Thanks for the pictures, Numaan. The figures that really amaze me are these two Ostrich chicks and the two Snow Leopards. They are so cute. :)

Some interesting figures to see!study
Ostrich was a big miss in CollectA range, not in collections! But the snow leopard is a big surprise, I'm expecting a cheetah! Some horses look promisssing!
Unfortunately I will see it only in April, probabily!Sad

Thank you Numaan for the news and for having sent the photos!

I am very happy about the snow leopard of course and a little disappointed for the missing of hoofed animals....anyway I must say that Collecta is improving a lot and I am very impressed about the sea lion, the indian elephant, ostrich cheeks,angus bulls and the deers, very nice.Also the manatee family, very well sculpted...shall we see them in march probably(?)

The horses are too thin.... Neutral

I guess nobody gave the CollectA product designers the same memo they forgot to give the Papo product designers that FEMALE ASIAN ELEPHANTS DON"T HAVE LARGE EXTERNAL TUSKS!!!!!!
What's the animal figure world coming too...
Anyone know the size of the CollectA elephants? Oh, wait let me guess...
about 4" tall and about 6" long....

Oh yeah, and the sea lion looks like the old Schleich sea lon! What's the matter can't come up with a sea lion in a new position?

Where are you seeing it??? And let me see! What is the size of Papo African elephants??? Same of CollectA!
And why the Papo black swan has a knob in the bill??? Nobody told Papo sculptors that Black swans are not melanistic variations from mute swans???
And nobody told the Papo painters that kudus don't have simetric strips???
Do you want more???
Try to see the figures ignoring the name of the brand!
And enjoy yourself with CollectA nice figures too!cheers :)

Schleichzoo on the first page has photos from the catalogue.
I agree with you, I think ALL the product designers need to be better informed about their subjects.
I make no bones about it, I prefer Papo. For me once in a while Schleich makes a descent figure. I also like Safari LTD., especially their Wildlife Wonders series.
But, as I've stated before, I go back to my Britains zoo animals and when put together the elephants look fine next to the rhino, hippos, lions etc..
I won't be satisfied until I get some descent sized elephants.
I was merely pointing out that both companies made similar female Asian
elephants both with tusks. The elephant, unlike the kudu with symmetrical stripes(you can display kudu with stripes, so you can't see the other side if it's really an eyesore), but no matter how you position the female Asian elephant the tusks will always be there.
I can't really ignore the brand because I can pretty much tell who made the figure because they all have certain style. However, if I see a figure that I like
no matter what the brand is, I'll get it (example: like Safari's Indian rhino).

Where do you read CollectA made an asian female elephant confused .

On the catalogue it is only write "Asian elephant". Making males and calves are not a problem for modern companies elephant .

So maybe the problem is : Where is the mother ? Laughing

Check the first page of this topic, and Schleichzoo has photos from the CollectA catalogue.
O.K., so it would seem that since bull elephants are mainly solitary or live in bachelor herds, that an elephant calf(in this case an elephant calf figure), so it's only logical that it(the adult elephant figure) would be with it's mom(therefore, the product designers shouldn't have made a female with tusks!).
Once again, for me, I won't be satisfied until I have all my animals in proportion to each other(doesn't have to be exact, but just enough to make them look good together).

Read the CollectA catalogue and not Schleichzoo post. Wink

On the catalogue, CollectA only talk about an Asian elephant... Not a female.

Why an Asian elephant calf can't be with his father since some 2011 buffaloes and kudus calves lived only with their father Laughing Laughing Laughing .

If you need 1/20 elephants, then you may hunt the Bullyland. I made two topics about them :

Yes, I wondered what size the CollectA Asian elephant was. But I'm imagining it will be too small compared with the Schleich zebras - I'm going to try and sculpt an Asian elephant, so see how that turns out, then I won't have to look for an in scale elephant anymore cheers

All are on my wishlist accept for the sea animals and chimps.

Those horses are typical Deborah McDermott sculptures. Very expressive. I'm not usually keen on Arabians but those ones look nice.

So, if it is logical, could you please explain me why in my 2010 Papo catalogue there's an adulte black rhino with a white rhino calf???What a Face
This strategy for the kudu gave me an idea for the elephant, put her turned back and you will not see the tusks!Idea
CollectA has it's own space in the market, very new brand and already the best in birds and horses!
And about sizes, the best dioramas I'm seeing in this forum has wrong scaled animals, people uses the distances. in a diorama, you put almost always the smaller closer and the biggest farer. So, has the space for the diorama is not as deep as real life, the smaller scale of the bigger animals makes it looks farer, see it putting the giraffes behind all animals!

I don't use my figures for dioramas, anyway I will tell Ana to send me a half painted bongo to see if it gets cheaper!Idea

Harriete, I think CollectA Asian elephant will be smaller than the CollectA African elephant!
So, very small to your zebra!
If you want a picture from the CollectA african elephant near a Schleich zebra tell me.
But why are you using a zebra to compare with an Asian elephant???
