PostSubject: Size of elephants? Papo and Safari   Fri Aug 19, 2016 11:56 pm

G'day Everyone,

I've just started collecting and so far have 29 wild animal figurines  Very Happy , exclusively Papo and CollectA.

I'd like to add an African elephant or two to my collection.  elephant  elephant

So far I've narrowed down my choice to Papo (50010, 50041, 50192 - the last not yet available in Australia) and Safari (238429,270029, 295629).

I have to buy my animals online, sight unseen. I have no idea of the relative sizes of the Papo and Safari figures.  confused

I would very much appreciate any advice re the relative sizes of the two brands and  merits of each. Applause

The new papo one looks a bit smaller, but his proportions are better ...it is hard to compare scratch

Thank you, Susanne - that helps.  Very Happy

I take it I'm looking at Safari 270029 and Papo 50192.

So very similar size but quite different in colour. Mad

Susanne is always ready to help, incredible how she can find their figures so quickly in such a short time and take a picture! Shocked flower
I see you collect exclusively Papo and CollectA but you're acquiring some Safari elephants. That's pure collecting philosophy. Laughing
If you want elephants of a good quality sculpt and really large as they should be, you can find large figures on Papo and Safari range, they're a little more expensive but they worht it, please check [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] elephant
I may also open a topic comparing sizes between CollectA and Papo figures but you'll promise me that you will help me with pictures. Laughing Wink

Thank you for your help Rogério.  Very Happy

I don't think the LARGE Papo are available at Mini Zoo here in Australia. confused

As for helping with photos (haven't tried this yet with animal figurines), I'll do what I can. Twisted Evil

I don't know how distribution of large Papo figures is working, I only know it is available on MPV that is a German online shop

It is definitively better for you to wait that MiniZoo gets it.
About pictures, no pressure, just take things on forum go in a natural way. Soon or later you'll find a way to share pictures of your collection with us. Very Happy
