PostSubject: Walrus with changed teeth/tusks?   Sun Dec 05, 2010 7:04 pm

From Portugal and one of our very good friends I love you came a brand new walruss for me, and as I am beginning to be interested in sealife, I had to take a picture for my homepage Very Happy

Then I remembered I had an old one in a box somewhere, - and comparing, their teeth albino (are they called tusks ?) were not similar Shocked

The one to the left is from portugal, probably painted by Maia + Borges, - is that why the teeth are different, or do all new walrusses have thicker teeth ?

I think who paint the figures, can't change them :)

You guys won't believe it, but right now I was looking for a walrus to buy, and I've discovered that it is VERY hard to find! The walrus is DISAPPEARING, literally!
Soon, it will "extinct" from the market, so hurry up and buy him!
I just bought mine for $8.50 + $8.45 for shipping Mad (!) but I didn't care, for I know how difficult it's gonna be to find it once retired.

Pointed tusks look more realistic...it's just the mouth shape looks funny. What were they thinking when they made this figure?
I prefer the Safari LTD. Walrus!

Yes, the poor creture would starve if he didn´t have pointed tusks, - and could not fight other males.

About his looks, - he is a relatively old guy, was designed in 96-97 for the marked in 98. Schleich in general were more "abstract" then, - which I personally find very charming Wink

He, he, he looks like a picture I have of my great-grandfather Laughing geek Laughing

He looks very hard like Georges Clémenceau indeed. He was the French president during the WWI. Laughing
