Does anyone know what set this protoceratops came from? It's about 4 inches long and is made from some bronze like metal. It reminds me of the Alva dinosaurs but i don't think it is but maybe it's another museum figure from around that time.

Reminded me of SRG, but they didnt make a Protoceratops...

As to the T.rex, I only say: "Furaffic Fark"  ^-^ ^-^

please ID this. thanks. (i hope someone can still ID the figure Above)


I came across this while browsing the thread and burst out in laughter because that figure was so unexpected.
It seems no one identified it yet so here I am doing that now.

It is a figure of Scary Monsters (named after the David Bowie album), the stand ability of Diego "Dio" Brando (you can see "Dio" written on its back, forming the stripes) from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure part 7: Steel Ball Run.

The figure was originally a keychain released by Banpresto in 2011 and part of volume 9 of the Stands Collection Figure Key Holder series.




Scary Monsters itself is supposed to be a Utahraptor.

That's a hilarious figure.

Now, is that Invicta Baryonyx a rare colour, or is it just massively sun-bleached or something? ???

The feet seem to be in the normal original green. The towel covers the front foot so one doesn't know if the fish is still with it. Strange.

I recently got this Oviraptorosaur egg figure (left) off eBay. It seems that there's a bit of confusion between this and the Baby Louie (Beibeilong) produced for the Indianapolis Children's Museum.


There are also some markings on the back, including this signature and date carved into the shell.


If anyone has any info on this thing, I'd really appreciate it.

The oviraptor in egg was part of Safari's Dino Discoveries line which was more or less an assortment of dinosaurs that weren't part of the Wild Safari dinosaurs. It included Dinosaurs of China figures, the standalone velociraptor, and a couple others. I don't know much about the sculpt itself other than it was based on a resin model. My local museum used to have the resin version in their dinosaur exhibit.

Is that one still commonly available or is it rather rare?

Thanks @Pachyrhinosaurus , that's pretty interesting.

@Libraraptor No idea about the rarity, I've only ever see 2 for sale, and I bought both. I thought the second one I saw had better paint, but I was wrong. If anyone wants the second one, I'll probably list it here soon.

I found another bunch of dinosaur toys in my storage unit. I probably got these at thrift stores, and I'm not too hopeful that I'll be able to identify them, but I thought I'd put them here because anything you can tell me about them would be interesting.

It's not so easy to find but not that impossible.
Just to be patient over Ebay.. ;)

I think the Ankylosaur is from a range like a Walking with Dinosaurs. I'm pretty sure I've one in the attic, I'll check over the weekend and get back to you.

I have that Ankylosaur too and except from the eyes it is even quite decent.  No clue what brand it is.

@brontosauruschuck  I don't know who makes that ankylosaur, but it's been sold by all kinds of companies, including in a big "Animal Planet" branded bin at Toys R Us. There's one in my house, and it's had its back cut open to plant a succulent (since re-potted).


The Chasmosaurus is either a JPIII mini by Hasbro or a knockoff thereof.

Thanks for the heads up Haliochoeres! I like when you look for dinosaur flower pots online and 9/10 of them are old dinosaur toys that someone cut a hole into. I know somebody makes actual ceramic pots shaped like dinosaurs. Some of my customers have been able to find them, and have submitted pictures to our website, but I've never seen them for sale.

Oh, except some at Rite Aid that had fake plastic succulents glued into them.

The last picture, the yellow Brontosaurus, can be found in almost every package of cheap dinosaurs out there today. Its a knockoff of the original Marx Brontosaurus from the 50s.
Got Brachauchenius?
