Hello dear CollectA fans, this is thread with my first horses by Deborah.
When they released first horses made by her, I was positively surprised, but didn't start to collect them, as I wanted to be loyal to Schleich. But as Schleich isn't loayl to collectors Very Happy and focused mostly on kids, I decided to get some CollectA horses. Actually, they are vanishing from czech stores, and they don't sell 2015 horses.

My first horse is 2013 Dartmoor pony stallion, black (maybe I would appreciate the bay one more, but there was only the black):

Very nice model, detailed, I like the waving tail and mane. For me he is a way too narrow, mostly the neck. But he doesn't have extreme pearshape. Here compared to my old Schleich riding pony "Merlin":

He is my first, but definitely not last, I'm allready waiting for two horses from MPV Wink

It was a great decision! I dont have anything against Schleich and actually, not many brands attracted collectors to the world of horses as much as Schleich did, mostly with the older releases. Though, I see the horse hobby a kind of serious thing. What's the interest of collecting horses representing different breeds, colors, gaits, when the focus are braids, flowers, hearts and girlish things like that? scratch
Despite not being consensual, I find Deborah horses very serious works, as serious as horses and collectors deserve. Congrats! Very Happy

Thank you, Roger fot those wise words. I also don't have anything against Schleich, they produced many amazing models, which will always stay among my favourites. They've started my interest in equine breeds and history of breeding. I just disagree with their contemporary philosophy, so it's time to move further. And hiring professional sculptors like Deborah McdDermott is the philosophy I like and it's the best way to reach the serious level of model horses. Wink

Thank you James, LeeAnn, Dummy and Jessica.
His mold is beautiful, I love him, and I'm going to show him on my first live show this weekend.
You're right, Dummy, they are cheap here. Compare to Schleich, this pony from yellow category costs less than Schleich red category. And CollectA foals are only a bit more than HALF price of Schleich foals. But unfortunately, they are just selling what they have in CollectA shelves and not getting new. So in most stores, you just find only few horses/farm animals/wildlife. And they don't have 2015 horses in czech stores neither in czech eshops :-\

Yes its the same problem in India, CollectA has only few stock on shelves and on the online shops, but the cost is 25% less than the european shelf rates of CollectA figures! I do not collect many horses, but CollectA has changed that for me sunny the sculpts are uniquely brilliant cheers

Hi,
as I started collect ColletA, I had to buy of course some of my favourite Hanoverian breed. Here they are:
2010 stallion bay, 2015 mare bright bay
my Deborah McDermott's horses Hanove11

Ladies first:
Nice, quite big mare in elegant pose of piaffe, what I really like - the waving tail and concentration ih her face. She is made from harder plastic, so no bending legs and she stands properly.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Nobles10
She's another dressage Hanoverian for my collection. Compared to the Don Johnson (LE for MPV) and Schleich 13296 Dressage Hanoverian: Jonny still rules in the beauty and realism.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Nobles11

There are few flaws I don't like on her: her ears seem too long to me(twice as long as stallion's ears), her right fore leg is really odd from frontal view and she suffers from extreme pear shape. Compared to the stallion, who has correct body shape and accurate ears:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Hann_c10

And now, the nobleman:
I had this model in my hands few times in past, considering buying him, but because of paintwork, I didn't buy him. Now he isn't available in my country, so I bought him on MPV (and the 2015 mare even didn't appear in local stores). And I was pretty surprised with his colours. Maybe they changed it slightely, or maybe I changed my requirement. He is still a bit reddish, but the shading is nice, no visible airbrush lines.
my Deborah McDermott's horses His_hi11

The sculpt is very good, detailed with good proportions and anatomy. And there's one thing in which he beated Jonny - his face isn't so narrow as Jonny's.
my Deborah McDermott's horses His_hi10

Beauty of this model was confirmed on Prague live show this weekend, when he won first place in other brands warmblood cathegory and third place in all other brands OF horses. So, he is a little champion Very Happy

Hello, I have unexpected addition to my Hanoverian family. Last week I visited nearest toy store to buy some gift for my baby nephew, and I checked the CollectA shelves. Surprisly, they had few new foals - 2016 Paso and 2015 Hanoverian. So I bought this filly:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Hanove15

Actually, I'm a bit dissapointed, in my opinion it looks better on the promo photo. It lacks a foal's cuteness in its face (it looks quite tough mostly from frontal view), the colour is too orange and its mane should be more black, as it is supposed to be a bay horse. Also the tail is oddly painted to a light brown (it is strange, cause the whole paintwork is done by airbrush and tail is just painted with solid colour). But I like the movement with swishing tail and the sculpt is full of details (she even has tiny udder) with corect body shape (not exetreme pear shape). Together with its mother:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Hanove16
It's visible they were released in the same year, they're so much alike! Both caught in dynamic pose full of life, and it seems to me that their heads are similar.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Hanove17
But there is also a resemblance with the stallion, in head shape and also in the leg markings, both have white sock on right hind leg. So no doubts - she is his daughter Wink

And just one family portrait: my Deborah McDermott's horses Hanove14

Hello,
they added some horses to CollectA shelves in my nearest toystore Wink
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec13

So I got two new horses - 2010 stallion and 2013 (mini)Shetty. I love them. I bet you all know them well allready, so just few pics and words.
The Friesian is very nice, love his details, wrinkles, typical long head with very realistic expression. I'm happy that I found one with minimum rubs.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec12

Two of 2010 horses, some of the most beautiful CollectAs I think. It's a shame, that the Friesian has "stallion" on his belly, but he is actually a gelding.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec11

Two blacks with manes and tails waving in the wind.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec10

And finally comparison with Schleich Friesian. Both are of modern sport type I think (rather light with long necks and legs), but the bad conformation of the Schleich one is now more obvious.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Friesi10

And now the lovely Shetland. I was pretty surprised, that it's a mare. I would expect a gelding. But it's a mini mare running:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Shetty10

...and rearing:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Rearin10

She is really small, almost in SM size, but very detailed and well sculpted.
my Deborah McDermott's horses Shetla10

I was also impressed with Thoroughbred mare, but the paintwork was bad, so maybe later, if I find better one...

Thank you, Julie and Susanne :-)
The Shetty is really adorable. In the Czech republic they have only the chestnut variant, and I like it more than the silver dapple.

Beautiful new additions! I love seeing your new photos, they are always very nice.  Applause

Also, I am envious that you have CollectAs in your local shops! I hope someday the shops around me will carry CollectA so I can handpick them. Smile

Thank you, Jessica and Dum_my.
It's always fine to handpick figurines, actually the Shetty is from online store, but they delivered it to the toy-store where I picked the Friesian. They have even few small 2015 and 2016 novelties, mostly foals and dogs, and also the tahr. But I'm still waiting for adult horses from 2015 and 2016.

Very pleasant to watch your great pictures and read your observations. Friesian comparison pictures are really eloquent, they show clearly how differently horses are designed in Schleich and CollectA "studios". :)

Thank you, Roger. It's funny how comparison can change the way you look on a figure.

Yes, indeed !!! Very Happy

Imagine if they were mixed, and only the best from both + a quite new body shape Laughing

Hi, finally managed myself to adjust photo of two last horses, that came in August from MPV - the two 2016 novelties by CollectA: beautiful Camargue mare, and chunky Ardennes stallion.

The mare is really nice, I love her head and face expres​sion(though the head seems to me a bit bigger for the rest of body). I wanted her since I saw first pictures of the sculpt.

As for the stallion, at first I wanted him, cause I wanna have some CollectA draft horses and I like bay horses. Then I saw some in-hand photos and because of his painting I decided for not buying him. Later, I've changed my mind again, cause I visited horse show and fell in love with the colour of this noriker, so I bought the Ardennes stallion with idea of getting him repainted, as a roan colour is typical for the breed.

I will make walkaround of both figurines Wink

Those two are indeed among the ones I love most from Debor's hand cheers
A big congratulations flower

Your pictures are great, - and I agree that the roan colour suits the Ardennes horse very much Very Happy

In October, new CollectA horse trotted in to my collection:
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec10
The bay Thoroughbred mare, I bought her because I love trotting molds and I love bays, and in general, she is nice. And so is the Thoroughbred filly, so the mare will be a broodmare in future, I guess...
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec12
Not excited about the paintjob - quite disturbing airbrush lines, the mane and especially forelock look unfinished. But there is one special thing about paintwork of her head...
my Deborah McDermott's horses Collec11
Got it?



She has no facial markings! A factory flaw, and a possible rarity? (Maybe I could call her Rarity  Very Happy) I wonder if it is usual with this model, or do I really have a unique horse? scratch what about your Thorougbred mares, do they have stars and snips? Wink

She is lovely, AL cheers

We don't even have a picture of her in TAI, so I do not know if she is a rarity, - but she certainly doesn't have a blaze as shown in the booklet Shocked
Laughing Kosta, you can always find funny video he-he-he-whinnie-hm-hm ( Isn't that what ponies say ? ) lol!
