Hi,

here are pictures of one of the two dino star I found 15 years ago on a flea market in Belgium. The other one is same as the 8 colors Dino Star.
They are not the same as those I see on this forum (cfr close view) can you tell me more about this puzzle (year of production, where does it come from, is it an illegal copy,...)

Nice! It is the first time I see a Dino Star *with* its original package!

I hope other forum members can be more helpful regarding the origin
of this rare puzzle, as I have absolutely no clue!

:mrgreen:

As a collector, I love puzzles with their original packagings.
Thank you for sharing!

Hi Geo-

I just saw this post!
These puzzles look like copies of the original dino star. They don't appear to be originals. The tile designs are very different, and the colors are different, too.

EDIT- I see you stated this in the original post. Sorry, I was too quick to reply. After a second look, there's a small chance the tiles on these are simply upside down.

I have held 5 different kind of Dino Stars in my hand:
White, Yellow, Green, Blue and Red

But I think there is something wrong with this.
The tiles are looks a little bit strange to me. :?

But just for you I've translate the paper: 8-)

"Summa Star"
Logic Toy
I hope you will have enough patience for this puzzle!
What you hold in your hand is a twisty puzzle witch can be rotate to 8 direction (?), holds more than 1 million combinations in itself.

With the rotation of the tips, the sides color will change. The aim is to make the same circles in the sides.

Good Luck! Have Fun!

I'm bumping this thread to add a final resolution on the question of this Dino Star being a tile-flipped version of the original. It is not.
Here's an image of tiles I just removed from a White Dino star. I think tile photos may have been posted before now that I think about it. Anyway, the important thing is that this dino is apparently another production, which is great.
