:D Cute! I want that one, too.

It's not being offered too often :-\.

Much like the Animatales giant salamander, it's probably not the best representation, but it likely is the first. And it really did take me forever to come across one for a decent price (again, like the giant salamander).

It's fairly small, about 8 cm. :)

What an awesome model and awesome paint work Martin Garratt did (could it be that painting the diver was actually more difficult than painting the shark itself?). :) And it's nice to see that he also painted ampullae of Lorenzini around the shark's mouth. The wide lateral keel on the tail peduncle looks very good. And regarding the diver as a scale figure, a Great White Shark of that size might probably have a proportionally smaller head (which the model obviously has) and would certainly be a female - and there are no claspers on the pelvic fins of this one. The overall proportions are absolutely phantastic! :)

Looking a third time, I agree; the eyes also look way to big to be bramble. :)

Here's a new one:

A curious little Zebra Shark figure with no labeling.  The large hole on its belly suggests it's meant to be a pencil topper.

As for pictures, it's going to take me some time...it turns out i have 151 different figures of living chondricthyans. I probably won't take group shots though--I already have individual ones, but it takes forever to put them up.
And that's 50 more than what I have in my photo (which combines extant and extinct ones). So it may be hard to find a neutral background for getting all of them into one photo, anyways. I did this group shot in spring because I bought larger boxes for my chondrichthyan figures and before i stowed them away (which often means not seeing them in a while) I took the picture.

Yeah, there is that too--I would need quite the wide-angle lens in order to fit everything. And considering how tiny some of them are, it wouldn't be very clear anyway.

And since I'm at it, more K&M sharks!

First, shark toob:


In order of appearance, from top to bottom:
Bull shark, Lemon shark, Leopard shark, Blue Shark, Japanese Sawshark (yes, a true sawSHARK), Zebra shark, Blacktip Reef Shark, Whale Shark, Hammerhead shark, Great White shark, Port Jackson horn shark, Tiger shark

These sharks are...okay. The sawshark is a good one, but the overall quality of this set is characteristic of most of K&M (=Wild Republic) these days--bad paint, bad sculpts, little creativity.

Compare to an older set from their heyday (~1998-2002):

The Exotic Sharks set (I only have a few of these still--I kept the rarest ones!):


From top to bottom:
Hammerhead shark, Whale shark, Swell shark, Caribbean reef shark, Lemon shark, Great white shark.

These were bin figures, but were great sculpts, great paint, and very dynamic. I only have the Swell and Reef shark now (I have pictures of everything I've had though!) and they are quite hard to find now as well.

 I have some figures of this collection, I will share images of my collection  ^-^.

Wow, the older set is a dream, i never know the carribian reef shark before, but now i will search for this phantastic shark :) :)

Reviving a thread time!

New sharks from Lontic (=Nayab)

EDIT--my photo isn't working. I'll get it here soon
RE_EDIT I think it works now!

It's one of two sets (I had to choose). This one has a zebra shark, wobbegon, frilled shark, whale shark, basking shark and hammerhead shark.

The other set is  megamouth, thresher, striped blue shark (well, look-alike--is there another requiem shark it could be? Shaped like blue shark, faint vertical bars like a tiger shark or something), angel shark, sawshark (really nice one) and a sixth--probably a white or other lamnid shark. I don't have any scale in there, but they are about 12-15cm long.

Yay, and an excellent choice of species! :) The wobbegong may be a little green but judging from the colour pattern it's apparently another Orectolobus maculatus, so the same species as the retired Schleich one!
