It must be a very new set, I wasn't aware of it until now. :o Playmobil often releases new sets shortly before Christmas, somewhere around October/November. A few weeks ago I browsed the Playmobil shelves of a big store but I haven't seen it there. The gorilla has shown up in several other sets but I've never seen Playmobil okapis before.

EDIT: Oh, by the way, did you see that the Playmobil hyenas are sold separately now? ;)

I've already got them, of course, but the sold-separately ones are only available to Germany this year. So next year I can probably swell the clan up a lot!

Time to revive the Okapi & Giraffe thread! :)

I just finished the Canon Creative Park / Pinoart Giraffe cardboard model by Katsuyuki Shiga. This one is available as a free download but be warned, it is definitely not a beginners model and I had a hard time with some parts. :-\ Well, here it is:




Height is approx. 340 mm (would be approx. 355 mm if fully erect) so the scale would be approx. 1:14 - 1:17.
The last photo shows it in comparison with "Garth" & "Grace" from Noah's Pals and giraffes from Wildlife Wonders, Vanishing Wild, and AAA.

Nice, and unusual in that it's paper! Impressive patience there, I don't think I have it to make something like this one. Great addition to your herd ^-^

Many thanks altogether! :) It was quite hard work indeed and took some 15 hours or so to cut out, paint the cutting edges, and assemble. The gracile limbs were a nightmare to attach to the body because the connecting tabs are on the inside of the body and my hands are too big to reach them so I had to use quite a lot of different tools (tweezers, toothpicks, skewers, and an s-shaped metal rod) to glue them on.
