Surprisingly, there aren't that many figures representing this magnificent, gigantic tubenose bird so I was very pleased to see CollectA released one this year. So here is a walk-around of the CollectA Sea Life Wandering Albatross, Diomedea exulans Linnaeus, 1758; item No. 88765, new for 2016. It's quite large for a regular bird figure, body length would be approx. 95 mm and wing span approx. 224 mm if both were fully spread out so the scale would be between approx. 1:12 and 1:14. The human figure (South American father by Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo") is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale. Over the last 70 years the global population of Wandering Albatrosses has declined by about one third and IUCN lists the species as "Vulnerable".
