Here's the deal...
These companies, PLEASE do it right or don't do it all! A lot of these figures could be so much better! But because they lag on the paint jobs, the figures aren't up to par!
Harriet's Wisent repaint is a fine example of that! She did a MUCH better job than Schleich! The Przewalski's horse needs the "HT" (Harriet Touch)!

Hmmm, how many hours did it take Harriet to paint the wincent scratch
And how many could they sell at the price it would be then ?

I think comparing Harriet`s repaint to a mass produced plastic toy it is like comparing a poster to real, original art, Wink Very Happy

Of course you can get perfectly painted figueres, but you have to pay then , just look here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Shocked Rolling Eyes

Nice collection, I like to see your figurines by continents!

I also think the Schleich Przewalsky has a bit ugly paintjob, and I was planning to buy one and repaint it. But I have no time xD

No, they CAN do it right if they choose too! Example, look at the Papo hippo, that paint job is near perfect! So if they can do it for their hippo, why can't they do it for their mandrill?

I think most of us agree with you Balti, but i think that is not realistic... Laughing
The companies will never do like we want, maybe not nice, the do it the easiest way for their production. Crying or Very sad
If this means a worser paintjob, because it is cheaper, then they will choose that way... Rolling Eyes
