Kristie, it's really encouraging that you like the new Panda. I was also dismayed with it when I saw it in the catalog and I haven't yet come around. But the fact that you and many others here seem to like it in person is allowing me to reconsider. Part of my issue is that I thought the Panda they replaced was such a fantastic model. (I'm inclined to think that the now-retired adult Panda will be a much coveted item in about ten years. If I were savvy about these things, I'd buy a couple new ones in the packages and tuck them away unopened. But I just can't do stuff like that.)

So, I wonder what changed people's mind about the new Panda. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's seen it in person and likes it.

I did not know Schleich made a king and emperor penguin! Sorry Kristie I have no idea about the chicks but those penguins are beautiful! Very Happy

PostSubject: What do we call Schleich model number 14618?   Fri Apr 20, 2012 9:12 am

I was under the impression that because they hadn't made any change to the Penguin Chicks figurine, one could really go either way on what you call them. I still see them referred to as the 'King Penguin Chicks' quite regularly and that seems correct.

In the case of the King Penguin, 14617, and Emperor Penguin, 14652, even though the mold seems to be pretty much the same, the paintwork is obviously different so as to reflect the difference between the King and Emperor Penguins. As indicated here, Schleich has given them separate identifying model numbers.

But the model number they used for the Chicks during the year they produced the King Penguin Adult (14617) -- namely, 14618 -- remains the same, even though they now call model number 14618 'Emperor Penguin Chicks' on their website.

I'd be curious to know what the Schleich heavy-weights have to say about this. Do we just go along with Schleich and start calling 14618 'Emperor Chicks' even though in 2010 model number 14618 was a set of King Penguin Chicks?

If we trust Google, they look more like emperor penguin chicks.

Emperor:


King:

So I wonder: did Schleich move so quickly from using their adult mold to make King penguins in 2010 to making Emperor Penguins in 2011 because their figurine for the chicks looked so much more like emperor chicks than king chicks, they had to change it?

There is no question that when the penguin chicks figure was released, Schleich called them "King Penguin Chicks" and they looked exactly like they do now (and exactly like emperor chicks).

I would love to know what goes on behind those closed schleich doors!

haha! This is an ongoing discussion here and I'm usually the one who keeps bringing it up. So if I remember correctly, Schleich released the penguin as an Emperor but it had the wrong coloring so they changed the name to King. Then when the fixed the coloring (took the orange away) went back to calling it an Emperor.

Is that right? bounce

How odd! Then they really did appear to commission a sculpture of a set of Emperor Penguin Chicks from an artist (and paint them accordingly). THEN afterwards they labeled them as 'King Penguin Chicks' (I'm absolutely sure they called that model -- with what are obviously emperor chicks -- 'king penguin chicks'), even though they were clearly not King penguin chicks.

Crazy.

(the pictures Noora put up are completely representative: King penguin chicks look nothing like the Penguin Chicks model Schleich has put out since 2010.)

Yes, so simple, but yet it still confuses me. Of course, it really doesn't take much to confuse me. scratch

But then again, we also just learned that ostriches only have one toenail.

More new additions! The leopard and yak are FINALLY in my collection!





And a meerkat & warthog!


The meerkat and leopard came from a great trade with Daria, and the warthog and yak came from a local shop. :)

Yesterday was a good day in terms of what the mailman brought!

First I got the giraffe family that I accidentally won on Ebay. I have wanted the old giraffe bull for a long time! I found the entire family on auction and ended up getting all three for $13 USD! The bull and the baby are made in Germany, too!


Even though none of them have a smile for me they are still very welcome and exciting additions to my collection!




Here is the Germany baby (on the left) shown with the baby I got from Roger that is made in China.



Also in the mail came the Classics Ibex from Taylor! My Classics collection is growing! He makes number 5 Very Happy


And lastly this little pup...he actually came from the shop where I work. It was the first time I've noticed just how nice his face is! He looks quite eager to please, doesn't he? I love you

Wonderful additions Kristie. I love the old prospector and donkey and the old giraffes and all your other wonderful additions. Your pictures do them so much justice. Thanks for sharing.
