Octopus (AAA)
« on: July 20, 2013, 07:14:51 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Octopus (Octopus sp) Cuvier, 1797 of AAA. Total lenght is 115mm.









AAA is famous for do a lot of figures of animal and they were one of the first brands to do replicas of animals and they have done the figures of my childhood. The sculpt, colors, proportions, colors and stand are very accurate. This figure is an amazing replica of this specie . I bought this figure the last week in the store of Sea-Life aquarium (Benalmadena, Spain)   ^-^.

Hey, it's Paul! *gets shot* :D

Nice model and photography, the blue background works well :)

Octopuses have always confused me, which part of the head is the face?

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

The black spots are the eyes. I think that tentacles start to high in this figure  ^-^.

Great walk-around, Jetoar!  :) I wonder how many octopi AAA have made, there must be at least one larger version but I wouldn't wonder if there are still more.

I know that a lot of people would think that bulbous thing must be a huge nose... ;D But of course that's the mantle (and it's behind the head instead of in front of it) containing the intestines, gonads, and so on. Jetoar's first photo shows what we may call a face from the front.

Thanks, that does make sense.
