Unfortunately, the best have some strange characteristics.
Left to the right:
1.Vanishing Wildlife Bengal Tiger. Maybe he has eaten some funny pills,...
2.Wildlife Wonders Siberian Tiger. Looks like he's walking along the moat of it's enclosure all day long,...
3.Vanishing Wildlife Siberian Tiger male. That face,..i don't know. The nose, the eyes,..all far too small and "rounded".

I don't know about a moat, perhaps walking the Siberian tundra in search of a mate, a meal or a place to rest : )

They are great models, congratulations, PeGe cheers

You are right, though. They do have some funny expressions.

But the moat walker is awfully nice, I think .
Perhaps he is thinking about a huge box of Belgian chocolates Shocked
Ohh, no Embarassed , I am always told that you must not think animals have human thoughts, - perhaps he is thinking about a huge chocolate covered steak scratch Very Happy

How old is the Bengal tiger ? The way of painting resembles the way Safari made them some years ago ...

It is a wonderful collection you have, thanks for sharing flower sunny

The Bengal Tiger was released back in 1999.

Pege you should try get your hands on the leaping siberian tiger, which is an awesome figure:

Hey!
hmm,..honestly, i don't like the sculpt, mainly because of the teeth.
But it's impressive.

I think one still has to buy a resin figurine to get a good tiger.

I agree, to be honest the VW figures would be off as resins, I am so yucked by the paint scheme on my male lion and how the VW paint rubs off so easily. Though the giraffes, elephants, polar bears look fantastic!

Hmm,...To find characteristics of the subspecies, they should at least look more like tigers than creatures from a psychedelic universe cyclops Laughing

They are interesting figures, hard to find, nice collectibles! Anyway I'm really happy with my Papo tigers!
Safari is not the best in painting figures.

Papo tiger look realistic?
I don't think so,...
The faces are looking wrong, the painting looks like airbrush.
The heads are quite similar to Mojo, they both did the same mistakes to "untiger" them,...
Still, there's no good tiger figurine.
the best i saw up to now i a resin sculpt by i think "naturecraft" or whatever,...need it!

That is very interesting! You know that everything in the world is relative, Papo tiger is realistic in comparison with their counterparts! You should not compare a relatively cheap toy with a resin sculpture. Anyway I like this kind of comments, could you please tell clearly what is wrong? Who knows this is easily corrected!

You are right.
Even catalogues are relative:

What you saw isn't what you get. Suspect
Beside such surprises, the mouth is a little too big, while the nose is too small.
Call it "hamster-head-bigmouth-smallnose-ugly-stripes"-tiger with eyes placed slightly wrong.

I like the careful way you look at the figures! That's really nice. In every replicas everything is slightly wrong and slightly wrong is nice when sometimes we see figures that are dramatically wrong! : cat(

As the tiger is my alltime favourite animal, i am very critical on tiger models... Rolling Eyes
To be fair and honest, none of the existing models is perfect, they all have their flaws... Rolling Eyes
The Papo tiger is one of the best IMHO. Cool
