This is the Green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) from Nature Techni Colour - Kaiyukan Aquarium, Osaka collection. The figurine measures approximately 6cm long which brings the scale around 1:25. This version also appears to be a repaint of the Nature Techni Colour - Ocean 1 version.

Very nice colour scheme, even though it's definitely a repaint of the Ocean 1 figure - even the rock is exactly the same sculpt, e.g. the front of the Ocean 1 version also has that little cavity just below the tip of the turtle's left flipper and the round cavity we can see in the sixth photo. :)

Beautiful!

I just bought one yesterday, but the color scheme and label are different.  I don't usually buy Turtles unless they are from the Dinotales, but this one really caught my eye.

Do you have a photo of the Ocean 1 version?  TIA!  :)

I don't know if The Mandarin has it - but if not, I do. :) Hmm, I might grab it out and make a walk-around of that one...? I'd still say the sculpts are probably identical, the Ocean 1 version has more contrast but, admittedly, I like the colour of the Kaiyukan Aquarium version here a little more.
