Once upon a time the #1 online authority for these.
What happens when you mix Dinosaurs with futuristic people? You get Dino Riders! What kid couldn't
love a heavily armored Tyrannosaurus-Rex with more guns than an Iranian family! Who needs robots
when you can put armor on a dinosaur and eat people with the dinosaur when the armor is damaged.
These things were also a TV show and a movie which gave you even more ideas as to how to destroy
things with the Dinosaurs. I was too lazy to put the armor on most of the dinosaurs since
most of it is slightly broken or the rubber bands have died. The pictures there include all the
dinosaurs I have found. I know I had a few more including the Deinonychus, but I'm pretty sure he
was crushed at some point. My cousin also had several, but I don't know if they still have any
The adventure's beginning is summarized in the opening credits of each cartoon. The Valorian home
planet is conquered by the evil Rulon armada and a small band of Valorians led by Questar
attempts to escape. The Rulon Flagship Dreadlock commanded by Krulos, the Rulon leader, chases
after the renegade Valorian ship. The Valorians attempt to escape by using the STEP (Space Time
Energy Projector). It works, except they're launched to 65,000,000 B.C. and crashland on the planet
Earth. The Dreadlock was following closely and was caught in the STEP and follows them to earth.
After investigating their surroundings, they manage to find one another, and begin assembling armies of
Dinosaurs, since their ships have been ruined by the time warp. The Valorians befriend the Dinosaurs
with their telepathy and medallions they wear around the neck, while the Rulons enslave them with Brain
Boxes. Mostly the Valorians befriend the herbivore Dinos while the Rulons take the Carnivores.
