PostSubject: The most promising new animal figures in 2011   Fri Feb 04, 2011 10:51 pm

I'm not sure if it is the right section for this post, but I couldn't find a more appropriate one... scratch
Now, when we know what all the major brands are introducing this year, it's high time to kinda sum up the news and share our expectations.
So, among all the new stuff, what are the most promising and exciting figures for you personally? What are figures are you willing to buy the most?

Here’s my Top-10 of 2011 must-haves in decreasing order:
1. Bullyland Lammergeier (What a surprise - Bully on the 1st place of my personal chart!! Never though I'd ever say that...)
2. Papo Mandrill (a monkey at last!!! and it looks good!)
3. Safari Capybara (every new S. American species is precious for me, and this one seems to be in scale with my other neotropical critters)
4. Schleich Kudu
5. Schleich Badger
6. Schleich Cape Buffalo
7. Papo Young Lioness
8. Papo Marmot
9. Bullyland Common Buzzard
10. Schleich Grey Goose
(No Schleich in the Top-3 - what a surprising year for me! :))

The biggest surprises-2011 for me:
- new model range and, hopefully, quality improvement of Bullyland
- Schleich wolverine Wink

The biggest disappointments-2010:
- No new trees by Schleich or CollectA
- Retirement of Schleich black bears
- No new South Asian animals by Schleich…

Please, share your Top-10’s or Top-5’s!

P.S.: It was very interesting to compare my [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] at the end of last year, when I actually seen and/or bought all the new animals. The biggest disappointment was Schleich Malayan Tapir which took #3 in my "must-have chart", but I didn't like it at all when it hit store shelves... And Schleich warthogs - #2 in my pre-chart - became the leaders of my personal preference in 2011.

Kiryuha, I was told by our Schleich representative here in Northern California that the black bear duo will not be retired yet. Perhaps someone has official confirmation of this?

Hm, really? It's strange to hear that. On Schleich site the bears are marked as the ones to be retired in 2011.

Hi old man Kirill! Here’s my Top-10 of 2011:

1. Snow Leopard (CollectA) + baby
2. Mandrill (Papo)
3. Wolverine (Schleich)

4. Young Lioness (Papo) + baby
5. Asian Elephant (Papo) + baby
6. Asian Elephant (CollectA) + baby
7. Badger (Schleich)
8. Manatee (CollectA) + baby
9. Kudu (Schleich) + baby
10. Indian Rhino (Safari)

And bonus (because I don,t know – can I include to the top prehistoric mammals and animals from phantasy line by Schleich? But I very like it!!!)
+ Smilodon (Papo)
+ Brown Bear (Shleich, line Bayala)
+ Porcupine (Shleich, line Bayala)


The biggest disappointments-2010:
- Zebra (Papo)

PS Maybe for somebody an elephants are "banal" and "common" animals...Evil or Very Mad But they are my favorite animals. Laughing Laughing Before today I had only 3 figures of asian elephants by only one brand (Schleich). But now my herd of asian elephants will grow with nice models by at once two brands! cheers cheers cheers

PPS And this top is without my lovely dinos!! Wink Wink Wink

Those are only 10 more wanted, not those I think are the best because I have still not an oppinion.

1. CollectA snow leopard
2. Bullyland bearded vulture
3. Safari Lesser kudu
4. Safari capivara
5. Papo mandril
6. Papo marmot
7. CollectA manatee
8. Schleich wolverine
9. Bullyland Common Buzard
10. Papo camel

Some mentions for other series: Safari Miragaia and caprosuchus, CollectA Lourinhanosaurus and dramatic horses, .

I have already some Schleich 2011: greater kudu, arctic fox and greylag goose. But out of top 10.

I'll buy surely the new Bullyland fox (lost hte retired) and Schleich red fox!

...but promissing is a different thing and I think the CollectA horses will be the best 2011 figures!

Desapointments I'll tell you later...

Laughing Let's gaming Wink .

I was looking at the great planisphere made by Lucky Luke to find my own top 10 among the wildlife range.
First, I already have some figurines.
I bought some because they were the first available : Schleich kudus and buffaloes, Bullyland meerkats.
I bought some because I wanted them more and they were already available : Schleich wolverine, Safari ltd lesser kudu and roadrunner, PAPO young lion(ess)

All of these are out of competition now, the same for the dinos...

SAFARI ltd Indian rhino
SAFARI ltd capybara
SAFARI ltd bobcat
SAFARI ltd American badger
PAPO mandrill
PAPO Asian elephant & calf
PAPO yak
PAPO Bactrian camel
BULLYLAND bearded vulture
SCHLEICH porcupine
COLLECTA manatees

So my Top10 are eleven and there is no number one and no number eleven. I know I will at least buy those one Wink

Here's my top ten (in decreasing order):
Schleich Cape Buffalo and calf
Schleich Red Fox
Safari ltd WW Okapi
Safari ltd Indian Rhino
Schleich Texas Longhorn cow
Schleich Knabstrupper Stallion
Papo lion cub (on back)
Schleich Badger
Papo Mandrill (I do like to look of him, but whether or not I'll buy?)
Schleich Kudu
Bullyland Okapi calf

Surprises:
Safari WW Okapi - wish come true
Schleich African Buffalo and calf - also a wish come true

Disappointments

Schleich: no new cattle breeds

Papo: no new big cats or bigger dinosaurs. Asian elephant was too small.

OK, I don't have any of new figures but my wish list of 2011 items would look like this...
1. Papo young lioness
2. Papo mandrill
3. Schleich kudu
4. Bullyland bearded vulture
5. Schleich Fizzio (porcupine)

That's about it, I'm only into African animals so figure from some other continent would have to really special for me to acquire it...

Oh, I see an outline of the 2011 top-tier hits: CollectA snow leopard, Safari Capybara, Papo mandrill, Bullyland Lammergeier...
I won't be surprised if when we count our votes at the end, there'll be no Schleich in Top-3. A situation noone would have believed if asked two years ago! Surprised scratch

The novelty in 2011 than I had in the hands but looking at pictures of the most hopeful look
1- wolverine Schleich
2- porcupine Schleich
3- badger Schleich
4- birds Bullyland
5- mandrill Papo
6- capybara Safari
7- badger Safari
8- indian rhino Safari
9- manatees Collecta
10- snow leopard Collecta
Large, very nice surprises for me is the wolverine and porcupine. I like these animals. However, it is very disappointing that no company had done the birds of the family Gruidae and Ciconidae.
Referring to the words Kiryuha, IMHO Schleich for wolverine and porcupine is in the Top-3-5 -10

Yeah, wolverine and porcupine could surely be in the Top-10, I guess.
And which bird by Bullyland did you put on the place 4? You need to choose only one :)

Well I wrote the birds, because I had a difficulty which to choose. But since you can only one, then choose Lammergeier.

I think this thread is probably started a little prematurely, most of your TOP 2011 items are not available yet (at least in my country). I personally very like CollectA snow leopards from the pictures but I rather wait until I receive the real ones :)

But the goal of this thread is to share our hopes and wishes BEFORE we see the new figures in shops and hold them in our hands. Then later, when we get all the stuff we want, it'll be interesting to compare our expectations with the real life truth :) Wink

Don't you want to rank them by places? It'll be more convenient to sum up the results of our expectations.

What I really want to get from 2011 new figures:
1.Schleich Kudus!!!
2.Papo lioness!!
3.Schleich badgers
4.Schleich foxes
5.Schleich Dartmoor Stallion
6.CollectA manatees box
7.Papo Elephant with baby
8.Papo Yak
9.Safari Ltd White Rhino
10. Safari Ltd American Badger

I've already bought the wolverine and Arctic fox from Schleich :) Arctic Fox is better than I though, it is very nice figure! I like pose and texture and even this very new kind of paint which is like pearlescent or something. But from wolverine I expected more, I mean I like it, but it could be better. I don't know, maybe face could be more detailed and tail a little bit longer than it is. But in general I like both new models! :)
I'm waiting for kudus (!!!) and also for buffaloes. Although buffaloes are not on my top 10 list first because in my opinion Papo buffalo is much better, second because of it's texture which is, in my opinion too furry(!!). I like calf much more and I will surely buy it soon. I will buy adult too-buffaloes like herds :) . (I hope next year schleich will make female-calf needs mother :) and maybe mum buffalo would be in grazing pose. But this is not right topic to post this kind of thinking :) )
What is not as fine as I wished-the lesser kudu by Safari. In my opinion it doesn't remind real lesser kudu, especially shape of body and legs. Legs are 5 times too thick Sad I know, we may say the same about Schleich gazelle but additionally I don't really like the painting job.
I want also buy the Torak set with bear from Schleich, I like the pose of this new bear very much :) Also I like all new rabbits but none of new cats from Schleich.

Thanks for sharing your expectations, Ana!
And you know, I always like the sharp estimates and remarks you make about various figures. Like this time - about the "pearlescent" paint or the wolverines's details.

I share the same hope! A buffalo female, and in the grazing pose exactly! Wink
Although, seeing how Schleich is lingering with a much-needed ostrich mother, I don't give very high chances for a buffalo cow grazing in the nearest future...

Hi Kiryuha :) I'm happy You like the idea of grazing buffalo female :)
But about pearlescent paint-it was about Arctic fox paint!!! It has something like that, well I don't know if made in Germany versions have it too, but mine-made in China-have this kind of paint. It's very much like snow surface, I'm not sure if it makes figure more realistic but I like it :) But did they took this kind of paint from Elves' line? I don't know Wink

1) Schleich KUDUUUUUU
2) Schleich Kudu calf (no suprise there)
3) Schleich african buffalo female and calf
4) Schleich Artic fox
5) Schleich Badger
That's a good Top-5, no doubt! But what do you mean saying that you only collect Schleich? You don't buy any animal figures by other brands? Why then? I'm curious Wink

13 people have shared they votes to the moment, and I'd like to sum up intermediate results - the whole picture becomes more and more clear :)
I've counted only mentions with no regards to places,as not all the people put their Top-10s in decreasing order. Also, I've counted only wildlife figures and if a person wrote "kudu + calf" I count it as a single kudu"two-figure piece".
So, here we go:
1. Papo Mandrill - 10 votes (inevitable leader!).
2-4. Safari Capybara - 7 votes
Schleich Kudu - 7 votes
Schleich Badger - 7 votes
5. CollectA Manatee - 6 votes
6. Bullyland Lammergeier - 5
Then there are ten figures with 4 votes each:
Papo Young Lioness, Papo yak, Papo Bactrian camel, Papo Asian Elephant;
Safari Indian Rhino, Safari bobcat, Safari American badger;
Schleich Cape Buffalo, Schleich Wolverine;
CollectA Snow Leopard.

Please, those who'd like to take part and haven't voted yet - share your expectations! Our survey would be more representative if we have 20-30-50... respondents. Wink
I think, if we have Top-10s from at least 40 people, we can share the results via Facebook, for example, and present it as the survey of 20% audience of the most influential forum.

I think we can already sum up the results of this little survey, as more and more 2011 figures come to our hands and we can evaluate them properly – but that would be another story…

So, 17 people have shared they votes so far, and the whole picture is more or less clear.
I've counted only mentions with no regards to places, as not everyone put their Top-10s in decreasing order.
Only wildlife figures were counted and if a person wrote "kudu + calf" I count it as a single "two-figure piece".
Here is our Top-9:
1. Papo Mandrill - 12 votes (inevitable leader!).
2. Schleich Kudu – 7.5 votes (lucky luke voted for the kudu calf only, so it has 0.5 more)
3-6. Bullyland Lammergeier – 7 votes
Safari American badger – 7 votes
Safari Capybara - 7 votes
Schleich Badger - 7 votes
7-9. CollectA Manatee - 6 votes
Safari Indian Rhino - 6 votes
Schleich Wolverine - 6 votes
