Wonderful walkaround of this very interesting model cheers

Somebody mentioned that a crocodile can not lift himself  on the front legs.
I imagine this croc is standing mainly submerged under water.. but on this photo it is close :

Thank you for sharing Kosta sunny

I'm not a big fan of articulated mouthes and I hope we won't see an articulated models tidal wave affraid Laughing

Like Papo afew years ago, CollectA is improving its official pics and I seriously don't know if it is a good thing. scratch The head and neck joints are not visible on catalogue Wink

Nevertheless, the things I like very much on this one (the real toy) is the original pose (not easy to find for a croc) and the painting, especially when you compare with the Papo. Very Happy

Thank you Kosta, again an awesome walkaround! Very Happy
I really think thats an other really poor figure, if you compare the catalogue pictures with the real ones. I'm happy that I didn't ordered it till now, it only would be a waste of money. Crying or Very sad

The Papo and also the Schleich one are better.

CollectA wanted to make something different and they did!I am not an enthusiast of this crocodile but he represents something new in this hobby. Martin already showed how to use it perfectly and defintively it is a figure full of drama. An interesting acquisition in my opinion!
I still love best of all the Papo crocodile despite the poor painting.
It seems also, that new Schleich crocs are more interesting than the poor previous representative and Mojo has also a decent croc.
But, as I said previously, this one have something new that is its pose and turns it special among all others. It is also the best shelf toy because of his posture. Very Happy
By the way, your pictures are really great and comparisons are very helpful! Very Happy

Great picture Susanne, I think it was me who told it. scratch
In normal circunstances, crocs don't use their limbs to jump or attack, mainly their front limbs, after watching your picture I watched some videos of humans feeding crocs and surprisingly for me, they can stand, even if it is for a short time, using their front limbs to support. It is also true that they often don't use them and lift their heads only using their torso and front limbs fall naturally under their bodies. This figure is clearly using their limbs to support itself but now I am convinced that it can happen.
When they want really leap, they use mainly their tails and they're much more agile than what we think, they even can dance when Kosta is the teacher. Laughing
By the way, just watch this video in slow motion and see how graceful they are. Very Happy

Yes I'm agree Rogério. It is something special, but (for me as an non-repainter) it looks just cheap. I really like jaws that you can open but these need to bee well done. And you can't just tell your costumers that they will recive such an awesome, wonderful crocodile and finally just recive something completely different.

By the way Roger, thank you for the video. I knew that crocs were some interessing animals, but now I'm impressed. Shocked

I absolutelly agreed with everithing what Kiki said.. and now again, I agree with everithing , what you are saying Roger :)
When I saw this model on the official photo, I realy liked it, becouse of this interesting and dinamic pose.
Then I saw from other photos, that it is actually with movable jaw and I was a bit disappointed.
For shure it look`s better on the official photo, but still it was on my wish list and now I`m happy to have it :)
Of course my favorite model is the Papo one, although the paint job it`s not great, but everything else is just amazing. It is one of my favorite models :)
About this Collecta Crock, You were right to be doubt, that maybe the poze is not very correct, but like we saw on the photo from Susanne, it is actually possible :)
And wow, this video is sooo cool cheers Thank you for sharing :))

Bryan, I understand you're disappointed with the figure and this is a forum, we give our opinions in a honest way. But you know each collector admires different things in a figure. I love the detailed sculpt of Papo figure, some dislike it because it is poorly painted and it is indeed. Others love to enjoy a more dramatic or scenic style, some others give more importance to the painting even if sculpting is completely off.
I am sure this croc matches Kosta taste and I don't find it a bad figure, there are only just other crocs that I like best.
What I am really sure is that I can enjoy these fabulous walk arounds with excellent pictures from several angles. They help me and several other collectors to take a good decision. So, I have a huge admiration to all members that take their time to make fabulous topics like these. :)

Thank you for the video Rogério Very Happy Crocs are great dancers, singers and I learned some are even poets Laughing Too bad soem people only see teh qulity of their skin.

By the way Kosta, as I looked at your last walkarounds, I was thinking that, after the three bears, it is time to make another music band pictures. The "open Big Mouth Choir" with Papo Hippo and croc plus CollectA Croc and Great white shark Laughing

Well, I think the perfect quality of Kost's photos makes us think that the seams are wors than they really are scratch

The croc made a stop-over here in Denmark, and I did not notice anything...or am I wrong, Kosta ? Do I just need to clean my glasses ??? Laughing Laughing

lol! you are right Susanne, you don`t need to clean the glasses Very Happy

I think, the paint job is good for a mass product ..it is more detailed then the Papo one.
Of course it`s not like from the official photo... but like Kiki said, Papo also is doing the same.
The poze is very interesting, which makes the model interesting.
Only the movable jaw it`s not made it perfectly, the space between the parts is a bit too big.
But this crock feels happy in my collection :))

Nice walk around. Interesting and ambitious. But I would have been sad if I bought that expecting the catalogue picture. Thankfully it wasn't in my plans
