April's Acquisitions part 3
I can't believe we're almost at the end of April already. Thanks to all the people who have been voting for the picture of next month.
I'm pretty sure there won't be an "April's Acquisitions part 4" lol I've bought too many figurines this month! Though I've got them at good prices.
Then I've had a few really nice trades with people...
First up are some wonderful models I got from trades with STS forum friends:
Safari ltd Capybara and North American Badger, many thanks to Scott!!:) I love them, fantastic figurines!
The Capybara was a gift from Scott, it's such a lovely figurine.
Kaiyodo from left to right:
Furuta Great Spotted Woodpecker - Birdtales Green Woodpecker - Furuta Black Woodpecker
Big thanks to Jarda for these beautiful birds!:) And for the gift of the Green Woodpecker.
Even has little eggs, so cute!
Next are figurines I've bought:
Papo Rough Collie
Papo Pyrenean Bear
Safari ltd Malayan Tapir
Schleich Aylesbury duck

April's Acquisitions part 2
The first two are trades from collector friends on STS
Kaiyodo Rock Ptarmigan (summer plumage) Birdtales series 3
Bullyland Alaskan Malamute
Now some I bought online
CollectA Red Setter
This model is so beautiful, thoroughly recommend it. I love the sculpting, the fur is amazing!
Papo Irish Setter
I like him, but the back right leg juts out at a weird angle.
Complete dog collection for far!

Some additions from last month
I came across a UK site and noticed they had several retired Schleich, some of which were hard to find and expensive to buy anywhere else.
I bought the Schleich Giant Schnauzer, which was the last one in stock, for only £3.40! I've seen it for sale for £12 or more.
I'm into collecting dog figurines at the moment for some reason - I'm looking for the Schleich Airedale at the moment and the lying down Newfoundland dog.
The rest of my order consisted of the pig sow, Bernese Mountain dog and the two Golden Retrievers.
All my additions with Westie for scale
From a different shop I bought, for next to nothing, the Schleich Bernese Mountain dog sitting
Then from Emma (Jumping Lemurs eBay) I bought the Mojo Crocodile and Lion
Very pleased with them both, especially the croc, he's fabulous!
