I know, like everything else, it's not everyone's cup of tea. Starlux is a French company that produce many lines of toy figures. They are old, many circa 1960 -70"s. The material used to make the figures are brittle, making it hard to find figures that are intact. The paint is also fragile, they chip off easily. Starlux released many figures, from Soldiers, modern animals, to prehistoric. I don't think they were widely available outside of Europe, but I maybe wrong. I was first introduced to the line many years ago when a friend gave me a Starlux Styracosaurus to add to my ceratopsian collection. Out of curiosity, I did a search and found that there is a long list of prehistoric figures from them. Unfortunately, I could not locate any source …until I found the joy of evil-bay! Even then, it was hard to find any Starlux figures and if they do show up, command some serious dollars! So it was a slow attempt to build up the collection. When my interest in prehistoric mammals ( and other non-dinosaurs) developed, I quickly gave up trying to acquire the dinosaurs and instead concentrated my effort ( and $$$) in procuring the mammals, fish, and other non-dinosaurs. I'm an opportunity, so I still occasionally get some dinosaurs if I find a good deal. Starlux, to date, has some of the most diverse list of prehistoric mammals ( and other non-dinosaurs) ever assembled and produced. Many species were produced for the first time and, unfortunately, never been seen/produced again. The list is astonishing! Now we know what footprints CollectA/Procon is following. The sculpting is obviously very retro, and some are just plain scary! But there are some real rare gems in the collection like many of the mammals, fish, amphibians, and birds. For those of you who always scream accuracy, well this line is definitely not for you. For those who appreciate the vintage, the unique style, well this line is a must have to add to your collection. To date, my collection is very small. As I already mention, they are hard to find this days and command top dollars when available. It is my hope one day I may be able to complete the mammals and other non-dino animals.
