Maybe-they said, they want to procue more licensed lines like Batman etc..Maybe also Starwars-from 2015, every year a new SW movie will come out-so Schleich can amke a lot of Money with Starwars, and next yera, a new Jurassic Park movie Comes out....I could magine, the new owner will stop the animal lines with thee xception of Dinos and Horses...I hope, he will do-the Quality of Schleich is down to a very low and poor Level, so we all could save the Money for These ugly figures and spend it for the really good brands...
Maybe also Lord of the Rings or the hobbit figures?!  bounce bounce

Bongo, where have you found that information? scratch
It doesn't seem plausible to me once animals represent their main sales. :)
About minor quality of recent releases I have to agree with you but even if Schleich continues with a poor selection of figures, you can save easily your money just not buying them. This year I've bought only 3 for my collection. Very Happy

Thank you for information, Yvette!
If to say fair, I already don't want to buy Schleich. I bought some animals of this year, but if to compare that with older models, the new figurines are really worse. It's really horrible that Schleich started to do just toys, quality became worse with each year. But nevertheless Schleich is the most popular brand on market. So, yesterday I visited one shop, where we could buy Papo, later this shop started sell Safari, and yesterday I found that the most part of figurines is Schleich and animals were horrible painted, I never seen such paint before. I feel like Schleich practice monopoly. It's everywhere.
But, for example, Papo is just in some places, and there are no all of models, but it has the best quality, I think.  Crying or Very sad 
Yesterday I also bought the old lioness by Mojö and I should say she is better than the new lioness by Schleich, and prices very differ: Mojö is really cheaper.

Very very true. Papo still puts out excellent figures, year after year.

…and I thought this image -- which has probably already been posted somewhere on this forum -- might be a good icon to use whenever we discuss the decline of Schleich.

We probably won't know what to expect until we can see what's being released in 2015 and even then we may have to wait til we see them in shops with the stock photos and all.

I think we'll have to wait until at least 2016 to judge any change (if there is to be any). I'm sure they already have the 2015 line already planned out. However, we should be able to compare quality of the figures to years previous, and see if that has changed.

I was thinking next year because the new owner may have already changed a few things the old owner had planned.

Would it be possible that Schleich (previous owner) already made a deal/contract with D.C. Comics before the new company bought it? I mean I don't really mind that they broaden their figurine lines (similar to Bullyland) but I hope their animals don't go neglected.
I dunno about 2015/2016 years, I think that as far as planning and executing a new line the new owner would only be able to maybe change a few figures. I think to really see how things are going to be with the company.
