For several years I had the sea lion, sea elefant, seals,walruss and octopus. But I certainly dod not want the whales, sharks etc.

Then I joined this forum Rolling Eyes So about a year ago I began looking for them all.

And today I got the last one, - THE BELUGA cheers

She has a few scratches, but who cares ? I don`t Laughing
She is lovely, - and she is made in Portugal Very Happy

Thankyou Anna Very Happy cheers

Yes, some of them are darned expensive, esp if they are flawless No
Many of mine have had a good life as toys for some child, before they came here.
But I have just seen in TV that most of them have scars and torn flippers in real life too, so that is ok Laughing

Tha whales also take up a lot of space, - but they ARE beautyful Very Happy

Ohhhhh!!! cheers cheers cheers

a really nice figurine also in my wish list and also looking for it a long time ago... but prices are really expensive.

Now the number one in my list, the elephant seal, will arrive to my home that week, I hope :) It's not so pretty as the beluga anyway Razz

The dumb thing about the whales are that it´s not just the retired figurines that are expensive. The whales you can still buy in store are very expensive too, some of them over 25euro No

of course, that is because of their size, but it´s still a lot of money Rolling Eyes

There i have bought only one time. Never again.

One example:
There the Blauhai costs 3,89 Euro. Insured with DHL 8 Euro shipping costs in Germany.
At bayby-markt.de 3,50 Euro. Insured with DHL in Germany 2,90 Euro shipping costs. Over 20 Euro the shipping is free.

Congratulations Susanne, the beluga is wonderful and you are right, scratched is much more realistic, mainly in whales!
Yes, I also love them but they are very large and expensive, except to Peter that buy them with factory prices! Wink
Fortunately Sue, that I don't see here already for a long time, explained me how can I collect whales... my beluga is very small but also very nice, from brand Colorata. The worst is that I find here Schleich wales everywhere and none from Colorata! Sad
Schleich should sell them cheaper here because they are made in Portugal!

Congrats on finding the beluga finally Susanne! cheers
It is true that it is hard to find one without any scratches, but that is only natural as you mentioned.
It isn't the most realistic looking beluga in the business, but a must have for a Schleich collector.
After restarting my Schleich collection, it was one of the first items i was hunting for, as the experience from before helped me to find the rarer items first... Laughing Cool

I am so happy that you like her, Appy Very Happy Thankyou flower

The sealife has so far also been the last ones for me to collect ( Except for the coral reef-fish).
I thought they were a little strange, lying there on their bellies.
But this forum opened my eyes to them, I saw how some can make dioramas where it looks like they swim, and it makes them look so beautyful Very Happy

Hmmm, right now I can`t find those pictures from Sergey`s shelves scratch . Perhaps if Sergey sees this he can make a link ? Very Happy
Schleich had made som awesom cattle too, and the horses, of course cheers

A few years ago, in 2006, I've been to the Oceanarium Lisbon, a really great place to visit, so I've seen for the first time in my life, a manta ray.

But I was very surprised also, to find the Schleich Beluga and and the Hammehead Shark in the giftshops, altough they have been retired at this time since 2003...

I don't know, if they still on Sale there, but I don't think so...
