I already voted and I am somewhat impressed but not completely surprised with the current results. It is still early and I hope people keeps voting even the winner turns obvious. Thanks for opening the final poll, Christophe! Very Happy

I'm surprised that so far the Trex hasn't gotten many votes! Surprised  It is so realistic! bounce But I can certainly see why the Snow Leopard is favoured Wink bounce bounce bounce

Wish I knew of a store which carries all these brands so I could see them in person!  A photo only shows one side; sometimes creatures which look great from the side the photo is taken doesn't look as good from another perspective.  <sigh>  Que pasa .....

I'm a bit surprised that the snow leopard is winning. It seems like such an oddly proportioned model, and the face looks strange. scratch

I've heard this before, but I guess I don't see it. The snow leopard is not my favorite model of 2014 -- it's not even my favorite Papo model of 2014, I think that would be the Hippopotamus Cow. But I still find the Snow Leopard to be a real beauty.

I suspect this is more a matter of taste. I find the Rebor Tyrannosaurus to be unpleasantly proportioned and odd-looking. But I recognize that it's an extremely well-done model. Just not my style.

Maybe we could translate it like... It has a very strong personality? Wink

I dislike this Trex too, for the same reasons What a Face

So that's why I love these discussions and polls. I like the snow leopard but it is not among my favorites for 2014, though I recognize its appealing design and vibrant personality in a very detailed figure. The same opinion is valide to REBOR T-Rex. I like both figures, just not my absolute favorites. Interestingly I accept much better this kind of "show design" in an extinct than in an extant animal. Papo T-rexes are in my opinion as much monstruous and bizarre than it is the REBOR figureand it seems more or less consensual among collectors. Maybe because REBOR puts the Museum tag and Papo not... ??? scratch
Concluding, my snow leopard is the Papo one and if I wanted a large T-rex, my choice was surely between the last Papo and this REBOR. Paradoxal? Perhaps! geek

Actually, when you look at real snow leopard pics, you will find that the Papo have very good proportions. Wink

I have a strange feeling I know who sculpted the T Rex.  Last year I stopped by a hobbyist's house and thought I saw the prototype for the REBOR T Rex.  But, I could be wrong.  I know the woman and her husband sculpt many dinosaurs but have no idea if they sell them to a toy company.

My least favorite of the finalists is the Mojo Arabian mare in foal.  She does appear to be in foal but she's too heavy-looking to be an Arabian.  Now, if they said it was a Morgan or Morab mare - that I could see.  This IS a pregnant Arabian mare:

That could be it. The tail just seems to big to me. Like you said, maybe he just has. Strong personality. Laughing

Most of the models we collect, are menat for children 3 years old and up.
So these can't have thin legs, which can harm a small child falling on it Wink

Also, - there are many Strains of Arabian horses.
When holding this one in your hand, there is NO doubt that it is an Arabian horse, - short back, high tail, tiny ears and nose, wide forehead etc . Very Happy

So many people think Arabians have to be super light to be pure blooded. Arabs can be much heavier than what we're seeing in today's halter classes. They don't have to be very light. Smile

I know that! Just look at any Polish or Russian bred Arabs; they're heavier than the Egyptian types. It's just I don't see the Mojo Arab mare as an Arab. I think Safari and CollectA make better, more typy Arabs.

The legs of the Arab mare had to be sculpted that way, mostly because of the technology and material it was produced from. Some companies use another kind of plastic or even a bitbigger scale which let them make legs proportionally thinner.  In this case it was a minimal required thickness.

I also would prefer to see more thin legged final version of this Arab mare, that's why I sculpted another version of this horse model, cast in resin. And resin version has about 30% thinner legs. It was possible thanks to different technology. (Resin version has also no fur texture which is not typical for Arabians but was required by the company, although in the winter Arabians also can have thick fur, if they are kept whole year outside in the colder climate, so, some may claim the Mojo Arabian is a one in winter fur Wink )  

The model of Arabian mare from your link is also made in resin, and is a bigger scale, that two facts allowed for making the thin, typical Arabian legs. Smile I think comparing it to PCV toy is a bit hard, these are two different "classes".

Thanks to all involved in compiling this poll, it's been a lot of fun! A little sad for me that there are no monkeys in the final, but I did vote for two non-primates in the initial rounds, and it looks like one of those is going to be named Figure of the Year! Very Happy Applause bounce

I voted for the Kitan Club seal, which is a model form another category on its own, not even to compare with the Papo snowleopard, which is nice, but for me from another category, much less then the Kitan Club model, which is the case for most Japanese models when it come to quality i guess...

I'm a bit surprised that the snow leopard is winning. It seems like such an oddly proportioned model, and the face looks strange. scratch

Actually, when you look at real snow leopard pics, you will find that the Papo have very good proportions. Wink  

I agree . My take on the Papo Snow Leopard is that it is perfect in every way. I think it is about the most accurate and realistic extant animal figure I have ever seen by far. It s stunning.

Did the Papo Hippopotamus Cow win? That was my favorite of the year. I hope it did.

Seriously though, the Papo Snow Leopard is fantastic. And CollectA released so many spectacularly good models, it was kind of overwhelming.
