Considering the low prices of these figures, I have to say they are brilliant and full of drama. Very Happy
I agree about the penguin, it looks excelent, very expressive and with good shape. Though, I am not sure it is an emperor, the yellow chest and the back of emperors are usually deep black and this one looks grizzled.

A king penguin

Also king penguins have proportionally longer beaks and this one looks to have a very long beak indeed.  study

Chicks are also excelent, I love their interaction, what is thinking the one without food? Evil or Very Mad ;D
Chicks are clearly emperors. queen

If I am correct about the adulte, it remembers when the Schleich king penguin adopted the emperor chicks some years ago. geek

I love also the Adèlie penguin that shows how interesting are species choices of these sets, we can say it has a huge eyering or a long bill, but it is lovely and they haven't forgot the tuft of feathers on the top of the beak. cheers

Isn't the sea lion the one Christophe presented some time ago? Almost earless? scratch

Birds, fish, everything is just great. Actually many of them will enter my wish list! Thanks for excelent pictures and sorry for long comment. Very Happy

Thankyou, dear Paige Very Happy

Thankyou for your constructive and interesting comments, Croger !
You are right, - again a king has got emperor offspring Laughing Or perhaps they are not even related , as they did not come in the same box  Wink
Thankyou for the perfect photos for illustrating Applause

Luc, - yes, it is a shame they are not seen very often.

Congratulation Susanne for your newcomers and Hurray for Santa swinging Kosta cheers

Rogério, you are right, it is the sea lion and "weddell seal" I presented some times ago. The sea lion, as the sea elephant are "a bit" too skinny I guess but the pose and "facial" expression are very interesting.
The weddel seal is indeed an earless sealion Shocked and at least is very far from the original Suspect

The biggest disappointment on these sets was the Strap-toothed Whale. How a company can make such an unusual critter and miss it, the pose is so reptilian, like a mosasaur What a Face I know I'm playing the spoilsport but I would be so happy to see CollectA (for example) making one a more realistic one Wink

Congrats, Applause Applause.I have some of these models but they were marketed in the UK under a different name and they too were inexpensive but they never had the whale and skua! Sad and now the shop is closed down!!! Sad

I agree about the seal being far from the true thing and the big mistake with the whale pose. But as I commented, this set is very interesting with a good assortment of Antarctic species, cheap and with a brilliant scenic effect. Very Happy
Susanne, are all animals species marked? For example the emperor penguin? As you say, it is not from the same set, it doesn't need to be the same species as the chicks. Very Happy
That picture of the seal/sea lion is impressive! Shocked

You are wellcome, Roger Very Happy

At least here there is no doubt that the HKT-one is the Southern species, with the less long nose Wink

BTW, I just read that a Southern male can weigh up to 4 tons ! What a giant ! Shocked

Exactly Susanne, in average these figures are very good, I can't remember better figures under the same price range. Very Happy

Those are wonderful, and it's great they are an inexpensive line compared to so many that are getting too expensive for kids to buy.
Some great unusual species there.
