I knew from early proto pics that new Ancient Fishes were coming from Favorite, but I assumed the Atractosteus gar would be an alligator gar...

But they went with CUBAN gar! The most endangered of them all!



They've also teased a Scleropages arowana, but we'll see what species they do!

Very nice! I'm actually dying to get my hands on that gar. An alligator gar would have been my preferred species, but I love supporting endangered wildlife as well. Any help finding a site that sells them to US buyers at a reasonable price would be much appreciated.

To be fair there are a few gator gar figures out there (even a freakishly rare and expensive Aqualand one). I am personally thrilled to get a different species...and they should be releasing in a few weeks!

As for sources, Brett is taking preorders, and some of us know our ways! But I don't think there are any definite sources outside of Japan.

Thanks for the information. I didn't know it wasn't out yet. I had seen pictures and it was absolutely gorgeous!

I'm, just curious, but are there any 5-6" gator gars, or thereabouts? This is the size range that interests me most. While the Cuban gar is a different species and I do not know how big they get, this figure could realistically represent a large, 1:20 scaled gar in general. That and its overall beauty are why I love it.

I think the largest was the Replica Toy Fish one (called a 6" figure but I think closer to 5").

As far as Cuban gar go, they are pretty small--1.5 metres or so! So for scale, this figure is roughly 1/10 (it's about 16cm long). Of course, for a 3metre gator gar, that would make it 1/20 but their patterns are different.

I also just realized that a link to the Favorite site with the Ancient Fishes would be helpful! http://www.f-favorite.net/SHOP/1043521/list.html

Thanks for the link. It definitely helps! The dimensions work for me.
