Maybe I'm the only one, but I'd love to see some of the weirdos from Gogo Reef. Really happy to see a new player on the scene in any event!

This should be interesting! :D Australia has some really cool ancient megafauna.

I think I like the thylacoleo even more than the thylacine! also I didnt know it was the biggest marsupial predator known, I figured something from South America would be bigger.

WOW! I don't get it only because dinosaurs interest me more than prehistoric mammals.

Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

It's a really lovely piece! So these will be cast in PVC, rather than resin?

Im looking at pics of thylacoleo on google, is it thought to have been arboreal? There are alot of reconstructions depicting it on a tree limb or tree stump or coming down a tree.

Yes in PVC. We've already had them manufactured and they'll be available for sale in around a week.

Yes that's right. The claws and powerful front limbs suggest it was well equipped to climb. It may well have ambushed it's prey from above.

Really cool, I really like these! You definitely know what you're doing, with the sculpting. Great job.

I'm planning on getting these two. What do we know about pricing?

Thylacoleo has always been an enigmatic and intriguing animal to me. Looking forward to future possible releases of diprotodon, giant kangaroo, Aussie dinosaurs, and dromornithids!

Pricing will be around the $8 USD mark... we'll have them available in a few days on www.minizoo.com.au with worldwide shipping.

.. and yes we'd love to explore more of the Aussie megafauna and beyond  :)

Excellent, very reasonable pricing! I just hope shipping from Australia isn't too much.

Please post once they are available.

I am absolutely going to get that Thylacoleo. Honestly amazed there's not more figures of it available; only one I can think of is the Yowie toy.

We are very pleased to announce that Southlands figurines are now available worldwide. Price per figure is less than $7 USD. If you order the Thylacine and Thylacoleo the combined cost INCLUDING shipping to the USA is under $23 USD. Other countries and currencies also work out to be very reasonable.

Thanks very much and I hope you enjoy your new figures.

They've apparently sold pretty well for him already. I hope so--I just placed my first order for some in my store!

They will be about $11 CDN (so, roughly equivalent to the AUD price, and allowing for the postage!). And will of course follow the usual postage deals from there.

Small batch to start--because there are several more on the way, so I may as well plan to have future orders soon enough. Plus, you know, I haven't actually seen them in person yet. ;)

I will have both the Thylacoleo and Thylacine! I am super excited to start with this new line!
