I bought mine in 2012, too. It was a set of two figures (the other was a Wandering Albatross, Diomedea exulans) and it was quite cheap, US$ 8 or so without shipping. Those Nayab/Lontic figures should not be too expensive since they are inferior in quality (at least regarding the material they are made of) compared to the figures made by the major companies like Schleich, Safari Ltd, CollectA, Papo, or Bullyland. $100 for such a set would be outrageous. :o

A seller can ask whatever they like--it's all a matter of if someone will pay (and no one should).

I\m pretty sure that I saw this figure sold in a aset of 'arctic' animals at a local store last year, and I expect they will be there again.

Don't want to go off-topic, but I made a Blainville's beaked whale myself along with other cetaceans. If anyone would like one, I'll try to make casts.
