Thank you all! Yeah, that is a great set, I didn't know it!! It's on my wishlist now haha

The Alouatta is probably A. caraya, which makes my diorama wrong, because A. caraya does not live in the Amazon lol gonna need take new pics.

I'm really new to this, any websites I can look for it regarding japanese brands? I've checked Collecta, Safari, Papo and Schleich, I don't know other ones lol

Thank you again! xx

Here you can buy the whole set: for 14 US dollars, This is not including the gray hercules I think. When these set arent sold by shops anymore, the prices go up very much because the single figurines and whole sets are considerd collectors items.
Buyee is a forwarding service I have used for 7 years, I can recomend them when buying from Japan.

How Buyee works
You will have to make a Buyee account. Their website is in English as well. It is handy if you have a PayPal account.
They will buy your item and charge you a fee. They will do the purchase and let you know when the items arrive at their wearhouse. Then you choose a shipping option and make payment for the domestic shipping (seller to Buyee) and international shipping (Buyee to your house)

Welcome to the forum! Nice pics!

This set was released in 2015 by the Japanese company Tomy Takara A.R.T.S. The blue/gray D. hercules was a secret figurine with the set. It is still for purchase on some Japanese sites like Buyee and Rakuten. This is the Japanese for using google ;-) If you need a link where to purchase let me know. below some pic's found in google.

I quess this is new Ikimon stuff for 2018.
The butterflies do not seem to be 3D. I think it will be resin encassed pictures.

For the animal species Homo sapiens ;-)

Butterfly set with collecting pouches.

Marine life themed sets.

I will be posting more active in two weeks.
Than some deadlines are taken care of. 8)

The Japanese manufacturers' (my collecting source) animal output is at a all time low. ;-( 
Especially Kaiyodo isn't even a ghost from what they made in the years 2014/2015 when it comes to animals.

I have some nice newly found old stuff though!
Be back in a bit!

I miss Brontodocus on the forum. Hope he's allright.

I like the poses of the hanging axolotls...but it makes display harder! I might have picked up at least one if they'd been wild colour...

I agree, I like the 'drifting' poses in axolotis, toad and frogs in the Kitan series.

Again, what a marvelous collection!! Thanks far posting!

Available now (thanks, Brett, for the pic): plankton on chains. They are flat and clear, but I'm still getting them!  (and I suspect stemturtle will as well) :-)

You are correct, sir!

Not going to get this. But, another pic. There really nice but I prefer 3D  8) Wish they would make some more arthropod figurines.

Blaine, while you are at it ...;-)

I think it is a great figurine! Was it only released in the US?
I originally purchased it through "book orders" that Scholastic gives out to schools in Canada. They occasionally also included educational model kits. I think I lost that antennae shortly after getting it a very long time ago (2003 is definitely the right time frame).

I have seen their prices and their in many casses (not all!!) pretty high for the listed figurines. Even with the costs of buying services you can buy them way cheaper from Yahoo auctions or so.

I know why I like the Japanese brands seeing this. From above it looked rather nice.

But such a (relatively) big ant model, yet so little detail and very rough connecting parts. I expected it to be a 2,5 to 3 cm model.

Did you buy the whole set? Love to see some more pic's. Thinking of purchasing them.

A photo of the Colorata Paleozoic Creatures set of 6 was posted on the Dinosaur Toy Forum by Halichoeres:

I bought the set for the orthocone, since I grew up in the Ordovician.  :)

Thanks!! I am tempted to surf to Rakuten!  :))

Very nice!! I had no idea these were this big! Thanks for showing with the 4D-Master log for reference!

I would give the elytra just a slight layer of deep redish brown just enough to still let them be transparant.  But hey that's me  :P :P
