Default New Figures

I recieved some Safari models today. Included are the 2011 Indian Rhino, White Rhino and Humboldt Penguin. The indian rhino isn't as good as I thought. It looks very good from some angles, but looks to wide and plump from others. I will post pics this weekend, if any of you would like pics with other models just ask.

Congrats Andy, looking forward to seeing them. The rhino, they are wide creatures, does it look that bad? I've ordered one myself and was really excited about it.

It isn't that bad, from some angles it looks ok, but looking straight down it it it looks too plump. I think they could have stretched the body a little and distributed the weight more evenly. The detail in it is very good, I love the head. Perhaps I was expecting too much, you might love it, but there is something a little wrong to me.

Well, just have to wait and see, where did you order your animals from again? I got the rhino off eBay from America along with another Safari figurine that I've been wanting for some time...

I ordered a few figures from TGF, the postage was expensive, but the animals were worth it.

Default Rhino

Here is one I saw last December. I don't know rhinos to know whether it is a black one or a white one. Somewhere along the line its horn has been removed.

I am so sorry, I completely forgot to post pics, anyway here they are. I included pictures with the two old schleich indian rhinos. The other models I recieved are the white alligator, cape buffalo, basking shark, wildlife wonders orangutan and gorilla and the normal size Indian Elephant Cow. If you would like any other pictures just ask, I promise I'll remember this time.
