Welcome to my Dinosaur Tribute Page. Here you
will find a lot of cool stuff, all pertaining to prehistoric creatures, with a touch of humor added.
I have been a big fan of dinosaurs since I was a little kid (I go
into a lot more detail on that in the "Who Writes This Stuff?" page, if you want to take a gander).
I have collected dinosaur toys since I was a wee lass, and that is
mostly what this site focuses on. There are a handful of sites online that review toy dino-figures, but I include a few (photos
included) that some of the others have omitted. I also offer my thoughts and feelings on some that they have gone in-depth
on. I may not get as technical as they do, however, so for stuff like 'how many molds were used' and 'first and second issues'
and other technicalities, I recommend you visit those other sites (check out my Paleo-linkage page for those). The three best ones, in my opinion, are The Dinosaur Collector, Paleo-Plastic, and Realm
of the Rubber Dinosaur. The fellas that have put together these sites are a lot more knowledgeable than I am.
The main purpose of this page is to discuss dinosaur figures and model
kits in my own words, and maybe cause readers to chuckle a little at my dorky brand of humor. I'm an extensively nostalgic
kinda gal, you see, so the dinosaurs I review hold a special spot in my heart, as most of them are from my childhood. I strive
not to just parrot what other dino-figure reviewers have said here, but to offer my own "slant" on the world of dino-collecting.
Of course, I'd like to add other dino-related stuff as the site matures.
I am thinking of a Dino-Art page featuring some artwork of mine (recent and from childhood). For now, I am busily working
on rounding up all my toy dinosaurs to get photos of them for the review pages.
So...have a "Paleo-riffic" time!
I photograph my dinos with a Fuji Finepix S3100 digital camera.

Well, I thought I would drop in and say that I have
not abandoned this site--just been really busy, so no updates for awhile. I have acquired some new dinos, however,
so I will try to get them posted ASAP.
There's a new site called Kaboodle, where
people can show of their collections of stuff. I have opened an account there with even more dinosaur figures on it. You can check it out here.
I have just about completed my set of Rice / Wheat
Honeys premiums. I'll be putting up a page about them in the Reviews section soon. I haven't had a lot of time to work on this site lately, but decided I had better do something before Tripod
takes it down due to inactivity...
The Marx and MPC review pages are done!
Please note that my e-mail address has changed. I had trouble with
the Lycos e-mail, so I ditched it. You can now e-mail me with comments, suggestions, etc. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well. With the crazy hellidaze over, I have been able to get back
to work. The Marx pages are being re-vamped right now.
I really haven't had a lot of time to work on CC lately (not because
I don't want to--time just isn't allowing for a lot of photography lately). Chances are, not a lot will happen till my big
9-day break at Xmas time. So don't worry--it hasn't been abandoned...
C'mon. I know you were losing sleep over it.
There is now a Marx page in Dino Figure Reviews. I still have a little work to do on it, but for the most part it is finito.
Added some more pictures and thoughts to the Imperial page.
A few new additions added to the Paleo-Art page. Also, the page got a makeover.
Smaller scale dinosaurs added to the Ja-Ru page and the Imperial page. The Dollar Dino page is now up -n- running. Yee-haw!
The JA-RU page is now up. I have a little more work to do on it, but it's looking pretty swell so far.
Finally got the smaller scale Tootsietoy figures up.
Put up the AAA site in the figure reviews section. Neato!
6/23/05 - Well, slowly but surely things are getting added to C.C. I finally got some
reviews written up (well, two, but it's a start). Check out the reviews of Diener and Imperial figures.
