Dear fellow collectors,
I have asked the people of this brand (the same running MiniZoo store) about the crocodile they were producing and about further releases. They told me that they are not sure about continuing producing models because the high cost of production. I think this is a real pity, sice their models are absolutely beautiul (I'm in love with the perentie). But, I guess we will have to resignate.
Regarding this, I'm missing the red kangaroo, but is not available in any store, not even in MiniZoo... do you know where can I get it?
Thanks

I suspected seriously it was happening.. Unfortunately their most ambitious project, the mighty saltwater crocodile, saw the final of its development coinciding with the pandemy. So, it was surely impossible to get financing. It is a pity, the brand is absolutely spectacular and that crocodile was the most antecipated figure for me. If Southlands can't find a path, I'd love to see these moulds being sold to another brand and Jason finding a way to put his wonderful sculpts being mass produced. I think Science and Nature could start a premium series or even more famous companies. Southlands models have enough quality to be included in any range.
I must think about their horses, these are the only figures I miss and they are very beautiful and sculpted by our friend Anna-Dobrowolska.

Oh no that's so sad to hear! I've only just found out about them and I really really love their dingo, they had so many unusual species! Sad

Very sad news, Jason provided us a wonderful series and there are so much species which could join it. I really wish our friend will find a solution. I wish the collector world will measure Jason’s work and will support any possibilities. It is so hard to watch a great new brand saying good bye, a brand that really bring something new on our shelves. Inhope it isn’t the end

Did Anna make them ??? I thought Jason did Shocked

Anyway, they are absolutely wonderful, unique, super-great models, and I am so sad if Jason has given up this great brand Sad
I think it has also had a good influence on other brands, - we have seen several wombats, Tasmanian devels etc since Southland arrived on the stage .
Schleich even made a Quokka !!!
Thankyou so far to Jason flower flower flower

But Roger is full of creative ideas as always, - yes, perhaps some brand will but Janson's models in the future ??? bounce bounce bounce Very Happy

I have been thinking about this since I made my Southlands order earlier this year. I bought them all except for the horses (I don't collect horses), the extinct animals, and the red kangaroo. Unfortunately those which have sold out have since been removed from the Minizoo website entirely. I'm hoping more runs are produced, as well as the crocodile, once things clear up.

I agree with you. I notice that the Australian themed animalsfigures are commoner since Southlands started. We have also a 2020 boom under that subject but for different reasons.
About the sculptor of the horses, in the presentation thread Jason starts talking about a collaboration with Anna and later writes:
"Of course we were very happy to entrust the responsibility to Anna's expert hands "."
I think the word "hands" is not meaning she gave her feedback using sign language. Wink flower
You also can see it better than me but the foal is completely Anna's style, isn't it?

Oh this is horrible. I will be ordering the rest of the figures I want hopefully tomorrow, I was saving that order for a rainy day but I suppose there is no time to lose. I hope that the brand will get itself back onto it’s feet in some way. I will need to work to track down the red kangaroo, which is sold out on all sites that ship to the US. Sad

I'm glad that, at least, since I wrote this, many people here and other friends of mine have hurried to buy the figures they were missing.

@jarda, thanks for the links, I will order my red kangaroo, even when I wasn't completely sure to include it or not in my coll. Do you recommend it?

100%! For sure! This figure is simply perfect, the real one is much better than on the pics.

BTW: One more reason to be obligatory for me: I am long time Bohemians soccer team fan, they have kangaroo as team symbol (https://www.bohemians.cz)... Razz

I'll need to get the Brumbies soon, and the grey kangaroo and my collection of Southlands will be complete.

It's so very sad that we lost a brand, and such a good one too!

That is a very sad new. Southlands was one of the best of all brands. But it born new in a very competitive world already full of excellent brands. It was somewhat predictable that some day this would happen - and the current pandemic and consequent economic impact in the world has been enough for this brand to stop. Really sad.

Since I readed this I go quickly to buy online the remaining Southlands figures that I want for my collection. I've bought at spielzeug-guenstig.de and it was an error. If I had bought at modellpferdeversand.de I would have saved a small fortune!!! I acted quickly in the tought that these figures will stop to be available from just now...

The problem is that I ordered yesterday my red kangaroo, but the shop that sold it to me refuse the purchase because they are not shipping abroad at the moment.
Now, spielfigurenportal doesn't have it anymore (someone just bouth the lasts yesterday or today) and spielzeug is charging 17€ on shipping costs... so the model will cost 27€...
I don't know what to do, I have been buying a lot lately

Southlands replicas has made some really unique prehistoric models . My favorite being the Diprotodon, but I also like the marsupial lion and thylacine. It would be shame if they went out of business. Their diprotodon is one of my most unique models in the hobby and will likely not be recreated by any other companies any time soon.

That's really sad for them and for us. I like my Southlands models. They are on a very high level and I have to congratulate them for making such a great work.
Then, I have to get the Dingo and the Wombat bounce
