I can only add, that when we have our items, that the next persons are in line, and one of them could be you Ronald! Very Happy
I never want to have more of certain items, even when they are rare...
But i have to admitt that it went to my head to buy a real big herd of rare pinto's.... affraid

Yes, but Ronald doesn't have to wait in a "pecking order" but can simply "jump the queue" if he wishes, as can anyone else... :)

Willy, I think you should consider getting one of those many newfangled techie devices that will allow you to access the Internet and bid on auctions while you're on the road.

Don't worry Willy, there are only 2 main animals that will have my attention now in the animals, the beagle and the rearing black artist horse. So watch out. I usually bid to win if it is something I need.

Yes Phil, of course Ronald can join in.
But he ment that he would lose probably, because we are very experienced hunters on e-bay.

I am not on e-bay every day, yes, maybe because i want to order my book-keeping with the sellers and so on, but not to buy always.
I first want to pay all the sellers that i bought from the last weeks, and after that i will see again what pops up there..., i can be very patient if i want. Wink
And it has no use to get eachothers money out of the pockets, the main thing is that one of us get what he or she wants, the others will have their chances too in another case.
I know quit well how much certain figurines are worth, and i will never pay to much for an item. jocolor

It's almost like a rugby scrum, isn't it? I'm sure glad I'm not involved in this one. It seems a tad early to me to be bidding this piece up to this level, but hey, it's not my auction..... :)

The dark beagle goes up very high this time indeed, too high IMHO, although the model looks in a great condition.
I think that 250 euro is already very much for this model, but it looks as this is the future...
There are more rare models on e-bay at the moment, and they are going up very high too.... Crying or Very sad

Well, the beagle went for an incredible € 468,78 at the end, and that is a real shock, even to me without tag!!! Shocked affraid
Far over the hill IMHO!
No words for it.... silent

Hey, brother, I feel the same way - shock, but no awe! I don't think that this latest price is "supportable" in the sense that I do not believe a new standard for this particular figurine's price has now been set. I think 250-300 is still the basic range for this one. But who knows? What a Face

Yes, i agree Phil, around the 250 euro should do it normally.
There are not many Schleich figurines in that range thankfully.
But to the end of the year, i want to have a brown pelican(which comes soon Very Happy ), the dark beagle(when it pops up again), and at least 2 or 3 more models of the Künstlerpferde.
When i completed my newer animal-lines, i will try to find some people figurines.

I won so much the last week, i have to see what comes in first, and make an administration of it, the see what is still missing, because i am not displaying everything at the moment.

It may be that now that the price of that beagle went so high other beagles will come available with the hope of the sellers being they could possibly get a Big Price as well! But, then so many may come available that it may bring the price back down. You just don't know...Sue

This beagle will be expensive always!
Never under the 250 euro euro anyway i think... Crying or Very sad
But maybe the price it has got last week, says something about the rareness today...
We must wait to see what happens, but i thnik the same as Phil, it will be higher and higher in time... Shocked

As more people are "finding" Schleich figures, appreciating their quality, and becoming "new" collectors (like me) the demand will continue to climb and prices as well. I can't believe a Musk Ox has almost closed on ebay.com and already is at $71.00! The older model gnu 14162 went for $20.00 and the Water buffalo went for $35.00. We are talking USD. The listing was a fella out of Nova Scotia, Canada with shipping costing $10.00. Has anyone seen a Oryx lately? I have been following Schleich sales on ebay.com but for a couple months and have never seen one. I am trying to re-write the value of the critters on my Gaschers Collector's Guide for Schleich Animals as many have mentioned on this forum how incorrect that part is in the book. Now it looks like I also have to watch for re-paints...Sue

That the musk-ox is going soo high is ridigulous!
It is not worth that amount, for maximum 15 euro's you should have that model! Cool

There are 3 oryx for sale, the first two have rubs, which is quit common in this model, it seems as it has thin painting.
The third one is better, but i tell you that i am bidding on it too, as mine has some rubs too... Laughing

Thanks for sharing. I found the translator button for reading the individual page, but can't get into the area that says if they will ship to USA or how payment is to be...when I try to get a translation for that part it kicks me back to the original page with the picture of the figure...I have to try to figure this out somehow...

Here is recent Water Buffalo auction:

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

Many of these figures auction very cheaply on eBay.de, and some sellers, such as this one, take Paypal, eliminating the problem of wire transfer fees, which if made from US bank accounts, are often as much as $45.

If there is nothing stated about shipment to the USA, then the seller is probably amenable to that. However, you would be well advised to send an eBay PM requesting the shipment total to USA before submitting a bid.

There are many free translation websites available; I like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] .....

And some of us are always on the prowl for some good figurines, so we can keep an eye open for stuff, that some of the other collectors are searching for... :)

This buyer must be sitting on a boatload of cash. They have outbid me on quite a few auctions and the prices they pay are outrageous.

I must admitt Amy, when i had the cash to do so right now, i would buy and pay what would be needed too, to complete my collection.
And i know, that you buy a lot good stuff, and sometimes pay a lot too, but not this outrageous like prices are going now... Shocked affraid

Yes he is still on buying everything from Schleich.
I think he wants to become the Torben of Denmark.

Hi Friends,

i´ve sold yesterday the rare Beagle 16302 in the white/black/brown painting for a new record price. The price was 277 Euro = 352 USD. I´ve never seen before a higher price for a single Schleich figur.

Well, I just finished doing battle again with our newfound friend from Denmark. This gentleman (or gentlewoman) is a very serious and well funded competitor. I hope he/she arrives here to post photos, as there is a big collection growing in Denmark. He/she is not willing to just pay anything for a rare piece, as evidenced by the recent 468 euro beagle auction, in which he/she tabled a bid for 351 euros and then gave up.

But then she paid 519,60 Euro for the next.

There is a second woman from Denmark wich is even buying much a lot.
Sometimes both of them are taking a battle.

I think they should combined her collections, its cheaper for them affraid

Yes, Peter, but that auction was for a small lot of dogs, including a basset and a white poodle, if memory serves. It is an awful lot to spend, however, even for those figurines.

Well, i just had a long phone-call with my friend Torben about many things, and collecting of course...
We talked about the fact if you were rich enough to buy everything you wanted...
Would it be still fun then, and the same satisfaction(although there is always something to find or collect)?

When i would be near completing my Schleich animal-collection, i would be paying much for the last items i miss, just because i had more sources available for those items...
I wish i would be soon there, as i had more cash for older and much more items then, like the old Lineols and other brands...

That's an interesting topic for discussion. Even if you had the money to buy it all, it still wouldn't mean that you could find everything, at least not right away. I think that the ultimate answer depends on WHY one collects..... :)

I wonder if bidding on ebay is similar to gambling for some people. scratch I 've been disappointed when I put my highest bid in and find someone at the last few minutes has outbid me...by only one dollar. Of course their highest bid was probably much more than that but I have felt like I missed it for such a small amount. Sad Can you tell I'm new to buying/bidding on ebay as well as new to collecting Schleich. Some of the figures I have purchased on ebay were not in as good a shape as I'd hoped, so that gives me reason to keep an eye out for ones in better condition and possibly with a tag! Over here in the USA I am watching bidders really bringing up the prices of Schleich's retired figures. Not like the black and white beagle by any means, but still $$$$. Rolling Eyes I guess that's good for other collectors though right? It makes your figures that much more valuable! cheers Sue

Well, i am collecting in the first place because i love animals, and i can´t have a real zoo, so then i like to have them in a smaller PVC version or so, haha.
And it gives me satisfaction trying to complete some lines, and even all when possible, but this will never going to happen i guess, so always something there to hunt for, as i said before... cheers
I hope i have a lot of years left to get near this goal... Laughing

Peter, maybe this person wants a hunting/pack of beagles or so... geek

Don't know about that, but I'm really pleased with this morning's auctions. I had three big targets in mind, and outbid our Danish friend for all three. My gosh, I feel like St. George! Or David, post-Goliath..... Rolling Eyes

I see he won the WWF 15006 Panda, and a few other items, as well. Congrats to him on those.

I see that he also won your latest WWF Orangutan and Classics Farmhouse. I believe that he is a member of this forum, and has been here for a while.

Two brown pelicans with tag today auctioned for about 65 euros each, which is significantly less than they auction for on eBay.com in the last year or so. I guess it is no longer a super-rare item, as sanity has been re-established... exclamation

Congratulation to you.
You have paid in the past only the half prize of her.

Where do you find those Schleich WWF figurines Phil?
I never seem to stumble on them... Rolling Eyes
Now that you have some, you could give me a tip when you see one, without having the fear that i try to outbid you... Laughing

Hello, Willy. There have been just the three auctions, all in the last few months. No problem, I'd be happy to send you a PM when more show up, but don't hold your breath, as who knows how long until the next one. Frankly, with the very high bids made recently for other super-rare items, I'm a little surprised that the winning amounts for these WWF figures haven't been higher, but THAT'S OKAY... :)

I'm not worried about competing with you for these; if you outbid me and win one, then you deserve the figurine and I'll say "Congratulations, job well done..." Wink

I think that is unfortunately the case, Sue. Thank God none of us here have to wrestle with that problem..... Wink exclamation

To follow up on my reply to Willy, two posts above - these WWF 15000 series figurines are what I am always looking for in antique stores, flea markets, sidewalk sales, etc. Yes, it's a bit of a "longshot" but since they were also a World Wildlife Fund product line, I think it may be possible to find them, even here in the USA (good for brown pelicans, but maybe not much else).

Another point - the figurine I have has no mark identifying it as Schleich or WWF product, AFAIK, so maybe that might give a collector a clue as to HOW to search for these online.....
