Bullyland - New for 2017
« on: January 04, 2017, 02:25:32 AM »
Bullyland is announcing there 2017 figures. I am jumping the gun because three are of particular interest to me: white-kneed tarantula, blue ornamental tarantula, and....a velvet spider, Eresus kollari (last image)!!!! This is the first figure, to my knowledge, of a member of the family Eresidae! And I think all three species are NEW figures at the species-level!







I'll let other post other animals. Frankly their dinosaurs and wildlife aren't that particularly exciting (or good!).

Their dinosaurs this year are pretty sad, but I haven't seen the other vertebrates yet to say. Hopefully they are more alike to these lovely spiders (I could ahve sworn I'd saw a blue ornamental before).

stargatedalek, I agree both the animal and dinosaur figures for 2017 are pretty sad looking considering that Bullyland have made some great figures before.  :-\

Maybe. Play Visions did an Indian Ornamental tarantula that's in the same genus but a different species, and there are a couple figuresmall of cobalt blue tarantulas which again are different

I was probably thinking of one of the cobalt, thanks.

Yay, so Bullyland makes an Eresus kollari male? :o 8) And is this the first ever Poecilotheria metallica figure? Was about time someone made one of the most popular theraphosids in toy form!

Hmmm. . . Bullyland has gone downhill, I'm afraid severely for both extant and extinct animals
(I have an account on DinoToyForum too).  :-[   :'(

Do you have the same name on the DTF, or a different one?
I like turtles.

No, BlueKrono my favorite Dinosaur is Deinocheirus, which should give you a hint.

Ha! See, the spiders were the best in the lot! :-) (although if I was a generalist I'd probably get the hamster too). The wolves are dreadful (well, for the standards we set for a major company), but maybe it's just these particular paint jobs.

Ah, well it wouldn't be inappropriate. There were prehistoric cetaceans after all. But on the topic at hand, I will probably actually buy the hamster. It's the color morph that I collect.

Your right BlueKrono, but I still love the fact that the Deinocheirus is one of, if not the most mysterious extinct animals.
Although I do like the Basilosaurus, Dorudon, and other types that I'm not aware of.
Also my username on DTF is JoeyTheDeinocheirus

Seriously... while I will certainly get at least two (if not all three) of the spiders the rest is quite disappointing for me. :-\

These models just remind us, more, of what Bullyland USED to be capable of. Their figures are more cartoon than model now. Which makes sense, since their licensed lines are all they really seem to care about these days.

Absolutely! To think that this is the same company that made the MuseumLine models with all those wonderful prehistoric mammals, pseudosuchians, and what not. :'(

I completely agree with you brontodocus and sbell, the company has gone very downhill, since they started making figures from cartoons.
