PostSubject: Schleich colour variations   Tue Jun 29, 2010 6:51 am

Hi all, I was at a Fred Meyer store over here (USA) and found they had a few Schleich figures 30% off. Decided to purchase a Rhinoceros. Of the 7 on the shelf one was darker than the rest. Most of them were a light grey. So I purchased the darker one. Is it normal for there to be such a colour difference? I also was looking at the white tigers and found one where the stripes were not on the inside of the legs like the others - because it is a little different does that make it special or not as valuable? I would be interested in a collectors input on these differences and how they would relate to value. Of course the real value is in liking what you buy and enjoying it, but it doesn't hurt to have it worth more too! :)
Oh, and yes my name is Sue - how do you-all do! :)

The rhino female has received a different colour to fit with the new male and baby.
It isn't worth more if it's darker.The lighter one is ''retired'',so rarer.
The tiger stripes are something common.

Many animals have different patterns depending on the country they are made in.
(China,Germany,Portugal)

Retired animals sometimes have at least 2 or 3 different styles,sometimes reaching 6 or 7.Those are extremely rare and only the best collectors manage to get all the variations! What a Face

I apologize in advance if what I ask next is just basic to others but I am a little confused. I thought that Schleich was German made, but hand painted in China. Is that just the newest figures or are they all made in China and hand painted in China by a German corporation? Are you saying each style of figure could have been made in one of three countries; Portugal, China or Germany? Or are you talking mainly about the retired figures? So when I turn my figure upside down and read Schleich and it says China was the whole thing made in China? Can you tell I'm a newbee :)

At the beggining,Schleich had few exporting routes and their figurines were handmade and handpainted in Germany.With time,they introduced molds to mass-produce their series.

The toys were only marked with ''Germany'' because that was the only country to produce them.No ''made in'' thingy.
The tags were thin,with the logo in a round bubble,at the very end.

As Schleich choose Portugal for the marine life scale series,the country became their second outpost.Elephants,deer,bears,rhinos and many more were also produced there.That's why the company adopted the ''made in'' style.
->made in Portugal
->made in Germany
Both details were written with large letters(very large).
Because the electronic price tracking wasn't in vogue,the toys received a colourful dot on their feet,for the sellers to know in which size-price category they fit.

In 2006,the company was 80% bought by the British company HG capital.
The main production spot moved to China,where people wanted small salaries and learnt quickly how things worked.The rest(20%) remained in Germany and Portugal.

Some figurines weren't retired in 2006.That's why they got different colour variants,besides the German-Portugal ones.They're bellies were marked whit tiny letters,the ''made in China'' inscription & also the word Germany(the first country to produce them)!

That was a good and decent explanation WH!
In these days, most of the figurines are made in China indeed.
When you order your figurines from a German retailer, most of them will have made in Germany under them, with a few exeptions.
And there are still figurines made in Portugal, like the grey donkey from last year, and the yak and tapir.
Between the different countries of production, there is always a difference in painting or colouration, sometimes more, sometimes less...

PostSubject: Sheep Variation and Others   Sat Nov 06, 2010 2:06 pm

I was taking my Schleich sheep out and noticed the ewes I had were different colours, I didn’t realise this before. The older model is the darker one; this is the first one I bought. I wonder why the changed the colour.

Hi HK,

have you checked the manufacturing country, there are some differences between the ones made in Germany, POrtugal or China.

Also from time to time the paintings vary.

Thanks Alejandro, although they are both made in China, I guess it's what you said last, just over the years they changed the colour. It's nice having variations!

I agree with ken, the lighter version looks better. I only have the darker version, and I don´t think I´ve ever seen the lighter version anywhere.

I think I have the darker version too.

I don't set out to collect variations in colour intensity but they seem to find me Laughing Yesterday I got the Ginger cat made in Germany and it's quite different from the china made one.

I love your flock of sheep :) Who is the one in the front and the one next to the first ewe ?

Thanks Anna and Rio, it's interesting that no one has seen this lighter version!

The sheep that you mentioned Rio, are the old Schleich Ram and Ewe, I don't know their item numbers, here is a better picture of them...

You'll have to post pictures of your German and China made ginger cat Rio. Very Happy
It would be understandable if that was the case with mine, but they are both made in china. scratch

Thanks for the information, Harriet :)

Looking at my ewe, I'd say she is either the light version or somewhere in between. My ewe is also Made in China.

(missing picture)

The darker one matches the current Ram better and also looks more like a Texel/Beltex sheep.

Yes, there are many variations on the older models, specially the sheep, pigs and goats, and even the older hair-pares in white.
So there will be always something to look out for i guess... Rolling Eyes

So, these sheep are my first variations. Very Happy I have a few more doubles of models, the Hanoverian Foal, Clydesdale Mare and latest Friesian cow; I’ll have a look at them to see if they are slightly different colours.

Yes, I have some of those.
One of my very good and dear friends saw some on ebay.
As he does not have PayPal I bought them for him.
But then he was SO unlucky shortly after.
His car broke down, his cat got ill an caused a huge bill to the vet. So he could not afford them after all.
I kept them, and am happy I did Very Happy

Thanks Susanne, yes it is amazing the variation in colour! I bought a second Shire foal because the first one was rubbed in places and another Clydesdale because I loved the model so much. But the rest were accidents, someone bought me a model I already had.

Poor stallion geek

Well, sex-operations are not that uncommon, maybe he wanted that all his life lol!

I love that old donkey ! Some of them have lipstick on !!!!!
Strange, it is not in Gascher`s book ...
As you all probably know it is the same, but smaller one that exists as a Classic. It was for sale on Ebay recently, but the price was far above my budget Sad

I'm glad I have the original version of the stallion, they are quite hard to get hold of now, I think.
I really like the old donkey as well. It isn't in the Gascher's book?! How strange. confused

That is so at many figurines.
Because in older times Schleich beginns a production run and after a time they are looking how they could saving time in the production.
And so they try to paint a lot with airbrush ore some paintings getting easyer.
Even so the accessories gets easyer.
Nowadays you could see some differents between made in China ore made in Germany

These variations are usual in Schleich figures, you will find some treads about it in this forum, Willy has a lot of figures with two or more color variations!
Anyway congratulations, this old hyena looks great and you have two sisters, not twins!Very Happy

The Schleich hyena was produced as item number 14139 from 1997 - 1999. In 2005 and 2006 Schleich sold the same hyena new, but as item number 14347. It was exactly the same model, even with the print 1996, but in changed colour.

This is seen with many of the dogs, - new model but same year printed, - a recent example is the lying dalmation.
