13894 American Shorthair Cat
First Impression: The anatomy is a bit crooked, but the colours are lovely. Yeah, I like her.
Second Opinion: The anatomy is iffy, but her colours give her some charm.
Verdict: A figure with pro's and cons. Overall charming and a good mix up of the stationary cats and the colours are very charming. But there are some big issues that prevent this model from really having that wow factor. I do like her.

13895 Rhodesian Ridgeback
First Impression: She is quite pretty and looks very alert. She is rather charming and I’ll likely fall for her once I see her in hand.
Second Opinion: She is indeed quite pretty, with some nice details. I like her, but she does not have that oomph to her.
Verdict: She is pretty, but not very special. Mostly well made, but she has a few flaws. I like her.

13896 English Cocker Spaniel
First Impression: What a cute fellow. I am very curious to see how big he is. He looks absolutely lovely!
Second Opinion: He is rather cute, but he looks a bit goofy, which takes away from his charm
Verdict: Not bad, but not as great as I anticipated. He is cute, but not cute enough to really convince me. I like him regardlessly.

13900 Turkey
First Impression: Whahaha, this lil dude looks so super funny. He’ll move in just for that reason.
Second Opinion: He looks so Donald Duck-y, but I am not at all put off by it!
Verdict: I am actually rather charmed with this figure. Yes he is rather toyish and looks like he is made by disney, but he has a certain je ne sais qua and I like him!

42500 Pen for Rabbit and Guinea Pigs
First Impression: We already know the lil bunbuns. I really want a good close up pic of the guinea pigs. They seem pretty neat, but I really wanted the spikey haired one’s.
Second Opinion: The guinea pigs are quite cute, not very special, but they turned out alright. On of the bunnies was a recolour, which I was happily surprised with
Verdict: I am pleased with the guinea pigs, they are cute and a nice addition to the story. But I am, to my own surprise much happier with the white baby bunny. Overall a very nice set

42501 Kitten Playpen
First Impression: The scratchpost looks neat. And look at that kitten with the raised paw. So cute!
Second Opinion:
Verdict:
42502 Vet Clinic
First Impression: This has a lot of nice details and atributes and I believe the Haffi foal has a new colour too. I might get this one.
Second Opinion:
Verdict:
42503 Vet visiting the farm
First Impression: Not bad, but not my thing. None of the animals have a new paintjob either.
Second Opinion:
Verdict:

Horseclub

13897 Black Forest Horse Stallion
First Impression: Holy Fak, what the henk happened to this poor animal? The base if surely recognisable. The colours make do, but that is all I can say for him.
Second Opinion: Nu-uh. No. The painting is clumsy, the white is too clean and the anatomy is horrendous. I only do like the sculpt of his mane. That is it.
Verdict: Oh no, oh gods no. Please, don't. Me no likey.

13898 Black Forest Horse Mare
First Impression: She ain’t half bad She might not live up to her predecessor's charm, but she looks more less mangled than her hubby and has quite a cute face.
Second Opinion: I actually am quite pleased with her. She is not perfect and has a few flaws, but I am not complaining.
Verdict: Her head is HUGE, and her paintjob is uneven, but she is very charming and rather cute. I quite like her.

13899 Black Forest Horse Foal
First Impression: Cute as a button!!!! His coat is babyfuzz and his face is very adorable.
Second Opinion: What a little cutie!!! One of my favs this year!
Verdict: He is scruffy and very sweet looking. I like him a lot. He does have some flaws and the paint job is of the same sloppiness as the stallion and mare, which is not at all the standart for this year, though...

13906 Friesian Mare
First Impression: What a beauty. She is grace and she is absolutely gorgeous. These wavey manes and tail are fabulous. She will be the first to move in.
Second Opinion: What a beauty indeed. She is easily my favourite and I really really love her. Shame she came in after a few of the other 2020 models xD
Verdict: She has a few flaws, like the braids in her feathering and the braid in her tail, but I am overall very pleased with her build and her details. She is my 2020 fav!

13907 Arabian Stallion
First Impression: N/A

Verdict: Eh, we already know this one, schleich, don't be lazy. The colour looks very nice though.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13908 Arabian Mare
First Impression: My feelings are mixed. The braids and here general awkwardness put me off. But she looks like she has a story to tell.
Second Opinion: I am actually kind of fond of her. She has a very characteristic look and she has a clear story to tell.
Verdict: She is far from a perfect model and has anatomical flaws, but somehow I am very pleased with her. She has a very clear story and a lot of charm. I really like her!

13909 Trakehner Gelding
First Impression: Lookie here, this is a neat one. A bit like CollectA isn’t he? He looks quite handsome and his action is very appealing.
Second Opinion: Very neat, very well sculpted. Reminds me a lot of the collecta haflinger mare. He is a very nice boy.
Verdict: Probably one of the better made models of this year. I really like him. Painting is good, sculpt is well made. Even the braid is not ugly. Very good.

13910 Knabstrupper Mare
First Impression: Is this Papo? She is not entirely unappealing, I like that she does not have the standard black man, but the rest of her is just so clumsy.
Second Opinion: She is actually really lovely. I like her colours and how gentle she looks. I like her a lot actually. She has a story and I will tell it.
Verdict: I like her a lot and I am very charmed with her.

13911 Akhal-Teke Stallion
First Impression: The first one I saw and I quite fell in love with him. He looks rather charming and I like how soft his colours are. And I am so weak for pink noses.
Second Opinion: Mr. Man is very lovely. He isn't as grand as some, but he is beautiful and I am quite fond of him.
Verdict: He is not at all breed comforming, but as a figure, he is lovely. I like.

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

42441 Hannah’s Westernset
First Impression: Hannah in a new look. Yay. The horse, not so much. Her colours are very flat and I really am not into this mold.
Second Opinion: The colours are very flat and the mold is not very special. I am not adverse to the combo, though and of course she has a spot on the shelf.
Verdict: An okay figure, but that is the extend of it.

42443 Mia’s Aerobatics Set
First Impression: I think I quite like the two humans in their new outfits. I am very unsure about the horse. Not quite the charmer, but the colour could work.
Second Opinion:
Verdict:

Verdict: A happy lil cutie. I love him!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14836 Orka Calf

Verdict: Cute and a good story telling device. I do like him.

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

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14838 Snow Leopard
First Impression: Mixed feelings. I like the colours and the face, but the pose is so static and the feet are plain old weird.
Second Opinion: Anatomically not very smooth, but he got that pouch and the colours are well done.
Verdict:  50/50. I like the species and some details are well done, where other things are just straight up clumsy. I do like him tho.

42475 Big Rescue Truck
First Impression: Not a bad set. It has some nice details. Not my thing, but not bad.
Second Opinion:
Verdict:

42476 Rescue Helicoper

Bayala

70590 Flower Pegasus
First Impression:I have very mixed feelings on her. Her general look is so intricate and fabulous. But those wings look like chewed up plaques of gum. They would have done with another colour. She will move in tho.
Second Opinion: She has a lot of very interesting details that could have been done so lazily. This could have been a strong and fabulous model, but instead she looks unfinished. Yes, I like her, but she sure leaves room for improvement
Verdict: Nice, but could have been done better.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
70591 Flower Unicorn Foal
First Impression: Looks more what Papo to me. But I really like it. The colours works and it looks like a personable young animal with a neat tale.
Second Opinion: She is really sweet looking and quite well made. She does remind a little bit of Papo, but everything about her comes well together.
Verdict: Very nice, I like her a lot!

70592 Flower Dragon and young
First Impression: Overtly kiddy and comicy. They barely pass for genuine Dragons. Meh!
Second Opinion: Very kiddy and toyish. But they are fun looking and I still fell for them.
Verdict: Meh, but okay meh.
