The new Aquameridian figures are a feast for the eyes, as detailed and beautiful as the best similar sized Japanese gashapon figures. All figures come with the same 37*37 mm base with LED lighting and for each individual figures there are three different adhesive labels with the vernacular name (either in English, Japanese, or Chinese) and the scientific name. This is a walk-around of the Part 1 Humphead Wrasse or Napoleon Fish, Cheilinus undulatus Rüppell, 1835. This species is the largest known member of the Labridae or wrasses, attaining up to 2.29 m total length (TL, i.e.: including the caudal fin). Due to overfishing it has been listed "Endangered" by IUCN. The length of the adult figure is approx. 61 mm standard length (SL, i.e. without caudal fin) and approx. 72 mm total length (TL), so the scale for the adult would be between 1:9 and 1:37. The human figures are approx. 1:32 - 1:35 scale (diver from Safari Ltd Coral Reef Toob) and 1:35 scale (paleontologist from the Tamiya Dinosaur Diorama series). The juvenile figure is 19 mm SL and 23 mm TL, respectively.

Many thanks, Helge & The Mandarin! :) I've just checked my totally ridiculous waste of time of an Excel table - it's funny that the Kitan Club / Nature Techni Colour Ocean 1 Humphead Wrasse (which has a similarly detailed paint job) is exactly the same length at 72 mm! ;D
