DT Adocus 4

Vault tales 41 Dinosaur Train Adocus

Who makes it? The company Learning Curve, as part of the series of figures with the Dinosaur Train PBS series. His name is apparently Adam. When did it come out? Originally came out in 2010 Adam the Adocus. He’s a very happy turtle. Still available? I honestly can’t tell. The distribution was always a bit […]

Saf Toob Bary 4

Vault tales 40 Safari Toob Baryonyx

Who makes it? Safari Ltd, as part of their Sue and Her Friends toob, item 681304. When did it come out? The toob that contained this figure came out in 2012. However, the sculpt was first released in 2006 with a different toob, the Carnivorous Dinosaurs toob. The way it’s posed, it looks like it’s […]

Who makes it? German company Schleich, part of their European Wildlife series. Item number 14241 When did it come out? The raven first came out in 2001.

Who makes it? One figure in the Safari Ltd Cambrian Life toob, number 677104. When did it come out? The toob was first released in 2013 The Charniodiscus figure! Not the most exciting organism…but their very existence is interesting, from a time before animals really started to take familiar shape. Still available? Unfortunately, no, the […]

Bully Diatryma 4

Vault tales 37 Bullyand Predatory Ratite

Who makes it? This figure is from the glory days of Bullyland’s Stuttgart Museum Prehistoric Mammals line, item number 58356. It was originally released as Diatryma, but the re-release labelled it Gastornis. If knowing the exact species is important, this figure is probably G. gigantea. since it’s the best known Gastornis skeleton. And the biggest […]

Yowies FF Atlas bear 3

Vault tales 36 Yowies Atlas Bear

Who makes it? From the last run of the original Australian Yowies Series, the Forgoten Friends B set. When did it come out?About 2002. Still available? No. They were always limited runs–kind of an Australian version of the Japanese Dinotales. Right down to being made of plastic pieces that needed to be built! Behold, the […]

FUL gila 2

Vault tales 35 FUL Gila Monster

Who makes it? Like the earlier FUL Octopus, I found this in a bag distributed by FUL. They are, however, now sold by all kinds of companies, including Wild Republic. It is part of a set of 12 lizards and salamanders. When did it come out? Hard to say. I’ve had them since 2006 of […]

Who makes it? It’s one of the model in the Safari Ltd Dinosaur skulls toob. Item number 687404 When did it come out? It was first released in 2009. Later in 2011, they released figures in a bulk bag. I have ones from both the toob and the bulk bag. They’re the same figure. Still […]

Aussini Chevro 1

Vault tales 33 Ausini Chevrotain

Who makes it? Once again the Random Number Generator seems…less random. Like the Wild Boar from a weeks ago this is a figure from the Ausini wild animals set. Like the rest of the set, nothing is labelled or identified by the company. My best guess is chevrotain (mouse deer)–it’s a pointy-nosed hoofed animal that […]

Safari toob Liopleur 3

Vault tales 32 Safari Toob Liopleurodon

Who makes it? Looks like the Random number generator really wanted to look into this set…same as the last post, it’s a figure from the Safari Prehistoric Sea Life toob, 682404 The massive (looking) Safari Toob Liopleurodon When did it come out? Still available? Where can it be found in my displays? How does it […]
