« on: July 29, 2013, 04:14:06 AM »
Mandarian Ducks are my only favorite Ducks. So im glad Safari made one for there Wings of the World collection. Its beutifully painted, and the purple has a shine to it.

Lovely figure!  :) I bought mine this year, since it's been discontinued I was fearing I might not get one, anymore.

It's one of the few bird figures I ave (don't know why, just not a big fan). But I really like how this one looks!

Hello friends, this is the figure of Mandarin Duck (Aix galericulata) Linnaeus, 1758 of Safari LTD - Wings of the World. Total lenght is 60mm. This figure was relased in 2005 and it is available currently.  Like many other species of ducks, the male undergoes a moult after the mating season into eclipse plumage. When in eclipse plumage, the male looks similar to the female, but can be told apart by their bright yellow-orange beak, lack of any crest, and a less-pronounced eye-stripe.






Safari LTD - Wings of the World have beutiful and amazing figures, but I think that this figure is one of the cutest figures of this collection. From my point of view, this figure is a accurate replica of this bird, because the details as great feathers, stand, proportions are perfects. Colours are very nice. It was a Saint Valentine´s present from my girlfriend ^-^.

A great figure for sure! :) However, I remembered we already had a walk-around by Takama so I merged both to avoid confusion. In general, I think the walk-arounds always benefit from photos taken by different persons and cameras. :)
