None of them is a bad figure, Schleich included, I only don't like its simple sculpting and lack of expressivity, he is chubby but not muscled what is very strange for an adulte male cape buffalo. But a very good figure and very recomendable.
The Papo is an exageration and as usual has a lot of mistakes. But also, as usual, I love it a lot! Schleich did a great work with the baby, like Scott commented, it is nice when they are not replicas of adulte animals with extra cuteness. It is much more interesting when brands try to give them their real look. It is nice to see that Schleich gave it the reddish color and made a much better work then with big cat babies. Very Happy

Roger , I feel the new version of Schleich cape buffalo represents a fully grown young adult , stout, stocky and healthier Laughing

some how , I like him a lot I love you I am impressed with his fur , horn and muzzle details Surprised In my view, his eyes give an expression of amateur adult with frightened look . [ every brand's interpretation is very interesting in it's own way ]

As a collector , more than the real look , I sought for the animal's essence and presence first. With that , if there is a realism , why not ? Certainly a double bonanza cheers

My most favorite till today of all the cape buffaloes is 14133 - excellent model and Schleich has given a phenomenal life into this figurine .This model is something very very special to me sunny
I am crazy about Schleich cape buffies as I have 3-4 pieces of each model in different variations .

Thanks doc, I have had the schleich turkey for looooong time, since my early childhood and he was a great friend ( I remember my dad making turkey calls with his mouth and it was sooooo funny :) ) I do not have the old Schleich cape buffalo, I really want it though, but it will probably remain elusive for while Sad But I have seen all of your variations and they are great! Like I said earlier, I like the new schleich buffalo, he is just a little bit more well fed, and for some that is not their taste, but I love him to death! And yes, I love to see all the different interpretations of an animal among all the brands, for instance lions are another good figure to compare (as far as realism, the mojo lion is best in my opinion, it has been proven that females prefer a male with a dark mane over a male with blonde hair, also if they have longer/thicker manes that is preferable too) but just to see the artists rendition is interesting of any species.

Doc, your love for the retired Schleich buffalo is internationally known! Laughing
I remember reading it on Collectors Quest, Laughing Giraffe and much later on STS. Very Happy
I appreciate reading your opinions once you judge the figures in a completely different way of mine. Your preference for old retired Schleich, AAA is interesting once you appreciate what you call a somewhat "Vintage" looking and a figure with a lot of character. I am more devoted to correct proportions, detail and some accuracy in scientific terms, with some expression and of course some character is needed too.
Though, I like most of the figures that Schleich launched between 1995 and 2005, mainly their criativity with species not present in our days. I never had this buffalo in hands. It looks a great figure but hard to judge only in pictures. Actually, I think the Cape buffalo with more character is the Papo what surely doesn't mean it is the best. Very Happy Luckily, all of them are very nice! :)

Well , Roger , I like the oldies schleich not only from their vintage aspect , but also , as you told , the variety of animals introduced , the quality and again , I could find something very strongly in the older animal figurines [ only I am talking about Schleich ], nothing but once again , so much of LIFE in the oldies .

Of course, the details were missing and some were bit crude . BUT , inspite of all , they were brilliant pieces. Thats why , I am so obsessive about the Schleich oldies :)

I love the Papo buffalo a lot . Thats a different note , for that matter , all cape buffies from all brands , I just love love them a lot.

Any way , as I experienced , when I hold old and new Buffaloes of Schleich , I am clearly able to appreciate the superiority of the older ones - even anatomically , proportionally too , old guy looks very realistic [ atleast for me ] , may be details are missing . I don know about other collectors .

This is my strong opinion with Schleich .

Thats why I am madly obsessive on the Schleich oldies . Some old animals with great expression and life in their sculpts - running chicken , oldest calves with tails up , oldest lamb , Kudu oldy , Giraffe with bent neck , Polar bear s oldies - standing with paws up and the other one standing , African female elephant oldy etc. etc.

Perhaps , I would come out with some comparitive pics. and let's analyse Very Happy

Doc, about it there is no doubts, Schleich old horses are good examples of figures full of life when modern, although more detailed and better textured, are not as exciting or lifelike. The brand is actually very defensive and some figures are only one more number to collect and not the remarkable and unmistakable as they were some years ago. Of course there are some good exceptions and among new figures some make me very happy. I love the yak, Portuguese version of the tapir, kudu, etc. The kudu lacks some life but is very accurate. What I meant was that although, for example, some old figures are very atractive, I don't find interesting when a leopard is depicted similarly to a jaguar. I like best new versions, with less character but where a kid or even an adulte can see easily the differences between 2 species. That's more educational, I guess.Or to see crocodiles with 10 toes, or the lynx, very funny, almost comic but very far from a real lynx. Very Happy
But, mountain goat, musk ox, European bison, are good examples where the animals have some character and atractiveness without disturbing excessively the look of the real species. Very Happy

Good interpretation Roger , I agree Sad(o)):

Of course, there is definitely an exception in vintage animals like you said the lynx oldy , croc. oldy etc.
Neverthless , I love the croc oldy , as it's face is very well depicted than the new one .

And YES, I love , love, love the YAK , TAPIR . But Kudu new , is again the matter of scale size . Though , I like it's anatomical accuracy , I am not that impressed with the size Sad

[ By the way , can u show a pic. of Portugal Tapir please ? , if possible , with a comparison of China version ]

Yes , the European bison , Musk ox and Mountain goat ....also the chamois , oryx antelope , warthog oldy are all killer models with out standing work . I like to include my fav. the cape buffalo oldy as wll , with this list of killer figurines . Laughing

A few more.
These are from a brand called Little Buster Toys from my local farm store, I really like them although they have weird eyes but I like them as much as Schleich cows.
Charlois (there are a cow and calf too, but they didn't have them Crying or Very sad Sad ) :

Here's some I found today.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The hippo is kinda a funny story, so I went to a new second hand store today and reached out for this guy thinking he was a statue (he was in the statue section). Then I felt what he was made of and looked at his belly and there it was, a T.M. in an oval with a date name and made in china stamp. I never really liked the Toy Major animals I have seen before, the ones I have encountered were hollow and just not my cup of tea, but I love this little guy!
The Quetzalcoatlus is from safari's carnegie collection.

Thank you so much Susanne! So is he worth much because he is a promotional? I would never sell him, I have grown quite attached, but I am curious. Mine has some paint loss, but again i love him a lot. And also, he seems different from other TM models Ive seen, he is not hollow for one, and he is little, why is that? Thank you anyone for assistance.

Here are some great new additions from Susanne! I love them so much. Sorry for the two blurry pics, for some reason my camera did not like my beaver or my bison. scratch And since the forum has been changed a little since last I posted, if this is in the wrong place moderators/admins please feel free to move it, but please PM me so I know where it went and I can find it. Very Happy

And since the bat is hardest to photograph I took a few pics of him, he turned out a bit bigger than I thought he was when he got here. But he truly is a great model. Oh and that is a mutilated paper clip to get him to pose for me better.

You've found some treasures with Susanne's help! flower
Treasures not because of rarity but because some of them are really nice. The wisent and mountain goat are 2 great examples. Very Happy
Interesting, I look at this beaver and I see a beaver, it doesn't happen with the new version. scratch scratch Could you please tell me which figure is the first one? scratch geek Very Happy flower
Congratulations!!! Very Happy

@Roger: The figure in the first picture is the Schleich black panther, or the black version of their leopard, 14126 from the years 1995 to 2001. I am not sure if I like the version of the beaver vrs. this one, I like that this one has a thicker neck, and not such a large back end, it seemed like whoever sculpted some of Schleich's new figures has a problem with body proportions, the enormous head on the Shire stallion, the short little body of the Hippo. But don't get me wrong, I still like those figures, but that is just a theme that seemed to be present in this years new figures from them.

@Lance: I thought I would never even see this models in person, let alone own them. I bought the Safari ltd. Mt. goat a few years ago thinking that I would never have the Schleich one, but yet here they are! Susanne bought a big lot of mixed animals for only that she had been searching for for long time, the bullyland female moose, and all these others she had doubles of, and as far I was concerned none of these figures were possible to find (for me anyway) since they tend to be expensive on American Ebay. But trust me, I know I am very fortunate to have these animals, and right now they are the stars of my collection. Very Happy Hopefully someday soon you find the bat too Lance.

Paige, I like them all, I only enjoy to see which one I like best. Very Happy
So the first figure is Torben, the founder of our forum. I remember asking him about which figure was in his avatar. It looks I am not able of memorizing this figure even I watched it for a long time on the top of our forum! Laughing geek I also remember receiving my first old retired Schleich figures from friends of the forum, it was like a miracle once I thought they were impossible to get. My musk ox, mountain goat, anteater, wisent, are all from these wonderful people and I'll never forget it. Last mounths the same is happening with some impossible Bullyland, they are not usually expensive but very hard to find. I think we all are lucky of living on STS! cheers

@Lance: that is good to hear you found one, I remember you were looking for it for a long time.

@Roger:I still do not have the pleasure of owning many older Schleich figures, including the musk ox and anteater, but not through lack trying! Laughing But yes, I do feel lucky to be here with all the STS members, and every time I get the chance to get a model that I don't have I feel a huge sense of thankfulness to this person who gave the animal to me. I distinctly remember back in 2009 when I moved back to an area that sold Schleich, and flipping through their catalog and on EVERY page there was at least 5 or 6 animals that I didn't have but HAD to have (we lived in an area that only sold Safari ltd, and the time I didn't like them as much as my beloved Schleich animals, but now of course that has changed and I wish I had bought a few more Safari figures back then Rolling Eyes ) and at the end of the year I had every one of their farmlife and wildlife figures in my collection, and there were a few of their other figures I wanted, and finally last year I got the dragon family, my last figures I was searching for from my first year of serious collecting. After I found that 2009 catalog I searched all over the internet and found animobilinfo and their Schleich section, and it started again, so many beautiful figures that I remember wanting so badly, but thinking there is no way I would get hardly any of them. Then I found STS and followed it for a few years, until I joined this last year, and I have gotten so many great figures that I cherish so much and now realize that nothing is impossible for me to find with the fantastic people on the forum.
So... now that I have ranted and told you my life's story... I think I will stop now... pale Embarassed Laughing

No no no no. But Safari is what I have I most of (second to Schleich of course), I bought Safari because that was all that was available to me at the time. I definitely do not have every retired Safari figure, though like I said, now I wish I had bought more safari, since now that I am older I can see the charm in the them, and see that I do like them.

Paige, thanks for telling your beautiful story! flower
I am sure you'll find those you need. The musk ox drops often on our trade section. Very Happy

My mom found a few new little critters for me today, but since the light has been bad around here for a while I need to wait to take better pics. But I have now,

Schleich: the newer Kudu, freshly retired grizzly adult, old standing male tiger, and golden lab female
Safari: otter
And a few other miscellaneous, namely a fox, a small cow and calf, and a pretty small (safari toob size though I don't think that is the brand) camel and hippo and poodle.

Some I might custom since they aren't really worth trading (kind of damaged) or I will trade or sell.

Ok, so yesterday a package arrived with some very great treasures!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
I don't like the painting on the Papo caribou (which means I must get another to repaint) but the sculpt is great.
The Safari Grizzly could also have a better paint job, but the fish and sculpt are great also.
I don't really like the old Papo wolf sculpt (I have both colors now, the white and the gray) but I love wolves.
The AAA tiger cub is really cute, and although he is really a light orange he has become one of my favorite tiger models I have now.
Lastly my gem (and favorite) is the Schleich musk ox. He has come so close to being in my collection over the last 3 or 4 months and I was tantalizingly cut short of getting him for various reasons. But he is now in my collection (standing next to my also very prized and beloved Wisent who came to me thanks to Susanne's help a little while ago) and is very happy. Also the seller (my dad has gotten very attached to ebay lately, which is where all of these guys came from) only had a group pic of them all, and once I got the musk ox I noticed he was made in Portugal.  Very Happy

Also in the group I also got another Papo gray and white wolf (in addition to the one gray I kept and white one I already had), a Safari Mt. lion, Safari caribou, and recently retired this year Schleich Grizzly. All of these are doubles so soon I will probably post them as trade or sale.

P.S. I have also bought two other groups of animals from the same seller (with more rare gems and doubles in them) which will hopefully come soon so stay tuned here and in the trades and sales section!
P.S.S. please tell me if you cannot see the pics, Photobucket has been difficult lately for me, and I'm not sure if these are too big etc. Thanks!

Great additions, Paige! Very Happy
I love the grizzly from this angle, it is definitively a great sculpting from the brand I think continues being the best with bears. Let's see how good new Papo are. Very Happy
Other figures are also nice, of course. flower

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments, I truly do appreciate it. Very Happy
@Susanne: I am so sorry to hear about the lost package, but I sent you a PM because that is one of the figures I have doubles of now. Very Happy
@Roger: I really like the bear also, I only wish that the painting was better, but the fish is truly painted very well. And I do really want to have the Papo grizzly for comparison too. drunken
