The exclusive schleich white cat for 99,99 dollars. What a price, at least to me. But somebody else might find it low or acceptable. Just wanted to post the thing.

The price is not THAT bad, actually.
My wonderfully crazy cousin in USA gave me the set for a late christmas gift.
She had bought it from Australia, and the seller ( shame on him) had included the receit.
The set was 44,95 $, shipping 40 $, tax 7,73 $, which is a total of 84,95 $, - so not much left for profit to Samson  scratch

A Nardi black panther for 75€. Nardi was an Italian composition toys manufacturer.

Now I wonder if the price is so incredible...  Wink

Maybe it is with a signature of the seller , maybe there is Tom Hanks behind the sellers name, who knows ?

I never would pay that Price-it is too cheap, and if a Thing has such a low Price, it can be worth nothing.

"Fred" asks for big money for rarities. I remember seeing this wonderfully murky fellow auction for 250 euros once on
eBay.fr, but I think that is maybe double its real value in the marketplace... Smile

I could not agree more, Susanne. In fact, this is one of my all-time favorite figurines. They are considerably
more impressive-looking in person, as opposed to photographic images... cheers

Some collectors who are able to spend a lot of money for those Starlux would never spend a cent for a Schleich or other modern model, even for the rarest  Wink

I'd say the opposite, that collectors who set defined boundaries to what they collect are being (slightly) less strange - because they are accepting the reality that no one can collect everything. Of course, when it comes to spending large sums on single rare figures it depends how strictly and narrowly their collection is defined, and what else, within those limits, they might have spent that money on instead. So, for a collector of Starlux figures, or just some series of Starlux figures, the questions they should be asking themselves include: How many other, considerably cheaper, Starlux figures do I still need to complete my collection?, and, What are my chances of another opportunity of buying this rare figure again, perhaps cheaper next time it turns up?

Generally, the broader the range of a person's collection, the less justification there is for buying rare expensive items, for the simple reason that money would be better spent on buying a lot of cheaper items. Granted, it does get a bit more complicated, when choosing what to spend your limited cash on, for those (& I suspect there are many) who have broader overall collections, but with priority parts, such as perhaps a vintage UK made zoo collector who might prioritise Britains and Taylor & Barrett, but collect the other brands as well.

Dave, I was just joking  Wink

I guess my collection's range is broad enough and, even if Starlux models remembered me my youth I would not spend so much money for that model... For teh good reasons your are explaining here.  Very Happy

Thats true  sunny sunny 

I think a lot of us have a holy grail  sunny sunny  And what is, if you search any years without a chance and than you find it on ebay. But you are not the only person that really want this?? There are 2,3 or 10  Very Happy 
And you have the money in this moment Very Happy Very Happy 
I think i am crazy enough for that. But in this moment my most expensive figurine is the old lyrebird. I found this bird for 60€ and 15€ shipping  sunny sunny 
Yes, really not cheap - but all the other figurines of this bird that i ever found was more than 150€ in a bad condition and most expensive price 400€ for a good condition. So i think for me it was cheap  Very Happy

These are exactly the questions I've put to myself everytime I've come across a rare or very rare Schleich or Starlux figurine for auction or sale... cheers  Oh, and can I really afford that figurine at that particular time? Wink

I'd say the opposite, that collectors who set defined boundaries to what they collect are being (slightly) less strange - because they are accepting the reality that no one can collect everything. Of course, when it comes to spending large sums on single rare figures it depends how strictly and narrowly their collection is defined, and what else, within those limits, they might have spent that money on instead. So, for a collector of Starlux figures, or just some series of Starlux figures, the questions they should be asking themselves include: How many other, considerably cheaper, Starlux figures do I still need to complete my collection?, and, What are my chances of another opportunity of buying this rare figure again, perhaps cheaper next time it turns up?

Generally, the broader the range of a person's collection, the less justification there is for buying rare expensive items, for the simple reason that money would be better spent on buying a lot of cheaper items. Granted, it does get a bit more complicated, when choosing what to spend your limited cash on, for those (& I suspect there are many) who have broader overall collections, but with priority parts, such as perhaps a vintage UK made zoo collector who might prioritise Britains and Taylor & Barrett, but collect the other brands as well.

These are exactly the questions I've put to myself everytime I've come across a rare or very rare Schleich or Starlux figurine for auction or sale... cheers  Oh, and can I really afford that figurine at that particular time? Wink

o.0 Did I miss something here, was just a joke Wink XD

It just means you accidentally raised a topic worth discussing.

It won't be the first time a conversation, either on the internet or in real life, went off into an unintended direction.

On Ebay Germany you can buy some old Reisler figurines for 299 Euro.
In my opinion, the price is a "little bit" to high, what do you mean ?

WOW, Christophe ! But they are ever so beautyful  drunken 

Yvette, thankyou for the link to the Reislers.
It seems that prices are going up for Reisler these days. At Danish auctions I would say that prices have trippeled the last 6 months  scratch

Still, 300 Euros is completely far, far out  Laughing 
30 might still be a bit too much Wink

It is a very, very rare Special edition goat, so the price is not unusual, - in Germany at least  geek
