FigureFrenzy 295 Aye-Aye, Beipiaosaurus, Chuckwalla, Lobsters

We’re just going all over the place this time. Kind of a little of this, a little of that. Sometimes things are really, really random!

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.

Sea Cucumbers large & small First up, a pair of weird little figures that I picked up at variousContinue reading “Vault Tales 245 FigureFrenzy Sea Cucumber, Sea Star, Pipefish, Garden eels, Goby”

Vault Tales 244 Run the Set OUMCRAFT ‘Life’ Game figures part 3

Way back in April of 2021, I received a package from Thailand featuring a number of prehistoric animal models meant to be used with the Life game by designer Oumcraft.
