It is nice to know that you enjoyed in Atalanta. Fantastic also that you've found some figures even they're few. Thanks for presenting these salamanders with all that detailed information. The blue-spotted salamander is particularly beautiful! Very Happy We have a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on TAI but from 1993 instead. Very Happy

They are fairly soft, although it's difficult to pull them straight. The red is about 26cm long; the other two are about 16cm.

I was pretty happy to find the Blue-spotted. It doesn't look too off from the real thing!

But as usual, it's the same mold for each, even though they would really have very different shapes.

Laughing That was very common in these days and Wild Republic did it a lot as you know. It looks great, enough recognizable although it is easy to see that the mould is generic and not based in a blue-spotted salamander. I like it and it is just slightly larger than a real one! Very Happy
Well, the traditional question, when you have time, will you provide pictures for TAI? Wink

Great salamanders, bonytails and pickerels. I hope you are able to find the pike minnow soon. It's really sad to hear that Replica Toy Fish is shutting down, especially since they had some really fantastic figures. I'm really glad to have picked some up when I had the chance and I highly recommend them.

I can certainly supply them. I have some, just not handy right now.

Agreed, I really like the line. Hopefully his new line starts up soon. I just stocked up whatever I could for my store, we'll see how they go once they become more rare...premium pricing! Wink

I know that I can find the other Arizona fishes on Alibaba/TaoBao. But not the pikeminnow. Just not sure if I trust it or not. The TaoBao price is much better, but I can't seem to find the lot I want there.

Do you mind if I ask what will be in the new line? I hope it will be more fish species.

I don't know much about TaoBao but I have heard they have a lot of rare figures. I didn't know they had most of the Arizona fishes line as well.

Simeon asked not to say too much--it is indeed all fish, and primarily freshwater. But more worldwide.

They first sets for which I have seen packaging look pretty encouraging--some re-done old favorites (yes, gars...I don't think it's a surprise that he's doing those) and lots of new ones. Lots of inspiration from River Monsters/Monster Fish, lots of sport fish. I did throw in my suggestions, including trying to include some of the smaller non-game type animals like darters and sculpins. But we'll see on that.

Please let me know if you have more informations about the saltwater fishes :)

Very nice! I love River Monsters and gars, so this is indeed encouraging. Like you said though, it's great to have smaller species too.

I've seen his list--there aren't many saltwater fish--a few marine sport fish (but I think they are part of the same set--the fish will be released in tackle box sets all of the same number). There will also be some fish that can be catadromous/anadromous, migratory or brackish (like, for example, alligator gars, which can enter saltwater).

Yes, all are interesting for me :)

PostSubject: Fall 2017 update!   Wed Nov 15, 2017 4:06 am

I've been a little quiet, but I've been slowly building in the last few months...Here is the group photo!

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

In no particular order:
CollectA Basilosaurus, Excalibosaurus & Prehistoric Marine tube; Safari Marsh&Associates special release Razorback suckers (x2!) and Cave Dwellers toob Crayfish; Hikari Clown Loaches (x2); Phil Farrell Fire eel(!); K&M Red-Backed Salamander; Yowies Freshwater Catfish; PNSO Himalayasaurus; Capsule Aquarium Giant eel; Enoshima Aquarium Japanese soldierfish; DYDO Fangtooth (Ogrefish); Ichimon/NatureTechnicolor Frilled Shark & Indonesian Coelacanth.

And now I can say that I have the full set of Marsh&Associates Arizona fish!

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

Also, these burbot...they are fishing lures, but other than the tail are pretty much just rubber fish replicas!

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

(the larger yellow/brown one is obviously more realistic; the blue is more fanciful)

Maybe the highlight is that you completed the Safari Arizona fish series that you have found yourself that it existed. Laughing Phil Farrell figure is also very interesting from what I can see.
What about that K&M red-back salamander? I cannot find it on TAI. Could you please take an individual picture of it and point me to the right series it belongs, please? study

Well, it took almost 5 years, but Malcolm came through!

Yes, it's 1/40, and as huge as you'd expect! Notice the little Lego Friend mini!

Also, Safari arrived for my store today...so great to see the first batch! Most of which I have added to my collection!

A Cenozoic (or Cainozoic if you're weird) geology fan should get why this sequence is so fantastic!

Dinos on a dinosaur leg...and close up!

Apparently I forgot to say it's name! It's Leedsichthys!

I cross posted from the DTF, but I'm assuming most people there will know what it is!

Congratulation Sean Very Happy

Malcolm's Leedsichthys is incredible, I missed this one and I really hope someone will make a hughe one at last, it is a so fantastic fish.

I'm very jealous about the K&M Red-Backed Salamander, if someday you heard about his twins tell me please.

5 years? No wonder it is so grown up! Laughing
You got some Safari, I see the muskox is not that big, these measurements are probably because of its wonderful skirt. Wink
The triceratops looks fabulous, if I was a collector of dinos, that would surely be my three-horned face. What a Face

It is a really nice Triceratops--I'm admittedly thinning my own dinosaur herd, but it is very tempting! It is apparently to scale with the 2017 T.rex, which is a pretty nice, massive figure itself!

And that Leedsichthys has really topped off what has turned into a very fishy year for me (my new thing...or really, my oldest thing). And I'm not quite done yet!
