PostSubject: Indian rhinoceros by Maia & Borges!   Fri Jan 27, 2017 10:26 pm

That is my first purchase of 2017 and it will not enter my collection.
Among my divagations, I couldn't resist to take a look at the Science4You stand.
I got surprised! scratch Yes, the cooperation between Science4you and Maia & Borges continues and some old figures known from Schleich are being revived.
This time, the Indian rhinoceros, a figure that was never available in this century.
I don't have the old Schleich anymore to compare, it was sold recently, but the painting is different and less glossy.
It is marked S4Y/M&B, Made in Portugal.
Product number is 48386
There was also a elephant calf but I only could get this one at the moment.
I won't have the chance to investigate more soon but I'll share news as soon as possible.
I am not a special enthusiast of this mold, Safari and Papo have much better representatives. The M&B muskox is more interesting as a relaunch once the species is still misrepresented.
Though, I suspect I know someone who will love it. cat cat Wink

I'm a fan of Indian rhinoceros and this one looks great.
But thats right the papo and the Safari look much better.

WOW !!!! What a gorgeous, beautyful model bounce cheers
I always loved it.
Actually it is amazing that Schleich had an Indian rhino as the first one in the series already in 1989 Very Happy

Imagine finding a brand-new one of the most famous toy-rhinos ever, - and it looks like the paintwork is even nicer than the one M&B made for Schleich Very Happy

And he has a friend from M&B, - the musk ox !
They are so happy to speak Spanish Portugese together  Laughing

An interesting thing , in my opinion .
Here is the marking of the Musk ox, - very informative  study

But I am sure that many newer collectors will wonder what the marking on the rhino means Laughing

Another comparison .
I love both, but I sort of prefer the paintwork of M&B  Wink

Fantastic Susanne, it is the exact same figure poorly pictured in the first post. It has now some great pictures that give justice to it.
Oh, I am sure they're not speaking Spanish but Portuguese instead. They're made in Portugal and sold by a Portuguese company of scientific toys.
I think it is somewhat curious to figure out which molds will Maia & Borges use in their next releases. There's an elephant calf too but I have to find which other figures they are re-releasing. elephant Considering that Science4you is using mainly Mojö figures in their range, the muskox and Indian rhino are excellent complements to it once both species are not represented in Mojö range yet.
I am so glad that I am still able of finding something interesting for your collection! Very Happy

Yes. All the "Made in Portugal"-models were manufactured by M&B.

M&B has actually made Schleich with M&B-logo for ages, - the tropical fishes and other sea creatures Very Happy

I imagine that the moulds belong to Schleich, but M&B were allowed to use them Very Happy

I always liked the M&B Schleich models very well. Some of them are the best "Schleich" models I've ever seen.
