Some of us have already noticed, even caught Wink, the magnificent Brown bear produced by KITAN CLUB this year. On this Brown bear year ( 2 SCHLEICH and one PAPO), I think the Japanese one is at the top of the crown king

Here are a few pics !

I like the body sculpting very much, seems a real one. is much bigger than the safari one? (I don't know if you have it to make the comparison)

I like that figure since the first official pictures! It is an excelent bear replica and your pictures show it perfectly. It is only a pitty that it is from a Japanese brand. Very Happy

It's so perfect. They've captured the strange, shuffling grace of the species very well. I don't even care for bears, but for the craftsmanship of the model alone he shall have to go on the "shopping list".

Forgive me for being dim, but why is this a pity? Because of the puzzle aspect, ease of acquisition..?

I guess it is because it is less easily available Wink

I only have one Kitan Club model, which is very light.

It is puzzle, head + body, it is not hollow and the plastic is less brittle than usual Japanese models

Exactly Christophe! Very Happy
About being a puzzle is also something that I don't appreciate. Though, not dramatic in this figure. Very Happy

Wonderful walkaround Christophe!! I also received this model (and the Macaque) very recently. Honestly, I thought it was even more impressive in person. In part, the figure was heavier than I expected, more solid. As you pointed out, it's made of a slightly softer plastic than most of the Kaiyodo "puzzle" figures. It reminds me of the Yujin "puzzle" Tortoises I've purchased.

In an ideal world, they wouldn't have made it a puzzle animals. Since there are only two pieces -- the head and the body -- it'd would have been great if it were just one piece of plastic. But I think the Bear is fabulous as it is (seam and all). I even prefer the small size. (Joan, it's small -- a bit shorter and a bit less long than the old Schleich Hyena. I use that as a reference only because they are standing next to each other on my table.)

Agree cheers cheers 

Congrats Chris!

Kitan Brown bear come with a very good finishing on both sculpting & painting. But I think Papo grizzly bear is better sculpting. IMO Kitan beat papo by only painting.

I don't agree Ken Very Happy  PAPO grizzly is very nice but IMHO even in sculpting KITAN CLUB is more impressive Cool
