I've had these a long time. Can't recall the company. It came with some other figures like a vampire squid and football fish. Not done that well. These I've never seen duplicated.

I look forward to when these are available from the Canadian distributor. Everything here seems to move in a weird slow motion...

Does the Safari Ltd tube come with documentation naming the individual species?

The Dragonfish looks great and it seems the Humpback Anglerfish is even better than the Kaiyodo Atlas Anima version! :)

Oddly and unfortunately, the toob did not come with any information about the figures, unlike the prehistoric sharks and crocs :(

That was part of an initiative by Safari to be environmentally conscious (and I'm sure spend less on production). Even toobs that have them now will not in future runs. However, there is info on their website (but I will admit it is nowhere near as informative or interesting as on the crocs or sharks toobs, since I helped ith the text on those too!).

I was wondering why the prehistoric crocs tube had an info sheet and the sharks didn't... in other news, I guess the sharks sell better than the crocs, given that they were already out of stock on sharks with info sheets but still had the crocs with the info sheets. It's too bad, because I was really happy with the croc info, especially since they gave "Special thanks to" but then failed to thank anyone.  :)

The info sheet that came with my prehistoric shark toob says “special thanks to the T.rex Discovery Centre, Eastend, Saskatchewan.”  Forum member Sbell, who was the museum director there at the time, was Safari’s advisor. He should also be credited as advisor for the Prehistoric Crocodiles Toob, although I do not have that info sheet. In addition to the labels, Safari marks the identification on the bottom of their figures.

That's me! Yeah, they made an error with the crocs sheet. The shark sheet was done right though!  Online, there is a link to the Trex site, but honestly, since they let 'restructured their core purpose' it isn't worth visiting (the site I mean. The place is alright even if it will never achieve what I had hoped for it).

Don't forget about these little fellows:   :)


Same species as Brontodocus mentioned previously.

I very much so love these figures! Been looking for them for a long time. Would you been interested in a trade at all??

[in addition to some already shown here] I have some Chap-Mei deep sea fish, no species assigned to them and most are somewhat nonsensical, but a few are not half bad

How big are they? I'd love to see them!
