Haven't been back to the forum for quite some time. Due to a lack of collecting this summer. However, I have returned to see if anything interesting is new for 2016. Any words on what's next for Safari Ltd?

No news yet. Though all i know is that with Carnegie Collection Extinct, we can expect a lot more Dinosaurs for the Wild Safari line.

Thats all i know. I have no clue about other animals

You're probably right, to fill in for the Carnegie void.

Yes, it is great to see you back here . Have ever Safari released the tube with fish figures that they discussed some time ago? scratch

Doubtful it will be a larger release--they already release 5-7 a year as it is. But maybe they'll fill some of the Carnegie holes. And not counting repaints or, worse, those silly eggs with dino baby toob figures in them.

The closest I've seen is the recent cave dwellers that had a couple of fish in it. It would be nice. But I'm pretty happy with the Replica Toy Fish series, so there's that!

I think Roger is referring to another coral fish set. There were some Facebook rumors about that some time ago. Very Happy I really do like the RTF series myself, he recently released new stuff. Very Happy

Awesome! I bought the bunch in December. I still have the adult gator gar to purchase.

Yes, you're right though I am not sure the Cave Dwellers tube is the tube of fish they were talking about in their FaceBook. I hope not.
Emma already own these Replica Toy Fish, that is a very interesting line, I think she is expecting something special from Safari this year. Very Happy

2015 was a huge letdown in regards to toobs for me. Sad But 2013 and 2014 were great years for toobs. 2011 and 2012 as well.

You're both right, the closest we have seen was this Cave Dwellers tube but I remember these rumors about a coral fish tube. Much probably, a tube to introduce in 2016. scratch
I like these Replica Toy fish, it was Emma who presented them to me, I hope to get some of them someday. bounce :)

Not to self-promote too hard, but I do have the entire line, as it exists, in my store right now.

Including the long out-of-stock 6" Blue channel catfish. Well, I have 1 left; even RTF doesn't have an of those left! Within the next couple days I should have everything in hand! And I can ship anywhere...!

I am especially pleased that there are 3 different 3" gars (longnose, alligator and juvenile alligator). I remember trying to get Safari to do a toob that included at least one gar, but nothing.

As for toob early pictures, I recall seeing pictures of the proposed cave and deep sea toob models at least two years before the toobs actually came out, so it may be a wait for new coral fish (seriously? no freshwater fish...).

Ahh no worries! I wondered why the entire line went out of stock not long after buying the entire line for myself. Wink Maybe you're the reason why. afro I do have 5 unreleased models. Those are on the Wiki as shown. Very nice of Simon to send those to me exclusively. He did mention he needed more capital before being able to produce more models. Perhaps that's why he hasn't produced much as of late.

I didn't really get into the swing of fresh water fish until December 2014. Always have been a tropical fish lover. I'd like to see more fresh water fish for a change though.

To guide a collector is not a problem, actually it is a bonus even it is for your own shop. Laughing
I think Replica Toy Fish needs more atention in general from collectors. They started a brave project and seeing your good words regarding the quality of the figures, it is a fantastic praise to the company. I am actually only interested in smaller ones 3". $1,50 each is a good price, I guess. The problem is postage overseas and the risk of paying customs. If you want, just pm me telling how much is all this operation. Wink Very Happy

You're right Roger. Their company is so underrated. Sad I've been waiting for outdoor shops like Cabela's to start getting these in their toy isles but I guess not yet. Neutral

Well, I will have the rest soon. One thing--the Canadian dollar has tumbled as of late, so the price of the newer ones is higher; but from what I can tell, the price in Euros or USD is still reasonable since that is what the CDN$ tumbled against!

And Emma, I had placed my order a couple of years ago--so yeah, even though it wasn't huge, I must have thinned out his stock a bit!

Were you able to get a brown trout from him as well? Simeon wasn't happy enough to actually put it up for sale-but I asked. Also, browns are invasive so why did he do that one?

Well, I will have the rest soon. One thing--the Canadian dollar has tumbled as of late, so the price of the newer ones is higher; but from what I can tell, the price in Euros or USD is still reasonable since that is what the CDN$ tumbled against!

And Emma, I had placed my order a couple of years ago--so yeah, even though it wasn't huge, I must have thinned out his stock a bit!

Were you able to get a brown trout from him as well? Simeon wasn't happy enough to actually put it up for sale-but I asked. Also, browns are invasive so why did he do that one?

Hmm I never knew the Browns were invasive. They were introduced to Colorado from Europe, and his business is in CO, so I wouldn't be surprised that he added that one. I personally liked the brown a lot, it's indeed a part of my collection.

They're pretty terrible around here, knocking out native ones like cutthroats and bull trout (the provincial fish). Along with brook trout, that also don't belong here.

But the figure is a really nice fish, not sure why Simeon doesn't feel it's up to his standards for resale (I couldn't get any of them or the lake sturgeon, for my store).

As I recall, he had a very limited quantity of them. He may not have had enough to sell for resale. But yeah, I was able to acquire the entire plethora of the newer line.

Yeah--it would have been a gar, but the 3.5" ones weren't around at the time! Once the new gars get here I just might do something with them!

I know, the prices in my store appear higher, but honest, the exchange tends to balance it. I haven't yet had a chance, but I will figure out postage for you (always brutal overseas, in either direction, but I can make adjustments!).

They're not high, in Euros it results in very affordable prices. Let me know when you have them available and please make everything to prevent the brutal postages. Very Happy

So hang on, sorry to distract from the original topic, but is the Replica Toy Fish site reliable? I would love to buy a set for my dad (and maybe myself) for his birthday, but I'm unfamiliar with the company. It's also located close-ish to where I live so that would be awesome. Thanks for any help.

Are you in CO too? Very Happy

The website is very reliable. I spent 60$+ in purchasing the entire line and it arrived promptly and safely. It's definitely worth it. He's a trust worthy family man. Very Happy

No but I live in a nearby state. So ok, how many species are in his line? I briefly looked at his website, and the species I can see are as follows:
walleye
Northern pike
brook trout
channel catfish
bluegill
yellow perch
pumpkinseed
crappie
muskellunge
tiger musky
small mouth bass
and large mouth bass
alligator gar
juvenile "
longnose gar
striper
and a shovel nose sturgeon

are those all? I saw that all of them come in "tackle boxes" or such as 3" fish, and then there's the shovel nose sturgeon at 6". Sorry, but at this relatively cheap pricing I would love to have all his species he has available. Thanks again Emma!

Unfortunately he is out of stock on most of his species, and some of them haven't even been released. I'm sure you could email him for details.

That's the entire line, with the exception of the adult alligator gar which I have yet to acquire.

Of course, not for nothing, I have a store (as mentioned) that has the entire full run, including 1 of the 6" channel catfish.

The only ones I don't have are the new Guadalupe Bass and the 2 3" alligator gars, but those should be here in a few days.

Keep in mind, it's all Canadian $$, and our dollar is terrible right now.

Ok, thanks Emma! So many great species there, and even a rainbow trout which is my dad's favorite. So just one last question, then I will go pester the owner I guess. Wink Are you sure that all of those figures still in production? Many of them aren't on the site, so I don't know if that's what you meant by they were out of stock or if they were retired for sure. Thanks again, I'm giddy to have the opportunity to get some freshwater fish. bounce

And thanks, I will keep your store in mind, however I'd prefer to buy directly from the company since the shipping etc. would be cheaper. However, if he doesn't have many of them in stock I will definitely look at your store. And one last question for you, you have the entire line (for the most part) in your store? Do you sell them as single figures as well, or only in sets? Thanks again to you too. Very Happy

Sorry fauna figures, I should have looked at your website first. Embarassed So yes you sell them individually. And I see all the ones on his site, but what about the others listed in TAI? Thanks again, and sorry to bother you all...

I am actually not sure if those figures are retired or not. scratch The ones that aren't on the site he told me had in limited quantities. And as sbell noted, Simeon isn't entirely satisfied with some of those figures. Neutral I am guessing that some of those figures might potentially be out of stock because he hasn't produced more. Some might be 'retired' though. I would link him the ToyAnimalWiki RTF section and ask if he's going to produce more of what's listed. Wink I'm just speculating. Best of luck! Very Happy

As far as I know, those were never released at any time--perhaps he had a couple of samples to send to Emma? Because I have been in touch with Simeon since he started, and I know he had a huge range coming, but has had difficulty getting it in place.

So I only have the ones from his site, minus the 3" lake sturgeon, which he may not have enough of to sell beyond himself.

Only 5 of them were samples I believe. The rest he did indeed release, however in limited numbers. I wish I still had his emails, I'd share them here.

If a Safari Ltd manager reads this topic about new Safari figures to be released, I am sure he will buy the 3 inches molds from Replica Toy Fish and make a Safari river & Lake Toob. Laughing

Then the way you can tell the difference between them is the paint jobs. We all know which one's going to be sloppy. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Then the way you can tell the difference between them is the paint jobs. We all know which one's going to be sloppy. Rolling Eyes Laughing

I remember Simeon being concerned that Safari would get wind of his line and make their own. Best case scenario, they buy the molds and reissue.

Worst case, they pull a Schleich and make the line 'disappear' like Noah's Pals.

Yikes, I'd hate for a good line like his to be 'stolen/copied' or to disappear. I think he's in the clear for the most part. monkey

Had a look at these old photos from 2012. The two gars at the top of the first picture and some of the trout in the second have never been released. Any details on these? Very Happy
I see he hasn't released the Colorado River Trout, Gold Trout, Chinook, or the two top Gars. Pity, I really would like to have those figures. At least I was lucky enough to get some unreleased catfish and a secondary Muskie from him. Rolling Eyes
I'm considering bugging him about these, but I might want to hold off for a bit. Very Happy

He had major issues with his production in China. At one point, there should have been a tacklebox for all 50 states, plus a Canada box (my suggestion, since really, the fish already existed). This was on top of some other boxes like an all-gar box, all esocid box, all trout & salmon box, etc.

To say nothing of the 6" models like paddlefish, bowfin and others that were supposed to show up.

It was a pretty huge increase in many ways, especially for a year or so later after he started. I know that he was going to scale back/break up the releases a little more, but again, the production issues were the biggest problem. In particular, paint jobs and costs (I spoke to him on the phone about that, so I have a pretty good idea about how much each run cost the first time, versus the second time!).

Hello! I'd love to buy some of your fish. Can you provide the link to your store? Thanks!

I think Roger is referring to another coral fish set. There were some Facebook rumors about that some time ago. Very Happy I really do like the RTF series myself, he recently released new stuff. Very Happy

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

You're both right, the closest we have seen was this Cave Dwellers tube but I remember these rumors about a coral fish tube. Much probably, a tube to introduce in 2016. scratch
I like these Replica Toy fish, it was Emma who presented them to me, I hope to get some of them someday. bounce :)

Not to self-promote too hard, but I do have the entire line, as it exists, in my store right now.

Including the long out-of-stock 6" Blue channel catfish. Well, I have 1 left; even RTF doesn't have an of those left! Within the next couple days I should have everything in hand! And I can ship anywhere...!

I am especially pleased that there are 3 different 3" gars (longnose, alligator and juvenile alligator). I remember trying to get Safari to do a toob that included at least one gar, but nothing.

As for toob early pictures, I recall seeing pictures of the proposed cave and deep sea toob models at least two years before the toobs actually came out, so it may be a wait for new coral fish (seriously? no freshwater fish...).

Worst case, they pull a Schleich and make the line 'disappear' like Noah's Pals.

Laughing Noah's Pals was a very well idealised line of pair of animals, all in scale, very collectible once they were not many and with the old concept of Noah's Ark assigned. Also, they represented a vaste group of animals, mixing unusual with the most common and they had an evident "cute factor". They could really represent some competition to Schleich that was trying to expand their business in North American market. These Replica Toy Fish, are very interesting but represent a very small niche in terms of market. They're not competition to Safari or Wild Republic. Though, it doesn't prevent RTF from grabbing the interest of these companies. Wild Republic is more and more using non K&M molds to their tubes and using moulds from other manufacturers.
I'd love to see RTF expanding their range but, it won't surprise me seeing in future their molds being used by Wild Republic. :)

Hello! No problem, my friend! Unfortunately I was too late for the blue catfish :-(
I want the Striped Bass and the Guadalupe bass. Is there any other species arriving, such as the carp?

I have never seen others, such as the carp, available; I am thinking RTF only had a few to see how they were, and then he didn't get the rest of the lot.

If you mean the 6" blue channel catfish, I do still have one. I have lots of the smaller 3" channel cats. The other catfish, I've never seen available to sell either!

Hi! If you still got the blue catfish I want it, and the Striped Bass and the Guadalupe bass.
Would mind if I send you the ones I have for you to check?

Thanks John for checking and sharing that information with us. With the end of the Carnegi line, those will surely be to their Wild Safari collection. I hope they make some non dinosaurs once postosuchus and inostrancevia are among their best. Very Happy
