The calf is disappointing for me... Crying or Very sad
The pattern is good, the shape of the head ok.
But the overall model is to chubby, and not sleek enough, as a giraffecalf is high on its legs from birth to, and the neck is almost the same in proportions as on an adult.
So in this model, the legs are to short, and the neck to, besides from the body which is to chubby... Rolling Eyes
A 6 out of 10 for me. Cool

very ordinary calf.giraffe has elegance like deers .each pose like running,neck bending,drinking,lying should be captured in the figure.the schleich,safari giraffes had done it and raised its standard and our expectation.eg the vanishing wildlife giraffe calf this calf is standing still.while making giraffe in the future others should concentrate both pose and coat patterns.but alteast i can concentrate on other 2012 items

The thing with giraffe calfs is... calf are really flexible and they are in silly movements and Schleich (really bad one), Papo, Bullyland and now Collecta have standing calf and it´s boring. I was expecting some movement... But i like it still :)

So after all, a lying giraffe calf would have been a good choice! Laughing
But with a longer and slimmer neck, which resambles some flexibility. Wink

Some of you have commented on the size of the adult giraffe in relation to the Schleich version. Here are two photos. I havent the exact measurement but you can see that the CollectA model is bigger than the Schleich version. This photo is of the prototype adult giraffe not the main plastic version which is the first picture I originally posted in this thread:

Wow I love the paintwork and it's a nice size - I wish I could have the prototype drunken
The paintwork doesn't look as good on the catalogue photo of the Adult Giraffe, in these photos it looks so much more realistic.

That's just it. Prototypes produced by any company are always the best version due to the material used and the attention to detail. Any model that is then mass produced in a factory almost inevitably lose some of this and there is nothing we can do about it.

In other ways models by Harriet or Ana can be seen as prototypes as each one is hand made and individually painted so that is the closes any of us can get other than specially commissioned works. I am glad you like the giraffe - we definitely need a bigger one that what we have on the market today.

The giraffe is beautiful and nice size, but as far as I know, the prototype is always around 8% bigger than the final PVC product Rolling Eyes So she may loose 1cm or more Neutral But still-I like this giraffe very much cheers

I think it is 8% of the general mass so it will be only some milimetters! Laughing That's what I think! But people always wants figure in scale with Schleich, so what's the problem? What a Face

No! They don't make new one but PVC shrinks during production process study :)
