PostSubject: Collecta horses   Mon Oct 03, 2011 11:03 pm

Never liked Collecta horses very much (some of them have quite strange proportions), but the new molds by Deborah McDermott made me change my mind. So now I have a small herd of them, that's still growing:)
Here are some of their pics.
A Friesian stallion Deathweaver.

Two Appaloosas (no names yet). Funny enough, but the black one is the horse I like most among all the Collecta herd.

This gorgeous Andalusian stallion entered my collection with the help of Harriet. Thank you very much!
His name's Dairmaid ('Free' in Gaelic)

And two old Collecta horses:

Those are all wonderful! The older standing TB mare with her foals are high on my wantlist. I *almost* ordered them today, but got the Papo English TB instead. I will definitely have to get those next time!

WOw! Beautiful additions Daria and I'm glad the Andalusian Dairmaid (lovely name! They all have) made it to your collection cheers I think my favourite is the new Thoroughbred. I still need the Lusitano and Tennesse. bounce

Wonderful collection and lovely pictures cheers

CollectA has really deserved to be a market leader in model horses !
Now they just need to get their net of distribution improved, so more people can discover their beauty Wink

I agree with that, it's so frustrating not being able to get their newer models, like the spoonbills and mountain goats Sad

Another fan of the new horses by Collecta Very Happy
They are really great, I can't wait to get my own.

And I never though than Gaelic language may be such a great source for names Laughing I need to remember that.

I think you'd like her- she has a strong individuality. I even am not sure that the new TB mare mold is better than hers))

SUSANNE
Quite agree with you. However, there are some difficulties with getting their figurines in Scandinavia (esp Finland and Sweden, as I can see), Russia and some other countries.
It's a pitty.

HKHollinstone
He's so great. I like him very much. However, he needs his Grainne now:) So I'm looking for an Andalusian mare for him:) Wish you'd get the missing equines soon.

ken yeo
You know, he might be looking rather plain on promo photos, but in real life he's really cool:)
Thinking on getting a pinto version of him:)

MartinH, Roger
Thank you)
The only thing I do not really like about them is that many of them have very similar heads, no matter a Tennessee Walker it is, an Andalusian or a TB. Never noticed it in McDermott resins, but her Collecta molds have this point.

Mangalarga
Hope you'll get them soon)
And yes, Gaelic is a very beautiful language, I like the way it sounds, though understand very little of it (esp because of my interest in Celtic mythology in general and Unseelie Court and Lesser Fae, and brook horses- in particular).

wow! the old ones have their charm, but the new ones are really superb models! To be expected if Deborah McDermott is now sculpting for them!

I've found an interview with her, about horses for Collecta: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
And there are some really great news for horse collectors:
Quote :
There are ponies, draft horses and more light horse breeds already in production for 2012.
Also another interesting quote, but I don't know if she meant Collecta models or resins:
Quote :
... there is a new Arabian I am working on as well as a couple of Haflinger foals that are in production.

Now I can't wait to see new models even more! bounce bounce bounce

sounds like they'll be Collecta:
Quote :
Some of the Collecta models are being finished for release, next up will be the Arabian mare and Friesian models.
Very Happy

Some more Friesians? Oh.. Well... Hope she won't be focusing on them (and Arabians) only. I'd like to see A Saddlebred, and a Trakhenner. And yes, some draft breeds.

They might be for Collecta but they might be resins as well. That sentence isn't clear enough. We'll have to wait Wink

I think they do. Or you may try to order them via utterlyhorses.com. AFAIK, they ship worldwide.

Thanks to Ezhilan I have two more Collecta horses now.

The Hanoverian bay stallion. He has no name yet, but I think my small Hanoverian herd is pleased to meet him anyway:)
And what a gorgeous bay color he has! Yes,I'm in love with bay horses bounce .
His forelegs are a bit curved because of his long journey from India, but I think hot water would help me to solve that problem.

The second one is a Lusitano buckskin stallion.
Funny enough, but my friend gave me a grey Lusitano as a present at the same day I received the package from India))
So now I have both of them! And- how different they look, though technically the differ only in color. The buckskin one seems to be lighter, and the grey one reminds me of mustangs. He's so furious...
