Walkaround of the West Indian manatee, Trichechus manatus Linnaeus, 1758 by Papo,Wildlife, new this year for 2019.

When I started my Synoptic Collection, this figure had just been announced. I was trying to decide if I wanted this one, or the CollectA figure, but since this one came out early enough, I gave it a chance.

The figure is 14.0 cm, making it 1:19-1:25 in scale.

I was expecting for a walk around of this manatee and you did it! I am also not sure about which manatee to get once the pose of the CollectA is better for display while the Papo looks much more detailed. At least all wrincles and details look more conspicuous. I'll maybe favour Papo's.

I agree with Roger, asides the fact that I think there are too many wrinkles, at least the animals I've seen didn't had that lot. Anyways, thanks for the pictures and congratulations!

That's a fact and a tendency through these last years. Figures are heavily textured or with their details too conspicuous. It is often quite positive to contribute to the level of detail of the figures but, sometimes, it is somewhat exagerated as it seems to be the case here.
