I noticed that the Schleich ferret has sometimes a curved tail and sometimes a straight one. Does anyone have more info about these? Mine has straight:

Have you seen many with curved tail ?
I tend to aggree with Pipi that the tail must be bent by somebod, - perhaps involuntaryly by keeping the critter lying with the tail in pressure in a hot place scratch

My own ferret figure is the only one I've seen in real life, so I don't know how the tails are supposed to look. Seems like many online stores have a picture of the ferret with curved tail, but actually they're using the exactly same picture:

Maybe the curved tails don't even really exist.

Wasn`t the foal where the wings are wrong ?
They changed the foal last year because its wings were wrong in 2009 Shocked

yes the foal was produced with wrong wings, but the adult had directly right wings (or at least never those completly wrong wings), but some shops still use a picture with these wrong wings:

I think the picture that the stores show, is wrong. scratch
It is almost impossible to make a good picture, where you can both see the cute face and the tail of the ferret Rolling Eyes

Here are mine :

Things change with the prototypes even after official photos are sent out. It could be that the original Ferret was to have a curved tail but someone changed it at the last minute but not in time for the original photos to be sent out in literature and so on......

It reminds me of the Safari Ltd original Okapi photo which turned out to be completely different when the final versions were sent to shops.....

hmm, looks like they've flipped the photo, but that still doesn't account for the shirt missing the neck scarf scratch
By the way, your photo is awesome! Very Happy

Mine is exactly like yours Shocked
He rests his left hand on his thigh, and no scarf on the man or star on the horse scratch

You are very observant, I have had that model for a couple of years, and never noticed geek Laughing

maybe Schleich should take the Photos AFTER they started producing a figure, they dont seem to know how they're gonna look like before Wink

Or they just want to create high expectations with better positions on the photos. it was the same with the arelan-eagle-guy:

but he looks like that in reality:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The first, unproduced one, looks much better in my opinion, and its the same with the western-set. The pose on the pre-picture promises much more "action".... But your photo shows definetly more action! Its a very cool idea with the dust/earth bounce (dont know wich word is used in english for that Wink)

Wow! Yes ! The eagle guy is also MUCH nicer in the catalogue Shocked

He has contact with the eagle, - something is happening ....and in the final model he just stands there Crying or Very sad

yes, exactly... i would really like to know whats going on in the heads of the schleich-people...
Maybe: "Ok, two possible poses: first, magic and dynamic position, oooor second: that guy ist waiting for the bus."
"Wow, waiting for the bus. Thats creativ! Lets do that and not this mystical stuff!"

I hope this years pictures keep their promises Wink
