Thanks Willy for that site. I did not knew it.

It is so easy to buy from Germany online. And I started with collecting during a holliday in Germany, with made in Germany's. Some Shops in the Netherlands do not even know that they sell the made in China Schleich.

I like to have both the Germany and the China. For some moddels i even found the Germany, China and Portugal version.

The Portugal version is somtimes in stead of the German or China version.
Second hand it is hard to know where which is sold. I ask te seller most of the time.

Nice to know there are so many kindred spirits..... Twisted Evil

Welcome Zwartvoet!
That is correct, most shops don't even know what they are selling indeed, and not only around here.

When i discovered the differences between the models made in China, Germany and Portugal, i started to collect them all too.
I try to have the Germany models in the first place normally.
When not, then the other way around.

The Portugal models are mostly models made only there, but not always as you said.
For secondhand models, i try to look as good on the pictures of the seller as possible, and otherwise i ask them too.
In some cases i buy bigger lots, that have doubles for me sometimes.
When i recieve those lots, i always check the doubles very good, because maybe they are in a better state then the ones i already had, or from another country of production indeed.

When you compare those, you can see the differences between them quit good most of the time, only in some cases not.
The animals that have mainly one colour, tend to have not so much differences.
I remember having 2 black morgan horses from 2 different countries of production, that looked absolutely the same.
But for that, i had 2 animals from the same country that looked very different, so you have to look carefully always.... Shocked

An example for that is the old Indian rhino, both made in Germany.
The oldest greenish ones are much thinner then the later one with white horn, and i don't mean the latest Indian rhino then.
See here on the pics.

Yes, there are some differences between them.

I have the old appalosa horse bothe made in Germany but one of them is more gellow than the other. The old hanoveran mare has different brown versions to.

I think that i have to borrow a camera for pics.... but it is compareble with your pics Willy.

Yes, specially in those "one-coloured" animals, you have more variations, like in the old Hannoveraner mare.
There are more shades of brown possible.

My pics are made with the cam on my cell-phone, 5 MP.

Ok then ZV.
Yeah , it is a shame when you don't have a cam to shoot pics of your stuff.
When i buy a new cell-phone, i always look, if there is a very good camera on it, as i don't have another digital camera too.

There are digital camera's for sale from 70 euro's on that are resonable i think.
But when i buy one, it will be a really good one, that i could use for many years to come, so i have to save money for that. Cool

Great additions Willy. I love going on shopping sprees at the local shops as well. Unfortunately the only 2010 animals here so far are the wolf and the raccoon. Still waiting on the rest to arrive. I have checked 5 stores and that is all I have found locally.

I guess, i will order the new ones in the internet this month... Very Happy cheers

Congratulations new acquisitions and we are pleased that the collection is widening again. And so you have a good scene. Although I live in a big city and close by are even greater this Schleichy can only buy a few large shopping centers. But the prices are 50% higher than the on-line (eg the price the horse is 7.9-9.2 euros). So is the only shop on the on-line or friends the UK (where prices are even lower than in Poland on the on-line) And these are the only models in China.And about Papo or Safari you can only dream.

Thank you Zbyszek!
Here you can buy Schleich, made in China only in the shops.
As i said before, Schleich is expensive here too, the biggest animal figurines are almost 7 euro's a piece.
Of course, the dino's and whales are even more expensive.
Today i had my first lot for april of older Schleichs coming in, i will show pics in this section later on.

PostSubject: The first Schleichs for april 2010 came in...   Thu Apr 22, 2010 3:13 pm

I had these group of 11 older retired Schleichs coming in today.
Some of these are double, so they will be for the trade or sale, and some of them are colour-variations.


The whole lot.

Here with the lighter version i already had, both are made in Portugal.


Here are the both versions of the 14083 African elephant bull, that i already had, both made in Germany.


These are the both colour-versions of the 14039 African elephant calf.


The light-coloured family together...


And here the dark ones...


Here are all 6 together, they are complete again.

And i had these 2 elephants coming in too...


14182 Schleich Young African Elephant, made in Portugal, 2001-2004.


14457 Schleich African elephant calf with ball, made in China, 2004-2005.

Thanks Amy and Phil. :)
Yes, the beaver was one of the best in this lot indeed, i know it is not always easy to get, same as the young brown bear.
We know all, that Schleichs that are only produced for a few years are not as easy to get, but ok, it depends on the production numbers in those years too.
It would be nice to see the production numbers in the next Gaschers Schleich catalogue... Idea , so we know better which items are really rare and hard to get...
And not like the old pinto that is been said to be made only 200 times, which is big rubbish, as they appear to much on ebay and so on.

With all due respect, I don't think that anything in the Gascher's catalogue can be relied on unless verified elsewhere. There are many careless, very obvious errors - just look at the Maia + Borges fremdserie line - they have at least two of the six figures completely wrong.

If I can spot that sitting here in remote Northern California, as a fairly new collector, then it is hard to fathom why they did not realize these mistakes themselves.

PostSubject: The third Schleichs for april 2010 came in...   Fri Apr 30, 2010 1:25 pm

This week i had most of the 2010 Schleich coming in.
I finally had the time and money to buy them... Very Happy
I tried to complete the wild- and forest-life first, but did buy some farm-life too.
They hadn't the new austrich male and the jaguar-cub in store, but ok, maybe next month then...
I ordered them in Germany, but was still surprised that not all of the models were made there.
The Malayan tapir, the yack and lynx with cub were produced in Portugal.
The older and newer model cheetah and the grazing zebra were produced in China, the rest was made in Germany.
Enjoy the pics!


The whole lot together.

13654 Mallard duck male


13655 Mallard ducklings


13656 Mute swan female

13660 Scottish Highlandercalf


13661 Poitou donkey


14143 Cheetahs, the darker one in the back is new


14614 Cheetah female

More to follow in the next part.

Thanks Amy, Phil and Christophe!
There will be a lot more soon! Very Happy

Yes, i agree on that Phil.
This catalogue is nothing more then a vague guide in this field.
I hope, they will make a better version the next time, or they will loose loads of buyers for this so called guide... Shocked
