CollectA have remade their hippo and it is far better than the previous version. However, I think the angle of the photo does not quite capture the model correctly so do please wait until you see the photos of the final model. This roaring hippo is based on a younger adult rather than a fully grown bull.

This is another remake of an existing model which was important to do in order to update the original range bit by bit.

Some of you on the forum guessed my clues right....I will have to be more careful with the clues I give out!


Official text

The CollectA Hippopotamus was in need of a make-over to match the high quality standard of the newer models. As you can see the pose is much more lively and energetic. The mouth is wide open again, the head tilted actively upwards. The skin has an uneven surface with two-tone colouring to emphasize the uneven skin surface. The feet are much more realistic and clearly show the toes of the animal.

Size: L14cm x H8.6cm

Release: Mid-2018

To be honest this is definitley the ugliest model for 2018 made by Collecta, the pose it dynamic and the colours are nice, but anatomy looks very wrong, however I hope to see more pictures soon.

So here is the guy that, according to Christophe, it enjoys a good bath but not a shower. Laughing You captured the exact point when it is entering the Noah's ark during the grand shower. No wonder it looks quite angry! Laughing Well, it seems photographed slightly from top and it is very hard to take correctly its proportions. A picture from floor level could be more readable. To be honest, the level of detail looks really great and I think it is a good step forward when comparing with previous version. I only doubt it will take the cake as the best of the market. scratch

So eventually there was a hippo! My first guess was right! I simply thought which existing figures were in need of a makeover, and the hippo was among them... That, together with the clue talking about the water-loving animal, led me to guess a new hippo was on its way... And here it is! I like it, though I am not sure, as Roger, that it would be the best in show... Anyway, tusks are really well rendered!

This hippo is amazing! It is not easy to make a hippo with open mouth in real looking result. But this one is on my must-have-list for sure!!!

One of the best hippos with its mouth open. And what a huge improvement form its last model.
