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 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!

Vault tales 162 Run the Set Agatsuma Strange Predators

But for whatever reason, in 2011 or so they decided to create a set of (almost) entirely aquatic predators. ButContinue reading “Vault tales 162 Run the Set Agatsuma Strange Predators”

Vault tales 156 Run the Set Play Visions Prehistoric Reptiles

Okay, so here’s a Run the Set for one of those sets that lots of collectors know about, and everybody wants…but can prove difficult to actually get anymore. It’s the Play Visions Prehistoric Marine Reptiles (aka Marine Dinosaurs…ugh) set, from 1998 and discontinued soon after. Play Visions was noteworthy at the time…and notorious now…for theirContinue reading “Vault tales 156 Run the Set Play Visions Prehistoric Reptiles”
