PostSubject: Battat Terra Cape Buffalo- a walkaround   Sat Dec 19, 2015 9:21 am

Here is the Cape buffalo from Battat's Terra series:





























With Mojö bull and Schleich calf:











The most significant aspect of this figure is that it works very well, in my opinion, as a female. The horns are more like a bull's, but everything else is quite cow-like. Very Happy

Nice model, the body is a little bit short but I agree it would be a nice little cow. One more on my far too long wishlist Laughing

The figure is decent but apparently not as nice as its counterparts. Though, very nice to go in a herd and it is interesting the detail of the oxpecker much in line with what Safari did. Very Happy

I found it at Target, while I was checking the Battat display to see which dinosaurs were in stock. The individual modern animals were all mixed together, apparently with a uniform price of $3.50. Very Happy

I didn't want to bog down the first post with my commentary, so I will now. geek  In person, this figure has really charmed me for some reason. It is notably free of the sculpting quirkiness that I've found somewhat off-putting in many of the other Terra models. Adjustment to the horn bases (for a female), and toning down the black mane would probably improve it. The horns are nice and sharp- I'm tempted to sharpen the horns of the Mojo model now. I think it also has potential for conversion to a forest buffalo. The bird is also a nice touch, even if the species is ambiguous. Has Safari removed the birds from their model? I don't own one but there seems to be two different versions pictured online. scratch

Thanks--That is where I thought you got it. I see them at Target here in Mass. but no buffalo. I will keep looking. I cannot find them online to purchase anywhere.

This was the first time I saw this buffalo, as well as a bison. They are probably newer models so I think you will find one.

Anyone know where I can get hold of this model?  Is someone able to get hold of this and a couple of others for me?

I got mine today at Target in the US today. But out of 3 shelves of animal models, I could only find ONE Cape Buffalo. I do like her. Other Terra models are toyish and the scales are all over the place. The cows/bulls are pretty good.

It's hard to find cape buffalo and bison in target. Congratulations!

I totally agree - it really does complement existing models as a female....although I always thought the male and female horns were identical? Is that not the case...

They're not identical at all, mainly the "boss" middle horns hump. Males have them often more curled as you can see in this picture below.

Male left, female right, externally linked from aratusa.com

I was looking through the bin at Target and this popped out at me. Like A.R. It is better in real life than in photos. Not hugely impressed with the rest of the range, but this model is a winner.
