Does anybody know anything about that Spinosaurus in the banner? I've never seen it before.

It's the 2012 Bullyland Spinosaurus. It hasn't been released yet, that I am aware of.

Thanks!

I've had a look at mine, and it is indeed a rather overlarge keychain, or, at least, it has a keyring attached to it. The stamp on the bottom says "Equity Toys", whoever they are/were.
my figure doesnt have a keyring attached to it. (nor does it glow in the dark). yes, the stamp on the belly says "Equity Toys tm & c 1997 U.C.S. & Amblin made in china"

I have one as well..it was released as a keychain and glow bones piece..and I guess as a regular figure.  They released a LOT of these little guys..I have the Rex and he was also made into a cake topper. The Triceratops they made was also turned in a large detailed rubber eraser..lol

Hey Sean,
Yeah it has been released....I have had mine for about 2 weeks and it is quite decent, but the open and close feature of the jaw is like the Gigantosaurus, not nearly as well done as the Papo's. It can be found at DeJankins right now  ;D

Then it really just demonstrates how bad Bullyland is at getting the word out about themselves. Everyone knows when Papo, Safari, CollectA and Schleich are available.

Agreed.....I was very surprised that he actually had it already with no heads up....

I think I know who that is..he was interviewed a little for the Dinosaur Shows with Eric and Gary and had some cassettes put out called Dinosaur Talks right ? His wife has some awesome talent..I can't really paint well at all..heh

I am not familiar with the Dinosaur Talks.  Edwin Colbert served as curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History.  He wrote many paleo books, and Margaret illustrated them. He died in 2001 at age 96, and she died in 2007 at age 95.  Digging fossils must be healthy work.

Here's a pic of the cover :


Don Glut's Fossil Records apparently did a cassette talking with him and couple other paleontologists.

Don also has a nice Colbert library : http://donglutsdinosaurs.com/my-edwin-h-colbert-library/

I'm sorry to say I don't own any of them. :/

Why not post a couple pics of it in the 2012 figures section ? ;D

Anyone got more Info on these?
http://www.ebay.de/itm/AUSTRALIA-DINOSAUR-COLLECTION-GIFT-PACK-of-5-REPLICAS-/160660421217?pt=AU_AnimalCollectables&hash=item25681b7a61

I have them.  Small, decent figures (Serendipacertaops may not be a ceratopsian, but they thought it was). About the size of a Dinotale or Safari toob figure. THey are made by Discover Science, a company that specializes in animals form Australia and New Zealand.

For those in North America, you can find them at TGF Toys http://www.tgftoys.com/Australian-Dinosaurs-Set-A78285.htm

Basic price is a little higher, but I bet shipping is less!

Hi guys, who made these dinosaurs?  Picked them up as a kid in the 80s, all 3 came with a small dinosaur book which I have sadly lost :(

Those are made by several companies. Still today. They are however based on molds by MARX.

Thanks for the info CityRaptor.  I had a feeling they were MARX molds (googling earlier) but wanted to double check.

Any idea who made this unmarked statue? It is made of plastic. And hollow. (The holder is not a part of the statue, its just standing behind it)

Any "Big Bang Theory" viewers here? Well, there's a Tyrannosaur figure in the background in Sheldon & Leonard's apartment. Can anybody identify which brand it is?
