Humpback Whale (Safari Ltd.-Monterey Bay Aquarium).
« on: July 07, 2015, 07:31:35 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeanglinae) Borowsky, 1781 of Safari Ltd.-Monterey Bay Aquarium. Total lenght is 400 mm. This figure was relased in 1992 and currently is avaliable. Found in oceans and seas around the world, humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometres each year. Humpbacks feed only in summer, in polar waters, and migrate to tropical or subtropical waters to breed and give birth in the winter.The humpback has a distinctive body shape, with unusually long pectoral fins and a knobbly head. An acrobatic animal known for breaching and slapping the water with its tail and pectorals, it is popular with whale watchers off Australia, New Zealand, South America, Canada, and the United States.







MBA of Safari Ltd have beutiful and amzaing figures, but I think that this figure is one of the best figures of this collection and absolubtely, the biggest figure of this line and heaviest too. From my point of view, this figure is a accurate reply of this mammal, because the details, stand, proportions are perfects. Colours are very nice.  I bought this figure one year ago in a store of my girlfriendīs town  ^-^.

I would even go so far as to say that the MBA Humpback Whale is even better than the retired Schleich Seetiere 1:32 16083 one. :) There seems to be quite some variation in this figure, possibly dependent on production year. I have two of them which are different in material and mass and also have quite different paint jobs.

Exactly, I think that it will be better than Schleich replica. My figure is of hard plastic  ^-^.
