A few months ago, a good friend gave me some animals, in the parcel there was this huge  mandrill from WILD REPUBLIC.
It is hollow cast plastic and the welds are not the finest I have ever seen. But I like it a lot. Head, hands, shape are very good IMHO.
But let's go for the pics. Very Happy

I don't own this figure, but it is available from Tapir.com, I love the pose, and the pics look great, but as you can see it is a giant so I can't use it. Congrats on recieving the figure, I think that even though it wont fit on my dioramas it is one of the best looking mandrill figures out there. I'm sorry to hear the casting isn't the greatest, but still all in all you have a great model.

The model is quit good indeed!
The size would not be important to me actually...
But you can see, specially in those bigger models made in China, that they did put the models together in more parts, because you can see the lines on the model.
I have several of those bog models from various makers, and they show the same...

Hello everybody :) ,
I can only connect as, I think the pose is also very successful, even if the raised arm seems to me a little bit too long.
I had bought the figure in a package with other animal figures, but because of the large size I gave this to my daughter. In the package was still an okapi and a sloth, which I have kept.

Thank you for the pics Yurumi.

My friend also gave me the sloth and, despite it is big, I like it very much.

The okapi seems great too !

I don't know what to think about the tapir... the seams are very apparent and shiny. Maybe it's the light ?

They look quit good indeed, although a little bit bigger then the Schleich scale...
I do like the okapi the most.

Die sehen doch ziemlich gut aus, obwohl die ein bisschen grösser wie Schleich sind...
I mag den Okapi am meisten.

Yes, the figures are well done, but unfortunately also a little larger than Schleich.

@Kikimalou: The seams are really shiny and to see a lot, but in the pictures is by the light yet a little more.
