Great White Shark, 2016 version (Safari Ltd Wild Safari Sealife)
« on: September 10, 2016, 10:32:58 PM »
Yawn... We don't really need yet another Great White Shark figure... or do we? :)) Here comes the Safari Ltd Wild Safari Sealife Great White Shark, Carcharodon carcharias (Linnaeus, 1758); item No. 200729, new for 2016. This is an entirely new sculpt and so much better than the old version (No. 275029) which still remains in production, only with a different paint job. The new sculpt is elegant, more detailed and a lot better proportioned, especially the head. Teeth could have been a little less blunt for my taste, though, but it may be due to child safety. It may be one of the best Great White Shark toy figures by a major company yet. Total length (TL) of the figure is 167 mm so the scale is between approx. 1:24 and 1:35 for a mature individual. The human figure (paleontologist from the Tamiya Dinosaur Diorama series) is approx. 1:35 scale. And of course humans are a much greater threat to Great Whites than vice versa and therefore the species is in decline, resulting in IUCN listing it as "Vulnerable".

I have to agree--as far as shark figures go, I thought that another Great White was completely unnecessary (especially since CollectA had only recently made such a great, dynamic, and big figure that set the bar pretty high).

But this one is fintastic (yes, I did that). Along wth the other Safari sharks this year, they even improved the skin 'texture'.

I too wish it didn't have Globidens teeth. But It still is a great figure of the popular species.

Does anybody have a comparison photo of all three Safari Great White Sharks? This, the older version, and the Monterey Bay version?

Perfect! Thank you! I'm thinking of having the MBA version stand in as a C. megalodon next to my other figures. This is helps the comparison shopper in me. :)
