I got lucky and picked that one up off the shelf, had to call ahead, have them hold it and it was the only one I ever saw on a store shelf...that sucker was popular even then.

The most I've paid for a dinosaur toy was my Battat Diplodocus The toys I own that I suspect are worth the most would likely be the Battat Diplodocus, Acrocanthosaurus, NWT Maiasaura, NWT Euoplocephalus, and MIB Triceratops (maybe). As well as my Bullyland Mastodonsaurus even though it is quite scuffed. And my Kabaya "Seismosaurus," and perhaps several of my Kaiyodos, though I don't know
In after market terms, probably my WWD figures. I got them all as birthday presents, so I've no idea how much they cost originally. Most expensive I bought is either the CollectA deluxe Agustinia or the Toyway Diplodocus/Kentrosaurus pack, depending on how much Aus dollars are to pounds.
I think the most I've ever paid for one figure was a MIB DinoRiders Warthog. After which, I opened it and threw all but the animal away.
As for most expensive, in terms of value of what I have...WwD Liopleurodon & Postosuchus? Invicta Troodon? Quick WwD set? Bully Deinotherium, Mastodonsaurus, etc? Maybe the various FaunaCasts figures I have, since they are incredibly limited?
Nope, I know--Malcolm Mlodoch/Fauna Casts museum-quality gar model (extra from a museum display). Not necessarily expensive to buy at the time, but it would be really expensive now...because it is the only one that isn't in a display!
tough call on this one, don't really have any that are worth a fortune. I have every Wild Safari replica made to date, so I mean I could see some of those gathering value as time goes by (juvenile T-rex comes to mind). As for most expensive I have ever bought, probably the newer of the carnegie diplodocus'

my miller brontops, i just kept bidding and before i knew it i spend waaaay to much!
i create installations that mix the handmade with the mass produced into enchanting yet anachronistic worlds that the use the memories of childhood and adolescence to explore and educate my viewers in such subjects as history, ecology biology, chemistry, religion and gender studies all while addressing the historical and contextual aspects of my materials.

The most expensive dino that I own is the Dinostoreus T-rex skeleton model witch retails for about $349.00 dollars u.s. But I got lucky and used a 40 percent off coupon!!!! The finished models were about $40 to $70 each. The most expensive figure that I can think of is the Safari Carnegie collection Brachiosaurus witch was around $40.
Then I dropped about $400 on the play school kota the triceratops four my daughter this Christmas.
The most I've ever paid was about $30 for the new Carnegie Diplo. My most valuable figures are probably my Battat Armargosaurus, Dilophosaurus (mini), Gallimimus (mini); Schleich Edmontonia; and WWD Utahraptor, Leallynasaura, and Postosuchus.
Hmmm I would say the Battat Diplo... paid $100 for my second one ;D Others in my collections that could be worth a lot of $$ would be the WWD Liop, Bully Mastodon and Deinotherium, maybe some of the Starlux, and the of course the large Playvison prehistoric mammals set;D
