PostSubject: PANINI Dinosaur Models - Early 1990s UK   Sun Feb 05, 2012 10:56 pm

I just thought I'dpost some photos of these little cute dinosaurs which I collected with a British monthly childrens factual dinosaur magazine back in the early 1990s. I used to buy the publication which came with a different dinosaur model and a paper card stand. I lost the stand display and the dinosaurs were stored in a box with some polystyrene foam bits. I have recently found the box and opened it and for some reason some of the poly has sort of stuck to the dinosaurs or melted on almost - maybe its the gasses in the plastic but it all easily rubs off thankfully.

Anyway here they are....

They are from Panini. Most of them are copies of other China models.
If you ever want to trade them, pm me!

They are beaytyful, they are cute, they are exceptional and rare. They area large set, - and they have a history for you Very Happy
What more can you ask for ? CONGRATULATIONS cheers

Yes, I always warn against storing those "chips" !!!!!
My poor Schleich elefants all have white spots from that nasty material, and as you say, it is almost impossible to get off Mad Mad Crying or Very sad
For shipping or such they are ok, but after some years they will melt into the model. Shocked

If somebody wants to use foam chips to store in, he/she must make sure each model is well protected in a plastic bag too !!!

You're right, they came with a dinosaur publication made by Panini. Thanks for reminding me. The plastic thing does come off but they would need to be washed or something. I had forgotten about these for ages and yes I may trade them in for some other models at some point....will let you know. They do give me fond childhood memories of rushing to the shop during my school lunch hour to pick up my lovely magazine and toy. This was between 1991 and 1995 when I was about 11-15! lol

Very Happy

A great story and a great collection. Glad you found something that brought back such great memories. I love finding things I have packed away and remembering the good times.
