PostSubject: Takama's Schleich Modern Wild Life   Thu Nov 21, 2013 2:09 am

I decided now to Focus on Collecting Schleich Animals instead of Mojo.  There wide spread around were I live. and every Farm shop has them for sale.

Right now the collection is small. But as with all threads I made, I will update this with new figures that I receive or Buy locally at one of the shops


Walkarounds will of course be up later. I may or may not put up facts about them.(Im not the best expert on modern creatures)

That is an easy decision, collecting Schleich is always much easier, even for me, unfortunately the brand is a little boring. Though, your pictures are really great and sometimes what is really boring is to want some more additions and don't know where to find them. Isn't there Safari where you live? :)

Yes There is Safari, but there very limited to only two stores, and there selection is not the best.

personally, I find Schleich to be very detailed, though I made a restriction to only buy animals that were released from 2008-today, because that's were I see that the detail is most impressive to me.

I made a list of retired items that I wish to get before there even harder to get. the one I want the most is the Roebuck.

Yes, Schleich is very detailed just as are other brands. Very Happy
If you mean this Schleich roebuck, just pm me your address, the Bullyland roebuck, which I like best, is enough for me although this is probably the best Schleich deer of ever. Very Happy

After walking for an Hour and a half, browsing for another hour, and another hour and a half to walk home, I bought myself a Hippo.   I spent an hour deciding between five figures, but the other four had blemishes on them. But this Hippo was crisp.

I like the Shine they gave to its mouth.

Ok, here it goes. My first basic facts for a modern animal.

Hippos are amphibious mammals that live around water in Africa. They may seem cute but they are one of Africa's most dangerous animals, as they will attack humans without provocation. This is mainly due to territorial behavior in the males, and cub defense from the females. To mark its territory, a Male hippo would spin its tail while defecating to spread its scent over a wide area.











White Stork

White storks are long legged white birds that are often said to be a delivery service for human baby's whenever a young child asks about were babies come from. This is due to the fact that White Storks are very renowned parents, and will sometimes build there nests on top of houses, and will return to the nest year after year, making the owners see them as a sign of good luck.

It wasn't that bad.

I decided to focus on modern animals for the rest of the year, dinosaurs will be given a break, though that does not mean I wont stop eying for new releases, (like CollectAs outstanding deluxe Thirzinosaurus)

Congrats on the hippo! cheers It's a shame that it's so hard to find a figure without blemishes on it. Sad

Indian Peacock

Indian Peacocks are the most commonly produced type of peafowl. In order to attract a mate it will raise its convert feathers (which grow from the back) and spread them open like a fan to hopefully impress the female.

Ah, the peacock. Either you love it or you hate it. Laughing

Congrats! Yours appears to be much better painted than mine. How do you feel about the clear plastic?

Well the clear plastic does give the affect that you can see past the feathers like on a real one. Though some spots need more paint then others.

for some reason, I like figures with transparent features. I might get the Swimming drake soon because of this.

Eurasian Badger.

The Eurasian Badger is one of the most social of all badgers, as they will form groups up to 23 individuals, and make dens large enough to support multiple family's. Sometimes a Badger would allow  red foxes  to share its den, but this is a example of Commensalism, because the Fox would bring in scraps of meat while the badger keeps the den clean. If the Badger is provoked it can be a vicious animal, and It has been reported that  the badger would sometimes drag the vixen out of it and eat her young. Foxes are not the only animals that share its den with a Badger, it is also shared by Rabbits, that would hide in small hard to reach chambers to avoid predation

I really don't enjoy too much the peacock, I recomend the previous version from Schleich that is not easy at all to find. Though, considering you enjoy translucent parts, it is the correct for you. On the other hand, the badger is just my favorite! Very Happy Congrats and great pics. Very Happy

I also got the Artic Fox.    Lovely figure with its snowy look and shine

All I know about Artic foxes (im to tired to read about them on Wikipedia right now) is that they turn white during winter, and brown or grey during summer.
