Vault Tales 254 FigureFrenzy Apatosaurus, Char, Poraspis, Archelon, Spinosaurus

Wide range of figures again today. All over the map–prehistoric and modern, big and small, really nice and…less high end. I guess that’s what happens when picks are random…! Jurassic World FK mini Stegosaurus¬†(Walmart) First up, a small mini dinosaur figure from Mattel, an Apatosaurus from the 15-pack from Walmart (and only the first ofContinue reading “Vault Tales 254 FigureFrenzy Apatosaurus, Char, Poraspis, Archelon, Spinosaurus”

Vault Tales 251 Run the Set BattleTop Dinosaurs (unknown maker)

So, today, a very strange one. One which I’ve had for about 15 years now. It’s a set of dinosaur figures that look an awful lot like Dinosaur King figures. Except that they came mounted on battle top (early 2000s…it was a big thing).

I’ll put a different spin on it I guess…it did throw off the otherwise ‘mammals only’ theme for the postContinue reading “Vault Tales 246 FigureFrenzy Bat, Horse, Smilodon, Megaloceros, Theropoda”

Vault Tales 241 Run the Set Unknown Dino Egg Dinosaurs

Well, this is a weird little set of prehistoric animals. Small, rubbery, and with very, very…limited styling. It’s the kind of set that doesn’t really fit with what I’d normally collect. But sometimes there are reasons. I think this’ll be a brief post! These little figures have probably shown up in a whole lot ofContinue reading “Vault Tales 241 Run the Set Unknown Dino Egg Dinosaurs”

Vault Tales 239 Run the Set Kaiyodo DinoExpo 2004

Yet another Japanese set, and this is one of those super fancy ones! I think I’ve mentioned Dino Expo sets before–released in association with annual (or roughly so) events in Japan featuring some kind of prehistoric theme. Many of these sets are short-lived, and are often very desirable collectables. Until recently, most were from Kaiyodo.Continue reading “Vault Tales 239 Run the Set Kaiyodo DinoExpo 2004”
