A beautiful figure of the basking shark, a large filter feeder shark. I believe it is a Nayab (Lontic?) figure.

It is a Lontic/Nayab. I have the set of 12. The local store that had the two box sets last year just recently put their remainder stock back out.

Wonderful! :) Nayab surely can make some good sharks and this seems to be one of their best.

Are these sharks sold it sets of four? When I was at Monterey Bay, CA several of the touristy shops had these nice shark figures, including what I remember as this one. Each box set had four species (incl the six gill shark if I remember correctly). I looked all over the box but I'd be darned if I could find a company name.
The back of the boxes illustrated several marine animals that the stores didn't sell, including a couple crustaceans which, if made in the same quality as the sharks, would've been nice!

I found them in box sets of 6, but Lontic/Nayab is a company that likely shows up in a variety of ways.
One set is this:


The other is this:

Yes, those are the figures (but I think I saw them in sets of 4, now I cant remember). I saw them in a few tourist shops along Cannery Row in Monterey Bay (they may have been sold at the Aquarium too I cant remember).

Im happy you have them; when I saw them Sean you were the first person to come to mind haha.

I'm hopeful that this year brings some new Lontic figures to the store--the company seems to order form whoever supplies them, and they bring in lots of toys for the holiday season--here's hoping for more of the unusual marine sets! They had the arctic sets and some dinos last year as well. With any luck, rays and eels, oh my!
