Oh, I was not much aware of the other mountain goats. But if they're retired, I'm not regretful of have been bought the CollectA's figure. Also, the mountain set could be interesting, and I don't have any ibex nor mouflon, but they're not species that I wish a lot, and for the mouflon I prefair the CollectA's one.
I knew that this mountain goat belongs to the farm series. So curious as seeing the maned wolf in the African Animals section in their catalogue :)

yes, the takin is great and the CollectA muskox too, maybe not so big than Schleich one I already have.. I think Rogério is right, the Schleich moutain box worths being commanded because the 3 replicas are accurate!.. :)

Last arrival: bought in eBay about a month ago, the Kaiyodo Deep Sea series Silver Chimaera (Chimaera phantasma). It comes with a bottlecap and a stick for holding. It measures 6,3 cm long and is absolutely perfect! Very Happy I love it! :)

As far as I can read your collecting tastes. I believe you will find a lot of joy in Japanese figures. They are often very scientifically accurate. They also feature very obscure species.

Yesterday I went to a shop where I found a very little stand with very few figures for sale. One of them belonged to my wishlist, so I bought it: the CollectA's springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis). It have the same good quality and accurateness level that is usual with CollectA's antelopes :-)

I feel that your levels of collecting joy are increasing. I love the picture of the cheetah meeting the magnificent springbok. The other horned friends are also very beautiful. It is so nice when we find joy mixing different brands. Very Happy

Hello!
Today I received the Colorata Saltwater fish set, made in 2015 and formed by 15 species/figures (16 actually, tough one is designed as just an accesory).
I bought it in eBay because I found a great offer: 48 € and free shipping for the set, while the normal price is about 56 € and an average of 10-15 € of shipping costs. However, the damn customs make me pay an extra 26 € more!!!!!!!!!! AGAIN!!!!!!! (same quantity that they robbed me with the Minizoo figurines). So, finally I paid more than the normal-priced sets. Man is the only animal that trips twice over the same stone... Sad
But at least, the figures are beautiful and fantastic! I'm more fish-fan than most "only-big-mammal" lovers, and I found some of these figures quite exciting. Here they are:

General view of the new additions
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Spiny red gurnard (Chelidonichthys spinosus). I like a lot triglid fishes because their spectacular pectoral fins and strange conformation.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Pacific saury (Cololabis saira). Wonderful and very well done, this is a fish that I knew thanks to this set!!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Japanese flying fish (Cypselurus agoo). Pectoral fins must be assembled (each one individually) and pelvic fins too (as an united pair). A wonderful figure!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Oceanic sunfish (Mola mola). By far better than the Safari LTD sunfish, at least in painting terms. Of course this fish cannot stand upright, but since I dislike very much to use bases and sticks in my figurines, I let mine gently supported against the lateral panel.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Spotted jellyfish (Mastigias papua). This is included as a complement of the sunfish (because sunfishes eat jellies), and the base includes two holes, one for each animal. However, I prefair to get it separatedly as an own figure, mainly because of the scale. It's not enormous as the jellyfish figures made individually, so it can go into mi collection, unlike the others. A so tiny figure cannot be extremely detailed, however it's enough accurate, and recognizable as species.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Bastard halibut or olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus). Flat fishes are a special thing too, and this one is lovely!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Pacific sardine (Sardinops sagax). Lovely little creature, perfect in shape and colour :)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus). One of my most wished figures of the set. I love mackerels because of their beautiful colors and shape :)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

False kelpfish, marbled rockfish or sea ruffe (Sebastiscus marmoratus). While not my favourite of the Scorpaeniformes, it's a magnific figure and nicely painted.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Striped marlin (Tetrapturus audax). With no doubt, the king of this set, and maybe the strongest reason that convinced me to buy it. Pectoral and pelvic fins must be assembled. The plastic is soft, so one must take care with the bending of the bill. Fortunately it comes with a protective sheet.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus). Maybe if marlin is the king, tuna is the queen. It's a so magnific species and a so magnific figure. I'm absolutely in love with it Very Happy And also, this is the only one of all my aquatic animal figurines, that float in the water Shocked
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Japanese horse mackerel (Trachurus japonicus). Not a very exciting species for me but is sooo well done!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And now, four figures that I do not like enough for include in my collection.

Dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus). It's a bit too small, the body is too green (no deep blue in the dorsum), and dorsal fin is too transparent (no blue). The soft caudal fin came twisted and is very difficult to correct. And the most important: this fish cannot stand upright alone (and I will not use the base and stick).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis). It's a magnific species for me, but the paintjob is... uh... ugly. Black lines that join forming strange angles? They should not join. A deep blue patch that end abruptly at the operculum border? That should not happen... And I cannot repaint it because my colours don't include metallic silvers and bluish...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Red seabream (Pagrus major). It's just too big for my taste, plus, sparid are really not my favourite fishes, so I don't feel nothing special about this figure.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes). I like tetraodontiforms a lot, but this figure is too big for my taste.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

So I would like to trade the four last figures (they are new, tough the bag of the dolphinfish is open) in 1:1 trade by any of the next:
-Colorata arapaima
-Colorata Australian lungfish
-Colorata bald eagle
-Colorata golden eagle
-Colorata harpy eagle
-Colorata secretarybird
-Colorata silver arowana
-FloZ grey whale
-Happy Kin baiji
-Happy Kin northern right whale dolphin
-Happy Kin strap-toothed whale
-Joy City pygmy hog
-Kaiyodo longose lancetfish
-Mojö Fun pronghorn
-PNSO Beluga
-Safari LTD California condor
-Safari LTD malayan tapir OR Papo Malayan tapir
-Starlux Jentink's duiker

I also can exchange/sell all the bases and sticks for the quantity of wished figures that you find fair :)

Customs are a problem. I want a lot to save some money to get the Colorata penguins set. It is even less expensive than this one, however much less audatious than this magnificent set you acquired. Penguins are quite simple when compared with these fish figures. But again, I fear the customs. I could easily trade my pygmy hog for one of these figures you're not interested but it is unfair for you in my opinion. I am also not too much into fish figures although I have a good number of them.

Thanks! Roger, better wait about the pygmy hog. I'm waiting that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] tells me the price of his duplicate pygmy hog that I want to buy from him :) I asked him various times but I'm still waiting!

I wish you luck with the penguin set! I looked at it too and I find magnific and in perfect scale :)

New batch thanks to my first trade with forum members!  Very Happy Big thanks to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ! :-)

1. Common genet (Genetta genetta). No brand, only "China" stamped in the belly. The figure is made of a soft, rubbery plastic, but still a very good and detailed sculpt, and perfect in size, what is a difficult to find thing with smaller mammals. I knew that the painting very bad but I still bought it for repaint it.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Somewhere in Andalusia the still unretouched genet meets the repainted Papo iberian lynx.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And in the African savannah it finds the small Kaiyodo serval.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

After and before repainting. The repainting was not perfect, as the original black spots are too difficult to camouflage amongst decent-sized and sharp black spots!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

2. Pygmy hog (Sus salvanius) from Joy City. I was illusionated by this figure since the moment of know its existence, as it's a very wished obscure animal for me, and much better done than the other JoyCity animals. However when I opened the mail I was disappointed. It measures just 4,5 cm lenght! It would be a 1:30 scale more or less, too tiny for me. Besides that, the texture is extremely grainy with hundreds of micro grains. That would be maybe not an issue in the fur, but they're an issue in the hooves and the nose. So finally I will not include it in my collection. I'll add with my Colorata fishes (red sea bream, skipjack tuna and Japanese pufferfish) as a figure for trade by other figures if somebody want!

3. Mountain nyala (Tragelaphus buxtoni) from CollectA. As with most CollectA figures, i'ts a masterpiece, and an obscure antelope species (that is the best speciality of this brand).

With other horned pal also endemic of the Horn of Africa, the hirola:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

4. Chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarctica) by Safari LTD. This is the second bird in my collection. Texture is a bit awful, I've tried to correct it a bit with a cutter, but the result is unnoticeable. However, I improved considerably the paintjob and also sharpened the bill and the claws.

5. Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), of the "woodland caribou" subspecies (Rangifer tarandus caribou), by CollectA. This figure danced a lot in and out of my wishlist. First, I considere reindeer as a too banal and well known species for me, as I prefair more obscure species. But then I saw the development of the stags of this figure and I fell in love. But after that I knew the measurements and it looked too big for me. But after that I calculated that a portion of these measurements belongs to the horns and my rigidity for scale acceptance also softened slightly, so I finally included in my wishlist. But after that I noticed the figure only have 1 frontal fan of the stags, the other stag don't have a fan, just a sharp simple point. Still despite that I was in love with this reindeer over any other reindeer figure, and finally I've got it. And after getting it, I discovered how often, real alive woodland caribous have assymetrical development of stags and very often they miss one of the frontal fans. So then the CollectA figure is absolutely accurate.
I also added a more diffuse shade of whitish in the flanks instead a straight line, but I did that after taking the pics.

Hello my deer friend! These two are my only cervids for now:

Hungry polar bear, worried by the ice smelting, forgot the seals and tried to prey on more agile land preys. Will he succeed in this distracted male caribou while he munch some arctic willows (ehem, yes, Polycarpon)?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And by last, 6. Strap-toothed whale (Mesoplodon layardi). Probably originally from Nayab, and later adopted by Happy Kin Toys. From what I learned here in the animal replica collector forums, Nayab figures tend to be always "adopted" by other brands. Anyway, the figure is perfect, or nearly so. I love the rugged texture of the skin, giving it a more realistic effect. I didn't took pics of the "before" but I also retouched this one, cutting the inner side of the teeth (originally attached to the muzzle as simple prominences) for make them clearly separated from the muzzle. I also added some diffuse white in the zone where white meets black in the back, around the dorsal fin. The original one had a too sharp delimitation between both colours.

Except cetaceas, I also have almost all your newcomers!.. I think the comon genet is from the nayab set. it's an interessant figurine because few produced by main brands but its tail is a little too short, so I 'll make it longer with my WePAM paste and I'll repaint it.. Papo polar bear attitude is very well but its head seems a little too small to me and I didn't yet by it.. :)

Yes I noticed the short tail but that's a minor issue. I choosed this polar bear when I saw in a stationery just because his head seems absolutely perfect to me! Other polar bears by other brands almost looks like brown bears in white coat....

I was almost sure the pygmy hog could disapoint you. It is not enough good for my collecting taste and your are far less tolerant. However, the species represented is very interesting and I hope to see it made by a major company.
CollectA ungulates are normally very good, I think you can go safely and your high expectations won't be defrauded.
About the caribou's asymmetry, it was done in purpose to make it look more realistic.
Regarding the polar bear, I agree completely with you. When you watch pictures of large male polar bears, you can see their heads look proportionally very small when compared with their massive bodies. Their heads also have a very distinctive shape, being flat and long. So, I think most of the bears, mainly polar bears, have really disproportionally large heads or small bodies depending of the way you want to see it.

My collecting fever go a step further! Very Happy I passed many days looking at the animals of a stationery nearby my home, and finally I decided to buy something. They're all common ABC species! I'm an obscure-species lover and in my starting of the collection I never would imagined that I would fell in love with figures of banal species. However, they're so perfectly well done that I fell in love!

1. Red deer (Cervus elaphus), by CollectA. My idea of perfect common deer figure is a stag with thick furry neck, looking upwards, bellowing and with blank eyes. This one is looking aside and have a thin neck, but is very similar to what I wanted, with mouth fully open, and I like a lot the fur scultpture (not simplistic as in Papo red deer), the coat colour, and the antler shape.

In southern Andalusia, a hungry Iberian lynx try to find something. By surprise he finds this big stag. A too powerful, big and dangerous prey. The deer know it and try to threat the predator by a menacing posture and bellowing. Shortly after, the lynx retreat silently in look for a less tricky prey...

My deer collection now. All CollectA's! :)

2. Mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx). There are various mandrill models in different brands, but I think that this Schleich one is unbeatable in perfect quality of shape and painting.

In the Congo rainforest, a mandrill have an encounter with one of the most mysterious inhabitants of this region...

After a while, the okapi decided that the mandrill is harmless, and each animal continue his way.

All my primates now, just two species (not a group that I'm a fan of). The enormous overgrown Sulawesi black-crested macaque, as big as a chimpanzee, with the decent-sized mandrill.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

3. And by last, the most magnific of these ABC species: the Tiger (Panthera tigris). The perfection of this figure is atonishing, especially the stripes. Other brands have very good tigers but with too thin or too regular or too unrealistic stripes. This one have perfect coat, perfect shape, and perfect pose, walking slowly with the jaw partially open for getting fresh air in the torrid Indian monsoonic forest.

The tiger is hungry, but a gaur is a magnific oponent. The fearless gaur look at the tiger with contempt. This bull is strong and healthy and can deal with the predator. So the tiger must look for something easier...

A striped hyena follows the tiger at a prudent distance, maybe he kills something and leave some remains for the hyena....

The tiger spots a perfect prey! A male blackbuck, ideal for a meal!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

But the blackbuck perceive the predator before he can approach enough, and flee quickly. Next time, Mr Tiger....!

And here the Tiger with my other Panthera cats (jaguar by Schleich and snow leopard by Papo)

Very enthertaining presentations. It is interesting to find more common species in your collection and enjoy watching your choices. I am quite surprised with your mandrill choice. I don't mean it is a bad choice in any way. Though, I use the Papo version, I think the general proportions of the animal are more correct than in Schleich's. Surely theis figure is nicer in certain aspects.
Curious also that you used the red deer with the Iberian lynx. We both agree the lynx is being too ambitious but that's probably because of the successful conservation program being developed by Spain and Portugal. Don't you think the CollectA stag shows some features of the Iberian subspecies? Namely the neck area?
Looking forward to see your next choices. bounce

Hmmm, I never tought in a specific subspecies of red deer for this figure (actually I don't tend to think in subsepcecies for any figure of any animal). But maybe yes, it's small, gracile and dark-haired, and maybe fits better with Mediterranean populations of red deer than the robust and reddish Central European ones...

For sure Papo mandrill is a great mandrill, I was not aware of it's existence. From what I can see in images, is even better than the Schleich one, overall in head shape, butt and hands/feet. But now I have the Schleich's and it's enough for me. Just saw it for sale at this stationery and I can't resist Very Happy

... and you did very well! It happens often with me, namely with the current Schleich cheetah. I didn't need it at all until I find it locally. Laughing
