Got one from the early Ebay seller listings - here's the checklist from the insert:

Giant Australian Cuttlefish (Emerald)
Axoloti (Emerald)
Leopard Shark (Emerald)
Great Hammerhead (Emerald)
Ocean Sunfish (Diamond)
Giant Wolffish (Emerald)
Bigeye Tuna (Diamond)
Beluga Sturgeon (Diamond)
Yellow-eyed Penguin (Super)
Trout Cod (Super)
Sandfish (Sun)
Golden Coin Turtle (Super)
Short Nosed Sea Snake (Golden)
Cape Seahorse (Sun)
Spotted Handfish (Sun)
Tasmanian Giant Freshwater Crayfish (Emerald)
Saimaa Ringed Seal (Emerald)
Giant River Otter (Emerald)

And the Yowies:

Rumble
Boof
Squish
Crag
Ditty
Nap

Here's a breakdown of the rarity categories:

Super Crystal Collectible
Golden Crystal Collectible
Diamond Crystal Collectible
Emerald Crystal Collectible
Sun Crystal Collectible

Presumably they are in declining order of rarity.

The photos on the slip are VERY small so it's hard to tell the quality of the models, but the sandfish I received is very well done.

Thanks a lot for sharing the information with us! I don't know if there is a single figure of my interest despite the big number of interesting species. Maybe the axolotl, let's see what people show to us during next weeks! bounce bounce

I have the sandfish (a sea cucumber) and the Atlantic wolffish (the small image on the paper says giant wolffish, but the species is marketed as the Atlantic wolffish, A. lupus). The sculpt on the wolffish is nice. I have the bigeye tuna and Cape seahorse en route to me. When I have them all, I will image them.

Because Yowies are small, I'm more likely to go for 'smaller' species, so the non-shark fish, amphibians, reptiles, and arthropod (although I will probably go with a Japanese company for the axolotl).

Darn! I was hoping when it said "wolffish" it meant a trahira. Not that marine wolffishes aren't cool, but I have a soft spot for characins. It's a pretty solid assortment at any rate.

I have to wait the pictures, but the seal, otter and penguin are for my collection really must-haves. But I think, it´s the first yowie set that I need beside the hammerhead completely. Even that I´m not really a fis collector, the yowies are always fine and present rare species :)

I don´t have even the complete series 3 + 4 and now there will be already a fith series...what a hard life^^

Very interesting Fallon. I think I will really want the axolotl eventually. Very Happy
I used the chance and used your pictures to open a page on Toy Animal Wiki dedicated to this particular series. It can be found here! - I hope other TAI editors collecting these figures can complete it. The series 4 is also still missing lot of pictures. I which a long life to USA Yowies, they really show interesting species. Very Happy

Hoping my local stores selling down on series 4 means they will soon restock with the new series. Still need to find a tortoise though.

Nope. I've just been buying them off eBay as I see them. Got a sea snake, sunfish, cuttlefish, wolffish, sturgeon and bigeye tuna over the course of a few days.

It sure beats spending loads of money buying them blindly in store. I used to like the surprise of buying them in store but this past series (series 4) I ended up with about 15 duplicates each of the shark, humpback whale, and peccary. I had an awful time getting rid of them all on eBay!

Roger, I've ended up with most of the series 4 shopping for a partner. It will be next week as I have to work straight through tomorrow morning- Monday night, but I can take some pictures for you.
I hear you, Fallon. I don't know how many I've gone through- several dozen anyhow- trying to get a few. I enjoy hunting and will wait for them to appear in stores, but it takes a lot of the fun out of it when you have to spend way too much trying to get something that seems nonexistent.

That would be great but only if you find time. You can post the pictures on series 4 topic or just message me.  
By the way, last two from series 5 presented by Blaine were just added. Very Happy

The giant Australian cuttlefish is one of the species that I always wanted to be made into figurine. It's one of my favourite species of cuttlefish! My wishes come true, they did one!! And a well done one! Do you know the size of it?
