PostSubject: Gedevan Tapirs Collection   Wed May 28, 2014 11:07 pm

Hello, Friends!
Thank you very much for your feedback and comments. I have a small collection, and I do not think there are very interesting figurines in it. I've got 36 tapirs, of which only 25 are original.
They are all together here. Please, do not pay attention to tapir with crown – it is the Main Tapir for this period. My friends think I am strange - they are right.  Very Happy  Very Happy 

PS. Sorry for my English!! And look, please, the Elephant I bought for my godchild.

I took descriptions of some tapirs from the comments of Willybacoman (Netherlands), Guruzen and some other collectors from Collectorsquest. If these descriptions are not right, correct me, please.

1. Pfeiffer Austria in the 1920's and 1930's, scale about 1:20 I found also date 1935 (?)

2. Britains Malayan tapir made in UK - 70's - Hardplastic

3. Prior Hong Kong in the 1970's, scale about 1:35, hardplastic. This model is a smaller and direct copy of the 1970's Britains plastic model.

As I told in your other topic, I splited this one where you can show and update your tapir collection. Very Happy
I am glad you decided to share your collection and it is a great collection indeed. Very Happy
Some tapirs I didn't know before. You have Pfeiffer, a real old treasure and some other vintage figures also very nice. Very Happy
Choco egg figures are not usually very old, honestly I don't know vintage Japanese brands but maybe someone can help you finding the correct date for that figure. Very Happy
Willy, is a good source and a friend of this forum, others collectors on CollectorsQuest are also very knowledgeable but don't forget to use the link I provided once you'll find lots of figures and information there.

What is "Mojito"? It has a tag, do you mean it looks a little version of Mojo figure? scratch Very Happy

Congratulation, you have a very nice tapir collection  Very Happy  The "Kaiyodo" tapir is indeed not a Kaiyodo, it is a Furuta from the Chocoegg Series 6. The series 6 and 7 are not identified as Kaiyodo.  Wink 

Your Pfeiffer tapir could be from 1935 and later because Hausser Elastolin bought the Pfeiffer company and didn't stop the Pfeiffer "Tipple-topple" production.
The Starlux is 1964, the year I was born  drunken  and the unkown tapir could be an unknown Clairet or a copy.

A very, very impressive collection of tapirs  Shocked 
There are many I have not seen before Very Happy

Great presentation ! I love it that you show an overview first, and then all the nice close-ups  Applause 

I have a question about no 21 : Does the tag say Warm Fuzzy ? They have "Warm and Fuzzy"some at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] , and I often wondered what brand they are. Please wil you tell a bit more about it ? Very Happy

A wonderful collection of my favourite animals cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers 

I miss the Kabaya tapir calf, the Playvisions Brazilian tapir ,the Kaiyodo Yotsuba malayan tapir and the little Nayab (looks like your bigger Mojito) malayian tapir. And i think the homemade Moutain Tapir by Ana is also interesting for you.

And Fisva have made one too.

My favourite figur is your uncle baku, never heard of them before.

For most people, Roger, a 'mojito' is a white rum-based cocktail which dates back to at least the 16th century.  
Maybe the Man from Zwolle, who is a worldwide authority on rum (drunken), can provide further information... Wink Laughing

Dear Kikimalou! Special thanks for you! Tell me, please: “Furuta from the Chocoegg Series 6” is absolutely modern figurine, isn’t it?
Have you ever seen tapir 8? Am I right about PPR?

Dear Widukind and SUSANNE!
Thank you very much. Yes, you are right, Uncle Baku is Warm Fuzzy. Generally speaking it is not hardplastic. It is soft material and this figurine squeaks! The biggest and the strangest tapir in my collection.

I ordered it (with “Mojito” also) from American on-line shop “Tapir and Friends”. Probably this shop has own names for some figurines. It is interesting that authors of Uncle Baku ignored that Tapir has 3 fingers on hind legs and 4 fingers on forelegs. But the authors of “Mojito” knew this fact and they make forelegs of their tapir like paws of a frog. Laughing

Andreas, certainly you are right the homemade Moutain Tapir by Ana is very interesting for me. I asked Ana but it is impossible to order this tapir now as I understand.  Crying or Very sad 

Also I am very interested in all tapirs I haven't, for example:

Thanks for extra pictures! Very Happy I've found on tapirback shop about Mojito! Laughing That's the name of the figure, so funny. Very Happy
One day I asked something to a CollectorsQuest collector and he linked me to this forum once he is and was still a member here. If you are patient and a regular visitor of our forum, soon or later you'll find these figures and many others. Very Happy
