Phew, there are so many really good ones. :) But I have to say my favourite one is still the Kaiyodo Mega Sofubi Advance Blue Whale. Not only for its accuracy or detail quality but also because it's a huge model that allows comparison with so many other figures that are in the 1:30 to 1:40 scale range (e.g. many dinosaur figures or elephants). Other than that I'd say the baleen whales from the Colorata Marine Mammals DX box are all excellent. Safari Ltd made wonderful whale models for their Monterey Bay Aquarium series although not all of them are of the same quality. My favourite MBA whales are the Humpback and Sperm Whale. The old Schleich Sea Animals 1:32 series had some excellent figures which were sculpted by Maia & Borges in Portugal and their Humpback, Minke, Grey, and Sperm Whales are all wonderful models. The new Safari Ltd WS Sealife Right Whale has also become an instant favourite for me.

Yep, you just listed the Cetacean figures that I wanted to list a little later (because i've became a bit busy recently).
But since I have some extra time right now, i'm going to list a couple more figures that I also really like.
All of Papo's Cetacean Figures are accurate and are one of my most favorites.
Favorite Co has some nice Whale and Dolphin figures (Sperm whale, Humpback, Pacific White-sided Dolphin, and Killer Whale)
Recur also has some nice Cetaceans like their Sperm whale, Fin whale, Beluga, and Orca or Killer whale.
AAA has some nice old and vintage Whale figures like Blue whale w/ closed mouth, Blue whale w/ open mouth, Right whale, and their newer Killer whale is also pretty good.
Collecta has some very accurate and detailed models of Cetaceans too, like Pygmy Sperm whale, Beluga whale, Pacific White-sided dolphin, Sperm whale, and Killer whale.
Yujin's Fin whale model is also very accurate but small.

I can only choose the Happy Kin Right Whale Dolphin. Hopefully I will acquire it someday.

I like the cetaceans with barnacles on them--because, like me, those cetaceans are collecting arthropods!!  8) :P ;D

And yes that's true, and I also like those types of whales.

Hehe, I might recommend you a few nice Right Whale figures then. Your collection will never be complete without whale lice or barnacles parasitising on whales! ;D

There are a lot of beautieful and unusual Cetaceans, but i think the solid Brydes whale and the Risso dolphin made by Kaiyodo are my favourites.
