from the Dinosaur Collector  update 9/2/6

Mu;tiple made a series of Dinosaur Play sets in the 1960's.  The figures were often little more than slightly smaller imitations of the better known Marx figures but had a broader range of prehistoric mammals and a redesigned Brontosaurus. The MPC Brontosaurus bears a striking resemblance to the Diplodocus figure in the Jurassic Diorama at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington DC.  The MPC dinosaurs were produced in brighter colors ( reds, blues, silvers and greens) than the Marx figures and popular as premiums ( orange and purple ).  Quality control was also less impressive. It is ironic that MPC products are being  made again over 35 years later by the new Marx Toys under special arrangement.  Like the Marx figures, copies and recasts are still commonly being made.  The best known copies are the Winneco / Britannic figures with their bent tails and necks.  Not as popular with collectors as Marx, they are a less expensive alternative to Marx figures.  The rare green plastics figures are regarded as especially collectable.  The MPC figures are often mistaken for Marx figures but there are some easy differences to spot.  First the colors are different from the original Marx figures (not the recasts) which were gray, tan and olive green.  They are smaller and often the leg and arm positions are slightly changed.  The MPC Moshops is hollow underneath.  Details of the claws and digits are often indistinct for MPC figures.  The MPC Sloth has much thinner and flatter arms than the Marx version.   Similar style figures were made by ROM, Topps, JARU and Sinclair.
