Vault Tales 273 FigureFrenzy Marmot, Velociraptor, Giant cheetah, Wild ass

Another very random batch. Minis. Metals. Mammals. Just more randomness. Schleich Minis Marmot We’re going to start small, with this mini Alpine Marmot from the old Schleich mini series series, number 10074.

Vault Tales 227 FigureFrenzy Cheetah, Iguanodon, Milkfish, Sifaka, Sturgeon

Well, today is about as random as they’re going to get. All over the place in terms of species, quality, brand, materials…Kind of like my actual collection, it can be kind of all over the place! Schleich Bayala Arelan Cheetah Our first figure is a Cheetah from Schleich, but not one of the wildlife figures.Continue reading “Vault Tales 227 FigureFrenzy Cheetah, Iguanodon, Milkfish, Sifaka, Sturgeon”
