Got one from the early Ebay seller listings - here's the checklist from the insert:

Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Emerald)
Axoloti (Emerald)
Leopard Shark (Emerald)
Great Hammerhead (Emerald)
Ocean Sunfish (Diamond)
Giant Wolffish (Emerald)
Bigeye Tuna (Diamond)
Beluga Sturgeon (Diamond)
Yellow-eyed Penguin (Super)
Trout Cod (Super)
Sandfish (Sun)
Golden Coin Turtle (Super)
Short Nosed Sea Snake (Golden)
Cape Seahorse (Sun)
Spotted Handfish (Sun)
Tasmanian Giant Freshwater Crayfish (Emerald)
Saimaa Ringed Seal (Emerald)
Giant River Otter (Emerald)

And the Yowies:

Rumble
Boof
Squish
Crag
Ditty
Nap

Here's a breakdown of the rarity categories:

Super Crystal Collectible
Golden Crystal Collectible
Diamond Crystal Collectible
Emerald Crystal Collectible
Sun Crystal Collectible

Presumably they are in declining order of rarity.

The photos on the slip are VERY small so it's hard to tell the quality of the models, but the sandfish I received is very well done.

Thanks a lot for sharing the information with us! I don't know if there is a single figure of my interest despite the big number of interesting species. Maybe the axolotl, let's see what people show to us during next weeks! bounce bounce

I have the sandfish (a sea cucumber) and the Atlantic wolffish (the small image on the paper says giant wolffish, but the species is marketed as the Atlantic wolffish, A. lupus). The sculpt on the wolffish is nice. I have the bigeye tuna and Cape seahorse en route to me. When I have them all, I will image them.

Because Yowies are small, I'm more likely to go for 'smaller' species, so the non-shark fish, amphibians, reptiles, and arthropod (although I will probably go with a Japanese company for the axolotl).

Darn! I was hoping when it said "wolffish" it meant a trahira. Not that marine wolffishes aren't cool, but I have a soft spot for characins. It's a pretty solid assortment at any rate.

I have to wait the pictures, but the seal, otter and penguin are for my collection really must-haves. But I think, it´s the first yowie set that I need beside the hammerhead completely. Even that I´m not really a fis collector, the yowies are always fine and present rare species :)

I don´t have even the complete series 3 + 4 and now there will be already a fith series...what a hard life^^

Very interesting Fallon. I think I will really want the axolotl eventually. Very Happy
I used the chance and used your pictures to open a page on Toy Animal Wiki dedicated to this particular series. It can be found here! - I hope other TAI editors collecting these figures can complete it. The series 4 is also still missing lot of pictures. I which a long life to USA Yowies, they really show interesting species. Very Happy

Hoping my local stores selling down on series 4 means they will soon restock with the new series. Still need to find a tortoise though.

Nope. I've just been buying them off eBay as I see them. Got a sea snake, sunfish, cuttlefish, wolffish, sturgeon and bigeye tuna over the course of a few days.

It sure beats spending loads of money buying them blindly in store. I used to like the surprise of buying them in store but this past series (series 4) I ended up with about 15 duplicates each of the shark, humpback whale, and peccary. I had an awful time getting rid of them all on eBay!

Roger, I've ended up with most of the series 4 shopping for a partner. It will be next week as I have to work straight through tomorrow morning- Monday night, but I can take some pictures for you.
I hear you, Fallon. I don't know how many I've gone through- several dozen anyhow- trying to get a few. I enjoy hunting and will wait for them to appear in stores, but it takes a lot of the fun out of it when you have to spend way too much trying to get something that seems nonexistent.

That would be great but only if you find time. You can post the pictures on series 4 topic or just send to me rogerio504@gmail.com.
By the way, last two from series 5 presented by Blaine were just added. Very Happy

The giant Australian cuttlefish is one of the species that I always wanted to be made into figurine. It's one of my favourite species of cuttlefish! My wishes come true, they did one!! And a well done one! Do you know the size of it?

@Pardofelis the mantle is 3.5 cm; given that the actual animal has a mantle up to 50 cm, that would make it 1:14 or so? Correct me if I am messing up the math :-)

That cuttlefish is a must have for me.
Has anyone seen these in stores yet, or seen a picture of the packaging intact? It would be nice for hunting if they're visually distinct from series 4, and given the apparently different eggs, I'm hopeful.

They're here! Saw 1 box of them today at a local Walmarts. The tray has a penguin on the front left, if the clerks bother replacing the tray. Foil does not have the white band around the lower belly of the monster. The chocolate looks like it came out of the same mold as last season, but the eggs are small in it and it does make it easier to remove the chocolate without it sticking- or to crush the chocolate around the egg! Here is a pic of some of the intact packages:
Yowie USA Series 5 IMG_1855_zpsfk5gxiw5
So far, I got 1 monster (will go to a kid), 2 yellow-eyed penguins (1 already spoken for, other is available) and a trout cod which I will keep. Here are pics of the penguin and cod, you are free to use them Roger unless you'd rather wait for better.

Awesome! Thank you for posting pictures of the foil. I was wondering how it might be different from Series 4. I will watch for these. Hopefully people bought a ton of Series 4 for their kids Easter baskets so my area gets Series 5 soon.  rabbit Laughing

FINALLY found these at my local Walmart. I got the sea horse, hammerhead, sunfish, and cuttlefish. Very exciting but I still haven't found the elephant seal and mandrill from the 4th series, a little worried I won't before they disappear. I really just need the sturgeon and axolotl now from this series.

Well, I don't know about the crystal rarity rating... I just got another penguin and another trout cod. The cod is spoken for but does anyone want a penguin or two? They're supposed to be the rarer ones, but this tray seems loaded with them! (They came from the same tray that my earlier ones did) Besides them, I got a sturgeon and tuna which are spoken for. This series is really up my alley, sorry bank account!

Shopped at the same Walmarts today and got 3 figures- a leopard shark, and 2 golden coin turtles. Both the turtles are claimed, but scratch scratch  aren't the 'super' rated figures supposed to be the rarities, like the Burmese tortoise last round? They seem to be almost all I'm getting!
I will take a picture tomorrow for Roger.

My area finally got Series 5. I am so pleased with the detail on these.  Applause

But I also got duped into buying some old Series 3 from Walmart the other day! I had not thought any of those were still around, but I was wrong. The foils look nearly the same except the net weight is 0.8 oz on the front of the foil for Series 5, while it is 1 oz for Series 3. Also, the expiration date for Series 3 was Sept 2019 while Series 5 had a 2020 expiration date.

But I don't expect that many others will run into this. My area obviously has more issues selling these in a timely manner for whatever reason. Laughing

I have really enjoyed Series 5, but since I love aquatic creatures that is no surprise!

Jessica, as of April at least I'd still seen Series 3 in a few stores- it's not just you! The Series 5 I've seen so far have had expiration dates of June or July 2020. The latest of the 4s has been May 2020. And the Burmese tortoise, it feels heavy but rattles quite a bit when you shake it.

Thank you for the tip! I will try that for the tortoise. Lots of Series 4 still around. Very Happy

But I also got duped into buying some old Series 3 from Walmart the other day! I had not thought any of those were still around, but I was wrong. The foils look nearly the same except the net weight is 0.8 oz on the front of the foil for Series 5, while it is 1 oz for Series 3. Also, the expiration date for Series 3 was Sept 2019 while Series 5 had a 2020 expiration date.

But I don't expect that many others will run into this. My area obviously has more issues selling these in a timely manner for whatever reason. Laughing

Thanks much for the .8 oz. tip - that saved me a ton of time. My local Walmarts and Targets throw the new in with the old constantly - you really have to look at the labels for the weight to make sure you're getting Series 5.

I've gotten a couple figures now with different pamphlets- they're in multiple languages. Do the Aussie issues have these inserts, or are theirs the same as the US ones? One of these came with a figure I bought off eBay, the others have all been local purchases.
