I used to collect it as a kid. You used to get a bit of a T-Rex skeleton model every week.

Was it just called 'Dinousaurs' or something else?

I don't think I managed to collect all of them. There were loads.

And they came with glow in the dark parts of dinosaurs?

I used to get one like that. :D

ooohhh! I used to get that.....the last model I got to make fully was the T-rex, I think :)

Wasn't there more than one model to make? I remember a triceratops!

You collected all the bone parts, then they started giving you the skin parts. It was brilliant, although I only ever managed to do the T-Rex.

And the skin parts were cardborard weren't they?

I managed to collect the T-Rex, too. I think I gave up then. :o

Yes! :jmp:

Yes and then you had to paint them.

I think they might have re-released it a number of years after the original run finished as well.

I used to collect it too. I got my T-rex. :D

Then I left it in the garden for a few days by accident and the sun ruined the glowy. :(

Does anyone know what Dinosaur came after the T-Rex?

Does anyone know what Dinosaur came after the T-Rex?

I think it was either a Stegosaurus, Triceratops or a Pterodactyl.

I'm sure it was a stegosaurus.

Stegosaurus rings a bell. I can actually vision the cover of that edition in my mind. That was probably around the time I started missing some issues, either because I had done something to arse my Mum of which resulted in her not buying it for me that week, or that particular issue looked a bit boring.

I remember there being a poster edition you could buy as well, which I usually purchased if the actual magazine had sold out, which it did on a regular basis. It was heart breaking going to your local news agents to find that some kid in the que had nabbed the last copy :(

They should bring it back. Let's start a petition.
