EUR 468,78 No No No

I think i even should sold my one.

Ore should i wait until i could get a new car for the beagle? :) :)

I think the 13410 und 13411 are the hardest to find, because Thorben and myself don`t have this figures until now. The other figures wich were very hard to find for me was 13401 with black skirt and 14070 with the white skirt.

But i can say, that the highest price wich i has sold for a figure was 100 Euro. And this only two times. For my first brown Pelican and for the Rare Pinto.

There were two of the artist horses on sale to last days.
New in box by the way...
The 17651 Trotting horse went away for 66 euro's. which was not to bad i think.
The 16753 rearing black stallion for over 125 euro!

But the beagle for 468,78 euro was far too much!
That was idiot as i may speak so, even when you want it very much! affraid
I think that around 250 euro should be the maximum for a figurine from that age.
It was in good condition, but even then...
I have to make a find on an attic or so, with a box with a 100 of them, then i stop working for at least a year... Cool

Hey, Peter, if you wait three years and then sell that beagle, you'll be driving a new Lamborghini or Ferrari soon after..... Very Happy

I've never seen the 13410 or 13411 for sale or auction, and the same for the 14075 and 14076. I won the 13401 dark skirt four times on eBay.fr, as well as the 13400 brown and green. I assume you mean the 14070 male zookeeper blue and white variant that Torben recently unveiled OVP (!!!)? If you have that one, Peter, big congratulations to you - that's a fantastic find.

Never spent more than 100? That's because you have an encyclopedic knowledge of Schleich and you're a disciplined bidder who works hard at it...Well Done! Wink

It may be that now that the price of that beagle went so high other beagles will come available with the hope of the sellers being they could possibly get a Big Price as well! But, then so many may come available that it may bring the price back down. Supply,demand and greed. Right now there is a Water Buffalo on ebay.com that has a couple days left and is presently at $31.00 without tag. It is the first one I've seen since I started watching ebay.com for the last month. The same seller has the Gnu (14162) with the bid at $18.00. I had decided to check the numbers on the tags in his listings and noticed that a couple did not match the figure it was on and sent him a question about that. He quickly made a note to all the bidders and responded back to me that the tags were just to show they were Schleich and not with the figure. He told me he was unsure when he listed if there would even be any interest! Ha! lol! I think he will be happy with his sales.
What have you found when it comes to the retired figures ~ and tags. Is it very hard to come up with the tags and how much more valuable can that make them? Sue

Hello Sue. You are quite correct about the "copycat" or "copybeagle" phenomenon. There have been a number of them auctioned recently, and one in the six months prior to that. They are starting to appear, as you noted, as there is blood in the water... Laughing
And we all have Torben to thank for this new craze - Beagling.

Retired new-with-tag figurines are always more expensive. The amount of the differential between a used and a NWT figurine depends on which figurine it is.

I think I've auctioned/sold three or four water buffaloes in the past on eBay.com, usually as a Buy-It-Now item for $16-20 used in excellent or very good condition, but then my prices are always much lower than most. If you want, I'll find you a cheap one on eBay.de.

Hello Mihnea. I've been following his auctions too. Some nice stuff, and his shipping rate to the USA is unbelievably low. No Paypal, however.

The time to buy on e-bay is already going bad again, because the prices go up again, and this will continue to the end of the year! Crying or Very sad

Or till they run out of money ~ whichever comes first. Of course there are those who tend to only eat Top Ramen or Kraft macaroni and cheese so they have more money but you do have to pay the electric and water bill sometime lol!

It looks like someone over here in the USA is putting his Schliech collection with alot of "retireds" up on ebay.com one at a time. He had a pot-bellied pig with tag, dacshund with tag, blue parrot and others and says in his listings that he is going to be continuing to list all his collection. His beginning bids are higher than the Gascher's Schleich collectors book ~ AND HE SHIPS WORLDWIDE in his listing so I wanted to let everyone know. His name is "Cheesonrye" and the figures were recently listed - like today 9/8/10. So there you go all! - Happy Hunting! ~Sue

This will be hard Phil, as in most cases you have to pay first, before you will get anything! Cool
But you could buy some other beagles as i said before, and re-paint them into the dark beagles...(if you are good at doing that...) Laughing

And Sue, could you give a proper link to one of his sellings, because i cant find this seller with the name only... Laughing

Well that ebay seller is still putting figures up for sale. Has anyone else been following this? I like keeping track to update my Gaschers catalogue with how much figures especially retireds are selling for. I put removable stickers on the pages and date and list if they are NWT or no tag and what they sold for. So you've probably noticed there are several bidders/ collectors really bringing up the value of the figures! A musk ox without tag went for $32.05 and the Vietnamese (Pot Bellied) pig went for $53.01 (it's so funny when they bid odd cents amount) but it did come with tag. I actually knew a doctor that had one of these for a pet. He said it behaved like his dog. He lived just outside a smaller town (population 5,600). Did you know they can be house trained? Most pigs prefer to go the the bathroom in one area of their pen - occassionally you come across a horse that is like that too, which makes it easier to clean the stall Very Happy {Maybe you didn't want to know that kind of information Laughing ] I live in a larger city with Spokane's Population is 200,000 and surrounding county area of 400,000 and recently found out that if I wanted I could get 3 chickens. No rooster of course as they are too noisy. I think I'll just continue to collect Schleich chickens for now...no eggs with those though. :) ~Sue

Hello, if you want a Vietnamese Pig, you could get a better price than that by going to:

You will want to check first with the seller, but I believe it will be new with tag. This is the variant with the unpainted tusks.....

It is not only rare or not, but in what condition as we saw before on the Swiss calf, and with or without the tag.

The rarest in my years of expertise are the next, in order of hard to get them, but not all in the exact order.
In the eyes of some people they might not be hard to get, but it is my opinion after hunting 5 years of Schleich.

Horses:

13241 Pintohorse, old version(rare)
13210 White Darley Arabian completely white, and the one with grey spots a little bit easier
13103 Brown foal
13222 Shirehorse manes upright
13209 Haflinger grazing in several versions
13215 Brown pony
13216 Running brown horse
13225 Chestnut Mare
13232 Shetland pony darker version
13249 Icelandpony darker version, after that the lighter version 13264
13250 Fjordpony, version with and without eelstripe
13273 English Thoroughbred
The rest of the horses is quit available, depending on the state they are in.

Dogs:

16302 Beagle, dark version(very rare!)
16306 Schnauzer, grey
16305 Poodle, darkbrown/black
16302 Beagle, light version
16306 Schnauzer, black
16303 Boxer, darkbrown
16312 Basset
16303 Boxer lightbrown
16305 Poodle, white
16322 New Foundlander
16310 Fox Terrier, first version
16314 Bobtail
16318 Dobermann
16324 German Pointer
16325 Rottweiler
16326 Münsterländer
16336 Airdale Terrier
16337 Giant Schnauzer

Remember, they are not always hard to get, but it is a matter of the moment, and the right time, the right condition, and then the right price.
When you have enough money to spend, you can get everything you want, isn't it???
Later more...


hehe i have a pure white darly arabian!! tongue Very Happy i thaught that was the easiest one! thanks for telling !!
