I've not seen this figure before is it a new release? I like it but it reminds me of a party I went to years ago where there was some fella in a bear suit dancing badly to Abba tunes!

He's new for 2013. Papo have done a terrific job on his sculpt and distinguished him for the competition with that unique but classic pose. It's a pity that his paint colours aren't quite as the stock images show; his solid brown renders him more figure-like and diminishes Papo's otherwise great attempt.

That's right! Papo always re-colour their stock images (other brands do it too, of course).
That's one reason why our walk-around section is of importance!

I like the Grizzly anyway :).

Lovely walk-around photos as always, Helge! :) This was one of the Papo figures I instantly needed to buy, too. I like the fact that although rearing it looks quite gentle. And a bit silly, too, since its tongue sticks out a little. ;D

Oh this is getting added to the top of my wishlist! If only he was roaring, he'd be in the exact pose of my husbands tattoo when we got bear tattoos together as a family in Gatlinburg Tennessee! Love the uniqueness of this figure!
