It is rumored they were made to model the park's life size sculptures of common dinosaurs which are still at the park today. The figures were made in Hong Kong, very crudely done as evident by the shoddy paint job on the pieces. This only adds to their appeal in my book.Presumably the figures did not sell well in the gift shop and were quickly shelved for good. The current owners of the park have no recollection or record of the figures existence. As such, they must have only been available for a very short time. Considered the crown jewel of dinosaur figures, they have only been seen a few times in private collections over the past several decades. It's rare to come across one figure. A complete set is unheard of. There are eight in the series: Corythosaurus, Diatryma, Iguanodon, Moschops, Oviraptor, Plateosaurus, Psittacosaurus, and Tylosaurus. Would be the hallmark of any vintage toy collection or dinosaur collection. Thanks for viewing and please do take a look at my other rare vintage toy listings.
