Bojan, you have a really wonderful Schleich collection! :) I'm enjoying a lot seeing your pictures! I also like the way you collect, you give priority to different moulds and not to different uses fo the same mould. Maybe the llama is one of the exceptions! :)
I am not a hard Schleich collector but I hope to find some of them, the armadillo and jackal, for example. :)
My favourite is also the musk ox but the mountain goat is a superb figure too! cheers
There are some also recent releases that I like, the shiny fox, the new kudu and yak are some examples! :)
It looks you also use Tim's webpage to see the name of the animals but those are not water buffalos but African buffalos! :) I really don't know how it was called in the catalogue! :)

I again started collecting figurines in 2008 after I had some medical issues and this helped me a lot! Very Happy


Llamas are the exception, because I didn't like so much the lighter one, so I got myself the brown one.
Roger, you are right. It is African Buffalo in the new catalogue. I just translated it from our Slovenian Schleich catalogue
where it was called Vodni bivol = water buffalo :)

That's very interesting how collecting figures helped you! :) I'm very glad knowing it.
Translations are always dangerous, I was lucky enough to see the preview of CollectA 2012 catalogue and among a lot of errors there was a T-rex with cub when in fact it is a T-rex with prey! Laughing I hope it goes correct in the final Portuguese version! :)

Thank you all.

Susanne, thank you again, I'm perfect now! Very Happy

Harriet, collecting Schleich it's easier than other figurines, because Schleich has been available here for years now in every city and even longer in
Austria. Knowing their quality it was also no problem to order them online.
It's much different with other brands, Bullyland is available only in our capital (about 180 km away), while Collecta is very limited and very expensive in one of our internet stores. No Papo, Safari or Mojo here. And even in Austria I couldn't find Bullyland (which is sad, since it's a German brand), Safari, Collecta and Mojo.. Maybe it's different in Wien, their capital.
As I said before I have to see the figurine in person first (or at least the brand and how their animals are made) and then I can decide to purchase it or not... I will definitely shop online for Collecta and Papo, because they kinda impressed me a lot Very Happy But I am not sure about Safari yet

Bojan, if you don't want to complete all ranges from other brands I recomend you clearly Safari figures. The finish work is relatively poor compared with Schleich but some figures are fantastic. For example, the Safari anteater is absolutly fantastic, much better than the Schleich even for those that are more used with the German brand, see also how beautiful is their arctic wolf. Also Safari give us the chance of having some unusual species in this world of plastic figures. Where do you find an aardvark,coyote, pronghorn, bighorn, etc. Those are not only unusual but also good figures.
They have a style of painting that is not very good but works very well with birds. Safari has wonderful birds even those from farm series.
CollectA figures from last years has an average quality very interesting and Mojo is a fantastic box of surprises. Papo is the brand with the most marked own style and usually or we like a lot or we don't like. Curiously I live with Papo in the same way as I do with other brands. Some figures I like, others I don't like, easy! :) The forum will help you to choose the best way! Very Happy

Thank you everyone, and thank you Roger for your advice. I wasn't sure about Safari, but now I'll probably give them a try. I do like pictures of some of their North American animals and will probably order some of them on MPV. Or are there some other great sites for all the brands in Europe?

I think MPV is a good online shop to buy them, unless the collectors with more experience are buying there. Maybe there are more shops but as I don't buy online I cannot help you more! Sad
