Joe Boxer Clownfish

I'm told this is a rare find these days, it's successor being smaller and more common. The toy itself is circa 2004 and the box it came in looked somewhat battered and beaten, perhaps having lingered in a shop or warehouse for some time before being put up on eBay.

Anyway, it's the first fish to feature in my collection (excluding the sharks) and it's a nice large candidate. The strong smelling glossy vinyl is lovely and the design is both clever (vertical tailfin adds to the toy's stability when the body squishes down) and cute too.
