Here we go, a look at the beautiful pair of Giant Sable antelope by CollectA. The figures are beautifully sculpted and painted and really captures the elegance of the animal.
First up, the Male










The female








The pair together. I decided to do them both since they were released as a pair. Originally, the two sculpt was both for the male, but due to overwhelming response from fans and listening to suggestions, CollectA released the second version as a female instead, a smart move ;)

They are wonderful and elegant! :) And we rarely (if ever?) get to see male and female of an antelope species as a figure made by the same company!

Yes, I would say these two are metonymic with a step forward in the history of mass-produced Antelope figurines :).

Metonymic?



;D

But it is an important step in animal figures (we always get families of lions, tigers, deer, elephants and other large mammals--for some reason  antelope get ignored the most in this aspect.

If I had been in charge of production I would have put the female in the male's pose.  :)
