I picked up one of these fun little rare items (#8) by pure chance, and it's one of the centerpieces of my comic shelf and almost impossible to find. It's signed by Schultz and individually numbered #8 of 10.
Is the set sealed or are you able to show what the dinosaur figures look like? I would be fascinated to see them myself....if they are styled after the marx sets of the 60s...marx was barely hanging on in the seventies and many of the playsets were done by MPC as the change occurred.

Sadly, my comic shelf is at my home office and I am currently away on summer ministry, so no pics until September, I'm afraid.

The figures are nothing to write home about - I think the uniqueness comes from the box, which is designed in the Marx style with things like "Qua Hoon Brand" and "Mark's" playset (a nod to Mark Schultz). It even says "Jack Tenrec and Hannah Dundee approved" I believe.

The dinosaurs and army men are the little 15mm pieces that come in the plastic drug store bags of dinosaurs. It even includes one of the cheap plastic "mountains" and two plastic palm trees.

The box is a tiny tribute to both Xenozoic Tales and the Marx company, literally something you can pick up in one hand.

Here's a link to the article on my blog where I talk about picking it up:

An extremely rare digest horror comics title from Mexico. Nobody knows how many issues this series ran for? All I know is that one of my goals this year is to find as many as I possibly can!

Youse guys look swell, but dis is gitten muttonotonous.

Okay, so here’s the trimmed down version of el gato diablo from a couple of years ago.




The whiskers eventually recovered, returning to fuller follicularly bearded status along with the realization that I couldn’t play guitar like Duane Allman either!

And lo these many years I’ve never succumbed to barber-ism.

This keeps coming to mind because it has introductory pages to the mazes and one is a very early "new x-men" page of art. It must have been made right after X-Men #94.

This is on my mind recently, so I did a search through my collection to find it.
The month this came out, my local comic shop was shipped Australian versions instead of the US version.

High grade AUS copies are tough to find for most issues, but some of the keys can command a premium (NM 98, ASM 361, etc). That's a cool kind of error for distribution to make.

I knew it was very unusual. My guess is that the printer actually made the error and Diamond didn't catch it.
I think we determined at the comic shop that Sullivan (sp?) was printing this title at the time. They were based in Alabama.

Somewhere in my collection is an Image comic that slipped through distribution without the edges being trimmed. It's too wide for a short box. If I find that, I want to scan it also.

I've waited YEARS for someone to do this!!! I'm totally stoked to finally have my hands on replica prop comics from the movie "The Lost Boys"!!!! You can read all about them on the copied page. Both books have the same interior pages.

@GanaSoth
Link for both issues. You can also order just one, your choice, for $10 each. But the pair goes for $15, so I went that way myself.

You know, I've been doing some thinking on this, I've wondered why this is so cool for me. I think I figured it out.

Before "The Lost Boys", comic book collecting was never a part of a movie or tv plot. Two characters come to my mind that MIGHT have collected comics are Ralph from "Happy Days" and Horseshack from "Welcome Back Kotter". But it was not stressed for either one. In "Revenge of the Nerds", Booger MAY have been a comic book collector, but again, no major plot role. "The Simpsons" wouldn't come out for another two years in 1989.

There was nothing like "Big Bang Theory" or "Comic Book Men" back then. Collecting comic book basically had the same rule as "Fight Club" ... "You don't talk about comic book collecting!!"

I just remember how awesome it felt to see a comic book store and main characters talking about comic books on the movie screen!!! It was kind of a "coming of age" moment. I really think the hobby owes a lot to "The Lost Boys" for helping to make the hobby more public and mainstream. Maybe I'm overemphasizing the importance of the movie, but I really feel it is not given any credit for doing what it did. It gave a ton of comic book collectors some legitimacy. It felt good to see fellow collectors portrayed in positive roles as major characters in a large movie production.
