I’ve been a dinosaur fan since I was a little kid. When Jurassic Park got released when I was 12 years old, my whole world got turned upside down. I started asking Jurassic Park toys, at first just to play with, but not long after I grew out of my “playing phase” and started collecting. That’s why the early toys I got are still in pretty good condition.
My latest eBay purchases are these two: Triceratops and Velociraptor from the 1999 Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs line.
I got them from 2 separate auctions and probably overpaid slightly, but you don’t find them MOC that often any more. These are actually my first MOC JP: Dinosaurs, because at that time I decided to invest in the older Jurassic Park toys that were never released here in Belgium, like the Gallimimus, Capture Cruiser and Utahraptor.
Look what recently came in the mail! Finally got my first set from the 2013 “Dino Showdown” line.
This Pteranodon is part of the Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs toy line from 1999. In fact it’s one of the few I own from that line and it’s not even in its package (I’m a vivid “mint in box” collector). It came with a big lot I purchased years ago.
