Since I don't have a ton of money I'm starting my toy animal collection slow, and focusing on cetaceans. The vaquita was a must-have for me and I'm really happy with it!

Yes, it is a must for me too, since I can't find any other porpoise from major brands. I ordered it and I hope it will be available in the shop soon.

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!

EDIT: and a couple little trilobites? What are those from? Did you make them custom 3D printing?
And a positive for bmathison1972! Always a pleasure.

They are 3D printed, the rolled one is a scan of a Flexicalymene fossil courtesy of Digimorphs, and the other is distributed by, of all things, the Yahoo Japan Thingiverse account.

Other/Miscellaneous / Amazing Ant (Becker & Meyer)
« Last post by bmathison1972 on Today at 12:28:51 AM »
Time for another one of those fun, novelty walk-arounds. This time, it's the Amazing Ant by Becker & Meyer, released in 2003. This is a simpler version of some of the anatomy model kits by other companies, such as 4D Master, etc. Still, it has an irresistible charm to it!  :). I should point out early, this was free from stargatedalek! I only had to pay for shipping! And a quick internet search doesn't show it being relatively available anywhere so I am glad to have gotten it.

The ant comes in 11 pieces:top, bottom, 2 antennae, internal organs (combined in one), and 6 legs. The body is clear, revealing the internal organs. This particular figure is missing one antennae (stars made that clear to me, so I knew it was incomplete beforehand). I will probably seal the parts with glue or something.

The figure measures 10 cm not including appendages, and the way the legs sprawl it takes up roughly 10 x 10 cm of ground space. Because it is not attributable to a given species, I cannot give a scale.

It's pretty simple and easy to assemble, so not much else to say. On to the pics:

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.

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.
