Wow - that's a nice Flying Fish :D!
This time the translucent Invicta stand looks like it's made for this figure :) ... looks as it had exactly the same colour as the wing-like fins.

Nice catch, Brontodocus ;)  ;)
sorry...

What an undeniably cute figure (and one that's realistic and detailed, too  :)) )

I agree, the Invicta stand looks really nice and displays the figure well (probably due to matching those spectacular [translucent?  ^-^ ] fins).  :D

Thanks all! :) Yes, the pectorals and pelvics are indeed translucent - and they are quite rigid, too (I have the AAA Flying Fish which is nice but the floppy fins of that one somehow devalue it a little)! :) The figure wasn't easily placed on the Invicta stand and fell down quite often... :-\
