FigureFocus 275 PNSO Haylee the Helicoprion

Due to recent events, I’m going to make this a quick single-figure post. In this case (in case the title didn’t give it away) it will be a somewhat recent ‘shark’ figure from PNSO, Haylee the Helicoprion, number 43 in their Prehistoric Animal Models series. It’s hard to believe that there’s already so many inContinue reading “FigureFocus 275 PNSO Haylee the Helicoprion”

In recent years Takara has started releasing small gashapon sets of figures, usually 3 to five figures, a little larger than more familiar Kaiyodo, Yujin, and similar models. Most are in aContinue reading “Vault Tales 272 Run the Set Takara Monster Fish”

Vault Tales 271 FigureFrenzy Pufferfish, TroutPerch, Perch, Crocodile shark

Start of a new year! So let’s start with a variety of fish! Colorata Saltwater Fish 1 Tiger Pufferfish Our first fish of 2022 is the Tiger Pufferfish from Colorata, number 14 in the original Saltwater Fish box set. It’s a magnificent figure, lots of detail and colour. As is is common with about halfContinue reading “Vault Tales 271 FigureFrenzy Pufferfish, TroutPerch, Perch, Crocodile shark”
