Walk-around of the CollectA Sea Life Narwhal, Monodon monoceros Linnaeus, 1758. Total length including the 80 mm long tusk is 257 mm (measured to the median notch of the fluke) or 177 mm excluding it. The scale would be approx. 1:23 - 1:30. "Freddie the Free Diver" by Safari Ltd. is approx. 1:22.5 to 1:24 scale.
The last photo shows a side-by-side comparison of the similar sized Safari Ltd. MBA Narwhal with the CollectA figure.

She won't be disappointed! :) I was very happy to see that the sculpt is as good as the MBA figure and the paint job is even better.

I like this figure a lot. Especially the paint job is very well done :).
My only concern would be the soft material the tusk is made of. I hope it won't bend down over time :-\.

brontodocus

Thanks, Ana & Helge! :) I would have preferred a more rigid material, too. But like I mentioned here I believe using a less flexible material would have made it impossible to market as a toy due to safety regulations.  :-\ I hope the tusk won't bend over time especially since I store most of my figures in closed boxes and I fear evaporation of softening agents may even accelerate that. Thinking of it, I should probably store this one elsewhere...

Great walk-around (as ever) Brontodocus! He really is a splendid specimen, and the fact that he pairs quite nicely with Safari's MBA Narwhal is even better  :D I'm astounded at how good the sculpt and paint application is; definetly on my wish-list.
