Vault Tales 268 FigureFrenzy Ichthyosaurus, Opabinia, Ammonite, Stethacanthus

All prehistoric! All aquatic! All kinds of different taxonomic groups. And wildly diffefrent companies. Just a small glimpse of the range of figures I have I guess. Dinotales Series 2 Ichthyosaurus We’ll start with a figure from a series that, of course, I’ve looked at many times before, from Kaiyodo Dinotales series 2. In thisContinue reading “Vault Tales 268 FigureFrenzy Ichthyosaurus, Opabinia, Ammonite, Stethacanthus”

Vault Tales 267 FigureFrenzy Smilodon, Alphadon, Macrauchenia, Hyena

In this instance, it is all of the figures that I have from the second release, which in my case is 16 of the 24…and it looks like thatContinue reading “Vault Tales 265 Run the Set Playmates Dinosaur King Series 2”

Vault Tales 264 Monterey Bay and Wild Safari Giant Squid

We’re going to look at a pair of figures from Safari Ltd today, two different takes on the same animal. I am speaking of their larger figures of the Giant Squid (the photo and title probably gave that away…!) I decided to look at the two since they are from the same maker, within aboutContinue reading “Vault Tales 264 Monterey Bay and Wild Safari Giant Squid”
