For all you Schleich Collectors:

What models do you consider as being rare or hard to find? I know the Brown Pelican is meant to be rare but you see it fairly often on auction sites - all be it rather expensive. 

What models were issued in limited numbers?

I belive that one of the most rare figures is the wisen  ^-^.

The European Bison is, in my opinion, one of the best model ever made by Schleich.

A lot of human and very old figurines are very rare. I am not a Schleich collector but i think for animal figurines is the WWF serie very rare and very expensive. I also know that a beagle in a special colour is also very rare.

What figures are in the WWF series? I am not familiar with these.

The most recent acquisition of a Schleich model for me is the Musk Ox. Any retired figure is a rare figure sooner or later. And this musk ox is no exception. But owning one feels like accomplishing one more quest in the search for the Holy Grail of animal collectibles. Excelsior!!!

So what is next on your 'wanted list'?

Hi, I've been collecting Schleichs for a long time. I have a large collection, and one specific model I own has me wondering. I have all three of the 2003 African Elephants, the bull, cow, and calf, all of which are brown. However, I also have a gray calf, same model as the brown calf, just a different color. Also made in 2003. It also has a blue dot on its front left foot. I can't find it anywhere online because all models everywhere else are brown. I don't know if this is rare, special edition, or someone painted it and brought it back to the store.

Did have a bit of a hunt for the Gharial, that was a tricky one.
