At one moment, one of my cats Brutus decided he wanted some attention.
Soooo, lets sit on the Orca, maybe she will pet me XD

Laughing Brutus is like my cat Smokey, if he wants attention he removes the object of your attention at that moment! lol!

Thank you for the walkaround  Smile It is detailed, however it looks as if with it being in the jumping pose, the white markings aren't proportioned. It's actually a he, there are no mammary marks present:

The female is on top, the male on the bottom. Even as a calf, the marks would be present.

I confess my ignorance and judged it by the shape of the dorsal fin and forgot that they're only distinct when they are not calves anymore. geek
Pectoral fins also look small for a male but I don't know if it can be seen in juveniles. scratch Also, the central white patch on back ventral part, is somewhat rounded and not stretched as it is in males, I guess but your explanation and knowledge about them make me sure you're right. Very Happy
It is good to have people expertized like you on forum to help us with the wonderful marine world. Very Happy

Males do not get the larger pectoral fins and dorsal fins until they hit puberty, which is usually between 11 and 15 years of age. I have noticed CollectA isn't too accurate in gender with the adult orca. It's pectoral fin, dorsal fin and lack of mammaries would suggest a male, but the patch on the ventral would suggest a female:

I apologize for the picture being so large, it was the clearest one I could find to show what I was talking about. Anyway, I don't know what's up with CollectA's orcas and accuracy of their gender  scratch Suspect  Shocked  but they are more detailed compared to others I have seen.

BTW, thank you Roger for your comment  Smile

Interesting discussion, being it a male or female. I saw that same photo you showed OC, but I thought the calf would be a female. Due to that small, heart shaped, marking? Well, in any case, I need to learn a lot more about orcas in general XD Oh ant thank you for the adult orca photos Very Happy

Thank you everyone for the nice comments. Funny to see the comments about Brutus.

LeeAnn: Hehehe XD Sometimes he sits on a desk or table, and gently mover his paw against a object he doesn't like. On the ground. And when I see it, he rolls around with his head, pretending he didn't do it and being as cute as he can be...  Rolling Eyes 

Hihihi, thank you Luka Very Happy

Roger: Oh yes indeed he knows that! Mostly used for his own advantage of course...

Susanne: Luckily he won't eat any of my whale, don't know the same if i would bring a fish to my collection  Laughing 

OC: It is more whale sitting Razz

You're welcome, as I said earlier CollectA's adult orca also has accuracy issues  Suspect confused But it does look better than the previous one:

I know, I have both versions and the older version's tail has details on it's tail that's similar to what a goldfish's tail looks like:

I'm like "Okay, they're mammals not fish"


 I've never been whale watching either Laughing Brutus would be like "Wait a minute, the ones my mom has at home are smaller!"

If you look close enough at the top picture of the older version, you can see the what I mean. Maybe CollectA was trying to make a senior citizen orca lol! Me, Jonas and NandO can all work for Collect since they have awesome repainting skills  cheers

You're welcome and thanks once more for your imput. Very Happy
I believe brands are not aware of sexual dimorphism in some animals. Apparently, to a not used eye or knowledgeable person, males and females do look almost the same and I suspect they also don't care with gender. So they use pictures of several animals mixing both sexes. So, these kind of topics are also interesting to developers, I guess. Very Happy

You're welcome!  Smile You're probably right about sexual dimorphism, not only that but I don't think young kids would be able to tell the difference.

Hey orcagirl26!
So nice to have more orca-minded people on here! Very Happy
I have been considering buying the CollectA adult and calf for a while, and this walk around definitely helps, so thanks!
Could you please repost the pictures of the different adult versions? I have noticed different versions online, but shops generally only seem to be using pictures of the (ugly!) older version. So, I am hesitant about making a purchase. From your experience, if I were indeed to buy the adult now, which version am I more likely to end up with?

I completely agree that the companies have a great deal to learn about the differences that exist between male and female orca and proper proportions in general. For instance, Papo did a great job bulking up their orca, which overall does really look like an adult male. They also placed the eye patch correctly, which is quite a good feature! cheers

However, they failed to create a proper looking head, as the model arrives with the lower jaw looking poorly finished and separate. Almost as if it can be closed, but it can't...

Yes, the Papo Orca looks little bit disabled with this little mouth. And the blowhol from the Collecta calf are too far in the back. Collecta, make a new Orca please.
´When i get all orcas from all brands, i will make a comparison photo.
