I still haven't received my much anticipated Vietnamese Pig. But there was some nice light the other day and I decided to use it to snap a few pictures. Here are some recent acquisitions, all retired figures by Schleich.

Anteater

Anteater, armadillo, hyena and the Angus cattle, - all are from the day when Schleich deserved to be the abolute market-leader of models for adult collectors cheers

Those orangutans are SO adorable, thay always make me smile. Laughing

Congratulations, you have some of my favorites there!
The armadillo is wonderful, and I really like the anteater. The angus are some of their best cattle too

Thank you Harriet! I love the anteater too. Such a lovely figure. I spent some time after getting it looking at pictures of anteaters and reading about them. This figure does a wonderful job of capturing the likeness of a Giant Anteater.

Thank you Christophe!

I adore the armadillos too. Instead of joining the rest of my figures, the armadillo stays on the endtable at my bedside. It's the one I keep near me at all times so I can just stare at it. The nice thing about this forum is that I know people here understand what I'm talking about. Telling this to other friends usually leads to blank stares.

(I have to say, though, I bought the Safari Armadillo years ago and hated it. I put it in a drawer and I'm not even sure where it is. Hmm. I just find it.)

Ah, Noora, this makes me happy! It is this forum that has made me run out and find many of my favorite figures. I don't know whether to blame you all or thank you. (I'll thank you.)

Bojan, right now, this is my favorite set of Cattle. And I am more keen on collecting Cattle than anything else. (The Swiss Cow is on my wish list. I have a Swiss Bull on the way, but I think it is pretty beat up. We'll see.)

Susanne, I agree completely! I was just saying to a friend that those were the "golden" years for Schleich. No other figures, no matter how much I like them, compare to Schleich figures from between 2000 and 2006 (or thereabouts; I'm not trying to be too precise).

Thank you Vivian! I still have several oldies on my wish list: The European Bison, Oryx Antelope, the Male Orangutan, the old Wolf (14223), and a few horses (which I have mixed feelings about), like the Thoroughbred. The first three on that list though are the ones I want to find in mint condition.

Ha! Carolynn, I'm glad you liked that. He does look really glum (especially compared to the Hyenas by different makers). But I like that. And my day is made by the fact that you've now seen the Armadillo, because it is a knock-down lovely figure by Schleich.

Thank you all for your comments. (Andreas, Martin, Arnaud, and others whose names I don't know yet.) I almost tried to "quote" and respond to everyone, but this is already way too long and I hope you understand.

-Scott

p.s. Tim, just saw your comment as I was posting. Thanks!

Another recent member of my schleich retirement home. He's a little scuffed, but somehow, that suits him. (Notice one of his natural predators in the background. But the muskox does not fear the arctic wolf. The muskox fears nothing! ...except maybe a bath.)

And here are some Red Deer Family Photos. I recently acquired the older Stag (14248). The moment I pulled him out of the box and saw him in person, I was wowed. He cuts an impressive figure: gigantic antlers, and in general he seems very large. It was only after taking the photos that I realized the replacement Stag does fit better with the family. They agree in color and texture. So perhaps it wasn't a complete mistake for Schleich to retire the older stag and introduce the new one.

The original family:

Now: my badgers. I start with my retirement home badger. He is in beautiful condition and I was thrilled to see how well preserved he was. Worth every penny on eBay.

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

Next, grandpa Badger next to Schleich's more recent badger. They are very different and honestly I really like both. There is something lovely about the older model that is special, but I am still very fond of the newer figure.

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

The newer Schleich and the badger by Mojo Fun are quite similar. I am a huge fan of Mojo and frankly, if it were not for my irrational affection for Schleich, I would probably prefer Mojo figures over anything else. But this is one case where putting the Schleich and the Mojo next to each other does not favor the Mojo. I like the figure okay; I just like the Schleich much better. However, I think part of the issue is that the particular Mojo Badger I have isn't painted very well. In particular, the white paint on its face is caked on. Perhaps others are not painted similarly and this is rather an issue peculiar to my figure. In any case, the sculpture itself seems great.

Finally, two group shots. In the first picture below, from left to right: Safari's American Badger, Schleich (1993-2001, 14224), Schleich (2011-present, 14650), and Mojo Fun.
