This is maybe the very first step of the tree of animal life.

I wonder if there's some figurine easily available from the major brands reproducing some sponge, eventually one of the most famous and beautiful, like Euplectella aspergillum, aka Venus Flower Basket.

Vauxia from the Safari Cambrian Life Toob is the only figure of a sponge that I know.

I have this weird, almost-poriferan figure from some kind of Disney set!



Overall, they are more likely to show up as a scenery addition than as a true figure, I would think.

Yes I have seen sponge/coral like creatures as accessories in sea life sets.

Yujin did a coral set with sponges I think.

Here is a link to the set on Ebay. The seller is on spring holiday, most chinese shop are closed during this holiday (till 2 februari) There are some loose figurines on Ebay as well.

Thanks everyone for the asnwers  :)

Looks like the only one that I can hope to find here in Italz is the Safari Cambrian Life toob one, thanks stemturtle.

Hi everyone  :)

Any news about Porozoa figurines in the last three years on the market?

You'd probably be better off looking at aquarium decor models. They don't generally grab the attention of toy makers, except as occasional background pieces.

You always can get this sponge figurine :P

Jokes aside, there are barely any figures of Parazoa except for the character Spongebob Squarepants

The evolution of life kickstarter game, I believe, has some, may be wrong.

There are definitely a number of Ediacaran and Cambrian sessile organisms, so it's very possible.
