Amazing antelope figure friend. Collecta is the antelopes figures makers from my point of view  ^-^.

Wonderful! :) Could it be that this is the first Scimitar-horned Oryx figure ever?

Safari did one a few years ago, but I like this figure much better  :)

Safari has an Arabian Oryx in the Wild Safari line and briefly had a Gemsbok in the Vanishing Wild collection, but this is the first Scimitar-horned Oryx by any of the major brands

This one and the Safari Oryx are nicely done, if a bit larger than the other antelopes. The textures are well sculpted and the subtle coloration adds to their realism. Can't wait to get the Papo Gemsbok to complete this trio orixio.

If you're into scales or displaying your figures with similarly scaled figures, this is the Oryx to own, as, if memory serves me correctly (I don't have the figure with me right now), it scales around 1:20-ish; whereas the Papo and Wild Safari are closer to 1:14 or 1:15. If I'm wrong, please correct me publicly & with great spectacle, as I don't want to contribute bad info. But I think I'm right.  :o. And if so, it scales well with most Schleich/Wild Safari/Papo, etc in the 1:22 ouvre.
