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.
