Small updates today to both the Animals and Shields sections.
In animals there are a couple of changes to the expected additions from the 9324 Mermaid Carry Case. The gold seahorse turns out to be the same as the previous gold seahorse. I had expected it to be a different gold but comparisons in hand show it to be the same. So that part number is now associated with the old gold seahorse as well. The white clamshell box however turns out to be new. It is a brighter more pure white color than the old ones. The old ones were a little off-white and had a green iridescence when seen in person. The new ones lacks the green tone.
Also unexpected, the purple coral piece is a darker purple than previously seen. It has the same part number though, so has been added as a color variation rather than something new.
The one part that was as expected is the new blue color for the shell ornament piece
In the Shields section the image for the magazine Dwarf shield was updated
A shield was added from the Antex 9300 Indian set as well
Thanks to Bob in Germany for both of those images.
I finally opened the 2017 PCC annual figure gift the 9297 Don Quixote set and the shield seems to be unique. The outer part is a dark anthracite metallic grey/silver color. Not black as previous versions of this shield have often been.
Hard to see in photos, but in person it is evident.
That’s it for this little update. Next will be the Figures series 13 that is finally arriving in the US. Thanks for reading – Tiermann
