Pigs on Parade

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.

There are plenty of figures representing this species by major companies but I never found any that I've been 100% satisfied with. Fur detail was often too crude for my taste (e.g. Bullyland) or the finish turned out glossy (e.g. Papo) so actually this is the first representative in my collection. So here is a walk-around of the Safari Ltd Wild Safari Wildlife (Wild) Boar, Sus scrofa Linnaeus, 1758; item No. 2242-29. The Wild Boar has one of the most extensive geographical ranges of any artiodactyl and its native distribution reaches from Morocco and Portugal to Russian Far East, Japan, and Indonesia. It has also been introduced in e.g. southern U.S.A., Australia, and New Guinea. While the species became rare due to overhunting in historical times and even went locally extinct (e.g. in Britain), most populations recovered from the middle of the 20th century onwards. Originally inhabiting deciduous and mixed forests, the species is highly adaptable and can sometimes do surprisingly well in areas densely populated by humans: There is an estimated population of approx. 10.000 individuals in and around Berlin and specimens may enter gardens, parks, and are sometimes even seen in the streets. The Wild Boar has developed several subspecies within its extensive geographical range. While in Central Europe adult specimens measure approx. 1.3 to 1.8 m long (snout-vent length) and 0.7 to 0.8 m high (shoulder height), some record males in Eastern Europe (e.g. Caucasus and Carpathian Mountains) and Russian Far East (Ussuriland) have been reported to be much larger at 1.1 - 1.25 m shoulder height and up to 350 Kg body weight, rivaling or even exceeding the Giant Forest Hog, Hylochoerus meinertzhageni, as the largest extant suid species. Since it has such an extensive geographical range and is usually quite abundant, IUCN lists the Wild Boar as "Least Concern".

Snout-vent length of this figure is 90 mm and shoulder height 53.5 mm, so the scale would be approx. 1:13 to 1:15 for an average specimen from central Europe and up to 1:23 for an exceptional giant specimen (see above). Human figures are approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale (South American Father from Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo", the comparison photo shows the boar representing an average-sized specimen of 0.7 to 0.75 m shoulder height) and 1:20 (Minimen Andreas Köpke, here the boar figure would represent a giant specimen of 1.07 m shoulder height from Eastern Europe or Ussuriland), respectively. here is a link to Safari Ltd's Wild Boar at their website: https://safariltd.com/products/view/wild-safari-wildlife-boar-figurines-224229

Thanks, Jetoar! :) Yes, the fur texture was one of the main reasons why I needed to get this figure.

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.
