Because STS is a human forum made by, with, for human beings... We are not perfect Laughing
Why the Sparrow and not the Polar bear? The Polar bear could be in three categories: Woodland, Wildlife and Sealife. I even think the best category for an Ursus maritimus is the Sealife. So why it falls in the woodland? Just because for four years now I put the polar bears on the North-American map and nobody told me it was a bad idea. Laughing
Why the sparrow is in the two categories? Eurasian sparrow are not Sealife creatures Wink . Where is the place for a Cape penguin? sealife? African Wildlife? Good questions with many answers. maybe we should make a Poll to know where STS decide to classified those animals?
Now why the Kitan sparrow is in the two poll? Many members add it on their pre-screening lists.

The Kiwi is awesome. I don't know what I'll vote for yet, though. I can't decide.

I'm a little surprised none of the Schleich models made it on. Too bad. I thought that the Hyena, the Crocodile, and the Alligator were particularly impressive. Not as sexy as a Babirusa, for sure, but still, it's arguable that the CollectA Babirusa was not as strong a sculpt as any of those three.

Sigh... I feel weird defending Schleich. It's like standing up for the kid at school who's being unfairly harassed even though he irritates the heck out of you too.

lol! I think this forum was excesively Schleich oriented in its early years, now it is turning the oposite. Soon or later an average point will be achieved. I also think that there are some Schleich that could easily enter this category this year and I agree the babirusa is not CollectA's best figure. Though, it is a surprising species choice and the figure is generally competently sculpted. I believe that next year's pangolin will enter the top 10 for Wildlife. Cheetah and flamingo seeem promising too. Very Happy

The Schleich Tiger and croc had the 13th and 14th rank, with respectively 3 and 4 votes less than the number 10 (Kaiyodo shoebill). They were not so far Wink

Yes, what about the 2016 Schleich oryx for next year? Laughing and I agree, I think the new schleich cheetah and pangolin will be in the top 10 next year as well. Smile

Surely also a strong candidat despite apparently it is just remastered from the older oryx. A great antelope year, hirola eland calf and nilgai from CollectA and impala from Papo. We can't forget also the grevy's zebra, maybe strongest candidat, shoebil, Papo rearing tiger, etc. We're having extraordinary wild life releases, mainly thanks to CollectA and they will keep dominating these polls. Though, it is nice to see that the absolute winners of previous years to all categories were Mojo gaur and Papo snow leopard. Let's see what the new year results bring. bounce

I don't think the gemsbok is a remastered one. The older one was looking to the left and was more side looking that this one.

About the 2016 Wildlife, I agree there will be more competitors and not only from Africa, the Asian and Australian fauna have some interesting representatives. Very Happy

Interesting results, it is quite fair to see the superb kiwi on top3. I think also that chiru is a fair winner. On previous two years, the winner of this category won the final award, let's see what happens this year. bounce bounce

Well deserved! Rare and wonderful model! I didn´t know much about Chiru before this model realisation so... for me... award for education goes to this model also :)

I think the paint app helped this wonderful figure win this category. CollectA did a nice job this time. Applause

This is a wonderful figure, I just didn't voted for it because it's saddly to big for a 1:20/1:22 scale collector. Sad
