Human figure (Minimen Andreas Köpke) is 1:20 scale. Here's the figure at Safari Ltd.: http://safariltd.shptron.com/p/wild-safari%C2%AE-sea-life-bull-shark

sorry to resurrect this old thread but I just got the Safari Bull Shark and it's a nice sculpt but it's painted oddly.  It has a clearish blue streak of paint along each side of the body from gills to tail.  What's the reason for that?

Mine has a bit of a fade of the taupe to grey, but I wouldn't call it a blue streak. It's not uncommon for the paint jobs on Safari figures to get less...dedicated...after the initial release. It's been out for a while so if it was purchased recently there's probably less attention to the detail for it.

I see...thanks.  It is newly purchased.  Well i'm going to have to repaint that area somehow, it looks weird with these faint blue glossy streaks on its sides, totally unrealistic.   I like the sculpt though.
