PostSubject: Discontinued models in shops   Thu 16 Dec - 8:31

Yesterday we went to a little shop to buy a giraffe for our boy and we saw a few animals I haven't seen on Schleich web page. When I got home, I found out those models aren't made any more - 2 orangutan females 14306, 14307 orangutan baby, couple of 14148 zebras, 14354 Lion and 4-5 piglets 14335 and 14336 (maybe even more "oldies" but I didn't have much time to look closely)...

My question is, how often you have a chance to find relatively old models on regular market, in shops?

It depends on the stock... I recently saw the Shire gelding in a shop, and it was discontinued long time ago!

No Susanne, we haven't bought them. I'm not a collector, just buying nice ones for my kids. Anyway, my goal is to make them a nice African corner in our apartment, with a few trees and animals(not to mention that I like more newer lion and zebras than the old ones)...

Although, those piglets are gorgeous sunny

I ate this lion, but someday I'll try to find it because I love lions!!!
The oldest I find was the boer family, retired in 2008, and I've bought it in August 2010!
Anyway I only have the parents, baby is absolutly impossible to find!Sad
It was in a big Schleich shop in a small village in the South of Portugal, In big towns never found almost nothing retired, only some 2009 retired figures, but almost penguins!

Roger, you must not eat the lions, no matter the films Philip shows you affraid

But you are right, I hav cheked a lot of Danish internet-shops. Many have the adult Boers, but no baby silent

Well, it should not be impossible to find Very Happy sunny

In Kiev shops I see remnants of the retired models from time to time. Recently I saw a real herd of ibexes (up to 8 pieces) and wild boars/sows with piglets.

No, it's not Very Happy
I could buy retired ones easy but I will have to order animals for 2011 online cause I don't think they could come in our regular shops until august/september...

Ah, well, in this case, you are right, but you just have one shop near you?

Well, this have 2 sides, the good, and the bad.. The good, you can buy retired animals "when you want", the bad, you need wait a lot for buy the 2011 animals.. Sad

WOW, what a great shop for retireds. As Roger said in another thread the boer goats are difficult to find especially the baby. If you could afford them you may be able to make some money or do trades with others on the forum for ones you want. The Blanket Appaloosa is not available anymore either...wow! Shocked

There is an online store in the USA that sells retired figures for alot more than off the shelf...you could go into business. Wink

Thanks for sharing the photos.

The hunt continues Very Happy

Today we were in a visit to my parents (who live 50km from our home) and, of course, 2 local shops which had Schleich animals. Looks like gees and cows are not very popular here, I can find retired models almost everywhere

Was detected a new focus of the STS virus in Serbia, we advise Sebian population to take care, it’s a very contagious bug and there’s no medication available yet!
15 February commemorations are at risk to prevent more contamination!
