PostSubject: size comparison between Schleich horses and CollectA horses    Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:32 pm

Hi

I'm new here. I tried search, but failed.

I'm curious about CollectA horse sizes.


For now i have some 30 horses from Schleich and Bullyland. And they fit together well.
I couldn't find much information about CollectA on net.

So it would be very kind, if someone could post some size comparison pictures between Schleich or Bullyland with CollectA adult horse.

Thank you very much.

Welcome Mantis! Very Happy
You can find lots of pictures of CollectA horses under the section [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], anyway it is not easy to find them in comparison with Schleich or Bullyland. It happens because they are roughly the same size and fit nicely. Of course you can find some little differences in size but it also happens when you mix Schleich horses, the scale is not perfect in any brand. Papo, Mojo, Schleich, Bullyland and CollectA work with sizes around 1/20.
I don't collect horses but surely someone will show some comparison pictures with other brands. Very Happy

Hello, Mantis, and wellcome here Very Happy

Roger is right, the CollectA horses fit nicely to Schleich, and to most of the Bullyland-horses. (Some of the retired Bullyland-horses were rather large, and the really old Bullylands were very small.)

CollectA is going to launch some very large horses this year, but it is no problem now, because as far as I know they are not for sale yet Wink

That is the figurine, that really appeals to me. But after all information i could find, it looks like he is a lot bigger (12,7cm tall) than Schleich frisian stallion (11,4cm tall). Sad

I've found a comparison picture with the CollectA and Schleich Frisians, the CollectA is clearly taller but not longer, some experts in horses are explaining me in that tread why are they so different.

PostSubject: Just a quick question... size difference between Schleich horses and CollectA horses ?   Sat Nov 10, 2012 7:39 am

Hello! I didn't know if this should go in Schleich or CollectA but I just decided to put it here. :)
Anyways, I was wondering how much size difference there is between Schleich horses and CollectA horses. Since there are such beautiful CollectA horses this year and last, I was hoping to get them but I would like them to be a similar scale with my Schleich... I don't know anywhere around where I live to get CollectA so I would probably have to order them online and I don't want them to be towering over my other models or anything. :)
Thanks for taking time to read this!!!!
(Pictures would be very much appreciated...)

I merged the topics although it would look strange now and also Susanne linked it. Anyway that's the same subject. Very Happy
I don't have a single CollectA horse, only Schleich, Papo and Mojo.
Anyway, as I explain previously, CollectA are in the same scale but very differently sculpted. Usually they have longer legs what makes them taller. But heads and body length are usually somewhat similar.
Susanne's picture is a good example but it was interesting to see comparisons between same breed figures. Very Happy

There are awful pictures (I took them under very low artificial light, rather than sunlight), but they will hopeful give you a further idea of size. Susanne's picture is much better.

Here is the old retired Schleich Thoroughbred next to the new CollectA Thoroughbred released this year (2012):

Here is the Thoroughbreds again, with the Papo Thoroughbred:

And here is CollectA's "balking" Quarter Horse, also just released next to the older version of the Schleich Quarter Horse. You can see that the CollectA would be taller if it were standing normally.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I'll try to take some better pictures later. It would be nice if people kept posting comparisons shots. It seems like this could be a useful thread. Comparisons between the Schleich and CollectA horses seems to be a recurring question.

Does anyone know how big the new Arabian mares next to the old schleich ones are? My mom ordered me the white mare and I am so worried shes going to be a monster lol! I cant use my 2 collect a fresians because they are too tall,they just sit on my shelf.
I would also like to see a picture of the Tenn Walking Stallion next to any schleich,my mom also ordered me the palomino one.
Those are the 2 out of all I ordered that I was thinking would be the tallest ones. I hope I don't have 2 Godzilla horses under the tree this year. I want to be able to actually used them in my barns without making the schleich look like ponys Laughing Mad Wink

I don't have them but googling I found that CollectA Friesian is 5" tall while the new Arabian mare is 4" tall. It is a huge difference so I believe it is sized like Schleich Arabians. Anyway, it is a magnificent mare and you'll love it. Very Happy

Thank you Susanne and Roger Very Happy I googled the Bullyland Persian Princess, very fluffy cute, but I might even say she looks to be more faithful to her actual nature rolemodel than Schleich Princess is Razz And yes, the Black mare is lovely, so why can't she join a non horse collection? She might add someting new Laughing .. as horse addiction and moneyloss.

Here are a few more with the CollectA Shire mare together with other Schleich heavy horses(Might give a better impression than when using Princess)
With the old Shire Gelding.

Thanks for pictures, Carola! Princess by Bully is only a caricatural and childish figure like yours from Schleich. Some braids and pink elastics are missing, maybe also a Schleich tag, and it would be the most loved little fluffy girl. flower

Actually Princess is less a caricature than the real thing Wink

Yes Susanne, you're right! Very Happy We cannot compare a Persian cat with a Shire horse. The first is pure cuteness, fluffiness, etc. So a good toy need to follow this appearance. Shires are powerful horses with a very impressive lloking, they surely have a touch of cuteness like in all creatures of this world, however the cuteness is not surely the main characteristic of a Shire.
I really would love to know how braided Princess would be accepted if it was a Bullyland figure. I love to study the market but some things I'll never understand. geek

When it is natural and subtile, it is magic. :flower:When it is exagerated and obvious, it isn't magic anymore. clown

Like humanity and their 'beautyenhancing' plastic surgery Rolling Eyes

We may have misunderstood eachother - with magic i think of the magic of nature, and how it designed its inhabitants Very Happy

I think, like when a replica of something living is on the edge before it comes to life(as it never does), it dives into the so-called Uncanny Valley affraid That's why the charicature was invented - to make sure of the viewers being attracted.
But I doubt we, who collect Schleich, CollectA, Papo etc. Will ever have to be concerned about that 'Valley'.
Sorry, that was just a side-thought study

My empathy with a figure is not related with how much I can see myself mirrored on it. I don't have such a huge ego. I only enjoy discussing how educational and well replicated they are. Surely all those aspects are important but certainly we are talking about different things. I've found that all these years, I tried to participate in horse discussions under my ignorance, trying to learn something more about these beautiful animals and figured that most part of the discussions were not related with how good replicas these figures are but how sweet and lovely they look. Just like in a forum about plushies where what is the best and what we like best means exactly the same thing. So, as a artifitial empathy, I would suggest to call it Silicon Valley with all respect once any way of loving a figure is as much valide as mine. flower

I hope not I look too much like Princess affraid Razz
All these psycological mechanisms I don't know enough about to start discussing them, without ending in a mess I can't handle.

I'm absolutely no horse expert, but over time, I hopefully go a little wiser on that topic.

This is very interesting! I didn't learn about this "uncanny valley" before but it explains a lot to me now when I found some articles about it. :) Thank You for mentioning this Carola. flower However I can't say if it would work for animals replicas, it rather works mainly in artificial human I think? (even though stuffed animals/taxidermy brings some uncomfortable feelings too, probably from different reasons).
But this "uncanny valley" explained why I always hated dolls, especially realistic ones, this had to work in my head, now when I read about this it looks clear to me (finally) Very Happy And movies about dolls such as "Ghost in the Shell" were almost painful to look at for me, it's great to know why Very Happy

This may also be one of the reasons why human head is one of the most difficult and interesting sculpting theme. (human brain analyzes human face MUCH more carefully than any other kind of objects) :)

From the other side, I'm not too big fan of caricature too, maybe only with some exceptions. cat

Me too! I've always disliked dolls and clowns which fit very well in the uncanny valley. The uncanny valley -problem is the most visible in 3D-animation, because they can be so realistic. It's good if the character looks human-like and sympathetic, but if it looks too realistic, it becomes creepy...

So this uncanny valley thing is mainly about human figures...
But one reason why I don't like some animal figures is, that they lack 'soul'... or personality. The figure might be almost accurate and perfect in many ways, but something in it makes me not to like it that much... :/ This doesn't mean that I only like figures that look cute or adorable. But this might explain that sometimes I like the older version better....

I don't like caricatures either, at least the traditional caricature style that people offer in market places etc. Where the artist exaggerates your every feature.. Ick... :(

Ana and Krista, it's cool with some views on that strange theme, and I'm happy it explained some things for you cheers I personally think those kinds of theories are incredibly interesting, and also explains a lot.

But yes, I think it mostly is a thing concerning human replicas, but I once red about and experiment with monkeys, where they showed repulsive behavior towards a very realistic romputer animated monkey.

Now I think this should be continued in another thread Razz But it certainly is a relevant theme. And for artists especially.

There is anything wrong if you find yourself like Princess. It doesn't mean that you have hooves! Laughing Wink
Think the reasons why you like that figure and those could be also the reasons why you like yourself. It is good when we have a balanced amount of self-esteem, as long as we dont have a steep nose like some crocs I know. Wink alien
Honestly, I predicted that the figure would be very successful although its fantasied conception. Unfortunately I was right and it is scary reading the topic about best Schleich 2013 figure and see some people choosing it. I really don't believe that someone can find it as the best. I only believe that people loves it best. In Portuguese language those are different ideas.
With all this positive feedback around such a fantasied figure, I'm sure, knowing how money oriented is Schleich, that the brand will give even a more fantasied looking to their future figures and ruin all series as they are doing with horse series. I see our forum as a good contribution to discuss and help brands giving a more educative touch to their animal series, turning them realistic, scientific accurate, and a way to help people finding how interesting, diversified and valuable is our Planet. If people can't find character in a figure that is realistic, that is people's fault, it is like when a man cannot see how beautiful is a woman when she is not charged with make up.
We have a lot of toys on market based on character and excessive cuteness, Barbie lines, plushies, Little pony, etc. I would love to see these brands working in a different direction but that is impossible when market wants fantasy and fantasy. Very Happy
I enjoy discussing with you but for me the Princess subject is just finished. I'm giving too much importance to a figure that is a symbol of Schleich decadency and mercyful love. flower

When I first saw the images, I actually predicted it would be the most bashed figure of the year. And I think still think it is... I haven't seen it being praised by that many people, in here or other forums..

I usually start to feel sorry for certain figures (I know they're just plastic!) and start to like them more, because they're so disliked.
It's happened to me with the Asian Mythical Being and now with the Princess.


But each to their own :) It's cool that people like different figures.

I'm only afraid that newer collectors or younger people will change their opinions, because what some other, more popular or known collector has said.
Probably nobody wants it to happen, but it can happen so easily.

Did anyone chose her to be the best? Except me maybe - though I just said she was a personal favorite, not the best in sculpt or realism. That I think the new Black Panther is (except those teeth). But that discussion to the right thread -----> Very Happy

Besides yes, good with self-esteem, and I guess crocs have some of that too yes, but still a healthy eye on reality Cool

Krista, I know that feeling too, feeling you got to take care of those every one else are bullying I love you

Carola, very nice to see the CollectA frisian with the Schleich mare. Very Happy
They are incredibly different, the CollectA has very long legs and a general horse looking while the Schleich mare looks almost built like a pony or an Icey! They feature the typical way both brands explore horse proportions, very interesting, thanks! flower
