Sure did! I hope you get your piranha soon (or already?)

Oh, I did! On Monday, I believe. Forgot to tell you. After only a few short months, I've gotten every characoid species ever rendered in plastic, as far as I know. There aren't many, as it happens.

It's depressingly easy to complete a collection like that...does that mean you were able to track down a Diramix (or is it DeAgosinti?) Hydrolycus? Because I would really like one of those!

Edit: It's in the DeAgostini Orke & Co [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Also the Diramix Tigerfish would be nice...

Oh, I'd actually forgotten about that one. No, I don't have one, but knowing that the TFF one is in the offing (along with Hoplias and Colossoma), it doesn't feel terribly urgent. Once that set (Freshwater Freaks) is released, about 0.8% of characoid species will have plastic versions! (Unless some of those Prior things are identifiable tetras.)

Darn...because that would potentially give hope to find it!

But yeah, it would be better if TFF did it.

As for Prior...I don't think there is a single characin...except the headstander. Which I'm pretty sure is a headstander (as always, colours notwithstanding)

Unless there's a better ID for it...they aren't always obvious.

Oh, that does kind of look like a headstander, except it seems to lack an adipose fin? A common affliction of characin toys, it seems.

And for Prior in general, they all seem to be just a little 'off'. But at least it gives you another one to track down!

But they definitely ignored the whole order of chariciformes otherwise, which is annoying.

Congratulations Sean! Tim is another big hunter of rare species. Well, one of the advantage of these DeAgostini is that we can choose the species we want. Laughing What the eel? Despite the not very common thematic of your collecting subject, it is great to see that there's always a way to increase your collection. Very Happy

Also, a PNSO Glyphoderma! One of the 2 I wanted (I already have the Himalyasaurus)...but couldn't get the hyena.

Still, Big ancient fish? Good day!

Apparently as a company they have kind of imploded. There are still some stragglers around (I was able to get this one from Japan) but otherwise not easy. I was excited that this one was available! On Amazon Japan (through a buying agent) but I don't think they are there anymore. The hyena was there when I first looked, but was gone by the time I requested the purchase...someday Laughing

Yeah, they're a good size. About 17cm each.

I would love a larger series, and an associated mini-size series of the same species!
