We were gifted with a new brand, called Southlands Replicas,  from our friend Jason & Family! A new world of animal figures of Australia was born and we should all feel quite happy! Very Happy 
I am even happier, so I now am also an owner of these wonderful figures thanks once more to Susanne's non measurable generousity that gave me them all!!!
All? No, can you spot something unusual in this group? scratch
Yes, there is a new tiny partner, a lovely platypus. Jason just gave me a prototype of it and allowed me to be the first owning and presenting it to the collecting community! cheers
That's a very appreciated gesture and I feel very honoured. Very Happy 



Once there is a huge effort to put all figures at a very reasonable scale, the platypus needed to be done in very small size. It is actually a 1:12 scale but it works perfectly with the standard 1:15 scale used in this line. To keep it in 1:15 scale, it needed to be even smaller.
At the moment I don't have any figure from other major companies to compare but you can see it in my hand and also compared with a AAA battery. 
I am not a completist and I use to collect only a few figures from each brand but this time I am almost sure I will want to collect all Southlands Replicas.
Notice all the detail and effort in terms of finishing quality that is put in these figures and see how wonderfully they work as a collection. flower 
I really recomend to everyone to collect them, you can find through Minizoo shop and, as the company is expanding, you can find these figures in other known online shops too.
My huge thanks to Susanne and Jason! I am glad I could present it in the first Saturday of March that is the National Platypus Day! cheers

Thanks Andreas! I know that a platypus is not exactly the most exciting species for your zoo but I truly recomend it to you. I know you are not also a completist but you won't regret if you decide to get the whole series. Very Happy

On forum it was true once a new released platypus was presented for the first time to the public. Laughing
There isn't an official day of the platypus actually but it was a promotion made by Disney Channel some years ago. As it was held at the first Saturday of March, so yesterday could be one of them. It is a discontinued initiative, you can find more here! :)
Though, we can still celebrate the animal here! Laughing

Thanks, I do really want them all too if possible. The kangaroo looks extraordinary, the Tasmanian devil is powerful and the mountain possum adorable. Let's see what is eing released together with this platypus. bounce
