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?

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. :)
