Laughing Laughing They have changed the painting on heaps of models, there are SO many variations, it is unbelievable Laughing

This year they have begun giving new paintings a new item number. I am sure it was a nightmare for the E-sellers, when they used the "official" pictures and had to send other colours to the customers drunken

I will assume the photos are made from models that are prototypes or first run figures that have been finished off and painted by experts on staff at the home office. The retail figures are hand and air brush painted by hourly workers in china

I think it might be because the prototype is painted by someone who a)knows what they're doing, and b)can spend a lot more time painting it than the production crews. From the model horse hobby I know that even the most efficient airbrush artist can just about paint a model from start to finish in one day. In the factory, however, thousands of models have to be turned out each day, and paintjobs have to be simplified as a result. It's a shame when this means losing detail like striped hooves, multicolor eyes, and all the little extras that make a model stand out, but it's probably unavoidable.

you're no doubt right. but it kind of feels like a bait and switch when it's a difference in pattern (striped hooves vs. solid hooves), not just quality of paint job (painstakingly painted stripes vs. 5 models a minute crappy stripes). If the production model doesn't have striped hooves, then don't advertise it with striped hooves. I know sometimes they have to change the design after it's been advertized and is in production, but you'd think they'd have known from the start that they couldn't do stripes on mass production paint jobs.
I don't mean to come down on Papo, but it's always been a head-scratcher for me. scratch

Fast Food restaurant do the same thing, they have a chef spend an hour making a hamburger with the best ingredients and take a picture for the menu board. The burger you get was made in 5 minutes by a 17 yeah old high school drop out with ingredients from there mass production supply chain

I believe that most brands, manufacturers painted a much better models in the catalog than other, so that model has buyers will look more appetizing and They buy it. Very Happy
Schleich does the same. Wink

I wonder if they changed this guy's pose because someone pointed out that the thing he's holding makes it look like he's got a really deformed hand? (Seriously, what is that thing? Antler ice cream?)
Another factor is that some poses are difficult from a molding POV, and most companies for obvious reasons try to avoid models that need to be made in several pieces and joined together (Papo being the exception).
