Here they are again in all their glory! :)
I believe in the long run several threads for different bird groups may become necessary. Thinking of the collections of some others that I've seen, phew, that would fill a few pages... (I wonder how many Kikimalou has?) ;D But then I guess there would still be the possibility to make this something like a Kaiyodo Birds or Gashapon Birds thread?

I think you've got a point there. It should be more specific. I changed the thread's title.

The Biwako Little Grebes are lovely. 8) Too bad I broke the removable "water" of my standing one... I glued the parts together again but it doesn't look as it was anymore. :-[

I truly don't know which reaction would be most appropriate.

Alright, then, I'll stick to my usual:  :'(

I have 317 birds, 140 different species, but some  ;D are not Japanese stuff... And I can see on this thread a few models I still need to catch !

At least there is this Great hornbill I bought on Jauce. The pic is again so so, I will make another one soon. I don't know the brand, maybe someone could have information.

This shoebill is a very rare must have. I hope a company will make one more easily available...

It's indeed a very fine and rare figure (I have it, too, it's in my signature ^-^) - or does the seller we got them from still have some?. And it wasn't cheap.

I don't have that many bird figures from Japanese manufacturers, some of my best (a few of the Natural Monuments of Japan) I received from Helge. :)
But I never really focused on birds enough, so I have really quite few.


Apteryx australis (Shaw & Nodder, 1813); Southern Brown Kiwi, Tokoeka, or Common Kiwi. Furuta Choco Egg Funny Animals Series 7. Length 47 mm, scale approx. 1:10 - 1:12.


Sula nebouxii Milne-Edwards, 1882; Blue-footed Booby. Furuta ChocoEgg Funny AnimaFuruta ChocoEgg Funny Animals Series 6. Length 55 mm, scale approx. 1:14 - 1:15.


Phoebastria (syn. Diomedea) immutabilis (Rothschild, 1893); Laysan Albatross. Kaiyodo Aquatales series 2 secret. Length 39 mm, wing span 79 mm, scale approx. 1:21 - 1:25.


Larus crassirostris Vieillot, 1818; Black-tailed Gull. Furuta Choco Egg Animatales Series 4. Length 72 mm, scale approx. 1:6.5.


Pinguinus (syn. Alca) impennis (Linnaeus, 1758); Great Auk or Garefowl. Horico Kaiyodo Penguin's Lunch Biscuit Penguin Figure Collection Series 1 secret. Length 68 mm, height 50 mm, scale approx. 1:12 - 1:14.

Thanks, Kikimalou & Jetoar! It's one of my favourite bird figures. :) I've never seen it on ebay but on Jauce there were sometimes two or three of them at the same time, it doesn't seem to be that rare. In the end I had to decide whether I'd buy only this one or the whole set for some ¥800 or so more. So I took the whole set. There's also a second series which I didn't buy. This is the rest of the set (and a Humboldt Penguin from the Shinagawa Aquarium series):


Aptenodytes patagonicus J.F. Miller, 1778; King Penguin. Length 62.5 mm, height 50 mm, scale approx. 1:15.



Aptenodytes forsteri Gray, 1844; Emperor Penguin. Length 58 mm, scale approx. 1:20. Emperor Penguin Chick. Height 27 mm, scale... hmm, possibly 1:5 or 1:6 upward.


Pygoscelis adeliae (Hombron & Jacquinot, 1841); Adelie Penguin. Length 57 mm, height 46 mm, scale approx. 1:12.


Pygoscelis papua (Forster, 1781); Gentoo Penguin. Length 64 mm, height 49 mm, scale approx. 1:11 - 1:14.


Eudyptes chrysolophus (Brandt, 1837); Rockhopper Penguin or Macaroni Penguin. Length 59 mm, height approx. 40 mm, scale approx. 1:12.


Eudyptula minor (J.R. Forster, 1781); Little Penguin. Length approx. 36 mm, height approx. 35 mm, scale approx. 1:11.


Spheniscus demersus (Linnaeus, 1758); Cape Penguin. Length approx. 50 mm, height 40 mm, scale approx. 1:14.


Spheniscus humboldti Meyen, 1834; Humboldt Penguin (Sphenisciformes: Spheniscidae). Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 3 - Shinagawa Aquarium. Length 52 mm, scale approx. 1:11 - 1:13.
