PostSubject: Mystery Standing 'Schleich' Meerkat?   Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:30 pm

Recently was on eBay casually browsing listings when I came across one advertising the Schleich Meerkat family.

I don't have the pups but I do have the two adult meerkats...so I am very familiar with what they look like.

Here are mine:

Now take a look at the standing Meerkat being advertised as the official "Schleich" 14368 standing meerkat in this listing:

I know I am not losing my mind. That pose is completely different from the official 14368 Schleich Standing meerkat. (Although the bottom half and back view of the figure look relatively the same.)

I also notice no Schleich tag or text is present on this figure. I don't recognize it as belonging to another name brand so is this what I think it is? A slightly altered counterfeit version of the official Schleich meerkat?

The seller is getting $50 per set he sells with this mystery meerkat (And people ARE buying these sets) which I think is horribly wrong given the one is clearly not the official 14368 Meerkat.

I kind of want to report the listing as false advertisement as a result since he is selling a counterfeit figure as the 'Schleich' meerkat.

But I wanted to gather opinions before I do this. If it is from another name brand, please let me know!

Even the material seems different, I guess you are right, it is a fake.

Maybe a weird combo between the Schleich and Papo meerkat?
Mystery is everywhere on the Internet. But I think this one is a fake. Poor people who pay $50 if it is a fake! Sad

That's all very strange. I also don't recognize that meerkat and, if it is a fake, what seems to be, it is surely not decent from this seller. Sad
Where are the Schleich ladies that chased our forum because we have just shared some official pictures showing their new products? I am sure they surely know if it is Schleich or not. Evil or Very Mad

It reminds me of the Brunnen meerkat adult, but again, it's slightly different. It looks pretty neat, even if it's a fake! But $50?!? That's a scam!!!! Evil or Very Mad

I'm afraid that they're only interested in getting 2018 pictures off the internet silent
