PostSubject: CollectA 2015: WILDLIFE - Nile Crocodile - Leaping (88725)   Thu Nov 13, 2014 4:28 pm

This is the largest wildlife model in terms of model size being released this year. This is the Nile crocodile. I was hoping that we create the Slender nosed or Saltwater Crocodile but the Nile was created by a customer special request.

The pose chosen is a dynamic one and of a crocodile leaping to catch it's prey from out of the water - a bird perhap's? Or meat dangled on a stick by a zoo keeper? For me it is an impressive pose and the sculpt is quite good although you may not be able to fully appreciate it in the official picture. This is based on a mature male bull.

Enjoy!

CollectA does not cease to impress. cheers Once again very well done. I appreciate that CollectA finds the balance between collectors' wants and dealer/childrens' wants.

Very nice!
I like bold figures like this.
Maybe not a new species, but at least different from the rest.

Perhaps the croc is just chuckling or laughing really loudly?

Cool figurine, and such a bold pose!
I'm a fan of crocodile figurines, so the more poses and species - the better.

Many crocodilians are adept at leaping out of the shallows by a river bank (for example) to snatch unwary pray resting in tree or bush branches above the water. Another outstanding new release by the preeminent major brand... Applause

Well, I can't call it really a leaping croc, maybe a singing Roger as people is here suggesting is more adjusted. Crocodiles have no enough strength in their limbs to jump so they put all their weight in their tails. Of course it cannot be made in toy shape without a base. Though, I am not saying that the pose is impossible and probably it is just an approach. No new species but very interesting and obviously much better than previous version that I believe will be retired. If it is standard sized in terms of price range, I'll consider getting it. Very Happy

It is XL size (code grey), so the price should be the same as the horses or giraffe or giant eland.
The email from CollectA said it would have movable jaw.
