I think it is not important that snow leopard is a repainted and customed puma. The snow leopard is good, that's a fact.

I found this year very nice cause in new relises there are many interesting replicas for me. For example, wolves and the raven from Safari. Maybe CollectA make a lot of different animals but I think some of that lack quality. And so the leader for me is Papo.
And in this year, I would purchase the wolf cub, the husky and the weimaraner :)

Who stole who, Bryan? scratch
As Christophe correctly explained, it is originally a Maia&Borges figure released in 1998, Schleich bought it and added to their range in 2002 and 2003. In 2012 Maia & Borges relaunched their sea life and in 2014 Papo bought the mold and introduced it this year in their range.
We can agree it is a boring thing but no stealing at all.

Very Happy You don't have to feel sorry Bryan, we know you and we know you didn't want to say bad things. However, if someone from a company reads it, it can sound not good. Now everyone will know that you only don't agree with brands bringing back already used molds what I don't agree too. :)
Though, I am happy seeing that M&B molds keep being interesting to these major companies. Also, it is the surprise of the year for me, seeing a company that competes directly with Schleich, bringing a mold that the German brand used before. Shocked They could use other sea life molds never used before be Schleich or even the water and lake birds instead.
Well, now it is my turn to say something that Papo can dislike.... why don't they ask Maia & Borges to make new zebras? Laughing tongue

Can be honest the Papo read this. Laughing
Stolen is for me a figure that has never existed, that does not mean that the species or the pose was already there, just so special to need an old figure back is uninspired to me. And nobody needs. Well I think it's not at all definitely great.

Welcome Here Princesslion! Very Happy
Yes when you buy figures online they have the same quality how when you buy them on a local toy store

Welcome on forum! flower
Of course when buying online, you don't have the chance of choosing the best sample. Though, it is not easy to find a local shop with many Papo figures to choose. There is always the risk of getting a not very well painted figure but most part of our experiences are good. Very Happy
We use mainly these two German online shops and they are excelent. :)

I really like that Percheron too, too bad he's not very detailed.
Most Papo horses have a lot of personality and interesting poses, as well as decent proportions. But they lack details, and that makes them boring for most people, I think.

Could you please explain what details they are lacking?
I know you are a very good expert when it comes to horses, so I'm sure you are right and I would value your opinion on this.
I have only 2 Papo horses (both draft horses) and the only thing wrong with them is that I think the paintjob is lacking.
Very simple and shiny.
But when you start to look at those horses upclose, you can see they do have subtle sculpted body hair and horse shoes and I love how they turn their ears in different directions sometimes to make it more lifelike.

I agree with Carola however.
Their horse sculpts are always very bulky.
But that's okay for draft horses I guess?

I think Magda is referring to some lack of texture present in some Papo figures. Contrarily to some other brands, Papo uses a much smoother texture to figures that doesn't represent furry animals like it happens often with horses. Collectors of modern figures like usually best a deeply carved texture instead but as you say, when we look well, we can see that they're really detailed but in a much more subtle way. In fact, a delicate texture, often represents with more realism the real fur effect. Though, the smoother surfaces are not compatible with glossy finish and figures end often shiny. I hope Magda sees it and give her real opinion once I am only conjecturing. Laughing
I love Papo horses, they have very different textures, poses, conformations, personalities and doesn't have the uniforme looking we see often in many Schleich horses.
Here is a Papo horse that looks to have a furry like texture.

I was referring to lack of details, such as marked muscles, veins or tendons visible under the skin. As I mentioned earlier, their general proportions and poses are very good and convincing (and they do have personality!). If they had as much details as the recent Collecta horses, or Papo's own big cats, they would be simply amazing models! I really hope that one they Papo horses will be on the same level as their current wildlife models!
I'm referring to the newest moulds, introduced in 2010 and later, as the older ones generally have more flaws in general shape.

As for the texture, personally I prefer when horses in this scale are smooth - unless they are supposed to portrait a horse in thick winter coat Wink In summer (or when clipped) horses have very smooth coat, and hair texture shouldn't be visible in this scale. But that's my personal taste, some prefer textured models Very Happy

EDIT: I have a bold plan of buying a few Papo horses and improving their details and minor flaws they have. I really think these horses have great customizing potential. Keep your fingers crossed! I want to start very soon! Twisted Evil

Thank you Magda.
CollectA made a great choice hiring Deborah McDermott.
Next to her horses, Papo horses look indeed a bit crude.

Hopefully Papo will hire a new, better horse sculpter now their old one obviously went to work for the Schleich's 2014 horse line.
