I think it is really nice figure :) Someone did good job sculpting it :)

I've seen it once in shop and I remember paint job was no at all shiny. Actually it looked very nice. I'm thinking about buying this monkey for  my collection too :D 

Thank You for sharing so nice photos of this figure :)

Hmm, I've also noticed that Papo is sometimes a little inconsistent with the mattedness of their paints. My Papo Zebu is especially shiny. Maybe the Mandrill isn't always the same?

I think that's quite possible, some editions may be painted more shiny and some less  ::)

How does this mandrill stack up against the Schleich mandrill? I've the Schleich model but not the Papo one. Which one is better?
