Wow, some of those are fantastic. I just wish the coyote and puma was a regular. The moose, antelope, boar, and bears are all exciting. Are these all their animal range figures for the year? Thanks for sharing! cheers Applause

Maybe, I don't know. Swedish dealer posted pics on FB, I'm interested only in living mammals - wildlife and farm, and that's all of them...
I really like the boar, bear and moose. Coyote is veeery nice but why issued as a WW I don't know. Aardvark nice but it seems identical as the old one, so I'll pass it Very Happy

I really like the angus, the goats, the black bul, the aardvark and the jaguars. I really hope for some bird this year and a good paintjob. Smile

Wow Shocked I never expected them to release a nurse shark. Are there more releases than what's shown here? Didn't they retire the baby dinos in an egg a few years ago scratch Suspect

Hm... More for me here than last year, but then again not much. I'm surprised there aren't more ocean life and horses. However, some interesting figures. Only one I have a problem with is the moose calf's neck looks to be too short. Rolling Eyes Otherwise, for me its an improvement over last year.

Love all the new dinosaurs! It would seem I made a lucky guess about a month ago when I called Yutyrannus as one of the Wild Safari line. Very Happy

Good to see all the new figures. I always like additions to the WS Wildlife line. A bit disappointed with the puma, though, as it looks like a retooled or repainted black jaguar/leopard

It's hard to believe that these are all of Safari Ltd.'s 2015 releases, I expected at least one new release in each line (with the exception of the Monterey Bay Collection). Only the nurse shark and tiger shark appeal to me; looks like I'll have to wait until CollectA announces their 2015 items to see if any cetaceans are released, they never seem to disappoint. I was really hoping for a porpoise or a boto.

I like jaguar, Thompson gazelle, wild boar, family moose, black bull and maybe Grizzly . Good news !!

I think cougar has a strange way. Looks like a lioness overweight. Mad

Yes, it's the existing one from Monterey Bay; however the dorsal fin does look different scratch Probably from the orca being photographed at an angle. I also wanted to point out that the frog is the same one from the Life Cycle of a Frog set:

This is a lot to take in, even if most species are not new. The bear looks very promising- their polar bear and black bear are the best, and I had hoped a similarly sculpted brown bear might emerge. The frog, aardvark, and insects are very familiar... though I imagine the alternative would be none at all? The cattle look excellent like the others (though I don't have any). The mini orangutan, and especially octopus, look like must-haves. Promising dinosaurs, jaguar, interesting I.C. fish choices, and the desert dragon may be their most monstrous figure to date. The toobs... well...

Great pictures.
Colours of the bear and cub look nice.
Cant wait to see them next year.

Also excited about the angus bull, black bull and moose bull.

Mh… so bad for me.
We have a total of 65 new releases, 52 if we excluded Good Luck Minis and Toobs… so, still less than previous year. But the real trouble is that almost 15 figures are repaint or recycled figures! We actuay have only 35-37 REAL new figures.
In all honesty I don't like this way takan by Safari…
The good thing is that the new dinosaurs looks really good, I especially like the Yutyrannus. Not other commenta for the rest.

I agree ! A very bad habit of several brands !!! It is so darned irritating, when a rare and valuable gem suddenly become something you can get by the hundreds Suspect
If they had made a new one in another pose, it would have been fantastic What a Face

The toobs are very disappointing. Not much for me to collect from Safari this upcoming year.

I have to say, I didn't know about the Wildlife Wonders "Puma" - No, Safari. No No No No No. As Abe Lincoln said, "If you call a dog's tail a leg, how many legs does a dog have? A dog has 4 legs; calling the tail a leg does not make it a leg." Safari, pay attention. Painting a jaguar to look like a Puma and calling it a Puma does NOT make it a Puma. It is still a Jaguar. Sad.

But the Wildlife Wonders Coyote is a bright spot. Safari tends to excel at making wild dogs - even though their Fennec Fox more accurately depicts a Blanford's Fox, it does so very well (again, calling it a Fennec doesn't make it so). It's nice to see Coyotes getting some attention, especially in the Wildlife Wonders. It gives me hope that we may someday see some lesser kittehs in the line, too.

The new Wild Safari Wildlife Jaguar and Black Jaguar.... Applause Applause Applause . Beautiful. I'm seriously geeking out over how good they look.

The Aardvark reissue was inevitable, sorry Lance. I had heard they got a lot of requests to re-release it. People didn't want a new figure; they were actually requesting the retired one. Safari is aware of secondary market values of some of their figures; whether they knew the Aardvark was valuable or not, I don't know, but I do know that if they see enough interest in a retired figure, and the mold is still in good condition, they are going to re-release that figure. That's just good business.

To that end, though, someone needs to slap them. Slap someone. The Mudpuppy. For the love of all things holy, why?!? Glow in the dark?!?! C'mon, Man!

Finally Safari seems to have realized that their current Grizzly Bear sucks. Thankfully, they are remedying that with what appears to be an excellent new WS NAW figure. Nice to see the intro of a female Moose and calf. The Male appears to be an improvement, as well.

Sadly, the "frog" is... well, sad. I've always found it ridiculous that the Life Cycle figures weren't available outside those sets; but the Frog? Not their strongest figure. BUT - Safari does have a tendency to retire/resculpt poorly executed figures within their Wild Safari line.... maybe that will happen quickly for this poor chap as well.

Nice to see Hidden Kingdom get mentioned - even if those are just singles from the Life Cycles. Hidden Kingdom just kind of languishes with no real attention year to year; it's about time Safari starts getting buggy again.

The Nurse Shark. Finally revealed. This was the sea creature I had previously hinted as being commonly kept in public aquaria but not having been made by any major company other than one Japanese company (Neko Works had a Nurse Shark). The Tiger Shark was the species hinted at as being uncommon in public aquaria, but having numerous figures. The catalog picture of the Nurse Shark doesn't look quite as nice as the other picture I was of it a while ago, but it still looks pretty fantastic.

I'm actually a little bummed about there not being any new animal TOOBs.

As per usual, the Wild Safari Dinos look pretty awesome. It's also good to see some worthwhile Dragons - this year's were dreadful, and at least in my store, they haven't sold very well at all. That Cave Dragon and the Desert Dragon look spectacular!

Incredible Creatures have an aquatic bent this year. Although I'm pleased to see that, I think it's really strange to see two species of fish; neither particularly colorful. I would have thought that Safari would get ahead of the game by releasing something like a Palette Surgeon ahead of Disney's much anticipated "Finding Dory," which is set to release next year. But they dropped the ball on that.

All in all, a petty solid lineup coming in 2015. If nothing else, the Wild Safari Jaguars, Grizzly Bear, Nurse & Tiger Sharks, the Cave and Desert Dragons, all the Dinos, and the Wildlife Wonders Coyote all look like winners to me.

The Toobs are indeed very disappointing.
