Thanks for the pictures, Numaan. The figures that really amaze me are these two Ostrich chicks and the two Snow Leopards. They are so cute. :)

Some interesting figures to see!study
Ostrich was a big miss in CollectA range, not in collections! But the snow leopard is a big surprise, I'm expecting a cheetah! Some horses look promisssing!
Unfortunately I will see it only in April, probabily!Sad

Thank you Numaan for the news and for having sent the photos!

I am very happy about the snow leopard of course and a little disappointed for the missing of hoofed animals....anyway I must say that Collecta is improving a lot and I am very impressed about the sea lion, the indian elephant, ostrich cheeks,angus bulls and the deers, very nice.Also the manatee family, very well sculpted...shall we see them in march probably(?)

The horses are too thin.... Neutral

I guess nobody gave the CollectA product designers the same memo they forgot to give the Papo product designers that FEMALE ASIAN ELEPHANTS DON"T HAVE LARGE EXTERNAL TUSKS!!!!!!
What's the animal figure world coming too...
Anyone know the size of the CollectA elephants? Oh, wait let me guess...
about 4" tall and about 6" long....

Where are you seeing it??? And let me see! What is the size of Papo African elephants??? Same of CollectA!
And why the Papo black swan has a knob in the bill??? Nobody told Papo sculptors that Black swans are not melanistic variations from mute swans???
And nobody told the Papo painters that kudus don't have simetric strips???
Do you want more???
Try to see the figures ignoring the name of the brand!
And enjoy yourself with CollectA nice figures too!cheers :)

Schleichzoo on the first page has photos from the catalogue.
I agree with you, I think ALL the product designers need to be better informed about their subjects.
I make no bones about it, I prefer Papo. For me once in a while Schleich makes a descent figure. I also like Safari LTD., especially their Wildlife Wonders series.
But, as I've stated before, I go back to my Britains zoo animals and when put together the elephants look fine next to the rhino, hippos, lions etc..
I won't be satisfied until I get some descent sized elephants.
I was merely pointing out that both companies made similar female Asian
elephants both with tusks. The elephant, unlike the kudu with symmetrical stripes(you can display kudu with stripes, so you can't see the other side if it's really an eyesore), but no matter how you position the female Asian elephant the tusks will always be there.
I can't really ignore the brand because I can pretty much tell who made the figure because they all have certain style. However, if I see a figure that I like
no matter what the brand is, I'll get it (example: like Safari's Indian rhino).

Where do you read CollectA made an asian female elephant confused .

On the catalogue it is only write "Asian elephant". Making males and calves are not a problem for modern companies elephant .

So maybe the problem is : Where is the mother ? Laughing

Check the first page of this topic, and Schleichzoo has photos from the CollectA catalogue.
O.K., so it would seem that since bull elephants are mainly solitary or live in bachelor herds, that an elephant calf(in this case an elephant calf figure), so it's only logical that it(the adult elephant figure) would be with it's mom(therefore, the product designers shouldn't have made a female with tusks!).
Once again, for me, I won't be satisfied until I have all my animals in proportion to each other(doesn't have to be exact, but just enough to make them look good together).

Read the CollectA catalogue and not Schleichzoo post. Wink

On the catalogue, CollectA only talk about an Asian elephant... Not a female.

Why an Asian elephant calf can't be with his father since some 2011 buffaloes and kudus calves lived only with their father Laughing Laughing Laughing .

If you need 1/20 elephants, then you may hunt the Bullyland. I made two topics about them :

Yes, I wondered what size the CollectA Asian elephant was. But I'm imagining it will be too small compared with the Schleich zebras - I'm going to try and sculpt an Asian elephant, so see how that turns out, then I won't have to look for an in scale elephant anymore cheers

All are on my wishlist accept for the sea animals and chimps.

Those horses are typical Deborah McDermott sculptures. Very expressive. I'm not usually keen on Arabians but those ones look nice.

So, if it is logical, could you please explain me why in my 2010 Papo catalogue there's an adulte black rhino with a white rhino calf???What a Face
This strategy for the kudu gave me an idea for the elephant, put her turned back and you will not see the tusks!Idea
CollectA has it's own space in the market, very new brand and already the best in birds and horses!
And about sizes, the best dioramas I'm seeing in this forum has wrong scaled animals, people uses the distances. in a diorama, you put almost always the smaller closer and the biggest farer. So, has the space for the diorama is not as deep as real life, the smaller scale of the bigger animals makes it looks farer, see it putting the giraffes behind all animals!

I don't use my figures for dioramas, anyway I will tell Ana to send me a half painted bongo to see if it gets cheaper!Idea

Harriete, I think CollectA Asian elephant will be smaller than the CollectA African elephant!
So, very small to your zebra!
If you want a picture from the CollectA african elephant near a Schleich zebra tell me.
But why are you using a zebra to compare with an Asian elephant???

Well, I wanted to make a zoo diorama and the Schleich Zebras were the scale I was going to use, so I'm collecting animals that are in scale with the zebras. I already have a rhino, okapi and giraffe in scale.

That's very interesting! I have the Schleich female zebra and it is about 1:22 scale! But it works perfectly as a 1:20 scale, some small zebra. But not all zebras have the same size!
So I think the new Schleich kudu will work nicely with your zebra too!
Loved to know the brands of the figures you are choosing, is interesting for those who collect in scale. The CollectA giraffe in 1:22 scale will work as a 4,25 m giraffe! Not bed for a reticulated!
Don't forget to show your Zoo!!!Very Happy

Yes, I'll show you all my zoo diorama, when I start doing it Laughing
Well, first the Giraffe I painted is AAA, the black Rhino (I'm not sure if it's too big scratch ) is Bullyland, the large version. I think the Papo Okapi is alright with the Schleich Zebras, the schleich one is too big.
I don't usually mind models not being in scale with each other - I really would like the Wildlife Wonders Okapi and that's huge! The schleich male zebra is bigger then the female, I always use him as a guide.

Oh, I remember, you have the most beautiful giraffe of this forum, I have no idea about its size! The Papo okapi is a nice choice! I'm seeing the size of the rhino (63610) in my catalogue and with some measuerements it looks to have 8 cm high at sholders, so it is 1,60m, perfet size in 1:20 scale! As you are very talented I think we will see very nice figures! cheers

confused It's not the first time I heard the story of the Schleich okapi which is too BIG scratch I still don't understand geek .

The Schleich okapi is 8,5 cm at shoulder and the Papo 8 cm. An okapi is 1,80m at shoulder... It means the Schleich is 1:21 and the Papo 1:22...

The main difference seems to be in the lenght and angle of the neck

confused It's not the first time I heard the story of the Schleich okapi which is too BIG scratch I still don't understand geek .

The Schleich okapi is 8,5 cm at shoulder and the Papo 8 cm. An okapi is 1,80m at shoulder... It means the Schleich is 1:21 and the Papo 1:22...

And Christophe, have you already measured the scale of the ears of the Schleich tapir or the scale of the tail of the Schleich Kudu??? What a Face

Which Schleich kudu ? The older or the new one ???? Laughing

The main difference seems to be in the lenght and angle of the neck

And the scale of the head Shocked

Kikimalou,
I'm not a fan of Bullyland, but I do like the the size of the African elephant.
As far as your reference to a kudu calf living with a male kudu, that's how I should approach the new Papo Asian elephant situation, not in my zoo animal figure world.
And Roger, I didn't see the catalogue with the adult black rhino and white rhino calf. But they need to change it!
As far as displaying, I don't want to stare at my elephant's buttocks...
Good idea(I do that myself) with where you place figures to help make look more in proportion. However, my display cases aren't large enough to do that.
Also, as far as Britain's, since the elephants are the largest, the other animals are smaller in relation to them. If I use the Papo African elephant, the Papo lions would be to big when put in the same display with them. I feel the Papo big cats(Lions, tigers, cheetah, leopards, and jag), all look fine displayed together(they are pretty close to all(biggest group of Papo animals) being in the same scale), so they are my standard, and I want all the other figures to be in(or look as close) scale with them.
I can live with displaying the Papo big cats(as mentioned), gorilla, orang, nile croc, black bear, tapir, cape buffalo, giraffes, dromedaries, and hippos.

I love the schleich Okapi, but it doesn't live up to my favourite wild animal. The head is too big and the ears - look at the elegant neck and head of a real Okapi

Here's a link to the Papo

and schleich

I think out of the two the Papo is the most accurate and in scale with a Schleich Zebra.

I agree with you Harriet, I've got these two guys Wink .

What I ment is : the problem with the Schleich okapi isn't the scale... It's the sculpt !

As often with Schleich, head, eyes and ears are too big and animals are too chubby. That's why they are cute... That's why they are not very realist alien .

I already said that in another topic but just have a look at the "famous" Schleich black rhino cyclops cyclops cyclops The head is as big as the abdomen clown Laughing

This is what I’m always trying to say: big heads, big ears and sometimes short bodies or even fat bodies! Those are typical strategies to develop cute figures. See what happen with plushes or cartoons! Of course Schleich do it in a subtle way, that is the reason why I say that they are more beautiful but not accurate or more educational!
But people love it and I have nothing against the taste of each person.
however don’t call masterpiece when a replica is beautiful but not perfect!
Of course there are too very nice figures in this brand!

Many thanks for the info, Numaan!
Well, I was expecting more interesting critters from Collecta after they introduced some really fresh things last year... Sad
And now we have only 1 species that isn't already on the market - the manatee.
Most of the others are represented by all the major brands (only the Snow leopard is made by just two majors - Safari & Bullyland).
Moreover, Schleich's influence is too visible this time: ostrich chikcs, sea lion, Red Squirrel Eating, red deer family (and the stag is bellowing - surprise!)...
After the last year's fresh and extraordinary buffalo, peregrine falcon and spoonbills it all looks as a step back. Don't you agree with me, friends?

P.S.: Numaan, could you ask which Collecta figures are to be discontinued this year?

the bigger animals makes it looks farer, see it putting the giraffes behind ]all animals!
You're right, that's a good solution to cope with scales, although it doesn't work in every case.

K,
I'm still not satisfied with any Papo elephants,(be it size or they're not realistic enough), so as you said Papo elephant and Schleich hippo are in scale(as Britians),
but I really don't care for either figure, so stuck in the elephant quandary.
I do like the Papo(open mouth) hippo, just need an elephant to go with that
one.
I still wonder how all(each company) product designers decide on what scale to make each on each individual figure? Because there's no rhyme or reason pattern to it. I mean why do they make adult 7"-8" tall giraffes, instead of making them
4" tall? They seem to kind of get it right on the giraffes(a descent 7"-8" in height), but why not on elephants?

Their main audience is children - they think they can get away with making elephants small to save money, maybe. Because children don't care really whether animals are in scale with each other. They wouldn't have to make them that much bigger to be in scale, I agree it is silly.

By the way, the Bullyland large black rhino that I have, is it in scale with the Papo hippo? I have them both but I'm not sure still.

B, it's always interresting to see different collectors point .

I'm very satisfied with the papo elephants and I use them with the Britains giraffe and other 1:32 stuff because I really dislike the Britains elephant Laughing

Schleich wrote in the catalogs that their figures are designed to fit children's hands. I think it means not too large and too small animals.

The red deer is a remaking, like in Schleich, so no influence! The sea lion is a very old Schleich figure, probabily soon retired, ostrich chikcs, sea lion, Red Squirrel Eating are in other brands too! Ostrich were a big miss in CollectA range like it is a cheetah!
What do you think about Schleich buffalo one year after CollectA and Papo? And about the Schleich kudu, when the same species is a big hit in Papo range? And which new species did Schleich put in the market this year?
Kiril, this is what I call a Schleichcentric thougt!!! You are more under Schleich influence than CollectAdon't you aggree???:)
