Sumatran rhino is not the prettiest of the extant rhinos  ^-^

And yes, the second rhino is indeed by Joan Milelire, part of limited edition of beautiful figures.

Okay, definitely too many horses for my taste, too, and not too many figures I really want to have... however, I'm happy to see a nice African Civet, a beautiful Muskox, Sperm Whale and Blue Whale which look far better than their predecessors plus a nice looking Gray Whale (I might end up getting all three). :) Oh, wait a moment... we're talking about CollectA, aren't we? No antelopes? :o
;D almost no antelope, but it is CollectA after all , so we do get one, the Bongo calf! ^-^ it's awesome!

The only mammals/extant animals from Safari I will be getting this year, the others are easy pass for me ^-^

At last, a Sumatran rhino! This is the last of the extant species to be represented in large toy form from on of the major brands.
It's a beautiful figure and well worth the wait. Unfortunately, the species id critically endangered with so few left in the wild and even fewer in captivity. The future is unfortunately not so promising for this rare and ancient beast.

With it long extinct close relative, the Woolly rhino

CollectA / Bongo Antelope ( CollectA)

My prayers has been answered, thank you CollectA for producing this beautiful figure! I have been praying for a Bongo figure forever, and finally!
It's an impressive figure! It is larger than the Kaiyodo stury room figure.

Impressive figure of one of the most majestic antelope and also my favorite.

Now, CollectA should do some prehistoric ungulates :)

CollectA / Saiga Antelope ( CollectA)

Another first ( I think), the highly odd looking and endangered Saiga antelope finally has a figure!
And it's a beautiful figure! I'm so happy that CollectA chose this one, it truly deserves a figure.

With the Chiru, another high plains and highly endangered antelope. CollectA really has the best collection and species diversity of anteopes! I hope they keep on making them!

CollectA invasion :D
Finally got the new CollectA figures. I tell you, they are simply amazing! Can't appreciate enough how CollectA keeps on releasing animals that are unique and obscure. Choosing a favorite is hard since they are all beautiful, but if I had to, it will be the Hirola and Tylacine.

All together now

CollectA / Hirola Antelope ( CollectA Wild Life)
« on: August 03, 2016, 08:23:35 PM »
Another unique and obscure species of antelope joins the CollectA herd -Hirola Antelope also known as Hunter's Hartebeest.
Sadly, the Hirola is also one of the most critically endangered antelope in Africa, with a population estimate of 600 animals left in the wild.
Like many critically endangered animals, habitat loss, poaching, and drought are the main threat to it continued survival in the wild.

With the other African ungulate, the equally endangered Grevy's Zebra

also in the photo is the adorable baby Eland

And now, we have a very unique and obscure species of antelope courtesy of CollectA, the Large Nilgai Antelope.
The Nilgai or also know as Blue Bull,is the largest of the Asian antelope and is endemic to Indian continent. There are now feral population of this antelope living freely in parts of the American South ( Texas) where they were introduced and trophy animals for hunting.

Here he is with another Indian antelope, the black buck

And here we have CollectA's Grevy's Zebra, part of 2016 collection.
Beautifully sculpted and a nice change from the typical zebra species that we get.
The largest of the zebra species and unfortunately also  the most threatened species.

Here he is with the other African Animals from the 2016 collection

CollectA / Tylacine ( CollectA Wildlife)
« on: August 03, 2016, 08:00:13 PM »
CollectA's version of this magnificent animal with a tragic story.
This figure is beautifully done, the best figure out there by far. For a change, it's nice that this figure is a female and with a baby :)

With Mojo's - they make a nice pair, just so happened that Mojo's is a male ^-^

My Collection

And with CollectA's other marsupials

Once again, AMAZING new lineup for 2016! Wow, love the new ungulates, about time someone did a Nilgai and Hirola! Now, CollectA, can we have a Bongo and Saiga antelope for 2017, pretty please? :)
Can't wait for these figures, that thylacine is awesome!

I like the pangolin, pelican, and oryx - others are, well, overdone already  ^-^

Having acquired some nice asian animal figures recently, I figured I should start a collection thread of those figures currently in my collection. Most will be mammal.
