PostSubject: Bullyland's Leadbeater's cockatoo    Thu Oct 20, 2016 1:40 am

so I recently acquired this model to add to my small but growing bird collection and i was surprised by how big it is! Shocked  it completely dwarfs my other bird models from Safari and Schleich. Are most of the current Bullyland birds around this size.? the only other BL bird I have is a very old raven I bought ages ago that has long been discontinued. Is the great grey owl similar in size to the cockatoo? Im thinking of getting a couple more bullys so Cocky doesnt look so out of place with the smaller birds.

btw its a great looking model! Very Happy

Congratulations with you new cockatoo Very Happy

Yes, the owl is also quite large, and so is for instance the toucan.

You can see them compared to John the zookeeper [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] .

oh yeah, looks like the more recent Bully birds are larger too. I dont see the old black grouse in the list, I would have loved to have gotten that one too.

I agree with the way you're seeing things. If the cockatoo looks too large, so let's find some other large figures! Very Happy
Lapland owls are relatively large owls with a 150 cm wingspan (60 inches). I don't think it is too large and it goes very well with some other bird figures. See below from my collection a comparison between the old Schleich Eurasian eagle owl and the mentioned Bullyland great grey owl. Very Happy
I don't think you'll find easily another figure representing this species. scratch

I like the pose... looks as its swooping down about to snatch something on the ground. Also its the one owl other than the snowy that reminds me of Harry Potter for some reason. It reminds me of winter. Smile

there aren't too many large birds of comparable size to Bullys from other companies. Need to check AAA, I usually forget about them when thinking about figures. scratch

Roughly what scale would you say these larger Bully birds are? I'm always excited to find critters that are passably in scale with my Traditional Breyers.

These birds are marketed as 1:12 scale (Breyer Classic scale). Though, many of them do not match that scale. The great grey owl is close to it however but it also works in 1:9 scale so I think you can use it with your traditional Breyer but always as a representative of a smaller specimen. I believe there are other that you can use. study
