Papo makes som wonderful models, I couldn`t agree more Very Happy
And the kudu and Gnus are among the best ones !

The new kudu from Schleich is better, but alas, look at the paintwork Crying or Very sad

About the gnus, - what I love about Papo is that their models have personality, - they are not just standing there Rolling Eyes
But the new Schleich gnu and calf is not bad, IMHO scratch
Ohhhhh, what a beautyful white tailed gnu in the background cheers

the new schleich kudu,with the right paintwork, is better than the papo kudu...in my opinion....well at least the schleich kudu is a more acurate depiction of a real kudu.

You are right, horns shape, body proportion are more accurate on the new SCHLEICH. But again the PAPO have much more personnality ! Put them together in a batch of figuine and you will see the PAPO first... And it's not a matter of size Laughing

But I find Schleich Kudu 2011 is more appearing to me than Papo.

I gave my opinion about the 2 kudus before, the Schleich is a defensive figure but very accurate, more than the Papo! Altough, when the Papo arrived it was a big party in my jungle and everybody got neutral when the Schleich arrived! :) Schleich wins in sculpting and painting, Papo wins in pose, expression and motion! Laughing I have both! Wink

Laughing Laughing

Papo only started their animal ranges in 2004.
The first years Schleich war far better, but now.... Rolling Eyes

Let`s look at some examples from their present ranges :

- Dinoes : Papo
- Dogs : Papo
- Horses : Papo
- Cattle : Schleich
- Cats : Schleich
- Birds : Schleic
- Wild cats : Papo
- Northern wild animals Papo
- Elefants, rhino, hippo : Papo
- Sea animals, Schleich doesn`t have them any more..

To me it looks like Schleich is going for the elves, and the animals are very much for children.

Other suggestions ? scratch

Ahhh, yes, Roger, you are right !!!!

The Papo zebras are horrible and the Schleich zebras are beautyful Very Happy

About ostriches, I LOVE the dancing Schleich ostrich, even if his head is too large, - and even if his "wife" is black geek Wink

I think I like old red deer by Scheich and also current red deer by Papo What a Face What is wrong with them? Shocked Suspect Wink

It's indeed hard to choose, some animals are better in schleich some in papo Very Happy
Wild cats in general are better in Papo except the Jaguar cat
Elephants , for me not very exciting from any of these brands Suspect Elephant calves by schleich are quite lovely. And adult Asian elephant by Papo elephant Maybe all too small scale, would prefer 1:20
zebras are very easy to choose, obviously better are schleich,
from farm animals I like Papo goats more and schleich sheep more Very Happy Cats I prefer from other brands I think. Rabbits are all excellent CUTE albino Wink
Cape buffalo is indeed nicer in Papo

Well, more or less my opinion is similar to Roger's Suspect alien Very Happy But I really don't lke Papo moose and I do like Schleich ostrich newest version Shocked

I would say Schleich for farm animals and humans, Papo for wild animals. Neither for dinosaurs!

Both Schleich and Papo have gone downhill in recent years, IMHO... Crying or Very sad

It's difficult choice and supposed it depend on personal choice and taste too!

I Love
Big Cats or wild cat - Papo (except lynx)
dog - Schleich & Papo
Dinos-Papo
Meerat - Schleich & Papo
Sea life - Schleich & Papo
Zebra - Schleich
African elephant - Papo
Asian elephant - none
Cape buffalo - Schleich

Perhaps more to think....

I have to agree "schleich61" mentioned this
  1. Both Schleich and Papo have gone downhill in recent years

Papo by far. I only have one Schleich - their most recent okapi. Most of what I have seen by them looks really 'derpy'. Keep in mind though, that I'm not familiar with their past (retired/old models) and I do not pay any attention to domestic or livestock breeds when it comes to collecting.

I understand you, then.
Their domestic animals are best, - and the retired ones had a charm that they completely lack now. Crying or Very sad

Well, about papo, - you must mean the VERY recent years, because if you compare to the first ones, even if the first animal models were ever so charming, they surely went uphill when it comes to accuracy Laughing

Well, it's easy to mix "ups & downs" with "downhill", I would wait a year or two to say definitely if it's downhill... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
