That's a really nice figure--I really didn't recall that Papo was doing one--they've always done decent crocs.

Way better than the Schleich one.

Great gavial figure :) I really like this photo



It looks almost life like.

That figure is nice.

BTW TQ, your signature is cute.


back on topic.  I was wondering if Popo would make more crocodilians. Maybe we will get an alligator from them in the future.

Oh wow, it's as wonderful as I had expected! ^-^ I have this one on pre-order so it may already be at my home (can't check at the moment because I'm on holiday until  August 31st).

Beautiful figure, and beautiful photos. Nice idea with the lilypads, it's very effective.
One of my most anticipated 2013 figures.

Beautiful!

And surely you'll be entering the diorama contest, right, Postsaurischian?

I believe with photos like these your chances would have been pretty good to end up among the first three places, Helge! :)

One of the most intriguing crocodilians that ever exist, I'm so glad to have this figure. This one is on par with the Papo dinosaurs when it comes to all that reptilian scaly and bony details. Even the snout boasts the fine dentition only a fish-eater can demonstrate. Great model.

Papo's Gharial crocodile figure. It's a fantastic figure of this unique, endangered, and not often seen ( in the toy form) Indian species of crocodile.

Here he is with CollectA's American Alligator figure, another beautiful and well made figure.

A brilliant figure, indeed (and much better than CollectA's American Alligator which shows quite some disappointing inaccuracies). :) We already have a walk-around of Papo's Gharial made by postsaurischian so I merged your photos into it.

I got this figure fairly recently and I have to say that this is probably one of the best crocodilians in my collection.
