I couldn't see this figure here so thought I'd post her!  Smile 

This figure is known as the Tamba Sauropod and is produced by Favorite exclusively for the Museum of Nature and Human Activities in Hyōgo, Japan. It's therefore available only from that location. This animal is unique to Japan and is a type of Cretaceous Titanosaur as yet undescribed or formally named hence it's simply known as the Tamba Sauropod or Tamba Dragon.

The figure was sculpted by Hirokazu Tokugawa and represents an animal that was between 12 - 15 metres in length in life.

GORGEOUS model again  cheers 
You can almost see him walking, slowly and majesticly  Shocked 

How big is the model, please ?
(Sorry to keep asking this  Embarassed Andreas came with a good idea , - to put a LEGO-block next to the model.
At least in the West, everybody knows the size of a LEGO-block)

She's around 29cms in length.  Wink

No worries, the Lego block is a good idea. Alas, I do not own any Lego. I'll try and find something to add to the images for size comparison in future.   Smile

Since it was a Japanese figure, I'd recommend contacting Brett here. He's the go-to guy for Japanese and even sometimes Chinese figures.

I already know Brett. I ordered a Concavenator and it should be arriving whenever the Japanese post office opens. But are there any other tambatitanis toys out there? I’m a big fan of Japanese dinosaurs. I should be able to find them all because not that many were found in Japan and even fewer were made as toys.

Kaiyodo also made a Tambatitanis. https://dinotoycollector.com/Browse/Browse.php?Art=Tambatitanis

That Kaiyodo tamba is one of my favorite of the company's dinos and sits under glass on my desk...

It has a really elegant sculpt.

As I just clicked on the photo link above, that image doesn't do it justice.

You’re right Brett. A figure can’t be judged just by a picture. They always look better in real life.
