Title: Chondricthyans
Post by: sbell on December 09, 2012, 07:14:49 PM
Well, it is time to start a thread fish base (http://www.fishbase.org/search.php)d thread (you'll see what I did there...)

So I'm going to start from the tiny ones!

These are really small K&M sharks. Some are quite generic, so if anyone has opinions as to the species (or even family) be my guest:
Catshark?

A sharks, rays & chimaera thread is a pleasant duty for this forum.
I'm curious what we will see :).

Yay, that's a great new topic. Sean, I'm envious of your lanternshark. :) The one in the first picture has a first dorsal that is quite forward and the lower lobe of the caudal looks too long for a catshark. My guess would be a triakid but I couldn't figure out which one would fit best, maybe a Triakis (other than semifasciata) itself?

It's a great little figure--it came out of a bouncy ball! If I still worked where I got it I'd see if there were any left (it's easy--you slice the ball a bit and rip it in half!).

At some point I'll get other figures up here. But I just wanted to get this started.

Now that you mentioned they come from bouncy balls and since they're K&M (we sometimes get K&M figures in Germany, too), I should really pay more attention to bouncy balls with animals in them whenever I'm in a museum shop. Who knows, I might have already been in one were they were available! :o Of course I'll have to make sure the kids won't see what I'm doing with the ball at home... ;D ...or, yes, maybe get several of those.

After I brought the lantern shark home (removed from the ball) my son was the one who bought the rest (to be ripped apart). My kids have also torn apart a few turtle and dino balls.

Cool K&M sharks! :)  One question though, is it possible that the Frilled Shark could actually be a six/seven-gilled shark?

I am clinging to that hope my kids would react similarly when I should find them. (okay, chances aren't that bad maybe)! ;D

Oh, that seems like a good suggestion. :) Would make the figure even more interesting since there are several frilled shark  figures around by now.

I realise I have a group photo of (most) of my chondrichthyan figures that I took in April and then forgot to post... well, then... ;D

Some later additions like this years WS Blacktip Reef Shark and the small PV sharks are not in the photo. At the very bottom of the photo are my NekoWorks sharks, all painted. Hmmm, there hasn't been a new Neko release since the Angel Shark, I hope the line isn't retiring... :-\

It has 7 gills, so that limits it.  But after looking at pictures, it probably is a 7-gill, the body isn't anguiliform enough. Which is grand--gives another species to the collection! If only I'd picked up at least one more...

As for getting the balls--they are pretty cheap (we sold them for $2) so you could just get 2 of each!

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 the newer K&M set, too. I bought it mainly because of the Port Jackson Horn Shark and the Sawshark.

Some Safari Ltd. / WS Sealife:

(http://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/230161_1083849534739_6468723_n.jpg)(http://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/226246_1083849454737_7691118_n.jpg)
Cetorhinus maximus (Gunnerus, 1765); Basking Shark. Length 145 mm, scale approx. 1:34 - 1:68. Need to make a newer photo, I guess...

Carcharodon carcharias (Linnaeus, 1758); Great White Shark. Length 180 mm (SL 156 mm), scale approx 1:24 - 1:44. Yes, I know, not the best rendition of a Great White... :-\ which is a bit sad considering that others from the series are actually really good.

(http://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/331617_4048709974397_1341073138_o.jpg)
Carcharhinus melanopterus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1824); Blacktip Reef Shark. Length 142 mm, scale approx. 1:7 - 1:14. "Kevin" is approx. 1:12 - 1:13 scale.

Stegostoma fasciatum (Hermann, 1783); Zebra Shark. Length 122 mm. If it was an adult the scale would be approx. 1:14 - 1:19 but the colour pattern looks like that of a juvenile.

(http://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/265936_2052987122573_3223112_o.jpg)
Carcharhinus leucas (Müller & Henle, 1839); Bull Shark. Length 155 mm, scale approx. 1:12 - 1:22.5. Andreas Köpke is 1:20 scale.

Honestly, the Sawshark was my main reason for getting the K&M toob.

Yes, most of the toob figures are mini versions of larger MBA or WS Sealife figures and the "Grey Reef Shark" is clearly a mini version of the Crocodile Shark. Hmm, the ray's colour looks like a Blue or a Blue-spotted Stingray, Neotrygon kuhlii, but those denticles on the tail and the proportions look more like a rajid. However, I'm not aware of any rajids with blue spots like these.

Oh, this reminds me of another toob shark...

I can't believe I missed that shark!

And it seems ray vss skate causes a lot of issue for many companies--I think because skates are easier (thick tails) but stingrays are more familiar.

Speaking of which, last year was quite the year for cownose rays from Safari (L-R IC, Sea life & GLM lines). Counting the VC toob, that was 4 myliobatids in one season!

And just because it also got missed from the series, Sea Life Manta Ray:

I remember how puzzled I was when the Cownose Ray was announced as IC and WS Sealife! I finally ended up getting both, too, but the WS Sealife was just shortly ago. They are both excellent! :) I just found a store in Germany that sells individual Good Luck Minis (otherwise they are hard to get here, unless you buy a whole box). The IC Blue-spotted stingray is one of the best ray figures I've seen. And the colour pattern matches perfectly, Taeniura lymma has a longitudinal blue stripe along the tail. That's why it's been named Taeniura obviously.

Some time ago I bought this one from a fellow DTF member (looks a little funny from the front):

Squatina cf. californica Ayres, 1859; Pacific Angelshark (Squatiniformes: Squatinidae). PlayVisions. Length 155 mm, scale approx. 1:6 - 1:10.

A little later I got the small PV sharks, these are not really better than the similar sized K&M figures but you can't have enough horn sharks and angel sharks!

And this time it's a Zebra Bullhead Shark, Heterodontus zebra. The rest is, well... :-\

Post by: sbell on December 11, 2012, 01:41:43 PM
I would say the PV is better than the K&M set, but the pain jobs are still kind of poor.  The Angel shark is definitely the highlight in this one.  And I remember that large angel shark--I asked for it too late!

But at least I got the MB Thresher shark when it came available from someone.

And because I was on a ray roll before, a few freshwater friends!

The potamotrygonidae is so ignored, yet they have such beautiful patterns.  These ones are ceramics; there are three different colours but I was only able to get 2:

Made by Klima:
Tiger river ray Potamotrygon tigrina
(http://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-RQgFO72_BFM/UMdyQSyM0mI/AAAAAAAAEbo/ivrhOKuoklI/s400/HPIM6576.jpg)

Spotted river ray Potamotrygon motoro
(http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-tjkBc-h_8VY/UMdyQekysaI/AAAAAAAAEbo/z3oTR6L733E/s400/HPIM6614.jpg)

The other one is sort of P.hystrix-like.

The only other freshwater ray figure I know of is (of course) from Japan--I saw them on JAUCE briefly, but missed out.  It was a set of aquarium-type pets that were apparently giveaways from Hikari (a fish food maker).  It was a P. henlei or P. leopoldi (black with light spots).

The others were other fish and such--and I curse that I didn't get it, if just for the ray.  If anyone ever happens to come across one (well, 2, since you'd probably want one too) PLEASE let me know.

Post by: brontodocus on December 11, 2012, 06:51:42 PM
Yay, and I thought freshwater rays were virtually nonexistent as figures... although, I recall there's a Colorata Himantura of some sort, but I don't know if that's one of those that go into rivers. Hmmm, I never heard of that Hikari set, I guess I would remember if I had seen it so I may be of little help, at least for now, but who knows...

The Colorata is a leopard whipray, Himantura uarnak. Apparently they will go into freshwater.

And since we've mentioned Colorata:

Sharks of the World (original set--many of these were doubled in the box, although I traded several of the doubles away):

Sharks DX Deluxe box set:

Top to bottom, left to right: Whale shark, Basking sharkMegamouth shark, Great white shark, Bull shark, Tiger shark, Frilled shark, Cookie-cutter shark, Goblin shark
These ones are neat--even in the small photos, you can tell that some of these even have a slight dermal-denticle skin texture (it's especially prominent in the mid-water shark figures)!

And finally making a holocephalan appearance, from the Deep Sea Fishes set:
(http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Ng2vWj70uNw/So8TRuqm4aI/AAAAAAAAAbE/iZ_hC0sWwic/s288/HPIM5175.jpg)

Silver (or Ghost) Chimaera.

I do not have the big Deluxe Great White or Manta though, so someone else will have to dig those out. And maybe someday we'll get a Colorata Rays box! Could you imagine a butterfly ray!?
Title: Re: Chondricthyans
Post by: brontodocus on December 11, 2012, 08:58:47 PM
Yes, the textures of the DX sharks are very nice and make the figures appear less glossy. And there's the Himantura! I might still end up getting the older set. I would love to see a butterfly ray in toy form, their body shape is so weird! :)

It's of course hard to say, but the mouth is positioned very anteriorly on the little figure, and the spots appear to be based on the photophores seen in deep sea sharks.
Title: Re: Chondricthyans
Post by: brontodocus on December 12, 2012, 12:41:55 AM
I'd agree, it's more likely an etmopterid. I might grab out my Princeton Field Guide (Compagno, not GSP ;D) and check if it's possible to go any further than family or genus level (although I doubt it, there are many etmopterid species). The enlarged denticles of the Bramble Shark would be much more irregularly distributed. The chocolate brown colour also speaks for a lanternshark.

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.

Those are from a company called FUL, who makes a pretty good set of sea life including sea cucumbers and anemones!

And the weird Basking shark and silver sawfish are from the same set--it was distributed by Play Visions, but isn't one of theirs.

Here's a few of mine that I haven't seen posted yet. :)

An odd collection of minis.  Tentative IDs L-R:  Manta Ray, Great White, Horn Shark, Saw Shark, Skate, Dogfish/Smoothound, Bull Shark, Hammerhead.



Those are from a company called FUL, who makes a pretty good set of sea life including sea cucumbers and anemones!

And the weird Basking shark and silver sawfish are from the same set--it was distributed by Play Visions, but isn't one of theirs.

This figure of basking shark is beutiful. You have a nice colection.

I am learning something in this thread. 1, I don't have enough Neko sharks (I only have the 2 prehistoric ones, and I curse that I did not discover them in time to get the cookie cutter or greenland shark); 2, I have so very few Kaiyodo sharks! Given the number here, it's ridiculous how few I have! And I don't see me being able to fix that anytime soon.

Anyway, a few new additions.

These are stretchy ones made by Club Earth. There are actually 5, but the 5th one (a sawfish) didn't survive my kid's attention. It's boring anyway; the real gems are the last two:

From first to last: Manta ray, Eagle ray (bullnose?); proper dasyatid stingray, probably Atlantic stingray; and finally the Torpedo Ray!  This last one is really the reason to hunt down the set, it`s just so unique (unless there are others out there. Anyone?). And the photos don't do them justice, as they are fairly detailed; it's just too bad that they aren't released as solid figures like their Extinct Animals set.

At least, most of the Kaiyodo sharks are more or less available (okay, the price sometimes is another thing :-\). As for the Neko Works, I haven't seen anything new since the release of the Angelshark early in 2011. While I do hope to see further models I'm not sure if the line will not cease to exist, they seem to have become less regularly available at HLJ, lately. If you plan to get them, maybe you should not wait too long?
On the other hand, even if they may be soft and stretchy, those Club Earth rays are very nice (and I assume, harder to find than Kaiyodo sharks? :'(), I especially like the dasyatid and the Torpedo! :)

One so-so figure is a part of the "Octonauts" cartoon toy line.

Are the Octonauts still around? I don't know of them, but I'd like that ray! I already have a giant ray from Go Diego.

And that other torpedo (or 'hammerhead shark' according to the seller) sure looks like a AAA but I've never ever seen it before. Someone really needs to find a real contact at that company and get a proper list!

That Octonauts set is on Amazon for about $30, and it appears to be fairly common on ebay too, so I guess they are still around.

I agree, a proper AAA list from the company itself would be great!  Who knows what other little known creatures they've made! :o  Do they even have a website, and if not, then how do they distribute their products?

I've never even heard of or seen Octonauts--I can't believe (based on some searches) that those little sets are worth $25. It seems high.

And I think the problem so far with tracking down AAA is its unknown nature--it seems to be a company that does lots of things for lots of different distributors, but doesn't have much of a web presence on its own (or, that every business tries to name itself AAA and it's difficult to sort through them all)

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).

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! :)

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)
(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105660124/HPIM6828.JPG)
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.

I'm trying to be patient about set two--the store I can get them at always gets in toys in advance of Christmas, then starts discounting as Christmas gets closer. So I am hoping to get the set for less--but of course lots of other people know the same thing, meaning that by the time the post-Christmas BIG sale comes up, there's almost nothing left.

I wish their dinosaur figures were worth purchasing. But the sharks will do (the back of the box even mentions a torpedo ray! But they don't have it at the store).

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105660124/IMG_4028.JPG)

As I said, here again are the Lontic sharks, set 2!

As I suspected, the 6th is of course a Great White shark (in name--it's kind of the most basic of the figures).

The Megamouth shark (to the left) is of course the most unique of the figures--other than a few Japanese figures, I don't think one has ever been made. Reason enough to get this figures (until a surprise that I will mention below).

The mottled one is marked as a Mako Shark (probably a shortfin, judging by the fin). The mottling is a little odd--they are normally blue-ish, but the lines may be meant to indicate the effect of light underwater? I know that there are several images online that shoe this effect on the colour.

The thresher shark is neat (not as nice as the Monterey of course). Species-wise it's tough to say. Not a big eye, and given that commons are greenish and pelagics are blue-ish, likely the latter (if only because of the blue stripe--bigeyes are apparently brown!).

Next is a sawfish. It looks like most (again, good Monterey one out there, plus several Japanese ones, etc). But this one is labelled as a Pointed Sawfish (Anoxypristis) which is a first. Too bad they didn't quite get it right--the edge of the saw should be toothless near the skull. I suppose a quick fix could be made with a good, sharp knife...

And finally, a neat little Angel shark. Good luck on the species of this one--although it is labelled "Squatina" (just like the megamouth is labelled "Megachasma pelagios"). Probably the type species Squatina squatina, but then I don't think these are usually meant to be perfect species representations!

Overall, an excellent little set. I'd like to see them branch out even more, to the deep sea and lesser known sharks, but it's a good start! They might not be on par with Safari, but for the equivalent of $2 each, well worth it!

As someone who, as a kid, loved sharks and would have loved to find even one (I couldn't even find a great white!) it makes me happy to finally have a good selection of them in my shelves... ;D

Post by: brontodocus on November 04, 2013, 09:15:42 AM
A nice new Lontic set, congrats, sbell! :) Despite the colouration the Mako looks very good. I was wondering what could make the sawfish an Anocypristis cuspidata, since the rostrum isn't particularly narrow and the tooth count doesn't match (it seems the figure has 15 pairs). But the tail fin's lower lobe seems to be quite pronounced (can't be sure from that angle, though) which could support that it's a Pointed Sawfish. The thresher shark seems to be a bit generic, A. vulpinus and A. pelagicus would have shorter snouts, A. pelagicus has a smaller first dorsal fin, and A. superciliosus would have bigger eyes. The angel shark is a great addition to the set and looks great! 8)

The sawfish is actually labelled "Pointed Sawfish" because, yeah, otherwise, it wouldn't be the first one to come to mind. I think Lontic often aspires to something greater than what it makes. The store has a few others from them--some of the arctic ones--and it's sort of the same thing, grand ideas of what species to make, but not the greatest actual product. At least they label all of their figures, so you know what they are supposed to be. And I'd give them points for trying!

And yet more sharks! Good run these days (although not in stores...) Funny thing, when I was off to purchase the first Lontic set, I explained to my son that if I ever came across a hexanchid shark I would buy it.

Later that evening I came across this set on Jauce:

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/105660124/IMG_4029.JPG)

Which includes Hexanchus. Of course, I found it on ebay a few days later and bought it there--same guy I got the Kaiyodo Ceratopsians from (and free shipping!). There is also a secret figure open-mouth goblin, but I don't pay extra for thing like that (it wasn't offered anyway)

The other 3 are pretty cool as well of course. Another Megamouth, a Frilled Shark (I have a lot of those all of the sudden!) and a close-mouth Goblin shark!

The set is from Takara, and I already have both deep sea fish sets, which included a frilled shark and a close mouth goblin shark (plus, a secret open-mouth goblin).

I expected the sharks to be repeats, but it turns out they are the same poses, but different, smaller sculpts, and the paint is different. Plus, new bases--ball joints at both ends of the peg, so the shark swivels and the base swivels.

But it's really all about the 6-gill shark. I finally have one! Unfortunately, now I need to find room for my new sharks. Space is becoming a bit of a premium...

I thought so too! I think--think--Takara may have made a Megamouth as the secret figure for it's earlier shark set (the one with the sawshark and cookie cutter) but I am not sure. If it was, the figure was likely a little different anyway as they seem to take the time to re-sculpt the figures.

They aren't marked or anything--it almost has the proportions of a roughshark body with little fins. Keep in mind the size (they are in front of mm bars. They are really tiny and meant for bouncy balls, so I'm guessing that they didn't worry about accuracy. But if anyone has a guess that seems to work I'm all for it (bulls are too square at the front, and not nearly so rotund).

They did take the time to make a great little lantern shark though--there is every chance that it represents some other obscure shark species. Just have to figure out what.

Well, it is time to start a thread fish base (http://www.fishbase.org/search.php)d thread (you'll see what I did there...)

So I'm going to start from the tiny ones!

These are really small K&M sharks. Some are quite generic, so if anyone has opinions as to the species (or even family) be my guest:

After I brought the lantern shark home (removed from the ball) my son was the one who bought the rest (to be ripped apart). My kids have also torn apart a few turtle and dino balls.
I am clinging to that hope my kids would react similarly when I should find them. (okay, chances aren't that bad maybe)! ;D
Cool K&M sharks! :)  One question though, is it possible that the Frilled Shark could actually be a six/seven-gilled shark?
Oh, that seems like a good suggestion. :) Would make the figure even more interesting since there are several frilled shark  figures around by now.

I realise I have a group photo of (most) of my chondrichthyan figures that I took in April and then forgot to post... well, then... ;D

Some later additions like this years WS Blacktip Reef Shark and the small PV sharks are not in the photo. At the very bottom of the photo are my NekoWorks sharks, all painted. Hmmm, there hasn't been a new Neko release since the Angel Shark, I hope the line isn't retiring... :-\

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:
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/bd2cmrhww7gfl7g/HPIM7672.jpg)

Second, a whiteip reef shark Trienodon obesus from the Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 5 set
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/xe3cevm1uj2lqbd/HPIM7673.jpg)

This one shouldn't be confused with the Oceanic whiteip shark Carcharhinus longimanus from the Kaiyodo Aquatales series2 set:
(http://dl.dropbox.com/s/i6urux4hgsuo671/HPIM5680.JPG)
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:
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/bvej8uhxzuozre4/HPIM7671.jpg)

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:
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/e3u0q5eofoba6pp/HPIM7675.jpg)

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.

Apparently it is a real place:

http://aquatotto.com/ (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!

(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/bd2cmrhww7gfl7g/HPIM7672.jpg)

Second, a whiteip reef shark Trienodon obesus from the Kaiyodo Capsule Aquarium 5 set
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/xe3cevm1uj2lqbd/HPIM7673.jpg)

This one shouldn't be confused with the Oceanic whiteip shark Carcharhinus longimanus from the Kaiyodo Aquatales series2 set:
(http://dl.dropbox.com/s/i6urux4hgsuo671/HPIM5680.JPG)
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:
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/bvej8uhxzuozre4/HPIM7671.jpg)

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:
(https://dl.dropbox.com/s/e3u0q5eofoba6pp/HPIM7675.jpg)

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.

Very beautieful figurines!!Special congrats for the ray, i prefer saltwater fishes but if i will find this figurine i would add it in my zoo  :)

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.

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 (http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=971.0).

I've seen that ray--from above, it lookks really good. The ventral face is unforunate.

But compared to the other fiugres in that set, it's at least subtle.

As for species, no idea.

Post by: stargatedalek on September 07, 2015, 05:26:40 PM
Hardly my specialty but if I had to guess I'd put my money on a skate rather than a ray. The pointed "tip" of the face and sharply featured anal(?) fins are characteristics that can be found on skates or rays, but are common to all skates (to my knowledge, which is very limited). Combined with the thick body and thorn like projections my money would be on a skate being the inspiration.

The overall body shape is more dasyatid than rajid though. It may be just some sort of made up thing. Or a deepwater ray of some kind.
