Rock Lobster (AAA)
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:30:58 AM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Rock Lobster ( Panulirus sp ) White, 1847 of AAA. Total lenght is 300mm.(153 mm and a little over 300 mm if antennae are included).















AAA is famous for do a lot of figures of animal and they were one of the first brands to do replies of animals and they have done the figures of my childhood. The sculpt, colors, proportions, colors and stand are very accurate but the best point are the details of its carapace. This figure is an amazing reply of this specie . My mother bought it to me 16 years ago in the store of Sea-Life aquarium (Benalmadena, Spain) the same day that star fish  ^-^.

A rather smallish but well made rock lobster figure! :) And, yes, it's exactly the same as I have. I wonder if this is the only rock lobster AAA did? A bigger specimen would have been easy to obtain, this one hasn't even market size! :o ;D

Yes, I think that they could do a big version of this figure, but this size is not bad and it is so cute  and the details are very nice ^-^.
