Anyway here goes some suggestions, more than predictions:
...
Indian elephant male: really outdated compared with new CollectA and Papo, we need a new Schleich elephant in regular series; - AGREE, BUT I DOUBT THEY'LL DO IT NEXT YEAR
Young lion and lying lioness: not expectable since they are figures from 2008 but both are really uninteresting, it was better open space to a lying male lion;- DON'T THINK SO. SOMEHOW I DON'T THINK SCHLEICH WILL DISCONTINUE ITS LION PRIDE PIECE BY PIECE...
Ostrich 14325: I agree that doesn't makes sense to have two male ostriches in the same catalogue, maybe repainting it as a female or even replacing for a new mould, continuing with this mistake do not contributes to a serious image of the brand; 100%!!!
Bison: People here donnot agree with me but I think it is the worst bison of main brands and he feels surely alone in catalogue, so I think it will be also descontinued; AGREE!
White tailed deer: I have some doubts, they retired 4 deers recently, the true Bambie (roeddeer) and they saved the fast food Bambie (White tailed deer), maybe not yet but very soon surely; THAT'S RIGHT, BUT THE QUALITY OF WHITE-TAILED FIGURES IS VIVIDLY INFERIOR NEXT TO NEW RED DEERS AND MOOSE.
Tapir: I also think that the surprise retired figure will be the recently introduced tapir... or will they complete the family??? BOTH VARIANTS ARE POSSIBLE, strange as it may seem. BUT I THINK THERE'LL BE VARIANT 3 - NO CHANGES IN TAPIR REPRESENTATION :)

I would love to "know" which horses could be retired, but I must confess I´m very bad at this, so no predictions from me Rolling Eyes

I wonder if they will also get rid of the Gazelle mother and baby.....we have yet to have a father two years running and I find that odd and I think they were made to test the waters as such and may probably go? Just a hunch, dont shoot me! I love them. We do need a dad though!

To be honest to...
It doesn't interest me to which figurines are dis-continued, as i always will find then for a reasonable price if i still don't have them...
I think you have about 2-3 years to still get these particular figurines for a good price, or even less then the current price... Rolling Eyes
Some internet dealers even bring the prices down, you just have to check them... Wink

If Schleich are made for children, i think they should make rarer animals, that the children can get to know more different animals. As i was a little child, i know what an ant eater or an armadillo was. This is general knowledge.

I think Schleich will discontinue:

Standing arabian foal - there exists two and the one is from 2004.
The hippo - 15 years are enough.
The older golden retriever - we have two male, and no female.
The sitting squirrel - it looks old ans it is old. ^^
Asian elephant bull - same like the hippo.
The remaining pigs - some are gone 2010, i think the rest will go too.
The white tail deers - they are old.
The sea lion - only one seal is not good.
The bactrian camel mare and foal - the dromedars are gone, i think they will follow them.
The chimps - they are from 2002 and the other apes are gone lomg ago.

Willy is absolutely correct about all of this. In fact, sometimes one can find figures retired 2, 3, or 4 years ago for sale new with tag in a store.

This is a good principle, but it seems that only Safari Ltd. follows it. Other manufacturers have been focusing on well-known and more or less "cute" animals in recent years Sad ...

thanks for this update. I wish you had a camera with you to take a photo of the poster Very Happy

Interesting to know about the giraffe drinking - I always wondered how long that would last given its unusual pose and saleability along with the young lion.

Gnu calf? Wow, do we get another antelope in replacement? Perhaps a male Gazelle? here's to hoping!

Giraffe, Gnu and lion will all have had a relatively short lifespan thus increasing their collectability in the future.

With popular and obvious animals such as all the elephants, polar bears and panda going there could be replacements coming out which means less of a chance for new animal species...oh well. Fingers crossed!

So the time has finally come for the long running whale family coming to an end? Its seems like these set of animals are just going for good given many of them leaving us over the last few years.

On MPV forums someone wrote an e-mail to Schleich with question which horses will they retire (that forum focuses on horse models). Schleich wrote back and gave numbers of Clydesdale mare and equestrian sets (those including horses):
show jumping set 42026
dressage set 42035
western set 42036
rodeo set 42046
eventing set 42047

Coming back to the list Bongo wrote - I'm surprised that hippo will still be produced Shocked
Luckily, I'm not interested in any of models on this list, my wallet is a bit safer for now Cool

I had expected more from the horses. Schleich puts more horses in collection every year and less horses retire each time.

So we will have no whales next year (except the orca, I think)... What a pity, because I don't think they will remake it because they're expensive... Since now I'm beginning to look for them

@Skythelimit.

I'm Sorry, No. I don't collect humans, so I've marked only the animals in my "retire catalogue".

I don't belive in a female Kudu, there is no female ostrich or a male Gazelle, so why they should produce a female Kudu ?

For sure, they will have new elephants , a new Panda and probably new polar bears. They are a very popular species, so they would stupid, not to replace them by new models.

Its really sad, they stop produce the whales now. They were a big seller, nevertheless, they were not cheap. But who knows, maybe there wil be new whale species ? Or more pinnipeds ?

I do not know, more horses came out than retired the last years. But that might have to stop too. Shops can not sell al the horses anymore because of the number of different horses.

@Abu Rai.

Why Schleich should do that ? Don't Worry, they won't, I'm sure, the new elephants will have the same size as the present elephants.

About the Horses, it is very hard to say, what Schleich is doing. Most the of them are now not that old and looking phantastic, and I think, all of them are very popular and still big sellers, so there is no reason for Schleich, to retire them..

They retire only one horse, so this could mean, we will not get so much new horses next year, but nobody knows, so we still have to wait.... But I hope, we will get a few more new Wildlife Species than last year..

I guess, both were not good sold.....They are not the first Schleich Animals, which are being retired after two years...

I'm wondering, the gnu itselfs is still with us.... Very Happy
