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

New Members / Brazilian biologist wants advice!
« Last post by DiegoMoura on April 21, 2018, 11:59:36 PM »
Hey!

I'm Diego, I'm 23 yo and I'm a biologist (getting my masters' degree in ecology, so pretty much obssessed with animals) from Brazil! I collect brazilian and african animal figures. It is really hard to find brazilian animals and no big brand sells any of them here in Brazil, which is crazy. Anyway, I've recently posted my collection here (sorted by ecoregions and it looks great, check it out! http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2252.0;topicseen ) and I want to find more brazilian animals! Do you know any figure from animal brand? I've checked most from Papo, Safari, Schleich, but I don't know much about japanese ones.

Thank you!

Special requests: Armadillos, Coatis, Spider and capuchin monkey, tamarins, Rhea, Amazonian River dolphin, Green parrots (not macaws), Giant River otter, peccary.

I didn't realize there was a blue version of the Dynastes. I have the yellow version and it is one of my favorite D. hercules figures!

Good advice, Beetle guy. Welcome, DiegoMoura.
The Takara Tomy set of Amazon animals is available on eBay.

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.

The lineup in the first marine set looks pretty good, especially the Glaucus atlanticus (been waiting for someone to make a figure of that critter for a while), assuming that at least one of the 3 versions doesn't come with any added gimmicks.

The rest of this lineup doesn't particularly interest me, especially the non-figures and urchin shells.

Those marine figures are really pretty. I keep hoping that one day they'll do some prehistoric themed sets.

One of the marine sets seems to have a Calappa lophos crab (which would be the first not by Kaiyodo), otherwise nothing for me.

Thanks for the crab ID, bmathison. The blue dragon nudibranch is probably Glaucus atlanticus. What we really need are sponges. Is the red figure a finger sponge or red coral?
