Vault Tales 223 Run the Set Kaiyodo CapsuleQ Excavation Dinosaurs of Japan

So, we revisit Kaiyodo capsule figures once again. This time they are not truly Dinotales but are obviously the heirs to that wonderful and sorely missed line.

Vault Tales 219 FigureFrenzy Cockatoo, Coyote, Eel, Goblin shark, Wakaleo

Back to a randomized figure frenzy. And this one is very, very random! A lot of these will also be pretty quick…sometimes there just isn’t much to say… Safari Ltd toob Sulfur-Crested Cockatoo First up we have a Sulfur-Crested cockatoo from Safari toobs. It has actually shown up in at least two toobs. The firstContinue reading “Vault Tales 219 FigureFrenzy Cockatoo, Coyote, Eel, Goblin shark, Wakaleo”
