Tiger Shark (Safari - Monterey Bay Aquarium Collection)
« on: January 20, 2013, 08:00:38 PM »
This is a review of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Collection's Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier), produced by Safari.  It is 21 cm in length, about 1:20 scale.  It is one of the best, if not the best, Tiger Shark figures on the market.

Definitely a great Tiger Shark figure, and my favourite representative of the species! :) The characteristic truncate snout is often enough ignored in toys but this one has it.

Thank you both!

Your figure is of hard plastic or soft plastic?

Mine is soft plastic, much more flexible than some others from this collection.

Mine is quite flexible, too. But years ago, when the MBA collection was distributed by Schleich in Germany, I've seen this figure in a toy store and it felt quite rigid. I have two versions of the big Humpback Whale, one of them is very hard while the other one is softer. There is a considerable variation in softness among the MBA figures, in my collection the softest is the Giant Squid.

All figures of MBA of my collection are hard plastic  ^-^.
