PostSubject: Papo tigers and lion qustions   Mon Sep 22, 2014 5:06 am

Hi! So I just have a couple questions about a couple Papo figures. First off is the tiger nursing figure. I couldn't find any reviews so I came here Wink. Are the cubs each a separate figure or are they all connected? My other question is about the lioness with cub figure. Does the cub come out of the mouth? I have heard that it does but isn't designed to. Do you guys think it would damage the figure badly? Thanks guys! Very Happy flower

I haven't any pictures at the moment but I try to reponse your questions
1.) Yes, the cubs are seperate figures, but there are a group that you can't seperate everyone single.
2.) No, the cub is solide in the mouth of the lioness

Unless you were a skilled sculptor and used to working with plastic, etc., removing the cub from the mouth would definitely damage the piece. It's all part of the same plastic piece; you'd have to carve it out and resculpt the mouth of the adult and the body of the cub. (it's packed away so I'm going off of memory, but I'm pretty sure they are not separate pieces glued together.)

Bryan's answers to the other questions are the same ones I'd give.

Thank you!
Yeas, agree by part: she is too orange and her cubs look not detailed because of paintwork. I don't understand: why, why Papo do dark BROWN stripes on tigers? But in generaly I like its paintjob, despite theses minuses, it's very accurate.

What I don't understand on Papo is why they are so expensive? CollectA has a better paintjob and they are cheaper  scratch
In my eyes the brown isn't bad at all, the stripes aren't completly black.

CollectA is chinese brand if I right remember, life in China is cheap, especialy for us, foreigners.
They almost are, but Papo do it too light Sad
And about the prices: Schleich is one of the oldest brands, and, I think, it is reason (for Schleich) why its prices are higher and higher when its quality don't be improve (before 2015, 2015 figurines are very nice, I think). Maybe we pay just for country of brand...

Isn't CollectA a British brand? Schleich can have these prices, because so many people buy figures of them and they are in almost every toystore, if they wouldn't they wouldn't have any chance.

I'm confused. On russian sites wrote that is British company. So maybe it is Britains based company in Hong Kong? Or I don't understand again? scratch

Both CollectA and Mojö were created as British brands but their facilities are in Hong Kong. I believe Mojo keeps their British "branch" while CollectA not.
We can find "Designed in U.K." in more recent Mojo figures. Also, manager/sculptor, photographer are English, besides the Polish and Chinese sculptors too.
The extension of their websites is also an indicator. Mojo uses .eu - domain available for organizations resident in Europe or in European hands.
CollectA uses .biz - a generic designation to business without a geographic assignment.
We can also remember that CollectA was originally a trademark owned by Procon (Asia)
I conclude that CollectA is a Hong Kong company. Very Happy
