Hi Guys,

Well, I saw some of you have started threads about Schleich and CollectA for 2019, so here is my contribution: a thread for Safari Ltd 2019. So, what are your wishes? I myself would personally like to see an Incredible Creatures Earthworm, or a Leatherback Sea Turtle. At this point, I have sent in many suggestions to the folks at Safari (These suggestions were sent via my sales rep, since I'm a retailer). Anyway, I can't remember all of my suggestions, so here's a few that I recently came up with:

Incredible Creatures: Earthworm, Leatherback Sea Turtle, Hummingbird, Soa-soa Lizard, Gecko (Any species), Fruit Bat.

Wildlife Wonders: Bactrian Camel, Arctic Wolf (Lying).

Safari Farm: New Dwarf Lop Rabbit, Guinea Pig, Chicks, Rabbit Babies, Guinea Pig Babies, Swan Cygnets.

Wild Safari Prehistoric: Andrewsarchus, Arsinotherium, and MORE MAMMALS! Please!

Wings of the World: Hummingbird, Pigeon, Seagull, New Condor, Great Gray Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Spotted Owl.

Wild Safari Sea Life: Finless Porpoise, Coral Reef Fish (Any sorts really), Electric Eel, Deep Sea Fish (any species), Finless Porpoise Calf, Dall's Porpoise, Bryde's Whale, Narwhal Calf, Narwhal.

And that's it for now. Well, let me know if you have any wishes, it's always nice to hear from all of you.

Anna

P.S. A Crocodile Life Cycle would be interesting too, don't you think?

So, I never understood these 'wish lists'; I think most people are setting themselves up for disappointment, or come up with really odd selections that are likely to never get made. However, this is one of the more thoughtful wish lists I have seen, and includes animals within the realm of possibility for Safari (although Safari does appear to be getting more bold). Plus it mirrors some I imagine for the Incredible Creatures line.

Keeping with the theme of taxonomic diversity that Safari did this year with their I.C. line, here is what I would envision (not wish for, per se, but could see Safari making):

MAMMAL: naked mole rat/vampire bat (resting; not flying)/pygmy fairy armadillo
BIRD: hummingbird/small passerine of sorts
FISH: mudskipper/sarcastic fringehead [mouth open, of course]
AMPHIBIAN: Surinam toad/Japanese firebell toad/axolotl/olm
REPTILE: chuckwalla/gecko or sorts/colubrid snake of sorts
INVERT: mantis shrimp/crayfish/tardigrade/leech [an earthworm is more likely, but a leech would be more interesting--I fear an earthworm would be a re-release of the life cycle figure]

This should go to the Safari LTD specific section tho. I am sure the mods can work their magic.

I understand Safari is an American brand, so it tends to focus especially on North-American fauna. And as much as it has offered us incredible species such as this year's Black-tailed Jackrabbit or North-American Porcupine, I would also like to see more South-American animals in their future range of products, since I think it is the less represented continent.

As a collector of mainly mammals, I would like to see the following species:

- Spectacled Bear (so we can have all the bear species).
- Vicuña (so we can have all the camelids).
- Marsh Deer
- Pampas Deer
- Any of the two Pudu
- Any of the two Huemul
- Giant Otter
- Giant Armadillo
- Pink fairy Armadillo
- Paca
- Any Agouti species
- Vinegar Dog
- Short-eared Dog
- Culpeo Fox
- Southern Gray Fox
- Plains Viscacha
- Mountain Viscacha
- Patagonian Mara
- Andean Cat
- Jaguaroundi
- Margay
- Pampas Cat
- Any coati species
- Bald Uacari
- Saki
- Any Capuchin Monkey
- Emperor Tamarin

But anyway, I will be happy if they give us as many unusual and daring species as they have done this year!

A canadian goose, a wildlife wonders arctic wolf, a female elk and calf, and a mule deer of some sort would be my main wishes from Safari for the coming year.

It's hard for me to distinguish what I personally happen to want from what a commercially viable wish list would be :)

I think Safari should get around to making a mountain goat, bighorn sheep, and Canada goose. I'd like to see their go at a wood buffalo as well, and maybe a golden eagle. After that, it's just the prehistoric mammals I want, like a Columbian mammoth, stag moose, short-faced bear, and other kinds of giant sloths besides the standard Megatherium (i.e.: Jefferson's, Harlan's, and Shasta).

Oh, don't we all suffer from this limitation!

I only collect Safari's prehistoric line, and I'd like to see more prehistoric themed Toobs, perhaps a Devonian Toob, a Permian Toob, a prehistoric amphibians Toob?

For the full sized line, weird things like Paleozoic and Triassic synapsids, turtles like Calcarichelys, prehistoric fishes, pterosaurs, notosuchian crocodiles. But of course I'll still buy the dinosaurs, because they tend to be the best versions of their respective species around.

A great idea to make toobs with animals from different periods Applause
Sometimes I have tried to lear how old the different kinds are, but I find that it is almost impossible to remember ...the visual help from little models would be wonderful cheers

Only, - they need to double check with somebody who knows about it.
Not like the "Feathered dinosaurs" :

I am almost sure that the apatosaurus and the chasmosaurus had no feathers at all scratch

Ha ha, I wonder if they included those because they worried that if all the dinosaurs were feathered they would look too much alike.

PostSubject: News from safari   Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:01 pm

Hi guys,

Well, I just learned from my sales rep, that the product developers have a pretty good idea of what is in store for 2019. Unfortunately, we, as collectors, won't know what the products are until November of this year. But while we wait, we can still speculate about what's coming out. Also, if they (Safari), do come out with an Incredible Creatures earthworm, I do hope it's poseable. If it isn't, then I wouldn't buy this figure for my collection. Oh well, we'll just have to see. Hey, also I like the idea of a columbian mammoth. Although Safari did some really good renditions of prehistoric mammals this year, I would like to see more prehistoric mammals than dinosaurs in the coming years. By the way, have any of you seen the wild safari macrauchenia? In my opinion, it is really a great figure. Well, I have to go now, but I'll try and write you all later.

Anna
