The only one I own is the MBA figure, ended up voting for the Schleich 2018 figure. If I had to rank them based off my own taste

1. Schleich 2018
2. Safari ltd-2016
3. MBA
4. Schleich 2013
5.Collecta 2015.

I think the Papo one should have been included, I'd rank it the highest, slightly above the Schleich 2018.

Iíve always been partial to the MBA figure.

Didn't really like the goblin shark nose syndrome and is a little too big to scale with any really good killer whales figures

The Papo one is a little bit iffy for me with the really tiny pelvic fins and off putting claspers

I always have chosen the Safari one but I finally decided by Schleich 2018 one, I would like the mouth a bit more closed (such as in Schleich 2013), but the Schleich 2018 is the only one of all great white sharks of any brands to have the Lorenzini ampullae sculpted!!!! so I chosen this one finally for my collection.

Yeah, I always found the feature a bit weird.

CollectA pulled it off better with the extended nose when attacking but has the inferior colour scheme of all

And while it made some improvements with the snout, the rest of the face felt a little off to me. Kinda hard to pinpoint precisely didn't work for me.

I just noticed that the gills are a little small on the collectA one
