PostSubject: A Suprise Package from Portugal - CollectA and others   Thu Mar 08, 2012 4:36 am

When I got home from work tonight there was a wonderful suprise to greet me.
A package all the way from Portugal.
There are many firsts for me in this package...

My first peacock ~ it says Procon on the bottom but is it a CollectA? The body is a lovely deep blue. Beautiful!

My first Turkey...but I don't recognize this fella

My first CollectA Horse ~ The Thoroughbred mare. I am suprised at how dense the plastic is on this horse.
I don't think I could reshape the legs if I wanted to...(like I had to on an old Schleich appaloosa gelding and a Papo pony)

They actually look pretty rested after such a long trip.

I just know you will be pleased with your peacock Gabe, he is lovely isn't he.
I look forward to seeing photos of your new figures when your order comes in. Wink

I just checked my Peacock it says 2008 Procon. I bought it from Australian Collecta wholesaler.
So I would have to say yes it is CollectA

Sue, I'm glad they arrived safely! :)
I forgot to put a little note with some information about the figures. I know you appreciate it. Sad
Anyway I know a very nice forum where we can find almost all answers to our questions.
The CollectA has no tag because it was from my collection and I often remove the tags.
It says Procon because that is the name of the manofacturer that created the brand CollectA. Exactly as Animals of Australia is a brand name that belongs to Science & Nature manofacturer. So, if you catalogue your figures like I do with mine you should use the name CollectA for the brand. Previously they were called also Nature's Wonders. The brand is also sold in other countries under other names as Susanne said! :)
I hope the legs of the horse are nice! :)This is the 2nd variation of the TB mare. In fact this mould represents the first of all CollectA horses in his second variation. CollectA before having a horses series had a pony, TB mare and foal in in Woodland series and only later started with a horses line giving a new colour and reference number to this mare. This generation of horses is relatively poor and probably this one is one of the best horses from this period. It was already descontinued and replaced for a new TB made by Deborah McDermot.
Curiously I have the original foal retired in 2007! What a Face
The swan and turkey are cheap toys sold under Atosa name in Portugal. They use Nayab moulds and I think that they also use Chap Mei and New-Ray moulds in other series.
These 2 I'm almost sure they are Nayab as already told before here. The swan is very nice, although the CollectA is far better!
The little croc is a K&M and you also need the cute chicks for your CollectA chickens! :)
That's a poor package compared with yours anyway I'm glad you love them! flower

The peacock is beautiful!

I was just admiring those CollectA chickens on TGF Toys website. Did you know that they have hatching chicks, too???

Congrats Sue!

Congratulations, the peacock was my first Collect A after seeing one in Rusty's thread. It's a great figure and better than the old Schleich one I think
