PostSubject: Safari for a bargain    Fri Dec 02, 2011 11:58 pm

I won a bunch of great new safaris for a realy good price a few weeks ago.

There were 8 safaris in the lot, wich cost me just under 20euro, and not just "regular" ones, but both big IC and WW cheers

A huge, realy good looking lizard

A bat, think it a IC. It´s a nice figurine, but I would have liked it better if it had wires in the wings. they are to flappy No

Yes, it realy is Very Happy Just wich it would happen more often Laughing

I was realy luckey this time, as safari is very unknown here in sweden, and on tradera (swedish e-bay), almost nobody put bids on safari animals, only schleich.
So on the rare occation that somebody is selling safari animals there, you can make a good find
(now, dont come buying things on tradera, thats my territory Twisted Evil Rolling Eyes )

Yes, I agree, the polar bear is realy good Very Happy

But my favorite is the cobra, I just love that one, it looks soo real I love you I love you I love you

@Roger; Suspect You wouldnt dare Suspect tongue

@Susanne; Thanx Very Happy

@Viven; Maybe becaus it´s brown geek The funniest thing is, that al the animals had their tags still on, so they could just have read the tag, and then known what animal it was Rolling Eyes

PostSubject: Omg! what a suprise!   Tue Dec 13, 2011 8:26 pm

I was sent an advertising e-mail from a swedish internet shop that sells toys, and I thought I´ll check it out.
I didnt expect to find anything exiting there, I have bought there befor, about half a year ago, and they only had mostly made in china products, nothing fansy.

But what did I find when I got there?

Old moterey bay! Authentics! (probably newer versions) Carnegie collection, including the human figurine! And wanishing wilds! Shocked Shocked Shocked

All of a sudden, I was around 80euro short, and now have some great addition coming drunken

These additions include;

*Carnegie collection Australopithecus man (I wanted to buy a few, if any of you were interested, but they only had one left No )
* Monterey bay white whale calf, grey whale calf, hammerhead shark and sea otters
* Autentics sea animals and wild animals (newer versions, but still)
* Wanishing wild polar bear family

I´m soo happy (althou broke Laughing ) and cant wait untill they arrive bounce drunken

Here are the link, guys Very Happy

It seems like they ship to all over the world *krossing fingers*, so you should be able to order.

Some translation; Djur = Animals, 1euro = ~10 swedish kronor, 1 USDollar = ~6 swedish kronor

So 39,50 and 49:- would be how much in US Dollars? If shipping is 200 SEK to Denmark, I can only imagine how much it would be to the USA Neutral

Susanne; Damn, that was expensive Shocked But the shipping wasnt eaven cheap to sweden (althou not thet expensive) I think I payed about 8 euro for the shipping.

Orcagirl26; 39,50 is about 5,6 us dollar and 49:- about 7dollars (I counted as 1dollar beeing 7swedish kronor, as the course go up and down al the time)

Roger; Your welcome Very Happy maybe I can post a comparison pic when I get them :) Any specific animal?
