Ok, so for those curious on the line of Atlantis Creatures here are a few shots of what I believe to be the current line up. Please let me know if I'm missing anyone.

the Crew:
Image

from Left to Right:

the Atlantis statue and the Atlantis Emperor, with mini statue
Image
back side / without armors

Mantis Ray & Shark
Image
back sides / pieces

Hammerhead & Squid
Image
back sides / pieces

Anglerfish & Crab
Image
back sides / pieces


Only minfig with a printed back ... the Emperor

If you're into collecting crazy minfigs these guys would be a great addition!
Some of these have super potential to be modded into something amazing, though this set will stay intact for future use and display.

Also, I would have used my BF Tridents, but they are being used by my Islanders at the moment ... I'll order BF ones special for this crew.

Great line-up! I have the Atlantis temple, so I luckily got a few rare ones. I have also been thinking about making a custom Davy Jones with a claw from the short red fish guy.

Great review, MC! I love the open-mouth shark guy thing.

@Baylego: I wouldn't be surprised to see an official reuse of that piece, really. :)

The claws are pretty cool, and there are a lot of useful pieces in this bunch.
I think the squid headpiece trimmed up a bit would make a sweet helmet.

Brilliant. I hope you do it! :D

Has the screaming shark guy been under the knife> I just noticed that one side is different from the other.

I will hunt down another headpiece and try it out at some point.

The Hammerhead ... he was a keychain, and I guess when my husband pulled out the top of the metal peg the soft plastic was roughed up a bit. Give him battle character :o)

Yeah, I never customize a piece I don't have multiples of. I always regret it.

Ah, that makes sense. I didn't notice it until I looked three times, so no biggie. :)

Yeah. I'd take a squid head, color it tan, then somehow attach a Jack Sparrow tri-corne hat.
