This series is just wonderful, - the vaquita is another species rarely seen, - and the model is lovely cheers

The TAI-pages for the series are not completely finished up-dated, it is very exiting see that thanks to Paige there are now only the three "red" ones Very Happy

That's all wonderful! I udnerstand that the prairie dog is an abuse of cuteness but this is the expectable design for non Japanese capsule toys. By the way, some Japanese lines also favor this kind of design and I love the Utah prairie dog anyway. While educational companies just call them prairie dogs without any reference to the exact species, this company of chocolates is giving us an exact species. On the other hand, the vaquita is excellent, it surely works nicely with the best Play Visions and I think it is very faithful to the species... a very rare and endangered one!

The tapir has been added to the TAI gallery for anyone interested. Just the ferret and condor left.

Fantastic! Tapir won't be the last! Very Happy I'll need one of these tapirs to @Gedevan, our silent but very friendly collector of tapirs. Very Happy
That's again a nice figure as we can see here! flower
I think it is quite exciting when something we collect is almost complete! Is your dentist richer now? Wink

You can now see the black footed ferret on TAI as well. I just need a condor now and the series is complete. Very Happy

Luke, these are a US only surprise egg like toy series. So the only way to get them if you don't live in the US is some places like eBay or members here in the forum.

So the last one is a condor from California! Laughing The black-footed ferret is toyish in terms of proportions but at the same time very attractive. A design that makes me think how figures were designed in the past decade. It is also interesting that the other representative of this species was the almost 20 years old Play Visions figure. Very Happy

And this could be one of those rare times where a Yowie figure is a better version than the Play Visions! At least in terms of paint job!

So nice to hear about a new Yowie USA series Smile As you understand, I'd love to have that manatee.. But the tapir looks very tempting as well! Thanks for sharing everything with us, Paige!

Just a question, are Yowies only available at Walmart? And what's the difference between the packaging of the old and new series?

Walmart does not have exclusive rights, they're just ... more reliable about distributing to smaller stores because they like owning the market.

The packaging has stayed the same for the most part. The most noticeable differences are in the new capsule (which some of the old series had - a result of changing manufacturers of the chocolate and a copyright issue), and the new info tag was slightly redesigned.

Okay, see I'm late to the party Laughing ... I was just in a 7-11 near my workplace and saw a display of these with "New All-American Collection!" emblazoned on the box. I wasn't able to buy any at this time, but figured folks here would either know about it or want to. I hadn't seen it yet before this store.

Does the 'capsules with a Yowie in them tend to be heavier than ones with an animal' rule still hold? I'm kind of dreading finding out what 7-11 is charging for them, but I love that pupfish! And I can try to pick something up for others, maybe trade for that Papo Australian Shepherd I never did get.

I've had a hard time guessing based on size because many of them are scaled larger, the new frog for example is roughly the same weight as the characters.
