The toys were excellently made, and many are prized by collectors. The dinosaurs were all highly detailed and came with weapons and either a Valorean or Rulon warrior. Some of the dinosaurs were even motorized, allowing them to walk! The most well known of the toys are likely the Diplotocus (which came with the Valorean leader Questar) and the T-Rex (which came with the Rulon leader Krulos).
Dino-Riders may not be as widely remembered as Transformers or GI Joe, but it still captured everything that was great (and stupid) about 1980's action cartoons and toys. Let us pray that it is one day revived, either as a movie or a new cartoon series.
Guy 2: "Oh yeah, they were awesome! I have the T-Rex, and he still walks!"
