FigureFocus 320 Safari Ltd South American toob Three-toed Sloth

Another Safari toob figure already, but this one is very new. From the South American animals toob released in 2001, item 100684, it is the Three-toed Sloth. These are becoming popular animals as figures (and cultural memes) and Safari has already made at least one larger figure as well (a two-toed) in a very differentContinue reading “FigureFocus 320 Safari Ltd South American toob Three-toed Sloth”

FigureFocus 319 Safari Ltd Exotic Birds toob Scarlet Ibis

Quick look at more dinosaurs…but a modern one this time! It’s a Scarlet Ibis from a Safari toob. The original toob is the Exotic Birds toob, item 680404, first released in 2006.

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. This toob, number 100684, is a great set, a most recent one from Safari’s recentContinue reading “FigureFrenzy 297 River dolphin, Komodo dragon, Coral snake, Mekosuchine”

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! Nayab/FUL/Lontic Lobsters and Spiny Lobster I’m going to start with a trio of crustaceans that, I think, are all from the same company (Lontic, Nayab, FUL, whatever…) The style isContinue reading “FigureFrenzy 295 Aye-Aye, Beipiaosaurus, Chuckwalla, Lobsters”
