PostSubject: My last Schleich additions for 2011   Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:22 am

I was browsing an online shop where I buy most of my Papo and Schleich from, when I suddenly saw Schleich 2012. I emailed them and asked whether they were really available or if they were just for pre order. They emailed back and said they had a special delivery for Christmas, so I ordered all the one's I wanted:
first the birds

I'm happy with all, except the peregrine falcon and stork don't seem to be made of the same plastic as the rest, it's a lot lighter and the paintwork on the peregrine falcon isn't that great in my opinion












now the sheep and I bought the pygmy goat as well


with all the Schleich sheep for comparison

Congratulations Harriet! :)
I like the snowy owl as I told before But definitively these birds are not exciting! :( Now I understand why someone was saying that the falcon was the best owl of ever! :geek: It is the 2nd peregrine falcon of the brand much more was expected. CollectA and Bullyland did a better work in it even they are also not excelent! :)
In your pictures everything looks nice and what a nice way to start 2012! :)

Thanks Christophe and Roger sunny
I'm wasn't really excited about most of these new releases, but I do love the snowy owl a lot, this one I was excited to get. And it's lovely. The old Schleich stork I never managed to get, so I was interested to get this new one - I think the old version was better quality though. As for the pelican, he's a nice figure, but boring as it's the same pose as all the other brand's pelicans. I wish I hadn't bought the falcon now, but maybe I can repaint him. Sleep

Thankyou for the wonderful pictures and congratulations with getting them so early cheers

We are very lucky that some of our good photographers got them so early, so we can see them Very Happy

Untill now I have always been very exited to get all the new Schleich, but this year... scratch

Actually I think I am more exited about the new Bullylands, - at least they are true to their brand Laughing Laughing

Well, now I shall not be too negative. I LOVE the sheep and the goat cheers

Congratz on your new additions and thanx for the great pics of them cheers

I still think the stork looks a bit wierd, I think the beak is a little bit too big scratch

Harriet, I forgot to ask about the different material of the falcon and stork. Could you please check if they are made in a different country? Maybe Tunisia? :study:

Thank you Friends! cheers glad you like the photos too, although I think some are a little dark study
I love the sheep and goat too Susanne cheers

About the stork and falcon Roger, I checked and they're both made in China, it's odd they used a cheaper feeling plastic scratch

I'll try and get a better photo of the owl for you Vivien, interesting if your's has different eye colour bounce

Anna, I find the stork a little odd too, I was thinking the bottom of it's legs were a little thick - you can't see them properly in the photo. But maybe you're right about the beak scratch

Thanks Harriet, but the other figures are also made in China? I thought they were using a lighter plastic to turn heavy figures a little lighter, for example, the previous Asian elephant is 280g of weight, the heaviest of all, for example, Papo elephant is 200g.
There's new children safety rules for 2012, maybe they are using a softer plastic also thinking in the pointy parts of these figures? Well, it is not easy to explain how do it feels but I'll check it in shops soon or later! :)
It would work disappointing with a brand where the production quality is a strong point. :flower:

Yes they're all made in China, I always hope one might be made in Portugal or Germany drunken the Stork is made of a softer plastic, very flexible, but the base is made of thin, hard plastic. The falcon just feels light and not as nice as Snowy owl.

If they are making them lighter its because of kids like my 2 year old nephew that throws EVERYTHING at you affraid I would hate to see him get ahold of a heavy elephant Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I am probably lucky that no stores have any of the new ones yet.... geek
