Oh that's shame, I thought reviewing the animal figures in a similar style to the DTB would have been cool...

I guess if we give it some time it may develop, eventually? I see much potential in reviews, it's much more obvious to test a figure's accuracy for example than on a figure representing a prehistoric organism since much more information is available.

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a T-rex by Krentz? My friends all have Sideshow, I must make amends.

Maybe an animal toy blog will spawn into being some day...who knows. Actually, I think there's a blog system mod I could integrate into the forum. But for now I'll just focus on the forum!

I wonder if the busy first day is just due to the excitement of it being new. Maybe it will calm down, but I hope it keeps busy, first impressions are that it looks like I made the right decision to launch the new forum. :)

Good luck to the Animal Toy Forum! As for myself, I probably wont registrate due to a lack of interest and time, but I think there are many enthusiasts out there. Yet I know the niche is already being filled by all the Schleich forums - what would the exact speciality of the ATF be?

Have you been to STS? Each post seems to compete to see how many emoticons can fit into a single post...

But they do have lots of good pictures, and often have them earlier than many other places.

That's what I said a while back- and we have Laughing Giraffe too- but I guess I'm a hypocrite since I joined anyway. My main interest in the forum is really the buying aspect of it- I was hoping that someone might be able to help me add more to my lizard collection :)

Laughing Giraffe barely functions anymore--I am guessing that between the popularity of STS and the LG policy of not being allowed to sell, mention ebay auctions, or even discussing values probably chases away most collectors (for whom trading, selling, buying and auctions are kind of important).

yes indeed. buying/selling/trading is some sort of religion among collectors. and LG has that unfriendly aura about it (mainly emanating from its admin perhaps).

If you don't mind me asking, who is the admin of LG? :)

The name Helen rings a bell, but otherwise I have no real idea.

Hmm, I think it is unfair and unfitting to gossip like this so I ask politely for us not to continue the thread in that direction. Thanks!

Sorry, that wasn't my intention :-[ I was just curious.

Hm. Ive been strolling around the ATF for a while now and I must say, its a nice place to go although there are no prehistorics there! I think Im going to join and contribute to it occasionally. But noone should expect extraordinary activity. Here at the DTF I already had to reduce activity to occasional postings, which is a pity, since I still have a strong feeling of being home when Im here. Unfortunately my work demands lots of time. However, Im gonna stay here, in a forum where being a member is a pleasure and enter ATF, too.

You are always welcome Stefan, even as a lurker. :D

Yes, there are a few ATF members who aren't DTF members. As the site climbs up the google rankings and becomes more widely known I'm sure the community will grow with proper 'newbies', and they are most welcome!  :D

A pair of matching favicons. ;D The ATF has settled on an elephant toy favicon that's intended to mirror the DTF Invicta Brachiosaurus favicon :)
