So folks, here you have it.  Yet another highlight of the wildlife collection.  The gorgeously wonderful Diana Monkey.

I know many of you have longed for this species and now we finally have it and I am so happy to share this with you.  This was another species which was not made in time for a 2013 release.  This model has taken almost two years to reach us as it was started in early 2012.

There is a lot of difficulty in making primates, I think they are one of the most difficult animal groups to get right because of their faces.  This model was worked on continuously for quite some time and was frankly a bit of a nightmare but finally it is here and better than the previous prototype version.

Enjoy Very Happy

White field on monkey's neck/chest - will it be whiter, so the color contrast is stronger? Or is this the final version?

IMO, this is the most elegant and beautiful monkey species, next to mantled guereza. Collecta captured it very well!

I would a love a picture of its face. But it would go nicely with Mojo's proboscis monkey. Great job!

This is the final version - it was originally bright white but in reality many real photos showed an off white creamier colour hence this finish.  The original white was too stark.

Oh, I told the big minus from CollectA 2013 range was the lack of a monkey, poor creature was planned to 2013 but only arrived now! It is good to know that the brand decided to delay it one year to provide us the best they can do. Very Happy Monkeys are really hard to make, we see pictures and pictures and they look all different. Very Happy
Just purchased my Mojo proboscis monkey, another unusual release and I am really happy with it and it helps me understanding why you decided to put a less vibrant contrast in the figure, it turns markings more accurate but a less atractive result. As a last note,I am glad it is an African monkey and surely a great addition for 2014! monkey cheers

Impossible, it would turn the figure smaller than those from toobs. Maybe it is a 1/10 or 1/12.5 scratch

I think you are right Roger! study  In scale 1:25 it would have to be 2cm long so 50% shorter than Schleich mountain hare or, in different words, as small as Britains lamb, only with additional tail  Smile

It's the biggest must have with the tasmanian devil, the water buffalo, the cassowary and the wild ass until now.

Actually I think one of the prettiest monkey species I have ever seen - with the cutest face and gorgeous colours is actually the Douc Langur. Google it and have a look. The diana monkey is another pretty looking species though. I hope we have a Douc Langur one day.
