A long time ago, I ordered the AAA panda from Emma as well.
I had sent her an e-mail first to ask if she was okay with sending it to the Netherlands though.

Here it is next to the Safari ltd. Red Panda:

I too think the CollectA red panda is very strange, I've seen it in toy shop once. It was, I think, even more bizarre than on catalog photo  scratch 
But other brands have quite nice red pandas, I think they are still possible to find Very Happy
AAA looks very nice indeed Very Happy

I forgot about that, but she only ships to the UK  Neutral 

I think that e-mailing Emma directly she also sends to other European countries, though I doubt that she sends to Israel or USA. scratch

She might if you ask nicely  Smile

Thank you all for helping me, as always :)
I do want to get me a Red panda - I am not looking for a Giant Panda therefore I can't get Safari ltd. It looks very big compared to the Rhino. Actually I got me a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the latest from Schliech - IT IS A MUST HAVE for everyone - I think this is one of the beautiful [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I ever seen.

I would be happy to get me a NORMAL sized Red Panda - Is there a way I can get it? The AAA Red Panda is still possible to get? Overseas (Israel)
I think that Mojo should create a Red Panda (with the help of Anna of course) :)

Thank you.

PostSubject: American Bison - Help me choose   Sun May 25, 2014 10:55 pm

Hi All,

I am more than thankful for all your kind help and guidance of which help me with my collection and hobby :) - Thank you!

I am looking for a good American Bison figure and it looks like there are so many to chose from :) including custom made figures.
I have come up with the following two and I would be happy if you could tell me which should I chose?
Papo 50119 - American Bison
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
or
Schleich 14714 - American Bison --> Looks the ONE! is that so? The picture looks great!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I know that there are many more that are beautiful as much as these. If I am wrong with my choice I would be happy to know.
Maybe
Safari Ltd NAW 290829 - Bison
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Is the answer :)

Thank for helping me as always.
I really appreciate you help.
I know that there a many of you that probably have all of them and have the "In-Hand" perspective of each one (including those that I didn't put here) - Like a contest between Bisons.

To me they all looks to be scaled with each other and other Bovine figures as well.

Thank You!

Thanks Simon.

I know that it is hard to chose from and I know that I'll be getting more than one to be pleased with the Bison. That is why I have asked for help :) - I am thinking to get (now) Only the new released figures that I can afford.
And I know that there are plenty more to choose from.

The above 3 Bisons mentioned are in the list in the shop that I am planning to buy from and I would be happy if you could assist me to get the right one.

Thank You!

It is almost impossible to give advice  scratch

Personally I love the Papo one, - he is almost monumental, - byt the new Schleich has a better head, I think. Still a bit too cute , perhaps Wink

The Schleich is the smallest, the Papo the most impressive and the Safari Ltd the most realistic. So... Three good choices  Wink

I don't have the brand new Schleich, but in comparison with the old Schleich Bison figures the papo one is quite large. I have almost all the bison from the brands (other than collectA and new Schleich and white Safari) and it is hard to choose. However, in your case with the three you can't decide from any one of them is a good choice.
The papo one has a very "grand" pose, making it look like a statue in a national park I've seen before, however it is a fantastic model. I can't speak for the new Schleich, but the pictures make it appear to have great texture and detail. The safari figure is also a great mold, however since it is a safari sometimes the paint may not be what you expected. Personally, I would choose the safari out of the three for realism, good size, and price etc.

It is up to you to decide. I am not a huge fan of the schleich 2014 bison, but that is just my opinion.

I have only collectA one but I would think about Papo if I choose from these 3 Very Happy Schleich looks also nice, I only don't really like the Safari LTD one. Smile

I have the figure of Lineol old brand and although it seems a great figure of bison with a good scale. Schleich Bison seems very small and I think Safari has a rare position.

The photos are not very good. sorry. Embarassed

I haven't seen any other sellers on eBay other than jumpinglemurs (Emma). She is willing to ship to other countries but you have to contact her first: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (read the Delivery section). H and H Winners' Circle is the only other place that I know of that sells AAA but they don't have the red panda.

Thanks Orca.

When I get to the eBay it says "Shipping: Does not ship to Israel" - That means I can't get it.
I also have a US Dollar account of which I would like to use and not Euro.

pity - I thought I could get me the mom and kitten :)

You're welcome!  Smile  It says this about shipping international: OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS - Please contact me directly if you require overseas shipping - [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I'm sure she'd be willing to ship it to you? If you pay in USD it's $14.47 for the whole set or $8.88 for the kitten and $10.39 for the mom.

That is the Safari Ltd 282629 Baboon Female with Baby from 2006 and discontinued since 2011.
If you have it in your hands, it is marked with the brand. Very Happy

THANK YOU! Roger and SUSANNE.
You have helped me figure out the Baboon brand and that it has been discontinued.

It is rather big for my collection and I am thinking on trading it off with a small Baboon with the same quality - Are there smaller baboons?

I think Schleich baboon female is smaller, I don't know if it is enough smaller to your taste but I think so. This site (Toy ANimal Wiki) is being built by some members of our forum, it could really help size information but it is hard to put all information. Probably, Safari section will soon or later have sizes once it is the brand that shows a wider variation of sizes. :)

1:15,4 scale means that 1 cm of the figure represents 15,4 cm in a real animal. That is an official scale from the brand and not a conjectural. As you don't collect figures in exact scale but in relative scale, it means that it is a huge rhino for you, larger than Schleich elephants although it works perfectly with some Schleich big cats.
I don't have these baboons and I haven't found a single comparison picture on forum. Remember that the Schleich baboon is a long retired figure, not easy at all to find. monkey

Thanks Roger for helping me understand.
I use to this format 15.4 instead of 15,4 that is whay I thought the scale is 1:15 and the 4 is referring to something else.

I would be happy to see them both - when you saw that the Sch. baboon is a long time retired - that means it can be not in the same quality as the Baboon I have. I know that only recently figures got improved (not all of them - i.e. the weird Red panda).

Thanks for helping!
