Pigs on parade
I only have warthogs and Collecta's red river hog, and was going to devote a thread just for them, but I figured some of you collect other pig figures, both domestic and wild. So, this is now a general thread devoted to pigs, both wild and domestic. Since I don’t have other pigs, I will start of by showing my warthog collection.
I do hope that more wild pigs will be made as figures in the future, such as babirusa and warty pigs.

Thanks for this walkaround, Takama! While I am excited for this figure (and the pygmy hippo) by Safari, I have seen side-by-side comparisons of the two species as made by Safari and CollectA and I think CollectA's are a little better (or, I should say they appeal to me more for some reason). Still, I am definitely a 'Safari guy' and would definitely get this if I was a generalist.

I also prefair the CollectA one, that is better done... if only it was much smaller! A 8 cm babirusa figurine with the quality of the CollectA one would be inmediately in my wishlist for buying, hehe

I notice the tusks curve over so much that they penetrate into its own head. I know this happens occasionally in Babirusa, but is that what's meant to be happening in this figure? Or is it just the paint glooping (I apparently made up a word)?


Isidro

Neither. It's just for more easy fabrication/production/extraction from the mold. CollectA one is more accurate partly because upper tusks don't reach the head surface, just reach very close.

Ah, so it is intentional. Thanks. :)
