My favourite whale and next to the Goliath Frog my favourite figure from the Kaiyodo Red Data Animals: The Bowhead Whale, Balaena mysticetus Linnaeus, 1758. Total  length is 87 mm, scale approx. 1:140 - 1:230.

Looks like they made the upper jaw appropriately narrow, something I think a lot of other companies miss. :))

Amazing figure, in Spain the name of this animal is Greenlad whale "Ballena de Groenlandia".

Exactly, and there are so few good balaenids made... :( The only other Balaena mysticetus figure I know is from Play Visions but it has an upper jaw that is much too wide... :-\ Maybe Maia & Borges should make one, their 2012 Right Whale is excellent! :)

Similarly in German it's "Grönlandwal" with the same meaning. :)

Thanks, sauroid, it's perfectly fine! :) And it's still one of my favourites, too, even after this year's Safari Ltd and CollectA releases.
