Well, they were only made for 1 or two years, but seem to have been a flop in the market , - why ?
I have given it some thought, and think that :
- The large ones were much too expensive. For instance the elephant was almost 100 Euros here in Denmark.
- Most of the heroes are pretty boring to look at IMHO
- The market is swarmed with movie heroes from Spiderman to Lord of the Rings and a lot that I don't know of , and they all have a good story to enhance the fantasy.
- The Schleich models are not historicall correct
- They do not appeal to Grandma as a gift for little Johnny ( Half naked, aggressive)
- They come from differnet aeras. I simply can't imagine playing with them.
Other reasons ??
