There are twelve contenders now. I could start the poll, but I reckon there are still a few more toys we could add for contention?

This one is in our 2018 banner. Nice photos, and good to see you around again!  :)

Problem: many pics are gone! What can we do?

I know.  :( Photobucket messed us up. Anyone who wants to help fix the "new for" sections is welcome to. If people add images to the thread, I can copy them to the first posts. In any case, it is good to have them as a record.

By the way, do you have a proper name?

Sounds a bit odd calling you "animaltoyforum"...  ;D

People call me "Dr Admin" ;D

I would argue that Toy Fish Factory lacks representation...! :P http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2189.msg18244#msg18244

As always, freshwater fish get completely left out! And you think inverts get forgotten!

Also, what? None of the 5 billion new horses made it!?  :o

There are no freshwater fish, but there are two non-shark fish (next year please send me images of TFF figures with a solid pale/white background, or something easier to manipulate in Photoshop).

Some year I really should put a horse in, because they are well-represented and popular. This year the selection of nice mammals was so big it was hard to narrow some down (was upset to leave off the Safari marmot and Javan rhino and Schleich koala...)

Okay, we'll commit to having a horse in the 2019 banner. :)

That's a really nice idea. Who organises it, STS? Nice model, too!

Was the Kaiyodo Bird Garden set 2016 or 2017? That's another 4 species (albeit 3 sculpts).

I can't find them listed in either the 2016 or 2017 "New for" sections. A forum search didn't yield any results either. Have they been discussed on the forum anywhere?
http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t18668-parrots-bird-garden-capsule-q-museum

It was a 2017 set. Even though the caiques are separate subspecies I wouldn't include both of them, but I would include both the blue and gold and rainbow macaws.

*edit*
The Kitan club Japanese common toad and Safari reef squid warrant inclusion.

okay! :)

Updated! I'm liking the mixture so far. I've also thrown the Papo Walrus into the ring.

One more contender and we'll have a top ten - we won't need a poll then.  :P ;)

Nah, I reckon we can get up to 20 or so contenders before I set up the poll.

Thanks for the suggestions, I've added them to a list in the first post. More suggestions would be welcome.  O:-)

Thanks, I'm not sure what is the official name is then. I'll update the thread title.

Several times I have been misled by erroneous IDs from sellers on eBay. The langur (Old World monkey) is only distantly related to the sifaka (a lemur). I would write the official title as Verreaux's sifaka and delete the mention of a langur.

Thanks for the advice, done!  8)

Thanks! I updated the title and OP.
