Vault Tales 198 Run the Set Kaiyodo Takara ChocoQ Amazing Animals

It’s a Run the Set today, a few figures from one of the last Kaiyodo Choco animal series. In this case, it was a set called Amazing Animals, released with Takara in the rebranded ‘ChocoQ’ line. This occurred after Kaiyodo parted ways with Furuta in about 2003 (I think); from what I recall, Kaiyodo hadContinue reading “Vault Tales 198 Run the Set Kaiyodo Takara ChocoQ Amazing Animals”

Safari Ltd Prehistoric Sharks Toob Orthacanthus This could possibly be the first figure from the Safari Prehistoric SharksContinue reading “Vault Tales 144 ToyTrio Orthacanthus, Frilled shark, Blacktip Reef shark”

Vault tales 86 Furuta ChocoEgg Series 6 Meerkat

Who makes it? Made for the Furuta ChocoEgg series 6, I think by Takara. Number 24 in the set. When did it come out? It was released in 2002. Still available? Like many of these sets, these were available as short promotions. So no, not available (new) anymore. Where can it be found in myContinue reading “Vault tales 86 Furuta ChocoEgg Series 6 Meerkat”
