African Elephant, male (Schleich Wildlife, 14656)
« on: April 27, 2014, 07:56:53 PM »
Continent: Africa

Figure specs:
Length: 6.5"
Width: 3"
Height: 4"

This is the figure that started my Schleich collection off and it remains my favorite. I was surprised not to see it here. I love the detail in his wrinkly skin and trunk, around his eyes and his hooves. He is a good size and seems to be in close scale to other figures in the set.

Just got this figure today from walmart. He's my first Schleich figure. What can I say, I'm a latecomer. But I must agree that this is an awesome piece.

You're correct about the details and the scale he's in with the rest of the Schleich animals. But compared to the other toy lines, he seems a lil' smaller. Overall though, he's a great figure to have and if only I can just find the right Asian elephant to pair with him........
