Another wonderful surprise : A beautyful, African AAA-elefant from Simone ( Sortepletter) cheers

Of course she must keep her fine, red bow on. My old AAAfant is quite jeloux. Perhaps I should give her a bow, too scratch

I bet Whooly Rino likes that snow, especially because its Danish Razz

I actually thought the turtle was a real living one, and thought maybe you were pulling a hoax, but then the picture below proved his true origin.

What lovely additions you received! I especially love the silver deer. I have the exact same deer except he is tan.
The foxes are cute too, love their poses and colors.
And of course I'm glad you like the flocked deer. Now I'll have to see if I can uncover my two weird versions of this deer, covered in red and purple with feathers on their necks. That's how they were made too.

Thankyou, dear friends flower

I enjoy so much reading your comments.
It is fun to see how different people prefer different models , - this is one of the reasons that this forum is never booring cheers

Fantastic additions, Susanne! Very Happy
MArx figures are specially well sculpted. I have them in white and I love them. Very Happy
I think it is not the first time you see a silver polar bear once it is a grizzly according with Willy and Tim, I am still convinced that it is an American black bear. Very Happy
The deer is excelent, mainly body, it is a white tailed deer, maybe a mule deer, not sure too. The beaver is also identifiable, the standing pose is more characteristic of the American species what is logical as long as Marx is a North American brand.
Otheres are also nice, mainly the McDonalds bird, a species rarely seen. Very Happy

Found them, Hope you don't mind if I post them here:

They are a bit smaller and are rough with sparkles that they love to shed everywhere, not flocked like the regular one is. Also I just noticed the antlers are black.

Where on earth did you find them ? Laughing Laughing

Yes, yes, of course it is ok that you show them here, I LOVE it when we get comparing/additional pictures.
It makes the forum SO much more interesting Very Happy

I got them at a bookstore called Borders that recently went out of business due to poor management. They were marked as Christmas decorations. They also have gold and blue fawns but I'm not certain where I packed those.
Personally I think they look like they are ready to go to Las Vegas lol!

Big congratulations to you Susanne on so many great newcomers! cheers
I think the Marx bear is indeed a brown bear, or grizzly in the USA, the shape doesn't suit for a black bear as Rogerio mentioned, but ok, it is possible to. Laughing

Willy, it is nice to have again the chance of discussing that figure with you. Very Happy The Marx figure is officially a grizzly bear. So you are right. Also, the large foread and pointed muzzle show that they wanted to make this animal. :)
My insistence, is useless, I am actually trying to show that they used the body shape of an American black bear. The animal doesn't have a hump like a grizzly, the profile is typoical of an American black bear and the back is also not massive enough for a Grizzly. However it is a Grizzly, you know perfectly that most part of brands concentrate their efforts on head sculpting, as I usually comment, a beautiful face/head with a bizarre body makes an apealing figure, the opposite is not true, it doesn't matter to most people how good is the general figure as long as head is not good enough. monkey cheers

I agree, it seems it is a Black bear with grizzly head scratch After the Pizzly, maybe we are watching the first barizzly or Grizribal ? Laughing

Golseagles, your two Ladeer Gaga are incredible cheers

I think I'm going to start calling them that. "Ladeer Gaga, live in concert." Maybe the real Lady Gaga could use them in a photo for her next album art. lol!

I think it has to do with the time they were made in, and the awereness of how an animal looks exactly was not very clear to most people.
A bear was just a bear, only polarbears were different, and even they looked much like white brown bears most of the time. Shocked

well, I don't know about this Marx serie ? Those models have been made by a very good wildlife sculptor. The American wildlife series by MARX are really serious models even for modern eyes. IMHO it is not only a matter of time, some companies were more on the accuracy point than others.

I also find Marx figures very well sculpted. The ambiuous sculpting of the bear and the white-tail with antlers pointed outwards, don't turn them bad figures for sure. Very Happy
Also it is not surely a question of when they were made. There are good and bad works in every periods of the animal toy history. Very Happy
A recent example is the first generation of Safari figures: Here the same bear in black and brown in a not very interesting sculpting. Safari just turned the brand with best bear sculptings in my opinion. Only the painting don't give them justice.

Sorry to comment so late! Congratulations on your fine additions, Susanne!

I really like the woolly rhino. It looks so much better than the official pictures.

The silver deer is gorgeous<3


The sloth looks a bit like the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (the set in the right corner) but with different paintjob. But I guess that many China-companies use the same moulds.. :) Anyway, it's really nice!
