It's called "Dragon Warrior". And the one on the horse is a "Ghostlike Rider".

Have no idea!

Trust Papo to get most of something right, and mess up on something basic

To answer your Chimera question, yes, the Greek Chimera did have three heads: a goat's one, a snake's one and a lion's one. But a few depictions also described it as "having a lion's head, a goat's body and a dragon's tail". In other words, a Chimera is recognisable by being a combination of three animals: lion, goat, serpent. And the Papo Chimera is a combination of those three.

wow,,thanks for posting those pics. The oryx looks great. One of my favourite animals. Will be nice to have on at last. That makes 2 nice antelope to look forward to, the sable and now an oryx.

Reindeer looks pretty nice too but the bighorn is disappointing. Looks off somehow.

It seems the Bighorn is more a Mouflon without the white saddle patch on its back...

see link above for Europe online. I got a note from the US Papo rep who said they will not be available--i am guessing in the US--until early march and the Oryx I am looking for will not be available until June.
