this is Kaiyodo but I cannot figure out how to merge topics. I have the rights but can't figure it out  LOL. Maybe Adam will see this and do it  ::)

These are nice; I appreciate Kaiyodo is expanding outside of Japan's fauna even if the animals are few and far between. Some of these would be nicer if they didn't have the 'captivity' feel to them.

well time for some positive feedback, thanks to stargatedalek for the ant model (will do a walkaround) and Beetle Guy for filling more gaps in my beetle collection!

They are Kaiyodo. I've no interest in most of these but that alligator and kiwi are beautiful, though I'll wait until the set is close to release so I can be certain of prices, I'd rather risk missing out on getting them than them being particularly pricey and already being locked in and then chickening out last minute and being an inconvenience.

 The Alligator and the Kiwi are MUST-HAVES :D !! (Maybe these are Kaiyodo figures, I don't know)
 To be released in fall 2018.

if they have the figures they are selling, why dont they just use their own pics?

When last I looked, they did--but the only photos were of the figures in the plastic bags. It's not like they couldn't get stock photos from the Colorata site or something.

I have seen their prices and their in many casses (not all!!) pretty high for the listed figurines. Even with the costs of buying services you can buy them way cheaper from Yahoo auctions or so.
I saw they had the Takara/Yujin Shrimps and Crabs collection figures for absolutely ludicrous prices. I paid less than $10 for each of the ones from this set I own, and you can find almost any of them on Ebay (let alone Yahoo Japan) for less than $20 at any time.

I think a lot of us area aware of them--and their crazy pricing. I've never purchased from them, but I have had to insist that they not use my photos of Colorata figures (probably plucked from here or DTF) for their auctions...which indicates how likely people are to get the figure pictured in an auction!

Some more beetles from Beetle Guy!

First, Chalcosoma moellenkampi, Dorcus titanus sakishaminus, and Hexarthrius mandibularis from F-toy
Next, Megasoma elephas and Odontolabis cypri from their small standard and DX sets, respectively
Also, a cool Rosalia lesnei (?) and butterfly, both from unknown manufacturers



Next, my gift as part of the STS Forum's 'Custom Figure Swap'. The person who I was assigned to (Susanne), customized the Bullyland grasshopper into Chromacris icterus!
