The company was obviously taking a cue from the success of Dino-Riders from Tyco. Bone age was a line with small (about two inches tall) cavemen that rode on the bones of dinosaurs. The fossils are impressive. They can be taken completely apart and reconfigured in any configuration, and can even be combined with parts from other dinosaur fossils in the line. They each have a main form, which is the dinosaur they represent, and most of them have a "battle form" that is more of an attack vehicle. the Triceratops' horns act as missiles and most of the other dinosaurs have some sort of projectile too. This is one of the great features of 80s toys. . . projectiles! Kids loved things that shot. . . or at least toy companies thought they did!
These are not toys that you see very often. I have never seen one at a show, but you can see them on e-bay from time to time! They don't go for a ton of money and you can get some good pieces for about $30 or less.
It is a line that is worth looking at especially if you like the other smaller sale lines that Kenner released in the 80s such as MASK or Sky Commanders, this finishes out that trilogy quite nicely! If you get a chance this is a line to pick up for sure!
