PostSubject: PNSO Family Zoo-large animal figures   Mon Nov 07, 2016 1:41 am

Forum member Melekh first made note of these in another post but I thought I'd dedicate a separate page as this is a new series.

Just a few days ago PNSO added some new present day animal figures to Amazon.  These include an African elephant, common hippo and White rhinoceros.  
The product dimensions on Amazon show they will be large scale vinyl models similar to the PNSO dinosaur line.  

I have not been able to find additional information, if anyone knows more please share here.

These are amazing looking animals! I'm so glad this company has their own section now since they do consistently good work, both of modern animals and prehistoric life.

Animals now relisted on all European Amazon sites.  I have ordered all three (No spending for a year now, I have blown my budget ha!).

I asked the company on how they ship to the UK/Europe citing concerns about them quoting high figures on the customs label.  Yes I know it is cheeky but I have been stung before and UK customs are very greedy in calculating tax based on the item value AND shipping value.  PNSO have assured me that it will be fine so I look forward to receiving the items soon with no customs charges phew!

I have also asked them to pass on my comments to expand the range and produce other larger scale wildlife animals such as Reticulated Giraffe, Grevy's Zebra, an Okapi and of course antelopes such as Kudu, Gemsbok and Sable.......having a large scale highly detailed antelope such as these would be fantastic (I hold no such hope of Safari making them and certainly in such outstanding detail and quality for sure).

Unfortunately after seeing a few more angles of the elephant it is not as accurate as I had hoped.
But for those interested here are some additional images from Tao Bao.  The elephant is not to scale with the rhino and hippo, it is too small in comparison.
The hippo looks much better here than in the official images (which look too dark and desaturated).  Here you can see a nice pink pigment on the figure.
Same for the rhino, the colours look better here than in the official photos though the front left carpal (wrist joint) looks odd.

The birds and base are not included. The Kaiyodo elephant looks to be in the correct scale with the rhino and hippo.

The rhino's carpal (wrist joint) is oddly shaped on the left front leg

It should look more like this shape

Great photos! Thanks for posting! :-)

You are right about the elehpant's size. I was hoping it would fit into scale with the rhino and hippo but they all look similar in size. Not sure why the elephant costs a little more.
