Amazing deeps seas. In Spain, we dont see this amazing figures  :(. I would like to have Colorata and Kaiyoodo fish in general but here this is impossible  :(.

We don't see them in Canada...or Europe, or Australia, or anywhere except Japan either. They are generally found through trading and buying online.

Yes, so for any of us it takes great efforts to get these. :-\ The only ones besides current figures by Safari Ltd. that are rarely offered within Europe (probably elsewhere, too?) may be the AAA figures which are also distributed by Animal Planet. I bought six of them boxed and BIN from a German seller:

...but I've not seen them since. But chances might still be there!

Don't forget about these little fellows:   :)


Same species as Brontodocus mentioned previously.

Are those mini versions? Because where did you get those!? Those are great (I try to keep my fishes small).

Ah, no, I didn't forget those, Varanus :) You posted them before on DTF v.1 and I remember them! I like them, too.

Glad you both like them! ^-^

They do appear to be mini versions of those AAA figures, I'd say they're knockoffs, but they're so much smaller.  I purchased them as bin figures several years ago at the Scripps (aka: Birch) Aquarium in San Diego, California.  They were mixed with PVs and other common bin figures.  I haven't been back in there since then, so I have no idea if they still carry them.

It's one of my favourites, too. :) The transparent dome that covers the eyes is so delicate that it is usually lost in sampled specimens and was thus discovered quite recently. Before that it was thought the animal looked like this:

Hey, they are very nice! :) They look very much like mini versions of the Safari Ltd. Anglerfish and Viperfish.

At one time I would have said no, they were in lots of dollar stores. Now, though, they seem to have disappeared from stores so they can be pretty tough (but not impossible) to find.

Nice deep-sea fish collection, OkapiBoy! :)
Oh, that's interesting, you seem to have two different versions of the AAA Viperfish and Footballfish! :o

Great pics. Here are 2 lantern fish. Not labelled. These actually light up when squeezed. At least they used too.
