Tigress, large (Papo - Wild Animal Kingdom)
« on: September 09, 2016, 07:36:41 AM »
Papo has started releasing large scale figures of animals and the first in line is the 2016 Tigress, Panthera tigris (Linnaeus, 1758); item No. 50178, new for 2016. This figure is almost twice as large as Papo's regular Tiger figures e.g. this one and very similar in size to the Safari Ltd Wildlife Wonders Tiger (see photos below). Snout-vent length is approx. 207 mm, tail length approx. 115 mm, and the shoulder height is approx. 108 mm. Therefore, the scale is something between 1:8 and 1:10. It is also quite a heavy figure, mine is 473 g. Over the last two decades the global population of tigers has declined from an estimate of 5,000 to 7,000 in 1998 to a little over 3,000 individuals and the species remains "Endangered" according to IUCN.

The sculpt is pretty good, but the paint work is pretty bad. Those stripes are especially terrible. And this is a 2016 figure, they could've done so much better with the paint job. The sculpt is great, but the paint job ruins it. :(

I see your point, the paint job does not do the figure's sculpt quality justice.
