Here is a rubber Sailfish I found in the flea market. It is only marked "Made in China". Anyone knows what brand made it, please?

I have no idea, I tried to find it in Wild Republic catalogue but no way. They released some large rubber animals in the past but I am almost sure I haven't seen this beautiful fish before.
Is it a Indo-Pacific sailfish, isn't it? Really wonderful piece. :)

Mass marketing. (Required to have China for international purposes) - they can be bought and repackaged by companies with less resources or who don't want to invest in molds/moulds. For example bargain stores...

It must be from the same people that make a lot of the terrible toy dinosaurs--complete with teeth that shoudln't be there.

That's exactly the reason of Sean's comment, I guess. If it was a terrible figure in all regards, these teeth won't be surely a problem but just a detail. I think Sean means that it is a pitty that such a nice figure have teeth like these. Wink

That's exactly what I meant--it's not a museum-quality replica, but is well made, good paint scheme, decent detail. And then they threw those giant dinosaur teeth on it--when the real fish shouldn't even have teeth. It would actually make the fish easier to mold and cast wtih jsut a smooth mouth.

Especially disappointing since most large billfish models tend to keep the mouth closed, or onyl very slightly open.
