I was worried that these would be magnets (the photos look kind of flat). But I have seen a picture of the anaconda from the top and the side, so nope, just a figure!

I've already got a few requested through Brett.

the apparent seams in the capybara would also suggest actual 3D figures!

There's some on YAJ that are clearly full figures (in their capsules). Being Takara, I would be surprised if they didn't have the usual black bases.

Excellent, I've just seen the set on Rakuten, too. :) They look great, however, this time I'm not too enthusiastic about the Hercules Beetle. Probably because there are already so many good figures around... Well, while T-A.R.T.S did make magnets before, I think these would most likely fully three-dimensional figures. Why make a support stand for the Arapaima when it's just a magnet that wouldn't need a stand.
