the detail in the furr is to much, as the shiny coat of the okapi does look like smooth velvet actually,

why do companies always add so much texture to the surface of animals that have sleek coats? scratch Are they afraid the figure will look too "plastic" without rough "fur"? With modeling as excellent as they have now, no need!

I'm not even tempted to get the Eland unless the final product's coat is significantly smoother than it is shown on the prototype. That texture ruins it for me. Crying or Very sad The sculpting is perfect, it doesn't need "fur"! No

Those are prototypes, Carolynn! :) The final figure loose always texture and that's the reason why brands need to make prototypes with such rich texture. :)

Besides that Carolynn, in most cases they didn't make the texture where they SHOULD make it actually, haha. geek
But in this case we can't tell yet how the final model will look, because they are prototypes indeed, as Rogerio told you before. Wink

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

You are right PAPO okapi have too chunky legs but IMHO SCHLEICH and COLLECTA okapis have too big head. It's bad for COLLECTA because we already saw this company is able to make a giraffe with a normal head, which is really unusual on the toy market. Laughing
