Great additions. I have yet to see any of the new ones in person here. I can't wait until I get mine.

Thank you Aandmkw Very Happy

And thank you Roger, yes, you were right with your predictions for my collection Razz The sweet Andalusian mare (Made in Portugal cheers ) has become one of my most beloved models since she entered my collection in early January this year.

That's a very neat Appy photo there, also proving how cutified the new Schleich one is. I never got the ol' Schleich one, but I do have an interest in the Mojo Appy. I'm as well very happy with Ana's Fjord, because it looks like a horse as it is, and not idealized and cuti/beautified. It's an "everyday person" and not a "supermodel" as I see it. Maybe other Mojos have that quality as well. Unlike some of the new CollectA horses that Susanne has recently shown us, they are walking the horse catwalk indeed... Nothing wrong in that, it's just good to be down to earth sometimes as well, I think.

Congratulations on your new models, you're a fast buyer! I like the Appaloosa and the baby Hippo, but I can't even look at the Lipizzaner Mare (or Haflinger Mare or Shire Mare). Schleich saved me some money for other brands this year! Sad(o)):

Of course it is, also the Andalusian mare, although somewhat criticized due to her by some horse experts, has a much more acceptable design for me than the Princess. That is the point where Schleich always worked in terms of design. Giving a feminine or cute touch without removing the feeling of a realistic toy. You know I don't feel the same with Princess but it is useless to keep saying bad things to the poor girl. flower
I agree that Ana and Deborah are making a good work but I am very happy that Ana is working on Wildlife, that is my collection subject. :)
I enjoy following collections that are not all the same. Kristie has the most charismatic figures, with the laughing zebra, Papo crazy camel, Elvis the singing piglet and among them a masterpiece called Papothamus. It makes her collection very unique and beautiful. flower The same for your collection and all those with a personal touch. cheers

After lots of research I ordered a new bunch of wishlist-models from MPV Very Happy I really would always prefer to see them and investigate before buying, but still, Schleich seems to be the only brand in my local stores.
And even a good research about the figures, both her on STS and the world wide web, there'll be good and bad surprises, it seems.

Here you go, all from MPV except the Schleich Skunk.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The 2013 CollectA Clydesdale Stallion. I'm slightly dissapointed with this model. Maybe my expectations were too high. He still suffers from the pear-shaped body(seen from above), that seems to be part of all Deborahs sculpts. Then I wonder, do horses have pear-shaped bodies?? I've never seen one from helicopter view IRL.
There are some places where the paint deosn't cover him fully on the feathering on the legs, which annoys me a bit. Like my CollectA Shire Mare isn't completely in touch with the ground, the stallion isn't either, as you can see.
He is nice, but doesn't beat Shire Mare, I think.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

One thing that bothers me, is his extremely narrow face, as you can see here compared with the Shire... I wonder if that's normal for Clydesdales, or is it a flaw in the sculpt? Some of you horse experts may know? Rolling Eyes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The 2010 CollectA Appaloosa Stallion - though he really is a gelding, if you dare look at his private parts. This is a VERY lovely model, I think. He has become an instant favorite in my collection. Look at those eyes! So much life and personality I love you Also, he is a very humble horse, I think, compared with many of the other Deborah sculpts, that seem very 'Breyer' "flashy" like.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And the Mojo Chestnut Appaloosa Stallion Very Happy He is also a very humble guy. He's your everyday horse I love you Here with the 2013 Schleich Appy.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Papo Brown Bear Very Happy Now the little naughty cub found his mother. No more monkeybusiness for you lil' one! I bet the rest of my collection will be very happy for that cyclops
(What annoys me with both these models is, that their surface and colour doesn't match.. Might not be easy to see in the photo).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And Mojo American Black Bear. A gorgeus model I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Then Princess got two new friends. I can already hear them giggle with their girltalk Razz ..Now to the serious part.. The 2011 CollectA Arabian Mare is a wonderful sculpt, with lots of life and character.. but paintjob is awful, compared with my other CollectAs. I wish she had the surface and paint like Princess. Her biggest minus though, has to be the material, which is very soft (unlike the 2010-12-13 horses of mine, they're almost the quality of Schleich hard plastic). I wonder why CollectA made their 2011 horses that soft.. it's horrible! At least in my opinion. She seems to get dirty very easily, because of the very rubbery material. I did know about the softer material, but I'm surprised it's THAT bad Mad

The better one is the 2013 CollectA Akhal-Teke Mare Very Happy Great girl with lots of character too, and movement. I really like her shiny coat, which makes her very outstanding, but still fits with the rest. (There was once a My Little Pony I never got as a kid, but wanted, which had same colour and shiny surface.. now I got her, and she's grown up). She deosn't have the typical slim body of an Akhal-Teke though (according to my research), which I find a bit odd. She looks more like a mix... Or just a fat Teke, you can't even see her ribs.. Still why didn't Deborah make a pure Teke?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Then the 2010 CollectA Hanoverian Stallion I love you He is absolutely fantastic. Maybe the best horse in my collection bounce Here with his Appaloosa friend.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Such wonderful WONDERFUL faces. I'm melting drunken

Schleich Skunk was actually a gift for my boyfriend Razz

Fantastic additions and great pictures. Also very entertaining to read your post. Very Happy
The first thing I have to comment is that I agree completely with you, I would love these CollectA horses were manufactured with the same quality of Schleich horses. My lack of empathy with most of Schleich horses are related with their toyish design and not with their quality as toys. Very Happy
An excelent example is your Arabian mare, I love this sculpting. She is also very feminine but in a sensual way. I don't know if the movement is somewhat exagerated but I love it from the angle you're showing. But, when I touched it on shop, I disliked the rubber touch and also painting. Sad But we are never completely happy. For example, I wished Mojo Appalosa was not so matte as it is, however I think the matte finish results superb on black bear. Laughing
I find many collectors on forum that love appaloosas, I am not an enthusiast of it. I believe people love their patterns and maybe the visible white sclera helps people loving them. Though, their most common conformation, visible on Mojo and old retired Schleich, make them not appealing horses at all. Not sculptors fault, they made the best to make a good approach, but my total fault of enthusiasm with that breed. pale The CollectA Appi looks very tall like some old Appaloosas and it results more atractive to me. Very Happy To finish my long and boring comment. I would love to comment the standing pose of the CollectA Hanoverian, it is standing like Princess and many other horses, but while in Princess the expression is all focused on face, Hanoverian has expression on all body, loading of life a figure that is only standing. Very beautiful! cheers

Roger, your comment is not boring at all. It's very interesting to read your views cheers

I didn't know that a visible sclera was a typical thing for Appaloosas. I must study more horses study New Schleich doesn't live up to that then.

And I agree with your observation in the Hanoverian. Deborah did very well here. Also with the pose of the Arabian, yes very sensual, and ladylike. Maybe a little 'show'/'look at me' kind of way.

Congratulations for wonderful newcomers Carola! It's very interesting to read Your comments and to see Your choices Very Happy I think You choose super nice figures again. I'm in love in this Akhal Teke, must have it haha, so shiny thing Very Happy

About Arabian mare, I agree with both of You. I seen this model in toy shop and somehow couldn't decide to buy it, even if on photos it looked very nice. It's figure but material is quite annoying. Sad

About Mojo Appaloosa, I'm glad You like him, I think I would be happier if he had more defined spots and maybe less matt finish too. But I'm happy You like his "everyday horse" look, that's what I tried to reach sculpting this horse sunny Very Happy

Congrats again and thank You for sharing! Very Happy

Ana, your appy is very sweet and I'm happy to have welcomed him into my collection. He is, together with Izzy, I'd say, humble horses. They look like those I'll meet during a walk in the local areas. I think that's very great quality. They're 'real' horses, not only 'dream' horses.

Hi all cheers

Finally MPV got their stock updated Very Happy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Papo Oryx! And what is an antilope doing in my collection? I just think it's such a beauty. Unique markings and powerful. I assume this is a she. Maybe a bit too much shine in her coat, for my taste, but what a lovely animal nevetheless I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then Papo Tigress with cub! When I received her and took her out of the package is was just jaw drop! cyclops
My other Papo big cats greet her and the lil' one warmly.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The paintjob is very good I think. And those eyes are fantastic. Very expressive.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The cub is adorable. Think, she'll grow up into such a big magnificant and dangerous creature.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Collecta Friesier Stallion... well, like the Appaloosa, he's not a stallion, just pretending obviously. He's very gorgeous. Something very sweet and calm about him. He looks like a legend. Very lovely model, and the material is nice and hard like the other Collecta 2010 horses. Only thing, again, is his pearshaped body, seen from above.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then, I got a neat bridle for my beloved and also infamous Princess Razz Hopefully I'll be able to control her a bit more now.. or maybe things will go totally out of hand! At least I found a pink one for her.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At last, our Number One Prince Charming: CollectA Fjord Stallion! Girls are going crazy in the cabinet!
He is nice, very nice! Maybe a bit too much Disney. Ana's Izzy looks way more down to the ground. Her paintjob is nicer too. But I couldn't resist that charm anyway! Now I have two Fjords in my collection.

Congratulations Carola! I like the collecta fjord, not so keen on the clydesdale's narrow face. Thanks for pointing that out, I won't be buying it now, glad I found this out before I did!

What a lovely newcomers Carola Very Happy And with very interesting comments, it's so nice to read Your opinion about each of them. Very Happy
I also adore Papo tigress and got her recently, and as You described "jaw drop"-yes that was the feeling, it's outstanding model I love you Powerful animal with such delicacy for the newborn, ohhh sunny
I also like Friesian standing next to Akhal Teke, they look good together Very Happy
Congratulations, great lot! Sad(o)): Very Happy bounce

It is really interesting the way you present your additions. Very interesting to read and watch with great pictures. Very Happy
We can also drink your collector personality. flower drunken Wink
The Papo tigress with cub, as well the lioness, are those kind of figures that knock me out. cheers
It is curious that I like best your oryx than mine, mine has horns completely bent. Crying or Very sad
The accessory of your Princess is perfect for her. flower
I like very much this Friesian, maybe because it is closer to a Sports horse than a baroque type as someone explained here. The Fjord is closer to a character than a horse but he is really charming and atractive. Congratulations and thanks for your nice presentations! Very Happy

Thank you Susanne, Widukind, Álvaro cheers

Harriet, thank you, yes, as mentioned, the narrow face of the Clydelsdale really pulls him down, as the rest of him is very neat. Only thing now is just I wonder if such a narrow face is possible for such a horse?

Thank you Anna, tigress indeed shows the contrast of nature I love you

Roger, thank you Very Happy Well my Oryx has a slightly bend right horn. Might be difficult to see in the photos. Quite a shame. Maybe it ca. Be fixed with the warm water method I've heard about here?

By the way, got to correct one thing! It's a halter - not a bridle ofcourse silent

Yes I suppose having a kid from a previous relationship can scare some potential partners away. Good Izzy wanted to take care of him and his kid cheers

Two new members arrived a couple of days ago:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Papo Ardennais Draft Mare I love you My very first Papo horse. Indeed she is something VERY different from any other horse in my collection. She might not be a perfectly accurate sculpt, but she has such an incredible charm, and her completely non formal attitude is very welcome in the horse figurine world, I think Wink She's almost provocative towards all those slim 'perfect' 'dancing', top dollar breed samples. I totally love that Razz She's like, 'so what, Princess and your shiny friends, my leg itches, life is good without being strapped up in braids and painful dressage'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Princess certainly looks like an athlete in comparison(And funny how CollectAs make Princess look awfully bulky and clumsy. Very interesting to manipulate with looks when you use comparisons). Two lovely different girls nevertheless I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She's so sweet and seems alive, even her ears are in different positions from eachother. She's listening, paying attention. But I wonder, those eyes maybe look a bit too.. human Rolling Eyes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Can you believe these two are of the same brand? (The mare isn't even an old model, it says 2009 on her belly)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And just because I saw Susannes thread about all turning black - I discovered the Safari Percheron Very Happy So has he become my very first Safari. I found out he was retired, but fortunately MPV still had him.
I love this heavy breed, and his sculpt is just delicious! He's got all that muscle power i look for, standing proud and strong, awaiting instructions maybe?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

There's something innocent about his expression. And indeed he is quite strapped up, which i think makes him look very submissive, thinking of him as a character.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I LOVE this sculpt!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And with a Schleich lady Wink One bad thing about him though, is the paintjob. It's the worst in my WHOLE collection! I got him in a plastic back from factory I assume, and he was dirty on the sides of his butt. Is he SUPPOSED to be dirty I wonder?? And those numbers on his leg.. his birthday I assume.. but did they really have to do it like that?

Beautyful, beautyful, beautyful horses cheers

Both Safari and Papo have mde wonderful horses. You describe it so well. Like Roger said ( I quote from memory) Several of the Paop horses have in artistic value what they may lack in accuracy Very Happy

Those numbers on Safari models, they surely are a pain in the butt Crying or Very sad But never mind, that horse is magnificent Very Happy

You made some lovely pictures, they are a joy to watch Sad(o)):

Congratulations on your new additions, Papo Ardennais Mare is also the only Papo horse in my collection, I'm thinking also about getting the Boulonnais Mare from Papo.

Thank you Very Happy And yes, I've also got a good eye for the Boulonnais actually Wink Why did you chose the Ardennais as your first and so far only Papo horse? Seems we have same taste just there. Very Happy

There are several reasons why I like the Ardennes mare, the most important reason you also can find on your Princess. When I see this mare, I see the Papo Ardennais and not only one more horse. Great how you check these details of the ears and also her pose that is magnificent. Both of these characteristics helps this figure being more unique. Very Happy
Also, how many figures of this breed can you find among similar brands? Very Happy
The Percheron is also interesting, I enjoyed the birthday comment! Laughing I only have to tell you that French cuisine can be delicious but, when we are not careful, we can end very heavy like your collection. Who's next? Boulonnais? Heavy but not too much! Wink

Hi Carola, sorry for late reply, I bought the Ardennais Mare because she's different than other horses I have (mainly Schleich) and because no other brand (as far as I know) made the Ardennais or Boulonnais Horse.

Roger, thank you for your comments Razz i like how you compare too much good food and heavy breed collection, but hopefully I at least, can stick to only a heavy collection Very Happy

I'm afraid I've entered a dangerous track... The track of Papo horses! Very Happy And yes indeed I have warm feelings for the Boulonnais too. Heavies are just a personal preference.

I agree, very nice with these breeds, they are in no other brand, as far as I know. And it's always interesting to pick out the qualities of different brands. Papo gives playful life to their horses, which Schleich seems to lack a lot, as most of their models are quite static I think.

No problem ever Very Happy As Roger mentons also yes, this is a rare breed among brands. But VERY nice horses!

They remind me a little of the Belgian draft horse, but still they are different .

Hi All  cheers Here are my latest members:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

First is my wonderful gift from Susanne :heart:The ol' Schleich Smilodon, and with him came a little duck. As Susanne said, he shouldn't be lonely travelling  Very Happy I think they argued a lot on their trip, as you can see, it seems they continue the tense discussion :cyclops:The duck though, seems to not being too seriuos  Razz Speaking of design, the smilodon does have a good potential. He has a nice agressive stance and good muscles. I hope Schleich will update this model. This exact model has quite some patina, which gives him story and charm  I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Next is the fantastic CollectA Baird's Tapir Calf from 2013. CollectA really have amazed this year I think, and this will certainly not be my last 2013 CollectA wild animal!  Very Happy Isn't she adorable?!  I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

For now, my Schleich Malayan Tapir will have to take care of her. I might have to get her mother really....  Rolling Eyes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

MPV Special Schleich White Friesian, I kind of had to get too  Embarassed This is completely just a colour variant, as he is still marked '09 on his belly. Here he is with the original black version. I will post more photos [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].  I discovered how great the ol' Black really is...  Rolling Eyes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

CollectA Dobermann :DThis is an older figurine, as it says Procon 2006 on his belly. I think Dobermanns are absolutely handsome dogs, so I wanted my own miniature :cheers:Ofcourse I hope for a brand to make a new muscular and fierce version, but this one is good for now. He looks like a younger, more 'cute' representation of this breed. The markings are not quite right, but there's no doubt what he is!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Those eyes are gorgeus  I love you
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Schleich Schwarzwalder Stallion. He has a lovely darkbrown shade  Very Happy He's Made in Germany.

I've had his girlfriend for ages, and I thought her loneliness had to end really...  Razz

She is a bit lighter in colour.

Continued --->
Safari Mythical Realms Unicorn  cyclops I was never fond of the Schleich ones, and I saw this as a very good alternative. Also, a good Sculpt for a"horse". Still it(it seems it has no gender) is not just a horse with a horn, it does have 'lion tail' and 'goat feet'. But it was expensive compared to regular horses: 12,50 EUR.... Here with Schleich Falaroy.

Safari does good horse sculpts indeed. Such a shame what they have there, it seems they lack in manufacturing quality. The plastic is good though, almost as Schleich.

He might not be completely accurate, but he is wonderful, and as I also mentioned in my comments about my first, the Ardennais Mare, he is full of playful life! He is simply a joy to look at. Head turned in a cheeky way, ears turned different from eachother. yes, he is good, very good I love you

Great figures, Carola! Very Happy
Susanne generous as always! flower Papo Shire horse is a beautiful movement, you are taking pictures from many different angles and it gooks wonderful in all of them. Almost a sumptuous figure. Very Happy
I agree that the Friesian works much more realistic in black color but I am sure girls will feel more seducted with the white version. I think that figure with zebra strips would result also great! geek
Where is your Malaian tapir made in? scratch

Lovely additions! Indeed that dobermann is quite handsome, far more so than in the catalogue pictures I've seen of him. His physique reminds me too of that of a young dog - or a bull terrier x greyhound cross I once knew.
