PostSubject: Barnacles (Kitan Club - Nature Techni Colour)   Sun Aug 20, 2017 8:42 pm

Review of the COMPLETE set of Barnacles, by Kitan Club - Nature Techni Colour (2012). I was happy to finally get the complete set. I previously had 6 figures representing one species each, but the complete set is 18 figures representing nine species! To my knowledge, this set represents the only barnacles in toy/figure form.

Some are solid figures, some are magnets, some are straps, and some are pins to be worn.

The first figure shows the complete set to get an idea how the sizes compare among the species.

I am writing the species' coverage in the Bug of the Day format, so I only have to cut-and-paste into that thread  C:-).

Enjoy!

the whole set:

I. Balanus rostratus.
There are four figures here. Three combine together to form a cluster (with magnets inside them to help hold them close), and the fourth is a strap figure (that I removed the strap to make a cluster of four).

VI. Megabalanus rosa.
Two figures. One is a pin but the other is remarkable: it is split down the center revealing a cross-section of the internal anatomy! Truly the most amazing in the set for this reason!

VII. Thatched barnacle, Semibalanus cariosus.
Two small figures, both with magnets.

Impressive sets with some incredible creatures. The Megabalanus rosa is really the champion of the batch. What size are they?
