I know it's getting annoying isn't it! There's one on eBay here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I don't know if you can trust this seller or not, it says he's sold three. But no feeback yet.

I'm also waiting for her Tigerstrike because I will buy her in a toy shop in town when she will be there. But it's long...

If you want to buy her in a web shop here is a link Wink Very Happy : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks for the link Christophe, but I prefer local (American) online shops.
You are so lucky to live in France, 'cause you can choose in the shop the best looking one out of many other! bom

It's not even available in the US yet. I just received mine from Germany (MPV) today together with the four newest Dinos. And it's a big hit. The Papo has the biggest blow of the year. All competitors are simply knocked out with this gentle beauty. For me, the best animal figure of 2010. cheers

Thanks- No, I'm not the artist behind it. I wish I were as good as you are in painting. I'm the most untalented in this field.

Well, it wasn't pre-ordered. On their site it said it's in stock, so I placed the order (for some other animals as well) and it wasn't until they had sent the order to me, that I noticed the Tigress wasn't included. Anyway, I emailed them and they said Papo are rubbish at getting the new releases to them. I ordered it 15th of June.

That's disputable!
I think we should make a kind of survey on this issue here.

PostSubject: PAPO 2010 TIGRESS ARRIVES!   Tue Aug 24, 2010 11:37 am

Yippee! Finally, I have her in my hands. She is beautiful...

I do have something to say regarding the painting of this model (let me first assure you that I love her to bits!) however the paintwork could have been a lot better, the male tiger is awesome all round, the detail is amazing on the male, whereas the tigress is lacking depth, the stripes are brown and on the face where white should be prominent round the mouth and above the eyes, it’s faint and isn’t as striking as it should be. I think they could have done a bit more with the painting; I knew what to expect though from seeing other’s pictures. She is still superb and I’m proud to have her in my collection, but Papo seem to be getting a bit lax with their painting.
Look at the white and rich colours on this guy...

You are right in both cases:it is a splendid animal,but the painting could have been a lot better!
The fur pattern isn't so realistic,and the colours glossy and translucent!Still a wonderful model which I am searching for too!Congratz! cheers

I too noticed the painting style from others pictures but didn't want to say anything as I knew you were so excited to get her.

She is still very pretty and the cub is very cute.

I really need to get some more Papo models.
