The wings look really strange. It don't looks bad but there would be so much more species that was never made before. 
LeeAnn what about to post that on the general Collecta 2014 toppic? I think Numaan will also post something like this.

Hi guys

someone has beaten me to it so I wont repost the same pictures.......

This species was again created by request from an African supplier but I was not involved with this one. A balance has to be kept between supplier and collector requests as well as those from CollectA themselves. Perhaps we are so used to seeing unique animals from CollectA that we are surprised by the creation of a more common species. I think it is good to read and feel everyones comments. You are all so passionate! Smile Smile Very Happy

This time CollectA was not very original with penguin species choice. I know it is not the ever made Emperor penguin but one more African penguin when there are still many species waiting for a replica. meanwhile I've read Numaan comment and everything got clear. It is anyway relevant that CollectA made 4 penguins and all different species, that's great! Very Happy
Numaan, you have moderation tools in that section so you can easily decide the best way to present figures. Very Happy

Hi LeeAnn

No no, it is not rude, I did not read it like that.  Dont worry, I am not a sensitive person, what you wrote it fine and funny and so I am teasing back :-)

With regards to the comment about a wild sheep/goat....alas one has been created but it is not good enough to be released this year and has been delayed until 2016 along with other animals.   The release numbers this year is far smaller than previous years.

Would it be possible to get a general idea of how many items they are releasing this year? If not I understand, just curious. With all the layovers on figures from CollectA this year it sounds like 2016 should be a fantastic one.
As for the flippers, it does look like the texture ends abruptly. However if you google pics of them that is actually how they look.  I don't mind the species though, its welcome in my collection of small penguins.

As for Numaan's avatar... it has quite a curl to it... I would be floored if it ended up being a tooth from a babirusa. However, it could very well be anything.... antelope.... wild bovine..... drunken

The wings look strange because they are photoshopped into the picture.
Take a close look.
It's not even the same material.

At least we can hope for 2016.

Even on the original, the wings are looking strange Shocked  Wink

Nevertheless, they look better on the original  Laughing

I hope it will be for this one like it was for the Saola: A very bad official pic and a fantastic model  cheers

Agreed!
CollectA has proven by now that they make wonderful animals.
I'm confident that the final figure will be marvelous.

3.8 cm L x 5.8 cm H (1.7" x 2.6")
So it's about the same size as the Rockhopper and Gentoo.
