Common Waterflea (Kaiyodo - Night Aqua Museum)
« on: February 01, 2013, 03:25:11 PM »
Walk-around of the Takara Kaiyodo Night Aqua Museum (technically not a bottlecap series but they are also known under the name "Bright Aquatales" and Aquatales are normally bottlecap figures) No. 3 Common Water Flea, Daphnia pulex (Leydig, 1860). Length 33 mm, scale approx. 1:0.1. The Night Aqua Museum figures have a base with a black light LED powered by three button cells, the effect is amazing. I thought my entire set was defective due to battery leakage (I bought them in 2011 but they were unopened and the batteries were already inside the figure bases, everything was heavily corroded :-[) but it seems at least this one works again! :D

Thanks, Jetoar, Ana & Adam! :) The figure is made of different materials, by the way, the carapace is made of a softer plastic than the internal organs. The latter are probably as detailed as is possible for such a small figure.

Thanks, Helge! :) I'm not sure anymore but I may have shown one or two photos of it at the Dinosaur Toy Forum Version 1. But that was of course before I knew that the black light LED is still working.

Kaiyodo Night Aqua Museum Common Waterflea images are back... Phew, I'm not 100% sure but it seems during the last few days I've restored all images in all walk-arounds I've ever made. Sorry for any inconvenience but it seems everything is back to normal now. :)

I'm glad the images are back :). It's still one of my favourite walk arounds.

Now go and re-arrange the DTF pics as well ;D! ..... just joking ;).

Many thanks, Helge! :) Well, fixing the walk-arounds was one thing, at least all photos were arranged in special walk-around albums and in their correct order. Photos from other posts, either here or on the DTF are usually scattered around multiple albums without any real system. Unfortunately I can't see which photo was originally posted so restoring those will probably not be possible. Because if that wasn't the problem I'd probably go and try to restore everything.
