Walk-around of the Bullyland Animal World Edible Snail (or Burgundy, Vineyard, or Roman Snail), Helix pomatia Linnaeus, 1758. Body length is approx. 90 mm and the shell is approx. 39 mm high and 39 mm wide, so the scale is 1:1. Despite being a figure that's been around for several years it's still in production.
Here is a link to it at Bullyland's website: http://www.bullyland.de/index.php?id=798&L=1

Thanks, Jetoar! :) I can't believe it took me so long to finally buy one since it's representing an animal quite common nearby.

Got one of this just this afternoon, it is a very nice model and actually I expcted it to be a bit smaller, looks like real scale and it is damn realistic. The only disappointing particular is the painting of the eyes, way too big black dots that give to the image a neatly cartoonish appearance. Will try to fix this with some paint by myself, it would be first time.

Curious enough, while on the website it is called "Edible Snail" that is one of the common names of the Helix pomatia, on the paper catalogue that I got in the shop it is called Vineyard Snail, i.e. Cernuella virgata, but clearly the model is not of that species.

Sorry for being late... :-\ I think this may be a translation issue. Bullyland is a German brand and the German vernacular name for H. pomatia is "Weinbergschnecke" which literally translates into "Vineyard Snail", although the English vernacular name "Edible Snail" may be more common.

Anyways, hey, the photos are back in this walk-around. :)
