It's not my first choice for such items, but Walmart is actually the only place selling animal figures in my town cyclops  (to my knowledge). We don't have many stores in general, so it's much more exciting when we go other places. We will next week, so I am looking forward to that. Still, I'll probably have to order the majority of things online.

Thanks for sharing, Susanne. Wow fantastic imagery! I got wonderful visuals reading that. Little bells…that's precious. drunken I wish I could go birdwatching more often.

PostSubject: SpiralStrix Additions   Tue Jan 21, 2014 9:05 pm

Idea I've changed my mind and decided to post my additions in one place from now on. I hope you don't mind.

This is my first Kitan Club figure, and what a treasure!

Kitan Club Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I received another Kaiyodo bird! It's sort of a funny figure, but I think it showcases the charismatic persona of these owls. The details are better when seen in person, since these birds are fairly tiny, but this photo will suffice.

Kayla, I like best when someone shows all additions in a single topic. Unless it is a walk around, a first presentation or a discussion thread. Very Happy
If you want, I merge all your addition topics in this one. Very Happy
These are two wonderful figures for a birds collector, thanks for showing so nicely. Very Happy

Of course I will, Andreas. Wink I have more arrivals already, but I still need to take some pictures.  Applause 
I can definitely try to do a walk-around of the kingfisher, Christophe.  Smile  study I'll try my best anyway...I am no photographer.
Oh, that makes sense, Rogério. I wasn't sure where was most appropriate to post. I get it now. sunny Yes, it would be great if you could merge them here! I think I only had 3 other threads. The Safari, Schleich, and Kaiyodo additions.

Everything is already merged in this topic. It looks an aviary! Laughing
You can keep using this one to show all your figures. Of course the walk around it is better to open on its correct section as Christophe said. Very Happy

Hello, everyone!
I have more newcomers to update you on. I am a little behind posting them all, but I'll try to catch up in the next few days. First, I have something rather different to show you. It is the start of my antelope collection! I mentioned before that I would be collecting antelopes in addition to birds. Birds are my main focus, but I had been hypnotized by the many gorgeous antelope figures. Shocked When I saw the 2014 Mountain Nyala prototype pictures, it was the last straw, and I decided to collect them. I like the quality and variety of antelope figures available from different brands. They are popular in the forums too, which makes it more fun.  cheers 

I may take better pictures later, but here's a peak:

It was exciting holding each of these for the first time. They are marvelous works of art! The Schleich figures are how I imagined them to be, and I am content with them. I was pleasantly surprised by the feel of the Mojo figures. Really nice quality! I am happy to have the pronghorn and sable as my first Mojos. The Safari oryx is much better in person. I already liked it from the photos I'd seen, but I was blown away in reality. The paint and textures were more detailed than expected. The Lesser Kudu is an example of what I anticipated Safari antelopes to be like. However, I do like this kudu a lot. I was especially excited to receive my first CollectA figures. The paintwork is superb. The waterbuck has very nice coloring, and how can you not love that little blackbuck? The waterbuck does have a bent horn, but that seems to be common with this figure. Hmm, I don't have a Papo antelope yet…maybe next time. Oh, I did get the barn owl though!

*I know a pronghorn is not quite an antelope, but it's a nice representative from my homeland. I'm not too strict. geek I even saw a few pronghorn herds this weekend. Smile*

Kayla, a collection organized like that looks always wonderful! I don't want to say that larger and messy collections are not great but everything looks wonderfully logical like that. Very Happy
To support your choices, the only antelope I don't have from these is the only that you correctly say it is not an antelope. I do have the Safari pronghorn instead but I'll get the Mojo version either.
Papo doesn't have many antelopes, only an oryx and a greater kudu. They are larger than those from otehr brands and maybe that is not the strongest point of the brand, though, kudu is very charming! Very Happy

Bryan, I think any of these would be fantastic for your collection! If you have/get any, I'd love to see. cheers 

Thanks again, Rogério! Yes, it is easier to organize collections while they're small. It will get cluttered pretty quickly, though...if I keep going at this rate. Laughing Then, I'll need a plan! Maybe something to use up some of that vertical space.
I keep forgetting that Safari also has a pronghorn. I love the Mojo one, but the Safari has more accurate facial markings.
Ah, the size difference of Papo antelopes could deter me from getting them. However, I do really want a gemsbok in my collection, so I might give in. I like the look of the kudu a lot, but I don't know how I feel about it towering over my other kudus.

Congratulation Kayla  Very Happy I also collect antelopes and birds...  scratch ... and a few other animals  Laughing 

About the Pronghorn, Mojo one needs only a small change in painting and the Safari Ltd is a bit bigger, more in the Papo antelopes size.

If I had to choose a Papo antelope I will go for the Wildbeest, it is big but...  I love you 

Don't forget, the CollectA saola, withe-tailed gnu and eland Wink, and the Mojo Thomson's.

Great add to a collection! They are all very beautiful. There is also the Papo Oryx - it is a very nice model I think.

THAT is cool ! I have only housecats roaming my backgarden, as they hunt the poor little birds (often, they are too slow- the cats, that is tongue )!

Okay, then I can leave the Safari Ltd. pronghorn for now. I have many others to get still.
Oh I couldn't forget those CollectA masterpieces! They are out-of-stock from my seller of choice, so I have to be patient. bounce 
Indeed, the Mojos will make a nice family with the Schleich Thomson's. Oh yeah, the wildebeest! I agree. drunken

I might get the oryx. I really want to see it for myself. flower
It was cool! I always enjoy seeing wildlife, especially in their natural habitats. For example, I saw bison a few times on our drive to and from South Dakota last week. I saw a bunch of fenced-in bison, but seeing the lone bison in the wind cave national park was much more rewarding...even though it was just one individual that time.
Oh silly cats!  cat  cat

Me too, Karin. I am also curious how my boyfriend will react to them. I just added two more little antelopes. While eating dinner he glanced at the shelf and said, "I think they are multiplying…" Suspect 
I responded that I could easily double them.  Laughing

Me too, Karin. I am also curious how my boyfriend will react to them. I just added two more little antelopes. While eating dinner he glanced at the shelf and said, "I think they are multiplying…" Suspect 
I responded that I could easily double them.  Laughing

Hahaha, he doesn't know half of it XD lol!  My boyfriend doesn't look at my collection. And if he ever complains about the fact that there are to many of them. I will grab his ear and point at his cabinet full of X-Box 360 games  Laughing lol! (Some of them he never played! o.0)

Well, I am guilty of buying more books and video games when I still have plenty I haven't read/played.  Embarassed geek 
Strange habit, but I've slowed down a lot. My boyfriend really doesn't mind, he just likes picking on me.  cyclops 
He has games too, and a room full of r/c stuff.  tongue

Thanks guys! Time for some more...

Over a week ago, we took a little trip to South Dakota and were able to check out a few stores.
On January 23rd, we went to Michaels (they had Safari Ltd.), Hobby Lobby (Mojo and Safari Ltd.), Toys R Us (Schleich), Who's Hobby House (Safari Ltd. Toobs), and Who's Toy House (Schleich and Papo).

My first purchase was from Toys R Us.

Schleich Gazelle Female

My other two newcomers came from Who's Toy House. My! What a hidden haven!  drunken They had a large light-up wall display, like the ones I've seen in toy fair pictures. It was the most well-stocked and organized display I have seen so far. The large display was for Schleich, which included the 2014 releases, and there was a smaller one for Papo. It was my first time seeing Papo in a store. Despite all the great brands I had come across, I only bought Schleich figures this time. They didn't have any of the Mojo, Safari, or Papo figures I was looking for.

This little fellow was not on my radar, but I am glad I came across it. I was pretty sure it was a wildebeest calf, thus an antelope, but I did have to check and make sure when I got home.

The new flying fox was on my 2014 wish list, and I was so surprised to see it at a US store
already!

Schleich Fruit Bat or Grey-headed Flying Fox (Pteropus poliocephalus)

I also ordered these little deer online. No, not antelope, but they've got some sort of antelope charm I can't explain. I knew they were small, but wow, they are small! I am fond of them.

That must have been a dream of a trip ! From one toy store to another  cheers 

You surely found some fine model...that gnu calf is adorable, and the gazelle and the bat are great models Very Happy

But the muntjacs are so fantastic, - they radiate charm, especially in your wonderful photo  Applause  Applause

I have the Schleich Gnu calf (and his mom) and the gazelle too, they are wonderful animals.
Oh my, the bat looks really neat in your photos.
Hope to see him soon in RL in one of the stores in my hometown.

Nice Muntjacs  cheers sunny

Thanks ladies! Yes, it was a lot of fun! I should add that shopping wasn't our main purpose for the trip...just a nice bonus.  Wink We went there to swim in hot springs and visit Mount Rushmore. My favorite part was going to a Mammoth dig site. I was in awe the whole time looking at real mammoth fossil bones. They left them as they were found too, which made it even more incredible.

Great set of Antelope and great recent additions!

I'm late to seeing the earlier pictures of your antelope collection, but to throw in my two-cents to that conversation: Even though I'm not a fan of "largish" figures, I really like the Papo Kudu, Gnu, and Gemsbok (in that order I think). And my favorite Antelope that is missing from your collection is the Giant Eland from CollectA (I read that you're waiting for it to arrive in the online shop you use). It is awesome.

My Waterbuck also had a bent horn, but I was able to fix it just by bending it gently and holding it in the correct position. I tried adjusting the horns on my Safari Arabian Oryx using the hold/cold method and that was a disaster (they were too thin); I don't know if the same would be true for the Waterbuck.

Congratulations! That Who's Toy House sounds great, and looking at photos it looks very nice! Too bad I don't live closer. Laughing It will be a long time until I see Schleich 2014 figures near me. Rolling Eyes Though I am hoping this will be sooner with Schleich having the new distribution center in the United States. Very Happy

Enjoy the way you photographed your bat. Very Happy
I also got it, I like the translucent plastic on bat as much as I dislike it in the peafowl. Very Happy

sunny I am very impressed by the wonderful Sitatunga and how fast it came to me. I was expecting two weeks or more, but it took less than nine days!  affraid I had it sent to family in another state, since I never know when I'll be traveling, or how long the delivery would take. Also, we were going to be visiting there soon. Well, it arrived in that town before I did, which meant I could bring it home with me, and wouldn't have to wait until our next visit!  cheers
