PostSubject: Walk around of the SSS yellow-eyed penguin!   Thu Oct 15, 2015 7:08 pm

The yellow-eyed penguin (Megadyptes antipodes), also known as hoiho, is a penguin native to New Zealand. It measures an average of 70 cm  and weighs between 5 and 8 kg.
It has pale yellow iris with black feather shafts. The chin and throat are brownish-black. There is a band of bright yellow running from its eyes around the back of the head.
Their feet are flesh coloured and they have a shrill sounding call. ... mine is mute. silent

There aren't many replicas of this species as we can see at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This figure was released by [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], a company of New Zealand, known for replicating figures representing local fauna. Curiously, this is only the 5th animal figure known from this company among our community and it is manufactured in a different way from other 4 that were already known. Figure is solide and made of a dense material, ressembling very much what we know from major brands.
Figure weighs 38g, the same as [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and only more 4g than the last [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
It measures slightly more than 7 cm working in a scale close to 1:10.

This is a very decent figure in my opinion and matches completely the standards of major brands, it seems almost impossible to find in Europe or North America as you can see in this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
We knew about it when we've found a catalogue picture in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and Jason ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]), immediately informed us that it was only possible to find on 2nd market once it was not available anymore.
So I have to thank [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], our NZ friend Brandom that found it and sent it to me. I'm glad he also found another to his collection.
I am sure, if it was an easily available figure, it was as much popular as other penguins from major brands.

As Christophe says: - Let's dance! Laughing

Notice the yellow eyes, well marked yellow strip, brown chin, clearly representating a male adulte. Also in previous pictures, the effort of the company with the color of the feet, often wrong in several penguin replicas.

Despite not owning any of the Colorata penguins, I was able of building a diversified group of penguin species mixing several brands.

Happy Kin Toys Adélie penguin
Science&Nature fairy penguin

It is missing in this picture the Maia & Borges Magellanic penguin and some others that don't represent different species from those here listed.

Nice walk around. Has it helped sort things out? On the SSS and S&N front?

Never heard of this penguin until now. study
So many species... drunken

I enjoy looking at the police lineup where the Emperor is making it very clear who the guilty penguin is.

Wonderful walkaround of a beautyful model of this strange and beautyful bird cheers

Simone, I don't think i have heard about it either, - but I am sure I have seen pictures and probably thought it was a sort of photoshop-cheating Laughing

Congratulations with this fantastic model, Roger, and thankyou for the great walkaround, including the extraordinarily fine comparison picture cheers

Hurray for Brandon for finding it for Roger, so he could show it to us Wink Applause

Well, the mistery was solved some time ago although we never splitted them on forum. :)

Thanks Brandom, that is STS spirit in its best! cheers
As you see, Christophe didn't mind to have one.
Actually, for many kids, it is just one more penguin so, any common species is interesting to them, for us collectors, it is a representation of an unusual species what increases its interest. So please, rescue as many as you can. Very Happy By the way, maybe you can find some more SSS figures we don't know yet? bounce

Thanks! Very Happy Unfortunately you cannot find it through these links. It was a member from New Zealand who found it for me.
This figure is not available anymore and it was distributed only in New Zealand and Australia, I guess. Sad
You'll need someone from New Zealand to check it in 2nd hand online sales to check if there is any for sale to acquire it and send it to you. I can't help more unfortunately. Sad
