Hi!
As you already know, I always love when someone releases an obscure critter. I just loooovvveee RESEARCH!!! This is what Bullyland did when they released their Dryads. Here is one of them:

I personnally think they are GOLD MEDAL WINNERS in 2012's BEST TOY FIGURINE RELEASED!!!! They represent something unusual, they are very accurate (represent well what the legend says) and beautifully detailed. 2012 NUMBER ONE!!! cheers

Nice topic Valerie, thanks for starting :) I see this Dryad for the first time scratch study
My favorites are Eland and Waterbuck by CollectA, giraffes by Bully and Iberian Lynx and Hippo female by Mojo, still any of them in my collection scratch
I could add more or much more Laughing
I think it is good year for animal figures collectors, many good releases Very Happy It will be easier for me to choose real FAVORITE when I will have more of them in collection, it's always better to see figures in person before choosing Laughing

Dryads belong to the Celtic mythology. Theyare spirits of the forest that look like young women, but featuring vegetal parts along their arms, legs and hair; they are part human, part vegetal. They are not immortal, but can live for hundreds of years.

I agree if we talk about the horses, but the pogona lizard is also beautiful. it is very detailed.

if you hold it, it really feels like a lizard Razz

Dryads are Greek, if you want to be pedantic, but similar figures are found in several mythologies (probably dating back to the earliest human cultures).

It's really hard to choose this early, especially when only today I received a package from TGF with a whole bunch of the new CollectA figures. (The horns on the Giant Eland and on the Waterbuck are mangled. I'm annoyed about that.)

Not only are that, but my favorites change from day to day. But I will say that the CollectA Giraffe, which I got a while ago, continues to impress me. And I agree with Anna above that the Mojo Hippo is just awesome.

From the group of animals I just received and have barely had a chance to look at, this is an early favorite:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The CollectA Striped Hyena. I think CollectA has been amazing this year. In any other year, Mojo would have run away with the prize instead of tying with CollectA or being a close second. But I think CollectA's best models are inspiring.

That's awful Scott, are they sending you replacements?

That collecta giraffe is so beautiful, I really can't wait to get it (I'm not so keen on the calf) and of course their Okapi is a must for me.

From Papo's wildlife this year, their wild sow is gorgeous.

Bullyland : Fallow deer

Papo : Cassis Lapdog

Mojo : The Fjord horse

CollectA : The GNU

AAA : The red pandas

Maia & Borges : Red -throated loom

I decided not to ask for replacements and just try to unmangle them myself. I'm optimistic. Both the Eland's and the Waterbuck's horns seem to be righting themselves nicely so far. :) (Thank you for your thoughtful inquiring though. sunny )

Susanne, all your choices are very interesting but I'm glad you introduced M&B among them.
I still have not a favorite but your choice is very good.
A bucolic expression in a piece of plastic that balances dramatically a bird in a prosaic pose standing in an romantic bank of roses! Very, very good! flower

I like this one from Safari Ltd. (The pic is from their flickr site; that's why it has the labels.) So realistic, right down to the texture.
