Walk-around of the Maia & Borges Marine Animals (?North Atlantic) Right Whale, Eubalaena cf. glacialis (Müller, 1776). Total length is 140 mm, scale approx. 1:87 - 1:130. My favourite non-japanese figure of a balaenid whale. With the exception of the somewhat oddly shaped tail peduncle (it's too wide and those dorsolateral ridges shouldn't be there) it's a really accurate figure. :)

Nice figure, although the barnacles kind of look like it has scrambled egg stuck to its face :o

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

A little so, yes, probably. But that could be said about the Colorata DX North Pacific Right Whale, too. Okay, don't anybody dare to grind pepper over my figure and trying to bite a chunk out of it! >:( ;D

I like the details of this figure, one of the best figures of this whale.

Thanks, Jetoar! :) I like it much more than the retired Schleich Right Whale which looks nice but has an inaccurate head.

Walk-around images of M&B Right Whale are back again. :)

As far as accuracy, the flippers seem a little wavy to me.
I like turtles.

Yes, and flippers and fluke are also quite thin. Still I think this figure was better than Schleich's retired North Atlantic Right Whale.

A great figure of a great animal
Thanks, CetaceanFan! :) When it was released it was probably the best non-Japanese figure of a balaenid. However, there are more accurate figures now. My current favourite is the Safari Ltd WS Sealife Right Whale which has just been released. :)
