i know we don't have topics like these often but my vote is the peacock. clearly its one of the worst peacock models from the major brands. it looks absolutely horrible next to the papo, schleich, and collecta peacocks. i'm not sure why its not retired. the bird itself is way too small for it's feathers ( which are very poorly painted) i will purchase almost all safari ltd wildlife but this one i just had to pass from.  Evil or Very Mad Sad No affraid

The worst one for me is any one I want that I for some reason miss out on! Very Happy 
I'm not sure what the worst really is,but I suppose all lines have at least one miss somewhere.

Laughing Laughing Very unusual topic Wink

I sort of like that peacock.
Actually I could not really think of a Safari model that is "worst".
Perhaps it irritates me that they have made so many black models without any deatil in the paintwork lately...BUT .....

Then, today I got a very strange thing, - at first I thought : I did not order a HAT  Shocked

Well, actually there must be quite a bit of thought put into the design.

I guess what bothers me is the miss-match of scaling with Safari LTD. At least the other brands make the animals somewhat compatible with each other.

From normal sized figures I think the worst is the old American black bear here pictured by Susanne. This one is addicted in carrots! Laughing

I actually like this bear, Rogerio. To me it's a safari ltd classic.  Very Happy

Lance, you're right! It is a Safari classic and to those that know Safari design of older figures, it is clearly recognizable as a Safari. I don't intend to say that I don't like it or that it is not a nice collectible. Probably the less realistic of all I can remember among normal sized figures. Very Happy

In my opinion, it's the new 2014 dolphin.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Safari Ltd. says it's an "updated" version of the bottlenose dolphin, but I think it's a downgrade if anything  No The tail is too wide and it's too skinny to be any species of dolphin. I think they should have just released a new species.

I've never minded the subtle "tripod" pose where the tip of the tail touches down to aid balance as the more recent Carnegie Collection bipedal meat eaters do since they are still clearly horizontal,just posed as if rearing and roaring out.But this T. rex does indeed have a full-on old style tail dragging pose,so I can see what you mean here...Shocked The original Wild Safari Suchomimus has the pose and overall body proportion problems you mention too.But happily,newer and much better models have since turned up.I love both the 2011 Wild Safari Tyrannosaurus and the 2014 Carnegie one too.And incidently,I'm a fan of the 2014 Wild Safari Suchomimus too. Very Happy

For me, the worst Safari model I've seen is, hands down, the pronghorn antelope. I usually prefer Safari models, but that was the pits. Bad sculpting, bad paint job, dull colours that look nothing like the standard stock photos, and it's HUGE. The thing was the same size as a Safari woolly mammoth! Just the pits, and I'm still stuck looking for a decent pronghorn toy!

The safari prehistoric mammals, because they are too small. And most of the horses, because of bad paintjob and they look like statues.

I like the Schnauzer, but the only thing I don't like is that the eyes are gray and not painted at all!

The Chimera is the worst Safari ltd model of all. Instead of a legendary creature, the Safari ltd Chimera looks like an accumulation of many figures that were broken and put back together by a drunken teenager or a dumb 2-year-old kid. Bleah.
