I do not have CollectA's orcas, but I am confused also.

Googling "CollectA orca", i found a No2 here also [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , and that was just a quick search scratch

The 3rd one looks more like the CollectA one, and clearly has the CollectA logo, so perhaps it is the right one Very Happy

I hope somebody who owns one bought from a reliable source, so we can solve this interesting riddle  drunken

Of course it is possible to ask CollectA directly. If you do, I would love to hear what they ansver sunny

Yea but what's weird is that this is also a pic from that same SK listing except he definitely took this one
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

and it doesn't look like any of them (well, most like the SK I guess).

Heck, I never bought this back a long time ago when searching for CollectAs cuz I kept finding that weird second picture with the poor paint job.

It makes me think there's two versions: a foreign listing that looks like the CollectA or SK listing, and the second weird one that is a cheap way of continuing the line after all these years (cuz apparently it's still in production I think)

Also, I didn't find this model on the Toy Animal wiki or in walkarounds. it's like a 2006 relic of the past or something study

I took a look at Modellpferdeversand, and it looks "right" [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But in Spielzeug-guenstig the other major, German toy-E-shop,it is the poor one [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Shocked

I think you are right !!!
It would be great to get pictures of both for TAI , if this is the case !

Should we/you/I start a topic asking people for pictures of their Collecta Orca, - or better perhaps if you add something to the heading of this topic ? Something like : "...do you have one ? " ....

Well, it is just an idea. Only if you agree , of course Embarassed

The second picture is the old version. In 2012, CollectA upgraded their orca. They improved the painting and the fin. The first and third pics are the new version.
