We have seen any comparison topics and any "battles". So i think we can discuss here what the best figure of the different species are.

So i will start with the Papo Puma :)

Sounds good, we can have battles between forum members about what the best one is Very Happy.
To start one, I find the Papo's bum a bit large. I don't have either, but how about the Mojo puma?

I'd love to see a Battle of the Generations among members on forum. Laughing
Actually, that's a hard choice once there's no perfect puma to choose. If it was an Eurasian lynx as in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], it would be easier.
I also think the Mojö Fun young female is the best candidat although I use also the newer Papo, at least it is an adulte.

Somehow I like the older Papo mountain lion . It is one of the few with the right size head, and the pose is quite unusual , almost playing Very Happy

Interesting topic as I asked myself this question. Someday, I maybe will replace some older models by newer ones. This is sureley the case for the most common figurines: Lions, Tigers, Zebra, Bears or Elephants. So, I really enjoy discussions about those presentations and why some users decided to puchase for example the CollectA instead of the Papo :)

Not much agreement about the puma, lots of battles to be fought Wink OK, the Safari and newer Papo puma don't look bad. Fortunately, Pardofelis doesn't like battles Very Happy

The Breyer puma isn't on TAW, what does it look like?

Here is a picture of one of the Breyer pumas from Kosta's collection.
You can see more on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Actually, it is not easy to list Breyer following TAW standards. For example, both this puma and the fox, belong to sets with horses.

, I just think if Andreas ask for the best golden jackal on market, we will surely agree with Pardo that it is not a debatable thing. Wink

I don’t own any pumas but looking at the pics I have to say the Breyer puma is the winner in my eyes, followed by the Papo puma.

I love my Breyer cougars Very Happy
But from the major brands, my favorite is the older Papo Puma.
A small , but very well made it model.
The newer one has a better size and also a nice poze..
But it has also a lot of problems with the right proportions.. That`s why , I long ago, I started to customize it, but I didn`t finnished. Maybe one day I will and I will show it here :)
And actually I just check the topic, which Roger shared and I saw that we are a lot more fans of the Papo older Puma Very Happy

The Breyer puma certainly looks very interesting. It's often difficult to get a good impression of a figure from a single photo, so great to see it in Kosta's walk around topic.

I see that we gave our opinion for the Puma,
which will be the next animal ?

What about a Polar bear ?
If you like this suggestion, I will start with my favorite models..

I like very much the Safari Ltd Wildlife Wonders :

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

...but it`s very big..

I also like very much the kaiyodo Wild Rush Polar bear :

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

...but it`s very small ...

So, form major brands , my choice goes to Papo standing Polar bear :

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Which one is your favorite ? :)

Polar bears cheers

There are so many great models, it is hard to pick one scratch

But there are two I love, both from Papo. One is the one standing on his hind legs, as shown just above.
Still, I think  the older one sniffing the air ...
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
has so much charm and monumental power, that it is my no one drunken

Of course it helps too, that it was a gift from Roger, and one of my very first ( THE first ? ) Papo models Wink

Just as Susanne, I also will choose a gift. My favourite is the Papo standing Kosta is showing and it was exactly Kosta who gave it to me. Laughing However, for a long time, my favourite was the Safari polar bear sculpted by Doug Watson that I have in my collection. I want also to mention the 2013 Papo polar bear walking that I like a lot although I never acquired it.
Both pictures below are from Susanne's collection.

For some reason the Papo polar bears just do not look right to me (although I’ve never seen the old one sniffing the air before and I do have to say that I very much like that model). I currently have the old Schleich female polar bear (eventually to be replaced), but my vote definitely goes to the Doug Watson sculpt by Safari.

I don't have the Papos and the Safari because they don't have the 1:32 code, so it's difficult to form an opinion. Until three days ago, I was sure that the Kaiyodo Wild Rush was the best with the 1:32 code, but then I got this Colorata and now I don't know anymore:

Perhaps the Kaiyodo looks better in photos, but in reality they are both excellent even though they look quite different.

For me, the best cougars are safari and breyer. The best polar bear I have is the safari, but I'm hoping my papo standing model arrives soon. bounce
