PostSubject: My Schleich's 2011 release   Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:56 pm

Hi guys,

Yesterday, I received my unpaid parcel from Miss Nicollete Lerch of the Modellpferdeversand (MPV). Yes, unpaid. lol!

As far as I know, MPV is the only online store in the world that deliver the goods first, and pay later. Very strange right? But it is true. Kudos cheers

And take note, their shipping and handling charges is very affordable too. I was charged for a total of 16 Euros only for the four Arelan figures with the 22 animal figures altogether. And since I am not from any of the EU countries, I am free of the GST charges in which is very very advantage of me. So, my total charges is only came up to 151 Euros inclusive of the S&H charges already.

Normally, it took 10 days for a parcel to arrive from Germany to Singapore. But this time I got it after 16 days only. Anyway, it doesn't matter I guess because the parcel from USA to Singapore normally takes three weeks.

Unfortunately, I can only post my photos either tonight or tomorrow because I couldn't find my USB cable. Crying or Very sad So, I can't transfer my files just yet.

One more thing, all my new stuffs are all made in Germany except for the four Arelans which are still from the PROC.

One thing I forgot is I forgot to request for a new Catalog. What a waste.

Anyway here's the list first for the January 2011 released:



Akhal-Teke stallion 13690
















Pinto Mare 13696













Pinto Yearling 13695













Knabstrupper Stallion 13689










Dartmoor Pony Stallion 13692













Falabella Mare 13688












Falabella Foal 13687









Texas Longhorn Cow 13685















Texas Longhorn Calf 13684












Poitou Donkey Foal 13686











Grey Goose Cygnet 13680







Grey Goose Gander 13679







Grey Goose 13678











Wolverine 14646

















Giant Tortoise Young 14643














Emperor Penguin with Chick 14632










Arctic Fox Kit 14639












Arctic Fox 14638
















African Buffalo Calf 14641











African Buffalo 14640














Kudu Calf 14644











Kudu Antelope 14645
























Although this year is a Year of the Rabbit, still I made a pass since I don't collect Rabbits and also I don't collect cats except for the old Pedigree Cats which I made an exception before.

Congratulations, Ronald. I know it must be extra-difficult to collect Schleich and other lines when you live in Singapore and/or Philippines, so I think it's very good that this time your location turned out to be to your benefit... cheers

Here is something else to help you feel better - DHL packages of up to 2 kgs cost 13.90 euros to send from Germany to the USA, but they typically take 6 weeks to arrive. Recently, over the holidays, I had to wait 8 weeks for a package. I'd almost forgotten about the figures contained therein... What a Face

Well done and we will enjoy the photos when you post them.

Thanks Kirill.

It's true, they are a good and trusted online seller. As I have said, the only one I know sells and deliver goods and pay later policy. I hope you will receive your order soon. bounce bounce bounce

You are actually right, Phil. Buying and collecting these stuffs are quite difficult for me especially Schleich is not available in Singapore. Of course, the most difficult is always the financial side. Luckily, I don't have to pay for the GST charges because I saved a lot from not being charged for it. Plus the fact that the Singapore Dollars is very strong nowadays against other foreign currencies. Last year alone, 1 Euro cost me 2.1 Singapore Dollars. Now, it's only 1.70+. And US Dollars dropped from 1.6 four years ago to 1.2-1.3 the most at this moment. These factors is helping me to save more dollars than usual. So, less starving and more food for me to eat. Very Happy

And buying stuffs from online store is always a gamble for me because I can't simply choose for the good ones. I am only relying to their catalog's photos.

Plus the expensive S&H charges especially that the USPS has almost doubled their charges since last year. Normally, postal cost from Germany to Singapore is not that bad especially if the seller uses the non registered mail postage. But very few seller does that because it's risky. And for a normal days, stuffs from Germany only takes 10-14 days to arrive here in Singapore. US takes 2-3 weeks on the non peak season though.

Actually they are all good. But I must say, I am quite disappointed with the new Cape Buffalo. The calf is nice but the bull is not unfortunately.

Thanks Ken and Happy Chinese New Year to you and to all the Chinese around the world. cheers


Well, my next project would be the CollectA, Papo and the Schleich's May release. I am still thinking whether I will give the Safari Ltd a pass this year or just wait for the review from other members first.

Hello fellow Golden Stater. If the package is sent from Germany to USA via DHL, it will cost 13.90 euros if up to 2 kgs and about 31 euros if up to 5 kgs and it will normally take six weeks. This package took two additional weeks because of the snowstorms in Europe at the time it was mailed and the glut of incoming international packages to USPS just prior to Christmas.

Some of the other mail services from Germany for small packages will arrive in 7-10 days or even less. If you have any specific questions about your orders, please feel free to ask me for information or advice via PM, Martin.

Which order, or which items should you acquire? Well, that is up to you, of course!

Phil G.

I find that my Buffalo's color is very dull especially the face. I am a bit disppointed because the Papo and CollectA released their Buffalo last year and yet, Schleich's Buffalo is not as good as theirs.

But maybe you are right, your buffalo has a better paintings than mine.

Yeah, I need a good review for Safari Ltd before I decide to buy. As you know I don't have luck collecting them. lol!

Very excited to see your review soon. bounce bounce bounce

Thanks for the pics, Ron!
Now I can see that the Grey Geese are actually grey Wink On the first official pics they looked more brown.
Could you take some size-comparison photos with the geese next to some Schleich European animals? And Mallard ducks, particularly?

The pictures are great, thanks for these.

I was really excited when I got my models but for some reason I feel a little disapointed about the Kudu - it is small compared to other and existing models and I am unhappy about that. The adult kudu should be more bigger in my hands like the other models but it is so slim and light and small...I feel let down! I cant help feeling like this. Other models feel much more meatier, solid, big compared to the Kudu adult..... Sad

Hm, I'm surprised to hear that. I was thinking that Papo kudu is too big and hoped that the Schleich one would be smaller to fit other Schleich shorties in my African displays - rhinos, elephants, lions...

When ordering from USA I only use VPOST and costs much less and a 4kg only cost me about S$40.00. As it compare to USPS = 30.00 dollars saving.

Maybe we should combine?

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Could you take some size-comparison photos with the geese next to some Schleich European animals? And Mallard ducks, particularly?

I just came back to Singapore today. I will take some photos of them together as soon as I can Kirill.

Congratulations, Ronald. I know it must be extra-difficult to collect Schleich and other lines when you live in Singapore and/or Philippines, so I think it's very good that this time your location turned out to be to your benefit... cheers

Here is something else to help you feel better - DHL packages of up to 2 kgs cost 13.90 euros to send from Germany to the USA, but they typically take 6 weeks to arrive. Recently, over the holidays, I had to wait 8 weeks for a package. I'd almost forgotten about the figures contained therein... What a Face

Well done and we will enjoy the photos when you post them.

Thanks Phil for your important info regarding the postage cost. I will take note of that. Thanks. cheers

You are actually right, Phil. Buying and collecting these stuffs are quite difficult for me especially Schleich is not available in Singapore. Of course, the most difficult is always the financial side. Luckily, I don't have to pay for the GST charges because I saved a lot from not being charged for it. Plus the fact that the Singapore Dollars is very strong nowadays against other foreign currencies. Last year alone, 1 Euro cost me 2.1 Singapore Dollars. Now, it's only 1.70+. And US Dollars dropped from 1.6 four years ago to 1.2-1.3 the most at this moment. These factors is helping me to save more dollars than usual. So, less starving and more food for me to eat. Very Happy

And buying stuffs from online store is always a gamble for me because I can't simply choose for the good ones. I am only relying to their catalog's photos.

Plus the expensive S&H charges especially that the USPS has almost doubled their charges since last year. Normally, postal cost from Germany to Singapore is not that bad especially if the seller uses the non registered mail postage. But very few seller does that because it's risky. And for a normal days, stuffs from Germany only takes 10-14 days to arrive here in Singapore. US takes 2-3 weeks on the non peak season though.

When ordering from USA I only use VPOST and costs much less and a 4kg only cost me about S$40.00. As it compare to USPS = 30.00 dollars saving.

Maybe we should combine?

Happy Chinese New Year!!!


Yeah, I am thinking to use the Vpost the next time I buy from USA. People said, it's a lot cheaper. Will let you know if I have a plan next time. Thanks for the offer by the way.

Hm, I'm surprised to hear that. I was thinking that Papo kudu is too big and hoped that the Schleich one would be smaller to fit other Schleich shorties in my African displays - rhinos, elephants, lions...

The SCHLEICH great kdud is smaller than the PAPO. It reach the same size than the older Schleich kudu but but but IT IS NOT CHUBBY cheers .

Yeah, you are absolutely right, Christophe. If you put the Papo next to the Schleich's Greater Kudu, the Schleich's can be a junior stud.

Hey, and you even start to speak Dutch, and i don't even speak Philippian... Embarassed
But ok, maybe we can speak a little bit Chinese, although Kantonese, and no Hokin... Rolling Eyes
Ah, what the heck, we speak English together, isn't it?! Cool

Yeah, I don't have to speak Chinese here because I can use to speak in English and Filipino at work and English at home with my Chinese landlord only. Believe me, all the Chinese words that I know are all naughty things only. Very Happy :) Laughing

I took some pictures of these Gray Geese together with other Schleich Ducks, Geese and Swans to see their sizes.

Ha ha ha. :) I like the greenery, it's very cooling and fresh looking. Very Happy
It is just a Green pelt paper I used for the grass effects, by the way. Sad thing is, my hands are not steady enough to make my shots steady. So, my pictures are blurred also. lol! Plus my camera lens are old and not clean anymore. Crying or Very sad

He's often referred to as "Merlin" but I know him as Schleich 70205 Zauberer. Sorry if that doesn't really clear things up!

Opps... Thank you for the correction, Phil. Sorry, since I am not collecting human figures, I am totally innocent and unfamiliar about them. Embarassed

But nonetheless, I still like his wizard looks. It reminds me of Gandalf. :)
