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.
