...what would they be? Assume there is some all-knowing animal model genie that knows everything and will give you the answers.

Make your list here! bounce

1) Who decides what breed and pose each horse model is - you or Deborah?
2) Why don't you have a fjord mare?
3) Is there a fjord mare in progress?
4) and 5) I don't have any more right now Laughing

1.) Why are the most of your figures male animals? Razz 
2.) Do the costumers buy more figures of the common or the rarer species? 
3.) Who sculpts your wildlife models?
4.) Do you have partnerships with zoos and/or conservation organisations? 
5.) Do you plan to have more distriboutors in different countries?

Very interesting thread  Very Happy

1) (A bit the same as LeeAnn), who decied what breeds to make of horses and why?
2) Who decides the choices you make for species in your range, and based on what?
3) How does your Quality Control work and what criterias do you have to your models?
4) How are the conditions on the Chinese CollectA factory?
5) Do you think it could be neat to introduce more named artists for your models?
6-BONUS Question!) Will you make other models in the Deluxe scale or only horses, (and why no Draft breeds in the Deluxe line)?

Speaking about brands like Collecta is very interesting. So many questions especially for Deborah.
1. LeeAnns first one.
2. Where do you get your inspiration Deb?
3. Do you sculpt horses using real horses as reference? Like do you go in a field or something? =D
4. When there will be some nice Scandinavian horse? Fjord, FWB, North Swedish Horse, Jylland Horse? Perhaps Icelandic? :)

(Now I go to dream she'd really answer me Very Happy)

All of mine center around there prehistoric figures.

Why haven't you made any Creatures from before the Dinosaurs?

Can we expect more small Dinosaur species from you in the future?

Why are your products so hard to find in stores?

Can we expect a lot more Prehistoric Mammals from you?

Will all of you products from 2006 2007 and 2008 be revamped at some point?

1. Do you feel especially competitive with Mojo Fun?
2. Are you embarrassed by how bad some of your older Wildlife and Dinosaur figures are in comparison to excellent your recent sculpts are?
3. And don't you want to update those figures using the fantastic artists you now have working for you? (I'm borrowing this question from Takama above!)
4. Do you hope that in 20 years, you are the Evil Empire of animal toys the way Schleich is now? and will you start letting your standards slip when that happens?
5. Do you already feel smug? (I think you do.)

1) Are you going to update some of your older dog figures in the future to match up with more recent releases? (Such as the Collies and others released at the same time.)
2) What animals are in consideration to be made currently?
3) Why is it that some models from your company take a very long time to be available to those outside of Europe? Especially the US.
4) What animals have you tried to make but ultimately had to cancel due to design issues,etc. ?
5)Will you ever release additional figures to go with the male figures? To make a "family" so to speak?

I would ask them if they could pretty-please add a bay standardbred to the lineup, since the majority are bay in the real world. Very Happy
