Elephant Seal (Schleich - Sea Animals 1:32)
« on: January 04, 2013, 11:58:41 AM »
Walk-around of the retired Schleich Sea Animals 1:32 (or "Seetiere 1:32") Elephant Seal, Mirounga cf. leonina (Linnaeus, 1758). Total length is approx. 207 mm so the scale is approx. 1:20 - 1:32. The identification is only tentative and it could also represent the very similar Northern Elephant Seal, Mirounga angustirostris, which has a slightly longer but narrower proboscis. Human figures are approx. 1:30 (ranger from Safari Ltd. "Land Down Under Toob") and 1:22.5 scale (frightened man from Accoutrements "Horrified B-Movie Victims"), respectively.

Nice and realistic figure - thanks! I have been looking around for him oBay nut he seems to command rather high prices.  :(
It would also be cool to see him alongside Bullyland's elephant seals.

And Brontodocus, I'd probably feel the same if I were in the "frightened man"'s position!  :D

The scared guy's reaction seems pretty appropriate ;)

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Yes, after having been outbid several times I found this one BIN for €18 some four years ago. :-\ I don't have the Bullyland Elephant Seal, so I can not make a comparison shot. Oh, and of course the "Horrified B-Movie Victim" man has a good reason to be afraid...


But these figures seem to get into trouble all the time... ;D I think a human scale figures thread could be useful, anyway. I should post one, eventually.

Lovely figure and I like these funny human figures very much too :D I think I probably need some humans in my collection as well  ::)

I had some luck to find this sea elephant for not high price on ebay.de last year, I payed 9 euro for him or so  ^-^

Wow, congrats, €9 that's about what the figure originally sold for when it was still sold in stores. 8) I've seen it go for over €25 quite often.

It's from an entire set of frightened figures, named "Horrified B-Movie Victims" by Accoutrements. The set may still be available at some stores. :)

This figure reminds me of the new 2017 Papo figure, which I am very excited for.

Me too. :) While aparently Papo now distributes some of the Maia & Borges sculpts that were previously distributed by Schleich as their 1:32 Sea Animals, it seems the Papo 2017 Elephant Seal is an entirely new sculpt, though. And a very promising one, too. :)

brontodocus Thank you so much for all your walkarounds, and specially for reuploading all the pictures.  :D

I really like this elephant seal, and I can't wait to see the fight between him and Papo's. :)

Many thanks, arafan! :) Well, that can be arranged as soon as the Papo figure is out. ^-^
