PostSubject: Southlands Replicas 00001 Thylacoleo walkaround by Kikimalou   Sat Mar 11, 2017 3:14 pm

Okay it isn't the most recent Southlends replicas model and we already seen good pics of the guy on STS.

Alas I'm getting older so I don't work as quickly as I would like. On the other hand, the older I am the more I do what I want when I want Laughing

So what about the "Marsupial lion"? This animal roamed Australia 1.6 million to 40,000 years ago. This was a Diprotodont marsupial, just like koalas and kangaroos, but it was a fierce and powerful meat eater. Pound for pound, Thylacoleo carnifex had the strongest bite of any mammal species living or extinct; a T. carnifex weighing 101 kg (223 lb) had a bite comparable to that of a 250-kg African lion. It also had extremely strong fore limbs, with retractable, cat-like claws, a trait previously unseen in marsupials. It also possessed enormous hooded claws set on large semiopposable thumbs, which were used to capture and disembowel prey. The long muscular tail was similar to that of a kangaroo. Specialized tail bones called chevrons allowed the animal to tripod itself, and freed the front legs for slashing and grasping.

A lot of fossiles exists so his anatomy is well known and rock paintings show us what the animal looked like.





Jason made a very good work, his model is very accurate and the pose isn't static Applause

And now a few pics

It is really wonderful when you have time to show one of your figures in your walk arounds! Very Happy
It is again a fabulous presentation of one of the most exciting releases of extinct animals in these last times.
Marsupial lions are very curious animals, the way how their hindlimbs look underdeveloped when compared with their forelimbs is quite strange. Mainly when we take kangaroos as a reference. Laughing Evolution was again sublime both in divergent and convergent ways. Very Happy
I have it too thanks to Susanne and I am never tired of saying that Southlands Replicas is one of the most exciting happenings of the recent story of this hobby. I think the panorama is currently very rich, we have lots and lots of good figures being continuously released and it is not easy for a new brand to find some place in this business. Southlands brought a concept with a single continent being represented, recovered the idea of the use of figures at a certain scale , together with a top sculpting quality and a irreprochable manufacturing despite the challenging patterns and poses. I will really try to collect them all as long as this phylosophy is preserved. Very Happy

Thank you Rogério, Andreas and Kosta sunny

@Rogério: Yes this Thylacoleo is a very pleasant surprise from Jason, Southlands Replicas is the big great news for 2017 in my collector life. Knowing our friend, I know we will see wonders in our shelves. First time animal toys, great pose and sculpt, great painting and cheap price… What else?
About the beast, of course it is very different from a kangaroo but i think the weirdest is the kangaroo. affraid Koalas and wombats are also diprotodonts. Wink

@Kosta: Funny face indeed for a terrible predator. On thing I especially like on the face are the eyes, they are not catlike and I enjoy it.

You're right as usual, kangaroos are really the weirdest, while most marsupials have some references to non related animals due to morphological similarities, f.i., this marsupial lion, Tasmanian wolf, koala bear, etc. kangaroos are not similar to anything we know. If we were not as used to them due to media, I am sure we could easily get shocked watching it for the first time. Very Happy

I agree with you. It certainly was done with a exceptional amount of research, and it shows. I also have this sculpt and it is stunning. So are the walk around photos.
