Great white shark - 2004 (Schleich - Sea Life)
« on: January 28, 2013, 05:32:14 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Great white shark ( Carcharodon carcharias ) Linnaeus, 1758 of Schleich - Sea Life. Total lenght is 175 mm. This figure was relased in 2004 and it was retired.













Schleich released in 2004 another line of sea animals out scale, but they have a great collection of sea animals that currently, they are retired. This figure was one of the fisrt of this line and hammerhead shark was one of the last. I think that this figure is a great reply of this animal, better than the version of 1998. Sculpture, stand and details are very nice but the color is not the correct. I think that currently it is a beautiful and great figure but if it have another color, would be better it. Collecta white shark is very similar that this but with open mouth. I bought this figure a store in Cadiz( Spain ) in 2004.

I have that one, too. :) While it's maybe not the most accurate Great White Shark figure it has a lot of character. I agree, the paintjob is probably the weakest part of this figure. But the sculpt is quite good. Its rostrum is so pointed (even for a lamnid) that it always reminds me of a porbeagle.

Yes, I think the same that you friend, It reminds a porbeagle , but I like the details of the theets out its mouth and it is the first male shark of this brand ( they have done diffrente gender) ^-^.
