Vault Tales 188 Run the Set Kaiyodo Aquatales Series 1

We get to look at some figures from another Kaiyodo series, this time a bottlecap series with Glico drink company. There were two limited-time sets of Aquatales figures, featuring a variety of oceanic animals familiar to Japan. Today will be the figures that I have from series 1, which came out (and ended) in 2002.Continue reading “Vault Tales 188 Run the Set Kaiyodo Aquatales Series 1”

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.

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.

Because itContinue reading “Vault Tales 180 Run the Set Colorata Endangered Species Fossil Fish Box (2nd version)”

Vault Tales 175 Run the Set Kaiyodo DinoExpo 2002

Today will be another set, this one featuring a fine set from Kaiyodo–their models made as souvenirs for DinoExpo 2002! This was when the figures were still part of the Chocola Saurs brand, partnered within the UHA lines. Except, for the DinoExpo sets, they would pull out a few stops. In later years, the modelsContinue reading “Vault Tales 175 Run the Set Kaiyodo DinoExpo 2002”

Vault Tales 165 Run the Set Yowies UK series 2

Here we are with another Run the Set, and again it’s one where I don’t have the whole set…not even close. But I have a number of them, and I think entirely from one trade with someone! The UK Yowies were distributed by Cadbury, just like the Australian ones, and probably around the same time,Continue reading “Vault Tales 165 Run the Set Yowies UK series 2”
