New African animals from PNSO, small scale (OK!), slightly unnatural poses (rhino, giraffe) but absolutely gorgeous gazelle!

In the link provided in the first post you can see the measurements of each piece. For my collection all are too small (even the warthog, that is 7,5 cm long x 4,5 height (for me, it would be good with 8 to 8,5 cm lenght)), also the gazelle is too small with 6,5 cm lenght and 6,6 cm height (for me it would be good with 8 cm lenght, roughly the same than CollectA springbok). The only animal that is not too small for me, is the chameleon -that of course is oversized Razz

I like those sizes but do not want to buy the whole thing for just two animals

That's a tree kangaroo I think. Not sure of the species though.

These are great looking animals!

So I absolutely love them and I find their designs refreshing. Most of the poses are not so unnatural as they seem and a few are even spectacular in my opinion. I also love the proportions of some sculpts and I find incredible that they can put so delicate legs in such small figures.
The lion and platypus are defintely not good figures but some are really great, namely the cheetah, rhino, gazelle, warthog, etc.
About the Oceanian animal, I think Paige is completely right and it is a tree-kangaroo. Curious that it seems to be larger than the red kangaroo. Laughing

A Goodfellow's? But where are the two clear stripes that should run along its back?

Do you think the gazelle is a thomson gazelle? The crocodile a nile crocodile and the chameleon a jackson chameleon and the ostrich a somali ostrich and a blue wildbeest?

Difficult to think in an exact match but I think that it fit's better with a mountain gazelle, Gazella gazella.

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

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

Gazella thomsonii: note straighter horns, paler face, wider side stripe, etc. Also, the ringhs of the horns are oblique in mountain gazelle and PNSO figure, but perpendicular to the horn axis in the Thomson's. And the shape of the head is shorter in Thomson's and longer in the mountain gazelle and in the figure.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Crocodile is obviously Nile (since it's an african species and is not slender-snouted nor dwarf), the chameleon is correct (the only species with three long forward-oriented horns), the wildebeest is of course blue (the black wildebeest have a white tail and different shaped horns), and about the ostrich I don't pronounce as I don't care about subspecies, for me, it's just an Ostrich as I'm a species collector.

With the gazelle is really difficult. I think that figure is not exactly. I also can find more in the book "Bovids of the world". The brown is to dark for a Thompson gazelle but the black stripe (especially by the eyes) is more a Thompson gazelle.

I am sorry again for disapointing your optimistic identification and I really find the Mountain gazelle a very good approach. However, if geographic criterion is valide for crocodiles, it should also be considered for gazelles. Yes, mountain gazelles are not good choices for an African set like this one.
In my opinion, they just want to represent a Thomson's gazelle, it is the most popular gazelle species and I think the horns pointed forward are a feature of this species. The thickness of the horns is a consequence of the way they must be manufactured. Much probably the painting is not exactly based in a Thomson's species but it is often common that some designers mix several species when using online pictures for reference.

Yes, that's why I said that is difficult to find an exact match. And yes, I forgot that mountain gazelles are Arabian and while very close to Africa, Arabia is still Asia... However, by morphology only, the species that match best is the mountain gazelle despite having being made without thinking in it.

I really appreciate all your effort to identify species and you're doing a great and useful work.
Actually, the figure works better as a mountain gazelle but certainly PNSO mean a Thomson's gazelle. These things happen often as we observed before with the Schleich gazelle, Mojo oryx, etc.

But a Matschie don't have dark rings in the tail, and the contrast between white and rufous parts in limbs, belly and overall, head, is much stronger...

In my opinion is just a "generic" tree kangaroo with no species match

A generic tree kangaroo isn't a species and the other tree kangaroos are really different from this one. I can't say it is a perfect Matschie' or Goodfellow but it is closer to those ones than to any other.

It is the same for the gazelle but it is always interresting to play the game Very Happy

We could also say that the other kangaroo, the one with a baby is a generic kangaroo Wink

Yes, and this time the figure is not ambiguous, it is clearly a cheetah. However, it is not the first time we see this confusion from a Chinese company. I believe it is not a misidentification but a translating issue. The word cheetah in mandarin countains the word leopard on it. We also use the name leopard for clouded leopards and snow leopard, for instance and they are different species from the traditional leopard. Considering it, I think we may trust their identifications.

Hard to say. I bought the set for the Goodfellows Tree kangaroo. This figure is nice, but not more. The cassowary too, and the other figures are not really new as species in the toy world. So not really only one new specie for my zoo. The quality is okay, not so good as major brands or japanese brands. Size similar major brands.

So not really only one new specie for my zoo. The quality is okay, not so good as major brands or japanese brands. Size similar major brands.

The Cassowary looks quite nice in their official pictures. It is a pity that they decided to make the Southern species, exactly the same as CollectA and Safari did. Can the base of the cassowary be removed? I ask because in one of the pics it is presented without the base. Thanks also for additional informations.

Hard to say. I bought the set for the Goodfellows Tree kangaroo. This figure is nice, but not more. The cassowary too, and the other figures are not really new as species in the toy world.

Here is the photo of the complete Africa set - maybe useful for figures size comparison.

I wasn't very amazed by the set but the chameleon was a real eye-catcher for me.

I wasn't very amazed too, especially by the material used, the plastic is very fragile and e. g. the legs or tusks can easily be malformed. Hair dryer and cold water can NOT fully repair such malformations, the plastic has strong "memory effect".

Very bad news Jarda. I'm happy I only buy the chameleon.

It's too bad for this line because other models are really nice like their bigger animals or their dinosaurs.

I bought four to see if I like them: the chameleon, Thompson's gazelle, tree kangaroo, and warthog. I found the quality to be fine for all of them, with no issues regarding standing (mine were shipped in the original packaging which protects them from warping).

I bought the rhino and I can't say that I am unhappy with the quality. I also got some older PNSOs (I think; they might be copies) and they are OK too. In contrast to many modern-day brands, PNSO use PVC or a PVC-like material. Yes, it can sometimes be malformed. I usually put the malformed part in hot water, then under the cold tap while holding the part in place. But as you say, the plastic has a memory and you need to keep it in place for a long time, otherwise it bends back. Not sure for how long you have to hold it, but at least over a month. I don't hold it in my hands all the time Smile, but if the legs are bent inwards (often the case), then I put something in between or otherwise you could try to use a clamp (but make sure it doesn't damage the plastic).

Thanks for posting a picture of the whole box. The rhino was too small, but now I can work out the size of the other figures. The croc looks right, the zebra perhaps too, but probably a few mm too large.
