In scale 1:20 they should be 6cm high at shoulders. Mine was in scale 1:22, so about 5,5cm at shoulder. Thank you for additional photos, I think the new bongo is really lovely!

The CollectA Eland is 8,5 cm at shoulder so, if bongo is similar size, the scale of that new bongo would be about 1:14, while Eland is still scale 1:20.

I saw bongos in Rotterdam zoo quite recently, they didn't look very big, in comparison with Elands or Nilgai or even Kudu for example. They are maybe heavier than many other antelopes but not very high at shoulders? study  

But 1:14 scale is nice also, some of the gazelles from toy companies are in this scale, as far as I remember Smile

The figure seems to me very well made, although perhaps a little large in scale? Anyway, I like it a lot ! Very Happy Very Happy

heavenly.

now all we need (we in the U.S. that is) is a distributor to deliver collecta figures to the U.S. Still no 2016 models from collecta available here.
