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


BRAVO Christophe ! You expressed exactly my thought ....and thank you Numman and Collecta for bringing us such wonderful unusual species...a barbary sheep...I ve always dreamt about but even had the courage to think that someone one day would create it...and suddenly here it is ....so beautiful....wild goats and sheeps are among my favourites ones and this figure will soon hava an honor place in my shelves cheers cheers bounce Applause Applause Applause

Numaan, I agree with almost everything although I don't understand from where these comments come. scratch
I have red all comments before yours and I don't see any criticism about unusual poses. Most love it actually.
I am one of the few that makes reference to the pose and I am saying it is a good idea only the wrong pose to the wrong animal but it is merely an opinion.
I appreciate your effort with the brand to give us the best and I also feel the same when a figure where I gave my best to please everyone is criticized. But it always will happen. I remember reacting to a negative comment on Mojo sable project and although I still don't understand, my reaction was not neccessary.
About poses, of course we want unusual poses, in my point of view, mainly to common creatures. Unusual species usually don't need unusual poses, walking or standing can work very well.
CollectA shouldn't make them all standing looking to one of the sides as Schleich does, I don't want 20 cows standing looking right or left to see the new farmer arriving with his new tractor.
Though, it doesn't hurt me that 2014 wild ass is standing unexpressively, that the waterbuck is in a typical Schleich pose. These are unusual species, any regular pose will fit very well. A barbary sheep is a spectacular creature and the best pose to see all its glamour is standing like CollectA markhor. Though, I am truly happy that CollectA is making a new zebra in an unusual pose, probably walking or running. I don't like that Mojo made a new zebra standing in allert pose, what saves clearly the figure is that it is superiorly sculpted. Zebras are a lot and it is good to diversify their poses. I hope you understand now. There are a lot of excitment with CollectA, you know it . And a forum is more a place of discussion where everyone is allowed to give opinions as long as it is not ofensive. Keep your work we're enjoying it. Very Happy

Some close up photos of the prototype for you along with comparison photos with the Schleich Ibex and CollectA Markhor.  I know I am not the best photographer in the world unlike some of you  Very Happy  Very Happy

Many thanks for the pics, Numaan!
The figurine is excellent, and I'm glad it is not big.

Thanks for pictures, Numaan! Very Happy
The pose really detracts a little the sumptuousness of this animal but much better like that than the silly pose of that Ibex! Laughing
Haha, I love it upside down! drunken Very Happy
