Thank you Anasta :)
Here comes the photos.. Wink
So, like Jarda pointed for his rhino, the manufacturers mark is lion head logo with no additional text (only "made in PRC 2014").
I`m starting with walkaround from the beautiful hyena:

I realy like this small hyena model :) The paint job is not so spectacular, but it`s not bad :)
I realy like the face..:)
The material it`s similar to Collecta models..the texture too :)
What do you think about this model? :)

The second model is the leopard, which is painted strange...a bit like a leopard and cheetah..

Small walkaround of him :

The model it`s interesting, especially with the posture. Like sculpture, I don`t like it very much, it has a bit strange hind legs ... scratch
What do you think...? How will look`s as a repainted leopard ? :)

Congrats, Kosta!
Hyena is WONDERFUL! Paintjob isn't perfect, but very accurate. I liked all things in that hyena: proportions, face, details... I already told about my wolf that he has very detailed face: cheekbones, eyes, texture at all.
Leocheetah looks ok. Not bad, not really good. We can see accurate texture, very good proportions, but I saw one of the roughest mistakes — the fifth toe on hind legs. What? Why did you do this, chinese sculptor? And it looks very strange about paintjob: leopard proportions + cheetah color scratch Not cool.
If to be honest, I'm not impressed of panda. The same story: not bad, not wonderful. Of course, I remember that they're small, but it's just my opinion.

Thanks Kosta for your nice HONGSHAO figures! Very Happy
They seem to be almost the same size as the "original" Nayab figures. Hyena has very good proportions and is for me, by far, the best of that trio. The opposite for leopard, there's a weird proportion between front and back legs. It is droping backwards almost like a hyena, it is quite visible when comparing with the Mojo black panther. This is a leopard with cheetah face, I believe they wanted to rosets although they shouldn't be solide. The tail is clearly also not from a cheetah.
For a repaint, surely not a cheetah and I go more for a leopard than a jaguar. Very Happy

Thank you Roger :)
You are absolutely right about the leo-cheetah .... I also don`t like these strange proportions..
I`m not shure if I`ll repaint it....I`ll see in the time :)
But Jarda showed us two photos of this model , with diferent paint job...which is strange... Perhaps somebody already try to repaint it... scratch
You are also right about the size.... I have here the Nayab black panther...and it is just a bit bigger then this Leopard :)

Thank you Kosta. Very Happy Frankly, I find your leopard very interesting as a collectible, not because it represents a correctly replicated animal because we know it is not true. But this is a very unusual brand and the way the painting was mixed from different species, give it a certain pictoresque touch. I know it will look far better repainted but the mould will never make it work realistic enough for your taste. There are lots of better moulds of leopards that worth more your time and effort. I hope your leopard is not angry with me, tell him that I like him as he is once he is different from all other leopard toys I know. Very Happy

For the rhino, could you take some pics of the head? It would probably solved the species question.

Thank you once more, Kosta, for your links to AliExpress. I ordered giraffe, panda, gnu and retriever figures today. Of course I will share photos on STS after their arrival Wink

Thank you Jarda cheers  

My Hongshao animals arrived - I like these but the giraffe has some stability issues...

The pics will not help solving the mystery I guess: The body has White rhino characteristics but the mouth is a Black rhino mouth... Maybe a new hybrid? Wink

I think Christophe is right. Surely the sculptor used pictures from both species and it maybe explains why that rhino is ambiguous. Very Happy
Nice new figures, remember that Papo, a major brand, had also lots of stability problems with their first generation giraffes. Very Happy

Well, as these figures now are also sold by PNSO under Yniao brand name. We can find species names to the two ambiguous lampard and B&W rhino. So, the lampard is a cheetah and the rhino is a black rhino. Laughing
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Very Happy
I renamed the leopard on TAI to cheetah, I hope it is correct now. Very Happy

Ok, so instead of Hongshao , we have to call these models : Yniao, right ?

Actually from were did we come with this name Hongshao ...?
If I remember correct , Roger first  mentioned this name ...  is it because of the Aliexpress seller ..?
I bought my models from him ..and he was call the name of the brand : Hongshao...
But if it`s because of him, then maybe it`s not correct, because, he also called other models with the same name.. Now I see, that he removed this name...
And also, when I asked him about name of brand, of other models, he told me, that it is his brand and he makes them, which was not correct, because other sellers also are selling these models ...
So on Aliexpress, you can get very wrong information and sometimes very funny :)

Yes, I obtained that name from the Aliexpress seller you linked. It was identified as brand: HONGSHAO ... a very convincent name for a Chinese brand. Laughing So, without any official evidence, it is hard to accept it as being true so you may be right actually and we have to find a good name. Often, these figures are just made by one of the several Chinese manufacturers, without any brand and they are used to be sold under several brand names. I don't know if it is the case but I have something interesting to share.
Yiniao figures are marked like that according with Tim [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that owns some of them:
"CE
PNSO
Made in PRC 2015"
They don't have the logo with the lion head as those we know from you, Kosta and some other members. So, we have the same figures branded in different ways. We need a active Chinese member on forum. Very Happy

I think that this sounds very logically Roger :)
So, at least we have PNSO marked models .... and this is Yniao.
We need to find the name of the mark with Lion head :) but this will be more difficult.

If Hongshao is not a company brand, it will be really hard to find what these figures are. I think there is some consistency between these wild animals, the farm sets with the white rabbit, cat, chicken, llama, the Tibetan mastif, Dachshund, bulldog, etc. They are surely from the same manufacturer and marketed in several ways. Some more participation from Chinese members would be certainly a bonus and you are right, we need to find the meaning of that lion head logo. cat
