PostSubject: Ursus arctos : The COLLECTA, SCHLEICH, PAPO and SAFARI Brown bears meeting   Sun Oct 14, 2012 9:06 pm

A few days ago I put my hands on the COLLECTA new Brown bear. As I already said, this odd model is also very attractive and deliciously made.

I guess it is a good reason to organize a meeting between a few Modern brown bears.

My COLLECTA invited the 2004 SCHLEICH Grizzly, the 2005 PAPO Pyrenean Bear and the 2005 SAFARI Ltd Grizzly.

But first, pics of my new COLLECTA  Wink

Actually my favorite are the PAPO and COLLECTA. The SCHLEICH have a too big head as usual and the SAFARI Ltd need to encounter a good painter  Wink .
The LINEOL is out of this competition of course  Wink
Having them four in hands, I don't think the COLLECTA is oddest than the SCHLEICH or SAFARI Ltd, I'm sure you would get use to it because I thought like you first  Laughing

SCHLEICH

WONDERFUL comparison, Christophe !!!! Sad(o)):

Thankyou very much, - and for the comparisons to pictures of living bears, too Very Happy
It shows how different they can look dependant on age, time of the year, gender etc... Very Happy

Kiki, thank You for the photos of real bears to show how different they can be. That's true, even one bear can look differently in Spring and in Autumn Very Happy
I already knew the photo which was probably reference for CollectA. And I still think the head of the real bear is bigger and neck shorter as well as the hump is smaller but I appreciate the nicely sculpted head and good paws :) Oh well, I haven't seen he figure personally and I guess it may be much nicer in reality. :)

About Schleich, yes perhaps this one is also quite odd, head is bigger than it should be indeed scratch (Maybe CollectA and Schleich bears could exchange their heads??? Laughing ) We will see the new one soon, hopefully better than Schleich 2012 polar bear Suspect

So, my favorites are Papo (wow I love the photo of "real Papo" that You found, wonderful) and Lineol now :) I also like my Tipple Topple cutie cat

Even though there's something slightly odd about the Schleich, I quite like it. More than the others, it somehow fits the mental stereotype I have for a Grizzly specifically. (I think that's part of what Schleich does well: they fit stereotypes, even when those stereotypes don't fit reality.)

My favorite is definitely the Lineol, but putting that aside...I probably like the Papo the most, then the Schleich and CollectA. From there, it's a bit of a drop to the Safari. It is so poorly painted and I confess I have a personal preference against the fish in the mouth. It's really disappointing because I feel like Safari ought to have an amazing Grizzly sculpt.

I don't have this bear and never saw one for real but I must say the new COLLECTA brown bear is more and more precious for me, maybe not my 2012 favorite but at least the best surprise for 2012. Cool

For me, I will prefer Papo & Collecta. For schleich, I have to admit the head is a too big. But is cute!!

My bear had only black dots as eyes, and a squint... I was very upset when I've received her  Mad I've repaired her eyes a bit but still looks weird...

The topic I'm needing! Curiously the brown bear of my collection is the SOL90, of course not because it is the best but only because I was curious about the brand and decided to choose this one.
I'm geting used with the CollectA, I and my niece rejected the Safari because of the fish, anyway I think the salmon thing is very interesting and the Schleich was always in doubt. I like it, that's a good figure for a grizzly in my opinion, the expression is good, the hump looks correctly pronounced and the painting interesting. I never liked the Papo, the face has a sweet expression and that is all for me. I want to remember that there is a lot of diversity among Ursus arctos, grizzlies are very different from European subspecies and Papo is a Pyrenees bear, not a grizzly. It turns also hard to make a choice. I think the CollectA is also not a grizzly. I'll wait for next generation of Schleich grizzlies, I hope it is not smiling and with unexpressive body and strange texture of the 2012 polar bear. If it is as good as previous with a somewhat smaller head, it would be enough for me. I also hope the adultes are in proportion and in different poses. bounce
Thanks for great work again, Christophe! cheers

Scott,, Stereotype, that's it! Why I never thought in that word before while describing Schleich style? scratch
That's perfect!! Very Happy

Pizzly, Grolar are already on the market... There is so much strange and odd Brown or Polar bears than I'm sure we could find some pizzly bears in the batch Laughing
