Dugong (CollectA - Sea Life)
« on: February 07, 2017, 09:28:33 PM »
Walk-around of the CollectA Sea Life 88766 Dugong, Dugong dugon (Müller, 1776). The figure was one of CollectA's 2016 releases. Total length is approx. 142 mm so the scale ranges between 1:18 and 1:28. Human figures (Andreas Köpke by Minimen, Freddie the Free Diver by Safari Ltd, and standing man from Safari Ltd People in Motion Toob) are 1:20, approx. 1:22.5 - 1:24, and approx. 1:23 - 1:27 scale, respectively. Due to hunting and habitat loss the global population of Dugongs is in decline and as a consequence, IUCN considers the species' conservation status "Vulnerable".

I love this figure, depicting a pretty obscure animal

Thanks! :) As far as I know this is the first Dugong from a figure company outside of Japan (at least Kaiyodo and Takar Tomy A.R.T.S already made Dugong figures).
