Congratulations Jean Luke for the additions. Those are great figurines and a must have.

It is nice to have available the new figurines right away, I have to wait at least 1 year (or more) to have them in Peru, or 6 month to get them from the states.

all you rmodels are great, congrats on getting them.

Can someone tell me why Schleich makes nearly all of there animals with their head turned looking sideways? they almost do it with every hoofed animal they make and it drives me nuts...I wish they would make some that look straight ahead or have heads slightly lowered etc!

The front foot of the buffalo doesnt seem to be straight - the foot tilts up slightly, is that just this model that has been purchased or do all the models have this problem? It reminds me of the Ostrich Chick bending forwards problem....

I think all models are the leg like that.
I found the installation quite nice, I think it lacks a little contrast in the painting. He has looked a bit bland and dull.
Ears, horns, etc. ... to really figure top.
Cella sometimes with the following models after a few months, however I find it amusing.
Thank you to you all and good hunting begins additions to you Wink

Maybe it is because he is supposed to move that his foot is like that ????

Congrats! I specially like the kudu. Looking at your photos maybe I will change my mind with it and I buy it.

That's true! When I put some of my animals on my shelves some of them seems to look "something" to the side. BTW, the okapi in your avatar is looking to the side too Very Happy

Congratulation Jean-Luc Very Happy

I already bought the Kudus, buffaloes and wolverine.

I think Schleich improved the 2011 models quality.

Far less chubby than the older... I will do some walk around pics soon Wink

My guess? Schleich knows action poses are less playable than static poses, but they've worked out that models just standing there are both uninteresting and, frankly, less realistic-looking. So the turned head is their way of making the animals look real and less generic.

Thank you Susanne!! I love them all, the Akhal-Teke Stallion is wonderfully painted - the coat has the metallic shine to it. The Buffalo, texas longhorns and calves and Knabstrupper Stallion have to be my favourites. I will post some pictures of them all soon and of my shelves I mentioned a while back. It's so annoying not having a computer (it crashed if you didn't know) Rolling Eyes
Yes getting new models is really fantastic, I love the feeling, exciting Very Happy
