This is a rare species of Great White Robert, its a Sail Fin Great White.
When they have had a busy day chasing this and that unfortunate creature they quite often get very tired. Sleep
So they simply rise to the surface and when the wind catches their Dorsal fin they can cruise quite happily along with no effort at all. Laughing
Only don't tell anyone or there will be Sail Fin Great Whites in every corner shop! Wink pirat

Or it could be just the camera angle question Very Happy

It is hard to make a realistic looking figure of a Great White, because Great Whites look unreal to start with!

This is a very nice figure, but i think he'd look better if his paint job were more nuanced. His SOLID GRAY on top and SOLID WHITE on the bottom with a crisp line between the colors, the paint job does not look alive.
Sharks usually have some pink around their lower snouts, and a grayish cast under their white, and even if their top parts are all one unvarying gray (i doubt they are, but if they are) they still don't look one solid color.
It's very hard to paint a smooth slick skinned animal realistically, especially one who is normally seen underwater, where water blurs the sharpness or casts shadows and colors.

Coming up with a good paint job for him will be very hard, but worth it, to make him a Shark, instead of a shark-shaped piece of plastic.

It's nice white shark! I love the colour and many had mentioned that is not easy to make a white shark look realistic. But this one is ok! Susanne saying it's scary. But I find him cute!! Laughing Laughing

I think some light pink colour below the jaw would brighten it up. And some lighter gray in toward the eyes can be better!

I really like the shape of the whales body tails and fins, but I agree with Ken Yeo that this shark looks too cute! I do not find it scary and it almost looks like it smiling. "Perhaps it is smiling before it eats it next seal or human swimming in the ocean.

Thanks for posting Egbert! Very Happy I know you love hsarks! pirat Wink
Interesting suggestions again and interesting work Ken! sunny
Martin, Ken changed the shading, you can see around the dorsal fin a darker colouring and also behind the eye a lighter grey, I guess! Laughing
I think it is to give a less solide colour to the animal. I like it! :)
We need a classic picture of a shark, in a side view but seeing the ventral part. :)

Sharks only have two expressions, smiling... :)



...or laughing! Laughing

They lived for a very long time fighting against mass extinctions but I'm afraid humans will make them cry! Crying or Very sad

I hope some day Roger that man loses the need to kill everything he is afraid of!
Sharks suffer some of the worst outrages, especially from the Asia regions where they are in huge demand for Shark Fin soup!

The sharks are caught in nets, stripped of their fins and then thrown back in the Sea alive, where they drowned!
Personally I admire and respect these magnificent predators, like Crocodiles they are almost perfect in terms of evolution and have remained much as they are for thousands of years.

Perhaps one of the reason's that Mojo tries not to depict predators such as the Hyena, Lion, Shark etc., as vicious and ferocious is because this just perpetuates man's fear of these animals and so in some small way could also hasten their end.
We all know that Hyena's and other such animals need to kill to live but there is no need to make people in general think that this is all they are about.
They all have a much gentler side, also if you look hard enough most animals have a particular movement or gesture that make you recognize something about that species in the figure. So really their is no need to show every predator with teeth showing and claws out
I for one hope that Mojo will not only consider the collectors and consumer but also take time to consider the animal itself, i think they have a responsibility to do this.

Sorry for my rant! But i feel better now! tongue pirat

Egbert, great great comment! cheers
I love the serenety of Mojo hunters, I'm a big fan of Mojo hyena and lion as everybody knows here! All animals are graceful and should be respected, of course! :)
But more than the wonderful Mojo figures, I love Mojo philosophy!!! cheers Wink

Hear, hear, Egbert!

I like that Mojo thinks beyond stereotypes. Some companies seem to think that every hippo is yawning, every elephant is trumpeting, every mustang is rearing, and every okapi has its tongue in its ear.
