No Longer Looking for the Papo Giant Anteater
« on: September 17, 2020, 03:37:57 AM »
Hi all, I'm looking for this Giant Anteater from Papo. I've already checked eBay, and the only there has incredibly high shipping. If anyone has one for sale, please, let me know.

I'm located in the US.



Update: I just bought the older safari figure, apparently this one's almost impossible to find.

I can't help, but wow that is an impressive figure. I didn't know of its existence; I bought the Safari one when I built my collection.

I bought such for my son a few years ago... indeed a nice figure, though a little skinny around the belly. But it may be discontinued, none of "my" German suppliers lists it anymore. There should be a new Schleich one in `21 though.....

Oh, I didn't know Schleich was going to make one. I might have to check that out when it releases, but I find a lot of Schleich's recent animals a bit too cartoonish.

Also, I've actually quickly given up on this Papo figure. Apparently, it's incredibly rare, so I got the 2005 Safari figure.

That's the one I have, and frankly I think it's great. Mine has a better paint job than the one currently photographed on the Toy Animal Wiki site.
