PostSubject: Fantastic February!   Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:08 pm

The month has just begun, but it's gonna be so great for my collection that I named this thread "Fantastic February!".

First, the Schleich beagle I've been looking for since I strated collecting (which wasn't that long ago actually):

With him came the fox that I also didn't have before:

And the hare:

Those I got yesterday. And today I got him :) :

Some of you might remember that I already had three of the oldest Schleich foxes. Today I started my first repaint-project with one of them, yay! (I'll show photos if I ever get finished.)

But, what's even more interesting, is that when I was looking for my paints and stuff, I came across a tiny porcelain dachshund I've had for about 15 years. I've missed him a lot lately and thought that I must have given him away when I moved away from home (over 10 years ago). But, there he was, long lost friend was found from the bottom of a box full of painting equipments! I can't believe it's true, but here he is, next to the Schleich dachshund:

I'm so happy i found him I love you
Today I also made an order to a webshop. I'm gonna get species (or breeds) I've said that I wouldn't collect, and also non-Schleich figures, which will be my first ones, except for that porcelain puppy. But I'll keep my secret until they arrive and post photos then!

That was a superfast online store! They came already!

First, the dogs. I was going to collect only beagles and dachshunds, but they had Papos I had never seen before and thought weren't even sold in Finland. I think they were absolutely lovely and couldn't resist them. Beagle: Bullyland, others: Papo.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Birds, part one: Bullyland, Schleich, Schleich.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Birds, part two + a badger. The penguin on the right wasn't in the same packet but came at the same time - from Andreas, thank you!! cheers . Bullyland, Bullyland, Schleich, Schleich.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And then I got some free stuff! The reindeer is by Safari.

From [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] - everything's in finnish, but I just checked that they do send elsewhere as well, but then you should make your order by email (which might be the easiest way anyway). You can also PM me if you need help with something.

Fantastic February is only half way and I'm starting to scare myself with the speed my collection is growing Very Happy

Last week I got some new Schleich birds: emperor penguin with chick, ostrich chick, peregrone falcon and baby eagles in nest. Photos are on my website if you want to see.

What I want to show you even more are these..

First, from Philipp (PeGe) I got my first Starlux (the cutest badger ever <3), my first Playvisions (orca), and a little surprise:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Thank you so much, Philipp!

Then, I got my first Kaiyodo, the raccoon dog. My friend got it for me from Ebay.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
I'm crazy about raccoon dogs, so you might be able to imagine how happy I was putting the pieces together.

I also got two more Starlux figures. Schleich rooster is there for size comparison:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I knew all these newcomers would be small, but they still surpised me. Both with their small size and with their amazing details. With all these new brands added to my collection, I feel like this is the point when I'm officially crazy (= true collector) cyclops drunken alien Laughing

Thank you, everyone! I love you

And guess what - I have "some" new figures again.. I don't know where they come all the time. Shocked Laughing

-Mojo wolf and hyena. Bought as "used", but seem brand new. I love them!
-PlayVisions raccoon dog. I guess I don't even need to tell how much I love it. Thank you, Anna!
-Bullyland penguin, jack russel terrier, lynx, orca and humpback whale. Found from a bottom shelf of a shop I didn't even know would sell Bullylands. Maybe they didn't know about it either, they seemed to be totally forgotten there. The humpback is my favourite, he's still here with me while the others already went to the vitrine (or bathroom, where my whales and sharks live nowadays because there's no space in the vitrine..) Very Happy
-Some random China birds from the flea market.
