Hello there,

I found your site over a link on the forum of the biggest Schleich collectors in the world, including me and some of my friends...
What has happened with the prices you are asking for the Schleich and other items?
Did you make a mistake with the komma on the wrong place, or are you making mis-abuse of the fact that some collectors want all the Schleich items?
Even when you are the most far away from the Schleich company, you never have to pay the prices for them, as what you are asking!
Please be reasonable!
Friendly greetings.



Really you said that affraid Laughing

Of course i said that!
He should be ashamed to ask prices like that, for not even very rare figurines!
He answered me this;

Is this some sort of joke?

I answered him back again;

No, this is no joke!
I think you have ridiculous prices for the Schleich items you are selling!
They are plastics from the 1980's-2000's, and not even super-rare ones.
For the money you are asking, i can buy composition models in a mint-state from the 1930's.
And they have a better way of modelling next to that in many cases(Lineol!).
But ok, nobody tells me to buy from you, but i won't recommend you either to any of my collector-friends or -contacts.
Most of the figurines you offer are available on e-bay(mainly Germany) for 10-30 % of the prices that you are asking, besides from the very rare ones of course.
I really wonder where you get the information on those prices from, and why you are asking those high prices...
Anyway, i still wish you luck with your sales, everybody has to make a living, isn't it?
Greetings

Tja, this how i handle people like this, i can't shup up in these cases... Laughing
That everybody has to make money is ok, but to almost steal money from people isn't very correct i think... Evil or Very Mad

Go get him Willy !!!!

I would maybe never have told him, but you are right. If somebody is new and exited about collecting, it like stealing candy from children, - not very nice.

I just wonder if he ever sells anything ????

I have seen some people from Australia list figures on ebay and they seem to go for a fair price, but others from Australia may not know to look there. If you don't know where to look how can you find the good prices!
No
They need to join this forum and get the good information confused from those who help each other! cheers Wink

Haha, IF he even replies... Rolling Eyes
But i only had the strong feeling that somebody had to tell these persons that they have ridigulous prices!
When somebody is bidding up very high on e-bay, it is his own choice, and this person can stop on the point where he or she is thinking that the price goes up to high.
Of course you have the choice not to buy from these persons, but i think, if they had some reasonable prizes, even some of us would buy there, and much better advertising then on this site they won't get very soon! cheers
When they react, i will share it again of course. Wink

My advise :

Don`t do it, unless you want to have doubles Wink
Some years I have bought doubles `cause I thought they would rise in price later, - they don`t lol!

Nowadays there are tens of thousands, - perhaps hundreds of thousands - of the "common" ones, You can buy them in lots for almost nothing at minor auktions.

Lol, I didnt explain it correctly. What I meant is I buy one more of each zoo model retiring because I actually collect two of every model thats all and maybe more when it comes to the antelopes. So right now I have one of many of the models and each year when they retire i buy one more.....I like to look at two rather than just one - or maybe I am greedy ha ha!

I'm using the same approach, Numaan! This time I'll probably have to buy my second bald eagle, at least. :)

Still, no info is available yet, although I had already asked everyone I know who might have the list.

Ohh, yes, I see what you mean . Many of them look great in herds Very Happy
I have recently also bought some of those that have been there for a LOOONG time, like the female rhino and the African elefant bull, they have changed quite a lot in the painting over the years, - at least mine are differnt from the first ones I bought Rolling Eyes

Thats exactly why I like to get two or three of each model but not all bought at the same time but over time. The time and country all produce different variations. I always think that at the start of a new range of animals the paintwork is good because they have just been designed and mass produced but then over time the quality sometimes drops (this is about China models only).

In Jan 2009 I saw an Indian Rhino in a toy shop in Berlin with the most unusual and beautiful paintwork and I didnt buy it. I didnt have enough on me and I really regret it. It was a much lighter and unusual paintwork you would have all been gobsmacked and it was the last one!!

Interesting, using two coloring variations of the same sculpting! you are really Schleiching!!!
I prefer different sculptings in the same animal, using more than one brand if possible... but, sometimes is not, like gazellas... and at this point Schleich has an advantage of several versions of the same animal! Schleich has more lions than Papo, Safari and CollectA toogether! And I'm not counting colouring variations!

By the way, is there any 2008 Schleich lion painted with the colours of a lion? Or are all very lightfull like lions of the paradise?

They do that quite often. Like here, the black rhino, when a baby and a dad was added to the range, they changed the colour of the mom.

How annoying for you! I hate it when something like that happens No

Thanks for that picture Susanne, I have to say I like the new colour better on the female.

Hey, they are back !!!!!

What happened Suspect ?

Well, I hope they stay.
Here are the Indian Rhinoes. The very old one and the one fro 2001. They look very similar, but there are differences. It is actually much more easy to see in a photo Shocked

among the six variations I will prefer the first one (more closer to me). So you buy it at different year. THanks for the sharing.

Oh, many thanks Susanne and Steve!
It's very nice to see the evolution of the species by Darwin... sorry, by Schleich!!!Laughing
And we have to do an artifitial selection!
Cause I love lions and if someday I have conditions to buy online... I'll want all ugly old Schleich lions... are you understanding? Ugly but I want them!!!
But these indian beasts are all very nice!!! I'm searching in all local shops for that creature but it was retired in 2008 and children haven't left one for me...
Well! I've already found the two boer adulte goats, so, who knows someday I'll find this one... unless Schleich, Papo or CollectA give us one in 2011!
Many thanks!

Hi folks

We are talking about two different things here - sculpting is one thing but paintwork is the other.

I have noticed paintwork vary over the years for models but remember that the first batches in any new year to me have the best paintwork and then sometimes drops then comes back again...oh well it is all hit and miss but yes if one is to buy a few copies of the same model then stagger those purchases.

I too need to get the bald eagle as I am sure it is on its way out. The one I have was bought brand new in Germany in 2001 and so the current one will definitely be different in colour and quality so its nice to see the variations.

I love the indian rhino pics and I also prefer the first one in the picture - that one is stunning. The re-sculpt was also really good as it because more refined and less clumpy looking. thanks for all the pics.

Oh, this is a sore subject for me as well! I like the young lion, but the adult one is too blond or slick or... I don't know... You see what I mean.

That's a paradox! Usually lion manes become darker with age... but boys prefer blond lions and with age... blond girls! That's a question of Seduction!:) I love you king

Hmm, perhaps I'll buy that fence with gate and the race horse set. Those are the only ones that I'm interested in and that I don't have yet.
There's lots of speculations going on in my mind now. The retired items usually give some clues about what's coming next. Now that they're retiring the Camargue mare and foal and the Przewalski mare, could it mean that they're making new ones to those breeds? After all the Quarter Horse stallion was introduced the same year that the mare was discontinued, and there's many more of these happening. The same could apply with the wagon, I mean not the covered one but the smaller one pulled by the Clydesdale mare. Maybe they're making a new "better" wagon? In that case my dream would become true and that would mean I've indeed inherited witch blood from my mother's side xD BUT, on the other hand, Schleich likes to make mommy-daddy-baby-families, so if they were going to make a Camargue stallion for example, why would they discontinue the rest of the family? Somehow I don't believe they'd make a whole new family since the "old" ones still look good enough.
Ok maybe you coulnd't make any sense of my babblings, which I completely understand. Today's been a very weird day. On the other hand I'm bursting out of happiness cos I found out I'd made it through a very dreadful linguistics examination after all though I was sure it went really badly. On the other hand I'm a bit depressed cos the horse of our equestrian vaulting team was put down today because of a tumor in his neck Sad And I started babbling again. Bad me.

Kirill they're retiring the black bear Shocked so maybe a moon bear will come out after all!

I can't believe they're retiring the racing set already. quite a few models that seem quite new are getting retired.

So, the Okapi is going, maybe that means they'll bring out a whole new family?

By the way, a new member on LG said she has the list for Schleich 2011! affraid

Thanks Susanne. I feel really warm in the heart now :) Well he was quite an old horse, at least 16 years, and he taught a lot to many people, but the trouble is we don't have a good enough vaulting horse anymore... And yeah, the wagon looks a bit uncomfortable for a joy ride.
Does anyone else think it's REALLY WEIRD that the older Arabian foal wasn't retired?? Like I said before it's very very rare for horses to have twins! I mean they made the new grazing Arabian foal so what's the use of having an other one?

Danke schoen, Torben!
Uh, Schleich has surprised me a lot with such a selection of items to retire scratch When I look at the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I see only two hits out of 11 guesses! Nevertheless, I can't stand sharing my detailed comments Cool:
- Fox: finally! And as predicted.
- Bald eagle: we already know there’ll be a new one in 2011, so no surprise.
- Black bear with cub: oh, no! One of my favorite Schleich figures! My intuition had been hinting me that one of Schleich bear families will go, but I was inclined to think it’d be grizzly bears (‘cause I like black bears more! Wink)…
- Roedeer family: people here we’re predicting that one of the deer families will be retired (Willy and Mihnea, for example), but we tended to think of white-tailed deers instead… Of course, the roedeers were definitely not the best Schleich figures, so no complains! I’ll only have to buy doubles.
- Red deer stag: it’s a bit outdated indeed, but why then introduce his wife and calf this year?! Maybe we’ll see a new stag in 2011? And hopefully in another pose (I dream of a head-down ready-to-poke-with-his-horns position)…
- Hare: it seems to me, Mihnea has predicted it. Not a masterpiece too, so - farewell to him.
- Okapi: not a masterpiece as well - too huge.
- Dromedars: I don’t collect camels, so I support this decision.
- Walrus: also as predicted by some of the forum members. And a very rational decision!
- Saguaro: it’s my second guess after the fox. Hm, I should ask my wife to present it to me as a New Year gift Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
- Baobab: rather awkward item, so maybe it’s high time for it to retire. I never liked it and haven’t still bought. And I think I won’t.

P.S.: Torben, where did you get this photo, by the way?
P.P.S.: I've counted 72 items on the above photo. It corresponds with the 75 new items we gonna see in 2011.
P.P.S.:

Hey, Roger, your dream is half-came true: Schleich is actually retiring the octopus and the walrus!

Moreover, Schleich has surprised us with some of the figures they should've, but aren't retiring! Shocked scratch
Here are just some quotes from our forecasts:
Kiryuha wrote:

- Bison male: they have discontinued the calf, so chances are high that his father will go too.
- The older Ostrich: who needs two male ostriches, both in standing poses?
... - Black rhino female (2001): why there should be two black rhino figures in similar poses?
- Hippo: the same reason as with the fox. Moreover, the hippo is a 14 years old model!Maybe we’ll see a new hippo figurine from Schleich in 2011? Although the competition from Papo and Safari is tough.
- Squirrel eating: this 2003 figure looks out-of-date near the newer Schleich squirrel.
You say, who needs two male ostriches or two black rhinos in almost similar poses? Ha-ha!!
And that veteran hippo is insubmergible! Maybe it's a favorite figurine of some of the Schleich top-managers?? Wink Laughing Laughing Laughing Just joking - profits are apparently on the first place when choosing model range.

WILLYBACOMAN wrote:

-The African elephants, they are out of time, and far to small for the scale.
-The Asian elephant family, again too old and too small.
Try to tell it in another place, Willy! :)

Too many deer families inedeed, but they've chosen to retire the [more finely crafted] roedeers instead.

3)American bison(children favourite for Western dioramas)
4)Giraffe(again,they want families)
5)Chimps(even if other apes are gone,the chimps still get good grades)
Right you are! While I was sure the bison will go, as his calf had done earlier.

Bald Eagle / Asian Elephant Bull / Male Hippo - these 3 figures are probably the oldest ones in the wildlife series so time for a change.
White Tailed Deer family - hopefully a new revised one? I wish Schleich would make a Pronghorn.
Older Ostrich and Older Black Rhino - time for a change too....
All of these guys, except the eagle, will be still waiting for their time to come...

When I see 2010 cathalog the fox looks like is trying to go away unobtrusively and the eagle looks like is not landing but preparing to fly away like did the eagle owl!
A brilliant remark, Roger! Your intuition here was 100% right Wink

You have probably missed [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by our friend Larry. Bald eagle is the only 2011 item we know about.

Thank You Torben for finding this list for us cheers About my feelings, I like roe deer family very much so I'm surprised about the schleich decision. Okapi is another surprise-this mean they will probably not make okapi calf this year Sad Other models not surprised me, except some of horses. I must buy Percheron before it disappear. What is strange for me-I can't see hippo in this picture. In my opinion they really should make a new one.

The schleich cart is being retired, does that mean the Clydesdale will be retired as well?

Probably they just didn't want to show this cart without horse or they have only this photo of this item. scratch

I don't think the Clydesdale mare is being retired, there would be a picture of her without the cart if it was so. All the official Schleich pictures of the cart always include the Clyde mare with it, so I think she's just part of the cart picture.
