here a bit more historical background about the Starlux figures.
This visual dating back to 1971
shows the first 12 models launched between 1968
The mammoth, diplodocus, Iguanodon, aurochs and cavebear were launched in 1968
Note that the diplodocus and mammoth were both retired and replaced by other models later.
The tyrannosaurus, stegosaurus, triceratops, wooly rhino and dimetrodon were launched in 1969
Note that the stegosaurus originally had a green color, which was later changed to grey.
The paleotherium, machairodus, diatryma and phororhacos were launched in 1970
This visual shows figures launched in 1972
Note that the trachodon, while being kept in the catalogue (and experiencing several color evolutions ranging from olive green to turquese) was then refered to as shantungosaurus.
This visual show the 1974
This one shows the 1978
And this one shows the 1979
Launches continued up to the mid 1980s with pachycephalosaurus, scelidosaurus, psittacosaurus, scelidosaurus and deinonychus being the last figures to be launched.
This is a trilingual flyer showing the full cavemen
And finally a 2 page flyer showing the full final collection with all 85 animal figures and 13 cavemen figures.
Interestingly, almost all figures stayed in the catalogue after making it originally. The first caveman, the mammoth and the diplodocus are notable exceptions as shown below
There were of course color variations on some of the models; styracosaurus went from dark brown to a beautiful grey, stegosaurus from green to grey, etc... and megalosaurus retained its unbelievable pink
