PostSubject: Label or without label   Label or without label EmptySat Mar 15, 2014 5:44 pm

Sorry if this topic is already opened.

Everytime I bought a new horse I have the same doubt: should I put away the label or should I leave it? From few years ago to this 2014 I always put it away because I though horses look like more real. I have just one horse with its label: Satchmo special edition.

But I don't know why nowadays I prefer to leave it... I think now horses conserve their ''essence'' as a collection model and also maybe in few years this brand will change it label and I would have some diferent models with diferent labels

So.... what do you prefer? label or without label?

I keep the tags off as it leaves nasty residue and can discolor your model. Very Happy

Same here, I would remove it because the tag can be distracting and also depending on how its attached it can damage the model.

I remove the labels. The small labels with only the name, I trow them away.
Tags with more info about the animal, I keep.

I don't think the small labels contribute to the worth of the model.
Somebody can easily take one small label and but it on a older model and say: Look, original WITH label >.<

I agree and with the newer Schleich sea animals the residue is even harder to get off. That's probably because of the newer waxy-plastic they're made from.

That's for sure. I never did get all the residue off my new sea life models. The new orca was the worst.  Sad

I always remove the labels, but I always keep them. There are many wandering Schleich-S labels through my house Laughing

I hope, it is ok, if I post in such an old thread>_<°
Personally I would remove the tags, too. But when you decide to resell a model, especially it is an older or `more valuable` ones, some collectors would pay more, if it still has its Label.
Or am I wrong???

No need to apologize Very Happy Bringing up old topics allows us to revisit Wink

Honestly, I haven't seen much of a price difference in resale value of models with tags versus those without. Besides, resale values have plummeted in these last few years, so I really don't think today's models are going to be worth much down the road anyway. Having the tag will make little to no difference in time IMHO.
