So, here is a new model of the American tiger: Mr. Jaguar itself.

Despite it is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the biggest in the Western Hemisphere, this animal is the less produced of the big cats. Even the clouded (Snow) leopard have more models... Maybe because it is too closed to the leopard, it was probably the right answer for vintage brands.

Nevertheless Safari Ltd is the champion brand for jaguar with at least 5 big models, without counting the toob size's ones. I guess we should expect this from an american company.

So what about the 2015 newcomer? Far from Papo miss, this one is on the accurate side of the world, bulky body, short tail, short and stocky limbs... and the pose exquisitely suggest how powerful is this animal drunken

A few pics? Very Happy

Beautiful jaguar. I love the walking pose and I think proportions are good enough. I still have slight preference for Schleich one, maybe it's kind of sentiment for this one or so? Laughing

Fantastic photos too, what a great colour of background to show majesty of that beautiful royal wild cat king Very Happy cheers

Yes, I need to say that : Kiki, you have a wonderful sence of colors.
Every time, You choose the perfect color of background for every model.
I don`t know , do you do it on purpose, or You just feel it...but I see that:
When a model has some color like accent, You use similar color for bachground...and like this, the model stands out more .. and also
all colors are more in harmony :)
Here for example, the color of the spots it`s similar with the color of the background...
I see that very often in your great photos Applause

I need this one, badly bounce bounce
I thought it would be way bigger than the Schleich one, but he is just perfect!
Thank you so much for the walkaround Kiki flower

So, my photos are far from the Kiki`s great photos..but I would like to show 3.
Comparison with the old model of Safari Jaguar :

The posture is quite similar...of course, the new one is far more better with anatomy, proportions, texture and paint job.. :)

Christophe, thanks again for another fantastic walk around and Kosta for additional and useful comparison pictures! Very Happy
I need always to prevent collecting too many figures of the same species and my jaguar is the Schleich one. I confess I like very much that last from Safari but maybe it is not such a big improvement over the Schleich figure and that is the only reason why I am not considering to get this wonderful figure.
About your presentation, I think you mean leopard and not clouded leopard. Jaguars are much more usual in toy shape than clouded leopards, though, less common than leopards. I think there are two main reasons why it happens. First is that jaguar painting is more complex and represents a bigger effort in terms of manufacturing, then, leopards are more popular animals once they are common in African fauna that is by far the more popular fauna of the world. Very Happy

Thank you, Kiki and Kosta! cheers
I think Roger lose the opportunity to get such wonderful jaguar. Schleich's one is very nice and close to original anatomy but there is something wrong in this one (ok, there is no an ideal among figurines), since Safari is enough dinamic and well painted (especialy for Safari).
So, Safari's jaguar is too orange, but... I LIKE HIM SO MUCH. One way — my wishlist. I hope he will be available in Russia.

@ Anna and Rogério: The Schleich jaguar is a very nice thing but IMHO the Safari Ltd one is far superior. The body and head proportions, the pose are really serious on this one, it is obvious when you have the two models in hand. I’m sorry I didn’t make enough comparison pics to show this. I will try to do something. Sleep

@ Anna and Kosta: Such compliments on the background are dangerous things indeed. it means I need to be up to it. Nevertheless, thank you Very Happy

@Karin: Go for it bounce

@ Kosta: Thank you for the comparison pics. Could we hope you will repaint it one day Wink

@ Florian: Merci beaucoup cheers

@ Roger: About the leopard thing, I fumbled, I was talking about the Snow leopard. Laughing

@ Anasta: I hope you will have one soon Very Happy

I agree with Kiki, the Shleich jaguar is nice, but the Safari jaguar is looking more realistic.
My opinion is, the Safari one, has better anatomy, better details.. texture and very nice posture.
And yes, I`ll repaint him for shure. The model has a lot of potencial, but the paint job dasn`t help so much for us, to see this easily..
Kiki, don`t worry Laughing , your backgrounds are everytime wonderful..you are up to it, without pushing yourself . I`m a fan of your photos and taste of colors Wink

Wonderful Walkaround Christophe! Really lovely.

I'm a very big fan of this new Safari Jaguar -- I have it myself. However, as good as I think it is, I'm also (like Anna and some others) inclined to favor the old Schleich. It's a beautiful figure.

It is great to read all your comments and your eagerness of helping me to take the best decision. Interesting to see important opinions favorable towards the Safari figure. It is quite relevant because Schleich jaguar is a good figure too. It is also great when we see that not all opinions have the same direction and that's one of the reasons why foruns are so important. I love to read your comments and I'll consider to get the Safari jaguar although it is surely not a priority.
Christophe, so it was a snow leopard, these two wonderful cats are often mixed although we all know which one is each. Very Happy
Oh, also looking forward to see how this jaguar will look like after these famous repaints from Kosta! bounce

Is there a comparison between this one and the Papo one anywhere? Would be interested to see since if I was to get one these were the two I was considering.

Unfortunately Ican't find my papo jaguar. Nevertheless, the Papo jaguar is a beautiful big cat but it is not a jaguar, the Safari Ltd is a jaguar. Wink

That's right! Papo should revise the design and make it right.

Beautiful jaguar. I love the walking pose and I think proportions are good enough. I still have slight preference for Schleich one, maybe it's kind of sentiment for this one or so? Laughing

Fantastic photos too, what a great colour of background to show majesty of that beautiful royal wild cat king   Very Happy cheers

I also like the Schleich Jaguar better. To myself, the Schleich one has a better body and head that look more Jaguar.

Two collectors, three opinions Laughing

I think the Safari Ltd looks more like a Jungle jaguar and Schleich like a Zoo jaguar.

I think the painting enhance the Schleich model and lower the Safari Ltd.

Look at it when it is very well painted [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

Yes, the stock Schleich Jaguar is painted a bit better than the stock Safari one. That repainted one you showed helps alot. Both companies are not to bad for a Jaguar. I think the limbs on the Safari one a a slight bit to long, but its a good one overall.

Hello all,

This thread is from 2015, but I just read it now.

First of all, great paint job on the Safari ltd. jaguar! I love to see people try to capture the essence of this great cat.

I personally feel that the Schleich jaguar ( second one they have put out and the one you displayed ) is the best "structured" jaguar on the market and the paint job is not bad. I feel the Safari ltd. jaguar is too narrow with slightly longer legs than I would like to see. It doesn't really capture the power and bulky size of the jaguar that makes it the thirds largest feline in the world.

However, as I have stated before, there are several subspecies of jaguar and not all subspecies show the huge size and bulk that they are famous for. For instance, jaguars from Mexico or Central America is much smaller than jaguars from the Pantanal of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. Central American jaguars are average about 120-140 lbs (male) compared to an average weight of 220 lbs for a Brazilian male from the Pantanal or the Venezuelan Llanos. That is double the weight! In the latter areas they even get up to 325 lbs or more. Those are immense cats that would truly have the huge heads, short powerful limbs, big barrel shaped bodies and short tails. They inhabit more of the open area of South America where a larger race of jaguars have developed due to the open space and access to more and larger prey. The jaguars of the dense jungles need a smaller body in order to be more arboreal and live in a more confined habitat (thick jungle).

So, Christophe you are actually correct. The Safari ltd jaguar depicts more the "jungle jaguar" where jaguars are smaller, where as the Schleich jaguar depicts more the characteristics of the larger races of jaguars.

Either way my friend, good job with your repainted jaguar!
