FigureFocus 309 Shapeways 3D Printed Diplocaulus

Well, let’s go back to a prehistoric animal, and a 3D-printed one no less. This is another Shapeways model, from creator mmfrankford. The specific model is their take on Diplocaulus, the famous and popular boomerang-head ‘amphibian’ from the late Palaeozoic. As I’m sure I mentioned before, I used to grab a bunch of Shapeways figuresContinue reading “FigureFocus 309 Shapeways 3D Printed Diplocaulus”

FigureFocus 305 Kaiyodo Capsule Q Feathered Tyrannosaurus

After a longer absence for no particular reason, I’m back with a classic dinosaur species–and let’s pretend that I picked it because Jurassic World Dominion is releasing a day from now (or so) and no matter what they do, Tyrannosaurus rex will always be the star dinosaur!

FigureFrenzy 276 Brachiosaurus, Spiny terrapin, Sand tiger shark, Caecillian

Let’s look at another weird range of figures. One of them isn’t much to look at–but how often do we see caecillian figures? Almost never to be exact. Kaiyodo Dinotales Series 2 Brachiosaurus First up, another of the great Dinotales figures, specifically the Brachiosaurus from series 2, number 27. There is not a lot toContinue reading “FigureFrenzy 276 Brachiosaurus, Spiny terrapin, Sand tiger shark, Caecillian”

Vault Tales 274 FigureFrenzy Conger eel, Andrewsarchus, Thylacine, Quetzalcoatlus

More variety–living, recently extinct, and prehistoric. The only thing that unites them is that they’re in my collection! And all of them are pretty great. Yujin Primary Seawater Fish Book 2 Japanese Conger Eel The only fish today! A pretty decent one, a Japanese Conger eel, number 30 in the Yujin “Primary Seawater Fish” PictorialContinue reading “Vault Tales 274 FigureFrenzy Conger eel, Andrewsarchus, Thylacine, Quetzalcoatlus”
