Time for one of my less-than-conventional walkarounds. This time, the Panamanian white-faced capuchin, Cebus imitator (Thomas, 1903) by National Collectibles Entertainment Association (NECA) - Ace Ventura 8" Pet Detective, released this year in 2019. Historically, most white-faced capuchins were classified as C. capucinus. When justification for separation of the two species was most-recently proposed in 2012, it was realized that the 'familiar' species (e.g., the one featured in film, such as this one) was C. imitator and not C. capucinus. As such, I am going with C. imitator for my figure.

This figure is actually an accessory to an Ace Ventura action figure from the film of the same name. It was brought to my attention on STS forum, on their thread for animal figures from action figure packs and sets. I had recently ordered the K&M Rain-forest Tube figure of this species, and the NECA figure is far superior!

The figure is hard to measure in this pose, but it seems to be about 6.0 cm long not including the tail, which would make it in the 1:13-1:17 range if I am doing the math right. The tail spins in a 360 degree fashion, so it can be displayed up, or down below the animal, or on its right or left side, all depending on how the figure is displayed.

For some reason, the camera angle makes the head look disproportionately big in my photos; in the actual figure it looks more natural. There are apparent seams at the base of the arms, but the arms do not move.

The set also came with a scarlet macaw and domestic pigeon. They are both fantastic (the pigeon is a bit small). I will highlight them when I focus on bird groups. I need to make a branch out of SuperSculpey clay for the macaw (it was designed to fit on Ace's arm).

Finding figures outside of the traditional sources is one of the coolest things of this hobby. We are always wainting for Schleich, Papo, CollectA or any other similar brand to release such animals and the market surprises us as it happned here. The capuchin is actually very nice and it has a much more appealing size than the tube figure. I am almost sure the scale is not close to what you measured, it may be of a larger scale. Curiously, these monkeys have large brains and relatively large heads, maybe the head of the figure should be smaller but in some less close pics, it looks much nicer. Thanks for this interesting walk around and the comparison pictures are quite explanatory. :)

Thanks for sharing, cheers

This figure is one example that, all brands can offer to us, different species.

A good example for the interesting Action toy animals.

Are the arms moveable?

Yes, Andreas your post influenced me :-)

And no, the arms do not move; only the tail moves
