Vault Tales 183 Run the Set Yowies Australia Series 1

Going to look at another set today–the first series of Australian Yowies! It was a big set, with 50 figures (not counting variants) but I have managed to get a number of them. Let’s take a quick look! I did discuss one of the figures in detail once before, the Northern Mastiff Bat, and visitedContinue reading “Vault Tales 183 Run the Set Yowies Australia Series 1”

Vault Tales 182 FigureFrenzy Hyena, Spinosaurus, Polar bear, Sea turtles, Sasquatch

So I decided to change things up a little, as mentioned at the end of my last post. It felt like it would be more fun to do more figures, with shorter discussions.

Vault Tales 180 Run the Set Colorata Endangered Species Fossil Fish Box (2nd version)

Today I’m going to look at another Colorata set, one of the most exciting ones to me! This is the Endangered Species Fossil Fish box. Specifically, the second released version, from about 2010 or 2011–I got it in late 2011 and probably didn’t wait very long! And why didn’t I wait very long? Because itContinue reading “Vault Tales 180 Run the Set Colorata Endangered Species Fossil Fish Box (2nd version)”

Vault tales 179 – Clades – Euchondrocephali

Already another ‘clades’ post, but this time one with a few more figures at least! This one will be Euchondrocephali–a group of shark-like chondrichthyan fish that are more closely related to the holocephalans (the modern ratfish Chimaera and elephantnose fish Callorhinchus). The funny thing is that for the longest time, these fish were assumed toContinue reading “Vault tales 179 – Clades – Euchondrocephali”
