PostSubject: M&B, Meeting new dogs   Fri Oct 22, 2010 2:48 pm

This morning a parcel with my new Maia + Borges dogs arrived.
While the elder residents went to say hello, I managed to take some photoes without them noticing Laughing

The little Westie bravely kept his tail up, even if the new guys are much bigger

Thanks Susanne for taking your time to show us these great pictures!
We know there are some dogs lovers and experts among our members. Maia & Borges will appreciate your opinions, good or not. The most important is that everybody gives a honest opinion as usual.
That line is from 1998 and judging the new Lake and River birds series that M&B launched this year, it is visible an increasing in painting quality. The material is similar to Schleich and figures are somewhat larger as you can see! :)
Thanks to Maia & Borges for letting us contribute in some of their decisions and an antecipated thanks to all of you. cheers

Congrats Susanne, and hooray for Roger. He must have made good friends with someone from Maia & Borges! :)

I like these dogs. The cocker spaniels have a very unique charm about them. I like the eskimo dog, too! :)

Congratulations Susanne for Your lovely new dog! I like him a lot cat Especially size comparison with Your wonderfully charming cat who is enjoying the sun Wink cat

My opinion about dog figures may not be really "expert's opinion" because I don't really collect dogs, having only 3 in total in whole collection. However I do like dogs very much Very Happy And about figures. I think half of the range is very cute and few others may not become best sellers Wink
I would vote for producing again: Doberman, Malamute (possibly in more contrast painting), Alsatian, St Bernard (very cute Razz ) and Boxer? :)

I'm not sure about Collie, Spaniels and Rottweiler scratch :)
Collie is extremely cute but not as realistic as others I think scratch

And wow! Another brand want to listen to us! Hurray! cheers cheers cheers

Great pictures! Thank you Susanne!

I like many of these a lot. I would really like to get the Doberman and the Boxer in particular and would love the opportunity.

I love the Doberman, German Shepherd and rottweiler. I think it good be a good idea of relaunching the whole line again. As Roger were saying about the paint job & material will be similar to Schleich, I am looking forward too. If being thinking of re-launch & are they going to introduces more breed?

It looks like a nice line. I think the spaniels and the collie are not as good as the others. I like the Alsatian, malamute, boxer, and doberman the best.

I just realized these must have been done by the same person that sculpted the birds - look at the texturing, it's really similar!
The more brands available, the better - so a relaunch would be great. I would definitely want the dobie!

I love those all but St. Bernard is the best, he looks very real.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

GSD, Doberman and that malamute looking dog are also nice.
Collie is really cute but there is something wrong with his head, maybe it is too small. I like their poses, they are not "just standing".

I would love to see more doggies from Maia & Borges. cheers

I hope it's not too late to post here.  I've just been introduced to this brand and I have to say I've been very impressed.  It's true that while they're not the most accurate figures, they're extremely charming and beautiful.  I would love to see these dogs relaunched.

The dobie is by far my favorite!  I was hoping he would be a female, but I still love his air of dignity and grace, just like the real thing.  He may be one of the best Doberman figures available.

I love the Shepherd, Rottweiler, and huge St. Bernard.  The last one is such an impressive looking figure.

The weakest one I think is the collie since he looks so uncharacteristically angry, but still, a fantastic collection overall!  I really do hope we'll be seeing them again.

It is never late to post on a STS topic. Very Happy ... and your enthusiasm about these dogs of my country's brand, is absolutely genuine! It was also nice to revisit this topic and to see a wonderful creature. cat
