Yes, the skeleton is in... I took a photo, but forgot to put it into Postimage, I will do so and edit it in. It will be happy to go to you after dealing with my dislike of soft rubber, no need to worry about trade at this time. I did edit out found items on my search list, but have to add new.

How do you store your Imperial collection?
I always wonder what the safest way would be, considering that they contain a lot of lead.

For now, I am ashamed to tell you that because my lack of space, they are, for now, in an ungraceful pile. I do intend to display them in a more proper way, someday, because they are precious to me.

Ah! But I won't feel good until I trade it for something else! What would you like?

And here is the 1977 Imperial Tyrannosaurus I received via mail this morning. As you can see, its hands have two fingers and are very different from the black 1977 Megalosaurus' four-fingered hands. That means, to me, that Imperial, even in the 1970's, knew the difference between Megalosaurus and Tyrannosaurus. At least basically.

Interesting, it looks like it is protecting a coin as it was its egg.

I love that you have such a devotion to this brand. Your very first post just blew me away, I have seen and owned Imperial animals all my life and definitely did not know that amazing history of the company.

I remember one Christmas my parents bought a whole slew of the wildlife - zebra, gorilla, giraffe, tiger, lion, wolf, etc etc, I see many of them in this thread. They hid them around the house and that was part of my Christmas, finding them all. I wish I still had any of them, because it's such a precious memory now.

Anyway, I don't have any helpful information, just wanted to say I think this thread is really interesting! I was never much into the dinosaurs, but it's great to see them so appreciated.

Interestting story!
Yet, if you regret not having them anymore, there are a few on Ebay. Maybe you could get a few of them now from there?

Laughing The coin is to show the size of the figure, of course. Laughing

I wish it did! Because Imperial released so many models throughout the years I feel we only have a tenth of them on Toy Animal Wiki. I have seen at least five generations of dinosaurs, a whole line of lizards from 1977, countless wild and farm animals in at least two sizes, and I'm not talking about the two other models of unicorns we don't have yet! This is why I sometimes wish there was more Imperial collectors in the forum. OK I know other members are doing a great job completing the major brands with the new models that are released every year, not question about that! And I'm also very happy that other companies pages get bigger, like Funrise thanks to Jill and Bonnie. But I feel I have a big part of the vintage companies part of the work in my hands. I don't know; maybe I'm the vintage companies expert, here! I'm like the Russians who had Venus all to ourselves back in the 1970's and 1980's, while the Americans putvall their attention to Mars. So, I provided almost everything about Imperial, Soma or NF, just like the Russians provided the very first photos of the surface of Venus. Maybe other members of the forum have other parts of TAW all to themselves as well...
