I'm hoping it'll be a little bit bigger than the orca. I didn't like how the old orca was about half of the size of the gray, humpback and sperm whales.

Thanks! I do understand that they can't make it that much larger than the orca, maybe the paint job will make up for the size?

Hi all

I took photos from the Toy Fair - I visited last thursday and met with Papo, Schleich and CollectA who visited for the first time. I will post photos in the next day or so I promise - I took too many and none are of the highest quality.

What I can say is that I am a little disappointed with the Schleich sealife range - the models are almost the same replicas of the recently retired ones except for the new blue whale and turtle. AND they are all smaller and made of a softer rubber plastic! What is going on!

THe Blue whale is also quite small and I was hoping for it to be in the same scale as the recently retired humpback whale but alas it is not...oh well..will post photos soon!

Thank you! Softer rubber plastic similar to the Bullyland's "soft play" figures or like Safari Ltd.'s Wild Safari Sealife figures? As I've said before, I was also hoping that they would make the blue whale in the same scale as the retired humpback, but would any of the shops be willing to stock it as it would probably take up alot of room?

The moulding quality is superb as usual, the disappointment was the size of the whale and the plastic used to make the entire sea range - they were all made in china and from a slightly softer rubber which was much lighter.

I really hoped we would have a large blue whale model in the similar scale to oh well. Photos now posted on another thread so check it out Very Happy

Thank you! I figured the blue whale would've been the same size as the orca (or alittle bigger) because there wasn't that much difference in price. I just hope the plastic isn't too soft to where it'll break easy.
