PostSubject: Show Us Yours- Pinnipeds (Seals,Sea Lions,Walruses)   Fri Jan 02, 2015 3:41 pm

The show us yours for January 2015 ended up being my suggestion of pinnipeds. c: Pinnipeds includes seals,sea lions and walruses.

Pinnipeds are aquatic mammals who live in many parts of the world. Some live in cold climates (like the the leopard seal)  where as others live in warmer climates (such as the monk seal). There are three different families within the genus- Odobenidae (walruses and extinct relatives), Otariidae (eared seals such as furred seals,sea lions) & Phocidae (eared seals). They are carnivores,mainly eating fish and crustaceans. Some species prey upon birds like penguins and seagulls.

The main predators of Pinnipeds is that of polar bears,orcas,sharks and humans.

I'll start off with mine:

The current Schleich common (harbour) seal and her pup, I know this isn't much of a collection but both are nice figures.


I'm sure the rest of you have more to show than me though!

Flickr will not load properly so its not letting me post it in the way I would normally post images here. I uploaded it directly instead so you should be able to see it now.

Indeed this Schleich seal is a Common Seal although in some parts of the world it is known as the Harbour Seal.

I've always called it the Harbour seal myself but I figured Common seal may be better known to international members. Beautiful photos btw, I remember seeing them on flickr earlier in the year!

PostSubject: Britains Walrus   Sat Jan 03, 2015 12:22 am

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Britains Walrus 1962 1


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Britains Walrus 1962 2


The walrus was introduced to Britains new plastic Zoo range as number 1328. The first issue, shown above, was released in 1962 and replaced in 1975. It was derived from the old Britains lead version’s mould which came out in 1933.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The model shown above is the replacement model designed by Ron Cameron and introduced to the Zoo range in 1975 and lasted until 1998 when the Zoo/wildlife range was deleted from Britains itinerary.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Britains Walrus 1962 and 1975


Now the image above shows both the 1962 and 1975 designs together. The newer version on the right is much better and certainly shows the progress Britains made in this period.

Now the image above shows both the 1963 and 1975 designs together. The newer version on the right is more animated and catches the characteristics of the animal far better and again shows the progress Britains made in this period.

You are welcome jarda. I am working on the rest of the Britains Zoo / Wildlife range where there are at least two distinct versions of the same animal. Information is hard to find and although there are lists available it is always better to have images.

These have already been shown, in very nice photos, but I'll share a couple of my Seals/Sea Lion pictures.

Here's the Mojo Fun Sea Lion. I think it's gorgeous. Despite the fact that the surface texture is so extremely delicate, it is really pretty. (I also love what Anna did with hers a while ago, in polishing the surface. UPDATE: you can find the pictures [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in Christophe's fantastic walk-around of the Mojo Sea Lion.)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Britains Sea Lion, from 1975 (which I only know from Chris's helpful comments above). I love this sculpt.

And the Mojo Fun Seal, my favorite Seal model.

Here are the pinnipeds from  Bullyland :DFor a brand with a relatively limited range, their pinniped-flock is quite impressive .

Untill year 2000, Bullyland only made a few for the "standard size" series ( later called "Small") ,  but they had several large AAA models in their range.
Schleich sold the same AAA models, but only some of the small one/cubs. But I don't include AAA models in this list Wink )

The very first one is this little walrus from 1985 :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The cute, little siver coloured sea lion is from 1988, - the micro seal is from late 1990s :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In year 2000 Bullyland began making their own "De luxe" pinnipeds.

The first year a walrus with cub. I love this guy. He is enormously fat, just as they have to be in order to get in rut, because he does not eat during that period  Wink  
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

His little son will be big and fat too, - in 10 or 15 years Wink
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In 2001 came the fur seal with pup :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Also in 2001 this lovely sea lion family :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Saddleback seal with pup ( 2001)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And the well known Elephant seals also came in 2001 :
For once the guy has his mouth shut  Laughing
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then a break for 10 years before the next ones came in 2011.
Greay seal with cob :
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And sea lions, - I am sure I like the old ones better  Wink
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just for fun, - this is a so called blue sea critter  alien  Laughing
All I know about him is that he is made by Bullyland and that he has an impressive beard Wink

Great presentation and collection of Bullyland pinnipeds! Very Happy I love specially all these between the walrus and the most recent sea lions. Diversity with species like the fur seal and even some quality. I think the last one is a Smurf seal! Laughing
