Thumbs down Papo paint problems!

As Papo becomes more and more realistic with some species,they have started to destroy they're older models.Here are some examples of horrible paintjobs:

1lion became almost orange
2lioness the same
3lion cub is now yellow with red spots
4leopard is also orange

Some other strange things:

The mallard duck now has a small piece of land under her feet.I have the original model and it is much better!

Hi WH, nice to see you here too now.
So it worked out.
But now you have to learn how you put pictures here.

Hm , that's not a good news.
You mean you've got the older versions of those Papo figures and compared them with newer ones in a shop?

I have the older versions and the new ones are just horrible!
I can't put photos of those "novelties" because I saw them in a shop!
"Hey lady,can you give me your camera to take some photos of your merchadinse?"It would have been strange...
I don't find any internet pics to show you their horrible details.But I will try!

I haven't noticed the colours have gone down hill, but I haven't bought any Papo recently so I couldn't say. I agree though, that those pictures do look orange and yellow compared to the models I have.
So, why do you think this is happening?

I can't imagine the company saying:
"We had so minor problems mixing the colours!Don't worry,people.Everything is going to be fine!"
I guess it is related to the new white lions.Maybe Papo felt that the new ones will be sold more often,so they didn't try to make the older ones that nice.

I saw these colour-changes in Schleich lions to, and more figurines.
Some are obvious, like in the giraffes, to fit to the newest ones, they have smaller and more spots now, and white belly's too.
Here are some pics to compare.


14363 Lioness,first version


Second version


14320 Giraffe untill 2008


From 2009 on
