Hey Sbell, did you see that line of Portuguese models Roger found with some interesting fish? Several freshwater ones that were intriguing.

I didn't see that. But now I'll have to find that!

I enjoy to see all the interest around these little figures I am only afraid I can't find as many as are being demanded. They're not cheap either.
You can see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the original package presentation.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] a big lot that was for sale but I don't know if all are Azur premium figures. :)
If you can identify them what I doubt once pics are not good enough, please provide me a list and I list these figures at the Wiki. Very Happy

p.s. if you can't open the pictures, you probably have to click in the word "aqui" in these pages. study

Those are very cool--and I recognize some from sets I had as a kid, and later got again as an adult.

I would love to pester you for them, but I really only need--yes NEED--one of them, a figure I've never seen before--the Malapterus catfish. I have never seen one made by anybody! The striped fish above it would be cool too.

So, yeah, if you can hunt that down, that would be great--or at least point me in the right direction. I can always trade as well! I'm expecting a big lot of Yujin fish (with, yes, the carp) that will have a bunch of spares, for example!

Congratulation Sean for identifying a Malapterus catfish in the batch Applause

I can see a lot of models used by Prior in his fish series. You can watch them [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy

If Malapterus catfish is the one called Silure, I can find it for less than 2€. Tell me if it could help.

I don't miss much--especially that sort of thing!

That's definitely the one! Yes, please help me get one. Can you get others as well?  There are a few others that might be of interest.

That's interesting and I remember seeing this page before. That's all so confuse, even Portuguese collectors of vintage premium figures are not able of determining with exactitude which figures belonged to each collection. This page about Prior helps actually. Very Happy
It also seems that Prior versions are more common than Azur figures so I am glad you can help Sean. Not easy at all to find Azur fish around and all the collectors I tried to contact haven't replied yet. I find some on auction websites but almost always Zoo figures and often between 3 and 5 Euros what I find expensive.
It seems Prior have no bird series neither dog series, isn't it Christophe? scratch

Prior never made the birds and dogs series an dit is really too bad. I agree they are easier to find and cheaper too so I hope I can help.

Looking at the Prior figures, I definitely have or had some repaint/recast versions, although not as nice. The ones I would want the most, like the Malapterus (Silure), I've never seen.

Although not of the same level, this is the sort of set we would now see from some of the Japanese companies!

Interesting models all around; too bad they're so hard to find! I wonder if it would be worthwhile to try to pool and purchase a lot like Roger found to split?

It looks like the same molds were used, but there are so many more of the Azur ones. (and the ones I'm most interested in durnit! Laughing want the goldfish, freshwater angel and discus) Is that a pretty comprehensive listing of the Prior molds, or just what they had to sell?

Here is the link from Roger's previous post in the other thread again. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I asked Google to translate the Prior page, and many of the species are mislabeled IF it translated correctly. For instance, the 'guppy' is a modern Betta splendens/Siamese fighting fish. The prices are good though, my top two picks for only 3 Euro total! Very tempting!

More disturbing--the 'Balentio' is suppose to be a bala shark...I have two, and they don't like that. But the Labeo would be cool. And the Colissa. And yes, reasonable prices!

Is a bala what Balentio is supposed to be?!? I couldn't make heads nor tails of that one, looks like it's a dolphin or something!
I like the red tail labeo also (was thinking of doing a custom one out of a gashapon) and the Colisa, though strictly speaking Pearl gouramis are Trichopodus genus not Colisa. At least they're recognizable and not waaAAay off in name. Could be the common name issue also. The Botia really jumped at me, looks more like a Hoplo cat. Some I'm not sure what they're supposed to be, or they don't look right, but I'm not sure of my translation and/or would like to see the figure better to judge.

I looked up Balentio in Google imagesand saw what fish images I could get--and that was the only one.

To me, the only vertebrate it actually matches is an ichthyosaur--pointed snout, single dorsal, paired flippers, vertical tail.

And yeah, I just like the pearl gourami--but for simplicity, I just used the name on the site. Also, agreed re: the botia/hoplo cat. A real botia would make me much happier.

Prior never made the birds and dogs series an dit is really too bad. I agree they are easier to find and cheaper too so I hope I can help.

Thanks Christophe, so I'll concentrate in these birds and see what I can find for reasonable prices to those interested. Maybe I can try also to get some fish missing in Prior collection. Prior are marked while Azur are not what turns things not so easy. Azur dogs are marked with breed what is a curious detail. Very Happy
Well Sean, we're a little off topic but now everything is more or less clearer. Very Happy

That's okay--if it brings me more fish figures, I'm all good! Christophe, please let me know what ones are available (you can just PM me) and we'll go from there!

I haven't had much to add for a while--but it was a busy day with the postal service yesterday!

I Received a whole pile of stuff to end 2015! Almost everything came from Japan through Brett (Bmknj), except for the Paleo-Creature Pachycrocuta all the way from Spain via Jetoar!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It's very scattered but:

Favorite Megalodon & Archelon
Neko Works Greenland shark and Starry Smooth Hound shark (two of the latter)
Furuta Hypostomus
Kaiyodo ChocoQ Painted Frogfish with associated goby (any idea on the species, for those who have it?)
Kaiyodo Hokkaido Sakehaline tamien
Kaiyodo Deep sea Delafish (on Viperfish base--I seem to get a lot of those with different owners!)
Kaiyodo Paleozoic re-release Eusthenopteron, Bothriolepis, Pterygotus & opabinia
Kaiyodo Sendai Aquarium Wolffish
Nature Technicolor (Science Technicolor) Planarian on strap
22 Yujin Freshwater fishes, from Release I and II; with almost the right number of bases! Fortunately, almost all are doubles--but I did finally track down an elusive Carp figure, plus the gold Carassius auratus langsdorfii. So expect those walkarounds, plus a few comparison shots from various Series I & II that I can now pair up (loach, snakehead, flounder...I think that's them).
And...an empty Colorata Box (Marine Mammals). Because it was there, and I use them to stay organized...

And I still get to put everything together! Although I may leave some of the Yujins bagged in case other people might be looking--once I know what's there!

I also received the Jurassic World Blu-Ray box with T.rex and I.rex models (not pictured). Good models for a so-so movie.

First I have to sort and work through everything! It's going to take me a while, I think!

Just got some fishy goodies from France, thanks to Christophe (Kikimalou)! Mostly from PRIOR:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Some of the real gems:

Electric catfish:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Hoplo cat (?):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Pike cichlid?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Archerfish
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A cool little fish that I can't quite name yet...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A characin of some kind that, agian, is escaping me right now:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A neat skate:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And a...something. I honestly have no idea on this one--possibly a deep-sea fish of some kind. It's more of a solid plastic than the others, like a Marx figure.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And, as a surprise, a neat little plastic hyena (of a brand I have to determine):

Any IDs are welcome, since PRIOR doesn't use name markings. And I have spares of some, so they may need new homes!

Christophe is an expert finding figures and surely they found a fantastic place to live. I can't help identifying them and I think the best person to help you in this regard is the current owner. Laughing

I don't think so--it is made of a softer rubbery material, and there is a hole in the snout that appears to have been for a key chain or something at one time.

It is marked with words--PECHERIES and BOULANNAISSES but I don't know if that is meaningful as a brand or something.

I don't think so--it is made of a softer rubbery material, and there is a hole in the snout that appears to have been for a key chain or something at one time.

It is marked with words--PECHERIES and BOULANNAISSES but I don't know if that is meaningful as a brand or something.

Thank you, very very interesting :)

It may be silly from me but it is probably an advertising keychain of Pecheries Boulonnaises, a French seafood market. Though, it needs to be Boulonnaises instead of Boulannaisses. Very Happy

You are probably correct Roger--right down to the spelling! I added an 's'!

I am curious what else that market has done.

However I notice no one has taken a shot at whatever this is:

Again about your skate keyring, it seems there are unless a crab, and a lobster either.

The fish is impossible for me to identify, can you put it in a certain taxa? Family or something like that?

That is my thinking, but I haven't had a chance to look into it much!

And good to know I got the best of the market keychains! Minus the chain, of course!

I have realized that I don't have a thread on here for when I get new stuff! So it is time to fix that, since I just came back from a trip to Florida and found a few great things (and left behind a lot of terrible things).

First off, I found a ridiculous number of rays--and this doesn't even count my kids' stuffed animals...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The big one is a ray from Sun Wai. The species isn't particularly obvious, but I think it is sort of representative of a Blue Stingray Dasyatis chrysonota. It's a water squirter, but it never will be! Most interesting is that it has not one but two barbs on the tail.

Second, I picked up some new sets of the Club Earth rays set. My origial ones were more pearlescentin colour, but these would be more 'bright'. They are also stickier than the pearl ones, so I'm hoping that they dry out soon.

Finally, although we avoided Sea World, they did have 2 gift shops in the airport--and apparently Sea World has manufactured their own figures! I don't collect marine mammals, which dominated, but they did have what might be the nicest Spotted Eagle Ray I have--and an odd coloured Leopard shark.

I also found a few dinos:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Two of those are Battat re-release dinos, a Ceratosaurus and Amargasaurus. Only available at Target, and since that chain only lasted a few months here in Canada, I had to get them while there! Plus, my son found a 4D puzzle 'raptor' model, which is clearly based on the Ornitholestes from Walking with Dinosaurs.

Will that big ray be on TAI, someday?

It really should be--we don't even have Sun Wai listed!

Well, here you go!

I know that there are a couple other Sun Wai on the Animal Toy forum, but I don't have them. It's kind of an odd company.

Battat Acrocanthosaurus (revised edition)! Every time I go to the US, I go to a Target, and find another of the series! I'll find the T.rex some day.

Very nice addition, this is a beautiful Acrocanthosaurus. I hope you will find the tyrannosaurus and that this new edition stand on its feet.

I hope I will catch the new Diplodocus before my next trip to USA. Laughing

Well, it went without saying that I would get the 4 new Soft Model Ancient fish!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
(note--the spae between the two brown fish tnak lid is about 60cm)

Didn't need the giant soft vinyl coelacanth--but these 4 are amazing figures!

The bichir is awesome--and it's nice to have a definite silver arowana.

Overall, this is, and will be, a good year for freshwater fish figures. And fish in general!

I definitely will--and add them to the ancient fishes thread somewhere here!

But I just got them this evening, so it probably won't be until the evening.

A characin of some kind that, agian, is escaping me right now:

A neat skate:

And a...something. I honestly have no idea on this one--possibly a deep-sea fish of some kind. It's more of a solid plastic than the others, like a Marx figure.

And, as a surprise, a neat little plastic hyena (of a brand I have to determine):

Any IDs are welcome, since PRIOR doesn't use name markings. And I have spares of some, so they may need new homes!

Do you have identify all fishes? :)
