PostSubject: Which Okapi????   Sat Jan 21, 2012 10:18 pm

there are very many brands of Okapi out or coming out this year...I have the Schleich, Papo and Safari (blah--too shiny and plastic ooking) ones. The Schleich is too big to scale. I like the Papo one. However, what do people think of other brands' okapi--inlcuding those with calves. thanks :)

I don`t have the one from Safari scratch
Could it be an idea with pictures of them all? Then everybody can see what we are talking about Wink

Here are the ones from Bullyland :

I had the luck of seeing the new CollectA okapi and calf. The size looks great, legs are less thick than the Papo one and is not shiny as I can remember. The calf is cute but not fantastic, I guess. :)
Maybe I am able to have permission to photograph them next time I go to the shop and take my Papo with me to take some pictures. : with the CollectAs)
I think my favourite is still the Papo one even it was not possible to make a perfect comparison. BTW, the CollectA ahs huge horns! What a Face

Personally... I love WW Safari Ltd. okapi the most. But it´s too big for "regular" animal collection... on the second place is Papo. Realy great model and stripes look real...

Yes, they have the samples of 2012 January releases. Unfortunately they will only sell the figures in April! Crying or Very sad Wink I want a lot of them, the river hog, gnu, giraffe, etc. bounce bounce
Well, April is not terrible to someone that saw for the first time the 2010 new figures in November 2011! Laughing geek

I don't know what the size difference is between the CollectA okapi and the Papo. Hope you can find out Roger What a Face
The Papo seems to be the right scale for your diorama Shawn and the Safari Okapi is ok too (the small version), just needs a repaint.

I've recently got the Safari WW okapi - simply the best in my mind! cheers for a smaller scale - Papo is a very good choice. :)

What a flashback whenever I see the Britains brands..that was what I grew up with as a young kid--they were the best. I wished I kept them.

Thanks for photos Martin

Laughing It's funny, I played with the STARLUX when I was young... They were the best Wink

I guess apples you eat at 20 years old have always a better taste than apples we used to eat at 40 years old Laughing drunken

Ahahah, I still don't have 40 years old but I will taste a apple and tell you. I haven't played with animal plastic toys but I love the 3 brands, Britains, Reisler and Starlux... and Veb Plaho... and Hausser Elastolin... and... affraid
But my choice is Britains because I still don't know the taste of a Starlux! Laughing I like my 2 Reislers but they are a little crazy! Rolling Eyes

I really like that one and bought it on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (?) instead of buying the full bag. Thanks, and I agree it will need some repainting. but I like the pose.
