I wanted to let some of you guys interested in the Marx dinosaur stuff know that my new book is in negotions with the publisher now & should be available (fingers crossed) by late summer, or early fall. The title is "Dinosaur Playsets: an Illustrated Guide to the Prehistoric Playsets of Marx and MPC". The book, as the title says, is fully illustraded with color photos of each & every major dino set by both Marx and MPC, as well as details on the various figures, mold groupings, accessories, and other stuff. The project has been about 6 years in the making & should be pretty cool and hopefully help answer some of the nagging questions on these guys. Obviously the majority of time was spent collecting each set by both companies (no easy task!). THere are also chapters on some of the various knock-off sets & companies, like Winneco/Payton, Toy Street, SDC, and Marx of Miami. I am pretty stoked about it and I hope that some folks may find it useful. There is a real need for this I think, as nothing before has been attempted on this level of completeness. As brutal as the Marx stuff is to accumulate, getting a representative collection of complete sets & items from MPC was murder!Anyway, I wanted to throw this out there and let everyone who may be interested that with no unexpected snags this reference book should be available soon!Thanks all!'J
