PostSubject: SpiralStrix Additions - Birds & Ungulates (Updated Jan 2nd, 2015)   Fri Jan 10, 2014 10:30 pm

Last weekend we were out of town visiting my boyfriend's family. I was able to venture out and see what brands were available there. I was worried they would only have Schleich, like most stores around here. I went to the local toy store and was happy to see Safari Ltd. and Wild Republic. I saw a lot of nice figures, but decided to stick to my wish list for now. I took home this little fellow.

It is impressive that even in North America Schleich is by far the easiest brand to find. Even more knowing that Safari and Wild Republic are North American brands. :)
Congratualtions for your American white pelican, it is a great figure, this mould was previously used by Safari and repainted as a brown pelican. Actually a very nice figure but hard to find these days.
No doubts your subject is... birds. Very Happy

It's funny, but Safari is actually the easiest to find where I live. Schleich is closest to me, but Safari is more populous.




Wonderful bird, congratulations! cheers Very Happy

Thanks everyone! I am rather fond of this figure. I would be thrilled to have the brown pelican too. One can dream... drunken

PostSubject: SpiralStrix Schleich Additions   Sun Jan 12, 2014 4:49 am

Today I will tell you about my very first Schleich purchases!

I had considered adding the snowy owl to my wish list, but it wasn't a priority. Nevertheless, there they were as I was browsing the Schleich figures at a Walmart out of town. I picked up one of the owls and immediately noticed her striking eyes. To me this was a detail I guess photos hadn't quite captured. I was surprised seeing her in person. She instantly became a must-have.

The peregrine falcon also looked more appealing to me in person (though the "Made in Germany" variation still seems superior). I rescued this one from the desolate, haphazard shelves at my local Walmart.

It's not my first choice for such items, but Walmart is actually the only place selling animal figures in my town cyclops  (to my knowledge). We don't have many stores in general, so it's much more exciting when we go other places. We will next week, so I am looking forward to that. Still, I'll probably have to order the majority of things online.

Idea I've changed my mind and decided to post my additions in one place from now on. I hope you don't mind.

This is my first Kitan Club figure, and what a treasure!

Kitan Club Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis)

I received another Kaiyodo bird! It's sort of a funny figure, but I think it showcases the charismatic persona of these owls. The details are better when seen in person, since these birds are fairly tiny, but this photo will suffice.

Kayla, I like best when someone shows all additions in a single topic. Unless it is a walk around, a first presentation or a discussion thread. Very Happy
If you want, I merge all your addition topics in this one. Very Happy
These are two wonderful figures for a birds collector, thanks for showing so nicely. Very Happy

Of course I will, Andreas. Wink I have more arrivals already, but I still need to take some pictures.  Applause 
I can definitely try to do a walk-around of the kingfisher, Christophe.  Smile  study I'll try my best anyway...I am no photographer.
Oh, that makes sense, Rogério. I wasn't sure where was most appropriate to post. I get it now. sunny Yes, it would be great if you could merge them here! I think I only had 3 other threads. The Safari, Schleich, and Kaiyodo additions.

Everything is already merged in this topic. It looks an aviary! Laughing
You can keep using this one to show all your figures. Of course the walk around it is better to open on its correct section as Christophe said. Very Happy

Hello, everyone!
I have more newcomers to update you on. I am a little behind posting them all, but I'll try to catch up in the next few days. First, I have something rather different to show you. It is the start of my antelope collection! I mentioned before that I would be collecting antelopes in addition to birds. Birds are my main focus, but I had been hypnotized by the many gorgeous antelope figures. Shocked When I saw the 2014 Mountain Nyala prototype pictures, it was the last straw, and I decided to collect them. I like the quality and variety of antelope figures available from different brands. They are popular in the forums too, which makes it more fun.  cheers 

I may take better pictures later, but here's a peak:

It was exciting holding each of these for the first time. They are marvelous works of art! The Schleich figures are how I imagined them to be, and I am content with them. I was pleasantly surprised by the feel of the Mojo figures. Really nice quality! I am happy to have the pronghorn and sable as my first Mojos. The Safari oryx is much better in person. I already liked it from the photos I'd seen, but I was blown away in reality. The paint and textures were more detailed than expected. The Lesser Kudu is an example of what I anticipated Safari antelopes to be like. However, I do like this kudu a lot. I was especially excited to receive my first CollectA figures. The paintwork is superb. The waterbuck has very nice coloring, and how can you not love that little blackbuck? The waterbuck does have a bent horn, but that seems to be common with this figure. Hmm, I don't have a Papo antelope yet…maybe next time. Oh, I did get the barn owl though!

*I know a pronghorn is not quite an antelope, but it's a nice representative from my homeland. I'm not too strict. geek I even saw a few pronghorn herds this weekend. Smile*

Kayla, a collection organized like that looks always wonderful! I don't want to say that larger and messy collections are not great but everything looks wonderfully logical like that. Very Happy
To support your choices, the only antelope I don't have from these is the only that you correctly say it is not an antelope. I do have the Safari pronghorn instead but I'll get the Mojo version either.
Papo doesn't have many antelopes, only an oryx and a greater kudu. They are larger than those from otehr brands and maybe that is not the strongest point of the brand, though, kudu is very charming! Very Happy

Bryan, I think any of these would be fantastic for your collection! If you have/get any, I'd love to see. cheers 

Thanks again, Rogério! Yes, it is easier to organize collections while they're small. It will get cluttered pretty quickly, though...if I keep going at this rate. Laughing Then, I'll need a plan! Maybe something to use up some of that vertical space.
I keep forgetting that Safari also has a pronghorn. I love the Mojo one, but the Safari has more accurate facial markings.
Ah, the size difference of Papo antelopes could deter me from getting them. However, I do really want a gemsbok in my collection, so I might give in. I like the look of the kudu a lot, but I don't know how I feel about it towering over my other kudus.
