Quote from: brontodocus on February 01, 2013, 08:28:34 AMWhaaat? There's a figure of a tardigrade??? This was one figure I desperately wanted to have. A few years before I started collecting I've seen the figure on ebay but didn't buy it. When I learned more about Kaiyodo lines I always thought why can't I find that water bear figure anymore? Eventually I even thought it was just my imagination but then a whole set came up! This one is easily identifiable to genus level, it's an Echiniscus sp., one of the armoured Heterotardigrada.
