I think that all brands should have strict control
of quality .
stiffness and good paint is necessary

That's awful Silvia! I think someone should write to collecta and complain, they're loosing customers! I'm certainly not buying any more of them either.

That is terrible Shocked
I am so sorry for you, Silvia ! Sad

Really, really terrible, - for the collectors, but especially for the brand !
The horses are so beautyful that I am sure a lot of people buy them as their first CollectA models, - and being a rather new brand, this may give CollectA a really bad reputation !

It could even prove fatal to the brand pale
I agree, somebody MUST tell them ! The sooner the better What a Face

I´ll try to cantact them and explain what happens to the horses, including pics.

If anyone can provide me an email or something else I would be glad.

I don't understand why do they use different materials, the material which wild animals are made off is much harder...

I'm sorry to hear about Your trouble Silvia! I have only one horse from this brand but I have seen in a shop some horses with banded legs already Shocked

But I believe the new shire has no problem with legs as they are fatter? I love the sculpt work on this one so it's on my wishlist even if the plastic is not the best study

Yes, most of wildlife is from very nice plastic scratch

Some 2012 wildlife reached my home yesterday, the Grizzly, the Eurasian lynx and Capybara babies... Except the bears, they are made in a softer plastic, very very soft for the babies confused
I also read some have antelopes with odd horns, too bad some excellent models could be ruined by a bad plastic !

I don't have any of those so I can't state anything in general. 2012 items that I have - gander, waterbuck, eland, hyena, red river hog, sable antelope and gnu, are all hard plastic...

I don`t think it is a new material, but the fact that they are making them more spindly than the material can take. scratch

Last week I got the zebra and foal in the local little "knitting-and-stitching" shop. They are so old thay are marked Procon, but the legs are very soft, esp the thin legs of the foal.
Perhaps we are pushing our demands for accuracy too far ? Crying or Very sad

Yes, from some reason they make some of them out of soft material, especially horses, who knows why... silent

I have the 2012 Haflingers, mare and two foals - all are made of hard material, like those from 2010. So it means they still can make horses from better material.

CollectA is developing such an amasing work, mainly giving us figures with thin legs and horns that turn them in realistic depictions of the animals. CollectA is working in a point tthat I think is very close to the limits of what factories can give, not only to create good replica in terms of shape but also to keep them valide to safety laws.
I don-t know why they can make the gnu with so good legs and not horses. In terms of manufactoring they look the poor side of the brand. Giving a dedicated sculptress, a poor painting and plastic. I hope they find a solution, if they start making the figures with thick legs and horns I-m sure I-ll not love them as much as I do, but to keep them bending as they do now will not be good to a brand that is having some troubles to find its place on market. Very hard, very hard...

Hey Magda, do you really have the Haflies in HARD plastic?? O.o Mine are soft, in fact the mare is one having problems with legs.




About the shire mares, I have both. And both have blended legs. Only a bit, but visible. The plastic on the shire mares seems to be harder, but the repositioning method didn´t work for them.

Yes, I do, they are very similar to 2010 horses. Lipizzaner stallion is more rubber in touch (and has wobbly hind legs), though. I don't know about the rest of 2012 horses, as they are available in my country for only about two weeks and I haven't bought them yet.

Okay, I checked the Haflie once again. And I was istaken, mine is also made of a harder matherial. But she has the problems anyway.

Wow, that´s strange... I have some Collecta horses too (lusitano, andalusian, arabian, tennessee walker with foal...) and they are OK. Yes, their legs are soft but they are standing still. scratch Okapis legs are thin too but they are much harder...

If the climate was the problem source then all the figurines would have more or less the same. And no... Only my 2011 and 2012 CollectAs are affected, and they are shown in the same place as my Schleich and some Bullyland, Safari and Papo (I also have some CollectA from 2010, one of them come with a very blended leg but I repositioned it and it´s perfec since then, no blended legs or any other problem with my 2010 horses)
