I wanted, and Roger wanted too, to show you a few pics of the COLLECTA new giraffe.
IMHO it is a very very good model. I even think it is a BIG improvement among the Modern manufacturer: At least a Giraffe with a nice size (still a bit too small...) with elegant and accurate proportions.
So here are a few pics...
Scale 1:23 to 1:28.  Wink

The walking giraffe with a bit drooping neck history.

This pose was used a few times in the past, I think it is very elegant and I wanted to show you the models I have.  Very Happy

Thanks again Christophe! Very Happy
You are an efficient macaque! Now the forum is filled up with little Torbens and you've found time to give another great walk around. cheers
2012 is not only a good year because of the new species we are receiving but also because of the good releases with common species. That giraffe is a very good example, Look at these legs, little hooves, nice painting with a good finish, pose is nice and size goes very well with other large fauna figures, like hippos, rhinos or crocs! Very Happy
There are other common species that I love in 2012, the Papo wild sowl, Mojo hippo and rhino, etc. Very Happy The CollectA brown bear would also surprise me too but still waiting! bounce Very Happy

You are right Roger and I wish it will be even better for common species in 2013 cheers .
About the brown bear, it climb to my wish list top 3... It's funny to see how a model increase his powers of seduction in a collector mind.
2012 was not only a good years because of improvement on common species and production of new species... It is also a good year for new species who become common, like the sables Laughing

Yes, 2013 will turn another unusual species in a common species but I promised I would not Laughing make suspense comments anymore so...!!! Laughing The sables turned so common that Mojo anounced a giant sable, CollectA also released a giant sable, but Safari decided to make a common sable! Very Happy

New CollectA models seem to have drastically improved since the last time I saw this brand in shops here.
