Thank you, Peter, for the information. That is what I thought it probably was.

Schleich is really trying to be at the top of sales even though their line-up is horrible! Shocked Rolling Eyes

Yeah, it looks a bit desperate, doesn`t it ?
Some of the guys in their marketing/sales departments are being kicked in their behinds, poor guys Neutral

I must admit that I get a bit cross now. It is getting almost hopeless for those who don`t live in the countries where they are sold No

In this case I don`t care, however, as I don`t collect elves Wink

For what it's worth, Susanne, collectors here in the USA fully understand the frustrations you've expressed about feeling "shut out" of the market. There are huge barriers for us with respect to collecting a German product which is mainly available via German eBay sellers who, by and large, only accept wire transfer payments. So, you're not alone in feeling miserable - we Yanks feel that way a lot of the time... Sad Sad Sad

I get 99% of my figures on-line. Except for some Safari Toobs and a few odds and ends, i don't think i've ever seen anything other than Schleich in a store here. ... but i don't go in stores much, so maybe that doesn't mean anything...? scratch

Wink Elves, Jedi, and Vulcans can be tiresome. The only thing more annoying than self-satisfied elves is vampires. Especially young, well-coifed vampires who brood about their love life. tongue

Last year when they introduced Kishay, I joked about how Schleich is going Eragon. Now I seriously think they are!

I don't really have an opinion one way or the other about their producing elfs and whatnot; the part that bothers me is that, like every other toymaker it seems, they are assigning names and characters to the toys. I think it's better for toys to be blank slates to allow children to use their own imagination to create their own worlds.
Instead of here's "Prince So-and-So" and his companion panther "Torben", who are aligned with "King Who-zee" and his alligator "Rogerbert" fighting against "Queen Whatchamacallit" and her Siamese cat "Susanne" who like making macrame plant hangers, they ought to be here's a guy and a panther, and another guy and an alligator, and a woman and a cat. Make the kids come up with their own stories. Exercise those imaginations!
Toys that come with pre invented characters are limiting, the way coloring books that teach children to 'stay in the lines' are. i think children should be encouraged to scribble all over the paper if that's what their artistry is.
