Those are the various Safari ltd mudpuppies. The green and brown are discontinued.

First an emperor scorpion by Chap Mei. I had seen CM figures on the Dino Toy Blog and did some snooping to see if they made insects, and found this scorpion on eBay! If you can get past the color, the sculpt is very nice, easily comparable to the Safari LTD Smithsonian figure!

I was tempted to get the set when I saw it, but it seems to have disappeared already from stores. Don't let the colour fool you, it came with one in more realistic colours and the implication seemed to be this one was glowing under fluorescent light. It was some sort of "X-Files-ey" set.

Positive for froggie!

Helped me find some things I'd been eyeing for some while.

Just my two cents... I didn't like it even as much as the 2005 one simply because the fauna biodiversity of the island was pretty minimal. They were more focused on playing to every Vietnam War trope.
I think that might be in part why I liked this new one better, the 2005 one had so much wasted potential with the sheer bulk of world building that we never actually got to see.

Can this (and others in the set) come off the bases? Personally I like bases but I know there have been grumblings from some people that recent based Kaiyodo figures like this are essentially permanently attached to the base.
I don't think the frilled lizard can be removed but the others all seem as though they can.

Working now thanks!

Just to confirm, you're absolutely not interested in selling any of these? Including duplicates and more common items?

I must admit, while it's sad to see this line go, I'm more excited for what's coming!

Playmobil, custom painted on the right.

Awww...I thought the crabs would be first  O:-)
The crabs might take a while longer because I'm not making them entirely from scratch, and I'm still waiting on some parts to be printed (and for a specimen of Alaskan King Crab to reference for texture, I'm considering swapping it for our native Snow Crab [Neolithodes grimaldii]). Once I have the parts they should be presentable quickly, but printer repairs sadly are not.

Succes, sound very interesting!! some insect nimph, larvae or pupae would also be great ;-)
You will not be disappointed ;)

Sorry for no recent updates, I've been having difficulties getting more materials, but most of the fish are nearing a point where I'd be comfortable showing them off.

I don't mind the magnets when they're unobtrusive (IE the newts set), but I can't picture a magnet possibly being unobtrusive on a fish.

I know exactly to what you're referring, I have some turtles by the same manufacturer. I haven't seen them in some years sadly. The octopus mold was quite nice.

I recognize most of these bootlegs. I think it's safe to say they're all bootlegs, but probably not scams as far as thee buyer is concerned.

I don't think they even come with the cages, they're just part of the background.

From what very little of pet owls I've seen they don't behave at all like other birds of prey do in zoos, and are generally not kept in cages but instead left to wander through the home like a macaw or even a cat would be. Owls generally wander a lot less than other birds of prey, especially smaller ones like barn owls (which are seemingly the most common as pets, probably because they're more sociable than most).

Corvids do very well in captivity, arguably better than parrots, so more docile and/or less wandering birds of prey like owls could potentially fair quite well too. At least in terms of adapting to captivity in general, I doubt they'd make for particularly affectionate house pets like highly social birds do.

Are captive owls unusual? I met someone once who had a saw-whet.

Might be worth noting that the other New Ray cicada seems to be painted based very loosely on Magicicada, although I don't think any cicadas look like that one does, even when soft.

More photos of the Mega Sofubi Caterpillar, Penguin, Woodlouse, and Giant Salamander.

The penguin in particular I can't wait for, a 1:1 penguin; how could I not be!

If anyone is interested in these, I'm going to be making a large order with most of the Mega Sofubi and a few Monster Hunter items in June so it may save some money to combine shipping to North America.
