Hi! Back in 1983, my father bought us a whole line of AAA dinosaurs released in 1978. We played a lot with them and were very popular among our playmates, which explains the rather bad condition which is theirs now. From top to bottom: Iguanodon (back "decorations" missing), Diplodocus (broken and repaired tail; crack visible), Stegosaurus (mouth cracked on the other side), Dimetrodon (toes missing on both sides), Triceratops (paint wears, but less damaged than its pals), Sauropelta (cracked mouth on other side) and finally, the trade mark on Sauropelta's belly (present on all dinosaurs shown) that proves those chinasaur-like animals really are AAA.

This is AWESOME affraid

That must be some of the first ones they made !!! How wonderful that you kept them, they are true rarities Applause Applause

A funny story : One of my friends worked for Bullyland for many years, ever since they began,and she wrote to me about AAA :
I used to work with Bill Chan and even with his father, when we started our HK and China business in 1977/78. At that time they still produced in HK in the skyscrapers, can you imagine?

Yes ! Can you imagine ???? Laughing

Completely unknown series of AAA dinosaurs to me. Shocked I also didn't know we could find a year to some of them. I didn't know still that AAA was active for such a long time. Those are toys from your childhood and there is a sauropelta among them, that's fantastic! Very Happy

The year is not written on them, it is someone who told me they were available at first in 1978. As for the Sauropelta, I identify it as this species, because I think it is the animal that looks like this model the most.

1978 sounds right, since that was the first time Bullyland was in contact with them, and they were manufacturing in an appartment in a skyscraper Laughing

That's always important to know, so animal name is also not written on them. :)

Look at the picture I took of the mark on the sauropelta's belly: we see AAA Made in Hong Kong, but nothing else. And it is the same for each figure.

Do you think this set could be put on TAI or do you think the figures are in too bad condition for it?

Valérie, nothing or anything is in bad condition when it is as loved as your figures. flower
I'll put them on TAI. Very Happy

OK. But in the case of the Iguanodon, Diplodocus and Dimetrodon, you may specify that they are damaged and not in their original condition.

I did it. Valérie, adding simple text is as simple as writing a post on forum. Sometimes, the additional text is very important to help collectors. Let me know if you want editing tools. I can give you the same username you use on forum and provide you a password. :)
