I think they aren`t "older" models, but it is a good question scratch

The same is, what is "vintage" ? Laughing

It has got something to do with the age, but also the age of the brand, - like Lineol, Starlux, Reisler, Plaho etc...they were made rather recently, but I still consider them "older" scratch

I agree with Susanne. Older animals are for me animals, they dont produced today. Also by brands they are closed. scratch

Ahahah, playing with TM? :)
Tortoise mammal? Wink Well, I know unless a crocodile that is a mammal and a tortoise too! :)
Vintage means twenty years ago. From the French, vint = twenty and age. :)
That was used with wine and now it is used with several things. Of course 20 years ago is not a rule but makes some sense, when we have 30 years old the things when we was 10 years old give use a vintage feeling. :)
Britains is a vintage brand once their glorious era was in 60's and 70's, some Schleich should be considered vintage but the brand is not a vintage brand. :)

1998 definitely is not vintage... scratch and though someone who is 14 considers themselves old ~ these aren't.
So I would say that this post needs to be moved to the "newer plastic etc" section.
Actually If anyone is thinking they would like them PM me.

I don't plan on collecting them...so should this be in the For sale/Trade section???

It is already in the right section, now you can use the same picture and open a new topic saying that they are for trade. flower
