So, what are your impressions of these figures? Painting, postures, size?
In particular, isn't the cheetah too large near the rhino?

For Zebu is rare and cheetah is posture even though it look big compared with rhino. I think the rhino should be bigger and also applied to Zebu too!

Well cheetah is little more bigger than i want but it is still gorgeous:) Yeah rhino could be bigger but... i love that one. And his coloring too... specially his legs are fantastic! But I´m not so sure about his eyes... should be black.

Zebu... I was like "i don´t know" about zebu but i have to say... i really love it. Size is ok, great color and i really love his eyes!

And there is one thing i´m not so happy about... legs of camel... i don´t like them at all. But this camel is much more better than dromedary by Papo...

Congratulations Martin, fabulous additions!! The Rhino is too small compared to the cheetah, Papo is like Schleich in getting the scale wrong. But it is a beautiful model, a must have. Cool

Congratulations Martin! I am thinking of Papo tigress with cub should vote for most popular PVC animal of the year and it since is a must have animal for most of the collectors.

You mean "The most popular animal figurine-2010"? i.e. among the new stuff?
By the way, it'll be cool to make a survey about it at the forum.

The tigress is a nice piece for sure(since Papo big cats are the best), however... I still would like to see more tigers(and big cats) in different positions!

I agree too with the 2010 figurine of the year. That's a nice idea to Torben in this forum.
We should participate masively and each person should have to choose 3 figurines each.
Than Torben should send to the brand of the winner an official e-mail with congratulations.
Something like this:
Dear Sirs,
The Schleichtiersambler, forum about figurines has elected (????) as the pvc figurine of the year!!!
The winer will be probably a Papo model and I don't really know if they will like the name of this forum...

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy You're 100% right! Just imagine a Papo press-release with a headline "Schleichtiersammler chooses Papo model as the best animal figurine of 2010".
The name of the forum definitely needs adjusting. I think it shouldn't include "Schleich" and be in English - no "sammler", as it is an international community.
Torben, what do you think about it?

Torben, what do you think about it?

The beginning of my collecion was Schleich and i´m a german collector, therefor schleichtiersammler. In the last years the collection grows to one of the biggest i know. A lot of other producers came to it.

I think the best name for the site would be:

www.Schleich-Papo-Safari-Bullyland-AAA-Chapmei-Collecta-Colorata-ELC-Furuta-Kabaya-NewRay-andmanyothers-internationalanimalcollector.de scratch

No, there are hundreds of collectors worldwide who know my homepage under the name schleichtiersammler. For me there´s no reason to change the name. I think every collector should be able to know 3 german words:

schleich = Schleich
tier = animal
sammler = collector

I agree with Torben, I don't think it should be changed. After all, Schleich is really the main brand that we all collect isn't it?

No! Schleich is not the brand more represented in my collection! But I have a very small indeed.
I don't agree with changing the name of this forum I only saying that Papo will not like the name of this forum... but I think I'm wrong.
A forum called Schleich choosing a Papo animal as the figurine of the year it will be a big honour to Papo! I think that Schleich will be not very happy when an important forum of Schleich collectors is choosing a Papo animal as the best of 2010!
And that was an idea to put this forum in brands mind. Don't forget, much more controversial more known.
Torben, I'm still seeing all news from 2010 and making my choices!!!

I knew you'd answer this way :)
I don't have anything against the current name except one thing: if we want to do, so to say, offical activity someday, we need a more neutral name. The lnik could be left the same, but the heading of the forum might be changed than.

I agree with you about Bufallo! And it's very nice to see someone choosing a figurine from a very new brand! But CollectA is still very unknown from collectors and I think that the papo tigress will win.

Hi all,

how i said Schleich was my first animals, but i´m not married with Schleich. Papo and Safari made excellent figures too, i love them. I believe that Papo could win the title with the animal of the year.

But the name schleichtiersammler will not be changed.

Giving Papo figure of the year is fine!Because comparing Papo to Schleich, for the most part Papo figures are more refined(less bulkier looking) and have a more realistic look to them(especially their big cats, even look at the Papo Kudu, very artistic as well as detailed).

Torben

... I think:

1. It,s not need to change name forum, besides it,s not correct to Torben too. It,s his site and his right to do this way. Wink
2. It,s not correct to knock brands heads together. So Papo has the best big cats, but for example zebras and geraffes are low any criticism. The same animals of Schleich 2010 season (zebras, geraffes) are the best of all without question. Collecta has the nice birds (at first the best swan) and etc.
3. The better model of year need to choose in the model lines of EACH brand because EACH brand has nice figurine in different nominations!
4. By the way - may be to make some nominations (cats, birds, hoofed animals, reptiles and etc.)? Laughing Laughing Laughing

1. It,s no need to change name forum, besides it,s no correct to Torben too. It,s his site and his right to do this way.
2. It,s no correct to knock brands heads together. So Papo has the best big cats, but for example zebras and geraffes are low any criticism. The same animals of Schleich 2010 season (zebras, geraffes) are the best of all without question. Collecta has the nice birds (at first the best swan) and etc.
3. The better model of year need to choose in the model lines of EACH brand because EACH brand has nice figurine in different nominations!
4. By the way - may be to make some nominations (cats, birds, hoofed animals, reptiles and etc.)?


I agree with Sergey ~ not that I am taking sides ~ :)

If we were to do a survey or vote on the best brands/company - they should be each figure....best giraffe, best tiger, best buffalo, best swan...individually. It is the fair way. Being considered "the best" doesn't mean much if a company only makes 15 figures a year (just making up a number) in comparison to another company that comes out with 100 new figures a year. If only 5 are "the best" of company #1 while the company #2 has 50 that are "the best". Does this make sense? scratch (I apologize if it is confusing to those that English isn't their first language) :) Are we seriously going to take an online survey? Line up the figures...one from each company... it would be fun! cheers ~ Sue

A forum called Schleich choosing a Papo animal as the figurine of the year it will be a big honour to Papo! I think that Schleich will be not very happy when an important forum of Schleich collectors is choosing a Papo animal as the best of 2010!..
By the way, why should it be definitely Papo? Wink
As to me, the best figurine of 2010 is Collecta's Cape buffalo! Very Happy

I think every brand has its "no. 1" figurine... Papo tigress with cub, CollectA cape buffalo, Schleich eating zebra (for me), Safari Ltd. tapir and Bullyland... well... I don´t like Bullyland so... everyone wins cheers cheers Very Happy

Using numbers as Sergey:
1. I never said to Torben change the name of this forum...
2. I prefer only one figurine to be choosenand that idea was not mine but I agree.
3. That idea is very nice to Torben forum, some other sites of figurines are present in development of figurines and why not this one that is the best of all, Torben?
4. I love Schleich but we have to recognise that other brandsare doing a very nice job, and Wild life of Papo has an average quality superior to Schleich and CollectA is growing.
5. Is the perfect time to do a tread about 2010 figurine because the end of the year will be very buzzy!
6. The best 2010 insect is a CollectA one (it was the only one!)
So is acceptable some cathegories: wild life, forest, horses, dogs and cats and dinos...

Disagree! Papo may have a couple of figures of superior quality, but the highest average quality is and has ever been at the Schleich side.

Initially When I suggested most popular of new animal for 2010 and just wanted to find out which animal stand out among the 2010 releases.

My thoughts that came across my mind
Wild life
Farm life
Forest life
Sea life
insect
Dinosaur

Regardless of brand or any company produces more or less & just made it simple.

Schleichtiersammler.forumieren should remain and not to be changed and further more we are not running a business or doing "Branding strategics" for the future. Let keep it simple!

In a Safari site that I don't remember the name... perhaps Safaritieresambler or so... I said that Schleich was the most popular among collectors and children. Almost everybody in that site was desagreeing...
I have no doubt about it... Schleich is the most popular. And the reason because I love this site it's because it is simple... so don't forget, brands will ever make toys because children love toys, some collectors love toys, I love toys too!
And for brands Toys R Us!!! :)

...Ok, very nice! Wink ...But may be one more nomination - "birds". Are you agree that "a tiger" is not the same " a swan" or "an owl"?... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Congrats on those two great additions Martin, i love the tigress! Very Happy

Of course we can't and shouldn't change the name of this forum, as it is Torbens forum, and he is know as "The Schleichtiersammler" everywere!
I don't think that everyone is collecting Schleich in the first place, but most of us have a lot of them anyway... Cool

I think, when we decide here, to make the Papo tigres with young the best figurine for 2010, that wouldn't be bad, not even on this forum, as we should wake up some of the manufacturers to make better models in some cases! Rolling Eyes Cool

Schleich's figures need better paint jobs as well as more attention to detail with sculpting(too bulky need to be more refined looking).

Great figurines!!!
I'm very happy with Papo choices, it is some hard to find but 'til now, I'm very happy!!!
I think that my future orangutan will be this Papo. What do you think about it, Martin?
My bison will be a CollectA and the tapir I still don't know...
