They are very nice, indeed. I'm slowly trawling through the entire Dinotales saga, picking out the ones that most please me. The fleshed-out Protocera and Oviraptor are both series 5 releases and the series is indeed a very fine one, but I doubt I'll ever go for trying to collect all of the figurines in it (or I hope I won't - oh, the expenditure!) - I'll just cherry-pick my way through it. :)

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Widukind: I too do recommend that swellshark. It is a beautiful, well-engineered model. The composition of the coral may be a tad flat, but the model's finishwork, especially on the egg case, is very detailed. The translucent plastic has layered striations and mottling that shows beautifully as light passes through the figurine. The body of the hatching shark can also be seen dimly through the "collagen". I also appreciate the point in the shark's life cycle that they've chosen for the figurine; rather than an adult shark merely swimming along, we get to see the ornamental "devil's purse" and the way it clings by its tendrils to the coral environment as the hatchling struggles free of it.

I see what you mean with the groupings, I can completely follow your thoughts :)
But away from the sad subjects...

Those are wonderful additions! The Dobermann looks absolutely handsome cyclops I just love that noble shape. Despite that cutting the ears ( and tails - don't know what it's called in English) is bad, I think.. not sure why it's done to the dogs.... But it does look good with the pointy ears, I have to confess! silent And since it's a replica... I guess it's ok.

Sawllshark is very interesting. Googled photos - and how fascinating it is!

And nice with a levitating demon dog, even though he's just doing tricks Very Happy

No problem, Widukind! I should have more photos of the shark up on my website in the next week or two, if you need additional views before deciding.

Thank you for your comments, Carola! I agree the Dobermann is a handsome devil. I, too, find ear cropping and tail docking repugnant yet the resulting look oft quite pleasing. The mutilated "look" could, as I understand, be more or less achieved with relative ease in real dogs through sheer crossbreeding followed by a few generations of "back-breeding" to regain the overall appearance typical of the breed (I wish I could find the website.. it had a photographic timeline of one breeder's progress towards naturally pointy-eared Dobermanns, I think it was..). No cutting up of live animals would be necessary. Apparently breed purists find the idea abhorrent, though, and obviously outnumber - or outshout in any case - the relatively sane.

It's a pretty alien mindset when even cutting out a part of a live animal's spinal column for fashion is seen as preferable to mixing a bit of one freshly-invented 'breed' into another.

Wonderful new additions Lea! I particularly love the Protoceratops and the Oviraptor by Kaiyodo. I just got that Oviraptor recently as well! Same color scheme too. I love it. Congratulations on so many wonderful finds!

Thank you for the comments, everyone - and sorry to reply so late (recently any new forum comments haven't been showing up highlighted for me). Kikimalou: I'll give the forumers a walkaround of the swellshark, sure, when next I'm photographing models. [EDIT 19.11.2013: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].]

Scott: Ha, you got her too! She's a very nifty figurine, isn't she? Probably my favourite non-skeletal Dinotales dino, actually - an intriguing species, lively restoration and skilful engineering.

Carola: I'll try to dig up that site, although I wouldn't hold my breath for it - it was rather an old one. If my memory serves me correctly, though, it can be found through the comment discussions in a post or two on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. The place offers useful information about the dog breeding world overall. I recommend the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of the same name, as well - it illustrates the point far better, in fact, than do the supplementary blog texts. The thing should be mandatory viewing for anyone looking to purchase a "purebred" dog.

Thank you all for the lovely comments! The Lomonosov Schäfer is indeed majestically big - a little over 22cm long. Doesn't sound like much, but the dog's as long as a soup ladle, and about as heavy..

I didn't dare put them in the horsey herd I have - instead of other species, they would have had to face missing limbs, faces and ears by the dozen. Perhaps when I have at least one custom horse successfully put back together, your two will have a same-species herdmate.

That's sort of what I was thinking of when I picked the colour. Cool
