A while ago I bought some shepherd-dogs to look after the sheep.

For once I was not 100 % pleased with my new Papo-figueres. They are not awful, but hmmmm scratch

The German shepdog is ok. The moulding is great but the painting is far from the nice, saturated dog colour of the catalogue Rolling Eyes

The collie is beautyful, but OMG! I think he is blind Shocked

The Border collie, - here the paintwork is actually slobby. Look how paint has run down his neck Crying or Very sad
And he has got teeth on his tongue affraid
That kind of painwork does not belong in a Papo-figuere Evil or Very Mad

Well, Papo CAN make nice dog figueres. I also got the basset hound, - and isn`t he just lovely ? Very Happy Very Happy

If yes, then please will you show them here Very Happy Very Happy

What a shame the painting's so sloppy - still, the collie's eyes at least look like a quick fix. The actual sculpting's ok though?

Yes, I think the sculpting is really nice .
And you are right, a dot of black paint on the eyes of the collie could make it look better scratch

It ought not to be neccesary, though, don`t you think ? Suspect

Of course, but expecting good paintjobs from Papo is a bit like expecting a good theropod from Schleich... Rolling Eyes

Oh, unlucky Susanne! I already learned to love my Papo rhino chocolat eater but two of those are not in an acceptable condition, I think! Sad
I love the last dog, it is very cute and funny! Papo has very nice painting layouts but sometimes really bad paintjobs! Sad
Have you already talked with who sold it?

That rough collie is just like the Lassie dog - I used to have a real one of those when I was little I love you I love you
Shame about the paintwork on some of them, but still congratulations Susanne - the Basset hound is gorgeous cheers cheers

Thankyou Andreas and Harriet and Roger and Ken flower sunny

Roger, no I did not speak to the seller about it...I just HATE to complain. It makes me feel terrible geek
Stupid of me, I know it. But I can`t help it scratch Laughing Laughing

Great photoes, Ken. I can se your German shepdog is almost like mine, but the others are just fine.
Well, nothing WRONG with the German Shepherd dog, only it looks so much nicer in the catalogue Rolling Eyes
Your Lassie-collie looks perfect, and so does the Border collie. And the basset is SO lovely !
Thankyou for the photoes. flower

Hmmm...so they CAN make nice painwork, ....Sumo perhaps you can still expect a good theropod from Schleich Shocked Laughing Laughing Laughing

Ah, here in Portugal almost everybody calls Lassie to these dogs! It is very popular here, maybe the same in other countries! :)
Susanne, if you don't feel confortable complaining it is your choice and I understanding, I also don't like to complain when there's no reason to do it! But... Wink
Sumo, Schleich dinos are only in the range because they are important in terms of market, many childen love them, they are hard to make scientifically accurate, so the brand keep some dinos but is not interested in wasting many time and money with them! :)

I still congrat you to those new additions Susanne, there always will be some flaws in models, when it is not the mould, then it can be the painting.... Laughing
I will have the German shepherd and collie to very soon.
The basset is a nice personality! Very Happy

I think, it lasted about 25-30 years, before people here started to call the Scottish roughhair collie what it really was, they all called them a "Lassie dog" to... Laughing

PostSubject: Some Papo Dogs came in for august 2011 for me...   Some dogs from Papo EmptyMon 29 Aug 2011 - 2:13

I found a nice lot of Papo dogs in the last weeks, and i had them in last week...
One is a Schleich dog, which i had already, but he is a slight variation, s he is made in China to, but earlier as mine, because the writing underneath is different, the one i had had the latest text with Schäbisch Gmund under it, the one that came in not, and is slightly differently painted to.

16246 Schleich Dalmation males, the one on the left is the latest addition.

But here are 3 wonderful Papo dogs:

Yes, Papo makes great dogs to indeed, and the collie is really looking good, but the English setter and greyhound are very nice to! Very Happy
