitely missed these or I might have tried to outbid you! Congrats.

That looks interesting. I didn't know they made anything in metal. Neither were actually listed as having been made by Rush studios, but I follow the seller and recognized the metoposaur from Malcolm's photos on v1.

I just received one of my most sought-after figures-- the Battat Diplodocus! I only discovered Battat a decade ago upon reading through the forum and as much as I wanted their dinosaurs, they notoriously went for more than I was willing to pay at the time on eBay. My first Battat dinosaur was the Amargasaurus that I bought in 2014, prior to the Terra revival. I may still be missing a few, but my collection is finally home to the legendary Battat Diplodocus!





This photo was taken a few months ago. I recently got an original acrocanthosaurus which has taken the place of its Terra counterpart.

In addition to the toys, I also have a resin master of the dilophosaurus:

My congratulations, you have real works of art. Battat's dinosaurs are some of the finest dinosaur figures made in the toy and collectibles industry and are truly coveted by many of the DTF members.
