This is just my opinion, but the dogs are starting to slip towards cartoonish and not realistic. Crying or Very sad I do like the bent horn on the new longhorn though. Lots of longhorns that I have seen have irregular horns. I can't wait for mine to arrive. Very Happy

Except for the pattern the new Texas longhorn hasn`t changed a lot

Nice pictures Susanne! I love that Vulture (both of them actually).

I think the new Longhorn is a very fine model. But I'm not sure it is a sufficient improvement on the old one to warrant the bother. So many other animals they could have chosen -- heck, so many other cattle! But I do love it and I got it as well and I'm really happy with it.

I was thinking the same thing! Honestly, the most disappointing aspect of Schleich's 2013 line, for me, is their dogs. They aren't doing it for me at all. And I love small plastic dogs with a passion. Very sad.

Susanne, you should do a Walkaround of the new Schleich Panther! I, for one, would love to see lots of pictures of that model.

Here's my small contribution to this thread: The New 2013 Male Chimpanzee compared to the old Male. I feel like the new pretty much blows away the old.

What I have noticed about the newer schleichs is that the paint job is not as good. The chimps are great examples. On the older chimp, you can see the color begin to fade into another one, while on the new chimp, the colors are very abrupt, and do not mix together.

I think it depends on the batch of models. I noticed the very same thing you noticed about the colors on the hands on my Chimp, pictured above. But in a picture that Susanne took of a different instance of the same model, the painting on her Chimp is much better and fades much more smoothly from flesh into the dark color of the hair.

I believe, mainly kids, can have more fun with the funny old chimp, but the proportions of new figure are much more realistic. monkey
It continues looking like a bonobo although Schleich website says it is a common chimpanzee. Thanks of your picture, there is a chance of seeing this animal in my collection and all doubts will desapear. Thanks Scott and Susanne for these lovely comparisons. Very Happy

Great pics Susanne, and congrats on your additions!
Scott, I like your chimp too, but the painting is a little sloppy, but the model is fantastic! I saw on a documentary once, a common shimp with a darker face like that but it said it was a normal species. Bonobos can have peachy/pink colored patches on their face too, but I have seen this skin coloration before at a zoo also.

Good pics! I think that the standing bears face looks a little cartoony. It is still a great figure.

Honestly love best the old ones. Unless we can see what kind of bears they are. These new ones just look some cuties from a kid movies. Anyway, as usual, these cuties are lovely and many people will love them. Very Happy We collect what we love so anything wrong in it of course. Thanks for pictures, I enjoy it. Very Happy

The little one looks like Koda from Brother Bear. Thanks for the great pics and comparisons Susanne! I like the molds, but I wish the big bear's mouth wasn't so dark, I would have liked it more pinkish colored. Congrats on having them!

I got the new bears last friday, and they reminds me on the fairy tale about Goldilocks and the three bears. I think I have to find a little doll to be Goldilock. Laughing Laughing
Thanks for the pics, Susanne. I like the new bears better than old.

I guess your adult bear is made in Germany. I've seen the made in China version with completely different mouth paint. There were actually white teeth and red/pink mouth.

Thank you for the Bear-photos, Susanne cheers But now I feel a little less sure if I'm going to get these bounce I've been watching the old ones for a long time, to find a pair I liked, but never did so far... So far... Might have to see these 2013s in the store first... And I agree with the dark mouth. I might very well only be able to find the Made in China, so I hope for it to have a lighter mouthpaint.. Hmm, and then the male will become a defending mother with her cub.

I guess Papo's going to win the Grizzly Prize this year..

has anyone else noticed that some of the new models are made of a different kind of plastic and are very very lite (weight) compared to the old models... such as the heavy horses

I'm not sure what I think of the 2013 Schleich Grizzlies. I got the Snarling Grizzy, but I'm not so keen on the Standing "bear suit" Grizzly.

Susanne and Coel have already given us some comparison shots with the Grizzly Bear. Susanne's set of photos earlier in this thread are great and have lots of Schleich comparisons. Just for kicks, I'll make some comparisons with a couple other Brown Bears.

Here's the new 2013 Growling Grizzly by Schleich:

And here it is with the recently retired Schleich. Honestly, I know most people won't agree with me, but I kind of like the older Grizzly. As I put it elsewhere, sometimes Schleich seems to be successful because they represent animals in a way that matches well with our mental stereotypes of those animals, even when the stereotypes we picture don't themselves mirror reality very well. Regardless of how accurate the older model in the photo below is, it definitely captures the stereotype of the model I have in my head. (But maybe that's just because I grew up in California and illustrations of Grizzlies were everywhere...like, on the flag...)

Here is the new Schleich with the CollectA Brown Bear.

And here is the new Schleich with the Safari Grizzly, which is a great sculpt, but has a horrifically bad paint job. Alas.

Thanks for the pictures Coel. It's good to hear this about the Panther. I may get it, despite what I thought previously.

Ooh, many new lovely photos, thanks a lot I love you

The new Appaloosa stallion looks utterly handsome! Now we just need a cowboy villain who can ride him Cool

Nice to see more pics of the bears. And to me the standing bear is very far away from realism, well, that may not be Schleichs goal this time, it has the cuteness and that... but still... The upcoming Papo is going to blow this one away with ten thousand kmph!

Despite that I do think the roaring one looks pretty fine. Strangely the Bayala bear seems to be able to compete with these, now I don't have it.. Yet.. Buy from the pics I've seen..

Thank you for all these photos. I like the colour of Scott's bear's mouth (made in China) much more than the one from Susanne (made in Germany), but overall the coat of the German made looks better. Now which one should I get? question

Scott, I can't find here grizzlies and their pictures and I am absolutly sure that I like best the old version. When I see that female I can identify easily that this is a grizzly bear and not any other subspecies of brown bear. The new figure I really cannot understand clearly what is it. It is a Grizzly only because it has a hump? This is just a random brown bear making the role of the evil guy contrasting with the sweet mother and the baby with inflated head. I am not being rude with Schleich, they made their option of giving us poorly accurate figures and we have the option of buying or not. Very Happy Fortunately there are many brands in our days and this strategy is not irritating anymore. The Papo grizzly looks much more promising and I hope it is as good as it looks. Thanks for the pictures. Very Happy

The previous Shire Mare from 2005, and the new. She is marked 2012 even though she's a 2013 release.

The new Lipizzaner Mare with her older sister. She is nice, but the old lady has a much better pose I think.

Ohh ! Carola, I completely missed your great pictures Shocked Sleep Sleep

I agree, the old lipizzaner mare is nicer . The new one looks like she is stumbling, - and why does she have curly tail ? scratch
