PostSubject: The Extinct Collection   Sun Aug 05, 2012 4:51 am

Here is my collection of extinct creatures, primarily dinosaurs and a few mammals. These pictures do not include my kaiyodos, and a few other misc figures that I dont have room to display.

Wow! I love the dragon type things from Avatar, what brand are they?
Great collection Pam, lots of wonderful models, the prehistoric animal display looks intriguing.

The avatar toys are official movie merchandise made by Matel. They do have some design problems, such as:
- the small flying banshee/dragons were sculpted without any legs for unknown reasons
- the bigger flying creature has back legs, but they are not articulated!
- the wing patterns are only on the tops of the wings
- all 4 figures come disarticulated, and it was bloody hard to put them together! The lion-like creature was hardest, because I kept getting the 4 front legs mixed up. There was nothing to indicate which legs were supposed to go where!

Overall, they seem very cheaply designed, considering how "big" the movie was. Also considering how big the movie was, its very surprising that they were the ONLY toys or models made of those creatures (so if you want models of the Avatar creatures, you dont get any other choices). On top of this, they seem to have been made more for older kids or adults (14 years +), but marketed towards children younger than that. They are still neat figures despite their flaws, and I am happy to have them. The sculpting quality is very nice on the parts that were included, and once articulated they are very sturdy and tough, but I think they could have been made a lot nicer if more effort or money had been put into it.

Hah nice Dino collection to see here again Cool Looks like More Dino collections seem to be popping up here at STS cheers cheers cheers
It would be nicer if you could make them Tyco Dino-Riders complete with their original amour, they look somewhat incomplete now silent

It would also be cool to see a closeup of your Invicta & Battat collections, as for them Kaiyodo / Colorata's, that would be nice to see too :)

Someday I think it would be cool to operate a small "from home" dinosaur toy museum and gift shop. The collection I have now is from only 2 or 3 years of collecting. In another 5-10 years I think I will have enough to really call it a museum! I don't know a whole lot about dinosaurs themselves, but I learn all I can about the history of dinosaur toys and models.

Such a great collection Seijun. And I love the way it is presented and the figures are spaced out. Very uncluttered and elegant. Nice!

Thanks Pam for the info, I don't think I'll be getting any of them then.

Thank you. The reason for the spacing is because I never like to have two figures touching each other. Some of the painted figures are old, and will "stick" to anything they are left in contact with. Additionally, it makes it easy to move figures around without damaging any of them if they are not touching other figures.

It is incredible how beautiful, impressive and large is your collection with only 2 years! What a Face
Very tempting for someone that decided not to collect dinosaurs! affraid
Thanks for showing and for telling me so clearly how much space they can take... now I feel a little happier with my decision! Laughing
Magnificent! cheers

I am thinking of looking for a house soon because I have about reached the limit on how many toys a small 2 bedroom apartment can hold!

Only 2 years, really is that all? heh! I thought you were collecting them for at least 10 years! silent
I have been collecting since 1976 the day I was born, kinda awesome really, the first one isn't really a dinosaur, but back then even the Imperial Dimetrodon that was given to me was called a dinosaur by most people, even that it was wrong nobody cared even I don't care lol : Laughing

It was a gift from my parents and I still have it, my second was an Invicta Glyptodon, a monochrome one, the owner of the Brisbane Museum gave it to me Cool This was in 1981 during my preschool trip to the place and yes I still have it also :)
