As to my Top-10, it has evolved since last year and now it looks like this:
1. Gaur - those abundant tiger figurines should have prey!:smile: apart from that, gaurs are really gorgeous
2. Guereza (aka Eastern Black-and-white Colobus) - there have to be African monkeys (not apes) in Schleich line-up cause somebody must be put on the branches of Schleich acacia and baobab!!!:wink: And guereza is pretty large and beautiful to become a figurine.
3. Great hornbill - gorgeous large-sized bird, and quite common for S.-E. Asia
4. Clouded leopard - another beautiful tree-dweller
5. Anoa - rare and beautiful, it could be the first rep of Sulawesi wildlife among all the toy animal line-ups

6. Howler monkey - at least one monkey species is a must for making a S. American display!
7. Lion-tailed Macaque - great looking monkey for Indian wildlife displays
8. Asiatic black bear - it's simply a matter of taste, I like this animal very much
9. Sun Bear - the same as with #4
10. Mountain Sheep (Argali or Mouflon) - the same as with #8

By the way, it'd be cool if everyone posting his/her wish-list would give comments - why does he/she prefer these species.

Hi Kyrill, nice to see you here from time to time! Very Happy

Well, it is hard to make a top 10 every time, specially when you see the lists of other collectors all the time, which give you new idea's every time....
Which manufacturer makes them is not important, but that they make it is the thing here!
Here is my list;

Bongo(of course)
Elen Antelope(nobody made it...)
Gaur(thanks Kyrill, i like those huge muscular bulls!)
Banteng(as we are in the wild cattle already...)
Clouded Leopard(there is just one to my knowledge...)
Sumatran Tiger(this species looks awesome!, a sub-species of the Malayan Tiger or Corbetti Tiger)
Pere David Deer(everybody forgot this strange looking and rare deer)
Boto/Amazon-/Orinoco Dolphin
Yangtze River Dolphin(very rare, and almost extinct)

And that is ten already, as i could name dousands of other species tooo, but ok, for now these would make me happy.

Hi, Willy! Nice to see you too.
I see that you are fond of rare species, but that's not my case.
I prefer animals that are more or less common for a definite region or biotope. Cause for me the most important thing here is zoogeographical representation of species.

Hi Kyrill, yes, that is true.
I like to see the species that are rare and not often made indeed.
I still know about your displays, so i understand your point of view of course. :)

Ok, let's game with the SChleich 2011.

I already play the game with the Papo 2011 and you will find my choice's explanation here Very Happy : [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So, what about the Schleich ? No big cats or reptiles because IMHO they are surpassed by Papo.

1- A bongo, because we need a bongo, more than that we need a bongo tribe so the Schleich one could be the little chubby of the band Laughing
2- A red riverhogs tribe because I love red river hogs and the Schleich warthogs are really awesome
3- A new cape buffalo because I need more of them and I love the first one.
4- A gaur because it is a rarely seen animal and SChleich is good on the bulky side of the force Very Happy
5- A takin because it is a fantastic animal and I'm sure Schleich could do one as good as their retired rocky mountains goat.
6- A Javan rhino, from the same sculptor than the Indian one
7- An Asiatic wild ass, same sculptor than the zebras or the Poitou donkey
8- An Indus river dolphin or a spectacled porpoise
9- A pigmy hippopotamus
10- NO DINOSAURS ( not as accurate as the SAFARI and not as fine as the Papo) but some marine reptiles from the sculptor who made the shonisaurus, elasmo and kronosaurus.

1. Lionhead rabbit - I own a lionhead rabbit, a real one, and I haven't seen a model of this breed before.

2. Maned Wolf - I'd love a Maned Wolf model that is easy to get. Such elegant looking creatures.

3. Coati - I think they are really interesting animals and I haven't seen a model that is "right"

4. A rearing Zebra Stallion - they've done it with the horses so why not a Zebra ? :)

5. Gerenuk - I love these danity looking ungulate. To my knowledge, the big brands have not yet created one ?

6. Red River Hogs - What's more to say ? They are so cute !

7. More Przewalski horses - Their current one, in my eyes, isn't a true representation of one. Winter coat maybe but I'd like one in a summer coat.

8. Blackbuck - We need more ungulates !

9. Takin - Something different looking. I bet many people do not know of Takins so it would be a new collectible for them.

10. Saiga - Again, something different looking and I find them cute ^_^

Of course, you are right Kyril scratch

And since Schleich sculptors seems unable to do serious research when they make extinct animals like dinos, This rhino could have the look of a pig with two horns Laughing

Well, when I was a child I used to know what was a pigmy hippo and I could bought the Starlux one so... 2010's children can still learn something or maybe they already know Wink

I'd like to see a North American Elk, especially the bull elk bugling - they are as big as a cow (good eatin too :) ) I would also like to see a Big Horn sheep, they could do a younger male and an older male as the horns wrap around and get bigger as they age. The ewes have little horns too. In fact how about the whole herd?
Oh, and lets not forget the Yeti! Laughing

I was disappointed in the size of the newest Great Dane. I can see their reasoning in having them fit with the people, but I was looking forward to it being the same ratio as the other dogs ~ I wanted them to tower over the shorter dogs Sad

You're right. Gerenuk is way too slender and has too thin horns for us to dream to see it one day in Schleich line-up...

Those would be great figures too. But I think only Safari among the majors may produce such figures - they favor rare species.

Hi everybody. I'm a fanatic Schleich-collector from Finland and I just got registered over here :) I collect mainly horses and their accessories like riders and stuff.
To stick to the topic, here's my very horsey wish list for next year:
- Thoroughbred mare and foal
- American Bashkir Curly, a family would be awesome...
- Welsh mare/stallion/both
- Przewalski foal
- Shagya Arabian
- Fjord Horse mare
- a sort of carriage, like the ones you see at weddings and stuff Very Happy I actually had a dream once that Schleich made this! I hope it's a premonition, after all I have witch blood from my mother's side... (some of her ancestors supposedly were accused of sorcery and burnt in the 16th century or something!)

Welcome, Siobhan. I believe Schleich is very, very good with horse models. The horse I'd love to see is extinct - the Eohippus, or one of its relatives. For non-horse figurines, I'd go for an aardvark, capybara, opossum, platypus and wombat.

That's very true schleich61! Compared to any other maker I think Schleich makes the most realistic and natural-looking horses. I think Bullylands look a tiny bit clumsy and the Safaris' colour isn't very natural. But this is just my opinion so no need to feel insulted anyone who has them (or put up a verbal attack like one collector at a Finnish forum...) Breyers are stunning, but it's too difficult to get them in Finland. 2010 was a good Schleich-horse year (so many new models came out!) especially cos I had hoped for an Andalusian mare and foal, a Friesian stallion and a pony tack set for so long! Let's hope this year will be good too :)

Welcome here Siobhan!
We love to see new members here! cheers

It is like Torben(admin) said, everybody has its own opinion and insightes about some models, so feel free to say what you think about them
But i collect all brands of any animal-figurine, so i have some Bullyland horses too.
The oldest models are a little bit playfull, but the newer models are quit good i think, even better then the Papo's...
Tomorrow when i have more energy, i wil put some pics of the Bullyland horses that i own here, and then you can see some old ones, and the much better new ones... :)

I don't understand why so few companies produce aardvarks(the Safari one is on the list,but it's HUGE)!!!
It should be a very popular animal since the cartoon release of ''The Ant and the Aardvark''(in the late 60's):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It was published in Germany,England,the USA,Romania,Austria and Italy just from what I know(or seen on TV). Very Happy

I'm a collector from Portugal. I collect different animals to show to blind people but in fact, I'm collecting wild felines.
I'd like to see:
new jaguar
new red fox
new asian elephant
new hippopotamus
new walrus
real king-penguins chiks
A real female ostrich
a caracal
a serval
a clouded leopard
an iberian lynx
a snow leopard
I think that the felines are more interesting from Papo but I'd like to see a lynx and a cheetah from CollectA which last models are improoving and the scale feet correctly with Schleich.

Clouded leopard is a potential mega-hit among collectors - every second one puts it in his/her wish-list (including me).
As to the iberian lynx, I think Schleich and Papo won't make it cause they already have lynxes in their ranges and the manufacturers don't seem to be into subspecies. Eurasian variant of lynx has a much wider audience, as kids in many countries could call it a native critter of their state.

You're right but the question is what we would like to see and not what is expectable.
Schleich lynx is from 2010 and isn't absolutly unexpectable to see an Iberian. Papo lynx has not the same quality of other papo felines.
I'd like to see CollectA making an Iberian Lynx.
The only thing that is not right is that Iberian are not subspecies of a lynx, it is a different species.
And it's a wonderful one very popular in Portugal and Spain where they are almost extinct.

First welcome to the forum Roger! :)

About the lynx is correct, the species is just too far off for a sub-species, but very very closely related of course!
Both lynx-species evolved from the Pleistocene lynx-species Lynx issiodorensis.
It is thought that there are only 84 left in the wild, so they are highly endangered!

The Iberian or Pardel-lynx as we call it here, is the most beautifull of them all i think.
The old Schleich model resambles it more or less, at least in the colouration, and the way the spots are on the model... Cool
The Iberian lynx does stil live in small seperated populations in the south-west of the Iberic peninsula.
There are 2 populations in Andalucia, one in Castilla-De Mancha, and the biggest population lives in the National Parc Donaña.
Before agrigaculture land took their habitat, the lived over the whole Iberic peninsula, in the south of France, and even in Italy.

I just noticet Kiryuha asked for comments as to why we want Schleich to make certain figures. So here's my answers.

-American Bashkir Curly is a very unique and attractive-looking horse because they are curly-haired like the name suggests. I recently read an article about them and there's even more interesting and unique stuff about them than just the curliness.
-The latest English Thoroughbred retired it seems ages ago and they deserve to be a part of the product range because they are the forefathers of so many other breeds! Besides last year there were so many Baroque-type horses (Andalusians, Lusitano) so now would be the time to make something different :) Not that I don't like the Baroque horses, I adore them.
-Welsh (all the four types) is my favourite pony breed and it would make a very beautiful model, whichever of the four types it would be. It would go nicely with the new pony riding set :)
-Fjord Horse is another one that hasn't been updated for ages. They are also very unique-looking and therefore would make a nice model.
-A Przewalski foal would definitely look adorable. Besides my Przewalski mare looks a bit lonely, being the only not-domesticated horse in my lot!
-Shagya Arabian would represent Hungary, since Schleich hasn't made any Hungarian horses yet. They are also very, very beautiful, combinations of the best parts of Arabian and European horses.

I would love to see an Arabian, Siobhan. Or maybe several new ones!

I could easily pick 10 horses that I would like Schleich to make.

Some of their horses are very good and then others, are good, but don't seem to fit the breed that they are given. For instance, the latest Quarter horse doesn't look much like one.

I would love a Polo Pony. I know they differ in size and colour so they could also be shown as different breeds, if you are into model horse showing or photo showing, or easy repaints into other light breeds.

Gelderlander - One of my favourite breeds and I don't have a single one, except a Breyer.

Cleveland Bay - Just a strong and powerful horse and sadly very endangered. I have a model of this breed, a Breyer, but I would like one in smaller scale.

Suffolk Punch - Another gorgeous heavy horse who is sadly endangered. They come in 6 different shades of Chestnut, Maybe Schleich could try and do all six ? Wink

Marwari - Something a little bit different :)

Akhal-Teke - A light horse with an iridescent coat. Would be nice to have a paint job with a little bit of a shimmer.

American Shetland Pony - a lot different from their wild British cousins, still small but of a slimmer frame and usually a clipped coat.

A warmblood horse, without a brand, which could be a number of warmblood breeds depending on the colour.

Tersk - I'm not usually one for Arabian looking horses but Tersks are just that little bit different. Would be limited on colours, if they want to stay true to the breed, but they've got that little bit of flare that sets them off.

Pony - Just a trotting pony. This could be done in so many colours and wouldn't be tied to a certain breed. It could be a grade pony or just a back yard pony. The friendly little ponies that are usually found at riding stables or roaming in fields.

Those would be the 10 that I would pick.

Your list is very interesting Rio. The Cleveland Bay, for instance, is probably only seen in pictures in books here in Finland so it would be cool to see it as a model at least!
I'll add one more horse to my list so I'll have full ten too: the Peruvian Paso. There aren't any South American horses yet, except the Falabella and it's a very very small sample of all the interesting breeds of that continent Very Happy Just imagine that one with a loooong mane and tail, and sculpted in its unique way of moving!
All of the four Welsh categories would make a very nice package so then my list would have 13 items. But the longer the list, the bigger the likelihood of getting at least one of your wishes fulfilled, right? Very Happy

I second a Suffolk Punch. Yes, some of schleich's horses aren't very good, like the Tinker stallion, his neck I thought was strange and I hate his hoofs/legs. Whereas the mare was gorgeous and the foal was really cute.

PostSubject: what will Schleich introduce in 2011 ?    Sat Sep 04, 2010 2:04 pm

Hello, my friends!
In recent years the first days of September became special for me and for many collectors who were drawn together at the LG Forum. Because it is the time to ask the most vital question for all the collectors: what will Schleich introduce in 2011?
Last year the first to share the list of new Schleich was Daniel, who [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] unusually early - on October, 15. In 2008 the “harbinger” was our friend Drnarayanan who shared the list of new Schleich stuff on December, 8. In 2007 we got the info also in December.

So let's share here any speculations, rumours and actual information we might get on the new Schleich 2011 range!

P.S.: I’d like to admit that we have lots of threads going for what we would like to see (for example [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). For now let's use this one for the things we really think we are likely to see.

Good to have thread like this also! I'm just gonna speculate about horses though, because I'm not serious about any other Schleichs so I haven't much to speculate about them.
In recent years there have come out quite many stallions that don't have their mares yet, like the Mustangs, Tennessee Walking Horse, Palomino, Pinto and Lusitano. I'm pretty sure that some of them will get themselves a girlfriend next year! And maybe some new foals in the already existing breeds. They might also make another yearling, like the Schwarzwald one, now that they finally realized that it's possible to make other models than little foals and fully grown horses.

Hi smhilin,

welcome to our forum. We hope you have a good time here. Do you have some insider informations about Schleich 2011. It seems so.

I did not give any thoughts about this theme yet, and it seems that most of your lists are more like wishes then real guesses what comes in 2011, but that i can understand.
I have one quit secure guess, a Shetland pony and foal.
See the pic...

I agree that Zebra lying and Okapi female and calf are quite probable.
But why would Schleich make new Asian elephant and White Rhinos, when all of their competitors already offer such figures in their line-ups? That'd be not economically efficient, as I may reckon.
To see a Bongo will be great, but it's not a savanna critter, so his chances are mediocre.
As to the Water Buffalo - maybe, but I doubt.

I disagree, the above lists look much more like what we expect to see rather than what we want to see Cool There are no sable antelopes, gerenuks, ocelots, clouded leopards and other so much sought-after stuff. Very Happy
