Never heard of this brand...
Could you post photos of these penguins near some Schleich figurines to see the scale, Doc?

Some more new acquisitions of Wild Republic ! I bought this rain forest set 2 days back . This set has quite interesting figurines - Tapir , Sloth , Mandrill ,[ I was longing for these 3 animals ] okapi and Leopard . All these are well detailed and painted , strong hollow plastic . Generally these poly bag sets are bigger and not in scale with schleich . No matter , they are for sure , collectors' items , that too branded .

As Kiryuha asked for the scale comparison with schleich , I will take pics of both shortly and post it . I have n't opened it yet from the pack , brand new stuffs .

My most favorite among this Rain forest Collection Bag Set is the Giant Sloth. Then, followed by the Malayan Tapir.

Their Australian Collection Bag Set and the Asian Sets are is also nice to add into your Penguins and this new Rain forest collections, Doc.

Default Polar tube set !!!

Here comes the Polar tube set . Some of the animals in this set are dam good , especially the seals , the furred and spotted seals , Penguins , polar bear and mainly the arctic fox [ my favourite in this set ]

As I said else where , each animal figurine has a brilliant texture to touch and feel esp. the furred seal , Penguins and polar bear . Their expression is too cute and realistic . Pls, have a closer look .

Here we go for the pics .
