I just noticed that I've gotten a lot (in my scale at least!) of animal figures during March. I wanted to share them with you guys.
First, lovely trades from lovely people. Thank you so much Mihnea, Emilia and Philipp![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(sorry the pics are kinda blurry, I didn't realize that until I uploaded them to my computer...)
I got my first Science & Nature figure, yay!
I got kinda inspired with the leopard cub's retro look that I had an Easter themed photoshoot with him.
For no particular reason, I entered to Safari's Facebook Easter Photo Contest.. You can see the photo [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
. Even if the contest doesn't have anything to do with photography (it's more like advertising Safari's Facebook page..), I'd be happy if you clicked 'like', if you like the photo :''D Anyway, that's enough for the shameless plug..
The squirrel I got from Mihnea is even a variant to my old one! The ones that are sold here in Finland, are all so flat-coloured compared to this one..
I'm so happy that my first variant is my favourite animal! : D[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Then I got some Re-Ment animals. Even though I really love blind bags, I would have loved to get the lion cubs instead of the male lion...
I know it's higly unlikely, but if anyone has doubles of the lion cubs and wanted to trade.... *hint hint*[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Last weekend, I went to a local flea market. At first I was kinda disappointed, because there was absolutely nothing interesting in there... Then I found a box of brand new Schleich animals. Of course I'd rather liked to find some retired and rare ones from the flea market, but decided to spend all my cash there. Since they were a lot cheaper there than in stores (the little ones were 1 or 1,5€)... There was nothing I was particularly looking for (except the kid goat), but I bought some that I liked a lot, but wouldn't necessarily buy them full-priced.

But yay, I got my first 2012 animals!
Thennn.. One day I visited a thrift store. Usually there's nothing there. But I found a Schleich orca. I was surprised that this model isn't retired yet... I think that this one is kinda old, since the ones that I've seen in the shops look and feel somewhat different... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It's not in perfect condition and far too big for my collection, but it cost basicly nothing so I bought it...
And here comes the best one! (from the same thrift store as the whale...)
This has nothing to do with my figure collecting. Even if I didn't collect animal figures, I would have still bought it, since I collect everything cool. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I love love love it!<3 So kitsch!
