Hello everyone!
I sort of did something like this last year and thought it may be fun to continue. I enjoy looking back at the end of the year and seriously considering what new models I was able to acquire. It helps me revisit the figures themselves and why I liked them etc. I thought it may be fun to share here about 2022 new acquisitions or new announcements... however you wish to interpret it. Pleaae feel free to share!

Here are mine. My models are still in storage so I can't take new photos but alas... Here are some screenshots from my topic anyway.

Starting off 2022 I had a Breyer grail show up. Loco Louie wasn't quite as exciting as my late 2021 Hotel California, Ugly, Slingblade, or Neon Nights but... he did complete the single release collection at last. Jumpstart truly completed it shortly after (this model was released in a play set).

I also got to complete my PV salamanders set with the long toed salamander addition.

The rare AAA borzoi and even a pale version of my mysterious dorado!

A trade with Christophe netted me lots of wonders all the way from France. Including an oarfish, some of my favorite salamander species, and the Bullyland wolverine (to name but a few! Also, I have wished for the wolverine since I learned about it and joined here in 2011).

Then I found a breyer texas longhorn bull in an antique store, and Safari's pacmam frog from ebay.

And the year isn't quite up yet! I would love to see your "thankful for" models so we can enjoy the past year of this fantastic hobby.

What a lovely idea! I think the first photo would be my favourite of your additions this year - not just cos they're an interesting kind of animal and I like the sculpt style, but for completing the set of something you've been collecting such a long time.

I'll have a think about mine, but one of them is definitely going to be something which hasn't even been posted to the forum yet, so I won't reply with my own selections til later on!

Thank you George! I look forward to your post. And I think I agree with you, my bulls for this year were particularly exciting as they completed a set I never thought possiblem The rarest models often go for sky high bidding prices outside my wallet's wildest dreams. But mine were each about 50$ buy-it-now sales, totalling 200$ by the end of acquiring all 4 of the Bovines of the Apocalypse (a bad joke admittedly...)

**I updated the photos for those, including the 2 bulls named as well as the group photo that included Jumpshot**

I don't think I have much to tell, another atypical year for me and if I have something to show, it is thanks to the good STS friends.
Though, I really enjoyed seeing your collection film of the year. From the unnavoidable ITOI Paraceratherium to the almost collectively forgotten Bullyland wolverine. cheers

Thank you Roger and Lilias!

I would encourage anyone to upload their own "best of 2022" if they have time! Otherwise this topic seems a little boastful and one sided. Wink (Not my intention at all). I would love to see other special additions!

Great topic idea, and beautiful selection of additions. Congratulations on a great year. As a Playmobil animal collector this has just been a massive year, with double the number of new animals and variants this year as in any other year ever. So that has taken all my possible focus with very little room left around the edges for other additions. I love seeing what others have been getting though, so thanks so much for sharing all these wonderful animals with us.

Wow Paige, so many beautiful figures in 2022! There are so many great ones, but the oarfish has to be my favorite I love you

I am so thankful this year with my collection. I received many models I absolutely loved, it was very hard not to pick everything.

But I do have so highlights that I am so grateful to have, here they are cheers

2022 Thankful For... 2022_h12

1.) Starting off with Safari's beautiful Virginia opossum! I wanted this figure for a long time, and I was so happy to finally find one. I just love the babies clinging on to the mother's back. Safari has so many gems making them my favorite brand easily.

2.) A repaint my friend did for me of Southlands Replicas brumby stallion. He is painted to look like Spirit from one of my favorite childhood movies. I just love the paintwork on him, she did an excellent job  I love you

3.) I just adore Anna's figures... But I wasn't on STS when she was making her wild life figures, so I wasn't able to get any. I was so happy to get the beautiful bongo from a forum member. I got her takin too and gifted it to my friend. I love this figure so much I feel honored to own it!

4.) The poor lesser kudu I wanted for a few years but he was always out of stock on Safari's website when I was making an order. I didn't realize when he retired and I couldn't find him anywhere.. AnimalKingdoms in New Zealand was so kind to ship me one that they still had in stock! A beautiful antelope, one of Safari's best in my opinion.

5.) I love Signatus Studios models, this vulture was a new species for me and I just love the details on it!

6.) The waterbuck was another beautiful model by Signatus Studios.. I love how she was made to go with CollectA's male. I might have to get the baby now  Laughing

7.) Thanks to Paige I was able to find the last Southlands Replicas figure I needed! The beautiful Thylacine is probably my favorite of the series, I love it so much  I love you

8.) Thanks to one of Loon's sales I was able to get another Nature Technicolor figure. I only have a few figures from this brand, but I am so impressed by it. I believe it is one of the most realistic/detailed figures I own. Such a beautiful cephalopod!

2022 Thankful For... 2022_h13

9.) From Whitelightningwolf, a gorgeous leafy seadragon!! Seadragons are some of my absolute favorite fish, I have such fond memories of seeing them at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Another fantastic nature technicolor figure that just nails the detail of the real thing.

10.) Probably tied as my favorite addition in my collection this year, Safari's gorgeous and tiny queen triggerfish. This was a very sentimental model that I had lost when I was little, and I've been looking for another for years. Finding the whole set was a dream come true and I was so happy to have the triggerfish back in my collection along with the other figures in new condition.  I love you

11.) Marine iguanas are one of my favorite reptiles, they have always fascinated me. I loved the Play Visions model, but I wasn't satisfied with the paintwork. My friend recently repainted one for me and I just love it!! She did an amazing job and I think the paintwork really shows off the sculpt.

12-14.) 3 salamanders from Safari's amazing Tennessee Aquarium set.. I just adore these figures and I was so happy to find 3 more. I just need to find the elusive common mudpuppy to complete the set.

15.) I'm a huge fan of Safari's Incredible Creatures line, their reptiles especially. I was so happy to find the Parson's chameleon! This model is just so unique and I love it so much. Its large size and beautiful colors make it a joy to look at.

2022 Thankful For... 2022_h15

16.) I'm really into dinosaurs, especially those from Jurassic Park. The 3rd movie was always my favorite when I was little and spinosaurus is my favorite dinosaur. I was so happy when Nanmu Studios announced they were making a 2.0 version. Its so stunningly realistic and a great representation of the movie version!

17.) Another figure from Nanmu, the buck from the Lost World. The detail on this guy is incredible and he was probably the most fun to photograph this year in the woods.

18.) And wrapping it up with my #1 figure of the year (tied with the triggerfish) the Kaiyodo blue whale!  cheers I wanted this figure for years and years. But I never had the money for it when I was younger and I couldn't justify the price when I was older. I finally decided I would get it this Spring, thanks to help from Brett. My grandparents made it a graduation gift from college and I was so grateful and excited to have this huge whale in my collection. Its only right that the biggest figure I own is the blue whale  Laughing


It was an amazing year and I am ever so grateful and appreciative of the dedicated members on this forum that are always eager to help out. I have found many figures I was searching for and I have discovered numerous new brands. I can't wait to see what this year brings!!

Wonderful year Jolie, I really love stories like the Safari queen triggerfish. I am just like you, I love to recover some things which got lost in the past. Getting Anna's models is also a rare opportunity. I was just a few minutes ago enjoying my bongo and takin which I treasure for such a long time.
When we get a whale as a gift, should we call it a big gift or a large gift? I have no idea why people say English is easy to learn. affraid
