I like very much the SCHLEICH kudu and Cape buffalo, I made walkaround about them for this reason. I'm not very addicted to SCHLEICH but those models are IMHO some of their best, at last SCHLEICH made not chubby, not too big head models and I appreciate a lot Sad(o)): It is the same for the new gorilla family Wink
Nevertheless, PAPO kudu (despite the twin horns), PAPO Cape buffalo(despite odd teeth), PAPO gorilla have a lot of personality and it is the PAPO strength.
On the other hand, SCHLEICH new elephants have a lot of details, an excellent finish and more personnality than average SCHLEICH but they have chubby heads and are too odd for me. PAPO elephants are more accurate, especially the body proportions, but are less detailed and have weaker personalities.
Indeed it is good to have different brands, especially since so many different collectors are existing Laughing

Phil, my apologies. It sounds like I did misunderstand the context of the remarks I read. My comments were out of place. It was certainly not my intention to stir things up and I very much hope that we can all put it to the side and move forward in a friendly way. I am very sorry for mischaracterizing the situation.

Scott, absolutely no need to offer any apology. You're a good egg. My apologies if anyone was annoyed by any of this.

I only collect horses, and in my opinion, Schleich is better. I completely agree with Susanne Papo horses have more personality, but I like to collect realistic horses. Papo is getting better and better each year but... those muzzles are... ugly. Sorry, Susanne, but the muzzles of Papo horses are the most reason why I don´t like them xD

However, Schleich is becoming a cute-horse maker, so I don´t know if I will continue thinking the same in a while.

I really love the older generations of Schleich horses. My favorite generation is the set that includes the Thoroughbred (13273), the retired Arabian Stallion (13248), the retired Quarter Horse, and the Chestnut Mare (13253). But I also really liked the newer Quarter Horse (13650) and the Andalusian Stallion (13607), which I think of as part of the same generation. The recent Schleich horses have, for me as well, been really disappointing. I've collected none of them except the Haflinger Foal.

I have to admit though, I really like how different the various brands of horses are. Horse figures are often very stylized and different companies seem to develop (whether intentionally or not) different styles. It's interesting.

T4, your list is very interesting, it doesn't matter if I agree or not, what is interesting is your effort to make choices in an unpartial way. I am sure that every single collector of this forum would make a different list as long as the choices were the best figures and not just the favorite brands. Very Happy

@ High Tyto Mira: Killing someone, even a Schleich addict , is not really a PAPO lover tradition. Laughing
And I can't remember any PAPO lover here Suspect I know several Animal toy collectors and some "SCHLEICH only" collectors... Wink

@ Everyone else: Ladies and gentlemen, this topic is a debate... It began nearly two years ago and it would be good to read it before posting. A debate means posting arguments, ideas and explanations. It is not a battlefield and you don't need to choose a side but only to debate !

@ Alvaro: So you think SCHLEICH are realistic. All the SCHLEICH ? Or which ones ? Could you explain why you think so ?

It was Papo that drew me into collecting 'new' animal figures. When I first saw their lioness with cub I was immediately hooked! Very Happy

At the same time as buying this figure I bought Papo's male white tiger, puma and leopard. An instant collection! Laughing

Recently added two of Papo's meerkat poses. Must get the third one!

I really like Schleich's female husky but find most of Schleich's offerings too toy like with cute and cuddly features. But I understand that collectors like the "Schleich" look.

One last thing in Papo's favour is their poses. In some ways they are as good as the classic poses from Elastolin and Lineol but MUCH cheaper. Laughing

I'm a big fan of both Papo and Schleich.

Sure, I do have a lot more Schleich figures in my collection than Papo ones - but that's easily explained because I've been collecting figures for over two decades, well before Papo figures were available. And another reason is that in its infancy, Papo didn't make very nice figures, plus Papo figures are not easy to find in my area. That explains why I have a lot more Schleichs than Papos.

But now that the quality of Papo figures has improved, I've been collecting their new figures more regularly.

Basically, my personal collector's creed is that as long as a figure is realistic and that I like it, and that it is of compatible size with the others I already have, I'll buy it, no matter the brand.

I also love Safari figures, for instance, but I have only a few because, again, they're impossible to find here and shipping costs/customs taxes if ordering them from abroad are a pain in the neck.

I agree Cool

But talking about Papo towards Schleich... According to my impression so far, Papo really have some strong points, where they beat Schleich, like their big cats with wonderful sculpts and realistic looks, where others of their animals can seem to mix in sculpting quality.
Schleich have like a very consistent quality. You kind of know what you get, and you can count on Schleich.... Well, maybe until now 2013 with some quality reduction of the Chinese models pale

I'm afraid... Yes What a Face tongue SCHLEICH is the only brand with supporters, or addicted, who write SCHLEICH is better and more realistic because SCHLEICH is better an more realistic. Maybe I'm wrong but I can't find such a worship for the other brands. I guess I have no slip problems since I don't support any of these brands. And I still think a cat is cat and a dog is a dog, even if a dog is not superior to a cat Laughing
Now, there is not "only" SCHLEICH addicts, there is also SCHLEICH collectors Wink and I can see the difference, at least I hope Laughing

Well I am a schleich collecter and think it is supreme to all others, I once bought the papo lion but returned it and switched it with an schleich elephant the old asian male. I have to admit the fantasie creatures of papo are awesome made up but the quality of papo isn't that great in my eyes and schleich is
If you think otherwise that is okay

I like both brands, I couldn't really pick one. I like CollectA and Safari LTD too,some are better than others with all four brands.

Mojo i'm kinda ehhh about. I used to think Schleich was the best brand but now a days Papo and CollectA surpass them with some animals/details. It really depends on what model/animal it is.

I like the current style of Schleich's Wildcats because they are somewhat realistic,but also cutesy.

I prefer Papo, the most figures looks alive, the only thing that I don't like is the paintjob, it looks everytime too different of the catalogue pictures (negative).
Schleich looks not really realistic and I don't like the most of the new figures...
Papo win this battle, for me
