Let me just say, i love that glow in the dark mudpuppy, another thing that sort of caught my eye  was that worm life cycle, very unique indeed...

Some nice figures there, I particularly like the jaguar and the flaming horse. The puma doesn't look quite right, though, too heavy-bodied.

Most of the stuff Insect Lore made are crafts and such for kids or rearing/viewing materials for live insects. They did however make a series of very nice life cycles: earthworm, ant, silkworm moth, painted lady butterfly, mantis, ladybug, darkling beetle...maybe a frog too (cant remember).

I have zero Insect Lore figures but I'd love to see a thread about them - especially since collectors' photos may help to decide if I want to get some of them and which of them. :)

I have all the arthropod life cycles and will eventually post them within their appropriate taxonomic places lol

The Ant Life Cycle, does anyone have this? I would be very keen to add this to my collection.

Overall? They suck. Is that too harsh? No, because from an animal-collector POV, they suck. Tools? Wow.

Unless you count the Chinese Zodiac toob (if you're from another part of Asia? Sorry, your animals don't count). And I won't, because it probably means an astrological-sign toob is coming.

Yeah, I'm disappointed at the lack of new animal toobs. Personally I would've loved a canine toob, or a cats one. Or anything that can fit in a vaquita.

And what's with the family toob? The way they dress makes it seem like they're in a cult.

Darn, most of the images have gone. I need to start hosting images in threads like this myself to ensure they stay there in perpetuity.
