Miguel, that is a great starting! As long as you are used with Papo manufacturing, you will love Papo more and more. Very Happy
The tigress with cub is a remarkable figure, Gorilla has a very serious sculpting. The same for cheetah with a baby that looks like a baby. Pandas are also lovely. Thanks for showing! Very Happy

Good for you, Papo has some great models and that Gorilla just entered my wishlist! I don't like Cheetah's red eyes.

Those are wonderful models, - the tiger is almost a legend, I think cheers
You surely got a flying start with Papo Sad(o)):

Congratulations flower ...I hope you have room for A LOT of models, because Papo has made A LOT of extremely nice models Very Happy Very Happy

I must say I love the cheetah, even if the eyes are reddish-brown .
Googling for pictures, I can see that some cheetahs actually do have almost that dark colour eyes study

For me they are more "honey like colored" eyes. Real red eyes are more often seen in albino animals scratch Also I think Papo cheetah eyes are slightly too red study

As I commented on Schleich tread, most people only care if eyes look good, if a cheetah has yellow eyes that is not a problem, but red! Shocked If they are honey colored both are wrong, that is only a personal taste. Papo cheetah has a head corectly shaped, long legs, nice body, spots not very well painted but generally correctly placed, a pose that makes anyone think in a real animal and not in a statue. Papo cheetah is excelent, only needs a better manufacturing as usual with older Papo figures. The Baiala is also nice but honestly I can't find many as interesting as the Papo one. scratch

Roger, I didn't point the red eyes out to make you or someone else feel bad. I thought th Cheetah I have was just a mistake in colouring, but after seeing this post I guess it's not. I ordered the Cheetah a while ago via online store and when I got it the first thing I noticed was the red eyes, it looks like she's bleeding from eyes. And I wasn't talking about anything but the eyes, so sorry if my opinion doesn't match yours.

Bojan, disagreeing is a construtive exercise on a forum. You don't have to feel sorry with your comment as I don't have too once I think I'm justing giving an opinion. If I look irritated, what is not the truth, is because brands usually change some little things that are correct in real animals only to match with what is generally desirable and expectable for customers. I know I sometimes take these toys too seriously but this is because I love them and Wild Life. I know you understand me. I know a cheetah with blue eyes would look much better, would sell better, because people don't like them with reddish eyes. I honestly think it is fantastic to see the almost red eyes of a real cheetah with the black strips dripping like tears, it is just because I am not a gazelle! cheers Very Happy

Brilliant start! When Papo gets it right, they are spot on.

your photo of the tigers is yummy- the color and light are so dramatic!
(I love the cheetah too, but if i had one, i'd probably repaint the eyes and add the black "tears".)
