Ahhh, I just had to check Gascher's : The one in the back is the old, white shark from 96 - 05, and the one in front is a copy ( ? ) ...with much better paintwork Very Happy

Is the light one marked Schleich and/or year ? Could it be a prototype ? bounce

Fantastic catch !!! Congratulations cheers Applause

PostSubject: More Schleich copycats?    Fri Nov 04, 2016 1:57 am

Hello everyone! I know I don't post on here much but I was searching today on a website called [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I found some retired CollectA cheers but I also found these sets:

They appear to be Schleich copies and the website states they are manufactured by "BW & H" and come from a seller in the UK. Does anyone know about this brand? Or what these sets are? Thank you all very much.

PostSubject: Schleich is being copied!   Tue Jul 11, 2017 6:50 pm

Few weeks ago I found some schleich copies in Alibaba (also called Aliexpress in Spain) Chinese website. Although I know they are copies I was very curious about how they are. So I bought one. I chose the white horse of 42190 jumping set. The model only includes the horse (no rider or saddle) but I don't care.

In only 10 days, a parcel arrived at home...

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

Well. The model is good, maybe the horse's body is too smooth, p.e., there isn't any mark of fur or muscles. Also the plastic is tough. I think the model is the same as Schleich uses - but without the paint.

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

And there is the trouble: the paint is horrible! As you can see, jumping protectors are wrong painted. Also the ear bonnets are awful. They didn't remove the horsehair and just painted on it.

Nothing written... no company, no year... no place where was made...

After 5 or 10 minutes I discovered that the model isn't the same as 42190 jumping horse. The legs have different position... but the model was still similar to me... it's the same model as 13616 Pinto stallion!

But an interesting topic, and great, illustrative photos cheers

Thankyou very much for sharing Applause

Thanks! All the copies I found have small changes in painting and that gives them a special interest for collectors!

I am no fan of buying copies, as they can literally destroy a company. (Play Visions!)
Why would you buy a cheap copy, when you can buy the real deal?

I understand that from a collectors view, copies can be interesting!
Like the wolves shown by Fallon for example. But I prefer the original model :3

"Animal Paradise" is the tag that came with all the Schleich and Papo wolf copies I have too. I only bought mine for comparison photos of them against the name brand figures they were copied from. While I solely did the walkarounds to point out quality issues, some are still interested in the models themselves due to the interesting (and occasionally good) paint job.

I will have to agree here that the paint job is particularly bad on this horse and its a shame these copies are popping up all over the internet as well as in stores.

But something a lot of people don't look at is the fact that all major brands have most of their models manufactured in China. (Which is where all these "Animal Paradise" copies are coming from.) Therefore it is probably fairly easy for any name brand mold or any name brand figure to get stolen/ reused.

As much as many collectors are against these copies, sometimes it's the fault of major brands having their figures manufactured in China in the first place. All brands took that risk and some of those risks came about in the form of copies. Knowing China's strong manufacturing reputation, I expected issues like this to arise sooner or later.
