Interesting variations. In Papo figurines, I've noticed the paintwork differs.

Help ! I missed this subject affraid
Well, better late than never Very Happy

I LOVE these variations !
The croc is really differently painted.
Amazing how the shades of the leopards makes them look different !
I have the dark version, it looks a bit dull scratch

Please allow me to bring an old topic forward again.

As Harriet says, Papo makes an awful lot of variations, planned as well as unplanned.
A nightmare or a blessing for collectors of variations..that is how you see it Laughing Laughing

But it surely is a problem for the Net-shops, as it is extremely hard for them to bring the correct pictures of the actual figueres they have in stock Neutral

Maybe it would be a good idea to put what country they were made in so we will know what variation came from where?? would that make sense scratch scratch

Rusty, this subject is interesting and of course it is even more interesting knowing where figures are made. Mainly in Schleich figures. :)
But, there are already some topics under the same subject:

This last link is exactly the same subject and there are more in Schleich section! scratch
There's no problem reactivating an older topic! Very Happy

Here are my variations, all of which are Schleich. Does different versions from different years count? I don't collect variants, these are just doubles.

Clydesdales both made in China

Donkey The one on the left is made in Portugal (the older version) and the right one is made in China

Does Veb Plaho wanted to make species variation in the same mould?
Safari already did it! :) True variations indeed! :)

Andreas, I am not sure if any of these bears is from VEB Plaho. As far as I remember the age of "DDR", there were some bears sold in sets with Indians, they are "Fischer KG" origin. The mold is not the same, see the pics:

BTW:
This brown VEB Plaho bear (with two cubs) is the first figure in my collection (later I added some older figures but this one was the real start point for me as collector)...
