Like she said, tyrantqueen has already done a walk-around of the more realistically coloured version here (http://www.animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,289.0.html). But who knows, we have seen so many alternate versions of figures here lately, you might have something entirely different in the end. :)
Have you seen that the shark tyrantqueen posted went for $45.50? :o

The figure is not the same that Tyrantqueen figure because my figure have tongue, the legs are in other posistion, it was made in two pieces and the position of this head is decliner than version of Tyrantqueen. The shark is more bigger than my version of great white shark.  It is twice size bigger than my version  ^-^.

Check it out! ig88droid has lots of the rare Colorata zoo animals for auction (http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=&_ipg=200&_sop=10&_osacat=1335&_trkparms=65%253A10%257C66%253A2%257C39%253A1&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEFSRCHX%3ASRCH&_catref=1&_ssn=ig88droid&_sc=1&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313&_nkw=colorata&_sacat=1335&_from=R40)

Apparently it's the Ueno zoo set, very limited, long-discontinued--includes the fantastic Aye-Aye, Okapi, Pygmy hippo, and many others!

Plus the start prices are quite low. And it appears that he has the full 13 figures!

1970 Penn Plax CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON Aquarium Ornament AERATER

I didn't think that this was worth much but as I researched it I found out that some Creature Collectors consider this one of the Holy Grails of Creature Collectables.

The biggest surprise to me (other than the $100 asking price!) is that, somehow, the seller got hold of my figure and is selling it...or he poached my photo off the web. Jerk. Did the same thing with the colorata 'indonesian' coelacanth and arapaima. I guess it's time to start properly watermarking everything correctly.

It has been ended but I can still see it: Yes, that would be your ruler (and your background and of course your photo), Sean! >:( Apparently the seller is a frequent reader of our forum, too (read below for other examples). Perhaps also because it's a continuously growing resource of photos made by collectors? But when somebody makes a living by selling figures, putting serious collectors off isn't good for her or his reputation. Not only will the photographer most likely never buy anything from such a seller but this impudent disrespect of other people's intellectual property may discourage others to buy, too.

Other current examples by the same seller:

I'm curious about how long these photos will remain in the listings. ???

I've noticed the unpermitted usage of my photos months ago and I had been thinking about asking the seller to remove my photos. However, I think it's pointless to start a conversation with such a person because commercial usage of other people's intellectual property without permission seldom happens unintentionally. To make it clear: who ever looks at my walk-arounds, feel free to copy everything you like to your harddisk or share with others as much and as often as you like. But do not use any of it commercially without my permission and/or pretend it was your intellectual property instead of mine. I assume other members who contribute to our forum would think the same about their photography. Furthermore, frequent unpermitted usage of photos made by our members may discourage them from further contributing here, so it is something we can't simply ignore. And yes, Sean, watermarking your photos may help a little (against all but the most brazen ones, see the incident with the Kitan Club Japanese Toad >:( ) but of course it takes additional time.
Without watermarking I would have published still more walk-arounds than I did (I have lots of photos ready for another 20 or so walk-arounds) but the additional time needed to watermark the pictures somehow slows me down. :-\

Edit: And before I forget, of course I have copies of the current state of those abovementioned four listings on my harddisk. Just in case.

I actually did contact the seller, and requested either attribution or removal. As far as I know, he's opting for removal. But it turns out a tersely (but not rudely) worded message should be enough. Plus, the reminder that I could just contact ebay itself. One of my main issues? That a buyer wouldn't be getting what they see because it's mine, and I'm not selling it, which makes the sale dishonest (unless the seller states specifically the the image is a stock photo).

At least good to know he does not ignore copyright claims, so he removed his listing with the Asian Arowana as a reaction to your request then? However, he should not have used any other person's photos in his auctions in the first place.

No, but while I appreciate that we have quite a few Daphnia pulex figures now, Leptodora as a predatory cladoceran (and being the largest one) makes it really special (at least for me, in our department the phenotypic plasticity of Daphnia in the presence of predator kairomones is a major research topic and Leptodora kindtii has also been used as a test predator).

If it's the mid-90s one, yes, quite rare. But they did re-release one later, so it's not a completely unusual figure for all but the collecting completists.

Never seen this before. Anyone know the species? Doesn't look like a North American species.

That's...a less than stellar looking figure? Likely a red squirrel model with a patagium added after. I can't recall seeing images of one that looks like that--the head seems too foxy.

I was thinking if this was possibly meant to represent a giant flying squirrel, Petaurista petaurista, since it's so skinny looking and has a very slender tail. The head looks a bit off, though.

A must-have! The price is okay. If I didn't have it already I would get it now.
Unfortunately using the 'See other items' button doesn't work for me :( .... no results.
I've been having this problem with some other sellers too throughout the last months and I don't know why ???.

The “see other items” button works for me. 
This seller, sylvian113, does not list other animals besides the salamander right now.

I would want the piranha, so sure--you have the arthropods (+, I guess, two others? But I really like that octopus...) I'll take the others. Probably cheaper to ship to me than from the buyer anyway, what the $15+$5.77 to Canada.

PM me for any details!

Perhaps we could split it three ways? I was interested in the piranha but the lionfish is my real goal out of these.

*edit* Already sold, I hope it was you guys and not someone we don't know. (If it was you guys I can't wait to see some more detailed pics).

I want to say that the Smithsonian Hidden Kingdom line was discontinued around 1999-2000, possibly even earlier (alongside the Tennessee Aquarium Salamander line). They were were still widely available for a long time after that; my guess is that they were quite expensive for a market that wasn't quite ready for a high-end replica like these. As for value, I couldn't say. They aren't common, but there should be lots out there, it's jsut a matter of finding them!

Beetle Guy can probably elaborate better as to how rare it is. That particular seller tends to label everything as rare and is a little more expensive than others (but with free shipping). I think nowadays those large Sega beetles are not common and pop up now and then on the Japanese auctions (they are rare on eBay). I actually don't have that figure yet but now that I have been exploring Sega more recently, I might pursue it...although even for me, it's hard to justify a high price for a commonly-made species.

[I should point out, I have actually worked directly one-on-one with that seller for years now and he treats his regulars very very well, with frequent discounts and freebies]
Title: Re: New on Ebay
Post by: Beetle guy on January 02, 2018, 09:29:25 AM
I know the Ebay- seller as well, he's very kind and indeed treats regulars well. He sometimes sought after real hard to find stuff for me and I have been buying frequently from him over the years now.

The seller has some items for sale that are really overpriced though, like the (recent) F-toys beetles and the Tomy Takara ones.

This Megasoma elephas is rather expensive as well, especially since it seems to be damaged (paint). It is rare like most of the Sega big beetles for they were released  more than ten yeras ago.
They pop-up on Yahoo-Auctions now and then.

Keep in mind that mostly cheaper ones will end up expensive as well due to the Buyee (or other buying services) fees and shipping though that counts also for the F-toys beetles of course.

The Sega elephant beetle appears in groups/lots of beetle figurines now and then. And I could advice to wait for that.  I will do a walkaround on this one later this day.

If anyone's interested, I found yet another AAA mantis shrimp, although once again the price is far too high for my tastes and the shipping is outrageous! But maybe someone here will snatch it up  :) https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Retired-RARE-AAA-Huge-mantis-shrimp-crab-PVC-Figure-Figurine-Model/163040273517?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D40972%26meid%3D16885d14ed244f01b1736e45a7b8cedb%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26sd%3D152899619914%26itm%3D163040273517&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850

It's still the same seller. So buyer beware (based on Star's review...)

It wasn't a review (i.e. walkaround), I think it was more a warning under the Feedback Thread.

That's the one--I should have said seller review. Most of his stuff is far more expensive than normal...and in this case, Star's mantis shrimp arrived with degrading plastic. When she inquired, she was met with a 'meh'.

Looks like that tardigrade is in there for the Sacred Order of Tardegrade Collectors. Have these received the walk-around treatment yet?

It is indeed a series of strange animals...and definitely the biggest tardigrade model! I think...

I also believe that they were discussed somewhere around here, but not sure when.

I could have sworn @brontodocus did a walkaround of the tardigrade, but I cannot find it in the Other/Miscellaneous section. I have it (of course) and could do a walkaround if so desired. I have all my tardigrades (4 of them) in the Blaine's Bug of the Day thread.

Wow, I'd forgotten I'd done that...and that something happened with Dropbox, so most of my old photos are gone...I will see if I can find those ones again.
