They say that is important to be in the right place at the right time. It may have happened to me about 45 minutes ago. I was at my favorite toy store about 20 km. from my house and my friend Jody introduced me to the local Schleich sales rep. The first time I opened my mouth to say hello I dont't think anything came out. I was so excited I thought I was going to pee in my pants. Thank goodness it did not happen. I talked to her about adult collectors and Torben's forum and how it has gone worldwide. She was very interested in everything. I asked her about 2011 and she said that she had a email on her computer at her office. She took down my email address and said she would send it to me when she could. She did tell me there were about 75 new items coming out and one of them was a new remake of the bald eagle. I guess knowing one item is better than zero. If I get anymore info I will pass it along as soon as possible. At the very least, we have another contact with Schleich. Larry
Thank you Larry, this is great news, hope she emails you soon.

This year we had 10 new horses (I think that's right) and three new cattle. Each year they usually bring out a new cattle family don't they.

That's great that she didn't make any secret of it!
As to the bald eagle - there are 4 bald eagles at the market currently, if I'm not mistaken (Schleich, Safari, Papo, Bullyland...) I'm sure we'd all prefer to see ANY other eagle species instead, agree?

In 2010 Schleich introduced 25 new figures of wild animals.
So I think 75 means all the Schleich figures - together with knights, horses, elfs, etc. This year they released about the same amount of new stuff (70-75 items).

Latest update, Sorry I have not heard anything yet. I contacted my friend Jody at the toy store and she told me the national (US) boss for Schleich was in the store for meetings yesterday. Jody is going to send my email info on to the local office which is in another state. Hopefully something happens in the near future..

Wow, I'd love to have a Schleich contact too. I don't think anyone here in Finland is connected to them, at least not anyone who goes to Schleich forums. Not that there's much Schleich forums here anyway...

What, is it Halloween today?? :O We don't really celebrate Halloween over here. I mean yeah there's different kinds of costumes and stuff available and some kids (and adults) like to dress up, and since I was in an international school we did celebrate there. But it's really not a Finnish thing. Kids over here go "trick-or-treating" in Easter instead, dressed up as witches. They collect willow twigs, decorate them and it's supposed to bring good luck and health for the next year if the witches come to your door with them. They give one of the twigs to you and then you have to give them candy or money as repayment. Do you have that kind of a tradition in any other countries?

Funny, we are both Scanidinavian. But do it differently.
We do the dressing (Only kids) and trick-or-treat in late February, call it Fastelavn. We also make bundles of twigs, but from birch. Put candy and coloured paper on it. And then in the early morning, the kids wake their parents up, singing a Fastelavns-song and hitting the blankets with the twigs.
I looked the word up, it is supposed to be called Shrovetide, but I have never heard that word before scratch
We fill a barrel with candy, stick a drawing of a cat on it, hang it in a tree, and then the dressed up children hit the barrel with a stick untill it breaks and all the kids run to get the candy.
The one who breaks the barrell is "Cat-king"

But tell me, is the list of Schleich-2011 all that you need to have your peace of mind back? Wink Or the pain is unbearable because you're not sure if you like all of the new stuff?

Lol its a bit of both really......Hollingstone is right. Oh well lets wait and see...I havent bought any Schleich since Jan 2010 and I am itching to get my hands on some more but actually my aniticipation each year is to see what new models are coming but in particular if there will be any antelope or other hoofed animals......I think we are sooo overdue for a Male Gazelle amongst others....oh well.....

For me it's just that I wanna know what's coming out. I've never been really disappointed with Schleich, except maybe in 2009 when only 4 new horses came out Very Happy

Well, for me there's always something I love as well. But the vital question is - how MANY new figures will I like??? If there'll be more than 10 "personal hits", I'd be ver-r-ry glad. But if only 2-3 must- that'd be too bad... Wink
2-3 "personal must-haves" each year - it's the level of Papo for me, while Schleich usually releases more hits.

Did you mean you had already bought all the Schleich-2010 stuff you like in January??? And didn't leave nothing interesting for the rest of the year? :) Shocked

Yes I bought all the new 2010 wildlife models in batches over Jan/Feb actually. I couldnt wait! I only collect the wildlife models anyway so there werent that many models. I will try to control myself this year lol.

Oh, I see Wink
This is not my case anyway. I couldn't have bought all the wild animals I like at once even if I wanted and had enough money for it. The reason is that I examine every figurine scrupulously to choose the ones with no damage and painting flaws. And sometimes I can search through 5- 6 variants of the same model and reject all of them.
This is what had been happening with the Schleich drinking giraffe. I've been looking for an undamaged and well-painted one since 2009 and have found the one I like only in last October! The main problems with the drinking giraffe are the tips of its muzzle and horns - the paint is often scraped off there...
And I've still not bought Schleich tapir 'cause all the figures I held in my hands were damaged, can you believe it!

My goodness you sound just like me. I do exactly the same thing. I will go into a shop and examine all the figures on display to find the right one. I sometimes feel embrarrassed actually if the shop keeper or customers are standing nearby. I feel like an adult trying to be a kid by trying to find the perfect model but hey at least you understand where I am coming from.

In regards to the 2010 models I examined them across a couple of stores and found perfect models. In fact one of my local stores actually received a batch of GERMAN models for some reason because I immediately noticed the difference in paintwork on models on display. The German ones were either sent by mistake or Schleich was waiting for a Chinese delivery but whatever the case I got lucky and found all my models in perfect condition. The delivery was new so other customers didnt get a chance to touch the figures much. I always check with my local store.

This happened once here in Kiev too.
As to scratches and so on, I tend to blame transportation and storage issues, not customers' hands touching Wink

I do the same thing, look at all the models to pick out the best one.
Every year, if I can afford it, I buy all the new horses I like and cattle. Then the rest of the year is collecting the wildlife I like.
I bought my Tapir off the internet, I was lucky it was a perfect condition. Mind you, all the models that I've bought from that particular site have been in perfect condition, so I think they must check the models over before sending them maybe?

I try to buy the new horses every year as soon as possible. I use a webshop wich sends the schleich in original wrapping.

And I know a little shop where i worked one summer, there i always choose my horses in the storrage, not in the shop. She calls me every time when new horses arive.

I bought 2010 horses all but one in february.

Same for me Zwartvoet, I have to get the horses as soon as possible. There's this Finnish online shop that sometimes gets the January models before all the ordinary shops do, but sometimes they don't. This year the Friesian stallion didn't arrive until March or April or something, you can imagine how furious I was since I'd been waiting for Schleich to make a Friesian stallion ever since I started collecting them!
When I buy from a regular shop I examine all the possible options of the same model that there is – if I didn't I'd bring home horses with bended legs, mysterious brown streaks and biiiiig scratches on them. One of the members in a Finnish Schleich forum even told us that she once saw a Pinto stallion who had lost his tail! She didn't buy it of course...

Oh, you were really lucky then! Tapis are too hard to choose, indeed.

To be able to choose in the storage is a perfect solution! But I'm sure that no shop-keeper in Kiev will allow me to do it:)

When I buy from a regular shop I examine all the possible options of the same model that there is – if I didn't I'd bring home horses with bended legs, mysterious brown streaks and biiiiig scratches on them. One of the members in a Finnish Schleich forum even told us that she once saw a Pinto stallion who had lost his tail! She didn't buy it of course...
That's why I don't like buying figures online! If you don't choose them in person, chances are high you'll get those streaks or scratches. Moreover, the painting itself often differs (from darker to lighter, etc.), and not every variation can match my personal taste. Cool

It is just how i ask it, when I came in that shop for the first time she was working in the storage side of her shop. I went straigt to the storrage en afterwards to her shop. A few days ago i also went to an other shop, i explained why i was there en she also showed me the stockboxes. I'm speaking about small shops.

@ Siobhan, i missed the Frisian stallion to for a while. But i buy both the made in Germany and the Made in China versions. The made in Germany Frisian stallion had no problems, i had to wait for the China version for months

I think it is also good to have a selection of China, Portugal and German models just for variation purposes. Its a good idea

Those with Portugal sculpted are the best... are Premium!:)
I don't know if it is true but it will be nice see some differences between a figurine made in 3 different countries!
I think that the tapir is from 2010 but has 3 versions... correct?

...today i was very surprised. In the afternoon i got a call from a staff member of Schleich. She asked me a lot of things about collecting, trading, selling older figurines, how to buy and many more. It seems Schleich has recognized that there are not only kids but many older collectors worldwide.
I became the permission to use the Schleich logo and photos and i will become next month a new DVD with high-resolution pics from their complete product line from 2011 and some surprises, i will tell later.

By the way, who knows the further destiny of the above mentioned contacts with Schleich? Has someone here been communicating with that Schleich staff member???
