PostSubject: Walkaround: Yujin Aquarium Fish in Colour series 1 & 2 telescope eye colourways   Wed Feb 18, 2015 5:15 pm

Here are the Series 1 orange and Series 2 panda secret colourways of the demekin goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus) in the Aquarium Fish In Colour/Aquarium Golden Fish series made by Yujin and Takara Tomy A.R.T.S.

Like all of the fish in the series (well, the ones I've seen), the models are extremely well made, lifelike and highly detailed, with meticulously sculpted scales, traslucent fins and gradually intensifying metallic overtones to their multihued paintwork. The figures are 6cm long and comprise both of a transparent support rod, a base with decoration (detachable in the orange demekin's case, permanent in the panda's), and the fish themselves. The support rods on both are slightly bent and their orientation may be altered by rotating them on the base, slightly changing the angle the fish "swim" in.

Telescope eye or demekin goldfish are a large fancy goldfish type bred for enlarged, protuding eyes and, increasingly, a deformed body plan. The fish typically suffer poor eyesight and are prone to injury of the eyes. Their deep and round body shape causes their internal organs to become pushed into the wrong body cavities, and together with the soft and long fins, hampers with the fish's ability to swim. These Yujin versions show a much more moderate type than is popularly bred for these days.


Here's, first, the series 1 orange telescope eye:

Thanks Susanne and Christophe! I agree with you both - about the fish's breeding and Yujin's excellence as a brand. In the case of these models, their realism is nearly painful.
