Well, it IS a beautiful bongo.

Dean,
The Bongo and the Colobus are great looking. They will really add to your zoological garden.
John

I'm not entirely sure. All the reference material is in French and I don't read French. I'm guessing the 70s, but...?

That's wow. You really made a nice hunting last week. All of them are nice but my most favorite in this batch is the Flamingo family.

Some are from the 1960's and some from the early 1980's.

They are supposed to be 1:32... But like Schleich, the scales are not always correct.
They are smaller than Schleich and more like Britains.

$4,000 ! Some people are really crazy. Give me the adress, I will find more Starlux to sale... An average serious price for a "as new" bongo is 30 and the highest price I saw in france was 221 and it was already too much...

The one you buy is the 1728 Okapis from the early 1970's.
You can see the WWF one, from 1982, below



Attachment 10023

The medium flamingo at the right is not a Starlux, it is from another French company JIM
