How about a thylacine?  It's crazy that I can't seem to find one.

Look at the website of my friend Joan, he sculpted beautiful Thylacine female. This figure is limited edition resin, it seems it's still available http://bestiari.weebly.com/limited-editions.html You need to ask the artist ;)
I have it and highly recommend :D here photo from my collection



Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, I like it very much  ^-^! I hope that great brand do a fifure as this  ^-^.

Sean Cooper (of Paleocraft) also made a Thylacine


They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Some cool figures there.  As of right now, I'm not looking to drop a lot of cash on exclusive and/or Japanese stuff, so I may just wait a couple years and see if someone like Mojo Fun ends up doing one. :)

Aside from the Kaiyodo, has anyone ever made a good quality toy/model of a leatherback turtle? I know there was a Chap Mei one on eBay a while back, but I missed that one :-[

I think the Safari Ltd. Leatherback Sea Turtle is discontinued, but here is a link to a seller that still offers one:

Might be worth an email.

Colorata has a really good one as part of their Sea Turtles set. There used to be two, each with 4 adult (on a shared diorama base) and 4 baby of a species, but now the box has all 8 adults on separate stands and no babies. It is definitely on ebay, I've seen it there.

Another turtle question- has anyone made a Cantor's giant soft-shelled turtle? It's a pretty unusual one :)

I have never come across a toy figure of Cantor's giant softshell, Pelochelys cantorii, also known as the Asian giant softshell turtle.

Has any toy company ever made a palm cockatoo figure? I really like these birds and since one plays a big role in a story I'm writing, I'd like to have a figure of some sort.

Well, I only know about figures of Yellow Crested Cockatoo and a Black cockatoo, both produced by company Science and Nature (Animals of Australia) but I really wish I could find Palm cockatoo as well. Maybe it's a good idea for customisation? I think it wouldn't be so hard to do remake of another figure, maybe you could try?   :)

Sadly the link doesn't seem to work for me but I did some googling and did see the toys you mentioned. And yeah, the black cockatoo is probably the closest thing to a palm cockatoo I'll get, haha. Thanks for helping me out!

But yeah, I could give customizing a try.

The link should work now. The forum didn't automatically recognise the format so I hard coded it :)

I can't find a good, complete listing, but is there a Yowies figure of a Palm Cockatoo? They seem to have covered much of Australia's fauna so it seems at the least to be very possible.

I know non- japanese brands but the only colugo that i know is by Colorata (together with a orang utan figure)

Water buffalo- Britains
Great Hornbill- Yowies UK
Caracara- Playvisions
Sunbear- Playvisions

thats all what i know at the moment  :)

thanks Andreas. it would be really great to see those animals made by the big brand names in scale with other figures.
