MPC produced many plastic toy models over the years including soldiers, jungle animals, farm animals, robots, super heroes and of course, dinosaurs.
There’s something extremely satisfying about putting together your own toy, and the finished product should feel like a real accomplishment.
There was a lot of competition for plastic toys at this time, with bigger companies like Ideal and Marx producing some top-notch products.
A lot of people disregard MPC products because they are sometimes ugly and poor quality, but in truth there are some very quirky, interesting models and model kits that have become part of the collectors’ circuit. The dinosaurs MPC manufactured looked quite similar to the Marx designs, but they were made to be more affordable and thus came out looking cheaper.


The best companies for making model kits knew this, and produced kits with a realistic, life-like finish to them. Hooker is an American police drama television program starring William Shatner in the title role as, Thomas Jefferson Hooker, a 15 year veteran police sergeant. MPC took a different stance however, trying to produce similar items for less money than the competition. Whereas Marx used earthy, realistic tones for its dinosaurs, MPC was producing dinosaurs in bright, gaudy colors like metallic blue. Although some of its plastic toys might have skimped on quality, MPC did manage to create some really great, beautiful model kits. However, the combination of gaudy colors, sometimes misshapen forms and cheap materials has given these toys a real kitschy appeal with today’s collectors. Another memorable collection from MPC was its spaceman range that came in bright blue, red and white.


During its production period, MPC created a lot of highly-detailed car kits that were very popular with children. Even though the plastic toys are in a sort of “love it or hate it” market, the model kits have definitely managed to have a true mainstay in the eyes of collectors and the baby boom generation. These little five-and-dime toys are great little astronaut toys representative of what was popular in the 1960s. Kits like the Ford Double Flip Pickup, Flying Dutchman and a ’76 Dodge Dart were included in the line. MPC also offered a great range of science-fiction kits, military kits and monster kits during the same time.
