...what would they be? Assume there is some all-knowing animal model genie that knows everything and will give you the answers.

Make your list here! bounce

I'd like to know why they're not improving their paint job even though their models are quite nice. I think they'd sell so much more if that issue was gone. So,
1. When will you get to the same level with Collecta, SafariLtd? Very Happy

When will you make more Sauropods for your Wild Safari Dinos line?

Are you going to redo your Triceratops in the same style as your newer ceratopsians?

Can you make some really obscure Animals for your Wild Safari Wildlife line?

Will there be more birds in the Wings of the World Collection?

Can you make more Small species for your Wild Safari Dinos Collection?

1. Do the folks running the Wild Safari line and the folks running the Carnegie line coordinate with each other?
2. Are the Carnegie folks a little dismayed and jealous that the Wild Safari dinosaurs are as fantastic as they are in 2015 especially, but also for the last several years? (Carnegie models are great too; don't get me wrong.)
3. Are folks at your company ridiculously pleased with themselves regarding how fabulous the Sauropelta, Yutyrannus, and Nasutoceratops are?
4. Were you surprised that the Dinosaur collecting community did not respond well to the genuinely awesome 2014 Carnegie Tyrannosaurus? (That T. rex is fantastic. I'm looking at it right now. One of my most favorite dinosaur models, period.)
5. Do you even pay attention to collectors? (I don't think you do. I think it's possible you pay less attention than companies like Schleich, Papo, and CollectA. Although, you did bring the Aardvark back. Kudos to you on that one.)

1 - Do you spent all your black paint surplus now ? Laughing

3 - Will you give more and more work to the guy who made the 2015 sauropelta ? king
4 - Will you stop soon to please Scott with an Aardvark remake and start making a new Aardvark ? Laughing
5 - Since STS means Safari Team's Supporters, could you answer to all our questions here ? Wink

1) Who sculpted the Vanishing Wild line,are they someone who still does sculpting for your company?
2) Will you be releasing families to some of your other figures,such as the Elk and Pronghorn?
3)Some of your items have excellent paint work,while others do not. Would it be possible for you to update the paintwork on some of the lacking figures?
4) Will there be more Wings of the World released?
5) Would it be possible to make uncommon animal models for animals outside of North America?

1. Have you well thought-out in a stronger commercial presence in Europe?

2. Will you pay more atention to painting in your future collection of horses once it was the only minus of previous collections and horse collectors are the most exigent in this regard?

3. Have you bought the mould of Colorata chinstrap penguin or has it a different origin?

4. Have you ever considered to create a collection of lifesized animal figures distinct from what is today the Incredible Creatures collection?

5. As the most communicative company, is there any plausible explanation to your staff to be so distant from what is the most plural and impartial forum? Laughing

I was ready to ask why do you use a croc in your logo but I gave up of asking it. :allien: Wink


If anyone reads it, I want again to thank Safari's support in Toy Animal Wiki, work is still not finished but the collectability of a company depends how well we know what is to be collected. Contrarily to what most companies think, it has a remarkable influence in current range sales. Very Happy

Safari DOES INDEED pay attention to collectors! Particularly if a model is requested a lot. For instance, we have the opossum, peccary, and coyote because fans really rallied and asked for them many times. If you haven't done so yet, scot(t)  I urge you to join the Safari Facebook page group. Message them and let them know what you're genuinely interested in seeing produced. They usually respond directly to messages sent them.
Also, I am confused! scratch Is there a big difference in the paint schemes on models released overseas? It has been brought up the issue of the quality of paint on Safari models lately, and I have always found Safari models to be particularly well sculpted and well painted. In particular, the new Wildlife Wonders coyote is FANTASTIC! So I'm wondering if there's an issue with painted models overseas in Europe or other nations? Hm. Perhaps Safari can answer this. confused
I have already asked my questions directly to them.
1.) Would Safari consider producing a free standing hypsilophodon foxii?
2.) Would Safari considee producing a life-sized field vole for their Wildlife Wonders small animals collection?
3.) Would Safari consider publishing a "print-on-demand" hardcover book detailing the history of their company and a detailed figure photo index?
4.) How about making a "Night Creatures" toob with common night animals found in big cities such as a red fox, coyote, skunk, brown bat, flying squirrel, great horned owl, alley cat, raccoon, and opossum?
5.) How about a Compsognathus?

I would ask one out of five questions to Safari.

What about a new Safari line of replicas called "Carnegie Prehistoric Animal Collection", which includes a Smilodon, a Woolly Rhinoceros, an American Mastodon, a Giant Ground Sloth, a Doedicurus...?

Their painting use to be better. I have 10 year old dolphin and whale toob animals. Even 10 years later, they're still better than today's paints.

Yes !!! The toobs used to be much better painted Shocked

I have a couple of the old "Cat"-tube models, and a newer tube .
The difference is not enormous, but it makes a world of difference if the eyes are not sitting on the chin etc... geek Laughing

In case anyone's wondered. Doug Watson is responsible for the Wildlife Wonders lines Big Cat figurines. He may have sculpted the whole line but don't quote me on that, i might ask him if its true.

Yes, I have been mainly a reader of the forum for a while now. I like to get the feed back even if it requires a very thick skin from time to time.

1- Why don't you make more research when you do dragons instead of inventing them? There are many kinds of dragons in mythologies around the world you could make: Tarasque, Vouivre, Naga...

2- Why do you represent almost just greek mythological creatures in your mythology sets? There are many interesting mythological creatures all around the world you could make: Tlanusi ( Cherokee), Bunyip (Australia), Jasconius (biblical), Feng-huang (China)...

3- Why didn't you represent any Bryde's Whale yet?

4- Why didn't you represent any Baiji Dolphin yet?

5- Why didn't you make any tube about animals that disappeared because of mankind, yet?
