FigureFrenzy 297 River dolphin, Komodo dragon, Coral snake, Mekosuchine

Another very random foursome. Really, really random–mostly reptiles though, by accident. But a good assortment! Safari Ltd South American Animals toob Amazon River Dolphin First up, an Amazon River Dolphin figure from the 2021 Amazon River animals toob from Safari.

In keeping with the theme, I’ll keep it short (there’s onlyContinue reading “FigureFrenzy 286 Tree frog, Owl, Bat-eared fox, Manta ray”

FigureFrenzy 284 Brontosaurus, Dimetrodon, Gomphotherium, Velociraptor

Taking a look at a weird and wide variety of prehistoric figures. Representing all kinds of geologic ages and taxonomic groups! Also…pretty wide range of quality. Dino Magic Fizz-N-Surprise ‘Brontosaurus’ Skeleton (GLOW!) Well let’s start with what will obviously be the low point…another figure from the Dino Magic series. I have to say, it’s representativeContinue reading “FigureFrenzy 284 Brontosaurus, Dimetrodon, Gomphotherium, Velociraptor”
