*gasps* :o


Kaiyodo will release a huge (around 70 cm) "1/35" Blue Whale!
Finally we get one that matches most sauropod Toy figures in scale! 8)
I already preordered one from HLJ (release is scheduled for March 2015): http://www.hlj.com/product/KYD00031/Fig

WOW! do you think they will use typical major brand plastic for the blue whale figure?

I would guess it'll be hollow vinyl like Kaiyodo has previously used for large models. A figure of that size could easily weigh about two or three kilograms if it is not hollow.

                       ....... awesome :-X.


Do they charge money for pre-orders at HLJ or do they wait until the model is available?

No, you won't have to pay anything until it becomes available. I ordered quickly because i had the feeling after a certain amount of preorders they'd put it on "order stop" and won't take any more orders. I won't be charged before the model is available and there are no fees. Customer service and shipping policy are also great at HLJ so I'm very happy to be able to get it from them. :)

I heard from Brettnj (when he sent out the announcement for it) that it will be vinyl

This looks to be an absolutely amazing piece, I'd get it if only I had the money. Oh and then there's this "out of space" thing which I hear people besides me responsible people talk about all the time ;)
I really do wish I could get it, perhaps someday.

That was my thought, too, that it would almost certainly be made of hollow vinyl - Kaiyodo made large, hollow vinyl figures before, e.g. the Dinoland series and I believe the larger Aqualand (not the smaller polyresins) models were hollow, too. Good, that will make international shipping costs a bit less painful, I hope. :)

a mosquito would be nice, but with the apparent focus on public health, wouldnt imagine a termite among this set. I always thought it would be neat for a company (even Safari LTDs 'Safariology') to do a termite caste set: gravid queen, winged male, soldier, worker.

So there, as miwashi already posted here the CapsuleQ Museum "Leopard Gecko" set is out. :) Four colour versions of the Leopard Gecko, Eublepharis macularius (i.e. wild form and three colour variants that are popular in the pet trade), as well as the Smooth Knob-tailed Gecko, Nephrurus levis, and the Phantastic or Satanic Leaf-tailed Gecko, Uroplatus phantasticus:

...and the Leopard Gecko wild form would be this one:

...and now you guys can actually use the word 'Phantastic' properly! Although it comes from a work meaning imaginary and not the outdated version of 'fantastic' Grrrrr.... (what can I say, I was raised by an editor LOL)

thanks Helge, I was looking for an image to post.

This is a set of invasive species to Japan, I guess the only way we are going to get extralimital taxa from them...  ::)

Anyone care to guess which figure I am 'antsy' for?  ;D

very cool, esp. the bass and the snapper (for me).
