13879 Black Angus Bull [Viscount]First Impression
: He is very smooth and nice looking. I think I like him better than the older Black Angus Bull, because he looks less bumpy and more velvetty and his pink nose is so cute. Second Opinion
: Not as cuddly and velvet as anticipated, but his posture is interesting and from the side, he has a shark life neck, which is quite cool.Verdict
: Nice enough[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13880 Black Angus Calf [Elize]First Impression
: A very cute little thing. Looks like a curious little baby and looks very sturdy. The design is smooth and velvetty and makes the calf look soft. And that lovely pink nose!Second Opinion
: She is chunky and cute and that pink nose is so precious.Verdict
: So soft and presh![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13881 Texas Longhorn Calf [Dorothy]First Impression
: The cutest baby. I love it already. I wana has! The markings are cute and look less blotchy than on the parents. I like especially the circle on her forehead. This little thing is certainly one of my favs already.Second Opinion
: Oooh she takes after her dad. She is very cutesie, with nice details and a not too bad paintjobVerdict
: Cute, but not a worthy update of the model. The older version is just that much better.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13882 Sheep [Dolly]First Impression
: Looks soft and gentle and sweet. Similar to the former sheep, just a bit more cute. This one is the one to move in though. I like my sheeps cuter.Second Opinion
: She looks nice and sort of like a porcelain statuette. A bit toyish, but I like her better than the previous model, which creeped me out a bit. Verdict
: Nice.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13883 Lamb [Puffles]First Impression
: This cute cutie. Looks like it is an actual plushy and not made of plastic. I really love it and it is certainly moving in.Second Opinion
: Not as cutesie as the promo photo's would have you believe. Adorable as butts though. I really like her.Verdict
: So adorbs![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13891 Dachshund [Quill]First Impression
: What a cute little floofer. I want to adopt this lil one for sure. He doesn’t really look like a purebred dachshund though. I am really charmed by him, purebred or not, though.Second Opinion
: Quite a lovely lil thing, actually. His anatomy isn't far off and this colour might be rare but not entirely out of the water.Verdict
: Very cute[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13892 Dwarf Schnauzer First Impression
: Cute, but a bit generic. It will make a good gift for my cousin, though, who really loves schnauzers.Second Opinion
: Not bad, but not good either. I got her anyway because she is quite cute, but not because she is especially well made.Verdict
: Oh well...I am weak[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13893 Maine Coon Cat [Lüwe]First Impression
: The modeling is fine, only the tail looks rather weird. The colors are a bit disappointing, but I like that Schleich is adding cat breeds to their series again.Second Opinion
: The colors are flat in person, like in the promo pics, but he is shaped not half bad and I really like how large he is.Verdict
: Not half bad.
42478 Golden Retriever on a Walk [Tosh]
First Impression: It is the chocolate lab, but recollered, but the color really suits her. I like that there is a boy in the set, because the stable could use a few more men around, haha. Yep, I am down for this!
Verdict:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42479 Shiba Inu Mother and Pup [Haruka and Hachi]First Impression
: A cute set, I like. I wana has. The female looks very accurate, albeit a bit more fluffy than normal. The pup looks scruffy and like it is undergoing that growthspurt that just pulls the entire body out of proportion. The pup is cute and the mom looks very nice as well. They are definitely moving in.Second Opinion
: They are lovely. I like their shape and their details. They are a little bit too orangy, they could have more white on the face and chest, but overall aren't too bright in colour.Verdict
: Aju Nice![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42480 Puppy Penn [Biscuit, Kipper and Scamper]First Impression
: Oh yes! Look at these three cute faces. I like the lab pup better in blond actually, makes it seem more expressive. And look at those two other fluffers. The black and tan pup is of course my fave. Good accessories as well. I love it and I want it now!Second Opinion
: The puppies are very cute and surprisingly solid. The assecories are a bit meh, but the blanket and teddy are well made.Verdict
: Supercute, nice set!
Horse Club[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13884 Paint Horse Mare [Karmijn]First Impression
: She looks very pretty. I like her colors and the pink nose, of course. Her motion is nice enough, albeit a little awkward. Her body is a bit square and her legs are awkwardly attached, but that is really the only thing I have against the posture. And I am still not a fan of braids.Second Opinion
: She is not as special as I expected her to be. She is pretty, but doesn't give me that special feeling that I expected her to do.Verdict
: Very pretty.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13885 Paint Horse Gelding [August W Booth]First Impression
: I like most things about this guy, save for the slightly too long torso. He is at ease, he has a good coating, flaxen mane and tail, which I like as well. He is certainly very appealing, but has the things we usually give schleich flack for.Second Opinion
: I was a little disappointed when he showed up. In personal he doesn't have that little extra x-factor he seems to have in the promo pic. He is a very nice model tho.Verdict
: Charming, but not as 'unf' as I expected[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13886 Paint Horse Foal [Juniper]First Impression
: Gosh this is such a nice model. She is cute and has a visible personality. The colors work well and one can see she takes after her mother. The molding reminds one of CollectA a bit, which is very pleasing.Second Opinion
: She is somehow different from other schleich models. In between CollectA and Schleich, so to say. A very pleasant model with nice shapes and colors. She is also rather big.Verdict
: A very nice model . I do hope this is the future direction schleich will take[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13887 Lipizzaner Stallion [Maegor]First Impression
: HOLY FRIGG NO, this is schleich, not bullyland! Not even a pink nose can make up for this monsterousity. Yes it will move in for story telling purpose, but goodness me this thing is gastly.Second Opinion
: Not as bad as I initially judged, but certainly not the style I hope schleich is going to keep up.Verdict
: Eh...[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13888 Trakehner Mare [Winter]First Impression
: A very pleasant mare. One of the nicest of this year. She has a relatively well done posture and even the braids seem to work very well with the model. The colors work well and she is rather well balanced. Second Opinion
: I expected, from some pictures I saw on instagram that I wouldn't like her as much, but I actually do. She is delicate and slender and a bit of a princess. Her head is not all there, but I warmed up to her.Verdict
: She has flaws, but I like her regardless.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13889 Knabstrupper Stallion [Astijger]First Impression
: He is very handsome. Kitty finally will have a husband. His colors are soft and the base mold is one we already know, guess which. He has a very handsome face and I like the color gradation in his mane and tail. And look at those freckles on his cheeks. Yes he is one of my favs this year!Second Opinion
: He is wonderful, a lot of nice details, can you spot the heart shaped spot? The anatomy is quite alright and I like his hairdo, haha.Verdict
: Very handsome, I like![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
13890 Knabstrupper Foal [Linke]First Impression
: Easily my favorite horseclub model this year. Short and stout and scruffy. A lad with a lot of personality and quite looks. Nice color balance and I love the way his tail works. He is certainly going to be one of the first models to move in in 2019~!Second Opinion
: I like this lil lad so well. He is really what I expected him to be and he just wrapped me up. My photo far from does him justice. He is very well done and like I expected, a stallion.Verdict
: Very good! This is one of my favs.
42456 Tourney Trakehner Mare [Cheryl]
First Impression: Very Papo, not bad. So I am curious to see if the blanket is removable or not. The painting of the body is not at all bed, very nice dappled color. I just think the whole design is just not all that good looking.
Verdict:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42457 Tourney Friesian Stallion [Blackice]First Impression
: At first I was like lolnope, but the longer I look at the image, the less I dislike him. I am so biased for Friesian’s lmao. He is a bit wonky, proportion wise, I mean that neck in relation to those legs, I think not. I will warm to him eventually, I am sure of it ^^
Second Opinion: A chunky boy. I like him a lot, but his neck is huuuuge. And his legs, I know it is for balance, don't work like that.
Verdict: He my fren.
42458 Hannah's Guest Horses and dog Ruby [Elena, Milktoast and Ruffian]
First Impression: Okay, I know these are supposed to be Quarter Horses, not the Appaloosa’s the OG versions of these models were. So why did Schleich not just pick the actual QH’s from 2018, because I liked those waaaay better. Overall the set is very nice though, good details, like the dog having a stick and that little blue bird.
42459 - 42462 Horse Club Girls Blanket and Halter
First Impression: Yes I like, very colorful and with designs and stuff! All of them!!!
42481 Pony Agility Training [Nestle and Murphy]
First Impression: Quite a charming set. The shetland mare looks nice with in chocolate brown, got another conga going over there. I love the other pony, I am likely going to say he is an Icelander, so Lofn has a mate. He is a very active and well painted young lad, and I like him! It is a nice and well put together set and I am eager to get it.
42482 Pony Agility Race [Myfanwy]
First Impression: Oooh this mare is all I need. I have recently acquired a repainted Welsh Stallion and now he has a mate, yay! She looks very good in bay and I sure as heck want to get her. The set is moderately appealing, I think most out of all four sets this year, this big tires, the flames, haha.
Verdict:[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42483 Pony Slalom [Rowan]
First Impression: Multi-use, jumping and slalom, yay. The pony looks pretty sweet on roan, I am down for this pony for sure. I quite like her. Her proportions are a little bit wonky, but schleich is better at ponies as of late. Most certainly going to get this one!
Second Opinion: Turns out the pony is a stallion. He doesn't have perfect posture, but he otherwise looks very handsome. I am very pleased with him!
Verdict: Very pleased!
42484 Pony Flutter Curtain [Briony]
First Impression: Look at those gay colors, how pretty ^^. The shetland mare looks quite cute in palomino. This set is last one on the list though and I am not in a special hurry to get it.
First Impression: Just some iron fencing for the sheep or cows or what ever.

14818 White Tailed Deer Stag [Morris]First Impression
: A smooth and proud lad. He is very handsome by the first looks of him and the paint job is very pleasant. His antler looks good and he has quite good posture. He will most certainly move in.Second Opinion
: He is nicely build, his antlers are impressive and his fur looks like it is made of felt. Great model.Verdict
: Very well done[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14819 White Tailed Deer Doe [Argella]First Impression
: Such a beautiful and proud lady. She has great posture, looks very alert. Beautiful colors and charming overall. She looks great and I very certainly want her to move in with me.Second Opinion
: She is sweet, she is graceful, she she pretty.Verdict
: Kudo's to schleich[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14820 White Tailed Deer Fawn [Elliot]First Impression
: What an adorable thing. Very disney, but I like that. Seems smoothly painted and I really like the pose. Very pretty, kudo’s to schleich here. This one is moving in for sure!Second Opinion
: He is so cute and is so disney and it is not schleich's usual style but I like it anyway.Verdict
: Talk Disney to me.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14821 Wolf [Rugou]First Impression
: This fierce animal! And those wicked green eyes. I love him already. I am going to get him ASAP. The colour gradation and the body language. He is a great beast and I love him already. One of my favs this year.Second Opinion
: No bad, but not as breathtaking as the promo pics. I like the posture and the colours aren't halfbad, but he seems unfinished. And his eyes are loopy.Verdict
: Not bad, but not great.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14822 Lynx [Rajan]First Impression
: Aside from the paintjob being rather meh, this is a very nice model. The pose is very nice and the facial expression doesn’t look like he is challenged for a change. I am very curious to see if he is in proportion to the other wild cats. He will surely move in.Second Opinion
: Terrible plaintjob, but nice posture. Verdict
: Minimum Effort[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14823 Quokka [Milo]First Impression
: This is very nice. A species that only specified brands have as model, usually. It is happy little animal and I enjoy this model a lot. I will certainly get it when it comes out!Second Opinion
: Oh this is a definate hit! It is a very cute lil thing and he looks rather realistic. The only unfortunate thing is the brand stamp on the belly and part of the side.Verdict
: I am in love! One of the best this year!!![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14825 Lioness [Aaliyah]First Impression
: Hmmmm so she smooth. Oh yes she is a sexy lady, she is powerful and she is beautiful. She has great details and I feel like schleich is making progress with this one and that is certainly saying something. She will move in for sure.Second Opinion
: My photo doesn't do her justice. She is slender and her coat is shiney and everything about her is smooth. She doesn't have loopy eyes and her musculature is rather nice.Verdict
: A very pretty lady.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14826 Komodo Dragon [The Jabberwock]First Impressio
n: Probably not the best model of this species out there, but he doesn’t look all bad. He looks kinda mean and I am going to get him. I hope he is as gnarly in person as he is on the pick. I am only a bit puzzled on the head held up so high, they don’t seem to do that often irl.Second Opinion
: Much better than anticipated. He looks like he can walk right off of the shelf. It isn't 100% accurate to what the beast looks like irl, but better made than most models this yearVerdict
: Very well done![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14827 Ringtailed Lemur [Maurice]First Impression
: He looks very funny. I am quite eager to compare him to my collecta lemur. From this angle, the posture seems to be very okay, the facial expression just looks a wee bit loopy. He will surely move in tho.Second Opinion
: He doesn't measure up to the CollectA version, but by schleich's current standard, he isn't half bad. He looks a bit funny, but doesn't have too many flaws
Verdict: Nice enough.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14828 Racoon [Rocket]First Impression
: Ooh looks good. Well molded and the colors seem to be well done as well. Kudo’s there, this trashpanda is going to move in!Second Opinion
: I am very pleased by the colors and the shape, but holu maloley, it is so huge. There is no scale to the years nine is there.Verdict
: HUGE![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14829 Tarantulla [Mosag]First Impression
: Ooooh creepy crawley. Very keen on seeing what the size is going to be. Looks pretty detailed and well colored. Not a fan of spiders tho lmao.Second Opinion
: I am still not a fan of spiders, picking this thing up even gave me gooseflesh in the shop, which means it is a convincing model, Save for the eyes. I really like how it turned outVerdict
: Well done schleich[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
14830 Okapi [Sultane]First Impression
: I suspect this is a female individual and boii is she thicc. She is a bit bulky in shape, but the painting seems good. Her ears are so cute in the way they flop about and her head seems better in proportion to her body than that of the old model. She will move in for sure.Second Opinion
: She is so small and slender and totally not what the promopic made it look like. Her base painting is well done, but the striped on her legs are rather flat. Verdict
: She is quite nice, but a bit small[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42472 Wolf Mother and Cubs [Lyarra with Rafe and Gregory]
First Impression: The mommah is a familiar mold, but she looks great in grey. I really like her. The pups look very cute. I especially like their posture. I am definately going to get these cuties!
Second Opinion: I heard a lot of descenting opinion on them. But I like moms looks and the pups are both little rascals. I love Rafe's howling pose and Gregory looks so smug, I love it!
Verdict: I like them!
42473 Bear Mother and Cub [Maege and Jorelle]
First Impression: The mommah looks funny and the cub looks kinda cute. The sculpt of both looks okay, but not special, as does the color. They are totally going to move in though, such a good addition to my bear family.
42474 Wild Life Learning Chart
First Impression: This could be interesting. Is it going to be just those cards, or the animals included? Only those three? Is it a set??? So many questions.
First Impression: This seems more like what the modern consensus about this beast is at. It is more like the swamp dweller we now think it was. The legs do seem a little too thin. The colors seem just fine. Not my type of model tho.
First Impression: Eh, not a big fan of this model, which is not a new mold, just new colors. He looks a bit awkward and a bit strange. The paint job doesn’t seem too bad tho.
First Impression: We already know this guy, just in another color and this color is not an improvement, stop doing this schleich![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
First Impression: It looks a little bit awkward on the head, but otherwise very nice. The colors are flashy. Is that stance accurate???
Second Opinion: What gnarly beast, he is great.
First Impression: Not bad, looks like a bad ass walking tank. I might actually get it if it appeals to me in person.
Eldrador Warriors[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
42493 Fire Bull [Nandi]First Impression
: Oh my goodness yes. This best looks so incredibly bad ass. I want it I need it! It is such an amazing looking thing. It looks like a pagan god and I love it! It will move in ASAPSecond Opinion
: He is smaller than I expected, but non the less amazingly done. He has a lot of details and great coloring and it is just such a character!Verdict
: An actual DC Comics Character
42494 Ice Spider
First Impression: More creepy crawlies and this one looks like something I really wouldn’t want to meet. Pretty neat sculpt and good color scheme, not something I would get though.
42495 Battle Crab with Weapon
First Impression: Too comicy tbh. It is an interesting design. In the thematic colors, which is cool. Very not my thing.
42496 Armoured Turtle with Weapon
First Impression: TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE. Jkjk, he looks too old for that. He is very funny looking, but not especially nice or something like that. Not something I would want.
Bayala[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
70578 Moon Unicorn Stallion [Calydor]First Impression
: Schleich is all over the place. Making a bullyland looking horse but also making this breyer-esque beauty. I am really really into this one. He is very handsome and I can’t wait to get my grubby hands on him. Second Opinion
: A very interesting model with a lot of great angles. He is rather small though, which really surprised me. He is a good inch shorter than the pega mare.Verdict
: Handsome, but a bit of a small one.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
70579 Star Pegasus [Nimue]First Impression
: MY FAVORITE THIS YEAR, SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL, I WANT HER NOW.I AM FANGIRLING SO HARD HNNNGH!!! Everything about her looks so perfect and all details are right and I am so in love and I will buy it as soon as she is on the market!!!!Second Opinion
: I begin to get the feeling Bayala and horseclub have different sculptors. The amazing detail and the wellshaped and proportionated body of this model just is so well done. There is so much love and attention in this model that just knocks my breath out of me. This is defo one of the best models this year. I love her so much.Verdict
: MY NEW FAV MODEL[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
70580 Commet Unicorn Foal [Alyan]First Impression
: Such a cute and pretty little thing. I love the posture and colors a lot. And it makes the perfect foal between Calydor and Yoru. I am a big fan! This little friend is definitely moving in ASAPSecond Opinion
: A very wonderful model. Definately a bit more toyish than the mare, but non the less very well made. The colors work very well and he is just so cheerfull and nice.Verdict
: A lovely model that is a good addition to the shelves!
