Finally a hippo without its mouth open!! Great replica. I think it is year of the Hippo--Papo, Safari and Bullyland.

Now that the disappointment of the lack of species is already vanishing in my mind. I must say that most of the figures look very nice. I like the way snow leopard is painted and also the proportions although head looks a little small contrarily with what usually happens with other brands. The lion looks also interesting for a roaring one, though it doesn't give me the sensation of seeing a real lion as I have when I saw the 2014 Mojo for the first time. But, Papo is very competent with this kind of figures and this lion is quite different from Mojo one.
However, the most noticiable thing is actually the use of Maia & Borges molds if confirmed. Since 2011 there were no news on Papo Aquatic Animals series, in 2012 M&B relauunches their sea life line and in 2014 Papo Aquatic line explodes with a lot of new releases. Shocked
It is strange that they used the walrus and manatee but not beluga and octopus. :) I don't see anything wrong int it once Maia & Borges is not a direct competitor of Papo, but it turns hard to understand when these molds were used recently by Schleich, clearly a direct competitor. Shocked
I am actually proud that a Portuguese company can put their molds in the range of such important companies like Schleich and Papo. Very Happy
As I love speculations and as I was never afraid of talking non sense, could it be the macaw also a M&B mold? study study study

Rogerio, Portugal is on the rise again. A lot of the 2014 Schleich models were made in Portugal!

What is the new bull? It looks painted like a holstien, but that can't be right.  scratch

I don't know the breed (in the video sometimes it is hard to see some things) but its basically their Spanish bull repainted with a little white and pink.  Smile

There are so many repaints, and a re-used mould (or are there more?), and buying old moulds. Papo are quite lazy for 2014.
I think 2013 release is better.

The pose of the Snow Leopard does look very similar to the puma pose, but it is definitely not the same mold. Look at pictures of the two side by side and it is clear that they are not the same, just similar. I'm very glad that they are not the same mold because the Puma was much too small. I'm definitely looking forward to this figure as it looks great!

I made the same remark but nobody would listen, guess they have to see both figures side by side to tell.

There are some nice figures, like the snow leopard or the cats. But why near all brands make a manatee but no dugong?

It's not that we didn't listen, but with technology these days it would be easy to reconfigure parts of the same mold. That's how companies like Safari are able to resize their WW series hippo into a regular line sized one I think.  Smile To me, it looks like they may have flipped the way the legs stand on the Puma (and this simply conjecture not fact) so it wasn't totally the same as before. but then again, I may be wrong and maybe they only reused the head.  Very Happy

That's interesting! Very Happy It seems I find who will help me finding one of them once I am almost sure all sold here will be made in China versions! Laughing Is the squirrel monkey made in Portugal? monkey

I've read your first impression when seeing it in locho was not the most positive. Though, it also doesn't look a traditional Papo sculpt. Mainly because of head size, you can see that snow leopard, siamese cat, beluga and many others have small heads, probably smaller than it should be. Though, the macaw has clearly a large head as you pointed. Some M&B ducks are also somewhat large headed, it looks it is a characteristic among brands that release comics like Schleich, Bullyland and M&B.

I'm tempted to get all the dinosaurs. Especially the Dilophosaurus, because it's one of my very favourite dinosaurs. And thank god it doesn't have frill! I was a bit worried since of all the brands, I was almost certain that Papo would make a frilled dilopho...

Shocked The baby triceratops is cute! The dilophosaurus looks scarier than the one in the Jurassic Park movie Twisted Evil I'm hoping the wildlife releases will be just as good.

Dilophosaurus' size was made smaller in Jurassic Park, so it wouldn't steal the spotlight from the main stars of the movie (t-rex and the velociraptors[which were made bigger, ironically]).
Originally dilophos were like 6 m long.


Thanks for the info!

The beluga, leatherback sea turtle, octopus and Galapagos tortoise look awesome! I jut might be making yet another exception to my rule and get the snow leopard  silent  I'm disappointed that the manatee and walrus look very similar to what Schleich had in the past and what M&B have currently. I was hoping the walrus would look similar to their mutant  Neutral I've been thinking about getting their dinosaurs, but they're very expensive.

I agree the beluga looks better than CollectA's. I think CollectA's is too short and round. I also think they should have made the tail smaller.

From what I've been told, the Safari resized figures all come from new sculpts based on the originals. so the new Panda and Hippo are sculpted to look like the Wildlife Wonders figures. Seems to me to be labor intensive, especially since resizing can be done very quickly & easily with a 3D scanner/printer. I would assume that even if Papo's Snow Leopard & Puma are similar, since they are definitely not repaints of the same figure, a new mold was cast from a whole new sculpt.
