PostSubject: A variation of the roaring Papo lion!   Tue Nov 01, 2016 6:40 pm

So last week me and my boyfriend went to a city and went shopping.
One toy store sold some Papo. I grabbed a ring-tailed lemur and I also saw a roaring lion...
I already have the roaring lion, but this one was different I thought. I bought it to see if it really was different.

And it is! Look!

Left one is my old roaring Papo lion, right one is the new one.

That's an interesting variation, this lion was also sold outside of wildlife series, together with human figures but I can't remember the exact series. That's a very interesting variation, thanks for showing! Very Happy

Looks like tgis is an immitation figure. I ordered a papo lion from amazon and received this variation figure. If you look under the lion's bellt it will say the brand name as "papp" not "papo". Clearly a fake!!

Mxb is right o.0 Welcome here Very Happy

On the belly of the lion is indeed the Papp 2014 mark.
But I bought mine from a store that sells legit Papo all the time.
So never crossed the thought of it being a fake trough my mind.

But I do not think this is a fake.
As it has the little black numbers on its belly, there is a mark (even written wrong XD) and the lower jaw is glued on.
I could be wrong of course, but most fakes I have seen do not tent to be that good in making a mark, adding a number and adding details like gluing on the lower jaw.
And if it is a 'real' fake, that it is a darn good one o.0 Laughing

But on the other hand, Papo would not making the mistake to type Papp on the belly of its lions, right? scratch study

Karin, could you check if their weight is the exact same? Often these figures are made of a slightly different pvc formula resulting in different weights. study

Papo lion is 123 grams and the Papp Lion is 106 grams.
So that is a big difference for a small model.

Yes, just as I suspected and the original is heavier as usual. That's a difference relevant enough to indicate that the manufacturing is not the same. Thanks for providing that information, now we have to find what is Papp and if you see a PAPP fox just let me know. Laughing

I hope to get a reply from Papo soon, but I don't have my hopes up XD The thing that bothers me the most is the fact that I bought it in a store that sells legit Papo.
It stood in the same display, together with the ring-tailed lemur with baby on back that I bought the same day, and it has Papo on its belly.
So how come that just this lion is a Papp and the others are Papo?

Laughing will let you know when I find a Papp fox :3
Searching for Papp results in a very catchy song that get stuck in your head very fast... lol!
