Humpback Whale (Papo - Aquatic Animals)
« on: December 27, 2012, 11:53:57 AM »
Since I had most photos already done, here's a walk-around of Papo's Humpback Whale, Megaptera novaeangliae (Borowski, 1781) from their Aquatic Animals line or "Les Animaux Aquatiques". It's a hefty and large figure, in the same size range as the MBA and Schleich "1:32" Humpback Whales. Total length is 297 mm so the scale would be approx. 1:37 to 1:64 for mature individuals of 11 to 19 m length. The human figure by Preiser is 1:50 so that would make the whale 14.85 m which is more or less average. Similar to the Papo theropod dinosaur figures the Humpback Whale has a mouth that opens and closes. :)

Thanks, Adam and sauroid! :) It may not be as elegant as the MBA and Schleich figures but it still is a very good one, I think. The articulated lower jaw adds much to its playability.

Would you happen to have a side-by-side comparison with the MBA Humpback?

Lovely Humpback Whale model, not as good as the MBA one, but still beautiful.

Thanks again, CetaceanFan! :) I assume all photos in the first post were invisible (they were for me at least) so I fixed the broken image urls again. :)

Yep, that is true the photos were invisible to me too. But I saw the figure in postsaurischian's reply.

Great figure but I've got all the humpbacks I need ( Two Schleich 1:32 scale and Safari's 1990s model.)  :))
Don't I take long uploading photos!

Amazing humpback! If were not by the movable jaw, I think that I would keep it in my wishlist instead the one I chosen!
