Yes :)

It's pretty odd that they released a bunch of species that they already have.

To be fair, that strategy has worked for them for a few years ;)

I'm pretty sure the figure that is called a 'Schleich Moon (Sun?) bear' in the list is actually a Sloth bear.

Also, if I can make suggestions at this point in the poll's creation, I think the CollectA Saiga and Bongo would both be worthy competitors. If not, then go ahead and start the poll.

anyone know what species of Wallaby this is..

It looks like a Bennett's Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) to me.






Does anybody know the exact species this reindeer from Papo is? I can't for the life of me find out.

To my knowledge, there is only one species of reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), unless you meant the subspecies, in which case I don't know.

Hello and welcome!

Are you sure itís retired? I still see it on their official website.

At the time of the original post, it was retired. Safari Ltd has a habit of re-releasing figures after they retire them, and this is one of them.

My opinion on the only two models of this lineup I am interested in:

Golden Lion Tamarin: It looks a little slim or under-haired around the belly, but I might get it regardless.

Ruffed Lemur: Probably my favorite model of the lineup, despite them messing up a bit on the promo image. I'm especially glad they haven't made the usual Ring-tailed Lemur model.

I believe the humphead wrasse has been made by the Japanese manufacturers a couple times, at least by Kaiyodo (Aqualand resin model) and I believe Kitan Club - Nature Techni Colour. But this might be a first for outside of Japan.

I believe there is also a Colorata Humphead Wrasse (the larger, green-blue fish in the image below).

I think I registered just after you stopped posting, but I've seen your footprints here before.

Welcome back.

Oh YAY, more figures of every single possible form of horse that make up half the lineup.

In all seriousness, I don't get the appeal of horse figures, even to those who already ride horses, considering they probably already have a specific horse "assigned" to them for riding lessons or own a horse themselves.

The only one of these that I think looks better than the previous version is the koala.

The rest of them are easy passes for me.

Well, looks like the lineup has been concluded. None of these figures look awful, but, with the exception of the Civet and the Pere David's Deer, all of them are easy passes for me.

Some good and bad news from the STS.
Good news, confirmed number of CollectA figures for next reveal, including extant animals.
Bad news, there will only be 3 models.

All I can really hope for next reveal is that the extant figures don't contain any horses and contain actually interesting (or even somewhat interesting) species of animal.

Update: It is confirmed that the above statement applies to all of the next reveal.

Finally, a major company has released a civet and a pretty good one at that. This figure is a definite must-buy for me.

Apart from that, we just have a baby version of an animal that was released this year and more horses.

That pose alone makes me like this figure.

I got this figure fairly recently and I have to say that this is probably one of the best crocodilians in my collection.

One of my favorite bird figures from Collecta. My only issue is that it is a bit large but this (personal) issue tends to frequent Collecta models of smaller animals.

Hello. I just came to say that mustelids are one of my favorite groups of mammals and that these are all good models.

Welcome here :)

Thanks. Since I already had an account on the DinoToyForum(My username on the DinoToyForum is Ravonium), and the fact that I also collect extant animal models, I figured out that I should join this forum.
