PostSubject: Wild Republic Polybag Desert   Sat Sep 23, 2017 8:16 pm

I need your help with some species for a newly discovered Wild Republic Polybag, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Desert Collection. Here is a picture from Amazon:

Wild Republic Polybag [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Desert Collection

I added them to TAi like this:


  • Bactrian Camel
  • Black-Tailed Jackrabbit
  • Coyote
  • Scorpion
  • Tarantula

I especially need help with the scorpion and tarantula, because I have no knowledge about arachnids. But I have questions about the coyote, too. Here is mine:

When I got this figurine from Karin, I had no idea from which Polybag it came. It reminded me of a maned wolf. But now that I know it belongs to the Desert Collection Polybag, a maned wolf seems to be strange, for they do not belong in the desert. A coyote seems more acceptable. Here pictures from a maned wolf and a coyote together:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It has the big round-ish ears from a maned wolf, including the inner white fluff. It has white fur on its breast an black fur on its shoulder/back. But it hasn't got the black legs, like a maned wolf. It has quite long legs, but both coyotes and maned wolves have quite long legs. The anatomy seems not 100% maned wolf, but I think we can agree we've all seen Wild Republic figurines that aren't anatomically correct Laughing

Please let me know your thoughts! cheers

It could also be a maned wolf disguised in Black-backed jackal.

The tarantula appears to be modeled after the Mexican red-kneed tarantula, Brachypelma smithi. The scorpion is harder to discern from the image, however the sculpt looks like a Pandinus sp. (emperor scorpions). The fact that it is brown, means it could be P. cavimanus. However, I think this is another example of 'sculpting like one species/painting like another' (something K&M is good at...).

And yes that is a regular ole coyote.

I will search for this bag so I can buy the arthropods :)

I found it [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on Amazon and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in another webshop, but it seems unvailable/out of stock  Neutral

It sure looks like a black-backed jackal! But I wouldn't describe the African savannah as a 'desert' Laughing Coyote it is, than!

Thank you very much for your insight! Always helpful to have some experts around Very Happy
What do you think will be most 'logical', to put the scorpion in TAi as a emperor scorpion or as a Pandinus cavimanus? scratch

Good luck, I hope you'll be able to find it!

I can't help to be a bit disappointed, I know coyotes are scarce on TAi as well, but I just really hoped it would be a maned wolf Laughing Well, maybe more luck in the future Razz

Black-backed jackals are deserts inhabitants but they can live in prairie or savannahs without suffering , like coyotes Wink Their kidneys are well adapted for water deprivation.

I should really do some research on jackals, it seems Suspect

Thanks for all the comments, everyone! cheers

In a forum with so many enthusiasts of wild dogs, it is surely an interesting polybag you've found. :) My opinion is that it is a coyote. Figure is not perfect enough to warrant a 100% sure opinion but I find it closer to a coyote than a black-backed jackal and it doesn't look like a maned wolf at all to me. Is there any chance that you provide a picture from the top where we could see the back. Is there a dorsal strip on it or can you see a cross on sholders when watching from top? Well, maybe not but it is also not a surprise that some markings are not represented in polybag figures once they are not always the best as you commented. :)

To me, the "wild dog" is a sculpted Maned Wolf that was finally painted into a coyote to fit in the polybag.

I'll provide a picture as soon as I'm home again! But indeed, I'm not sure that the lack or presence of markings will be any help in knowing the intention of Wild Republic Laughing

That doesn't even sound crazy, looking to the figurine Laughing
