Archaeopteryx siemensii and Protoceratops andrewsi [Unknown] full body wall mounts.



Hey @stargatedalek this reply is way way late, but I have this pair as well. Mine are marked 'SilverCorn', do yours have any markings on the back? I'm trying to rack my brains to remember how I got hold of them, but my memory is terrible! I don't remember buying them so I suspect they were given away with something else I bought. Cereal, maybe?
I am fairly certain I purchased them at a dollar store, and they came with a cheap plastic dinosaur skeleton to assemble (long since lost) that was made of thin cut-out plastic, but otherwise similar to the nicer wooden ones that are so common.

I just noticed if you click on the section 'Reviews and Walkarounds' or, on right bar, 'Read Recent Reviews and Walkarounds', all of these new Yowies reviews are not showing up? Did something not carry over when the child board was made?

Well spotted. Yes, I need to add the new child boards to the list...will do it now.

Any thoughts on my suggestions to rejig the forum?

Would general discussions for a certain company be intermixed with walkarounds? Personally I like walkarounds and reviews distinct (easier to search among them)

Yeah, but we only really have one general discussion topic per brand, so I was thinking of pinning (stickying) them to the top of each board. Other more general discussion in the Lines section can be moved to the 'Animal toys (general)' section, while the "New for..." threads could, but don't necessarily need to, be in a separate section.

I decided to keep the reviews and walk-arounds separate.

Walk-around of the Incredible Creatures white-lipped snail (Cepaea hortensis) by Safari Ltd. The sculpt is very good. The colours are a bit more vivid than in the real animal. By my estimation, the model is about three times larger than life size. The figure was retired in 2014, which is a shame, since good snail figures are a bit thin on the ground.

Animal toys (general) / 2019 hopes and dreams

We haven't had such a thread for a few years, but now is a good time of the year for it. What new releases would you like to see for 2019!? Any specific species, or animals in specific poses, and which companies?

You never know who might be watching this thread...  :))

I'm interested to know how members discovered the ATF. I've set up a poll with options, but feel free to elaborate!

...odd figures by unknown brands are among my favorites. I'll have to fill up this child board some more!

Please do! And you never know, some readers might just be able to identify one or two.
