Vault Tales 168 CollectA Deluxe Carcharodontosaurus

Keeping with this week’s incidental them of prehistoric CollectA figures, today we have one of the big deluxe dinosaurs. Specifically, the 2014-released Carcharodontosaurus, item number 88642. This is a big figure, which is fitting given that Carcharodontosaurus was a big predator of Cretaceous North Africa (possibly longer than the might T. rex!) and really makesContinue reading “Vault Tales 168 CollectA Deluxe Carcharodontosaurus”

Vault Tales 167 CollectA Smilodon

Here we have today’s VaultTale, just a single figure–the standard-collection Smilodon figure from CollectA.

Vault Tales 164 ToyTrio Snail, Amur catfish, Trilobite

So here we have yet another varied bunch of figures…from a varied bunch of companies. But they’re all aquatic, so that’s a connection!? FUL Snail (Periwinkle) large and small marine sets First up, a quick look at a pair of FUL marine set figures. This is the second snail from the set (I looked atContinue reading “Vault Tales 164 ToyTrio Snail, Amur catfish, Trilobite”
