It is hard to say what brand, - to me it is more or less what I can get hold on, and what I can afford :

New brands
Schleich, - because I already have so many of them ;-)
Bully(land) - especially the birds, dogs, cats and dinoes
Papo, Wild animals are enormously charming Very Happy , - horses Crying or Very sad
Safari, many rare species.
CollectA - their birds are fantastic !!! And they have some nice dogs also.
AAA - Many are very unusual, - and also because they are hard to find here Laughing
The Japanese, - they are wonderful, but the shipping costs are impossible No

The old brands :
Reisler
Starlux
Britains

Arrrh, - I like them all bounce bounce bounce cheers

Thank you Susanne!! Yes its right with the shipping costs for the japanese animals, and its difficult to find. And a lot of japanese sellers gives only a very small rabatt.But if you hold in your hands and see with your own eyes this phantastic work. And any old Schleich animals are also very expensiv.

Schleich - maybe they are not 100% correct but I like them very much. It was first brand of this kind I ever heard of and thanks to it I discovered others :)
Papo - very nice wild animals, especially lions and tigers (mewants!)
Bullyland - some nice wild animals (and human figurines, but that's another topic Wink )
Collecta - the new models are fantastic, especially horses by Deborah McDermott ( I love you )
Safari Ltd. - again, especially wild animals.

I also adore Japanese brands, but their shipping costs would definitely kill my small funds.

I don't know other brands too well but I often spot some nice models from them.

I'm not interested in knights and soldiers, so I don't know any particular brand, even Polish ones. But I know they are made in my country too :)

That could be easily solutioned Razz




My favourite brands are Schleich, Breyer and Safari. You know I only collect horses, and my personal opinion is that those brands have the better models. In addition Schleich are the ones I can get easily, because most Safari models are not sold in my city, and I have to buy Breyers when I travel xD Soooo Schleich is my favourite one hehe

For that reason Schleich would have to be my favourite too, simply becasue it is the only brand that i have been able to find in any shops anywhere in Australia that i have been.

but thanks to this forum, a lot of online places have come to my awareness, so i'd have to say i am begining to really look forwards to owning some Papo big cats Very Happy

Willy and Kiki, I like the way you did it! :)
Since Mojo Fun is very new and its range unknown, here goes my pre-Mojo selection:

Modern brands:
Big scale

1. Papo
2. Safari
3. CollectA

From others I don't have any opinion because I only have few figures of some vintage brands.
Seeing pictures I think Starlux and Lineol are reeally great! ...but zero in my collection! Laughing

I see a lot pics the collections in this forum or on the homepages. And so i ask me, which brands are important, and which not. An example. I dont see VEB Plaho by our admin and also (i believe) in the collection of kiki. cyclops
I know, any of us are specialized of one or more brands.

Which animals and brands are in our collection, which animals / brands are not "allowed"? scratch

I only collect species , but of all brands. I dont need then many /all figurines of this species. I dont like puzzles ala kaiyodo and i like a small scale and the animals very detailed. I love you

I have a few rules, firstly I don't collect everything only things that I like from brands.
I only collect horses from Schleich and now CollectA
Wildlife from all of the modern brands, but only big cats from Papo and I only collect Papo dinosaurs as well.
I love a lot of the models from brands like Lineol, Starlux, Britains and so on, but I have to stop somewhere, I can't collect eveything I like. Rolling Eyes
I would make an exception for a model from Lineol Laughing but I wouldn't seriously collect them, I couldn't rather! Laughing

I would love to collect Kaiyodo but they are really hard to come by. Sad

I collect a lot Embarassed

Reisler : I have many, most are from my childhood.

Schleich : I collect all the "real" Schleich, only not the dinoes.
But for many years it has been hard to find things I don`t have.

Bullyland : All animals and the people belonging to those.
I like especially their prehistoric figueres, dogs and birds. And insects. And sea animals. And...

VEB Plaho: I have many of those, but still need some of the very rare and expensive ones.

Papo, - if I were rich, I would love to have them ALL cheers
So far I have concentrated on the nicest ones and the retired ones.

Safari : Only the rare (rare as figueres) species. And ones I really like. I would love to get the Doedicurus and the Arsinoitherium Wink

AAA/ELC : Figueres I like, - or if they are VERY cheap and nice drunken

McDonalds, - all I can find Very Happy

Yowies, whichever I can get hold of. I like the UK-yowies best.

Starlux/clairet : this brand is new for me. If it was not a bad thing to do, I would rob a bank and get a lot of those Laughing

Other brands, - I love to get brands I have not seen before.

In general I like to collect donkeys, foxes, monkeys, birds, otters and other wood animals.

So I have 3 rooms stacked with boxes of figueres with bouble plast between them, - but I usually know exactly where each and every one is - hmmm, usually Rolling Eyes Laughing

My collection is a living thing, not only a growing one, some models stay one month, one year and some "forever"

What I absolutely don't collect is non toys models (like Country artists by example) except models made by friends of the forum Wink .

I'm looking at the models themselves rather than the brand, i.e. I'm not going to collect all possible models by a certain brand. Nevertheless, I've made some restrictions brand-wise :)

Schleich - I'm interested mostly wildlife, still hesitating about farm animals and dogs. I'm not collecting their horses anymore.

Collecta - definitely horses from Deborah McDermott collection, also some wildlife, their birds are amazing Very Happy

Safari Ltd - wildlife (including some sealife models), and both series of horses (Blue Ribbon and Winner's Circle). I love the fact that they have some species unavailable by other major brands :)

Bullyland - I'm interested in their human models, especially those related with horses. I bought their caribou/reindeer which I really like, but no other animal caught my attention.

Papo - I'm definitely going to buy their tigers and lions, and orca too, we'll see with the rest of their wildlife.

other brands - only the models which I would like, and as long as I'd be able to buy it :) And the price should be reasonable Laughing

Any Safari Wildlife/forest replicas, as well any any rare wild mammal/bird made by Papo or Schleich. I also enjoy collecting Play Visions and K&M Nature Tubes. But my favorite is Safari Ltd, and that will never change! Cool

Thank you, i see in your collection, clairet and blancherie freres are really interesting brands, also for me.

And sorry, but i cant remember at VEB Plaho in your collection.

I think, we collect almost the same. :) :) :)

My collecting mandate is to collect ALL Schleich animal and animal-related lines. I also now collect Starlux prehistorics and WWF figurines, along with selected Starlux animal figurines.

However, I will collect ANY figurine of any kind that I really like... Wink I really like the Bullyland prehistorics and Colorata animal figurines, but I am not collecting them systematically...

I collect mostly horses, cattle, and donkeys from all brands. My wildlife collection is growing and I'm liking Papo the most there. :)

Thank you, i see in your collection, clairet and blancherie freres are really interesting brands, also for me.

And sorry, but i cant remember at VEB Plaho in your collection.

I think, we collect almost the same. :) :) :)

It seems you are right Wink

About VEB PLAHO, you can see the anteater, bison, squirell, moose cow (I still need the bull), orangutans and gibbons. I sold the hippo a few years ago and now it miss a lot.
I also add the camels on my collection but I want to repaint them before.

I would love the prehistoric ones too but they are not cheap and my want list is very very long....

i might be very fussy but i only collect schleich and maybe a few papo here and there Laughing

and i also don't like collecting animals that are not standing properly or at all, or animals that have bits of ground stuck too them

example 1 not standing: lion cub laying or lion cub playing. Suspect
Example 2 stuck to ground: (very many examples) badger cubs, grey geese, 2010 ostrich male etc. Wink

We are old, and have never stopped collecting, so we have animals from the makers of our childhood - metal and plastic Britains, Timpo, etc. - all the way up to the modern plastics, not to mention composition animals by at least thirteen different makers.

The backbone of the collection is the Ark. We try to get male/female pairs with young in more-or-less correct scale to one another.
This scale must match composition animals by Haueer/Pfeiffer/Lineol etc. Any brand of animal which fits in can be used. (It is not uncommon to have a composition male with a home-made female and plastic young.)

Thanks to the Internet, we can now see what animals are available World-wide ... but getting our hands on them is another matter!

I collect mainly species, the name of the brand is absolutly irrelevant, sometimes when I have more than 1 figure from the same species I use it to trade or as a gift, except those I also receive as a gift! I'm also a curious about brands and collect all foxes!
What I'm still not collecting, even I have some figures: farm animals, people, horses, dinos, sea life, insects, etc.
I concentrate mainly in mammals and birds and some reptiles, of course! :)
Ah, sea life is in my future plans, mainly seals and related.

yikes! that's quite a mandate! I admire anyone with the drive to keep at a "complete" collection.
How close are you to reaching the nirvana point of having all the prior releases and only needing to get new releases as they come out?

I had the mandate to collect all Breyer horses and animals, until I got so frustrated trying to keep up with just the special runs that kept popping up, much less trying to find the really rare, extremely expensive stuff. Then they released a model that was so poorly sculpted it had a thumbprint in it and I said, I'm done.

I totally understand. I don't have a problem with figures that are lying down, or on bases, but I don't collect "scenes" like Border Fine Arts makes, or with figures other than sheep. Many ceramic or china sheep figures have shepherds, or dogs, or scenery, but I don't like those. I mean, I might like them, but I don't want them. Off the top of my head, I can only think of one piece that has scenery (a BFA i found that was too cheap to pass up).

I collect all the Schleich horses (wich have NO tack on them, so no Bayala, no western or similar; neither the fantasy ones, excepting 2 unicorns, the white old one and one on the Bayala series which have no tack on him), and some Schleich animals I like, like some zebras, antelopes and so on. But only few. ABout other brands, recently I discovered I have some AAA wild animals xD But now I only buy the horses I like: some Safari, some Papo, some Collecta, some Bullyland... And some Breyer.

I collect mostly schleich and papo animal figures. After seeing different brands on here I am open on collecting animals from these brands! My collection focuses on wild animals but I do collect a few Schleich horses!

I started collecting Reisler in 1957.
Perhaps 15 years later I found some Britains in a shop.
And many years later I saw Schleich in a store for the first time, and got some cats, horses, deer, - a moose I think ? ... then I found some Bullylands on an auction.

For a period I collected Mattel-animals ( unfortunately they often come with a Barbie Shocked ),

Then I discovered Ebay affraid

On Ebay you can get EVERYTHING, so my collection grew with all kinds of models, mostly Schleich and Bullyland and a few Papo and Safaris.

AND then I joined this forum, and I saw all the fantastic pictures of the other brands...uhh, drunken

I´d say thay I collect about everything from Bullyland and Schleich.
I have most farm animals from Papo, - and a lot of horses, mainly the retired ones.
From Safari, AAA, CollectA and other brands I "only" collect the ones I can`t resist. Unfortunately that is SO many Embarassed Laughing
