My AAA collection, one toy by one Empty
PostSubject: My AAA collection, one toy by one   My AAA collection, one toy by one EmptySat Dec 17, 2016 2:03 pm

I decided to make just one thread for my entire existing AAA collection, I think that I will make separate threads only if I buy brand new toys from the stockist.
All these toys has been used by me as a child, some of them are in a pretty nice shape, some of them have scratches and scuffs, paint marks and stuff like that. I won't show you the ones in terrible condition obviously.
But first a bit of nostalgia: AAA has been the major company sold in my town (located in southern Italy) all along the nineties: sure, you could find some bullyland, some safari carnegie dinosaurs, quite a lot of more obscure brands, remnants from the '70 and the '80, like the Starlux prehistoric mammals; but there was not yet the overpowering Schleich everywhere, actually it was pretty rare.
Here in Italy AAA was stocked by Edilio Parodi, the enterprise which gave us Subbuteo (finger soccer): I still remember the old school catalogues, with their funny translation errors, their different scale animals called "young/juvenile", the glossy cover with those outdated dinosaurs on it. Years later I decided to contact them, they still import AAA animals and they were kind enough to send me a digital version of the catalogue, which contained both the old, rubbery animals, and the (relatively) newer more solid ones, but you already know this story. Now I'm trying to be able, as a private customer, to buy something from them, but the future will give us an answer on that.

Let's start with something I've not seen around too much: the Ostrich. It's a pretty solid figure, with a grassy base and pretty good textures. With a fresh repaint it should look pretty neat, shortening its neck it would even work as a Rhea, in my opinion.

federico, this thread is surely is a good idea! The ostrich is not very commom among our collections indeed. It seems to be a female. Looking forward to see what you have to show to us next. bounce

I would have loved to see a catalogue of AAA, it's all so confusing, they have so many! I have this ostrich and the chick hatching from his egg, it's very nice!

Yeah, it definitely looks like a female!

I love AAA too, it has that old school vide which has a charm of its own, and you have an unbelievable collection of that brand, truly an impressive sight!

You can take a peek on an actual catalogue here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It's not directly from AAA, but from a stockist, but it gives you a pretty accurate idea of what an AAA catalogue would have looked like!

Today's animal will be a really funny one, it's labeled as "Female orang" on my catalogue, and it has a hidden treasure behind her back! She surely doesn't want to share her favourite meal! I don't know if bananas can be actually be found in Borneo or Indonesia in general, but here she goes anyway ahahahah

No doubts whoever sculpted that figure had a lot of fun doing it. I find it very funny and it gives a special touch to that particular figure! monkey
