PostSubject: My Collection :) - a parcel from Roger & Christmas finds - 13th Feb   Fri Nov 06, 2015 5:55 pm

I came home this weekend, and, for once, decided to take the time to clean up my collection and take photos of them all! These aren't all of them - some are on my body box, waiting to be painted. Razz The photos aren't brilliant, because it's very cloudy outside and there is almost no light Sad but I doubt I'll have a chance to take better photos of them all any time soon!

Shetland Pony Mare - this was the little model that kicked off my collection. :) I bought her in 2007, during a school trip to the Lisbon Oceanarium - they had a lot of Schleich models in the gift shop!

Terrang - a very treasured model, I've always wanted one of Maureen Love's molds, and when my friend was selling him for cheap, I jumped at the chance! He's really lovely, and so delicate  I love you

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Overo Chestnut from the Breyer Ginger. This girl was sent to me quite damaged, as a girl had used her as etching practice - she had three big circles on her. I wanted to save her original paint, though, because it really is quite lovely, so I turned those circles into something a bit more... Acceptable. Razz And haired her, too, though I believe it could use a re-hairing as it was the first time I tried it, and it is a bit shoddy. Rolling Eyes

It is very interesting your collection, you have several Schleich as it is usual but you added so many Papo and it is great to see your choices. I have that Papo Arabian mare too . We know she is not the most acurate Arabian mare but she is quite artistic. I miss in your collection the Papo Barb mare, another remarkable figure. Very Happy
Your repaints are wonderful! cheers
Interesting also these SIMBA and Breyer but as a wildlife collector, I have to notice that you have a pair of hedgehogs! Laughing  Ouriços cacheiros são a coisa mais amorosa deste mundo! flower

Yes, I started with Schleich, so I stayed loyal to them for quite a while - however, when their quality started lowering, I decided to stop buying them, as I fell it wasn't worth it to spend money on something I didn't like. I have many more, but those are getting ready to be painted, and not in any state to be introduced Laughing And Papo aren't very realistic, but unlike Schleich, their quality hasn't gotten any worse, and they have a look that is very much their own - like Julips, for example, they aren't realistic but they have a lot of life and personality. Even their standing horses have motion! So, I would rather spend my money on them. I would have more, but I can't find them for sale in Portugal - the only one I could find was the Arab, in Vasco da Gama, the others were ordered online.
And I love the Barb mare! She in in my wishlist (along with the Percheron foals, and the Breton, and and and... Very Happy) I haven't been able to find her for sale, though, and I'm keeping myself from looking, as I've spent too much money on models this year, and I can't spend more! silent
Yes, I do have my hedgehogs, and a Bullyland one in the way, são mesmo super fofinhos, gostava de ter um de estimação bounce bounce I'm looking to make a little collection of them, and get a capybara or two as well Very Happy And maybe some deer and otters... They're all animals I'm very fond of, but there aren't as many to collect as there are horses!

Thank you!! sunny I am focusing more on Papo horses now, like I told Roger, I think they're far more pleasing to look at than Schleich, and that is what I look for the most when buying my miniatures. They have lots of personality, and look so much more alive than Schleich, especially the newer ones.

You've found Papo in Vasco da Gama? Do you remember where? I've never found Papo there. There's the Immaginarium with a selection of Schleich and the Presse Linha with the whole Schleich range. I confess that when I go there, my goal is not the shopping Center but Oceanarium instead. Fabulous place with a wonderful shop with several brands as you pointed.
I do collect all foxes, why don't you collect hedgehogs, it could result in a very beautiful collection and it won't ever take to much room. :)
Money is always a transversal problem to many people, we think it is an exclusive Portuguese phenomenon but it is not. Laughing
By the way, you can find some Papo horses in Lisbon at Rua do Ouro, just next to the entrance to the subway. Not the Barb unfortunately. Crying or Very sad

I don't remember, sadly, though I think the shop has closed already, anyway. It was a very long time ago, and I've looked for them every time I go there, and haven't been able to find them again. Sad For a long time, the only ones I've found are Schleich, like you said in Imaginarium and Presse Linha. Apparently Fnac carries Mojo (they are in their online shop) but I've never seen any in the VG shop... scratch
I could try collecting hedgehogs Very Happy At least the ones easier to get, I doubt I'll try to buy older or more expensive ones until I have a steady income, ahah.
Ooh! Thank you for letting me know. cheers I'll have to drag a friend with me to check it out as I always get lost if I wander around Lisbon on my own!

My Bullyland hedgehog (and a few horses) have arrived, I'll see if I can take photos today Very Happy

Yes, let me know which hedgehogs do you have, maybe I can find something for you. Very Happy By the way, my favorite hedgehog of all is the newer from CollectA. :)
Half the toy shops in Lisbon have closed during these last years so, probably that shop doesn't exist anymore. It is a fact that FNAC carries Mojo but I have only seen them in the Baixa-Chiado shopping Center. However, it is not hard to find Mojo in Lisbon these days, Science4You shops are selling lots of Mojo (Animal Planet) and also some Maia & Borges. Não são lojas normais mas mas uma espécie de quiosques no meio dos corredores.
Looking forward to see your new aditions! bounce

Hedgehogs are wonderful, and it is fun to collect hedgehogs, even if there aren't very many Very Happy

I only have those Schleich ones, and the Bullyland I posted about below. A small collection, so far, but they all start small!
That's sad Sad I've never seen those Science4You shop things, but I haven't been shopping around Lisbon for quite a while. Still, I will search for them next time I visit, and who knows, I might get myself a couple of new additions. Very Happy There is a toy shop here in Elvas, which sells Schleich and Papo. It's about 30 seconds from where I live, a dangerous location, as I have to restrain myself from stepping inside every time I go shop for groceries Laughing I know there is a toy shop in Badajoz as well, and I think they sell Papo, but I was following my friends around while they shopped so I didn't have much time to check.

I did get photos of the new additions on Saturday, but sadly didn't have the time to post them until today, as I've been a bit busy with exams. But now they're over, so without further ado, here are the new guys! I'll have to apologise for the photos again, it seems playing around with my camera is not a good idea, as I accidentally set it to take very low resolution photos, so all these are small and terrible.

I've never seen CollectA horses for sale in Portugal, (though I know they exist, but the only shop I know of that sells them is in the North!) but I wanted to get my favourites before they were retired, so, I ordered them from MPV. Here's the loot:

The little Hannoverian is very very lovely. His sculpt has to be one of the finest I've ever seen - he really does look real. Sadly, the same couldn't be said for his paint. I've since fixed his markings, his hoof and his mane, and will have to paint the remaining legs where the grey from the hooves has been a bit oversprayed. Rolling Eyes

The Shire mare is beautiful! flower She is very big and solid, and has a very kind eye. Her legs came a bit crooked, so I'll have to figure out how to fix them, as the hot water trick didn't seem to work. :/

The Clydesdale cheers This guy is lovely to just hold. I'm not sure if it's his weight, his shape, or both, but I've been finding myself picking him up and carrying him around just for the sake of it. Laughing He'll be painted, as his colour is a bit bright, right now, for my taste. He suffers from crooked legs too.

The Percheron mare I love you Percherons are my favourite breed, so this girl has been in my wishlist ever since the 2015 models were announced. I'm super glad to have gotten her, even though, as some others have pointed out, her hooves are massive!

And the Andalusian - I was torn between this one and the Lusitano, but finally decided to get this guy. He is made of a lighter and softer plastic than the others, a bit like the Schleich shires. (or mine, at least?... Laughing ) The difference in weight is really obvious! He also gets scratched more easily, and seems to have gotten a few scrapes from nothing other than peacefully hanging around my desk... scratch

And, last but not least, a little one that decided to jump into my shopping cart Very Happy The Bullyland hedgehog. He's very small and very cute, though he seems to be lacking ears!

His lack of ears doesn't seem to get in the way of friendship, though...

Thank you!! I love you

LeeAnn, he is not quite that dark, the colour is a bit difficult to capture correctly. This photo shows his colour a bit better:

CollectA horses are really great, I really love them and you got some great ones. Very Happy
The brand was not so illusive in Lisbon not long ago, El Corte Ingles, B e A BA, 4Kids, were some shops in Lisbon selling them. Now El Corte Ingles is selling Mojo, I guess and two others just closed. I also have to acquire my CollectA wildlife online because now I can't find them there and it is not possible for a collector of wildlife figures to live without CollectA.
Thanks for telling which hedgehogs do you own, if I find any missing in your collection among my figures, I'll let you know. Very Happy
Hahah, a shop 30 seconds away, ... é já ali! ... como diria o mais tradicional dos alentejanos. Laughing

Thank you! I must say, I've fallen in love with them as well. I doubt it is the last time I buy them, even though it gets expensive to always order them from abroad.
I've never seen them in Lisbon! I don't think I usually go to those shops though, I had no idea El Corte Ingles sold models at all! I thought it was a clothes shop Laughing A única loja que sei que vende é em Aveiro... Ou seja, longe Very Happy Uma amiga comprou lá alguns.
Ooh thank you!
Quase não é preciso sair da cama lol!
