As is usual for EIKOH , they have launched two sets at the same time.
Untill now, the sets have been quite varied, and often a pair has been split up between the two.
But these latest two sets have each a theme : You can see volume 9 with Australian animals here : http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t17193-photos-of-eikoh-australian-animals-set-10-july-2016
The 10th set of models consists of animals from the oceans, and I am happy to be able to show you a few pictures
Item no 70885 , Killer Whale (Orca) .
Without being an expert, I would say that this is a very nice baby Orca of the Pacific type
Item no 70886 , a wonderful male fur seal
There are not many models of this kind of Eared Seals , and I adore this guy , - he is in no doubt that he is handsome
Item no 70887, a lovely sea otter, - I think he is quite young ?
AND : The Dugong
It has item no Item no 70888, - a beautyful little model
Item no 70889 is an emperor penguin...I would have prefered almost any other kind of penguin, but he has nice proportions
Item no 70890 is a lovely sea turtle .
Wonderful paintwork ! I think there is no doubt it is a Green Seaturtle
And then Item no 70891, a bottlenosed dolphin .
I wonder if children know that there are other kinds of dolphins than Flipper ?
At first I almost hated the water part, but it really grows on me...it makes the model stand out from all the other BN-dolphins, and even if it reminds me of the cheap souvenirs we can get at seaside shops, it is actually quite well done
Item no 70892 is a Sperm Whale.
The sperm whale is a fantastic creature, but ...
...it is probably quite realistic in a toyish way.
But perhaps It is because I am so nearsighted, it just looks like a black piece of plastic
Just for fun , - the little sea lioness is flirting with the two impressive males : Wally and Furry
All in all, a nice , varied set
