PostSubject: CollectA 2014: WILDLIFE - Barbary Sheep (88683)   Fri Nov 29, 2013 2:04 pm

I have pleasure in sharing the 2014 Barbary sheep - a first amongst the current brands.  This sculpt was inspired by a photo of a Barbary in an aggressive position that was about to fight with another male - it's head is lowered ready for combat.  Personally I love the assertive character of the sculpt although I wish I could share an image from the other side which is a little better.  Enjoy Very Happy

Wonderful news this Barbary ram!!! I think it will be necessary to buy two so they will look natural, like before a fight. Amazing figure cheers

You are right, otherwise it's pose is pointless and that's a big minus in my opinion...

For me, I think, it's not minus. Fighting scenes will make any collection look more interesting. I remember from my childhood collection even these cheap chinese animals had some fighting animals, especially rams and billy goats. I loved that and now I think it's very nice to see it. But the minus is, two will be more expensive to buy, that's sure.

I don't think there are more than 15-20% of us collectors who make scenes and those will indeed enjoy it. The rest of us will have a replica who fights with the air. I guess I will just have to lean him on a tree or rock so he can scratch his head Very Happy

Of course I am very happy withh species choice although my feelings about that picture are not the best. scratch The fighting pose is a good idea to the wrong animal. This creature is too beautiful to be presented in a fighting pose, it looks much more majestic with head up like you did with the markhor.
Maybe the fighting pose worked much better with the European mouflon due to its simplistic shape. I hope, as you say, that it looks better from the other angle.
It will obviously be in my wish list and I am impressed with the amount of unusual species CollectA is releasing again, fantastic year again!!! cheers

Great species choice, although a mirror might help,...or i have to buy two and one will be a rework-candiadte to get the neck of one bending the head the other way,...otherwise it's less combat than performance art or something like that,...
But if one buys mouflon and barbary sheep,...?;-p

Hi all

I described the pose incorrectly - this is meant to be a standing Barbary sheep with its face pulled in closer to its body whilst it is slightly lowered. It does look like it is in a combat pose but it can also mean a number of other things. Does everyone want models exactly like Schleich with all animals just standing still with head held high?  

On one side we have those who complain that Schleich just makes standing lifeless poses and then another who disagree with any model sculpted in a way that deviates from the Schleich norm so what would some of you like in future?  Unfortunately most of the wildlife range of 2013 consist of models doing something and very few static poses but if collectors would like CollectA to revert to the Schleich 'static head held high' positions then I can see what can be done about this.  Just let me know

I have come to realise that you can never please everyone all of the time and at the same time. Very Happy Very Happy

Laughing Laughing Laughing  I agree with you Numaan Very Happy  we, collectors are terrible people Wink And it is indeed impossible to please everyone. CollectA is making great things and I appreciate a lot your contribution to my collector's life cheers I remember the 2012 comments about the neoStarlux Oryx and it is indeed a great model Very Happy . I can't wait to see all these newcomers on my shelves.

Please, continue your good job, continue to support CollectA and continue to like us despite what we are Wink 

By the way... I like very much this model Applause

He's beautiful and a must have! I only wish they'd make a female too! No.3 on my CollectA wishlist after Tasmanian devil and Leatherback seaturtle! But still no one beats the Mojö SunBear!!!

I love this! Wonderful to have a Barbary soon to be available.

The pose doesn't bother me at all. I don't set up scenes with my animals (and of course in saying this, I don't mean to imply that my personal way of proceeding is the "correct" way -- not at all!). But I also don't need all the figures I own to be in static positions. This looks great.
