so far I only have a black jaguar... that isn't even the 2nd series it advertised as, is it? He'll go in a trade box anyhow, it's the pupfish and manatee I want. Others will have to see first.

Went to TAI, saw that the jaguar IS 2nd series... Embarassed but I picked up one today and it was the pupfish yay cheers ! It's the only one I really truly wanted, but I'll pick up more as I can. I'll be happy to trade/sell as I get them, I never did get the clownfish from the 1st series and wanted it. Of course, I expect some of these others will grow on me if I see them though.

Jessica, do you mind if they don't have papers? I've started to sometimes see Series 1 secondhand, and they never have papers. If you don't mind, I'll keep my eyes open.

No, I don't need the papers. Maybe they will start showing up second hand in my area, too. Thanks for keeping an eye out! Smile

PostSubject: Australian and US 2 Yowies    US series Yowies swap topic EmptyWed Jun 14, 2017 8:59 pm

Has anyone here seen the Bald Eagle? I've bought about four boxes here in Australia (and have some spares) but never seen one. Also, I was told the Palila hadn't been released, but I just got two of them in the UBD of Sep 2018. Perhaps they were only just released?
I have a special ask, I would love the collectors poster for US All American Collection, I can't get it in Australia. I have spare Aussie yowies and a spare Aussie poster if anyone would like to trade, or I'm happy just to buy one.
Also happy to buy US 2 yowies to complete my sets if anyone has any spare to sell? I need another Palila (I am doing sets for friends here and in Japan). Also, we need Boof, Black Footed Ferret x2, Horned Guanx2, Florida Manatee, South American Tapir x2, and of course Bald Eagle x3. Not expecting to get even one of those Eagles though lol
Someone told me that there was an English Bulldog released in one of the American Series, is that true?
Sorry about lots of questions, and if they should be in a different part of the forum please let me know. I have a thread about Aussie Yowies somewhere lol!
Cheers everyone.

Please do not be sorry ! Questions are good in a forum Wink

I also have a question , - what is UBD ? Shocked
Not sure what you mean by "poster", but you can see the All American Yowies HERE Very Happy
An English Bulldog in an All American series of endangered wildlife , - somebody is pulling your leg lol!

I hope you find the missing models for yourself and your friends Very Happy

Thank you Susanne! Firstly, a UBD is a Use By Date or perhaps a Best By Date. It's on the sticker at the bottom of the yowie. A poster is the paper sort that you can pin up on your wall. Rather than one that you download and then print out.
I think the person who told me about the English Bulldog meant the first US series, was that called the North American Collection? Maybe his leg was being pulled by Wayne Loxton who told him this! He worked in with Wayne to produce the new Yowies in the US when they first came out so he should have known what he was talking about!
I hope that maybe someone on the forums here may be able to help us complete our sets! Is there somewhere online that people buy boxes from?
Cheers, Chris cat

Chris, the first US series was about Endangered wild animals and you can see them here!
The bulldog is much probably from this new series of real pets suggestedby Yowie collectors but I don't know how advanced it goes.
It is called My Protected Species| Very Happy
As a Yowie completist, maybe you could help us providing some pictures to complete the information at Toy Animal Wiki, the site that I and Susanne linked to you and that intends to be a guide for collectors of animal figures. Very Happy

I don't think I've ever seen a poster for them... scratch just the boxes where all the candies are.

I remember awhile back- maybe 3 months ago or something like that- Wilorvise here posted an Earl the Bulldog she got from a standard lot of series 2 Yowies at a store. So they aren't a myth, but are probably quite rare (that's the only one I've ever heard of). Maybe that one escaped accidentally?

I wouldn't mind helping you find pieces; I've had eagles pass through my hands several times but tend to give my spares to kids after awhile. Embarassed It can take me awhile to find them though. I think NightElf here has some extras, you can try her and maybe Blublub or Takama also. (atm I have a ferret, palila and prairie hen extra)

From the want list, I currently have two Tapirs and one Bald Eagle I just got. I will nab a few more eggs from Walgreens this weekend if they have any (I'm still hunting for the vaquita, plus a bulldog would be really neat if the are out there). I haven't seen any posters in my area, but I will keep an eye out. What a Face

I will try and pick some up at Walmart this weekend also. Wish for luck! Laughing

So this is your total wantlist, Chris?
-Palila
-Boof monster
-Blackfooted Ferret x2
-Horned Guan x2
-Florida Manatee
-South American Tapir x2
-Bald Eagle x3

Looks like between two of us, we have the palila and tapirs knocked out, along with one ferret and one eagle. We should be able to get this done!

The only place I've ever noticed entire boxes being sold is eBay- maybe Amazon has them too?

The palila was one of the earliest pieces I bought, late last year. I don't know why it's been so hard down there to find.

Edit here's the link to Wilorvise's thread on the bulldog...http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t18176-maybe-a-new-series-coming-up

Hello I just managed to find this thread again with offers to help with my US yowies! Thanks to Jessica and Pipsxich. I actually just messaged Jessica before I found this. I am really keen to finish my set and also sets for two friends. Also I am interested in getting some more US 1 yowies. I will happily buy or trade for Aussie yowies, old and new. I even have a lot of US 2 spare lol! So to confirm my list now is
-Palila x2
-Boof Yowie Man x2
-Blackfooted Ferret x3
-Horned Guan x3
-South American Tapir x3
-Bald Eagle x3
And Eric the Bulldog x3. He is what's called a Chase animal released with the second series. I believe pet owners entered a competition to get their pet featured.
Of course if it's too hard to get that many, whatever can be obtained will be great. I'm also happy to buy full boxes unopened and see how I go!
Thanks again! Hopefully I get notified of any replies this time, I hadn't seen any of these.

PS buying a box just means buying 12 in a box from a retail store :-) The boxes are open but they are convenient for packing. Sealed boxes can be bought here on eBay but they are the older June date which wasn't very good for the rares.

@Duck-Anch-Amun I would be happy to sell you a parrot and goose from Series 3. Shipping to the EU is generally about $14 minimum, unfortunately Sad

@Attis same as above; I would be willing to sell you a pangolin, but again shipping is expensive from US to EU.

In either case if you want to wait until I have some Series 4 figures for combined shipping that's fine too :) PM me if interested.

Still no series 4 at my local stores. I have tried Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and Winco, although I just realized I forgot to check Safeway. bounce

Any other places I should try?

Not that I know of - very strange, since as they say here in Minnesota you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a box of series 4 at the first three you mentioned.

Are you sure that you're actually not seeing the new series? They aren't very well marked - you have to look very closely to the box and labels to see where it says "New Series" or something like that.

I've only seen them at Target so far (upstate New York), and the box has a mandrill on it, which Series 3 didn't. If they aren't displayed in the box I don't think I'd be able to tell.

The foil wrapper of Series 4 has a white band with the WCS logo, and all of the ones I've gotten had an expiration date of Dec 2019.

Updated my trade list in the first post. I'm likely done blind-buying these and am hoping to trade to complete the collection. I'm going to list them on Ebay for sale in the next few days, so if you're interested please PM me. Thanks!

I have been looking for that. The stores sometimes don't change out the boxes in the checkout lanes, so I check the foil bellies. None in my area yet. They must have a backlog of Series 3 to sell. I guess I need to be patient.  Laughing  bounce

Walmart in my town finally got Series 4, but only has one box out so far (the rest are Series 3). I bought a handful of the eggs, but it's so close to Christmas I put them under the tree. I waited this long already, so I guess I can wait a little longer. Laughing

Wow, that took a long time! But at least that will be a nice Christmas surprise :)

Yeah, be very careful. Both Target and Walmart in my area tend to mix in old series along with the new. If it's an open box you'll want to look for that white band every time.

No joke! Walmart almost got me last time doing that. Luckily I noticed before I got to the checkout. Rolling Eyes

I updated my list again. I don't think I will be buying more Yowies from the store for a while. I'm pretty sure at this point I will end up with lots of duplicates of my current trade fodder if I do. Maybe the tigers/mandrills/tortoises, etc will be easier to find in future batches?

Also, is anyone else less than enthused about the new softer plastic Yowie is making them with? I don't notice it on some figures, but it is particularly yucky/cheap feeling on the guanaco and the ground cuckoo. pale

I hear you Jessica - either they have some serious distribution issues with this series or they've moved to a "chase" model.

After something like four boxes I have never seen an orangutan or star tortoise nor have I seen any online for sale. I'm beginning to wonder if/how many of these actually exist. Then again, I thought that about the spray toad and all of a sudden I got bunches.

On the plus side, they seem to SERIOUSLY have reduced the number of Yowies in the mix. That can only be a good thing in my book. In my four + boxes this series I have only gotten two Yowies. Much better, although I really wish they'd eliminate these entirely or, if they must, make these the chase issues.

I haven't really noticed much difference in the quality of the plastic. It has always been a little all over the map, some are resin-like hard plastic (like the rabbit in the first series) and others are flexible (mostly marine mammals). The cuckoo and guanacos that I have seem on the better end of the spectrum. I certainly hope they haven't moved to a new formula that I haven't seen yet.

In any event, I've had good fun collecting these. The quality is above-average and the mix of species is excellent (certainly comparable to the old Playvisions). I'd love to support them as long as they continue issuing new animals, but if this continues I'm out as well. I keep keep going back for a few more but my patience is wearing thin.

Hello and sorry I've been gone so long! I had to move, things have been... messed up... but hopefully things are going up from here! I don't even know where all my things are at the moment, some stuff was stolen, but I will be getting it all out as I can. And now that Photobucket has dropped to a reasonable price, maybe I can post pictures again. (stupid of me, but not being able to figure out a new photo hosting site is part of what threw me down).

I will be helping someone get some US Yowies, and thanks for contacting me about the new release, there are some interesting figures here. Since I completely missed out on the third series, I will post a want ad here of those figures that my partner wanted. As of the past couple days, a Walmart and a Walgreens, it looks like I will have to trade or buy to get those figures for my partner, only found a couple old stock. I will also post extra series 4 figures if anyone would like to trade/buy them. I will ship international. I will sell any of my trade/sale figures for my cost $2.99USD ($2.79 price + .07% sales tax) plus shipping.

I may still have some series 2 figures to trade, but if so I haven't found them yet.


WANTED

Series 1- caracal, no papers/ playwear is okay

Series 4- Mandrill
