25 cm would be impressive.
It looks really good, the fur is very detailed.
I like it!

*puts on wishlist*

I prefer in a smaller size, but if it's not a huge model it will be in my shelves for sure. Sometimes I think Collecta is not clear with scales. We will see.

So far, CollectA's Prehistoric mammals have all been Deluxe Size.
So I guess this one will be big as well.

I think on the DTF it was said that it is 1:20- I'm not completely positive, though.

Interesting release. The design is very good and they wanted to show that it is an animal related with horses what is interesting. I have the Bullyland brother so probably I won't get it but it is always easier to say than to resist. Laughing
I think that 1:12 scale is a mistake once that is the scale of Deluxe sized horses, it is related with horses but not a predecessor of horses so no reason to be so huge when compared with other prehistoric mammals of the company. Almost surely it will be a 1:20 scale as said before. Very Happy

The Bullyland is a Chalicotherium, it is a different genus Rogério... So you have no excuse, Go for it cheers

You're right, they are both chalicotheres, they belong to the same family but fortunately they are far from being brothers. Once again CollectA made a correct choice. I'll get the Amur leopard that is just a subspecies, so it is not easy to find an excuse to not get an animals from a different genus. Very Happy

This is a fantastic animal !! I ve always loved it since I was a kid ! But sincerely speaking I thought that " Moropus" was the old name for " Calicotherium"... Embarassed Embarassed can you pls , Christophe and Roger point out the differences between the two species ?

I ll buy it for sure hoping anyway that scale is 1:20

Paolo, I hope Christophe checks it once he is much more expertized about prehistoric animals than I am. Very Happy
I think the confusion is because both belong to family chalicotheriidae, thus both are chalicotheres.
In that family, among other genera, we can find Chalicotherium and Moropus.
Any genus have several species though they represent different groups of animals.
Chalicotheria were from what we call Old World (Europe, Asian and Africa), while Moropus were from North America, a kind of New World chalicotheres.
In terms of morphology the easiest way to identify them is that chalicotherium has forelimbs much longer than hindlimbs while the size difference in moropus is not so extreme.
So, chalicotherium had a much more sloping downward backs than moropus making them walk like gorillas.
Moropus can also be distinguished by their longer neck. There are many more differences but I guess those are enough to identify them. Very Happy
