FigureFocus 310 Bullyland Gomphotherium

So here’s a fun figure from a line I haven’t talked about enough. Another figure from the Bullyland Naturkundemuseum Stuttgart Prehistoric Mammal line. As I’ve said, this was a wonderful series with a relatively broad (especially for the late 90s) diversity of Cenozoic prehistoric animals (admittedly, all but one were mammals). This figure, the GomphotheriumContinue reading “FigureFocus 310 Bullyland Gomphotherium”

FigureFocus 309 Shapeways 3D Printed Diplocaulus

Well, let’s go back to a prehistoric animal, and a 3D-printed one no less. This is another Shapeways model, from creator mmfrankford. The specific model is their take on Diplocaulus, the famous and popular boomerang-head ‘amphibian’ from the late Palaeozoic. As I’m sure I mentioned before, I used to grab a bunch of Shapeways figuresContinue reading “FigureFocus 309 Shapeways 3D Printed Diplocaulus”

FigureFocus 308 Groovy Tubes Arctic Chill Arctic Fox

It’s another figure from one of the Innovative Kids book+game+figures sets, another animal from the Arctic Chill box set (the polar bear was seen here). As I’ve mentioned before, these are interesting sets (that are of course no longer available) that contained fairly decent books, rudimentary games, and a collection of animal figures that mightContinue reading “FigureFocus 308 Groovy Tubes Arctic Chill Arctic Fox”

FigureFocus 307 Schleich Cow (Minis)

Haven’t posted in a bit…and this one’s going to be appropriately short for a small figure. This one is from the classic Schleich ‘Minis’ series, initiated in 1965 and as a group discontinued in 2005. In particular, this is the basic ‘Kuh‘ or Cow, as in domestic cow, item number 10067. I don’t know whenContinue reading “FigureFocus 307 Schleich Cow (Minis)”

FigureFocus 306 Kaiyodo Dinotales Carnotaurus

Time to look at another small Kaiyodo dinosaur figure. This time, it is from the classic and beloved Dinotales figures. This one is from series 5, after Kaiyodo had split from UHA and moved over to being collected with CC (a drink company…I think). This was the only time Dinotales collaborated with CC. As anContinue reading “FigureFocus 306 Kaiyodo Dinotales Carnotaurus”
