Green turtle (Popular de juguetes-Puzzle)
« on: February 12, 2013, 12:42:41 PM »
This is not a figure, It is a puzzle of Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) Linnaeus, 1758 of Popular de juguetes. Totallenght is 430mm. It was released in 1995 and we coul foun some one in Ebay as http://www.ebay.es/itm/Vintage-1990s-Build-a-Life-Like-Sea-Turtle-3D-Jigsaw-Puzzle-Feva-Get-Real-/221187478219?pt=UK_Toys_Jigsaws_RL&hash=item337fcd12cb#ht_500wt_1203  of other brands, but the same puzzle.











Some times, jigsaw puzzles are better than some figures, This puzzle is a good example. The strong points of this puzzle is the coloration and stand. From my point of view, it is a good reply of this animal and it is the best sea turtle of my collection  ^-^. I bought this puzzle 10 years ago in a store of my town  ^-^.

Very nice! :) I have been even thinking about creating a thread for animal cardboard models here (I also made one on the DTF). Some of you might know that I'm a fan of cardboard modelling, there are some phantastic kits available, notably those excellent Birdmobile by Malcolm Topp and the incredible works of Dutch artist Johan Scherft. A few Japanese and Taiwanese models of marine animals are available, too, including several Green Turtle models (including an amazing free model by Kyoichi Shimazaki/Ghost Maker available at Canon Creative Park). Of course these would rather qualify as kits. So I see a kit section could become more and more useful. :)

This is unique :) It looks really good for a cardboard figure.

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....
