PostSubject: brontodocus' miscellaneous (non-arthropod) invertebrates   Mon May 07, 2012 10:32 pm

Hi altogether, having joined yesterday and having received such a warm welcome I thought I could start showing some photos of my collection. Well, since I have approx. 1700 figures right now there's no possible way to put them all in one thread... Laughing So there, I guess I should begin a thread of my odd invertebrate figures (I'll better leave the arthropods out here, there are already too many). Let's hope I'll manage to correctly post my first photos here. Ah, yes, no wider than 800 pixels, I'll keep it in mind! :)

Okay, starting with an invertebrate of uncertain relationships to extant phyla...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Dickinsonia costata; the vendozoan Giant Disc-Jelly from the Cadbury Yowies Lost Kingdoms Series A. Length 67 mm, scale is anywhere between 1:0.1 and 1:20, at least the fossil remains are extremely variable in size.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Aequorea victoria; Crystal Jelly (a hydrozoan leptomeduse instead of a "regular" scyphozoan jellyfish) from the Kitan Club Nature Techni Colour Jellyfish Series. Diameter is 45 mm, scale approx. 1:2 - 1:4.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Physophora hydrostatica; "Hula Skirt Siphonophore" (another hydrozoan but this is a colony rather than a single individual) by K&M. Total length 113 mm, scale approx. 1:1 - 1:2.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Physalia physalis; Portuguese Man o'War (also a colonial hydrozoan), the left one is by K&M, the right one from the Kitan Club Nature Techni Colour Jellyfish Series. Length of pneumatophor (the gas bladder) 48 and 49 mm, respectively, scale approx. 1:2 - 1:6.

...and as if that wasn't gelatinous enough already I'm already planning to continue with scyphozoan jellyfish flabbiness, just to get more slimy afterwards when it comes to the molluscs. Eek! affraid Very Happy

Really lovely figures Andre! Thanks for the post. I find interesting the different ways the jellyfish are presented. I really like the Kaiyodo configurations. And the K&M stand seems pretty as well. The last model, the Bullyland, also looks very nice on its stand. Is it just balanced there? Looks precarious.

Scott, the stand is the INVICTA blue whale stand Wink

Andre, this collection is really amazing, the K&M and Kitan club are really impressive. I remember seeing them on JAUCE, but we all need to make choice Rolling Eyes

Could you share an " all together" pic ?

Thanks, Scott & Christophe! :) Yes, the stand was the one that came with the Invicta Blue Whale and the Ichthyosaurus. The K&M Mastigias is displayed on one of these clear transport supports that come with some Safari Ltd. figures, I believe that's the one from the Roadrunner but I can't remember exactly. Oh, and I can also make a group photo, of course. :) Oh, and actually Jauce is where I've got my Kitan Club jellyfish from, they're made of a very soft material. I'm a little undecided about these straps, though.

It seems than the new KITAN and YUJIN sets have straps now, for the turtles, lizards and fishes I think it is not a happy choice... But for the jellyfishes, I'm still searching how to show them without straps scratch

From what I've seen, most sets come with and without straps, e.g. the Kitan Club ladybird beetles, poison dart frogs, etc., but I've never seen the Kitan Club jellyfish without straps. Yes, the eyelets where the thread is put through are a little annoying, especially when the figures do not really need to be displayed hanging. Neutral I don't understand the purpose of these straps anyway, are we supposed to hang them around our necks? scratch Given the soft material of the jellyfish I'm sure they will look awful within a short time, I guess the paint might rub off and they may attract lint and dust easily.

It is a bad news, since we haen't got a lot of choice among companies for this kind of stuff. What a Face

No, it's the usual colour. I make my photos without flashlight and the light source comes from above to give it realistic shadows but this causes some models to look different than stock photos, apparently.

Wow, how fascinating, colorful and "fantastic" creatures! Really some of them looks like from the fantasy world Shocked Shapes and colors of these animals are incredible and so inspiring cheers

All figures which You showed here I see first time, and I only knew very few of the species You showed here Andre :) It's wonderful how rich is the World of nature. Thank You for showing photos of these fantastic figures bounce bounce cheers

Now I must be very careful to not catch another collecting bug! And say to myself: Anna You not collect invertebrates, not collect invertebrates, not collect invertebrates Shocked Embarassed affraid

I like a lot the way this topic is built showing replicas of many unusual species with scientific names, size and scales. It turns the subject even more interesting and we can learn a lot with it. Also the pictures are really great. Not being my subject as a collector I must confess I enjoyed a lot seeing these strange creatures. Something Portuguese here is also a good news. Very Happy
Thanks for showing, I hope to see in future more topics like this. cheers

Yay, thanks again! :)
It's not that easy for me to make group photos at the moment (most of my figures aren't on display but rather in storage boxes and our flat gets a new room so the craftsmen are here nearly all the time) but today I tried to make a group shot of the ones already posted. The Aequorea victoria is missing though, I just couldn't find it. scratch Note to self: Never ever place these Kitan Club jellyfish next to a bag of wine gum when the kids are at home, you might lose a few figures... Shocked Wink

So here they are. I've also included a fossil replica of Dickinsonia costata next to the Yowies figure. :)
