Given how Australian animals, both extant and extinct, receive relatively little attention from toy companies, I'm very glad that SR is limiting itself that way.

I have seen the diprotodon on the soutlands replicas facebook page replicas and I can say that the figure is excellent. At least as far as I'm concerned is the diprotodon I've always wanted. Painting details are missing.

Jason is a great sculptor.  ^-^

The diprotodon of soutlands replicas is almost ready here you pass a link to see the photos that you have to be registered in the forum.

It is a very detailed prehistoric mammal figure although it is not yet completely finished (it lacks painting),

I have bought the complete line (as the Aussie fan I am) and I can highly recommend it - especially for the extant species.
I love the fact that they are in scale to each other (1:15) and the figures look much better in hand than in the stock photos because most of them are pretty small.
The very small species (Quoll, Brushtail Possum, Platypus & Echidna) are in 1:12, but to me that's still okay. They all look great together.
There are no better Australian mammal figures. I can't wait for the next releases :)!

On their Facebook site they wrote they hadn't decided yet about the Diprotodon's colour and they can consider outer suggestions. So if somebody have some idea about a super colour scheme for their Diprotodon don't hesitate to write that for them.

Between the color of the coat of the diprotodon it would put it of brown color or brown beige color like figure in the major pictorial reconstructions of that animal. It would be an excellent figure.  ^-^

I was just wondering what happened to that line, how many figures they have released so far?

They’ve released a good many extant animals, all Australian, all mammals. Their latest ones are a family of wild horses. The Diprotodon is only their third extinct animal; I’m told they’re hoping to get it out in the second part of 2018.

It’s hard for a brand new company to get a strong foothold in this fiercely competitive world, so I doubt we’ll be seeing any dinosaurs in the very near future. Keep your fingers crossed!

I'd be very curious to see a dinosaur from them, I think this brand have the same potential of Eofauna. We'll see.

just wondering about the scale of their figures?

From what I can gather, Southlands Replicas says that most of their figures (including both of their extinct animals) are in 1:15 scale, with their smallest figures in 1:12 scale.


I'm guessing the Diprotodon will be the former of the two scales.
"...And their testimony described giant feather covered monsters that devoured people whole."

Jason from Minizoo told me that the diprotodon from soutlands replicas will be released this year but has not specified a date. I guess we'll have to wait.

On the facebook page of soutlands Replicas he commented that they are eager to produce the diprotodon.  :)
