PostSubject: CollectA old Arabian horses, Tennessee Walker foals, Lusitanos and Red Angus bull!   Sun Jun 24, 2012 12:23 am

This week saw more CollectA models enter my collection, more horses and a Bull  cheers

I am not usually an Arabian horse fan but I really love the CollectA Arabian. Maybe because it's not as dainty as most other Arabians but this fellow is chunky  Laughing

This one is gorgeous, he's not just flat black but has really deep brown hues, I just couldn't pick them up !

And the Red Angus bull. At first I was a little disapointed, only because I thought he would be bigger but he is a strapping chap. And whilst taking his photos, I discovered his gorgeous eyes !

Rio, you have all 4 old CollectA Arabians. These horses had a hard time here in local shops once nobody was buying them. Also their plastic is very hard and break easily.
The 88098 and 88099 are already not in 2011 catalogue. Also as I expect that CollectA will turn in a very collected brand due to their increasing in quality, I believe these horses will turn rare. flower
About the Angus, everybody here loves the Schleich one better but I really think the CollectA is a very good figure. Very detailed, good proportions and a modern concept. :)
Is it a Lusitano a character? Evil or Very Mad Laughing
Congratulations! Very Happy

Beautiful horses Rio! Congratulations!!

Am I right in thinking that the Arabian mold is not by Deborah McDermott? (and that the TW and the Lusitano are by her?) Regardless, I love the Arabian.

Lovely photos!

I agree about the bull, I did take a photo of him next to the Schleich one and there was just no comparision in my eyes. The CollectA one has a lot more detail and reminds me of an Angus bull.

They are characters Laughing The Dun one keeps falling over and the Grey one has already knocked down another of my models Laughing

I'm glad I have all the Arabians cheers

Yes, you are right!

The first few CollectA horses, in 2006, were part of Farm series, later they started their horse series but without a huge success. From 2010 they started cooperating with Deborah that has a completly different style. So they almost have 2 CollectA horses series.

@Rio, you can save easily the drunken Portuguese horses. In local CollectA shops I also noticed that Lusitanos were always falling down but the lady of the shop tried hot water and it worked without damaging the fragile painting of these figures. Very Happy

Hopefully on my next order, I'll be able to get a few more of the older horses, I just love their charm.

Drunken horses Laughing Their show names will have to have alcohol in there some where Laughing

They are all gorgeous cheers

I fully agree with you, Rio, - most of the models of Arabians lack the ballance, strength and nobleness that are so precious about the classic specimens of this ancient breed.
Some of the properties that gave them such enormous stamnia and personality.
These have it cheers
( Even if they turn over their neifghbours Laughing geek )

As far as I remember, there is ( used to be? ) several different lines of the breed from the various areas of its origin, perhaps the more spidery ones are preferred as models Rolling Eyes Laughing

I love that bull also. It is great to see him in your picture, he is so much nicer than in the catalogue.


CONGRATULATIONS, and thankyou for showing flower sunny flower

How did I miss this thread?! Congratulations Rio, they are beautiful, I love the bull. It's funny like Roger said I was one of the ones who didn't like it but seeing your photos I'm curious again, love to see all round photos of it if you ever get the time Very Happy
