Here is the new 2012 Adult male Okapi, calf photos to come later. If the Okapi family is a hit then I will try to persuade CollectA to create a female Okapi. Lets hope these are a success!

I honestly do not like this figure, it looks too chunky, the colour is too dark, the textures is too strong! Although this is only my opinion, feel free to disagree

I find that this figure is OK to me. But not the best.

I'm very proud of the work Numaan is developing with CollectA. We are seeing the best CollectA year surely! :)
Anyway I must be honest and say that I'm completly neutral about this okapi, maybe because the Papo is already very good, maybe because Numaan's avatar is a okapi? Laughing I was expecting more. The mould looks really wrong, the painting is not the best of the market and the pose is terribly bored! Yes, bored, when we see a new species in the market a standing pose is always very welcome but we already have the Safari, Bullyland, Schleich and Papo and some adopt almost the same pose.
Also I don't like figures with big heads because it turns them toyish. :)
Anyway I'm only seeing a picture and it's a positive work and I'm sure people gave his best! cheers

Same here, this figure makes me the least excited when compared to other 2012 CollectA items...

I really like the pose, I think the Papo Okapi is ugly - the legs are too chunky and I dont like the body texture. Everyone has their own opinion. Each company has its own limitations on what they can and cant do. I too would prefer the stripe patterning to be a bit more realistic but on a commercial toy it is quite difficult otherwise Schleich would also have done it. It is the first time CollectA have made an Okapi so that pose had to be a little more neutral. I hope that in 2013 we can have a female and hopefully in a different pose such as eating or walking.

Here are a few more photos to wet your appetitie but the blackness on the face as seen here here will not be present on the main toy as it was hard for CollectA to get a full black muzzle with their paint department - it all comes down to technicalities and what can and cant be done. This is after all a toy and not a work of art or a sculpture Very Happy

This colour scheme on the head is much better, it's much more subtle...

It's a shame such limitations since it happens in all brands we have to understand! I know what Numaan means perfectly! Laughing
Unfortunately in these last pictures the figure looks better. By the way I also understand that it is hard to make the first version of a figure, unless it is already known in the market. Very brave from CollectA to make a black gnu in such pose. :)
The legs of Papo okapi are not too spreed as in other Papo figures, not more than 1 cm but okapis are very graceful, I agree!

Thank you Numaan for the extra pictures, I love him and think he's beautiful - much better than the Schleich Okapi.
I know the Papo Okapi has thick legs, but I still like him a lot.

I have to agree with Harriet... I love Papo okapi for a huge reason. Papo okapi´s stripes... they are perfect. This Collecta okapi have horrible stripes on that pic from behind Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad scratch It´s almost like Schleich one and that was pretty bad Crying or Very sad And i´m still confused about his head... it seems to me really big Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Mostly on the first picture it is really huge Rolling Eyes
Anyway... finaly first okapi without chubby legs! I like it very much :) I like this model a lot but I´m afraid it will not be successful so... bye bye female Neutral Hope the calf will be realy great!

Thank you for the additional pictures Numan I love your Okapi.
It is graceful and texture is good,
I find by against scratches on the backside too cimétrique and unreal ....,
it looks like he wears down?? sunny Wink

New CollectA okapi has better formed head but generally the Papo okapi is much better painted, especialy strips (as Martin noticed) on this view are ugly, very geometric and unnatural. Maybe result of weird hybridization project between okapi and zebra :)

Another great new CollectA model, but with flaws as all the other okapi's... Laughing
The stripes are to symetrical indeed, the legs to short, and the detail in the furr is to much, as the shiny coat of the okapi does look like smooth velvet actually, but overall a nice model, a 7 1/2 out of 10 from me! Very Happy
And uuuuhhh, where is the calf? question Rolling Eyes scratch
