Vault Tales 251 Run the Set BattleTop Dinosaurs (unknown maker)

So, today, a very strange one. One which I’ve had for about 15 years now. It’s a set of dinosaur figures that look an awful lot like Dinosaur King figures. Except that they came mounted on battle top (early 2000s…it was a big thing). And while they were carded, they were not branded as DinosaurContinue reading “Vault Tales 251 Run the Set BattleTop Dinosaurs (unknown maker)”

Vault Tales 250 Run the Set Toys Spirits Super Long Moray Mascot

It’s going to be a fast one today, but a really unique one. A set that came out recently (I received them in August, I think?), it’s a series from a Japanese group called Toys Spirits.

Vault Tales 249 Run the Set Safari Ltd Pelagic Fishes toob

In this instance,Continue reading “Vault Tales 249 Run the Set Safari Ltd Pelagic Fishes toob”

Vault Tales 248 Run the Set Safari Ltd Prehistoric Mammal Skulls toob

Another toob set! This time a prehistoric one again, featuring more skulls! I looked at some other Safari toob sets before–a dinosaur skull toob and, related to today, a modern mammal skull toob. So today it will be the third and what appears to be final Safari skulls toob, the Prehistoric Mammal Skulls toob! TheContinue reading “Vault Tales 248 Run the Set Safari Ltd Prehistoric Mammal Skulls toob”

Vault Tales 243 Run the Set Safari Ltd Alligators Alive! toob

Now with another toob from Safari! This one has a very narrow theme, in this case focusing on a number of American Alligator figures (and a few associated reptiles from their normal range). In a way, it’s surprising that a toob like this didn’t come out sooner–Safari Ltd is a company founded and based inContinue reading “Vault Tales 243 Run the Set Safari Ltd Alligators Alive! toob”
