I got some new models, from our new, favorite brand - Southlands Replicas cheers
So let`s see some walkarounds Very Happy

Let me introduce you this beautiful Eastern Grey Kangaroo Hopping model :



It is made it with great, hopping pose , with great details, great proportions, wonderful paint job
and also very cleaver choice of base Applause

Ok, let`s see a walkaround :















The great choice from Jason, to make this model in such pose , but also without being stick with the base Applause
Excellent result !
Let`s see the base :





And how this model look`s together with other brand models ?

Here together with the new Schleich and Bullyland females :



And last photo is especially for TAI :



So, what can I say more - I really like this model ! Also I love the size of it. It is perfect.

Of course, when we have so nice made it model in out hands, it is more easy to make a judgement, and to find imperfection ..
so I hope that Jason doesn`t mind if I share my opinion , which is a friendly one of course :)

I think, that the ears have to be a bit bigger and also the profile of the face - with a bit different shape.
But these are very small things, which I see, when I watch this great model :)

Let me show you my small collection of Southlands so far :



Thank`s for watching sunny

Great walkaround, thank you so much! Very Happy
This kangaroo looks awesome, not perfect, but still very nice looking. It is definitley on my wishlist and I can't wait for it joining my collection. But is it really in the scale with the other models? I tought that the Tasmanian tiger would have been much smaller. Shocked
Thank you so much Jason! cheers Can't wait to see what will come next!

It is important to notice two points in this figure. First, it is a female what explains its modeste size. Males are much bigger. Then, it is an Eastern grey kangaroo, a different species from we are used. However, there is no big difference in size between both species so, If Southlands don't release a red kangaroo, I have to see which red kangaroo works better witht this figure. The Schleich you're comparing doesn't look much bigger.
I frankly find this figure very close to perfection although I think your observations are not wrong. Maybe it is missing the identation on ears to prevent it from breaking and the shape may be a breeding thing. Laughing I find this figure superb and very well architectured. It reminds me the best works of Colorata with the advantage that Southlands are much nicer in terms of texture.

Kosta, thankyou for making such wonderful photos and taking the time to create walkarounds for the new Southlands models. It is an interesting discussion also regarding the features. It's good to hear an honest commentary and much appreciated as it is helpful for me to continue to improve the quality of the brand.

Here is the main image on which I based the pose and proportions for your interest ..



I agree in hindsight that the ears are maybe a little too small, although it is true that Grey Kangaroos have noticeably smaller ears than the Red species. This photo is an excellent example with the Grey on the left vs Red on the right.



Roger has made some good points.. we are conditioned, I think, to viewing models of Red Kangaroos from other brands which I tend to find have mostly oversized heads. Our model is based on a young female so the features are smaller and finer than we may be used to seeing in other models. Also the Kangaroo has enormous sexual dimorphism. This example below shows the difference in size between a mature male and female red kangaroo. Also interesting to note is that the female red kangaroo is actually grey in colour!
