I finally bought the black vulture! What took me so long?
It's such a beautiful model, much nicer than in any of the official photos.



As you can see from this group pic, he very definitely belongs to the new generation of Bullybirds and has much more in common, stylistically, with the new bearded vulture than with the old whitebacked one. I'm pretty sure Bullyland changed their bird sculptor sometime around 2006, the older birds are much smoother and overall less detailed.



Of course I couldn't let the poor bird travel alone, so I recruited an experienced handler for him: Hodgesaaargh the falconer (anyone who knows where I got the name wins a bellyrub!). They seem to be getting along well... for now.

Congratulation, you are right, the new birds are far better than the older ones. I hope we will see more of them in 2013 Rolling Eyes

Congratulations Sumo! I love even more the cinereous vulture than the magnificent bearded vulture. :)
You're right, the griffon vulture is not as nicely finished but I also love it a lot! :)
Bully vultures are the Sumo of my birds collection! Very Happy Very Happy

Well done! cheers *rubs belleh and scritches behind ears for good measure*

(For those of you not in the know, Hodgesaaargh may not be the name on his birth certificate, but it definitely is how he introduces himself due to his unfortunate tendency of being attacked by his own birds...)
