Nice striped cats, Doc! I remember you asking me to show the made in China and Portugal variations of Schleich tapir and I lost the post. However, I forgot that I traded the China version so I cannot take a picture comparing them. I know someone posted it on forum already, so if I find that picture I'll share with you. cat pig elephant

Great post indeed my old friend!(not in years but in time, haha)! cheers
But i can assure you, as you will have more and more Schleichs through your fingers, you will always find new variations, already in countries of production, but from the same country to, as they change little by little almost every year, as task that never will end if you want them all! Shocked affraid cheers study

Thanks Andreas and Willy Very Happy


@Willy - you r right , I target only on the marked variation models and the rest , I get just by mere co-incidence sunny I enjoy the pleasure of having doubles and triplets of a particular model that I like so much . In such case , I would like to have mild variations of that model instead of having the ditto copy Basketball

I do like to have as many variations as possible , ONLY in the antique schleichs and older ones . I am not so keen on variations of the new and future . If , by chance I get, why not Basketball cherry sunny

Yes, i am with you Doc!
Specially in those older and retired Schleich models they can be interesting.
The models that have combinations in colours, like the old red deer and specially the old wolf seem to have endless combinations.
But a few are ok to me, but not all there is.
In case of variations, you should talk to Susanne, she is the queen of variations around here, specialised in Bullyland! Sad(o)):

Thanks Roger for the link . I really enjoyed viewing the tapirs. I feel some of the Chinese versions are a step ahead than their German , Portugal versions in painting and color details . Isn't it ?

My latest darlings Vietnamese pig variants . I bought the right one [ China ] way back in 2006 . His German brother [ lt. with white tusk ] joined only last year with him .

Thanks for showing Doc. Actually, some of Chinese versions are better than their German or Portuguese relatives. However refering to tapirs I find the Portuguese version better. The detail of the white color outlining the eyes to highlight them can result atractive but it doesn't exist in real tapirs. I like some charm and character but I appreciate a lot when a figure can work as an educational tool showing the real characteristics of a species. Very Happy
For example, I like best the Chinese jaguar than the German but best the German falcon than the Chinese. So it is hard to create a rule. Very Happy

Thanks Andreas , Willy and Roger Very Happy

@Roger - I agree with your point 100 % I like your observation Sad(o)):

I was about to tell the same thing that some Chinese versions are few steps ahead than their German and Portugal versions . [ esp. in terms of vibrant , bright painting job done on the China models ] and vice versa

As a matter of fact , I would say the bright catchy colours give more presence to the China versions . One best example I have is the retired Fleckvieh calves .

Look at this pic. What I observed was the sculpt details were bit more clear in German version [ left one ]
On the other hand , painting is damn good in the Chinese version [ right one ] undoubtedly . Neverthless , both cuties are my 2 eyes . I love them equally .

And 2 VIPs reached my house , after my very very long hunt for them . They are none other than my bubbly Boxer bros . sunny cheers bounce

Yes, I was starving for them for months together . And NOW , they are here with me after a prolonged hunting .

The brown and white guy arrived from South Africa just a yr. back . I bought him for mere 4 $ [ believe me pls. Laughing ]
The full brown guy reached me recently . Aren't these brothers astonishingly cute ? I am extremely delighted to have this pair in my canine section .

Opportunity knocked my door to acquire these wonderful treasures once again . In fact , I created an opportunity to acquire these immortal oldies Goldies cheers sunny Very Happy

I always have a very special soft corner for the Schleich cattle . So , why to miss the fantastic chance of grabbing these charming bovines Basketball

Young Fleckvieh bull , made in Germany [ rt. side ] variant added to his counterpart [ lt. China ].

[ Guys , there is an interesting history in acquiring these 2 bullies . Way back in 2003 [ my first Schleich purchase] , I bought the Chinese version and now , in 2013 , I grabbed this German version bull from the same shop . In between , when ever I visited the shop for consecutive years , he was starring at me desperately to take him to my house. As my choice of animals were different every time , I just neglected him .One more surprising thing is that he was the only piece in the stock for years together . I am very lucky I got him Very Happy ]

And now , he is very proud to be with me in my menagerie Laughing Look at my China bull , he is so excited to have a company of his own sunny

Wonderful variations, all of them Sad(o)):
And some extremely rare ones Shocked

But I must say that the young Fleckvieh bulls take the gold medal for both rarity, looks and astoinishing history cheers
It was so good that you took the German one with you home at last , they both look very happy Very Happy

I am sure these figures were making ugly faces to all kids that wanted to buy them just because they were waiting for you lying patiently on shops. Laughing
Those are great stories and nice variations. Very Happy
