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!
