PostSubject: CollectA 2014: WILDLIFE - African Wild Ass (88664)   Fri Nov 15, 2013 12:55 pm

Dear all

I have extremely pleasure in being able to show you the CollectA African Wild Ass.  This model is another highlight for me in next year's collection and I have been waiting for a model of this beautiful animal for a long time.

This animal is based on a standing Wild Ass and is quite simple in it's pose but this was deliberate so as not to detract from the beauty of the animal.

Like Wild Water Buffalo's, Wild Ass images tend to vary due to different body shapes and this is based on a relaxed African Wild Ass image.  It is time for this critically endangered animal to be widely recognised.  I know most of you were hoping for the smaller Somali Wild Ass Sub-species but CollectA have opted for the main larger species due to its IUCN Red List Status.

I do hope we have a foal one day! Very Happy Very Happy

Interesting, the static pose and long body make me immediately think in the Mojo giant sable and I will repeat the same comment, good figures of unusual creatures doesn't need different poses to be great! I am so happy that there is a wild ass around! albino Very Happy

I agree with Christophe, the face is too squared off at the end, it should be sloping slightly curved.  The eye is too much at an angle, should be more horizontal with the characteristic gentle look. Hooves should be tapered more and not so flat.  Legs should be longer too to match the real animals proportions.

I believe the silhouette and correct shape are very important to making a species look the way it is suppose too.  This is the same as drawing a person but with too square a jaw or big a nose it wont look like them anymore.

I did a very quick photoshop alter to show what I mean.

I agree the model is good but it looks very much better with the adjustments to it.I will be getting this model regardless!!Roger mentioned the about this not being a Somali Wild Ass but this is a Somali Wild Ass!The other is the Nubian but this sub species doesn't have the leg stripes and has a shoulder cross stripe.

Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed  Even if I agree with Maximus, my first post was the beggining of a Macaque bad joke geek A few years ago I customized a Schleich tapir into a Baird's tapir and CollectA made an excellent one in 2013... This year I customized a AAA zebra into a Somali wild ass and look what CollectA is planing for 2014... Copycating What a Face  Laughing Laughing Laughing 

I will probably buy this one because this is the best Somali Wild ass in the market, It is the only one.  Maximus framed the failures of this model. I'm afraid it is too late too make some changes.

I do agree that with the adjustments it would be perfect but I love it anyway and it's on my personal top list especially if I think about the Schleich -every- year -repeating -boring- species

I've repainted the Schleich Tapir into a Mountain Tapir...Maybe someone should remodel one of the Indian Rhions into a Sumatran, and then we'll see what is happening..

About the suggested changes, - they would surely make it an outstanding model Very Happy 

Still, the nose-line does vary a lot !
I think we can always find pictures of one animal that does not look like one specific model.

Had they made the model like the ( BEAUTYFUL) suggested one, we could have criticized that as well scratch

Hi Susanne,  I understand where you are coming from but I just made those suggestions to better represent a standard specimen.  In general from a profile view it seems the characteristic face is some what sloping and defines the face of this species.  From a slightly 3/4 angle it will look a bit different with a bit of the squared off look but that is just the nostril showing from the other side due to the angle.

As with any species there are variations but it is always great when you see a model and it right away has those species specific characteristics.  Regardless I know this model will make a lot of collectors happy and it is great collectA is covering a diverse set of species.

Ohh! You have him already  Shocked 

Such a beautyful critter ! Those ears are SO cute drunken   cheers 

Funny thing is, I wondered why they had made a white line under the ears, - and when I checked some photoes, - they actully HAVE a light line there  Very Happy
