I like them very much! They're just a different kind of monkey, or well, primate. Orangutans are actually apes not monkeys. (Okay, I'm a geek. :-[) Anyway, I think the adult is really cute and looks very much like a real orang! The baby could be more posable, but the pose it is in is very lifelike and I think it's cute.

The old ones you're referring to are the spider monkeys, I guess? http://playmodb.org/setpics/7897.jpg

i like all playmobil monkeys

when i saw the 'new' orangutan in a picture i thought it wasn't that good...but then i realized that (as it happens with many other sets) the box picture didn't do justice to it...now i have one and my zoo loves it :D

the baby orangutan doesn't convince me very much...it's not that small for him not to have movable legs or arms, even the baby gorilla can move!

it's good to see it now will come as an add-on :love:
Enjoy the elegance and fun of 1900 with The Victorians photo story! :gent: ;D :sherlock:

I think they are very cute! The orangutans have so much personality! You are not alone bb...

I just really wish they would do a dominant male oragutan, with a face like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pongo-Headshot.jpg

 :lol: Oh wow! I've never seen one like that before. I have a feeling that some people would like them even less if the PM version looked like that.
