PostSubject: CollectA 2015: WILDLIFE - Sulawesi Babirusa (88727)   Thu Nov 13, 2014 4:36 pm

I am proud to present my particular highlight from the 2015 wildlife collection - a Sulawesi Babirusa!

I have championed this species and have requested this from CollectA for the last 2 years and finally they agreed - thank you!

The tusks were tricky to sculpt but here it is in all it's glory - a mature male Babirusa. I have the prototype already and the detailing is incredible. Will post photos of that soon.

The skin colour was debated - some are dark greyish in colour and others are lighter but the lighter ones tended to be the dried mud on their bodies. The prototype I have is a lighter colour but the final model will be a darker grey as per the photo below. It took months to sculpt this but I hope the finished result will please everyone. Just wait till you get this model in your hands!!!

It's size will be similar to the CollectA Hungarian Pig so it will fit in with our wildlife collections perfectly. Very Happy

The first modern day Babirusa model has arrived.......

It's true, I find the body to small and thin but IT'S A BABIRUSA, so I'll buy this one :)

The torso in the official picture looks short, it is actually a little longer. It is a shame the official picture does not capture this.....

Thank you for more photos Numaan. Smile
There is something not exactly right with the anatomy of the rear legs, hindquarters and top line. Also underbelly line should be different. It's hard to explain in words for me, perhaps I will be able to find time and try doing some changes in Photoshop. study Probably that are not big things, just all together they make the impression for me that there is something not exactly natural in this model. scratch
Anyway, it's amazing to see babirusa in toy shape! cheers

Exactly first I also thought that on the legs something is strange. Do you really mean the belly or the breast? Also the head could be a bit smaller.

But I'm happy that a brand has done a babirusa.

Yes, I'm also happy to see babirusa as a toy! Very educative and I'm sure many kids will learn something new thanks to CollectA cheers cheers

I made several changes, I found mainly some proportions issues but also as I said before top line and belly line was not right. I'm sorry for the bad Photoshop, it looks quite messy but I hope you know what I meant with these changes.
