PostSubject: Torak / Grizzly Bear Photos   Tue Jun 28, 2011 12:22 pm

I first posted some photos of this model in January after visiting the London Toy Fair where the prototypes were on display. Of all the new animal/figure packs this one excited me the most because the figure is just so dramatic and has a lot of life in it. Well it arrived yesterday and it did not disappoint. The bear is fabulous however it is much bigger than I thought it was going to be when comparing it with the current Schleich Grizzly bear family.

The Torak bear is a beauty and now I cant wait to get the Fizzio Porcupine and Liassa Cheetah!

One negative point: There is a little part on the back of the bear directly behind the head which has been shaped to enable the figurine that sits on top hold on to it. I hate this part and spoils the overall shape of the body. I really wish Schleich did not do this but hey ho you cant see it from a distance. Now I look forward to the white elephant although for reference some of the armour on that model is also stuck to the model and cannot be removed which is a shame.

Wonderful pictures of a great figuere cheers

That bear is with no doubt the best one they have ever made .
I also like the boy riding the bear.

Never mind if there is a "handle" on the bear, that is how he was made .
But I understand those who only buy the set for the bear, then it is a shame Rolling Eyes

Hopefully you will also bring such fine and detailed pictures when you get the elefant.
I can`t decide if I want it or not, - it looks fabulous, but from what I can see on MPF, the price will be 25 Euros, - and it is probably huge scratch

Congratulations Numaan, he is magnificent!! cheers cheers
It is a shame about the handle on the shoulder and also the size - I did think about getting one, but he is too big for me Rolling Eyes

Thanks Numaan! :)
These series are not in my wish list, in fact I'm not a big enthusiast of them, also because they are expensive, of course!
Very helpful from you showing what an animal collector would not like because many people buys online and don't have the chance to see it, and this angle, f.e., was enough to deslike the model.
I love the expression of the figure but honestly I don't think it is a fantastic bear, the other regular grizzly is quite nice for a much lower price. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

That's te reason why I will not buy them, it's a kind of things that grow in your mind like a spot on your nose.

Nevertheless, Congratulation Numaan Very Happy

Looks realy nice, but I can agree that the "handle" is a big big minus Sad

But I will probably still buy it, as well as the porcupine and cheetah Very Happy

Hmm, I wonder if they got the inspiration for this model from the book Wolf brother? The main caracters name is Torak, and I think he resembles him a bit to scratch

But of course it´s a bear and not a wolf, so maybe not Laughing

Nice grizzly bear and only setback is the handle & I think should be remove away. But it goes well with Bullyland grizzly bear.
