Japanese Giant Salamander (Epoch - Living Fossil Collection)
« on: January 31, 2013, 08:57:16 PM »










With all the other Andrias figures going on here, I figured I'd get one of my few here. This is an Epoch figure, a company well-known for their Life Account of the Trip series. The Living Fossil set has a great variety of animals--the Salamander is one of two Secret Figures (the other is a Frilled Shark). This one is not quite up to the level of some of the Kaiyodo ones, but is definitely very well done.  And like many, it is reaching up to eat some poor, unsuspecting animal (looks to be a goldfish!).

It's definitely a lot better than the first Animatales version (what was it, Series 1 or so?)! :) Oh, but isn't it actually a crab that's being eaten by it?

As I look again, I think you are right--it's easier to see in a photo than in real life!
