Default New Papo buffalo

If you read the Safari post, I also recieved the Papo buffalo, so here are the pics of him, next to the Safari and Schleich African buffalo. The size is perfect for all three, with the Safari and Papo being just a tiny bit bigger then Schleich, and all of them are much bigger then the Treehouse Kids version. He isn't in the photo because I am still working on finishing his horns to make him a much younger version for the herd. I don't know why but in the pictures the Papo looks to be the smallest of the 3, but it is actually a little bigger then the Schleich and a bit smaller then Safari in height and length.

Here are a couple of photos, first just a pic of all 3 together.


Here is the herd facing the diorama, I'm thinking of moving them to the new part of the diorama where they will be on the edge of the scrub and moving toward the water hole. We will have to see once I actually put the new area up, for now they are up in the scrub, under the acacia tree.

Very nice! I was wondering how the Papo buffalo was size-wise in comparison to the Schleich.

Looks great Phil. I like that it is in a different position. Looks good with the others.

It looks really nice, in the second picture he looks so detailed. I would like to have it, but I have other things I'm trying to get first.
Congratulations on it Phil!

Definitely this Papo's Buffalo is better than the old Schleich's Buffalo. But we still need to wait for the CollectA's Buffalo as well.

Looking at the two of them next to each other, I think they are about the same, the Schleich has a pose of just standing there, while the bull by Papo looks like it is getting ready to charge, but as far as models go I think they are about the same in quality and look, and as far as size goes there is very little difference, like I mentioned earlier in the thread, the Papo is slightly larger then Schleich, but in the photos he looks a little smaller, that is an illusion.

CollectA's website has the new 2010 releases listed, but there is no buffalo. I am not sure why, or if that means there will be no buffalo on their new lines, but if they have one I hope it is as good as these three
