One last chance for wild canids this year... bounce Oh well, I'm happy with the thylacine at the very least, but there are several great models this year so far. Very Happy Does anyone know if there will be any new farm animals or just horses this year?

I really think CollectA needs to update some of their older models like the initial dogs and wolves, they really aren't up to par with the current models. Not really into the open mouth Thylacines but it is nicer than Mojo's.

Going off what's been announced for i'll only be getting the Tahr but the Eland calf will be on my wish-list. Hoping there might be something else I like in the final batch.

Again not that I don't like gray wolves and red foxes, but there is more out there. And we have been lucky with some things like fennec foxes and jackals, but there are bat eared foxes, dholes, dingos, arctic wolves, raccoon dogs, etc. etc. that could be done and CollectA would do such a lovely job. Very Happy
Now I'm done with my rant.... Wink

I totally agree :)
Ha, I'm getting a following. Laughing Really though, most gray wolf species represented would be northern latitude varieties such as North American/Rocky Mountain or Russian (due to coloration and general body conformation), when there are other species too, like eastern gray wolves (much slighter in build), Mexican gray wolves, red wolves (I wait the day AAA will be joined by some good red wolves), and other canid species. I would say that PV did a good job, but those are smaller slightly less detailed figures than if CollectA took on the task. Plus they have covered so many species of antelope and wild sheep/goats why not do canids too?

And I totally agree with you. There are several figures that don't fit in with their range of style anymore, that could be modernized to their current style or replaced by something else altogether. The wolves or older dogs are great examples.

Although I agree, I'm still going to be the dissenter here.

For every mongoose, civet, procyonid or hyena, there are likely 4-6 bears, dogs or cats.

It would be nice to see the other fissiped carnivoran groups represented a little better--as it is, there are 2, the red panda and the striped hyena. Those two figures demonstrate the CollectA could do a great job with them (I mean, come on--the extinct machairodonts have 2 CollectA figures!)

I believe there's a zebra coming, don't know which species and much probably a primate. monkey An antelope adult is also confirmed.
About wild dogs, besides the grey wolves and the red fox, CollectA already made a fennec fox, a maned wolf, a blakc-backed jackal. Of course I'd also loved to see more canids but these 5 species seems quite fair.
On the other hand, since they decided to diversify their range, they never made a rhinoceros. They still keep the old and not very good white rhino.

Of course you are right, althought they also made an excellent otter Very Happy

A Sunda stink badger (mydaus javanensis) would be great too!

Antelope: Why not a Saiga or a Nilgai?

five Canidsis a very honorable ratio but, since it is ColelctA, there is still a place for a Dhole, a Bush dog or an Abyssinian wolf drunken

I absolutely don't like the red panda, I think this one could be replaced by a bintourong or something like that. The otter is very old-style too, so I would prefer to see a giant otter.

I forgot the otter of course--but I still maintain that we need one of the good companies to do some civets, and a mongoose or two that are NOT meerkats (we get it...they were in the Lion King. That was a generation ago...). To say nothing of say, a coati or less common mustelid.

Play Visions shouldn't still be the only company to do things like that.

I agree for the Red panda but I can't find a better otter than the collectA one except some japanese models.

CollectA could be the PV children, it is already the Starlux grand son Laughing It would be fine if they make new small carnivorans, why not some incredible tubes?

I have tried suggesting that--think of the small animals that could be done! Also, the tube style is awesome.

I see what you mean Sbell, I would like more small carnivores as well as you suggest, I just advocate for canids since they are my favorites. And if you think about it there is an endless list of species that should be made, again I just hope for canids since I like them most. And as Kiki said, it is collectA, there seems to be some trends of fleshing out species from a family or group of animals than just one popular representation of them, there is room for a few more canids.

And since we are on the topic... a wolverine would be neat as well. I also think there should be some more wild cattle species also. So far there have been copious amounts of American and African bison, a handful of wisents and yaks, and a few others like a musk ox and a gaur and an Asian water buffalo as well. Again there are a few other species that could be done, or at least more musk oxen and wisents etc. would be welcome.

So we look forward to a possible primate, zebra, and new antelope... they should make a rhino since there isn't a good one by them. A musk ox would be a dream. drunken
