Dear friends! I know some of you collect many brands! I also have figures from different brands, mainly foxes! Trying to find the fox from Miniland, a Spanish brand, I've found, from a friend, this wolf! As I don't remember anybody talking about Miniland before I thought it was interesting to share it with you! Very Happy

I never heard about that brand, great to learn about it Very Happy

It is beautyfully sculptured, that wolf, I like the sort of floating movement in the way it stands. I can almost hear it howl and see it move forward doing so ! I love you
Do they make many different animals ? do they have a homepage ?

Congratulations with your new great figure cheers

Thanks friends!!! In fact the figure is not mine, I've found it from a known person and thought it was interesting to show you, anyway I can always change it for another wolf, she doesn't mind! :)
The quality of the brand is lower than the main brands anyway this wolf is nice enough!
I don't know if the brand still exists, I tried to contact them without success!
They have farm animals with some horses included, forest animals, wild life, marine animals, insects and prehistoric figures!

I am trying also to find that figure from Miniland... sorry is a very small picture!

I never heard about this brand either! Rolling Eyes

The position of the wolf is not bad, but you can see, that the quality is not very high... Laughing
It reminds me of a model between Hong Kong and China quality...
That is because the models produced in Hong Kong, were similar in quality as the originals in the beginning, and when the Hong Kong productions went, and China took over, the moulds and quality went down very fast... Shocked
But this model is somewhere in between, not bad at all ,but not very good either, at least in the final touches... Wink

Absolutly correct! There's no comparison in quality, mainly final touch between this figure and Papo or Mojo (f.i.)! Anyway this wolf is much better than the Nayab. I think I will find a tiger and big cats are always very bad in cheaper brands. I think it was from a period when Portugal was full of Spanish shops with everything at the same price (0,75€) in current money. Suddenly these shops desapeared and now Portugal is full of Chinese shops with even cheaper animal figures but without any quality! Sad
This brand have a catalogue and a organised range...
I honestly haven't find it in your collection, Willy but I hoped it was a copy from any other brand of your knowledge. ...but, if it is something different, better, I'll make everything to find the fox! cat

Thanks Sylvia, they are not in fact additions, I've found it from a person and brought to this forum only to show to the members because this is an unknown brand! But I saw in the web that it is a Spanish brand and there are a lot of shops selling it in your country! Is it also unknown for you Sylvia??? Suspect Idea :)

I saw this other tread in which you metioned this new brand before, and there are a lot of direct copies of the known brands, like Schleich, Papo and AAA. Shocked
