im not sure if the brown one is the Rana japonica. getting these Yujin frogs is more expensive than getting them off ebay because i usually have to get 5-6 (or even more) same items/multiples before finally getting the one im after (so one figure for the price of five/more)
Well, I have all fifteen and I had a look at your photos in this thread. Rana japonica was the only one I haven't seen among yours. Good luck finding one, at least it's none of the three secrets so if you find one offered as a single figure it may not be that expensive. :) I bought my Yujin frogs as a complete set in 2010 for $50, not sure anymore but I think this also included international shipping so they were once quite easy to get for a reasonable price.
luckily, i was able to acquire the very last Yujin frog that i needed (Rana japonica) just today.  :)

so while we're waiting for someone to post a scanned Yujin frogs label (i have the labels i just dont have a scanner  :-[), here's the whole group (image i got from google)

Congrats, sauroid, so your collection will be complete shortly! :)
I have all the labels, too. I could scan them but they are somewhere in my labels boxes on the attic, it'll take me a few days but I can do it. I'd suggest for these informations restricted just to this series we may also open up a separate thread for it in the Animal Toy Lines section.

Sauroid, you are lucky to own the entire set of Yujin frogs. Thanks for posting the Google image of the frogs.
We could number each frog pictured, but as long as brontodocus has a label to scan, that is not necessary.

Brontodocus, thank you for volunteering. Could the label be scanned just once for the first 12 frog images?
Don’t know about images of the 3 secret figures.
It’s just my preference for posting under the topic of animal groups. You could also post under the topic of toy lines.

My thought was to keep the focus on the figures here and that we already gathered a lot of information about one specific series of a toy line to qualify for a thread of its own. We could do both, of course. :) The labels, if I remember correctly, are different for every figure since the respective one they come with is shown on a photo.

awesome job stemturtle (and wife). thanks.
That's indeed a great overview, stemturtle, many thanks to you and your wife. ^-^ However, I've been unable to locate my labels of the Yujin frogs even after intensively searching for them on the attic (I did find those of the Kitan Club frogs, though, if there's interest, however, I only have a basic set of seven without the secret). :-[ So maybe someone else who has the Yujin frogs labels could scan at least one of them?

Thank you for searching for the Yujin labels, brontodocus. I believe the current reference as posted on Reply 45 should be sufficient.
If you want to post a scan or scans of the label(s) of the Kitan Club frogs, the more references the better.

Wallace’s Flying Frog


Wallace’s flying frog, Rhacophorus nigropalmatus (Nature’s Wonders HD), SVL 1.5 inches or 4 cm.

This frog resembles the green flying frog, R. reinwardtii, but is larger, lacking the orange toes.
Ironically, the figure of the green flying frog by Colorata is larger than this replica (see Reply #12 for photo). Of course, these frogs glide rather than fly.
This is the fourth frog in a set of 4 by Blip Toys. Brontodocus posted photos earlier in this thread for the blue poison dart frog, hourglass treefrog, and green toad.

The common name of R. nigropalmatus honors Alfred Russel Wallace, who printed an illustration of this frog in his popular book, The Malay Archipelago.
He co-authored the theory of natural selection with Charles Darwin, before the publication of the Origin of Species
I am glad we have a figure to remind us of this great naturalist.
