After I packed everything up to take home, I didn't feel like stripping Rexy down again and boxing him up. With my oldest daughter in the back seat and all the trunk and rear passenger space occupied, Rexy had to ride home in the front seat! Looks like he was enjoying the trip...

I was sifting through some of my images. Here's a quick shot for Facebook I took of my Allosaurs after I'd stripped the old paint off of the base and re-assembled him for the toy museum exhibit. The base had a lot of black & red paint smeared on it by its previous owner. I used brake fluid to strip it. The whole thing is a combination of a couple of Allos from toy show & eBay lots, picked up around '96 or so.
The foot prints leading up to the lava make it seem as though Allosaurus is just rampaging along, unwittingly about to contribute to his species' own extinction...

I'd love to get all these kits again and leave them unpainted. there is just something about the colors that Aurora used that makes them classic. Nice collection Ray!
Yeah, I agree, I even like the three human kits unpainted - they look quite serious and sensible, like educational or museum pieces. And the Allosaurus base pieces in yellow - for months I put off painting them as I wanted to keep the plastic colour!
