I just bought a vintage Marx dino set and think there are some DFC dinos, but I'm not positive. The original Marx Brontosaur had circle indents on the bottom of it's feet. Does anyone happen to have one of each handy? The set I got had 2 of these cavemen and they say DFC 1981 on them, and the Trachodon looks like a smaller version of a Marx. there's also an unmarked Ankylosaur that is mud brown with no sheen, definitely not Marx or MPC. There's also a smaller version of a Plateosaur in yellow with no sheen, smaller than an MPC, and the wrong shade. I know it's a combination of at least 3 sets. I figured out the Marx and DFC, that was easy, but the other has me stumped. If someone responds and can leave a message, I'll find a way to send the photos of these oddballs. I'm pretty familiar with the better known makers, but nobody's perfect. If anyone can tell me how to anonomously post them somewhere, I'm willing to try it. I also have a Soldier Bear Deluxe Crusader Knights Castle Playset that I can't seem to find anywhere. I tried all the bigger toy soldier collector sites and sent the pictures of that over a dozen times. No matches. You don't spend hundreds of thousands to make that many molds for a 22 x 30 x13 high castle with inner and outer walls and not make them.... that's just dumb... Help with either is greatly appreciated.
Thanks Randy! I am a big fan of your website. Most of the smaller dinosaurs are Timmee knock offs, but they all say DFC on them. The one small Triceratops figure looks like a flattened Tootsietoy Triceratops. The playmat that came with the set is not the one shown on the box - it actually appears to be the playmat from the DFC Dragonriders of the Styx playset. It makes me wonder if this is the playmat that actually came with this set or if the person I bought it from had both playsets and switched the mats. The Sinclair recasts are the reason I don't trust ebay auctions for Sinclair Worlds Fair dinosaurs unless they are MIP. I am missing the rafts.
The larger marx looking figures are Sinclair don't know who made the flats. There also some Timmee knock offs? First time i have seen the playmet for this set. I seems to me there should also be some card board rafts for the cavemen.
