Vault Tales 255 FigureFrenzy Betta, Capybara, Catfish, Wiwaxia, Mammoth+Smilodon

Another FigureFrenzy! And it’s going to be very random…all over the place, really. Little of everything. Although they’re all small, and all part of larger sets so…unifying features? Marmit World of Tropical Fish Betta First up, another aquarium fish figure from Marmit, a Siamese fighting fish or Betta.

Vault Tales 145 ToyTrio Ayu, Brown trout, Wels catfish

So, another trio and this time it’s all (mostly) freshwater fish! All of them being ones that are frequently caught by anglers, for various reasons. Plus, I don’t think any of these fish figures are actually still in production anymore…so there’s that. Yujin Freshwater Fish Pictorial book 1 Ayu Our first one is a fishContinue reading “Vault Tales 145 ToyTrio Ayu, Brown trout, Wels catfish”

Vault Tales Run the Set 111 ToyFishFactory American Angler Collection
