Bowhead, thanks for these fine pictures and congratulations for finding some of them. I used your post on Andreas' additions topic to open a new topic to these sharks once it was missing on forum and thanks to you now we have it. Very Happy

Horn shark is very unusual in toy figure, but I think my favorite of this batch is the tiger shark. Very Happy

The Port Jackson Horn Shark was not the only singular species represented in that set: the Bonnethead Shark and the Sand Tiger Shark, also included in that set (Andreas has them) also are sharks we don't see often in the toy world.

Do you think it would be a good idea to put the Larami Whales poster on TAI?

Here is my new LARAMI BLACK TIP SHARK!!! YYEAAAAHHHH!!!! I also got my own Larami Sand Tiger Shark this morning, in the same package. Now, only five Larami Sharks to go!!!

OK, now, I know I put a picture of one of my Larami Whales posters somewhere in this forum, but I'm not sure where. Could it be in Widukind's topic "The Larami Animals in my Zoo"?

But now I have a doubt, Isn't this shark missing at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] scratch What have I missed, isn't it a collection of 8 figures? Very Happy

The sharks set included TWELVE figures, not eight. When I bought my whales, the sharks boxes were sold together with them, so it was easy for me to see the similarities between both sets, and not just the similarities between the boxes them selves. Each set included three boxes with four figures each. And the poster shown on the back of the sharks boxes described twelve species, just like the whales'.

Very interesting, Valérie! Very Happy
Now, with your blacktip reef shark, it is only missing 3 of them to be completed at Toy Animal Wiki. Please preserve all your pictures here because if you complete it, your pics may be favoured to make a consistent gallery with pictures of the same owner.

And you can see the whales poster just above. It is the light blue poster with the orange title and the twelve whales drawn in order of size.

You're doing a good job acquiring several Larami figures. Much probably you are the biggest Larami collector among us.
The release year is not known, I suppose? However, the bonnethead is probably the first figure known featuring this animal. Very Happy

Yes, it's the first toy representing this species.

As for the year of release, there are at least two: 1993 and 1997. I saw the Larami sharks (and whales) boxes in Toys'R'Us back in winter 1997. And not so long ago, I saw an almost complete set for sale (I didn't buy it because I would have got too many doubles) in a box dated 1993. That means the set has been released at least twice.

Interesting Valerie and thanks for providing the information.
Curiously the company was called Larami Corporation in 1993 while in 1997, already under Hasbro, it was called Larami Ltd. As I believe it won't be possible to check which exact versions are on TAI, I may assume the older release year. Very Happy

The sharks and the whales remained exactly the same from a release to another. And it's easy to know why: since sharks and whales are both living animals in the present, THEIR COLORS ARE KNOWN. So, the same color schèmes were used in both 1993 and 1997.
It is different with dinosaurs, because dinosaurs do not live in our world anymore. So, THEIR COLORS ARE UNKNOWN. So, since the true colors of dinosaurs are unknown, well, different color schèmes were used from a release to another (they were released three times).
So, to be short: while there is only one color scheme per whale and per sharks, each dinosaur, however, comes in three color schèmes each.

I think you're right--I had these 20 years ago--but the new Safari one is far more accessible (now).

I definitively will want, soon or later, a bonnethead in my collection. Obviously the Larami version is desirable but the current availability of the Safari figure will surely be considered once I find it oportune to add one of these to my collection. Sean's comment was surely in this regard. But the best is to own both. This species is so rare in toy shape.
It is unfortunate that 1993 and 1997 versions are exactly identical and that there isn't a single marking that could help identify them. As they are indistinguishable collectibles, the earlier release year is the correct. Very Happy

MY LARAMI BONNETHEAD SHARK ARRIVED THIS MORNING!!!! cheers Now, I have exactly NINE Larami Sharks. Only three to go!!! Applause

There is one collector here who owns both Larami and Safari ltd Bonnethead Sharks: the german tapir called Widukind who sleeps in his shed because his house is too much filled with figures Laughing . I know that because I tried getting his Larami Bonnethead so hard, crying on my knees at his feet, without any success. It is fortunate that I could have my own Larami Bonnethead via EBay.
It is surprising though that PlayVisions didn't represent the Bonnethead Shark in toy shape, while this company made soooo many unusual/unknown species... Maybe some other company will make one more in the future, like CollectA? Anyway, I don't count on Schleich on that, they hardly ever represent a species that has not been represented first by someone else.
