Ganges River Dolphin (CollectA - Sea Life)
« on: February 14, 2013, 04:25:21 PM »
For me this one was one of the most anticipated figures to be released this year. Here's the walk-around of the CollectA Sea Life Ganges River Dolphin, Platanista gangetica (Lebeck, 1801). Total length is 135 mm, so the scale is approx. 1:15 - 1:19.

I completely agree, Jetoar! :) I wasn't overly impressed by some of their previous Sea Life figures (e.g. Sperm Whale with an apparently too wide lower jaw and such) but this year seems to be very different! 8)

Yes, and they have done a great work with other sea life figures as Zebra shark for example, that I think that it is better than Safari figure  ^-^.

Although he's beautiful and CollectA have once again excelled themselves I can't help but notice those whopping great join lines cleaving across his face and jaw - completely detracting from the otherwise unique and pleasing figure they've created.  :-\ Great pictures, thanks Brontodocus.

The seams aren't bigger than in other figures but they are admittedly more obvious here than they would be on a larger whale figure. :-\ The proportionally large stamp on the underside could have been a little smaller for my taste, too. But I can forgive about that, it's the first time I see a Platanista figure and such an accurate one, too.

Yeah, I do think it's a shame that they are so detracting but they are essentially minor quibbles because it's such a fantastic figure and species.
