 My favourite bird :)!
 This one is about 'Kaiyodo Animatales'-sized.




















... compared to the Phat! Doki Doki Doubutu figure:

Rotten lungfish-murdering brute!  >:( 


It's a very nice figurine, though. Good job on the photos too; do you mind sharing your setup?

I'm sorry for the lungfish :-[ ;D, but birds are the crown of creation.

Do you mean sharing with the STS Forum? I could do that.

I believe Newt is interested to know how you made your brilliant photos, Helge. :)

And what a great walk-around you did again! :D It seems that your figure stands better than mine, I had to do some hot water treatment but it's still leaning a bit too much backward. Did I tell you that the figure is actually in the 1:20 scale range? From bill length and height of the figure I calculated a scale of 1:19 to 1:22. If I may add a photo together with the 1:20 Minimen Andreas Köpke:



So I hope this is good news for you (and for everyone else who is into collecting 1/20 scale animal figures).  :)

Great pic, Andre :)! After the shooting I realized that I forgot to take one with Andi. Thanks for sharing!

Oops ... it's a Sony DSC-HX100V, sunlight from transverse above, a piece of grey cardboard and a fat Picasso book from behind to curl the cardboard.

Another plus of this tiny figure :).
