Willy, I don't want to explain you nothing about animals, you have a long history as collector! But this leopard even with strange painting is clearly a leopard. See for example, the very long tail, too long for a jag and jaguars are darker inside of the black marks! It is some bodybuilt like a jag but you can easily see the shape of the skeleton like in a leopard!
About the gorilla a young gorilla is a nice optionthinking in a sub-adulte simce CollectA has a gorilla baby!

BTW Nicole was obsessed by Papo Mothers with cubs and she doesn't wanted the adulte gorilla because it was not able to carry the baby in its mouth! So she gaves a new mother to the gorilla baby! lol!
Fortunately I still have an old pic of it, the mother is the Bullyland giganatosaurus!Very Happy
I love Nicole's sense of humour! tongue

Congratulations for nice new figures Willy!
I'm not sure about species of both "raccoons", the first one could be ring tail and the other one is rather similar to raccoon dog, isn't it? :)

PostSubject: Some AH WWF Models and a Corgi Toys Model came in last week...   Sat Feb 26, 2011 2:27 pm

I think it was thursday, that i had this little lot coming in.
I paid only a few euro's for it, so that is nice.
These are models made for the Dutch Supermarket Albert Heijn(AH), in their WWF series.
I have quit a few of them, including these birds.
But as i knew that my good friend Christophe liked them, i did quickly catch them.
The green frog with broken legg is for myself, as i missed him in this series.
There is a toco toucan included in this deal to, but the seller forgot to pack him, so this will follow later, and i will put a pic of my own here to see him.

The rhino is from a Safari-set from Corgi Toys in the 1960's.
Good for me, that i have pictured many many models in my head, so i quickly recognize them when i see them. Laughing
Here are some pics:

That is a very cool toy set with the VW and the rhino. When I was 10 years old on my birthday I received a safari jeep with a rhino but I do not remember the brand. It quickly became my favorite toy.

PostSubject: Diverse New Items from different makers came in for March 2011...   Thu Mar 31, 2011 11:03 pm

In several different lots, i had the same difference in models and makers coming in in march.
Here are all the pics, which i didn't show in the other categories.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Made in China, quit reasonable...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Made in China, a copy of the AAA model from China, which was made in former Schleich series to.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Made in China, the one in front is new, so another variation.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Made in China, a freshwater turtle, not bad at all.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Also made in China, and not very accurate, but for that he is a lot of fun, as he is movable, and makes sounds...
When you push down the head, you hear the roar of a lion first, at the second time, you hear the sound of a zebra which is afraid and is warning for predators, very realistic sounds!
I did put it on youtube specially for you guys, here is the link:

PostSubject: Different older models came in for August 2011...   Tue Aug 30, 2011 2:56 pm

Yesterday and today, i had some very different models coming in...
Here are the pics:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Reindorf African elephant
I couldn't find anything on this brand on the net.
It was a coffee or chocolate brand probably in the 1950's and/or 1960's, which gave this model away then.
So if any of you knows more about this brand, please tell me so... Laughing

Jean Höffler Lion

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Jean Höffler Wolf

I had both models as a child, but i was missing them in my Jean collection now, so i found them again.
The wolf looks a little bit like a fox, but i am sure that it was ment to be a wolf.

And i found some nice U-Ei/Ferrero choco-egg models to:

Ah, you are saying that it is a wolf because you are afraid I ask you for it for my foxes collection! Wink
Congratulations for your "new" figures and BTW, I'm sure it is a wolf! tongue

Again some very interesting and fine figueres from Willy. cheers

The little elefant is ever so cute, - tell the man with the broom he must not pull its tail affraid

Thankyou so much for sharing, Willy.
You are a gem to the forum, you really expand our knowledge of strange brands. Others do it too, of course, but I think I am not offending anyone to say that you are really the expert in rare, old brands Wink

Thank you very much Susanne, Harriet, Andreas and Rogerio!
If i am an expert, that is the question, but you get one little by little trough the years of collecting.
It is just, that i stumble on nice things during my roams on the internet, mainly e-bay, and then find those things. cheers
How more brands you see and collect, how easier it gets to recognize them on the first look...
I never heard of this mark or brand Reindorf before, and as i said, i can't find anything on it yet... Rolling Eyes
The elephant has the same quality as the Linde and Siku figurines, more the first actually, and the sculpting is quit good to.
Yes Rogerio, the model is a wolf, but has a foxy look ,haha, or maybe even of a German shepherddog.
But when you like it, and i find another one, i will send it to you, ok?
I will do that with fox-models that i don't have myself anyway! Very Happy

I told the zoo-keeper not to pull the elephants tail Susanne, but it was to late, and you see the elephant running now, he was scared! affraid

Of course the U-Ei figurines do not have the highest quality, but the models are nice sometimes.
So many people do collect them, and the eggs to, as they seem to change a lot in colour and shape.
anyway, i thought those 2 meercats were cute, and i liked the lynx, even when he was in parts... Laughing

By the way, for who has the space, there are shops that sell almost life sized models, and some are very good to, but not all...
Some are regular Schleich copies, like the austrich!
But if you search the net for garden figurines like this, you will be wondered how much stuff there is! Shocked


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
This is just an example, but they have so much more!

Ah, Willy! You don't have to send the foxy wolf to me or search for foxes! But of course when you have any fox in double I'm surely glad to know that you will think in me! Very Happy cheers
