Some of he old ones are much worse, if that is any consolation Laughing Laughing

I don`t know why Papo continues making many of their models in this very old-fashioned way.
Many of their models are not glued, even if they are complicated, so they CAN do it right scratch

Anyway I consider it one of the charms of it, - sort of "kitch" Wink

Every brands have their factory limitations. We see electrifying figures in Papo but this way of assembling is not very apealing for my taste! I don't have any problem saying that their last figures are much more exciting than Schleich but they should learn with the German brand in fabricating! Even Safari is not very good with painting, for example. Schleich and Mojo Fun are the best finishing their products, maybe that's the reason why we don't see very unusual poses in these 2 brands! scratch Idea

And Safari and - probably - Schleich are making exactly the same model without glue scratch

Perhaps Papo`s production equitment is geared to make the wonderful human models of knights, pirates etc, that they made originally ?
Or it could be as simple as them having some old, conservative production managers, who won`t use new methods geek Wink Laughing

Ok, I'll ask my gorilla how do he feel in this pose! Wink Maybe it is not complicated for a gorilla but in fabrication, I also want to know. I also can see clearly seams in my CollectA baboon but they are not deep as in Papo gorilla. In Safari figures I see some raised spots of plastic that I also really don't like. We must visit a factory!
Susanne, the pelican and gorilla choices are not casual as it was not the Asian elephant! Idea

Papo isn't the only company that does that. Look at some of the photos from Safari on their [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Their Incredible Creatures veiled chameleon's head and neck are like that too.

those figurines also have assembled parts, and especially for the orca, it's definitely not good looking

The orca is a very good example
What is better, a completly wrong orca without seams or a nice orca with seams? Well, the most part of customers, not us collectors, are not able to see what is wrong in a Schleich orca, anyway all customers can see the seams! Laughing But I agree, the best is to find a nice orca without seams and preferrably cheap! Wink

The Papo Cheetah has a seperate lower jaw, this makes it look like a puppet Suspect I don't like the glued on parts either, but you don't notice from a distance.

Big problem indeed. Laughing

Who could show me a better and more impressive croc than the PAPO one among the majors ?

Again, The PAPO orca has got a glued lower jaw but I can see it is a nicer and more realistic orca than the SCHLEICH one

it sure would be interesting to learn why they do this with some figures. It's a pity because it can spoil an otherwise wonderful figure: the new reindeer for example.

On the other hand, i love that the old "nuclear accident" sheep are pieced together. they're already so stupid looking that the weird construction makes them even funnier. The old ram's horns are glued on, and it looks like maybe even his whole head is. I think the ewe's head is one piece, but her legs are glued on!!!
No wonder their poor lamb looks so confused!


Has anyone had problems with Papo pieces breaking apart at the glue seams? i'm worried about my ewe's legs snapping off.

I would be too. Wonder what kind of glue keeps them together and if it will fall apart in the future? No

I have no problem with that at all. I have seen many companies do that: the reason is, making figs "piece by piece" allows a manufacturer to add many details and make unusual poses. Safari ltd did it with their Hermit Crab (shell, body and limbs all from different molds) and the result is unbeatable. king Their Chinese Dragon also has a lower jaw glued on the upper jaw and that allowed them to represent detailed teeth and flexible-looking tongue. So, does it bother me to see manufacturers making multiple-mold figures? Not at all. queen

All brands assemble parts of their figures. The difference is while in Schleich and Mojo you cannot see the seams in Papo they are easily visible as well in some CollectA and Safari. I can see them in my Safari arctic wolf and also in my CollectA baboon, for example.
