Yeah, wild boars are among my all-time Schleich favorites. And the real gems of my wild swine herd are two figures "made in Germany" which look noticeably superior than the "made in China" versions - I posted a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
As to Schleich's badger, I've not bought it yet. I'm not too excited by this figurine, although I like badgers. Of course, I'll get it sooner or later, but right now my focus is on the figures to be retired next year Wink Cool

How collectors are different! Laughing Schleich European badger is in my opinion, the best Schleich 2011 figure! Laughing Very Happy

I see Very Happy Yes, wild boars are really nice figures, they look wonderful in bigger group!
I like the badger very much, although it's quite big. But it's really well done and badgers are one of my favorite animals :)
About what will be retired, I don't know if any really nice figure will be retired this year confused Riding sets are quite nice but they are too expensive for me, and all others I have in collection or I don't want in my collection Laughing

Kirill, a great display of a great collection! the boxes are brilliant! and very appropriate because western North America has what we call... box canyons!

the cottonmouth is brrrrrr! scary! i love snakes, but for some reason cottonmouths give me the willies. i think it's that mouth. much scarier than rattlesnakes. plus they swim! Shocked

Glad to have positive feedback about my N. American display right from California!
I didn't know about the "box canyons". Now I know it and can pretend that there is a deep idea behind my box-sticking-together thing. Wink :)

I like badger as a species too, I wanted to have a badger figurine for a long time. Moreover, I liked Schleich badger when I saw its catalogue pics. But when it appeared in shops, I was a bit disappointed...
That's why the best Schleich-2011 figure for me is the buffalo calf! Wink
And yes, Roger, it's wonderful to know how collectors are different!

Nice to see that you used common boxes to give some structure in your displays Kyrill.
Just a tip, you could form these boxes into more natural shapes, which would even look more natural, isn't it? Laughing
It would be hard to put this cupboard sheets on them, but the endresult would look great i guess... Very Happy

Hmm, if it's larger than normal grizzly by Schleich then it would be good for me. In my opinion the "normal" grizzly is too small, being in that size he doesn't look impressive scratch You are right about the prize, I also don't like it. But are You sure there is any handle on his back? If yes, I would have to cut it off in mine version Rolling Eyes
Anyway I haven't seen this figure yet, so not sure if I will buy it, however pose, colors and texture look wonderful in catalog photos cat I would be so happy to see some photos from collection of someone who has got this bear... Could someone help me, please? What a Face What a Face What a Face

Happy to help, of course Ana Very Happy

I think the same as you. the grizzly by schleich is too small in comparisson to human figure, and the texture (fur, colour) is best done in Torak version, more realistic. But has a notch on his back hand suport made of a different material and difficult to fix. Evil or Very Mad .

Torak bear could represent a Kodiak bear from Alaska ?

I found a site here where it does cost 11 euro's, as for the other Bayala figurines to. :)
When i see this huge bear next to the wildlife ranger/animal keeper, i think he is even to big for that scale then, even as a giant Kodiak- or Kamtchatka-bear.
He would be like 4 m upright standing which is even bigger then a polarbear! Shocked
But i like him enough to give him a nice place in the collection anyway! cheers

yes, all snakes can swim, but cottonmouths (AKA water moccasins) do swim! i keep imagining being waist deep in water and seeing one of those things coming at you; infinitely more unnerving than coming across a rattlesnake on the trail!

I have already tried it, but adhesive sheet doesn't stick properly then Sad So I prefer to hide the geometric lines with plants instead.
