Congratulations with finding these iconic, old models, - and is almost perfect shape cheers

Most probably know this, but still good to remember how interesting their history is :
They were sold by Schleich ( small one), Bullyland and Safari ( both sizes) when these brands were still quite young in the model-animal world ! Isn't it fantastic ?  Very Happy
And they are still some of the best ones and almost unique, - how many male fur seals do we have ?  Very Happy

Paige have just provided pictures of the AAA sea lions, not these in this old topic, and now I believe all seals, sea lions, dugong and manatees known are already listed on TAW. I know manatees and dugongs do not belong here but they are often displayed on catalogues together with seals.

Man you are fast Roger! I've seen these fur seals before, but haven't gotten them yet!

Oh I have the larger figure on my wish list, but I don't know if I should include the pup as it is incorrectly made to look like the adult.

I have decided, I'll add the pup too as it's a Steller's Sea Lion on the TAI

Yes Adam. These figures were debated a lot in the past. There was always discussions about AAA large/small models. Are they different sized versions of adults or adult/youngster? The pair here represented was one of the responsibles for these discussions. Schecking TAW page, you can see that most of them have a corresponding youngster. Now notice that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], presents them as sea lions but shows the bottom of the large figure marked with fur seal. We know from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that the smaller figure is marked Sea Lion, if they intended to represente adult/young, why would they mark them differently?As I use to say, AAA range is very modular and their figures are used in many ways but after a long research, I think the best identifications are the large as a Northern fur seal and the small version as an adult Steller's sea lion. To be fair, the large model is not even ambiguous, it is really correctly sculpted for a fur seal, namely that head is very good. 
Being AAA so complex, I immediately added Paige's pictures on TAW to clean my reptilian brain. affraid
