The Neko Works sharks could be found here

That link includes the discontinued models. I only have the Hybodus and Stethacanthus myself. It appears that they claim that the figures will be available within 4-6 weeks, but I haven't seen them in stock for a very long time.

Up from the depths...some new figures.

I suppose I could also list the new ones from CollectA but the new Japanese figures are so much more exciting:

First up, from the Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 3 set, a Bronze Whaler/Copper Shark/Narrowtooth shark, Carcharhinus brachyurus:


Second, a whiteip reef shark Trienodon obesus from the Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 5 set


This one shouldn't be confused with the Oceanic whiteip shark Carcharhinus longimanus from the Kaiyodo Aquatales series2 set:

Not that they look anything alike--but the names are of course similar, and sellers don't always know or differentiate. Which may be why I never noticed the whitetip reef shark until I bought it.

And just because I don't want to leave it out, even though it's on this thread somewhere, the sandtiger shark Carcharias taurusfrom Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 7:


And finally, one of my newest treasures, a giveaway from Hikari (aquarium food company--no idea who made it), and the first legitimately toy-like or figure-like potamotrygonid:


As I've said elsewhere I'm pretty sure this one is meant to be Potamtrygon henlei given the spot pattern. The full set was odd--many usual aquarium suspects (cory cat, redtail cat, clown loach, red-ear slider turtle, some other fish that clearly didn't get my attention!) but this was the only one I felt the need to get (the seller had the whole set on offer, individually, but I decided not to press my luck with it ;) I didn't even have any competing bids!).

EDIT 1--I just found out the ray is supposed to be the Polka Dot Stingray, Potamotrygon leopoldi. I still don't agree.
EDIT 2--I just found the list of most of the Hikari figures in case anyone wants go crazy trying to find them: Polka Dot Stingray, Red Tail Catfish, Imperial Zebra Pleco, Clown Loach, juvenile box fish, albino Axolotl. I'm pretty sure there is a red-eared slider turtle and a coryadoras cat as well.

 :D Beautiful Kaiyodo sharks! I had to get them too.

Hm, "Aqua Totto Gifu"? What is this - an Italian version?
Originally the Sand Tiger is from the "Shinagawa Aquarium" set

Apparently it is a real place:

http://aquatotto.com/

Which is starting to make sense--there are figures that have popped up in different sets, perhaps the bottlecaps change depending on the venue selling them? Mine came with a Capsule Aquarium pamphlet, implying a vending machine--so it is possible that they make different caps.

Also, I need to visit this aquarium--it is apparently a freshwater-focused one!

Here is Atlanta we have a good aquarium but if you want a good freshwater one, you should try the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga! :)

It is a really nice figure, very detailed (hard to see on a black figure...). I'll do a walkaround of it at some point.

It looks like a nice tiger shark figure. For some reason, I didn't immediately order one from Brett so now I have to wait for the next order to get mine.

I'm quite happy with it, too (although we've seen Animatales with less conspicuous seams before). The paint job looks so much more convincing than that of any other Tiger Shark figure I know. :)

And talking about Tiger Shark figures, it's interesting how OkapiBoy's CollectA version apparently has fewer and a little darker, more contrasting stripes than mine from the walk-around.

While I recognise most of them, could you add figure captions to your post? I guess there are many people who don't know all of these figures and your post (like those in the other threads) will be a lot more informative if you add information about which figures we are seeing here. :)
