This book in part tells the story of the evolution of the "Dino-Riders" line and mentions Lee Volpe several times.

An interesting insight into the history of "Dino-Riders." From the personal collection of Lee Volpe, Tyco Toy’s Manager, Director, and VP of New Product Development (1982–1994) who was involved from the beginning of the development of Dino-Riders, Garfield telephones and several other Tyco toys.
