That's fantastic! Interesting to see that the new zebra is ranked in a slightly higher price, that's more than fair once it represents a huge challenge in terms of manufacturing. It is also great to see that mini spinosaurus is a very cheap piece, so I'll much probably add a little dino to my collection when possible. :)

The news was posted by Dean early this year, Dean has stocks for 2016 including the mid year releases... i have not connected with him for some months . I get my collectA from Minizoo in Oz... since the distributor in India seems to have closed shop too Mad

Received CollectA's NILGAI antelope today, and it is a beautiful figure. However, if I have one small critique, it is that the lower legs are quite soft and bendy, and on my figure they curl inwards. The figure still stands-up okay, but it's ankles and hooves look a little deformed. Other than that, FANTASTIC !!! :) I also have CollectA's HIROLA antelope on the way, which I am looking forward to receiving in the next few days ! :) :)

A little trick you could try to get the ankles and hooves straight and won't hurt the figure while you try:

Sometimes you can get legs straight by using the hot water blowdryer/cold water freezer method.
You dip the legs in very, very hot water for some time. (They will get soft.) You can also use a blowdryer for this.
Just make sure the legs are really soft and bendy. Don't burn or melt them! And watch your fingers!
Take them out of the water and keep them in the position you would like them to be.
Make sure you have some way to keep the legs postitioned for at least a few seconds.
It can be either a tool, aluminium foil or your fingers. Just make sure you don't burn your hands when you take the legs out of the very hot water!
Then run the tap with cold water. And quickly hold the legs under the cold water. The plastic will go hard again. You can also use your freezer for this.

Congrats! My Nilgai is okay. I think it's a miss-product.

Sometimes it is hard to keep a good balance between a massive body and slender legs. When pvc is not hardened enough, legs start to bend under the weight of the figure. It happens sometimes but, rarely, with my CollectA figures but the compromise of realism worth a little manufacturing imperfection. :)

Roger explained very well.
Perhaps you can contact them and see if they would replace it.

Its sorted Donny, the customs opened box and they repacked it .. They make a mess sometimes .. Got two hirolas one is safe ! One was 'injured' ... The shipping box gets badly damaged in transit..and then thrashed open in customs Crying or Very sad Evil or Very Mad

The grevys zebra is a masterpiece !

Yes, the customs, trouble-maker. I choose Australian Post EMS when I buy form MiniZoo. It's more expensive but faster (about a week to 10 days) and more secure.

Just received word from my supplier CollectA US that 2016 releases will not be available for the US market until 2017, if at all. This is very disappointing.

Better late than never, Chad. Though, with so many new exciting figures from CollectA, it is a pain to wait all this time.
