At a first glance this model looks like a lump of rough, grey plastic, but looking closer, it is WONDERFUL cheers

From Wikipedia : "The North American porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum), also known as the Canadian porcupine or common porcupine, is a large rodent in the New World porcupine family. The beaver is the only rodent in North America that is larger than the North American porcupine. "

So here he is compared to Safari's beaver  Wink

The beaver looks smaller, but he does not have all those spikes Very Happy

More than cute, it is irresistible cheers

I was sure of that, I was sure I love you

Safari Ltd made a hit with this "first time ever" species. Even the painting is ok.

Thank you for the nice pics Susanne Very Happy

I already liked it on promotional pictures but now I like it even more and much more. I ahve to tell again that making a American porcupine in toy shape must be surely a very challenging task. That's likely one of the reasons why this species was never released before. Safari did it, with a very pleasant result and one thing I am sure, nobody did it better. Very Happy

I am also very happy with this American Porcupine, and it is even better when you can hold it in your hands than in pictures! I did not understand all the criticism it went through when Safari showed it in pictures, because I thought it was really well rendered. It is really difficult to portray all those fine thin quills, but I think the sculptor was able to cope with them, and in a realistic way. And hell yes, it is a never made species, and one that I thought would never been done by any major brand! Here it is, an outstanding triumph!

Thanks for the walk-around, Susanne! Great and really helpful, as usual!!!

I agree 100%! I always thought positively of this figure, even when the first pic was revealed. This walkaround confirms my thoughts!

Lovely comparison with its cousins. The colors here look nicer (more brownish with less contrast) than the promo pics. I also think it is competently done and I also didn't expect one from a toy company. There is no perfect way to mass-produce its fur, but importantly the feet and head are correct and give it the right character- the real thing looks like it ambled out of a fairy tale.

Safari tends to make some of these smaller animals relatively larger than other brands, which I have mixed feelings about but I'm sure others enjoy it. I would love to see a toob version of this model that could fit in among the larger forest animals.

I understand Andy and I'd rather also that these small mammals were made in smaller size. Some examples are the opossum, grey squirrel and American badger. Though, their size do not removes me from acquiring them and I have the three mentioned in my collection.

Ah, this reminds me how subjective this can be. For me, the size of the American badger is perfect to fit with my prairie dog town assemblage. And I suppose if someone is really concerned about scale then the squirrel could go with certain small rodents and birds. Laughing  So it all depends on context. I still like the porcupine and I still think it and others mentioned here would translate wonderfully into toobs, as was done with the raccoon and beaver.

You're completely right and now I see your post was more a wish of a tube sized figure than a complaint about the size of the Wild Safari ones. Your given examples of how to use these figures are great! Very Happy
