I need to study it! scratch study I don't have Paypal so EBAY will not be a solution for me. As a Portuguese brand I need to contact them to see if they are distributing also in Portugal or mostly in Germany as usual. I'm very happy with that news you shared with us and I hope M&B continues with new animal figures. bounce Very Happy

WOW! New fish ! I can`t wait bounce tongue

Roger, they DO take bank transfer ( I checked), but I think you can get the ducks cheaper if you find them locally, don`t you ?
It could be very interesting if you find s seller in Portugal Very Happy

"...und bringt teilweise "neue" Tierfiguren heraus, die mit den alten Schleich Formen hergestellt werden. Diese Figuren haben eine neue Bemalung erhalten."

If I understand this German text well, M+B uses the old Schleich molds (and new painting) to produce "new" figures under M+B name? I am not Schleich expert, so please can You - more experienced collectors - confirm if these water fowl birds have their counterparts in any older Schleich figures?

No, they do not ! Wink
And several of the whales and sharks are not Schleich moulds either, - or the dogs.
Actually M&B has a looooong range of comic figures which is their main line of products Very Happy

Susanne is right, Schleich used original M&B moulds and introduced them in their range. Mainly those from sea life. What happens is that we know better Schleich brand and think in these replicas as originally from Schleich when they are really from Maia & Borges.
Figures like the dogs, penguin, otters, puffin and these new birds were never used by Schleich.

A good example is the tropical fishes, they were originally produced by M&B and then introduced in Schleich range with different painting.
Curiously this year Schleich descontinued the remaining original M&B moulds from their range and we see a completly new line of birds from the Portuguese brand.
I hope it means that M&B is trying to see how their animal lines work in the market again. I wish all luck to these brand and congratulate it for introducing such an interesting series with some unusual species. If that line goes well maybe the brand will surprise us in near future? bounce bounce
I think that serious Schleich collectors will have an uncomplete collection if M&B figures are not present in their collections. Not only because their moulds were an important part of some Schleich series as well as M&B sculptors contributed largely to the Schleich design we appreciated some years ago. Very Happy

WOW Shocked

Thankyou for all this WONDERFUL information, Roger, I am very exited to know this !!!!
I knew, of cours, that the cooperation between M&B and Schelich goes a long way back, but not that Schleich borrowed the moulds from M & B .
It makes good sence, though ! Why would Schleich make a completely new range of 6 models, and then scrab it after only 2 years? Moulds are enormously expensive Rolling Eyes scratch

Ohhh, yes, I hope and pray that M&B will get enormously successful ! cheers

Yvett, that's exactly what I wanted to see. M&B in comparison with Schleich figures. Now we have a much better idea of what they are. :) Thanks! flower
I'm very happy that they decided to introduce a line that mixes some common species with some unusual species. That's a good strategy. Very Happy
Susanne, you are very welcome and I think that you has an enthusiast of this brand you will feel happy with some more hot news that I suspect we will receive very soon. Suspect IdeaWink
I hope every members will enjoy the news. Laughing
By the way, don't forget that the 6 M&B tropical fishes are in the market again. bounce bounce

Susanne is right, Schleich used original M&B moulds and introduced them in their range.
I think that serious Schleich collectors will have an uncomplete collection if M&B figures are not present in their collections. Not only because their moulds were an important part of some Schleich series as well as M&B sculptors contributed largely to the Schleich design we appreciated some years ago. Very Happy

Roger, I think the new M + B animal figurines are generally excellent. However, Schleich and M + B are separate and distinct. Six sealife figurines were cross-licensed by Schleich, have Schleich numbers and are recognized as part of the Schleich sub-cosmos. Of course they have "shared" many molds, but that has been done many times by many different sets of manufacturing firms.

That being said, I think the new M + B animal figurines are better in design and execution than most of what Schleich has on shelves now. Maybe we can convince Schleich to "borrow" some of M + B's design department... Laughing ?!!

Susanne, I don't mind to see them again although Yvett already gave us great pictures. We find always something new! bounce Very Happy
Congratulations and it looks I'll receive them in near future. Very Happy

@ Phil, what I call design in this kind of figures is not the ability of making a figure as it looks in real but the ability of making it atractive without distorting the idea of a realistic figure in the most common conception of general customers. confused
Schleich was very good in that point. I'll wait my M&B to judge better. :)
Actually I'm very happy seeing another brand making animal figures, with respectable quality, giving us some unusual species like the divers for example. A company with a huge story and of course I'm a little prouder because it is Portuguese. Very Happy

Thankyou, Roger, I am still trying to take pictures, buuuh, there must be something wrong with...the camera Shocked Laughing Laughing

Here is a scan of the nice tag they have.
I was trying to find the Danish names for them...hmmm, perhaps M&B should find somebody who checks the spelling in the future Wink
