PostSubject: New Safari 2013 Cheetah   Fri Sep 27, 2013 9:11 pm

I was in my local stores yesterday (AC Moore's) and they have the new 2013 models on their shelves. I saw the large Wildlife Wonders cheetah and was a little disappointed. I have always thought Safari does not paint as detailed as some of the other brands. However, I still like their new Wildebeests and Elk. Very impressive. But the cheetah was a very light yellow and the spots were completely in a row, vs. being painted in a non-organized way. That was at least my thought. Anyone else see the cheetah yet?

I have been to few local Michael's stores and didn't see the new Wildlife Wonders cheetah, but some items were marked clearance and I haven't been back yet to see what new items they have. Even though I'm only a sealife collector, I did notice when Safari announced the 2013 releases that the cheetah was very light in color and the spots were perfectly aligned rather than random. I was thinking maybe it was just how the picture was taken, but now that you saw it at AC Moore's, I thought maybe it was a bad shipment that they got. If you watch this YouTube video, it looks like that's how it's supposed to be painted:

I also agree with Orca girl, I wasn't impressed at all with catalogue picture. It seemed very artifitial and our expectations about Wildlife Wonders are always high. :) I think someone has posted it already but I cannot find. Sad

Yes the regular ostrich...I only knew that was being discontinued because it was on a shelf that read "Safari Items being Discontinued: $2" I forget what else was on that particular shelf but there was not much. I ended up getting two Ostriches. If you want one and cannot find one let me know. I have no idea if there is a list of Safari items being discontinued. I wonder if that means a new ostrich is coming out????

Orcagirl, thank you for your informative video, now I realize how they do the painting in the production line.
