Not much to photograph with this figure, as its a Starfish.

Might even be life sized

Looks like it has a tattoo. :))

Wonder what genus it is, any starfish people reading?

From shape, texture, colour and the fact of being the most common and best known starfish in the world with difference, I would say it's Asterias rubens.

Isidro, your ID makes perfect sense. It helps that this species can be orange or purple (the two colors Safari sold it under). Safari is not always good about marketing things at the species level, but they are often the most common or familiar representative.

The common starfish, yep, makes sense!
