Today I looked at giraffes in 2 stores (both Müller drugstores-they're about 1 km separated) I found the newly painted Giraffe calf made in Germany, which has NO ugly spots, all the other newly painted Giraffes have spots and they were all made in China!!!!
There was also one disturbing thing: one store has new Trained Horse and Akhal-Teke Mare made in Germany, and the other sells their Made in China horses, which are really shiny and cheap looking. scratch

As Numaan mentioned before, Schleich does that on regular basis.
Here is another example;

Always remember that variances are always generated when a new additional family member is added to a 'family' for sure especially if the new member is much improved in colour and texture.....it can be both irritating or fun to collect these differences Very Happy

On another note, we have discussed many times before the differences between China and German made models and the general consensus is that the German ones are better. The plastic and paint techniques are of a slightly higher quality....but there I have noticed an exception regarding the Yak.

The German made Yak is made of a Shinier plastic and has a glittery sheen like quality to it whereas the China Yak is far superior. I dont know if anyone has noticed but I also spotted this at the London Toy Fair in Jan 2011. All the models on Display were the German made model and the Yak was shiny. I am surprised as usually its the China models that can have that quality. But actually the China Yak is much better. Has anyone noticed?

The China Made Arctic fox however has the same shiny glittery look to it whereas the German one is matt white and stunning.

Very strange indeed......

I also find the Portugal made models to be of the same quality as the German ones.

My Yak was made in Portugal and looks perfect!!!

You're right about Arctic Fox, I have the Made in China version and is terrible, hope I can find some Made in Germany

Yes - I can't remember where we talked about this before, but you're right the made in China one seems nicer. But maybe there are other variations out there, as Bojan's says his is ok? scratch

Rusty showed another example : the squirrel made in China was better than the squirrel made in Germany. It depends on the models. And, most of the time, we don't have the choice, so...

Oh, no thanks Susanne...
Yes, variations can be an expensive thing indeed, as you already know from Bullyland, but they are cheaper of course... Laughing

When the drinking giraffe, and the stretched giraffe came out, they changed the former model and calf into a version which fitted better with the 2 new ones, so with smaller spots.

Susanne, it is waht I call real variations! What a Face These 2 figures are part from the evolution of the brand and not only variations because one is better painted than the ohter! :)
It will happen with Mojo giraffe. We can find 2011 giraffe with some different paintjob but not real variations, the Harriet 2012 version is a real variation. But this is me saying silly things and not what a hard collector like you and others shoud think! Wink

I checked my Schleich yak first, it was made in Portugal, but is a little bit shiny to in certain light... Rolling Eyes

Your second giraffe is totally different from my last one Susanne, mine is painted very nicely, and the paintwork on yours seems to be hainpainted indeed, but very sloppy here and there... Shocked

Yeah ! Perhaps some new employee made this one before being tranferred to kitchen duty Rolling Eyes Laughing

Fortunately Rusty is selling his, so I am getting a better one Wink
And, well, then I have this "kitchen-giraffe" as a variant Laughing

I think, long before, i had much more variants, specially in Schleich, but as i sold the first collection, and re-started, i lost a lot of them... Crying or Very sad
Next to that, i don't collect all figurines anymore as you know, no bigger farmlife, no dino's, so that saves me a lot in searching for variations.. Wink
In Britains, i have most stuff indeed, but ok, those are the older brands, and i collect them for about 40 years, so that is not fair... Laughing
And the title Tsar wouldn't fit me at all, i am not royal or having blue blood in any way, so Emperor Willy of old junk would be enough i guess... drunken geek scratch
