Congratulations Cristophe for this Asian Elephant, it is great. The only thing that looks strange are the tusk, are those tusk really that white or it is because of the picture.

Any way it is a great model and definitely on my wish list since I start with Papo thanks to you.

thank you Alejandro. Very Happy

The tusks are really white and it is the only flaw on this model elephant

Despite this, it is a wonderful model... Even too small Wink it is a great PAPO cheers

I do like this female elephant and the sculpting look fine and do compare with Schleich. For me I like the Schleich female more.

thank you all Very Happy By the way, the PAPO is not exactly a female... Wink

The SChleich female is fine and since the PAPO bull is at home, she left the SCHLEICH male... Life is hard sometimes geek

Beautiful figure! JUST TOO SMALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why couldn't they just have made the elephant 6 1/2" tall and 8 1/2" long instead of 3.75" tall and 6.25" long?
WHY? WHY? WHY? It's not that much bigger than what they made, and it would look a heck of a lot better if placed near some of the other figures!
*Also, female Asian elephants don't have large external tusks!

Congratulation, Christophe flower

Very fine figuere and fabulous photoes, - WOW cheers

Only I miss the courage to paint an Indian elefant with the pink /spotted areas. Courage like Joan has when he gives his rhino a reddish-brown sheen.

But perhaps children ( or their moms) think it is not nice looking Rolling Eyes

First, congratulations for another fantastic review walk arround, Christophe! cheers

I don't see nothing wrong when a brand puts a baby with a male parent! ...and I'm not seeing any female in your pictures, I see the Schleich Asian male and he looks pregnant! elephant tongue

About the Papo figure, is great but I think it could be much better, of course a big improovment comparing with the old Schleich figures, but not as nice as I expected! :)

I remember we had talked about, but I had to bring it up again, because I wanted
to remind everyone how STUPID it is to make a calf with a female with large tusks!
I'm sure the Papo production team didn't take the time to research that female Asian elephants don't have big tusks. They meant for it to be a mom and baby!
My motto is, "Do it right or don't do it at all"!
As you know I love Papo, but they blew it on this one!

I'm sure the PAPO team knows that female don't have big tusks but I'm sure they think it is more appealing to produce elephant with big tusks, they also give that female some strange distinctive characteristic between the hindlegs. Sure they don't know the difference between a boy and a girl Laughing Wink

Is it another inaccuracy of the model, Christophe??? Wink

Anyway the tusks are big for a male, some Asian elephants have really large tusks but ordinary tusks are shorter and thiner! albino

I also don't like the tusks,...
I am still waiting for a proper Asian elephant-bull model.

This papo (transgender) model immediately made me think of Mowgli and his friends,....
Does anyone have walkaround pictures of the CollectA-bull?
I expect this one to be an at least more nice sculpt.

Maybe you are right, the tusks are a bit too long... But the shape of the bull is the most realistic I have seen for years now  Cool

They look good when near the Papo lions and tigers : )
Problem solved!
Thanks for nothing Papo...

Yes, I agree K, it does look like a sub adult(male) or a middle age female African.
But since I hate the sizes of the other elephants, it's my only option.
I WISH Safari would make Bull African and Asian elephants in their WW series!

Congratulations, Christophe cheers
It is a beautyful figuere, and with the correct, longer legs unlike the Schleich one Very Happy

Certainly on my wishlist...also drunken

The only thing I wonder about a bit, - the top of the skull. Does it really stand up so much above the neck on an Indian elefant?

Great photoes, thanks for them flower

Nice point Susanne! Well, the first thing we would think is that the skull is almost horizontal we see it from the trunk! Anyway we also see that the arch of the top of the body is less prominent than it is usual! But, also we can see that this elephant has a slightly long neck that projects the head to a higher placement! I think a smaller neck with a lower placement of the head and everything would look better! This is the shape of the skull of a African elephant which as you know is different from African species! :)

thank you Susanne  Very Happy

Well...  scratch ... study ...  elephant  Some elephant have their head a bit above the neck and this one is looking up and is raising a bit his head. But maybe it is the weakest spot of the model. What I appreciate the most with him are the proportions, no big head, no fat abdomen and small legs... It remind me the LINEOL one :

The only thing I wonder about a bit, - the top of the skull. Does it really stand up so much above the neck on an Indian elefant?

Nice point Susanne! Well, the first thing we would think is that the skull is almost horizontal we see it from the trunk! Anyway we also see that the arch of the top of the body is less prominent than it is usual! But, also we can see that this elephant has a slightly long neck that projects the head to a higher placement! I think a smaller neck with a lower placement of the head and everything would look better! This is the shape of the skull of a African elephant which as you know is different from African species! :)

Just looking at your posted Asian animal display/diorama, and it's a nice collection! However, I think you should
use some Safari ltd. WW Asian elephants(Since they are bigger than the small Schleich).
I really like the photo of the Asian Bull stepping off the dirt road onto the grass field!
It would make a great WW figure...

Forgot to ad, I really like the artistic detail of Lineol! In my opinion, it goes Lineol, Britains then Papo as far as the transgression of artistic figures!

The SAFARI Ltd WW and the smaller one are on my wantlist and I hope to get them soon... The main problem is SAFARI Ltd is not as easy to buy in Europa but I love them drunken

I love your elephant Christophe!
Depite all the comments, do i think that the length of the tusks is quit ok, maybe somewhat to thick, but ok...
Of course they sell elephants with white tuskers, i never saw an elephant model with dirty tusks...
Or maybe he just brushed his teeth, who knows...
geek Wink
The neck is ok to, as he is reaching his head forward...
And yes, the size..., but has everything fit together with eachother, specially between different brands?
Who invented that?! Rolling Eyes
Only some brands in the past did know how to make animals in scale to eachother... farao
Great model my friend, and thanks for the pics, great model again! cheers

Papo, sometimes, make mistakes No ! The Asian elephant has 4 fingers in the front limb and 4 in back limb.
In nature, the Asian elephant has 5 + 4. The African, 4 + 3 fingers. Mad

There are many brands making mistakes with elephants! I didn't knew that since I never see them before! By the way, Schleich and Bullyland have crocodiles with wrong number of toes, the Schleich was already retired and Safari also has some wrong! :)
It was nice to see pictures, sorry for asking again! :)
