  Here's one from Kabaya's 'Amazonas' set:


    No.15 - Mata mata


  ... and the two species from Colorata's 'Endangered Species - Reptiles' box:


    Radiated Tortoise & Aldabra Giant Tortoise

Oh, the Kabaya Matamata is lovely! :) Is that from the Amazon figures set made out of resin (the one of which you sent me the Macaw)? Looks like it.

I've been longing for that box!
Wait, don't you have at least eighteen Colorata boxes and not this one (I don't have it either)? :o
You know, as a moderator here it is, well, almost sort of a duty (or at least a very good reason) to eventually grab your Colorata boxes out, finally, and show them to us. ;D

Oh, my. Now that's an arduous task if ever there was one.  ;D

Well, most of my figures are stowed away, too (urgh, 60+ plastic boxes from Ikea and counting). And so only a fraction of my figures is easily accessible for me. :-\ It is one reason (of course not the only one) for me to try to photograph every single figure. Digital photos stored in folders are so much easier to sort and browse through...

Yes, it is.
I still don't know what that set is exactly called, because everything is written in Japanese.
A German eBay seller sold masses of these for 1 EUR each. I discovered him too late to get the complete set ::).
I think you have the baby Tapir as well :).

Playvision Flat-backed Turtle (left) and Hawksbill Turtle (right).

Varanus showed two of the 8 Play Visions Sea Turtles 1998 above: 2) Hawksbill and 5) Flatback.  Here are 5 more, but I do not own the 1) Leatherback.  My figures are not marked with numbers, so I used marks on the Yujn Series 1 figures. 


4. Black sea turtle, Chelonia mydas (= C. agassizii)


3. Green sea turtle, Chelonia mydas


7. Kemp's ridley sea turtle, Lepidochelys kempii


6. Loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta


8. Olive ridley sea turtle, Lepidochelys olivacea

EDIT: TGF Toys has 7 of the 8 sea turtles for sale.  Habitat Earth did not come up in the A-Z index, but did give a hit in the search box for sea turtle.
Item numbers added.

This thread is making me want to collect sea turtles. They are marine reptiles so what possible excuse do I have to resist temptation...

Pretty. I intend to start a turtle and tortoise collection soon too.

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

Thank you for your kind words, Jetoar, tyrantqueen, brontodocus, Himmapaan, and animaltoyforum.  It is wonderful to have the old gang here.  :) I did not paint the turtles. They were purchased already finished.  Kind of pricey now.

Brontodocus, your photos are amazing; professional quality.  $57 is correct for the unfinished snapper.  You would want to contact the seller to learn about international postage:
morganreptilerep @ rtelco.net. You could ask about the price for glass eyes. You would need to dress down the foam bottom, maybe cover it with felt.  Good luck.
Sorry for bringing this up so suddenly, but what do you mean by "dressing down"?

Tyrantqueen, if you fill a mold too full with plaster, let it cure, then dump it out, you could grind down the bottom of the cast to make it smooth.

Dressing down is a term used on the Product Details page to explain that some figures have flashing or a bottom made of foam that can be ground down with a Dremel tool:
