FAN CLUB

On the back of the miniature comics that came packaged with the dinosaur sets, there was an application form for the Dino-Riders Fan Club.  Getting in required a check or money order for $3.50 and three Dino-Rider points, which were basically proofs or purchase.  The value of the points varied depending on the size of the dinosaur.  For example, the figure two-packs and small dinosaurs were worth one point and the Tyrannosaurus and Brontosaurus were worth 6 points.  There are at least two different known versions of the Fan Club.  The traditional version (the one advertised on the comics) contained an iron-on patch, a membership card, a newsletter, both mini comics, and 16 Dino-Rider trading cards.  The other version has appeared quite a few times in recent years on E-Bay.  It appears that the membership application for this version was on a box of Kellogg's cereal.  This set contained everything that the traditional package offered except that instead of the trading cards, there was a re-painted Pterodactyl.  This Pterodactyl was colored brown and orange and it made a cool looking collector’s piece.  As for the newsletters, there are two known issues – Vol. 1 No. 1 and Vol. 1 No. 2.  Vol. 1 No. 2 is by far the more common of the two.  In fact, Vol. 1. No. 1 is extremely rare but of course I have it here to view!  Vol. 1 No. 2 was released on both white paper and light blue paper.
