Huh? What's that crap hanging in your closet with your most prized possessions?  :o You should give all that stuff to Goodwill so that more space remains for playsets.

Dino toys on my shelves:

The two bottom shelves have Sinclair dino items.











3rd shelf up is Invicta/British Heritage Museum pieces and cheap dimestore dinos from the '60s (Ajax/Tootsietoy). 4th & 5th shelves contain Carnegie Safari dinos and some other various. Top shelves have Carnegie Safari, Marx Cavemen, Marx and MPC carded dinos from the '60s.

You're right! What am I thinking?! If I got rid of those useless clothes I could buy MORE PLAYSETS! I gotta get my priorities straight. ;)

I always considered the Aurora Prehistoric Scenes not just models but toys as well since you could play with them as well. Here's my Play set of those.

What's the best source for information about Sinclair dinosaur premiums?

 ???

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Your Prehistoric Scenes build-ups are fabulous!

There is this book available on Amazon. I don't own it so I can't vouch for quality.



Mike Fredericks' book has a section on Sinclair which isn't bad. Other than that just google and eBay. I learned what I know over the years in the eBay trenches.

Prehistoric Scenes have a place in my heart for the ones I built when I was a kid. Those are spectacular examples, propman.

Will never forget the neighbor kids older brother having what seemed liked a wall full of Aurora Scenes kits. Quite the impression (obviously)  ;D

Hmmm...I"d love to post some pics of my stuff but can't figure out how. I assumed that you hit the "post image" button and the copy the location of your pic off your computer between the two commands....but didn't seem to work. The preview just showed three boxes with "X";s in them.

Can someone give me the "idiot instructions" on posting pics form my computer? thanks all!
you can PM me if you'd rather or email at japfeif(*at*)aol.com. My name is Jeff.

The link above will lead you to instructions. Don't feel bad, I only recently took the trouble to bumble my way through it.

Marx Prehistoric Bagatelle Pinball Game:



I always wanted one of these as a kid. Picked this one up off eBay a few years ago. This thing is a blast and still plays perfectly. When Marx made a toy, they made it to last.
