As the ATF doesn't have an associated blog for reviews, we've set up a dedicated section of the forum for individual figure reviews and walk-arounds instead. Feel free to check it out, or even contribute, at http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/board,20.0.html



Sorry for the cheeky plug! :P It should be the last one for a while as it's time for me to turn my attention to the dinotoyblog and some long overdue dinosaur reviews ;)

So as not to muddy the Dinosaur Toy Blog/Forum Facebook page with animal natter, I've set up a separate page for the Animal Toy Forum here: https://www.facebook.com/animaltoyforum We invite you to 'like' us  :-*  :))

Just another quick plug for the Animal Toy Forum, sister forum of the DTF. Of particular note, the reviews and walk-around section over there is populating rapidly. Contributions are always welcome!  C:-)

The final results of the Animal Toy Forum Diorama Contest 2013, sponsored by Safari Ltd, have now been announced. http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,709.0.html It took a tie-break poll, and even then there was a single vote between 1st and 2nd place!

My God, what an upset!  The winning dio isn't even in the same league as #2 or #3, in my opinion.

#3 SHOULD have won, and #2 should have been second ... just my 2 cents ... have no horse in that race ... just genuinely surprised, that's all ....

Of these three dios, #3 is the only one which - at first glance - absolutely looks REAL....

It was extremely close, a few votes one way or another, and the order of the winners could have been very different. With no run away winners, every vote truly counted on this occasion.

Yeah, I saw that too. I think the server must be down for maintenance or something. :o

No fear! It is just undergoing maintenance - my hosts are finally moving the database to a new, dedicated server. Hopefully this will fix the slowness issues and stop the forum going offline all the time. I was only given short notice of the move, and was at work, so didn't have an opportunity to inform everyone. Not even the staff  :-[ It should be back up and running soon.

The ATF is back up and running. Should be much faster and more reliable now.  C:-)

Avatars aren't working and the ATF won't allow me to upload a new one. What is going on :o?
