Kitan Club - Nature Techni Colour / Fungi (Kitan Club)
« on: May 01, 2014, 06:23:53 PM »
A group of well known species of mushroom/fungi. They're made in a soft, rubbery material, which mimics the feel of a real fungus. I thought that was a nice touch.

I'm not sure if it's okay to post these, but since fungi are closer to animals than they are to plants (and I don't think we'll be seeing a Fungi Toy Forum in future) I'll put them here anyway :)

I do not read Japanese so I don't know if these identifications are accurate. I'm just guessing from appearances, and most of them are no-brainers anyway. If anyone can provide a better one, please do so.

Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria)







European destroying angel (Amanita virosa)







Shiitake mushroom (Lentinula edodes)







Stinkhorn (Phallus luteus)



Pseudocolus schellenbergiae



Truffle (Tuber spp.)



Hypsizygus tessellatus

Animal toys (general) / Toy sightings

I think we have a similar thread like this on the DTF, so why not start one here?

Has anyone ever spotted a figure of an animal in an unusual place, such as a movie or on television?

Here's an example: I was watching one of my favourite TV shows, Horrible Histories, and I saw this in one of the sketches:



I'm not 100% sure but could this be the AAA lobster?



It could be...since it would be more convenient to use a plastic one than going out and buying a real one, just to use in a short clip.

There is also a greengrocer in my town that used the AAA crab and lobster as displays in their windows to advertise their fresh produce. I was always freaked out because I thought they were freeze dried or something.

Bullyland / Albino King Python (Bullyland - Animal World)
« on: December 12, 2013, 11:36:16 AM »
I might have gotten the series line in the title incorrect, so I apologise for that :-[













Seems like this model would fit in nicely with some the of the Kaiyodo snake gashapons :)

Superficially, it looks very similar to the small version, but I think the details on this one are superior.













Comparison with the smaller version:


Shot of the tail, which is nearly as long as the body itself:

One of two adult Iguana sculpts for the Incredible Creatures line. This is the smaller and commoner version. I have the bigger, retired version also, and will be posting that soon, too.

Safari Ltd - Other lines / Tokay Gecko (Safari Ltd.)

Not much to say here, other than it's a great model :) Looks like another life cast.













Comparison with the AAA small brown gecko, which I have also made a walkaround of :)

Classifieds / Favourite stores

We have a thread like this on the DTF, so why not one here? List your favourite sellers.

Here are mine.

Stores:

H&H Winners' Circle http://www.handhwc.com/ Lots of everything, but I like it for the AAA casts.

Veghead http://www.veghead.com/catalog/ A good site with lots of retired and rare models, but they do not ship outside of the USA, which sucks for those of us who live elsewhere.

Thanks for looking :)

Safari Ltd - Other lines / Gila Monster (Safari Ltd)
« on: October 08, 2013, 02:31:28 PM »
Sorry, I don't know which exact line this one comes from. There is writing on the belly, but it's so hard to make out that the only thing I could read was "Safari" and "Gila Monster" :-[ So, mods, if you could put this is in the correct place, I would appreciate that :)

Anyway, I am finally happy to own this guy. I had been searching for a good Gila replica for a long time. I originally thought this model was made by AAA, but in fact, it is a Safari model.















Thanks for looking :)

AAA / Iguana (AAA)
« on: July 20, 2013, 08:45:26 PM »
I am thinking this model might be a sub-adult, since it doesn't look full sized (even though it's a big figure) Or maybe it's a female? Length is over 40 inches.

Because of the large size of the model, I decided to take advantage of the recent good weather here in the UK, and did some outdoor photography.

I won him for £1 on eBay.co.uk. The model is in pretty good condition, apart from a few paint rubs.

















Just for fun, here is a scale comparison  ;D


I also did a walkaround of the baby Iguana figure by AAA, here http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,517.msg4658.html#msg4658
I was going to photograph them together, but forgot to take the baby with me when I went outside ::)

Is this guy a spiny tailed lizard (Uromastyx)?

AAA / Spiny Tailed Skink (AAA)
« on: May 20, 2013, 02:33:55 PM »
Another skink :) The model has a rough feel, much like a pineapple, making me think this was probably another life cast.

Colouration is off of course, but I do like it.

AAA / "Iguana" Baby Iguana? (AAA)
« on: May 20, 2013, 02:24:53 PM »
I believe this is a companion toy to the larger adult Iguana model (which I don't have yet, but will get some day)

AAA / "Jumbo Tortoise" (AAA)
« on: May 07, 2013, 10:12:07 PM »
Big guy, but smaller than the AAA Hawksbill Turtle.
