Vault Tales 187 FigureFrenzy Nasutoceratops, Uintatherium, Dunkleosteus, Smilodon

New Figure Frenzy, with a bunch of larger figures! Interestingly, we’re going to hit the three geologic eras (and the kind of fourth, based on the original breakdown into four).

One ofContinue reading “Vault Tales 187 FigureFrenzy Nasutoceratops, Uintatherium, Dunkleosteus, Smilodon”

Vault Tales 167 CollectA Smilodon

It’s also a chance to work through the list a little faster…I’m not going to run through it anytime soon,Continue reading “Vault Tales 118 ToyTrio Nimravid, Iberian Lynx, Ichthyosaur”
