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.

Great additions, congratulations. They've made some very nice dogs it seems, I just have dinos and birds mainly.

Thanks! I was positively surprised with the dogs, too - and even more so with the birds.

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. :)
