Walkaround of the Alaskan king crab, Paralithodes camtschaticus (Tilesius, 1815), by CollectA Sealife Collection, new for 2019. This figure is one of a couple firsts. It is the FIRST crustacean by CollectA. It is the FIRST arthropod by a Western company's 'Sealife' line (not counting Incredible Creatures crustaceans by Safari LTD). It is only the second by a non-Japanese company, the other being a scientifically-inaccurate figure by Play Visions in the mid-late 1990s. This was a bold move by CollectA and per usual, they delivered big time.

This figure is fantastic and easily rivals the Yujin figure. The detail is stunning, from the plates on the body to the texture on the exoskeleton. The mouthparts are soft and flexible, but the rest of the figure is a hard, sturdy, high-quality plastic we come to expect from CollectA.

The figure is big, probably bigger than some of you expected. The carapace is 3.5 cm, making the figure 1:10.9 (1:11) on average. The maximum dimensions of the leg-span are 12.5 cm wide by 10.0 cm long, so it takes up a bit of space if displayed flat. It is still significantly smaller than a Safari IC crustacean.

Overall this is an exciting, bold move for CollectA. Given the frequency they release certain taxa, I don't expect anything similar soon, but it looks promising for the future!

Thanmks for this walkaround. Stunning and wonderful sculpture. Nevertheless, as I feared it already, this figure seems to big for my collection Sad
But maybe, it inspires more companies to make such amazing figures.

WOW !!! I am so happy I found this walkaround !!!! It is a magnificent model cheers

As CollectA has not made much new stuff ( except three awesome horses), I think this has to be my collecta wildlife model of 2020 Very Happy

Thankyou for the great walkaround cheers

Glad you enjoyed. It really is a spectacular model and rivals the Japanese figures!

Oh, I also missed this topic. Luckily Susanne brought it back. flower
That's a tremendous figure and CollectA is really expanding their quality to all taxa.
That's something I doubt I will add to my collection but I really find it a magnificent piece.
