PostSubject: confusing ebay listing for schleich westie   Sun Jun 24, 2012 5:24 pm

I have a slightly random question. I was a bit confused by this eBay listing

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

Is this an error? This looks like the Bullyland Westie to me (and not the Schleich). Is there an older Schleich Westie I don't know about? (Even if there were, it seems strange to me that it would have the same model number as the Schleich Westie I am familiar with.) Or perhaps I am confused in some other way? I'd be delighted to hear anyone's thoughts.

I found this page on the internet, with three different Westies. I think yours is a bullyland Razz

I also think it is the Bullyland figure. But Schleich name sells better and also are heavier to justify this shipping. Laughing
Let's see what our experts think about it. scratch

I don't really think people in Ebay or internet shops in general care about the brand, or even pay attention to the products sometimes Laughing From the site I get Papo animals, the cheetah is named "leopard". It's a simple mistake, but I find it somewhat funny Laughing

I agree, someone has either got the brand wrong or as Roger says put "Schleich" in the title because it's a better known brand.

thanks everybody. That's what I thought (that it was the bullyland). I'm just surprised at the mistake, since the seller is Gaschers. They probably just put the wrong photo up. I doubt they are dong it intentionally, since they do have the actual Schleich Westie available for sale on their non-eBay website.

Susanne, thank you for the photos! I've been wanting to see a size comparison for the Bullyland Westie. (I was worried he might be too big for my taste; but he looks fine!)

Scott, I believe Bully dogs are in 1:12 scale, so theoretically they fit with traditional Schleich horses. Only recently Schleich started working their dogs in 1:20 scale. Very Happy

Roger is right.
The Schleich dogs were in scale 1 : 12 too from 1994 till 2009, then they made the small ones in 2010, no new ones in 2011, and this year no scale is obvious study

Laughing Laughing You got it right, even if a tiny bit mixed up Wink
I heard that the little dogs from 2010 were made by request from people who wnated some dogs to fit to the horses.

Hmmm, how many pugs run along with the horses ? scratch Laughing
They could have made dalmations, they used to run with horse carriages, - or English Foxhounds. Or...SALUKIS bounce bounce cheers
