Quote from: brontodocus on December 25, 2013, 01:17:39 PMWhile it's another nice walk-around you posted there, Jetoar - I have to say when I bought mine I was somewhat disappointed. There are some angles (e.g. from the side) from which the figure looks good but some anatomical errors are too distracting for me. The snout is very wide at the cheeks and is tapering too much towards the tip. It should have an almost parallel sided, wide snout and even in a female it should not be tapering this much. The lower jaw looks too weak at its rear. The area between the eyes should not be elevated, the throat should only be that wide when its resting on the ground (when lifted up in the air the throat should droop), the front legs and especially the shoulder region look very weak. I wonder why only the midline of the belly is drooping and not the entire width of the belly. The osteoderms are well detailed and the paint job looks good but for me the anatomical issues prevail. Maybe I'm so critical about this figure because for me it was one of the most anticipated for 2013 which may have greatly contributed to my disappointment.
