Tyrantqueen: no, it is a different mamenchi. I have been through several now.

Tylosaurus: you have been collecting since before I was even born! (1986) Although, if you count my childhood years, I guess you could say I have been collecting dinosaur toys since I was about 5. I don't know what my first dinosaur toy was, but I had a couple tyco Dino Riders figures so they were probably some of the first. I also had a few carnegies, a few JP's, some Laramis, a lot of imperials, and many misc mystery brands. Somewhere in my preteens a parent or relative convinced me to give away almost all of my dinosaurs and other toys, but I kept most of the best ones. The only figures that I can remember giving away and now regret are the laramis, an imperial mastodon, and a brandless nothosaur. It was only 2-3 years ago though that I began to pick up on collecting again, and became serious about it.

STORMnl: Certainly, here:

Are that sheets of paper in your displays Seijun? It might be an idea to paint them planks cream white, just to make your display look neater?
Just an thought there :)

Due to the white bases, they do indeedly stand out well Cool

The white paper (regular paper towels actually) are to protect the figure from the wood. Some of these pieces are very old and some will start to stick to any surface they are left standing one (the oldest carnegies are very bad about this). So when the figure is moved, there is a risk that paint will get torn off the feet. With paper towels, even if the figures do stick, the paper will rip first, and any pieces stuck to the figure can be gently soaked off with water. The paper towels also provide a slight cushion for the figures, and help to protect against damage if one falls over, or if I am not careful enough setting one down. I am very paranoid about keeping my figures in top collection, as you can see, lol Additionally, I have tried to arrange the figures so that the only ones receiving any significant amount of sunlight are those that are the least likely to fade in sunlight.

Ahhhh very wise of you to do this then hehe, yeah I understand now :) It looked very interesting, since I never seen an other collection that had paper towels for such a purpose Cool
Thanks for the explanation :)

In most cases I doubt the paper towels are necessary, but after pulling some paint off the bottoms of my old carnegies moving them off a shelf, I decided not to risk it with any figure.

Yeah good point :) My apartment is pretty cool, so far I have never had the issue that paint would leave my model's feet :)

Those are resin battat masters. I was told that they were made for battat to use in the production process, although both of mine became extras and were not used by the company. I with I had more than just the two.

You have a wonderful collection, lots of rare old ones I see. What are the brands on the shelf above the Marx? I recognize most of the others.

Remember you can get a free gallery at ToyAnimal.info if you like, just email me and I can get you set up.

i'm still oogling your dinos, but in the meantime, who is the pinto on the top shelf? At first glance i thought he is the Breyer Classic Shire, a mold i'm very fond of.

I don't know if there are pinto Belgians. This Breyer mold was originally released as a Belgian and painted in the normal light brown color. It was released again in a pinto color and renamed an American Spotted Draft. The model I own is intended to be the Spotted Draft, not the Belgian.

*Face palm!* D'oh! Those dino figures must a a lot smaller than i thought! I thought they were regular sized s othe horses looked big. Laughing
Thank goodness though, i was going nuts, since i knew i'd seen him but couldn't for the life of me figure it out. it never occurred to me they were Stablemates! Embarassed (i am not very good with modern Breyers, esp not the Stablemates.)

Very nice oldies Pam, maybe I began to be a little bit too old for rock'n roll but IMHO those advertising figures are more "fashion" than nowadays ones Cool

I did win the dolphin, waiting for him to arrive. I do have some other marine animals and extant animals. Someday I will post a thread dedicated to them.
