PostSubject: Woohoo! Package day!   Thu May 05, 2011 4:55 pm

They're here, they're here! cheers
I ordered a few things from TGF right before easter, and they finally got here! TGF packages are usually impressively fast, but what with the holidays and then being stuck in customs for a while... well, I'm not a patient person to begin with, so today I dashed home during my lunch break (I live 5 minutes from work) just to check the mailbox. And voila.


I got the Safari Anatotitan! Very Happy And I think I'm in love... what an awesome little model! The new Edmontosaurus will be joining us from MPV at some point, so in the meantime he got the Collecta Muttaburrasaurus as a traveling companion.

Marabous! That's not a bird you see too often, but it's always been a favorite of mine. Could be because of the candy...
Apparently I also bought the Collecta peregrine - it totally slipped my mind. The thing with TGF you tend to overbuy - it's better to get everything that strikes your fancy in case you leave something out and have to pay those hefty shipping and customs charges a second time. Wink

Temptation got the better of me - these new eco domes from Wild Republic were impossible to resist. I mean, T. rex family? Three new ringtailed lemurs? Phony nuclear family structures aside, the models are nice, though the tyrannosaurs are quite bendy and look easily warpable.

Finally the Preisers I've been waiting for more than 6 months finally turned up. Not the seller's fault, in fact his customer service has been impeccable all the way.
Anyway, this is where the more squeamish of you may want to look away. Because there's - and there's no more genteel way of putting this - nekkid dudes.

Yes, it's the customizable man kit! Limbs, heads and torsos that can be combined in all sorts of poses and, that's right, completely naked and anatomically correct. Laughing

The box says 1:25, size-wise they're about halfway between Schleichs and Breyer stablemates. Very nice models made from the same hard plastic as their H0 scale ones, their one major flaw is the prepping (or lack thereof). The seams are pretty noticeable and there are some sprue marks on the inner leg, so they'll need a bit of work before I repaint them.

I thought Preiser makes only those tiny models. Those horses look very nice.

Peregrine looks great, it's on my whishlist for some time.
I agree Sumo, Collecta has a few fantastic birds (e.g. mute swan, barn owl), I hope they'll make more of them in the future :)

Not yet. It's on my MPV wishlist, but it wasn't in stock when I placed my latest order so it got left behind.

I'm surprised such people haven't yet complained on genitals of real dogs and other animals. C'mon, that's all nature.

I'll wait for those measurements patiently, no hurry Wink

Congratulations on your new stuff Sumo, really nice!
Yes, and what about those naked guys, well, that is nature to, we are just another animal, and have some of the same features as other mammals, isn't it?
Nothing wrong with that i think, and to be honest...
We all have or had partners through our lives, and we know how men and women can look, we are no children... Rolling Eyes Laughing
It is 2011 when i am not mistaking... cheers

Back on topic for just a second: I just noticed the Wild Republic lemurs match the current Safari one perfectly, and the baby is the same size as the one from their tube. Good news for you diorama makers!
Very Happy

That's funny, and quite true of us Americans, also... Embarassed

You have a good sense of humor, and of course, Norway is a highly-developed country with many fantastic things, including the Nobel Prize, which is a wonderful thing... cheers

Yes, Norway is a wonderful country, their nature is the most fantastic one can imagine, and Norway have many famous artists like Henrik Ibsen, Edward Munch, Grieg and many more sunny

- but the Nobel Prize, - that is Sweeden Wink
