Walk-around of the Safari Ltd. Incredible Creatures Weedy Seadragon, Phyllopteryx taeniolatus (Lacépède, 1804). Length is 213 mm, scale approx. 1:1.4 - 1:2.1. The tail is bendable (compare photos 3, 4, and 5). This figure was retired previously but it's going to be released again in 2013. Here is the link to the figure at Safari Ltd.: http://safariltd.shptron.com/p/weedy-seadragon

Thanks, Jetoar! :) Yes, they are almost identical in size, the length difference is just 5 mm.

Safari Ltd confirmed on Facebook that the figure is the same version as before and that "it is brought back due to popular demand."

Hmmm, it wasn't retired for that long but now that we know it's been brought back due to popular demand... makes me think: Wouldn't it be cool to bring back the entire Vanishing Wild Collection, Smithsonian Collection, and Tennessee Aquarium Collection by, ahem, popular demand? ;D
