In the 1994 German Tyco/Matchbox dealers catalog Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs (repaints of the Dinosaurs) were announced.

Although the marketing started over Europe and the single packs had six languages on them to my knowledge Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs were only released in the UK.

The Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs have a cold sensitive skeleton painting. If they are dunked into cold water the skeleton appears. Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs are made of harder rubber than the earlier Dinosaurs.

The 24 different Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs were available in single packs with a fact card. Also 4-packs and 12-packs were announced but I have no pictures of these. The fact cards had numbers from 169 to 192 but the figures still had the numbers from the first series on them (145-168). The molds were not changed.

A Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs single pack.

Colors of the figures were yellow, green, orange, cyan, and purple. The painting of the details of the figures is different than the painting of the regular dinosaurs. This is how they can be spotted easier than with looking for the skeleton. The catalog picture above shows prototypes of the Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs with normally painted bones. Pictures below have been taken after the figures had been put in the fridge for 15 minutes.

The Secret Skeleton Dinosaurs belong to the most rare MIMP.
