sorry it took so long, here they are!

"Giant Anglerfish" (Chap Mei ~ Animal Planet)
http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1132.0






piranhadon (fictional, from 2005 King Kong)
not sure if this should really count, but I often use it as a "generic dragonfish like thing"
the head is hard plastic and the rest is soft flexible rubber

Star, those are Chap Mei Viperfish, not sure on species though. Vipers and Dragons can be differentiated by the lures location, Vipers lures are on the dorsal fin, Dragons lures are on the chin.

Also, My Deep-sea fish. Plus a lonely Isopod.

It may look like the modern Mitsukirina but many specimens are found in relatively shallow waters, even around dinosaur fossils. But since there aren't any  'easy to find' goblin shark models, just Japanese figures (so many Japanese figures...) it works fine!

I was kinda hoping CollectA would make one for 2017, but not yet...

Given the ranges of sharks, I would expect Safari to come through with a few deep sea sharks first. Could you image a life size Cigar Shark or Lantern Shark in the Incredible Creatures line?

Or an IC Frilled Shark? That'd be pretty cool. There needs to be more deep sea shark figures.

Agreed, there really do need to be more--save for a couple frilled sharks, almost all deep-water sharks are Japanese figures, and either hard to find or expensive (or both!).

And I was thinking of cigar and lantern sharks, because they could almost be full size in the IC line--but even a 1/4 size Frilled would be fantastic (maybe Favorite will do one as a soft vinyl? Still Japanese though...)

I have thought to make more shark species overall deep sea species as Hexanchids and some members of Somniosids  ^-^.

How about a bramble shark or oxynotid rough shark? Now those are weird and obscure!
