PostSubject: Toy Major Giraffe - great big size - walkaround by Kosta   Sat Mar 04, 2017 3:03 am

I found this huge friend in Bulgaria, from bulgarian seller, for almost no money..
It was with bended legs, maybe because it was staying in a bag for a long time, but I fixed them with hot and cold water..
and now this fellow stays straight and proud cheers

It is from 1994.
I think, it is a very realistic model ...with some small flaws ..but very beautiful :)

Here it is :

Even before I saw the comparison pics I thought "what a big citizen", with his legs seriously stuck into the ground and his stern look, he looks like the giraffes godfather. You should name it Vito Wink

Christoph, not Christophe Laughing presented [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] some time ago too. It is really a huge figure but, if we take in consideration the size of a real giraffe, it is just perfect to use with most lions from major brands. Christoph tells it is almost 34 cm tall, so, using the 1:15 scale usual in Papo and Mojö lions, it means this figure could represent a 5 metters tall giraffe... a perfect size! Very Happy I think you acquired a quite impressive figure for almost no money. cheers

Wow, what a nice catch. Will you repaint it ? That takes for sure a lot of time, but the result would be
absolutly great. Basketball cheers How big is this model ? For example giraffe by Vanishing wild is about 32cm high.

Oh yes, ...one day .... brushes will dancing on it Very Happy
but before that, many other models are waiting ..still...for me, for friends here.
And also 2 other giraffes, request from A STS friend..

Yvette, Roger is right, the Giraffe is 34 cm tall, so it is almost the same as the Vanishing wild :)

Roger, I think, I think you are also right about the scale ...maybe this Giraffe is a bit bigger for the Papo and Mojö lions, but they can work together.
I was also hoping for that and I checked some real photos with Giraffe and lions,
Here is a photo with the model, together with the Papo and Mojö lions :

Great picture of real giraffe vs lions. Very Happy Yes, lions and lionesses are big animals but a giraffe easily dwarf them. My calculation for 1:15 scale was for a 5 metters giraffe, the average size of a giraffe is around 4 metters and much probably the real pictured is about that size. So, the Toy Major could also work as a 1:12 scale, also known as dollhouse scale. The biggest difference to rhe real giraffe is that real giraffes are delicately built why the Toy Major has naturally, relatively thick legs and it makes it look much more massive than it should be. One thing is for sure, it works much better with these lions than the standard giraffes from major companies. Apparently, it will also make a good partner to the Vanishing Wild giraffes Yvette is posting. We still have the AAA large giraffe, not as tall but also of a respectable size. You can see below the AAA giraffe from Chistophe's collection in comparison with a Schleich giraffe. Notice that the figure was repainted by Harriet, the original painting of the model has no possible comparison. Laughing
