This thread is dedicated to that diverse group of lizards known as Iguanians.

This encompasses the agamids and dragons, the chameleons, the helmeted and basilisk lizards, the collared and leopard lizards, various iguanas, swifts and spiny lizards, anoles, and curly-tails.

I have many to share, but to kick this thread off I'll start with one of my favorites  :):

AAA "Lizard" cast from a real specimen.  It appears to be a Calotes sp. or perhaps  Japalura sp.

Huh, never seen that one before. Interesting. I wonder how many lizards AAA actually made.

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

I think the same. AAA have done a lot of  reptiles and amphibians  ^-^.

These AAA casts are stunning :)!

Here are two Chameleon figures of the same species:
Chamaeleo calyptratus - Veiled Chameleon

-  Colorata "Endangered Species - Reptiles" box (left)
-  Kaiyodo/Takara "ChocoQ Animatales: Pet series 5" No.139 (P66A) (right)

Ah, I thought about creating a more or less identical topic sooner or later, so it's great to see it's already there! :)
It appears to be a Calotes sp. or perhaps  Japalura sp.
I've seen photos of the figure before and Calotes was my first thought about it, too! :)

Some of my Iguanian figures need an update but for now I'd like to show these two:

Basiliscus plumifrons (Cope, 1876); Plumed Basilisk ("Jesus-Christus-Echse") by Bullyland. Length 221 mm, snout-vent length 79 mm, scale approx. 1:3.


Calumma parsonii (Cuvier, 1824); Parson's Chameleon by AAA, cast from an actual specimen. Length approx. 490 mm (snout-vent length approx. 230 mm).

Is that the AAA chameleon that is supposedly badly emaciated? :-[ Lovely looking figure nonetheless :)

Yes, that's the one, but it doesn't look so bad from that angle (The sunken eyeballs are still visible :-\).

Oh, and I have both colour variants of the "Amazing animals!" series:

The left one being the colourful A. c. venustissimus Eibl-Eibesfeldt, 1956 from Espanola (same as the Colorata figure). Length 88 mm, snout-vent length 43 mm, scale approx. 1:6 - 1:15. "Michelle" is approx. 1:12 - 1:13 scale. I need to update my photos of the Bandai Nature Zone and Safari Ltd. IC figures. And I have the Yujin Marine Iguana, too, which I haven't even photographed, yet.


And here's the Play Visions Rhinoceros Iguana, Cyclura cornuta Bonnaterre, 1789. Length 108 mm, scale approx. 1:6 - 1:14. I should make a comparison shot of this with its darker Yujin counterpart. :)


Corytophanes cristatus (Merrem, 1821); Helmeted Iguana. Play Visions. Length 111 mm, scale approx. 1:2 - 1:3.


Phrynosoma cornutum (Harlan, 1825); Texas Horned Lizard. Safari Ltd. Incredible Creatures. Length 149 mm, snout-vent length 103 mm, scale approx. 1:0.6 - 1:1.1.
