PostSubject: Paraceratherium: FOUR TOES!?   Sat Aug 11, 2012 8:34 pm

Hi!
Yesterday, I had the joy to finally receive my own CollectA Paraceratherium.

However, I got annoyed with one detail, not shown in the advertising pictures: THE COLLECTA PARACERATHERIUM HAS FOUR TOES PER FOOT. I'm a little annoyed, because on the tag, it is said that each model has been approved by specualists. What specialist doesn't know paraceratheriums are perissodactyls? Rhinos have three toes per foot and paraceratheriums WERE rhinos. So, what happenned? Why such a big mistake has been produced unnoticed? I don't understand. Does anyone do?

Now that is just sloppy. scratch
I feel like we should let Collecta know, then again I can't believe they haven't noticed the problem already.

I'm glad I'm not the only one counting toes on the forum! Laughing
I like the paraceratherium and I confess I forgot to count them in this case. Maybe excessive enthusiasm at the moment of the acquisition. We find wrong toes in crocodiles, elephants and other figures of similar brands. Those are details that are usually ignored while judging the quality of a figure but shouldn't be.
By the way, have you ever counted the toes of a tapir? Very Happy Wink

Shocked No ! But now I googeled, they should have four in the front a three on the hind legs study

Papo and Schleich have it right. My Starlux has three on all four legs. They are the only ones in my collection scratch

Unfortunately this isn't the only "toes mistake"by collectA. I realized that their donkey foals have legs more like goat not horse relatives : four fingers in every leg affraid affraid affraid

Safari is also correct and I didn't know about the Starlux.
I was talking about it because they are mixed... even-toed and odd-toed at the same time.
Anyway we know they are perissodactyla. It is also interesting what Ana pointed about the donkeys. I think there are some more! Laughing

What puzzles me, is that the feet of their Agustinia are absolutely perfect, with a claw on the "thumb" and hooves on the other feet; and at the same time, they forgot to make it a realistic head, and the nose of their Agustinia looks a little like a worker's boot... so, how come they make perfect feet when the head looks comical, and a perfect head when the feet look comical? scratch

I have brought this to the attention of CollectA and will see if they can do something about this. Fingers crossed.

Little details can indeed sometimes be missed and errors like this can occur across different brands. Lets see.

thanks Very Happy

That's great Numaan! As you told, little errors like these we can find lots of them in other brands. :)
A brand that tries to fix an error according with collectors request are not so easy to find and I'm glad CollectA is one of them. cheers
Fingers crossed and good luck! bounce

Yes, thanks Roger. The Giant Sable Antelope pair face markings have also been amended. Will post pictures when I have a free moment.

You are right. Big mistake in modelling.

Look at the german shepherd puppy. This is an another big mistake.

Does anybody has the Megacerops? He is a perissodactyl, too, but an early forme. Early perissodactyls have four toes on front feet, but three on the hind feet.

I have the Megacerops, it has four toes on front and three on hin feet. Wink

Not only early perissodactyls have this feature, tapirs still have it !

Yes, you are right. But tapirs are an old family. ^^

I have the megacerops now, its a great figure. And i got the rhinos from collecta and there also big mistakes. Both, the white rhino and his calf, have BALLS. Rhinos don't have visual testicles, they are inside their body.

About the COLLECTA white rhino, it is only a small mistake, especially for the calf Laughing
