Back in the 60s, Lindberg was one of the biggest manufacturers of plastic model kits next to Aurora, and this included DINOSAURS. They had quite a selection, It’s just a shame that whoever sculpted the molds for them was a horrible artist (Or in second grade). It is for this reason I still miss the old Aurora Allosaur I had (It was from the old movie “Valley of Gwangi”).
Here are some that were re-released by Lindberg, and are basically the same old kits. The only new ones that even look halfway decent were the T-Rex and V-raptor from the original JP film, back in 1993.
Here are a few of the horrors Lindberg still sells to impressionable kids as “scientifically accurate” to this day.
hee hee hee… ‘Life-like detail’…
“DERP… durhurrrrr” realistic Derp-y features, and optional “Creationist Caveman” figure for the science denying family in mind…
"Oh wow, man… The COLORS!! I… AM… METALUNA!!
Wow. They got this so wrong, I don’t know where to start…
*Okay, now I’m officially depressed…"
So according to Lindberg, all ceratopsians were able to grow their horns from tubes that protruded from their skulls? This is not how to science.
All of these kits are still made by Lindberg, and always end up in bargain outlets, like Big Lots or Ollie’s.
Stay away from these, unless you want something to show kids that back in the day, dinosaurs were treated with no respect. Maybe they could save themselves a little embarrassment by taking that “Made in 'Murica” label off of the box. Seriously. If American plastic kits are this crappy, it’s no wonder no one’s heard of Lindberg anymore.
