Congratulations Anna! Sorry about the Kudu, it's funny the horns on your one look different to mine. Yours look like they're lower down, whereas mine are upright scratch

Fortunetly, I have good glue, so you can hardly see that it has been broken Very Happy

Thats weird about the difference, but when it comes to horns, I have seen these diferences in most brands

A,
Schleich may be easier to find where you are(not for me). No matter what,
I'm a Papo devotee and prefer their product over Schleich.
If you want fine detailed artistic pieces get Papo, if you want figures just for the
sake of collecting get Schleich et al.

The thing is, I want schleich, I want papo, and safari, and collectA, bullyland, chap mei, funrise, new-ray, k&m int., pv, kaiyodo and all other brands out there. And I want every single animal of every single brand... What a Face

So it´s better for me to focus on schleich that´s easy to find here, or else I will spend extreme amount of money to find every papo I want, and I will still buy all schleich and other brands I can find here Suspect

So instead I save money and once ore twice a year, I can make these big orders with wonderful animals from papo (and safari and other brands hard to find). It´s less expensive for me, and I get extra happy when the orders arrive cheers

A,
You're hardcore! I'm very picky about which figures I buy. For instance, the Papo
beaver is a very nice detailed piece, but because it's to large(in proportion to
the Papo black bear), I won't get it.
Plus, Schleich's figures are not my cup of tea, so it would have to be really
an amazing piece for me to purchase. I like Safari ltd especially their Wildlife Wonders series(of course the elephants, white rhino are not big enough as compared to the others). Their new Indian rhino looks good though!
Where do you order your figures from?

Oops, for me it was vice versa - I thought the hippo would be bigger before I got it.

I've got the contrary opinion :) Apart from Papo tigers, their figures more often lose the game to Schleich in terms of refinement, to my mind. (Especially it concerns the quality of painting and materials).

:) I use the same approach, but the other way round - it would have to be really an amazing Papo piece for me to purchase Wink And I don't buy even excellent figures if they are too large for my displays (Papo gnu and kudus are bright examples).

PostSubject: My first papo of the year   Fri Feb 11, 2011 1:30 pm

Like I said in a previous thread, this year I´m gonna focus a little more on papo.

And I must say, it has been a realy good start of the year for papo, with over 20 new animals to my collection.

Some of them came from trades from this forum (Big thanx to Christophe and nyarlahotep)

Here are the pics of the ones I found last month Very Happy

My first papo dinosaur Shocked Never thought that was gonna happen

And of course, the wonderful animals I got in trades I love you

But come on, whats up with the hind legs scratch
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
You cant realy see it clearly in the pic, but the legs are very unnaturaly apart. The setter looks like it´s about to take a piss or something Suspect
