Quote from: brontodocus on December 28, 2012, 06:08:55 PMThanks! If I'm not mistaken all the "1:32" Seetiere were produced by Maia & Borges in Portugal. Since Maia & Borges distribute figures on their own now and already have a marine animals line, here's hoping we'll still see new releases of the same quality. Judging from the few Maia & Borges I have they are excellent!

Though I kind of prefer white pectoral fins on the upperside. Then again, I guess both were done by Maia & Borges?Since the Schleich Humpback Whale seems to be retired, this one's a much cheaper version. Also, the Mojo version's tail flukes seem to be curved upwards slightly.

Quote from: Arctinus on August 20, 2020, 07:00:03 PMI don't have both versions, so I can't post the comparison photos, but (based on the Schleich photos, both the ones here and the ones I found online) judging from the photos the Mojo one seems to have the barnacles painted more accurately. That is, the Schleich one seems to have paint applied even in the adjacent areas, like a child colouring a colouring book. So I would say the Mojo one is a bit better at this, but still far from perfect.Also, the lighting in my photos is horrendous. The actual colour of my humpback whale is grey, not black.And I'm also bothered by the shape of its rostrum a bit, now that you've mentioned it and upon taking a closer look. The rostrum really is too triangular with straight lines and also too narrow. And it's huge. It doesn't really fit into my collection, but I still bought it because I wanted to have a humpback whale. I didn't like the Collecta one because of its paint job (but the size was perfect). The smaller Mojo one was too simplified (the size was ok). The Safari Ltd. one was too large and I didn't like its eye and its barnacles (though I really liked its pose and colour). It'll probably be replaced with another, smaller one in the future if/when a more accurate one gets released (that won't be too small or too big).
