FigureFocus 315 Kaiyodo ChocoEgg Japanese Giant Salamander

I’m going to look at another Kaiyodo ChocoEgg figure today, not surprising since I have so many of them! This is one from the very first Furuta Animaltales series, the one that kicked it all off! The first several series was, I think, entirely focused on Japanese fauna, which was fantastic for those of usContinue reading “FigureFocus 315 Kaiyodo ChocoEgg Japanese Giant Salamander”

FigureFocus 306 Kaiyodo Dinotales Carnotaurus

But always great to look at the history a bit more. As said before, the series was released as a gashapon set in orContinue reading “Vault Tales 285 Run the Set Kaiyodo National Museum of Nature & Science”

Vault Tales 263 Kaiyodo Dinoland 100mm Barosaurus

This post will be taking a look another figure from Kaiyodo, but one unlike anything I’ve covered before! Most of the Kaiyodo figures I’ve covered have fallen into a broadly toy-like category; many are kind of breakable, but the initial prices and methods of sale indicate that they were meant for play and collectors ofContinue reading “Vault Tales 263 Kaiyodo Dinoland 100mm Barosaurus”
