So here's something neat--a way to know exactly what is in the Yujin Freshwater Fish series!

This is apparently the full line--every release, every secret and special! And the price isn't totally unreasonable, considering that it is a complete collection all in one go. And everything still in original package, apparently.

I especially appreciate the list of models--lets us know what came with what set. It would have been nice of there were images of everything, since it can be more difficult to guess what paint scheme is from a first release, second release or box set (some, like the Arowanas, are especially difficult to tell).

And if someone does get it...they should create the complete catalogue! Then we'll have a complete reference!

150€ for teh wholse series isn't indeed an unfair price. I would love to have 150 to spend just right now drunken

If I could justify the expense, I would be really tempted as well...although we'll see what it actually sells for--the one figure alone (the cherry salmon x char hybrid on its own usually costs almost that much!)

Hey, fun update on one of the early posts--so the Paradise fish was listed by Yujin as Macropodus chinensis. It turns out that this species has been synonymized with M. ocellatus, which is known as the Round-Tail Paradise fish.

But for more fun...that was only the name given in the Second release of the series. In the previous releases (thanks to that auction, I now know there are two others--the orignal first series, and the revised series) it was listed as M. opercularis, the common Paradisefish--except that the figure (from what I can tell) never had the forked tail that defines the Paradise fish, but instead always had the round tail.

This figure is the Paradise Fish (or Paradise Gourami), Macropodus chinensis , number 10 from the first series. This is the first and only anabantid figure in the set. The Paradise Fish is a generalist species that is found, like many of the fish in the series, in waterways throughout eastern Asia from Korea to Vietnam. Although highly adaptable and overall common in their range, they are apparently considered threated in Thailand due to pollution (which has allowed mosquitoes and their associated diseases to increase—lousy ecological cycles); and then, in Japan, they were deliberately introduced (for pest control!) and are considered invasive. As with the few previous entries, the Paradise Fish is common in aquariums—in fact, it was one of the first ‘exotic’ aquarium fish available to the ‘western’ world. They remain popular, despite being quite aggressive, mainly because they are also very attractive. The Yujin model (and other sources) states that the normal size is around 7cm.

The quality level is just impressive! ªIt doesnt matter how challenging is the sculpt or painting, Yujin will always get it correct! Very Happy
