Apparently my "Oh, I'll be too busy to hang around forums I'm afraid" shtick isn't going to stick, so I thought I, too, might begin a novel acquisitions thread of my own to celebrate lovely newcomers and practice poor photography in. I shall begin with -

The best of mornings. I woke up to birdsong and the sound of my mailbox lid shutting. Then: a fresh pot of black coffee and an hour and a half of unwrapping, assembling and admiring newly-arrived Kaiyodos, followed by another hour of trying to read the day's papers and failing because of gorgeous Kaiyodos. The treasures (in one terrible picture):

This was my first real-life encounter with non-dinosaurian Kaiyodos, and I must admit I'm rather sold. These things are lovely! The utterly gorgeous birds in the background are from Sauroid - thank you! He even included a few gifts; I'm besides overjoyed, quite disproportionately touched. I never realised the Kaiyodo birds are quite this beautiful! (One of the wonderful birds Sauroid sent me isn't in the picture - I forgot him! - but you'll find him [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].)
The massive pack of dogs came as one big surprise blind box from a seller in the USA, who was very sweet and included the wee wabbit (in the foreground) as a gift also. Thank you too, whoever you are!

Oh, there's no such things as coffee and new figurines Cool I'm not very familiar with the Kayodos, but these look wonderful! Interesting species. Those birds look very neat!

Thank you Carola and Susanne! The birds are indeed superb, and I like the Whippet especially as well, even if he is one thin specimen. Sighthounds are a bit of a favourite with me, alongside molossers.

Taos: I will be listing a good number of the doggies up as trade (or sales) candidates later this week, I believe, just to see what happens - so if you want to, feel free to PM me and we can talk about perhaps reserving some of the dogs for you already. The Boxer, though - oh, he's staying. Very Happy

Thank you for commenting, Harriet, Andreas & Anna! That bunny is indeed dangerously cute, Anna. It even has that bewildered stare real rabbits do.

Thank you Chris, Sumo and Kikimalou! I agree, puzzles or not, the Japanese models seem to have a certain lifelikeness down more consistently than most Western brands manage to. I don't know if this can be said to apply to my newest Kaiyodo arrival, though - Mr. Deinonychus may look lively, but hardly alive by anyone's standards:

He was joined in my morning haul by the wonderful New-Ray dogs from Sumo (thank you! You just included them all, then, eh? affraidcheers Come over and raid anytime, but bring tradees. That's how a raid works, yes?) and the small but imposing Papo Boer ram from Yvette (whom - the ram - I simply forgot to include last. Thank you for him, too, Yvette!).

Lots of wonderful additions. My new animals thread is a year behind, I will update it soon though. So no worries if you run short on time, the thread will wait for you to come back.

Thank you Liiolii and Tim! I've been impressed with the Kaiyodo birds, too - the clade seems to lend itself well to the "puzzle" format (as do insects!). Tim: I quite intend to adventure through everyone's collection & acquisitions threads, but it's been slow going thus far. Good to know yours won't be running away before me, though!

I love the Deinonychus Lea!! Wow. I have to get that now. It's not an option. Crap.

(The Papo Boer is one of my favorite models. Congrats on that too!)

Thank you, Scott! I like that Deinonychus immensely, too - Kaiyodo have conveyed a remarkably strong sense of intent and halted, birdy movement in him for "just" a skeletal rig at a standing pose, I think. The Papo Boer is also a little feat of cramming a much larger presence (think angry bears..) into such a relatively dainty model, I find - which I guess rather befits the species, too. They are both definitely stayers-on with me. :)

Thank you everyone! Cyhyraeth, I really like that raptor skeleton, too - it may be my favourite of the Kaiyodo anatomicals I have. Katty, the chap in my avatar is a 1:30 scale Tennessee Walking Horse I customised and painted a long time ago - more of him can be seen [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], if you're interested.

Oh noes! Perhaps you ought to contact the seller and see if he has a copy he might send you an arm off - or, failing that, I'd be more than happy to send you the suitable one on mine (I can easily enough make a cast of the arm for myself before that; I'll likely be customising the model anyway, so it won't matter to me).
Do PM me if you'd like to make arrangements for the latter to happen. I'm traveling at the moment so I may take a bit to respond, mind (which is also why I've still to reply to your last message to me - sorry! I will get back to you, at the latest once I'm back home).

Thank you Lea! I have contacted the seller. No reply, but I'll be patient. It's so kind of you to offer to send me the arm from yours!! Hopefully, that won't be necessary though. Regardless, it is very thoughtful and I really appreciate it. I hope you have lovely travels!

I checked out the photos and he is fantastic!! I didn't even realize that you avatar image was of a model horse. I thought the photo was a painting! You did a great job on him!

Scott: Thank you, I did have good travels indeed. Got to sit in a car a lot, which is always nice. Met two nigh-agreeable people and came off as a stuttering twit, but that's likely because I am a stuttering twit - and at least I came out of it all with new books to read.

Katty: Thank you kindly! He has an equally high-heeled 1:9 big brother currently cooking up (as well as two 1:30 siblings) who shouldn't end up sporting the many flaws he has (he is fairly old work), but it's going to be a while yet before those will get finished. If I ever get them done, I'll post a few shots here, too.


Alright, on to the last few days' haul. I got run over by a car the other week, so instead of putting the compensation towards fixing my bust bike, I bought myself some consolatory goldfish. I also recently received goodies from Taos, Ezhilan and a fellow Finn not on this forum (thank you all!), and the queerly coinciding arrival of this multitude of trade parcels made for what must be the best haul of the summer. (And the last, if I do intend to get that bike fixed before winter.) Behold, if you will:

I can't quite believe I've been trusted to house something as sublime. (I did pay for the privilege, of course..) My pictures do it no justice at all.

PostSubject: Kaiyodo Series 1 Retro Classic brachiosaurus   Koniminiatures' recent acquisitions EmptyThu Jul 11, 2013 11:15 pm

Does anyone recognize this quaint, wee perhaps-Brachiosaurus? He came from Japan (from a seller who presumed the model's make Colorata, which I do have my doubts about) without any papers; is permanently attached to the bottle cap he stands on; and is marked only "Made in China" followed by a few Japanese letters. (If there are any Japanese speakers here who'd like to have a crack at those, I'd be happy to photograph the letters, too.) If anyone knows his origins, I'd be curious to know. He does have a slight Kazunari Araki feel to his physique, but I could be just hallucinating that.

Wow. I clicked your link for "Tennessee Walking Horse" and your paint-up is absolutely lovely!
It is.
It's amazing! But then....I got curious about Tennessee Walking horses and made the mistake of Googling them. I ended up with some Youtube videos that almost made my stomach turn....UGH~!

But anyways..I love the fishes.
The colours and movement in the sculptures are beautiful.
I had some of those ryukin goldfish myself and the sculpt is spot on.

Yep, stack-shod TWHs are an utter, utter abomination. That's why I do them. It's the same with the massively deformed goldfish, really, and a lot of the dog & cattle models I go for.. I suppose chief part of my collecting is like that (I work in animal welfare, so..). It's not so much about celebrating the stuff depicted as it is just one more way of occupying my struggling mind trying to fathom the crap we people pull on non-human animals with such relish.

It's a Kaiyodo Series 1 Retro Classic bottle cap figure. They were all based on Knight and Zallinger art work. I think you're right, if my memory is correct, Kazunari Araki did do the sculpts for these. Wink

Thank you very much for the info, Blackdanter! That came like straight off the shelf of a pharmacy, as they say in Finnish - most impressive! It seems Kazunari Araki did sculpt these, if my extra info quickly gleaned off the Interwebs about the series is correct.

They weren't terribly expensive (at least in my opinion, considering how well-made they are) - most of them cost under $5, postage included. I wouldn't have taken them if they had been expensive, the mingy thing I am. Laughing

Yes, the "big lick", as it's called, is an abhorrent practice. As for the people torturing the horses, I doubt they're much different from your average joe. Likely they've just got different priorities and have (like most people, mind) learned from since they were young to not perceive of non-human animals as entities worthy of inclusion to any moral system, but rather as mere objects. There's big money and social regard to be attained in that particular horse-torturing business, too - like in most animal-torturing businesses around the world.
