Wow, another figure that makes me wish Papo's could still be bought in Iowa…. Every place in Iowa that i've been to that used to sell Papo have all replaced them with cheaper Mojo figures. :'(

This is surely one must-have antelope figure! :D And seeing it next to the Greater Kudu, it seems also bigger than expected.

Well, I love Papo but I'm too disappointed with this impala. The colour isn't even similar to the reality and those hornes are so big... I was waiting for more realistic piece.

Just out of curiosity, why is the Papo Kudu and Gemsbok sooo big. They're like the size of their elephants!

I think the Papo kudu have the perfect size. Is the Schleich one who is too small. The Papo impala is too big and this is one of the reasons that made me not wanting this figure in my collection (the other reason is the horns). The Papo gemsbok is certainly too big. And all elephants from every brand are too small!

I'm surprised there aren't more Impala figures; they're one of the quintessential African antelopes!

Well, to companies it's just a brown antelope that lives in Africa. There are so many ugulates that live in Africa so not everyone can make everything.  :)
