Today one of my collector wishes finally came true.
The magnificent Condor flew from Germany! Joined by the '96 Stone Marten!


With the rest of the fantastic series:


And stone marten with the one I already had (the darker one behind), looks like a colour variation:


Hope you enjoy them as I do and thanks for watching!

WOW ! Those are some of the most wonderful models that Schleich ever made cheers 

We all love the birds of prey, but I remember when I was searching desperately for the marten, but somebody always bid over.
After months of defeat, I got completely crazy, and bid 12 Euros ...a lot , I thought 6 - 7 years ago ... and YES !! Very Happy  Was I happy when the mailman brought that little critter  Laughing

Thank you everyone! Applause 
Robert, I have both versions of the bald eagle with spreaded wings, but they don't come close to those 7 magnificent birds!

So much trouble for such a small figurine! I've lost the Bullyland Alpaca twice already, because someone bid over the last seconds. Arghhhh!

Congratulations Bojan, these two figures were removed from my wish list when Susanne found the Bullyland counterparts for me, the huge condor with open wings and the lovely marten. I think those retired Bully figures are as rare as these ones, though, not so many people searching them. The Schleich versions are beautiful and if I was able of getting them for reasonable prices, I am sure they would find a place in my collection. Very Happy
I think the birds of prey series, is one of the series of Schleich that gave more prestige to the brand and many people love them, myself included. Very Happy Congratulations for completing the series! cheers

Thank you, T4 and Roger. I think the Schleich birds of prey series can be easily compared to CollectA's antelopes.
They established the brand!
I agree about Bullyland Condor and Marten, they're well done (saw them in Susanne's collection), but they're almost impossible to find. I never saw them in any store or ebay.

I think it is a good comparison, if we compare them directly, I think CollectA antelopes have a generally better quality, are also figures more exigent in terms of manufacturing. But if we think what is offered during their commercial lives, so I think that Schleich birds of prey were the best being offered during the first half of previous decade, the 2nd half of the same decade is marked by Papo big cats superior quality and now CollectA antelopes are a highlight of these last years, though, the average quality being offered is higher now. Very Happy

Congratulations Bojan! Both are lovely figures. The Condor is one of my all-time favorites by Schleich -- I think it is beautifully ugly. That is a real catch!
