Anyone collect this line?  I bought a few off TGF Toys, fingers crossed that they look as good in person as the official pics.  I was pleased to see many of the different Australian animals that the other big companies don't really seem to make (dingo, echidna, numbat, wombat, devil, wallaby, etc), so I'm hoping to not be disappointed in the final product. :)

I have all of those and they are very well done. You will be pleased.

Do you have any photos you could share?  :D

I'd like to see photos of the entire set, too! 8)

Unfortunately, I have only very few of them but I can recommend the large Echidna and the Sydney Funnelweb Spider (these are the only Australian animals by them I have). :) I also have two of their New Zealand figures, the Tuatara and the Weta, they are quite good but I was a little disappointed by the Tuatara's paint work and by the Weta's deformed legs.

CM

Interesting, clearly the site I was ordering from did not have the entire set in stock.  Didn't know there was a tuatara, for example.  Too bad to hear about its paint, as it's not really a species I'd hold my breath to see from any of the majors.

Oh, it's still a good figure and worth getting (it's also quite inexpensive, usually). Stemturtle has just posted photos of it here. :)

Is that the large or the small version of the Echidna? If it's the latter the others would be huge, especially the Rock Wallaby! :o

It should be mentioned that these are Possums, not Opossums ;). Opossums live in South America.

dinocat62

Oops. Should have caught that. Also the Bandicoot is a Greater Bilby.
