Thanks Sergey :) I was considering either to buy Schleich or Papo, but Schleich mammoth has ugly eyes and hair on the trunk! Shocked Laughing

Thanks, Christophe. Well, the hardness of the tusks wasn't the main concern... I was just curious.
Thanks for the pix, too!

Eventually... Papo won in the competition. cheers
I just ordered it online - the perfect Christmas gift!
The superiority of the Papo sculpt and its "dramatic" appearance won my heart.
I like figures with artistic touch on them... Cool

I'm sure you'll like it a lot Gabe. Both Papo's are amazing. The new one WAS my favorite, but then I finally got the old one and... I don't think I need to say more :)

...By the way my friends... There are many species of mammoth (this gorgeous animals). Look at the pictures! But unfortunatly all brands makes only one - "tundra mammoth" (Mammuthus primigenius)... So I think we can use different models by different brands as "different species" (because they have different scale and image)! Wink Wink Wink Laughing Laughing Laughing

Two weeks ago I saw this Papo Mammoth at the local store here in Singapore and I was amazed and bought it without any doubt. Initially, I thought the Schleich's counterpart was better. Until I went home in the Philippines last week and have a look at them together. Papo is actually is better, bigger and taller in size. The tusks are soft and bendable and the body is not as hard as the Schleich's.

Here are some of the pictures that I took just now:

Thank you Ron for the pics. Very Happy

So I'm not alone Wink . The Papo mammoth is indeed far better than the Schleich, it is even better than the commercial pics of... The Papo mammoth Laughing

I like the good, old Schleich, of course, but must admit he looks like that : Good old and tired ganddad beside the Papo one .

Great pictures of great figures cheers flower

The Schleich Mammoth looks like the Snuffleupagos(Sesame Street)...
Actually I prefer the Safari LTD Mammoth!
