Some recent additions: Safari Winner's Circle American Saddlebred (left background); before it a 1997 TOPPS Precious Puppies Chow Chow 09 'Chopsticks' and Kitan Club Nature Techni Colour Nature of Japan vol. 2 01 Shiba; in the center the 09 giant Lake Biwa catfish and 02 Japanese Crested Ibis from the same set; a Kitan Club magnet seahorse (in which the magnet is inside the figure, out of sight! I never knew they were done like this); a King Kong movie merchandise Foetodon; rightmost background a Papo Oviraptor and before it the 1997 TOPPS Precious Puppies Whippet 10 'Speedo' and 1994 M.E.G. Puppy in My Pocket Schnauzer 36 'Gabe'; plus threatening the Saddlebred's rosy wreath (and the Oviraptor's life presumably) are two made in China party favour ankylosaurians armed with particularly formidable sets of teeth - ones going all around their gaping maws.

Thank you to Frana for the M.E.G. and TOPPS dogs and the Saddlebred; and to Mihnea for the Oviraptor and a lovely New-Ray gift Basset hound I forgot to include in the picture (sorry)! The seahorse came as a gift, too, from the eBay seller I got the other Kitan Clubbers from - so thank you very much to him also, even if he is likely to never read this.

Some individual shots:

The catfish is my absolute favourite. It's a surprisingly detailed, flowy sculpt with a finely sculpted lateral line, barbels and a transparent anal fin. It has a mesmerisingly glossy finish of silver-specked, slightly metallic black-blue gradating into a deep purple along the sides. The fish's plump underbelly is a blank white, which (aside from the absence of a base - I'm terribly fond of the academic little faux wood bases some of the Kitan Club series entries come with) is the model's only weak point, I think; I would have liked to see a slight translucency or pearlescence to the plastic, like fish flesh and skin oft have - but nevermind, I can always give it a light dusting of mica myself and be content.

The Toki and Shiba are likewise excellent, excellent models - the Toki's feathering is very finely sculpted and to me ever so pleasantly symmetrically arranged; and the Shiba just exudes character with its finely gestured sculpt and lifelike paintwork. It has a real glint in its eye suggesting mischief, and the softly shaded coat actually looks soft and plush.

The Shiba I've done a small walkaround of - it can be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

It does, doesn't it? I see it too now. I'm afraid the tiny tyrant dinos probably aren't the kind and gentle leader type, either..

That one is the imaginary [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] from the Peter Jackson version of the film King Kong. Here is another shot of him:

The figurine is a smaller version of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by Playmate. It was sold here around the film's release in the local arts-and-crafts/knick knacks store chain Tiimari (currently going under, to my dismay - they'd often carry obscure China animals and interesting polyresin statuettes, so I'm saddened to see them go).

[Edit.: Oh, I didn't remember I'd already posted the individual picture of that Foetodon. Oh well, can't harm to have it here again to supplement the brief info bit, I guess.]

I've had the good fortune of having been able to arrange some splendid trades recently, so despite my scrimping and saving for the new CollectA and Papo releases, I've had some marvellous parcels arrive in the mail. (Thank you Taos and Sortepletter; UK of DDF; and Trista from Figuurifoorumi!) Here are some figurines from the past few weeks:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
From left to right: CollectA 2011 Hatzegopteryx 88441; before it 2007 Primeval Hesperornis; Safari Ltd. Wild Safari alligator 276429; Tedco Dino Horizons Dig Up Dino Stegosaurus skeleton; atop it a 2014 Walking With Dinosaurs 3D blind bag Troodon manufactured by Vivid Toy Group Ltd.; center foreground the Pachyrhinosaurus 'Scowler' from the same series; butting heads with it a Kaiyodo UHA Dinotales Series 1 The Chocolasaurs Collection Brontotherium (Megacerops) 019a; behind the pair a Safari Ltd. 2005 Carnegie Collection Microraptor; and under it an unknown party favour sauropod.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Safari Ltd. 2010 Wild Safari Coelacanth 285729 (Latimeria chalumnae); Country Artists Best in Show Bloodhound CA02455; and Papo recumbent Simmental cow 51151.

Again, a great thank you to all whom I traded with!

Thank you, all, for looking and commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed the bloodhound and hesperornis in particular - both look so decidedly grumpy to me they could probably do with the extra cheer.

Country Artists are a British film specialising in English countryside themed polyresin statuettes, home decor and other knick-knacks. They carry a multitude of different lines, of which the Best in Show series these hounds are part of is but one. The dogs in that series were sculpted by a chap called Paul Szeiler, and come hand-painted in oils. (My bloodhound even had some severed bristles from a paint brush stuck in its paint under its wrinkly chin!)

I like the Bloodhound and the Basset hound too! Have to look out for this brand!  Very Happy 
Do - I quite recommend them! The Best in Show series is in my opinion Country Artists' best mammalian line, sculpting-wise. Also, hello to a new member from a similarly newish one! I remember seeing and admiring your meticulous work on model horse tack on Fallen Leaves a long, long time ago, and by the looks of your avatar picture, you've only improved since then.

A couple of larger trades and a long stretch of photography-preventingly cloudy weather have resulted in my now having a fair bit of backlog to 'report' all at once. The pictures still aren't much good (oh, to have steady sun for a full afternoon!), but if I postponed this much longer, the models would amass into an even longer post.

Thank you to Frana, gogo1004, Susanne, Ricky_in_Tokyo, dinotales0724, DaveScriv, Krista, Ana, Taos and anyone I may be forgetting (NightLioness? Sortepletter?) for trades on this forum; to UK from DDF and a Russian gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous for my trades with them on other forums. If I'm forgetting anyone, you have my apologies - as I say, shown are many months' worth of acquisitions, and my memory on each model's individual provenance may well fail me.


We'll start with some mad fish from Japan (and one squid from Germany)! Altogether:

Some detail shots:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Kaiyodo Aquatales Sunshine Aquarium 04 Asian sheepshead wrasse (Semicossyphus reticulatus). See the gills inside the not-even-a-centimeter-wide mouth? Besides mad detail, the model has most faithfully copied the species' [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

The hatchetfish, too, has the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of shock and utter desolation on its face. Kaiyodo Deep Sea Odyssey Pt. 2 Silver hatchetfish (Argyropelecus affinis).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Colorata Endangered Species - Fossil Fish set 6 alligator gar (Atractosteus spatula), 2nd paint version. These chaps were around when Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus lumbered on the land above, and they're still around quite unchanged!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
A bunch of goldfishy/koi-carpy relatives: the most derived, a Demekin goldfish (by Kaiyodo); a decorative Ōgon carp in the foreground (by Kaiyodo); a tetsu-gyo, wild comet goldfish lookalike (center, by Yujin); and a Japanese silver crucian carp, or gin-buna (Yujin).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Colorata Endangered Species - Fossil Fish set 4 arapaima (Arapaima gigas), 2nd paint version, being all demure.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Yujin Saltwater Fish in Colour, pt. 1 08 royal gramma (Gramma loreto), being very bright.


Next up is the agricultural department. The Cape buffalo isn't domestic yet, I know, but he will be. The Timpo bison..? Alright, he's just to become prehistoric, not domestic.

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

I forgot to include the Jean Höfler nanny goat Ana sent me alongside the JH cattle. Bummer. The little JH mooing cow has a cowbell on although it barely shows.

Travelin' Tex the Texas Longhorn from Susanne I made a new show halter (and an uncivilised nose ring) for:

Britains oldies for customizing from DaveScriv:

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

The scarce Akita from Taos is by Toy Major; the bulky St. Bernhards are Schleich while the daintier is a 3-d puzzle; and the red setter's an unmarked polyresin statuette I picked up for customizing.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Lastly, miscellaneous others. (Particularly: that osprey! I'll show you more of it a bit later once I have the photos ready. EDIT: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the walkaround!)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 6 - Lawson Edition 097a Quetzalcoatlus. If you stood a little in-scale model man next to this one, the fellow would only reach the beast mid-leg. Yes, they were huge! And yet they flew!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
UHA Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 3 - The Chocolasaurs Collection 069 Tapejara (=Tupandactylus) imperator.


I'll be putting up some walkarounds shortly of a few of the models, so I won't post even more individual shots here. Anyway. Those were my recently and not-so-recently acquired treasures. Thank you to all who helped me come by them.
