Thank you for the comments! The rex skull is indeed massive, and the forces the structure was able to generate are quite something too. The tyrannosaurus had 30-centimetre teeth and a bite force approximately equal to the weight of a grown elephant. Not much skeleton Jack there beside him might have done about that, I guess.

Great figures and very diversified. Very Happy
I hope someone can help you with the crocs, I am useless with this kind of creatures. Wink
Hmmm, I don't know if I like to know that the STS official distributor of crocs is called goatherder. Evil or Very Mad Laughing Very Happy

Thank you, Roger! A good number of crocs do seem to issue forth from Phil's vaults, yes. Perhaps he's keeping the goats all to himself, eh?

Wonderful new additions Lea! I love the T-rex Kaiyodo set. I have the skeleton but not the skull. I think I have to get it now.

The penguin skeleton is awesome.

Well here's a late and relatively useless reply (sorry, Andreas - I only noticed your question now!): I'm afraid I've no info on their make. The yellow one is unmarked, but the greenish does have 'S.H. CK MADE IN CHINA 3' stamped on its belly. Both came from the wonderful Nando in Indonesia, if that's any help.


Now. I received a massive, heavy package in the mail today. (Alright, the weight was mainly sculpting epoxy, but still. The rest of the contents require some gravitas.) In that package were some of the best figurines I've ever received, and one in particular I've been doing mental handstands and quite audible whoops and hurrahs about for some months now. No, I won't show it yet. Group pictures first:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Colorata whale shark, manta ray, cats galore and wee AAA shepherd are courtesy of Philipp (PeGe) - thank you! Shown are also a Papo running rex and Kaiyodo Aquatales - Enoshima Aquarium Bathynomus doederleini, which is now my favourite Kaiyodo by far. (Come on, it's a gigantic isopod doing an aquatic cartwheel on a bottle cap. And it's giving its viewers the evil eye while at it!)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
CollectA Clydesdale stallion & Papo caribou. The former turned out to be utterly huge! Perhaps it's only right, given his breed, but really, he's nearly two CollectA Hafling horses tall! His right hind leg and amusingly narrow head (the muzzle on my copy is, puzzlingly, broader than its brow..) make him a fixer-upper, but he was headed for repainting anyways and should make a handsome old gelding one day. The caribou isn't too shabby either - I'm pleasantly surprised by how accurate the details on it are. Some of its proportions are a bit off, but that's all fixable - the figure will likely become a Finnish forest reindeer custom. Certainly it is getting some new paint on.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
And here's the real gem, right there in the middle! The reclining Neapolitan mastiff is an original sculpture our Deseo was kind enough to create just for me, from scratch - paint, collar and all! Isn't he grand? I've never been as excited about a model as I am with this one. I'll create a topic just for him for me to rave on about in the Homemade models section once I get some decent photographs taken - but for now, I can offer the below tasters. Accompanying the regal mastiff in the above picture are the new and very dapper Papo Dane, the surprisingly (or at least relatively) unexaggerated Country Artists Best in Show Basset Hound, a keen AAA bowing shepherd, TOPPS Precious Puppies 07 Bull terrier 'Spike' and a tiny China/AMSCAN molosser.

Detail shots, Deseo's neo first, others after:

That was the parcel day of the decade, for me! So many excellent models, (new epoxy to play around with,) new favourite Kaiyodo, and - best of all - that gem of a Neapolitan! I'm humbled to be able to own such an excellent - and literally unique! - sculpture, and will create a dedicated thread later for more views of him. I want to thank Deseo for creating him, and for most of the other figurines as well, actually - they came from her in a trade. Thank you also PeGe for the feline frenzy, surprise shepherd and superb sharks. If you, reader, got this far with my blathering, I thank you - I hope you too were able to feel some of my enthusiasm for these marvellous newcomers!

Fantastic newcomers! The mastiff is indeed really good, those eyes, so dreamy and comfy Very Happy
And those cats must be very brave, riding on such a big and dangerous T-Rex!  Laughing 
Feel some of your enthusiasm? I felt it a lot!

Beautiful new additions! cheers cheers The mastiff is absolutely amazing, big congratulations!

Do you have any information on the Country Artists brand? I found a few and I'm trying to get rid of them. sunny

Your enthusiasm is evident in your comments and it is always interesting to read your posts. Anytime you do it I feel like reading a magazine expertized in animal toy figures. cheers
Congratulations for all your additions and really great work from Emilia. Looking forward to see your thread dedicated to it. Very Happy

Wow these are fabulous additions Lea!! I love Emilia's custom, beautiful.
That basset hound is gorgeous, I've been quite impressed by some of the Country Artist best in Show.

Fantastic new acquisitions Lea! Wow!

The custom Neapolitan Mastiff is really wonderful. And I also think that the Bassett Hounds is particular marvelous.

What great pictures to share! Thank you so much.

I like very much your photos, especially the cat caretaker T-rex  sunny 

I wonder though, the CollectA Clyde is a stallion I think - unless calling him a girl is part of a joke I didn't get  Razz 
But yes, the strange narrow face was also something that bothered me a lot with that model.
Now I found another owner for him, who can love him more than I did  Very Happy 

Will be interesting what you will make him into!

Thank you for the many comments, everyone! I'm gladdened so many found this interesting enough to view through. I'm very fond of the Papo rex, too, Nando - and likewise, Scott & Harriet, I find the Country Artists Basset a very nice piece. In fact, I think I shall have to try and hunt down some more from that series if I can. As for Deseo's glorious Neapolitan, I shall have the thread up soon on him. (I'll link it here as well, once I have.)

I only know they're a UK brand producing home decor, typically British countryside themed stuff, in mass produced industrial resin. Of he dogs they have several lines, the Best in Show one being in my opinion the best-sculpted. I might be interested in seeing what you've got that you're looking to get rid of - I think I'll shoot you a message.

Well, that is certainly a very generous description. Perhaps more so than deserved; it is, after all, mostly just me blathering on, isn't it - there's usually woefully little of actual information mixed in. Laughing Thank you kindly, nonetheless, for the compliment! I'm very happy to hear you don't mind reading on.

Ah yes, that was my mistake entirely - I confused him with another heavy I have on my desk, a Shire mare. The Clyde is indeed a stallion, and shall likely remain that way with me. He has had a leg cut off and has his head currently sawn in half for broadening, though - perhaps he would have preferred to have lost only is gonads as per my initial introduction. He'll probably become a sunburnt black sabino or even a fleabitten grey one - he hasn't told me yet. (In fact all he's said so far has been "THE HELL YOU DOING I NEED THAT LEG! NOO! MAH FAAAACE!")

(Don't worry Carola, your poor Hanoverian and Lipizzan were spared the sight. They're hanging out with the snakes and skulls with their backs turned.)

If you don't already have it, I thoroughly recommend the Dalmatian, it's beautiful. I have photos if you'd like to be convinced Wink

Got them - thank you! He is a lovely sculpt indeed, if not my breed exactly. I especially like the expression he's got on his face.
