i like the dinosaurs but they would be much greater when they use the same colours just like PAPO so they would like be more realistic

I don't think the colors are necessarily bad, we don't know what they looked like back then, they may have been neon blue and electric yellow for all we know. I don't think the color scheme is bad, they probably just did bright colors to appeal to kids senses. I would probably have picked the bright green T rex over a natural olive green one, but of course now (meaning anywhere after age 7 Wink ) I would have picked the natural colored one. I like the Papo dinos best because they remind me of Jurassic Park and I like that movie. Laughing

Finally, the therizinosaurus is not bad and I like it. The other figures are bad for me. 
I think PAPO will made a therizinosaurus this year because the last year, schleich published a carnotaur and papo, a carnotaur. The therizinosaurus is not bad but I prefer to see the real figure.

is very similar to the first one with moveable jaw, which is the same as this new one. Unless I am wrong, which I probably am, because I don't know much about dinosaurs! lol!geek
From what I tell, the 2012 model has a shorter tail and smaller feet then this new one.

Schleich dinosaurs used to be dull and brown almost like Papos. Though in reality we never know what colors dinosaur really are unless there feathered, in which case we can use new technology to see the pigments and compare them to modern birds. BTW Schleich makes really terrible Dinosaurs in terms of accuracy, there raptors should be completely covered in feathers, as should the Thirzinosaurus. Papo has the same problem with there dinosaurs, but they don't claim scientific authenticity like Schleich does which gives them an excuse.


Out of all the Dinosaurs Schleich is making next year. The one that's most accurate is the Pentaceratops. The Raptor needs feathers all over its body instead of on its arms, and the Wrists are broken (They should look like the dinosaur could Clap its hands instead of slapping)

The T_REx has the same issues as there previous version, only different (see above)

While the Thirzino is too skinny, and ther not enough Feathers(as said above), also The Wrists are broken on it as well.

Maybe the T-Rex is a female and she waits for a male mating with her, so kiddies can play"Let's make a Dinosaur"?

Never seen so horrible ugly looking dinosaur models-Schleich has done another"great"Job.

I LOVE them with plenty of colours, like exotic birds Very Happy 
Or zebras. Or giraffes. Or lots of reptiles nowadays.....why would they be grey or dark green ? scratch 

As far as I remember, a few colours have actually been determined, - and they weren't booring green or grey drunken

I agree with you Susanne, I only meant to use the word "natural" as a term for more quiet/earthy colors, I didn't mean for it to refer to it being more probable that they were darker colors. I rather like bright colors myself, it makes them more fun in my opinion.Very Happy 

@Takama, I also know that many dinos are supposed to have feathers now. However, I don't know much about dinosaur anatomy or accuracy so I was only referring to their colors not their actual make up, and I would never claim to know that. I only meant in terms of color scheme that I don't really mind the bright colors, it makes them a little more fun to me. Smile

Sorry I like to speak up about them from time to time.    On a side note, the Thirzinosaur might have a posable Jaw, and by the looks of the photo, it may evean have moveable arms too.

Oh please don't be sorry. I hope I didn't come off as angry, I was only explaining what I meant in the earlier post when I realized I spoke a little ambiguously. I actually like to hear opinions about the dino models because then I learn more about them than I did before.
I didn't notice the possible moveable joints, that would be pretty cool for a kid, especially on a dino that has some serious claws. Laughing Thanks for correcting me anyway, it keeps me straight. Laughing Wink

There's also this one (same source):

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It seems to be Fjord stallion, Shetland foal and Trakehner foal. They're probably unpainted models "stolen" from the Chinese Schleich factory by some worker :)
I have to say I like Trakehner foal the best of these three - it looks a lot better than on promo photos! I don't like Shetland and Fjord so much Neutral

Yes , - and what a beautyful model cheers 

The little foal is lovely also. Those two can make me forgive Schleich for a lot of over-cute stuff Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy 

Thankyou very much, dear Alien Applause

PS, about why they are unpainted : Some emplyee on the factury has stolen them from the waste-bin Wink

I like them all well enough, the foal looks a little different than the company pic, but that's probably because of the angle.

I think that the buffalo has grooved horns because sometimes during the fighting season when they fight they can get scars and chips on the horns. However, since it is a growing tissue on real animals, they probably shouldn't have grooved the horns.

I thought flying foxes were supposed to have a rusty-colored ring of fur around their neck? Or is this just another Schleich mistake? If I look at photos of flying foxes they all have that orange-ish color fur. scratch

There are many different sorts of flying foxes. study 
The one you're talking about with the rusty-colored ring of fur is Mariana flying fox.
Perhaps Schleich is making the Black flying fox.(?)

Oh, okay, thank you! I didn't realize there were different types. study cheers 

You're probably right then, if I look at photos. It looks like it's supposed to be a Black Flying Fox. Very Happy Very Happy

I agree it is a nice figure, but IMO it looks too similar to these ones.

Haha of course I'm not offended. : D 
And I wasn't particularly defending the new whitetails (I haven't even looked at the picture properly).
It's good that the old models get replaced, but once again the poses could be more interesting. Has any brand made for example a grazing deer?
But as you see, like every autumn, this forum gets full of negative comments and Schleich hate, and I just wanted to enlighten the mood with a picture of a happy deer.
And because I don't really understand why to mock a figure for looking happy, animals can feel happiness too.


EDIT: And you're definitely right about the look-a-likeness of the Safari deer :) I'm not sure about the Mojo one though.

Krista, Bullyland made a really fine grazing Fallow Deer!
I think that the new Schleich White-tailed doe doesn't look happy, she looks really flirtatious! Wink  She'd fit well in one of Carola's comics! Razz

I know how much you love figures with a happy looking and it is a quite interesting fact. You and Kristie always shared a special and different way of collecting and I really enjoy it.

There are some vintage deers grazing but the only I know from a major brand is the Bullyland fallow deer

curiously, it looks that in contrast with Schleich, it is the poor face of major brands when it is really a company with a fantastic story, some really great species, figures and good poses. Though, it gets often forgoten even some of Bully animals have the biggest smile of this world. flower

Sorry for repeating Bojan, it was already written! geekVery Happy

Roger and Bojan, thanks for reminding me about the Bullyland grazing fallow deer! Poor Bullyland, always gets neglected :'D

Yes, that's true :) But they don't always have to be happy, as long as they have 'soul' or personality. Some figures may be perfect anatomically but if they look completely emotionless, they don't interest me that much. But this doesn't mean that I only love the ugly figures for their unique charm :D
I also try to collect the figures of my favourite animals.

But as we all have different styles to collect and different tastes, I find it unpleasant to stomp on Schleich every year, because it happens to be the most mainstream and the easiest brand to purchase. Of course they have their faults (like every brand I know), and constructive and reasonable critique is more than welcome, because it starts discussion. But straightforward flaming makes the athmosphere very negative and might make the people who like Schleich ashamed of their enthusiasm of the new figures. Eventhough releasing new figures should be a happy thing.

Hope I made myself clear and didn't sound a complete bitch... :/

Krista, I am only quoting this part because all the previous I agree and already commented.
Honestly, I find the comments of this year, not very negative to the brand, mainly when compared with previous years. I agree that excessive criticism is not constructive and it explains why I haven't commented new Schleich dinosaurs.
Though, now it is my turn to tell you that it is not my style, being more tolerant with a main stream brand that is indifferent to our comments because it is confortable on market and more exigent and critics towards brands that still have a fragile position on market but that make everything to please us, releasing high quality figures instead of charming and half-fantasied figures under the educational label. If you read carefully this topic, you'll see that the most negative comments towards new Schleich figures are from the old and faithful collectors of the brand and not from those that never appreciated Schleich style. flower Very Happy

You're right Roger, the comments haven't been half as bad as for example last year. Here on this topic people have been discussing in quite civilised manner.
Maybe I'm still living in the past :D
But there has been rather nasty comments in the other brands' topics regarding Schleich. Of course people are allowed to compare brands and like one brand better than another, but especially in the internet, phrasing matters so much more than in real life discussion.
And I hope you know that my criticism of manners is not targeted towards you, because I like the way you write and appreciate your debating skills. :)



By the way, I think that one of the problems that Schleich has is their catalogue pictures. They are too focused and sharpened on the texture of the figure which makes them look odd. Usually in real life the figures look better... They should rethink the way they photograph their figures ...

I agree with all krista and roger said. My main issue with negative comments is that not every animal is totally common looking and "realistic" in the sense that they all should look a specific way. I've said it before that all animals are different like people, and may have different proportions from each other. Anyways, the only time I find a figure bad is when the anatomy is totally wrong or the figure totally weird looking. This just my opinion though.

I have a different perception to what is happening on other brands threads. Most people is not really being nasty with the brand to ridicule their figures, actually, I think many people wished those great figures and unusual species of other brands were in fact Schleich releases. Idea Why? take the example of Mojo and Schleich lionesses, we are happy anytime there's a new figure, specially when it looks excelent as it is the case of the Mojo. The Schleich is surely not bad but clearly it doesn't look as promising. But when will we see the Schleich one? In January, in a local shop with all the excitment of seeing new figures and having the chance of choosing one of the copies. ... and the Mojo? When we'll see it? Probably very late on the year with the big disadvantage of being needed to be ordered online with all extra shipping costs and without the chance of choosing the best of the shop. Thinking well, it would be great that all good 2014 releases were Schleich but it was much better if we had the chance of finding all brands locally or if Schleich was less conservative and stopped this exagerated children targeted lines. study
With what Schleich told me directly and to other collectors on STS, I don't believe Schleich will change their commercial strategy, they even are offering the brand to Matel what explains the Barbie style of some figures. flower I love you
I really wish instead that market turn more balanced and that soon we can find these new brands everywhere because I think they are putting quality in high levels and they deserve it. Very Happy

About pictures you're right, the main difference between some old and newer Schleich versions is their texture, when you read people saying they are detailed, it is exactly because of the rich texture, a paradigmatic sign of what is modern and not. But proportions, muscular expression, are also important to make a great figure. However, Schleich insists in focusing their catalogue pictures to show how textured their figures are. Very Happy

I'm personally looking forward with great interest to the black flying fox and the chipmunk. As well as tge new hedgehog. Schleich'sahedgehog. Yes, it's attatched to a "base", as is the chipmunk, but I like Schleich hedgehogs. I have the old retired one which is on the base, and Beatrice and Yvette have sent me the little mini "hogs," but I still need the current ones before they remove them from the market. Perhaps my mum will surprise me with them on my birthday. Laughing Seriously though, I'll agree that lately Schleich's sculpts have run the wide gamut between naturalustic and "happy critters," but I'll still buy them. Personally, I like the wild Safari deer the most, but that doesn't mean I dislike Schleich.

I understand your point of view, but I have to say that in order to succeed in this market, the more versatile the brand is, the more they can succeed.
I'm not sure where all the money Schleich gets comes from (Fantasy figures? Horses? Cute and common animals?), but I'm sure that the brand would go down very quickly if only animal collectors would buy that brand. I know there are lots of us, but after all, not so many on the larger scale.
So I'm happy if the brand can afford to make even one or two lesser known animals every year, even though they will never be the bestseller figures and producing them might actually cost them more money than profit.

And the same goes for Mojo and the lesser known brands, they have to make also common animals (for example this year's lioness, zebra etc) to stay alive in the business. They have to make figures that would sell also as toys.

I don't know if Schleich selling the business or part of it to Mattel is bad, actually. I think that they would sell only their fantasy line to Mattel. That could turn out good. But you never know.

And as for all the stores stocking up only Schleich. It's mostly up to the storeowners and importers. The biggest toy store chain here (and also the local Toys R Us, i think) tried to have Schleich and CollectA simultaneously (or even replacing Schleich with CollectA, I don't know??), but it probably wasn't profitable, since they got rid of the CollectA stock pretty soon....

.... I don't know if it's pointless to say this in this point os the conversation, but Schleich is not my favourite brand (I don't really prefer any brand, except I have a really soft spot for Re-ment for some reason), I just try to understand the strategy and vision of every company.

One of my dreams is to have a store (not a webstore, but a "real" local one) that sells only animal figures. Of all the major brands. It would be targeted to collectors and children. But instead of plush toys, it would sell only plastic animals. But, as sad as it is, the company would crash and burn very quickly. So it's only a dream. :)

Sorry to cause all of the arguments of the new whitetails Shocked , I meant to say that (in my opinion) Schleich seems to be making figures that appeal to young children which is brilliant because they will sell more items. The only thing about that is that the realism of the figures starts to decrease, thus making them seem almost comical. In recent years Schleich has added ribbons and bows to their horses hair which has made sales shoot through the roof. So, this has turned out to be great for the company. What I really meant (and I should have said this in the beginning) is that, me being someone who likes to collect realistic and life like figures, I am somewhat disappointed. Rolling Eyes

I personally like Schleich's modern animal figures as I find the to be very detailed even if there a little cutesy or cartoonish.

What I don't like, is the fact that they retire everything after a year or too.

You didn't start an argument, you started a discussion. Wink I see where schleich is going with their tactic of cuter figures, I only wish that they would rather select some figures that would fit their bill of cute animals to boost sales (like the hedgies), and instead keep a somewhat more regular line of figures (again as Roger said selecting some recognizable but different species like the penguin is a great idea since it appeals to mostly both parties). Like I said, yes they have to make money, and the more the better, however I just wish they realized that not everyone likes that style, and would rather have some more lifelike figures as well.

You weren't causing argument, only discussion, which is a good thing. And actually, my reply to you was meant to taken in a humorous way, the reply I sent to you was kind of a joke, but it was probably misinterpret to be more serious than it actually was.

I don't mean this in a bad way, but I'm interested, do you have any statistic or proof about Schleich sales. Are the ribboned horses really their bestsellers, because I honestly don't know. It would be awesome if Schleich published every year some sort of a statistic of which figures have been the most sold in which countries. :D

I've never quite grasped that way of thinking. Retiring figures after only a few years is going to raise their value as a collectable item.
Ok, I don't collect figures to become rich later (that's not realistic, figures aren't a good investment), but doesn't everyone like to own rare figures?
And since information of the soon to be retired figures is out very early, you still have lots of time to purchase the figures you still want.

And my other reason why I don't see the retirement as a bad thing:
I like to have many different versions of the same animal. For example the Schleich fox... It's interesting to compare them and see how the brand has evolved.
