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.

I am resurrecting this topic to put it back on the first page of this thread. I need it to be there because next week, I will upload my pics to put them in my Contributions page on TAI. So, I need it to remind me to do it.

Thanks for remembering Fernando, I had bookmarked that page but I was not remembering it. It also helped to redesign the entire Tyco page once I've found there a good link about these figures telling what has changed from Dino Riders to Smythsonian Institution series. Now the list is much simpler. Your Dimetrodon (one more) is now [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and that page may serve as template to further ones. Very Happy

After Fernando showed his Dimetrodon to us...and then Valerie also showed these interesting animals,
I found the Tyco Protoceratops on Ebay, and I decided to buy it, to help for our TAY Tyco page with one more model Wink
Although, they are more like action toys, these models look interesting with these yellow, transparent eyes , I like the Smilodon from Taos too :)
And the Protoceratops look`s sweet :)
I`ll try to make photos soon Wink

What a good excuse to get the lovely protoceratops from Tyco! Laughing Yes, they are action figures, with moveable parts, accessories and all. Very Happy Curiously, protoceratops was already very popular and I think it is one of these ceratopsians that is being gradually abandoned and replaced by more bizarre and new discovered ceratopsians. I think it was very popular because of the emblematic fossile showing it fighting with a velociraptor. Quite strange how mediatic it turned once this is normally a world of giants and these two are almost like a turkey trying to hunt an ewe. Laughing Thinking in it, why do major brands do not make a tube or mini dinosaurs inspired in small prehistoric creatures instead of doing all the same we see in large sized series?

I noticed that things changed when the film Jurassic Park was released, back in 1993. When I was a little girl, books and toys represented a lot of prehistoric animals we don't see often in the medias today: Lystrosaurus, Protoceratops, Polacanthus, Iguanodon and Megalosaurus were among them, along with Brachiosaurus and the beloved Apatosaurus-Brontosaurus. In 1993, when Jurassic Park was released, books and toys abandonned those animals to replace them with the JP animals: T-Rex, Velociraptor, Dilophosaurus, Parasaurolophus. Brachiosaurus continued to be produced and talked about, of course. But Megalosaurus, Iguanodon, Polacanthus, Lystrosaurus and Protoceratops were suddenly, totally left behind...
