Wow Scott, that eel looks so realistic! As you said, one can really get the slick and wet feeling from the painting.

I find eels extremely creepy though. But a very cool figure!

Thank you very much Roger!

They really are, Steve! (in a league of their own) It's been such a pleasure collecting them. and thank you!

I agree completely Krista, extremely creepy. nightmarishly so. if there were an emoticon shuddering, I'd put it here. Instead, I'll just write 'brrrrhehehehhrrrreeeeblah!' (wait, is this a "shuddering" emoticon?: Mad ...I just don't know what that little dude is doing.)

Thank you Sauroid!

A real eel? I find that both very cool and very unnerving. I'll stick with the plastic. Very Happy

Thank you Andreas. The lines are not so bad. But I'll take some better pictures and post them (but not today since it is so cloudy and rainy, it is completely dark). The figure is only three pieces total, so there are fewer lines. At many angles, they are very hard to see. It is one of the better models in that respect.

Andreas, here are some pictures that hopefully give you a better idea of the visibility of the lines between the pieces that make up the Eel figure.

Laughing sorry Embarassed
I'll have to ask my brother what kind of eel it was, they're sea creatures I think. One reason why I'll never go swimming in the sea, actually we have seen eels in the rivers and streams right near my house, but they're harmless to humans and very timid.

I just asked him and he said it's called a Hagfish (horrible name!) take a look... [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] They're not eels, but look like them, so Scott you can go back to liking your Kaiyodo one now Razz

These are hideous too [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Lampreys are the worst animals on earth. Seriously. I would never buy a model of a lamphrey. Ever. Blech.

(I'm am back to liking my Kaiyodo Eel though. Thank you. Very Happy )

Just a quick mention - that Peacock is not Kaiyodo. It's by Furuta; part of their Funny Animals sets that they released basically in direct competition with Kaiyodo when Kaiyodo began collaborating with Takara. Initially Kaiyodo collaborated with Furuta on the Animatales (Chocoeggs) series, but around series 5 Furuta and Kaiyodo parted ways and Kaiyodo continued the Animatales (ChocoQ) figures with Takara. Furuta continued its Chocoeggs line with two series of "Funny Animals" or "Amazing Animals". The peacock pictured earlier is part of Furuta's series - Kaiyodo had nothing to do with it.

Fun Fact for today affraid cheers

That's really interesting. Thank you!

Isn't the Baboon (with Baby) and the Tasmanian Devil part of the "Funny/Amazing" animal series as well? (I think I have several others from that series: the Armadillo and Meerkat, for example.)

Is the King Cheetah an actual Kaiyodo?

Then there is the feared Amazonian catfish, the Candiru Asu. I would note that there is a much smaller version of this creature, as well.

Yes, both the Baboon and Tasmanian Devil are Furuta, and you are correct about the Armadillo and Meerkat from your collection both being from that series. The King Cheetah is Furuta as well. One of the easiest ways to tell which is which: All of Kaiyodo's figures were "Animals of Japan," whereas, Furuta's were global. So all of Kaiyodo's can be found in Japan - whether they are native to Japan or not didn't seem to matter. Some of the species Kaiyodo produced were introduced species, but they were all regarded as, and thus included as animals of Japan.

Furuta produces the Chocoeggs figures - from animals to planes and ships - Furuta is the producer of Chocoeggs, which are literally little chocolate egg candies. Kaiyodo worked with Furuta to produce the first 5 sets of Chocoeggs Animals of Japan (aka, Animatales). Kaiyodo and Furuta parted ways following the release of Chocoeggs Animals of Japan Series 5, and Kaiyodo teamed up with Takara. Kaiyodo/Takara continued the Animals of Japan series under Takara's ChocoQ lineup, starting with Series 6 and continuing through Series 11.

Meanwhile, jilted ex-partner Furuta produced Chocoeggs Funny Animals/Amazing Animals Series 6 and 7 to directly compete with the Kaiyodo/Takara ChocoQ Animatales.

Such drama and suspense for toy companies!

Oh - and none of these figures are "Puzzle" figures. FameMaster produces those. Kaiyodo, Takara, and Furuta produce Capsule figures. They come in pieces so that they can fit inside really small capsules and then be sold blind in a vending machine. They could never fit a fully built figure inside one of those capsules. But they most definitely are not puzzles (most even come with directions for assembling them, in case it wasn't obvious). And, it's been my experience that the figures that hit the market in the first few waves have the tightest joints, some so much so as to be barely visible. As the production runs continue, the joints and seams tend to become much more obvious. Just my two cents.
