In my collection there are lots of mute swans, and a few black swans - but HURRAAAAY ! Thanks to Brett, now I have my first  whooper swan too  cheers  cheers

Again, - EIKOH's models are not fabulous like for instance Kitan Club , but they are beautyfully sculptured, small models, and most of them have this special "something" Very Happy

This morning the sun sent light sidewards in, but without the rays actually reaching the place where I had put the swan, and I could see that it made the structure of the feathers show quite nicely  sunny
Of course my immediate reaction was : I must show this to the friends in STS  Wink  Laughing  

So here we go : The EIKOH whooper swan  Very Happy

Oh what a beauty <3 Maybe they aren't as good as the Kitan Club figures, but they are absolutely charming. Again, congratulations with this beautiful model Very Happy I checked the list of Eikoh figurines on TAi and there sure are some I really need to have in my collection! Just look at that fennec fox.. *Drools away Razz*

It is great that you share with us. Eikoh are for sure not as good as some of other Japanese brands but their figures are very attractive. They have a kind of European market design although they're not sold in Europe.
Of course I like the figure, mainly the fact that it is a whooper swan and not a mute swan again.  Did you know that the heaviest whooper swan ever weighed was found in Denmark?
Individuals can be distinguished by their black markings on bill, though, after watching some pictures, it seems they use to have the tip of the bill black?

Exactly !!!
Their size is also great, - and I like that they are not as fragile as some of the other Eastern brands Wink

Thank you for the walkaround Susanne, as the walrus I like very much this model.

I agree with Rogério, the weakest part of this model is the bill. Mine have the same problem.

Hi Susanne / Christophe

Can someone please post a photo of the Whooper Swan next to a branded (Schleich, Papo) swan model just for size comparison? I would appreciate it.

thank you
