KAIYODO made two Bottlecap Penguin series. In the second one you can find the only Yellow-eyed penguin figurine I know. The scale is between 1:13 and 1:15

The yellow-eyed penguin (Megadyptes antipodes) or Hoiho is one of the most endangered of all penguin species. It is native to New Zealand. Previously thought closely related to the Little Penguin (Eudyptula minor), molecular research has shown it more closely related to penguins of the genus Eudyptes. Like most other penguins, it is mainly piscivorous.
This is a mid-sized penguin, measuring 62–79 cm long (third largest penguin). Weights vary through the year being greatest, 5.5 to 8 kg, just before moulting and least, 3 to 6 kg, after moulting. The males are larger than the females. It has a pale yellow head and paler yellow iris with black feather shafts. The chin and throat are brownish-black. There is a band of bright yellow running from its eyes around the back of the head. The juvenile has a grayer head with no band and their eyes have a gray iris.
The Yellow-eyed Penguin may be long lived, with some individuals reaching 20 years of age. Males are generally longer lived than females, leading to a sex ratio of 2:1 around the age of 10–12 years.
they are not particularly sociable, breeding in spaced-out territories in the forest rather than the close-knit colonies of other species. Pairs are monogamous and stay together for life. The breeding season is particularly long, beginning with courtship in August; the clutch of two eggs is laid in mid-September to mid-October on a nest constructed from sticks. Both parents help to incubate the eggs, which can take up to two months. For the next six weeks the adults will take it in turns to stay with the chick whilst the other forages for food.

Late hours topics sometimes even get lost. Sad I'm glad people found it. Although our North American community is the largest, we have a very European style of use. Very Happy
I love that figure for many reasons. Great species, fantastic pose, good figure. Very Happy Your pictures are excelent and maybe the not cute conformation of this animal explains why major brands never made it. It is a penguin slender than usual with a somewhat "agressive" facial expression. scratch
Only a little detail about your excelent description. I think this is the 4th largest species being the 3rd the Gentoo penguin. I may be wrong although I've read it on ADW. study I hope you find more from these series and that we have the chance of seeing more walk arounds from them. cheers

You are right Rogério, the Gentoo is bigger. Embarassed Wink

I would love to catch more of these KAIYODO penguins and I probably would if I didn't spending money for odd SCHLEICH cape penguin and others... Laughing

Laughing It looks Gentoo were smaller before but they started growing these last years, you know, these modern Gentoos eat a lot of hamburgers and they don't stop surprising us with their sizes. Laughing Wink cheers
I think others are more the problem, cape penguin is a nice and unusual release. Very Happy

They are available on eBay and are often expensive. The path is "Collection- Animal- and tape KAIYODO"

The other places to buy some are in Japan. Wink
