PostSubject: Finally, the Fjords!   Finally, the Fjords! EmptyWed Oct 02, 2013 4:10 pm

So I'll start this off saying that unfortunately no store near me carries CollectA brand. Safari is everywhere, there's two Schleich retailers fairly close, and another Schleich retailer much farther away. And another store a little farther away that has Safari and Mojo. And then there's the internet. Oh, the internet. Every brand and no brand. Laughing Collector's dream and sometimes nightmare. Razz 

As a mainly Schleich collector, when I discovered the CollectA horses (thanks STS! cheers ), I was in awe. We all know how Schleich has been doing with their horses in the past years. Rolling Eyes 

I had been trying to get the fjord stallions from CollectA since the release dates, but even a while after that I couldn't get a hold of them. When I did find one, the shipping was ridiculous. But, I finally found them! bounce Very Happy 

Here are the beautiful stallions that arrived the other day: (I apologize for the wrinkly backdrop, and I see the first photo is a little blurry)

You can see here that for some reason the dun's leg doesn't reach the ground. Neutral

These were my first CollectA figures I purchased, and I'm very happy with them!

We'll see how they do in the model horse show I'm going to enter them in... they'll be competing against each other! bounce bounce

I completely agree Laughing 

And great you finally got the models you wanted so bad! They are a great choise. I have only the Brown Dun, and he does also have the issue with his legs.

Principesc additions! flower
CollectA Fjord is a great horse, it has an interesting sculpting. To be better CollectA only need to be easier to find and solve this problem with bendable legs. Very Happy Very Happy

Did you try H & H Winners Circle? They carry CollectA and many others, not just Stones and Breyers! I just checked their site and found the Fjord plus several others I'd like to get. A few of the ones I'm interested in are pre-orders.

I haven't purchased from them yet due to poor communication and shipping costs. I've heard mixed reviews about this retailer. I bought these two on eBay.  flower

Congrats 4U!
Have you tried TGF Toys? I think they offer free shipping for orders with amount more than $50 (within USA). And they have very good communication and very practical for ordering.

Thanks!  cyclops No, I haven't tried them yet either. It's the shipping costs again, as I am unlikely to spend more than $50 on a website for figures when I can buy most of the ones I want in the stores. If they're not in the stores I'll get them on eBay and combine shipping costs from the same person.  sunny

Thank you Karin! Yes, they are wonderful!  I love you  You must get the grey one  Twisted Evil  Laughing They're about the same size, I can try to get a comparison photo with a Schleich horse for you tonight.  Very Happy

You can probably see a dark brown mark on the grey dun's hindquarters in the photos... he came like that in the package.  Mad I took some Pledge All-Surface cleaner and scrubbed the mark off.  cheers That stuff works wonders.

 affraid Yes, you're seeing that right! I got Princess!  Laughing Carola will be happy to see this I think.  Wink If it wasn't for her Princess would not be on my shelves.  cyclops

Of course Princess is very large, but I think you get the idea.  Very Happy

Where is the dancing smiley when you need it  cheers She is beautiful  drunken (looks like the Made in China version?)

I was very surprised to see you got her, and I'm happy it's kind of my fault  queen
Now the CollectA Clydesdale and his crew will feel completely at home - or maybe they will flee in fear, as they thought they escaped the pink reign ! But even in America, there is no exile cyclops 

She is more of a symbol, than a horse replica, I think  scratch Wink 

And hey they look kind of sweet together, those royal types  Very Happy

Haha, I can't make promises, but he is on my WL for sure! Very Happy I love you

He fits perfectly in my herd. My first though was that he was a bit to big.
But not at all!  cheers cheers sunny And Princess looks very pleased she got a beautiful friend Very Happy
