I said this on STS, but the braids are disappointing. I remember when Schleich had much more realistic models, not for cute factor. I hope their wildlife turns out to be better.

I think they are aimed towards the younger collector :)

I agree, I don't like the braids, but the foal is precious.

I think the stallion looks like a lovely model, however the braided mare is not to my taste :)

The hyena is a given for me!  Looks way better than the first two from Schleich. The rattler as well. The rest I can do without. They have been done before and better. Such as the anaconda. The CollectA is far superior.

take out the farm/domestic animals and that fantasy crap and they're not bed. Still, Schleich animals always looks like they were designed for an animated childrens movie...

Technically, the new Schleich figure is a Boa, while the CollectA is an Anaconda.  Still, it does leave a little to be desired.  I like the new Tigers - Schleich's current Tigers look pretty bad.

Hmmm, I largely agree... I'll probably get the alligator and crocodile with moveable jaws, they look quite promising. And the hyena, too. The boid looks more like a Boa constrictor to me but a figure to pass on, anyways. Did they really think the dark patches had to be three-dimensional? ??? It looks like the snake has been partially... ehm... flayed. :P And the rhino had to be a Black Rhino again? What was the reason to retire the old one, the difference, other than texture, is not that obvious.

the crocodilians, parrot, cobra and rattlesnake interest me
but unless I stumble across them in a store I doubt I'll be getting any

I have the original Schleich boa. This doesn't one even come close.

Wow. I LOVE these models. While I say that every year, last year I felt let down upon seeing the Fjords. I really like how they reused some molds, too. I'm not wild about the manes on the Knabstrupper and the Pinto Stallions, but I'm really excited to add most of these horses to my barn.  :D

Ditto.  And I second that.

This site, from the same person, doesn't require Facebook: http://www.valinor.nl/schleich/nieuws.html

Also, unless I'm not paying that close of attention (and being Schleich, that is possible)--are there no new aquatic animals?

As a relative novice when it comes to model collecting can I ask, what process do the model makers go through when deciding and designing new models?

I mean is iut just based on 1 or 2 individuals or do they take any comments or feedback on board from sites like this or STS? It would be good if they did since we, along with the kids, are their customers!!

Companies often take feedback in various places like Facebook or direct  comments, but it eventually comes down to marketing decisions. Of the main companies, I have never heard of Schleich taking any direction from anyone in the public, but I don't really follow them that closely.
