(Schleich Collector Secrets and Tips :3)
« on: October 22, 2018, 09:07:05 AM »
Collectors all have their own tricks up their sleeves to help with growing their collections. I thought this would be a great place to share some of your best tips and tricks for Schleich collecting  ;)

My main tip for Schleich collecting is to search on eBay.de, a.k.a German Ebay. Shipping is often cheap even when converted from Euros to other currencies, and there are often very rare and uncommon figures up for bargains! Schleich as we all know is a german company, so therefore they are sold in abundance in Germany, resulting in a lower asking price for figures that run for almost 10 times that amount in other countries. Not to mention everyone I've worked with has been very pleasant and polite  ^-^

Share your own tips!

Welcome, @_lyds__ , and good tip.

In particular, with reference to Ebay, my tip is to look at large bundles. There are often hidden gems in there that only the most eagle-eyed bidders spot. You have to know what you are looking for and not rely on titles and descriptions.

Edit - by the way, I moved this topic from the walk-arounds section to the general animal toys discussion section:)

Great topic!
I certainly agree with animaltoyforum when it comes to big bundles!
To beetle or not to beetle.
