By the way, do you have a proper name?

Sounds a bit odd calling you "animaltoyforum"...  ;D

There are twelve contenders now. I could start the poll, but I reckon there are still a few more toys we could add for contention?

I don't have a lot of pics left either, except for what was used for the banner. So, that being said, the CollectA leopard seal and secretary bird and Schleich moon (sun?) bear might also be worthy candidates.

Okay, there are 15 contenders. If everyone is happy that their own personal top ten is represented amongst those fifteen, I'll create the poll. Check the list in the first post, then speak now or forever hold your peace...  ^-^

Hooray!
It's a pity there aren't even 20 extant animal figures though.
I like turtles.

There could have been, if forum members were more vocal about possible choices  C:-)

I'm pretty sure the figure that is called a 'Schleich Moon (Sun?) bear' in the list is actually a Sloth bear.

Also, if I can make suggestions at this point in the poll's creation, I think the CollectA Saiga and Bongo would both be worthy competitors. If not, then go ahead and start the poll.

Ten - only the ones that you would actually cast a vote for. Welcome to the forum by the way!

Thanks or the suggestions. And Badger, too! I'll add them to the list.

OK, I've updated the list with the new suggestions, we have 26 now, so that'll give us plenty of choice. I just need to find images (which can be time consuming) so I can add them to the first post, then I'll set up the poll.

Was the Kaiyodo Bird Garden set 2016 or 2017? That's another 4 species (albeit 3 sculpts).

I can't find them listed in either the 2016 or 2017 "New for" sections. A forum search didn't yield any results either. Have they been discussed on the forum anywhere?
http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t18668-parrots-bird-garden-capsule-q-museum

It was a 2017 set. Even though the caiques are separate subspecies I wouldn't include both of them, but I would include both the blue and gold and rainbow macaws.

*edit*
The Kitan club Japanese common toad and Safari reef squid warrant inclusion.

okay! :)

I need help. Is this the correct The Kitan club Japanese common toad? http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=339.msg3052#msg3052

Because the walk-around is from 2013.

Edit - also, is this the correct Papo sloth?


Edit - ...also there is more than one Papo Walrus. Which one is the 2017 one!?

The 2017 toad is posed like it's being held in ones hand, hadn't realized it's not been reviewed here.

If no-one has that whole set I can put up a walkaround of just the toad itself when I get around to posting photos again (camera issues).

Thanks Badger and Stargatedalek.

Stargatedalek, I found this stock image online. Looks right!?



But, yes, a walkaround would be great in any case!

Righty, I've added images to the first post for ease of comparison, and the poll is now open! Hopefully I haven't made any mistakes interpreting the suggestions!

So, please cast your votes now! You can pick ten options, so please do select your own personal top ten.

If your favourites aren't on the shortlist, well, where were you the past few weeks? :P That's too bad. :'(

Happy voting!
