I'm happy to see everybody's enthusiasm for the Boa; it's a great figure. Thank you, Christophe, Anna, Susanne, Ken, and Philip, for your comments!

By the way I like your square pics Very Happy

I just saw this, Christophe. The square pics are filtered photographs using an iPhone App called "Instagram." The filters can really look nice, but I use those filtered photographs on this forum very rarely because the filters often alter the colors, tones, and textures of the animals. I've tried to use instagram pictures only where the appearance of the animal figure hasn't been affected significantly. (That seems to be the case with the Pheasant, Grass Lizard, and Boa pictures above, which are the only "instagram" pictures.)

PostSubject: Kaiyodo Peacock   Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:07 am

I have to share a Kaiyodo "puzzle" figure that arrived a couple days ago -- a Peacock. I can't stop admiring it. The Peacock, and the Pheasant I posted pictures of earlier in this thread, are definitely my two favorite Kaiyodo figures to date. They are both just lovely.

Yes,would agree that Kaiyodo make many great models and with such detail.I have a small number including Stellers Sea Eagle,Masked Plam Civet,Leopard Cat,Raccoon Dog,Narwhal and Japanese Serow.The detail is fantastic and also very accurate for such small models.Its just a shame they havent extended their range to Europe as sure there would be many buyers!!

I've never seen that peacock before and how unusual to have it's tail down! It's beautiful, congratulations Scott!!

Andreas: Thank you!

Taylor: It really is a shame that Kaiyodo hasn't expanded their range of availability. I'd be buying them like a fiend if they were easily accessible in the U.S. As it is, finding them reasonably priced on eBay is a bit of a chore. They are often ridiculously overpriced.

Harriet: Thank you! I was struck by the pose as well. I actually like the Kaiyodo pose more than the standard Peacock pose with the tail fanned. I think that it's hard to capture the beauty of the fanned feathers in plastic. It ends up feeling heavy.

sauroid: Thank you! I agree: totally addictive.

Ken: Thank you so much!

Caiyodo birds look monumental! What a Face I believe no other brand is making them as nice as Caiyodo. Unless they look tremendous in pictures. Thanks for sharing this wonderful peacock with us and is nice to see how proud you feel owning it. Very Happy

Thank you very much Roger!! I might be biased, but I think they look as good in person as they do in pictures. I'm now looking into getting the Kaiyodo Kestrel. I've only seen pictures, but it looks very nice. (Harriet has a lovely [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].) I was just getting interested in the old retired Schleich birds of prey when I discovered the Kaiyodo ChocoQ series figures and I got entirely sidetracked. I would also love to get one of the two Kaiyodo Crows, but they seem to be very hard to find (and absurdly expensive when I do see them listed on eBay).

(Harriet and Crow, please let me know if you'd prefer that I not link your posts on these figures. I'd be happy to edit this comment.)

Both are great choices Scott, the kestrel is the more common and an absolute beauty Cool Your favorite KAIYODO crow seems awesome and less rare than the other one Wink

KAIYODO's prices are often outrageous on eBay now, but some models are like retired sCHLEICH, very rare and really sought after Suspect

Here is my Jungle Crow, not the best and expensive Laughing Laughing Laughing

There's one for sale on eBay right now, but it's priced at nearly $40. I've used that seller several times and think he's excellent, but despite that, I haven't reached the stage...not yet at least...where I'm comfortable shelling out that much. If I ever find a less costly alternative, I will definitely let you know.

Speaking of big spending, I received this item in the mail today. I am quite frankly drunk with delight to have it. It is marvelous.

The Kaiyodo-made Bongo from the "Collections of the National Science Museum."

Thank you! $40 is a lot for such a small figurine.

The more we get excited about the Kaiyodo figures, the higher the prices go... oh well.

PostSubject: Marbled Eel   Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:06 pm

(Thank you Daria! I just saw your post.)

Here is another Kaiyodo ChocoQ animatales puzzle figure I acquired recently, the Marbled Eel. I've been fascinated by it for a while, in part because Eels freak me out. I love how it is painted to seem slick and wet. I think I need to use a different background to take good pictures of it (the wood surface is not ideal), but hopefully one can still get a reasonably adequate sense for the figure here.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'm still on the look-out for the Crow and I think I may have a line on the King Cheetah, which I would be thrilled to have. I also recently saw a picture of the Doberman and it looked really nice... I am crazy for Kaiyodo.

Even a eel looks so realistic when the maker is Caiyodo! What a Face
Congratulations for your new figure, I hope you find the king cheetah and thanks for sharing with us. Very Happy

And yes...I hope you find the king cheetah too.
