Wow, the Eric's Studio salamander is awesome! 8) I guess a stand like this cube is mandatory if you get one.

Sbell, thanks for posting the photo of the Kaiyodo ChocoEgg giant salamander.  Your collection is truly archival.  I hope the newer Kyoto aquarium figure will eventually show up at a lower price for those of us of the Scottish persuasion.

What's my dad got to do with it? ;)

But yeah, there are limits to how far I can push my wife. Apparently we also need to feed the kids...
By "Scottish persuasion" he is saying that those of us who are thrifty will be able to get this model soon; the Scots have a reputation for their penny pinching ways ;) At least, that's what I think it means....

Although, I'm of Scottish descent myself (both grandparents), and I don't consider myself particularly thrifty :-[


Oh, I knew, that, I just figured I would play dumb about it  ;D Although my dad is of Scottish descent.

And I really like the Eric's Studio salamanders, but I have to limit myself somewhere, and the cost of his figures often makes that decision for me. Besides, I like the Kaiyodo ones more (maybe because they're already painted?!).

Finally I got the beautiful Safari Tennessee Aquarium Fire Salamander :D (thanks to Blackdanter!).
It was a very hot day, so I took him with me to my favourite lake .......

Nice photos, postsaurischian. I would say that the pictures of the fire salamander take me back to the Carboniferous, but that would be giving away my age.

I'm amazed by Eric Thorsen's salamander - the model is so unique and beautiful.  :D
And congratulations on Safari's salamander; your pictures have brought it to life!

Anderson's crocodile newt, Echinotriton andersoni (Kaiyodo)

The CapsuleQ Museum line issued Part 2, # 14a. Sauroid already posted a photo of this species by Furuta in Reply #16 of this topic.  We can compare how the quality has improved for this new figure.  The red warts along the sides are a warning that the ends of the ribs stick out.  Literally hard to swallow.  ;)

Looks great! :) I have the Furuta one which shows a lot less detail.

Not exactly a Salamander, but related ;). I don't know where else to put it.

Don't worry, in English "salamander" is more widely used than in German and may also mean Caudata as a whole (in German that would be "Schwanzlurch"). :)

Some Recent Salamanders from Safari Ltd.


Salamanders (Safari Ltd.)


Glow-in-the-dark salamander


Glow-in-the-dark salamander with Yonahlossee Salamander, Plethodon yonahalossee (Safari Ltd. - Tennessee Aquarium Collection)
Looks like the same mold was used. For more photos see: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=304.msg2831#msg2831

Safari included a salamander in the River Toob that is like a miniaturized version of the Yonahlossee Salamander, red in color.
The River Toob salamander is not identified.


Salamander from River Toob

The description of the Reptiles Toob figures on the Safari Ltd.com website mentions salamanders:
http://safariltd.com/p/reptiles-toobs-figurines-695704.
The 2014 catalog does not identify the figures. The belly of the salamander is not marked with an ID.
It reminds me of a gila monster, with scaly skin texture, and 5 fingers on each hand instead of 4.


Salamander from Reptiles Toob

Tapir and Friends Animal Store calls it a red-spotted newt: http://store.tapirback.com/red-spotted-newt-plastic-f3467/.


Salamander from Reptiles Toob with red-spotted newt, red eft phase, Notophthalmus viridescens (Skilcraft)

The best we can say for identification is that both Toob salamanders are generic.  At least we can rejoice that the olm was marked.


Olm, Proteus anguinus from Cave Dwellers Toob
