It's a great figure, and a great photo too, Fukuiraptor! 8) I feel I can't resist all those fine CollectA antelopes any longer.

Thanks all for the nice comments!  The backdrop is in fact a page from Safari's catalog ;)

These are awesome and may go for high prices today (especially the Snow Leopard)! 8) While the Vanishing Wild figures are sometimes a little sloppily painted the sculpts are amazing!

Thanks to everyone for the nice words.  I got my third lot of wildlife animals today: a pair of Schleich Giraffe and a few Mojos  :)

Both Collecta and Mojo's Giant Sable Antelope figures are well done, and each has its own strengths.  Collecta's version is more detailed but Mojo's looks noble.  What do you think?

Great collection, Fukuiraptor, and nice new additions.  :) In my opinion both Sables are magnificent but if I'm honest I prefer CollectA's because of the more active pose and generally more pleasing paint application. However, I like the face of the Mojo Sable, and they both make a nice pair.  :D

Put most of the wildlife animals in the display case.  Count how many animals are there inside?
