I recently received the 2015 CollectA's Amur Leopard. I was a little disappointed with the spots in comparison to the publicity photo that CollectA is using. What do people think? I do not like the large black spots on the hips.
Here is the Online publicity photo CollectA uses:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Here is what I got. (I got this image from Donny Ong's posting but this is exactly what my leopard looks like):[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Could have been an awesome model if it was painted a little better. But still, congrats!

Seanie...there's only one solution I can see...get
Kosta to customize it for you
That's unfortunate... the spots could easily been at least slightly better

Models are often better than official pics with CollectA, too bad this one is the exception

Mojö clouded leopard phenomenon? Well, maybe painting is not as poor as it is the clouded leopard but it seems the sculpt of this Amur leopard is not as nice as the clouded.
Well, as it happened with the Mojö friend, I want to add it to my collection.
Surely Kosta or Philipp can give an excellent painting to this figure!

Well, first, congrats Shawn and thank you for showing us this model :)
And thank you Laura and Roger, that you are trusting in my repainting skills :))
About this amur leo...I`m also kind of disappointed about the Collecta work on this model.
I was so happy , that we will have this beautiful and very rare animal in our collections...
I don`t like to write bad comments...
but yeah, the paint job it`s realy not good....this circles for spots ...
For the color of the fur...I think it`s ok.
Actually the black spots on the hips..they are realy dark on real and also big .... but not too big :[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
But this model has not only paint job problems....
also with the sculpture...with the body.., also with the head.
Hmm, very strange head ( my opinion ).
Check this out :[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This photo is also a great example for Amur leopard`s head :[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
At the end...I don`t know if I`ll have this model in my collection... but it`s a unique model...so maybe yes .. :)

I was so happy to have a model of a amur leopard, but sorry that hasn't anything to do with a amur leopard. Too bad, awful paintjob and it costs more than the other CollectA figures, too bad. I hope they update it for the next years.

Mine has the awful solid black spots on the back legs exactly like SeanieP - it really stands out, not in a good way. A shame as it's a nice model otherwise

I fully agree with Kosta... It's really dissapointing model. So sorry about it
