Does anyone know about Tyco? Founded in 1926 by John Tyler and his family, the toy manufacture started by making little trains and railroads. From 1942 to 1945, because of World War II, Tyco produced sets of figures representing the U.S. Army and Navy. Since 1997, Tyco is now a division of Mattel.

In 1988, Tyco released a line called "Dino Riders". It was a set of action figures and prehistoric animals equipped with guns and armors. Here are the only two animals (without their accessories, which I do not have) I have from this set: the Megatherium (giant sloth) and the Placerias (ancient herbivorous reptile).

They are wonderful Very Happy Look, - glass eyes Wink

I suppose they can move their legs, and the Giant Sloth his neck too ?

Thankyou for the pictures, and for telling about them and their creator sunny

Yes, they are articulated! And we can make the Megatherium stand on its rear feet, as well as aiming the nose downwards.
