Sorry, I don`t know much about Safari, we can`t buy it here in Denmark.
Gut, ohhh, beneath the lion there are both a badger, an otter, the lesser Kudu, - and Christophe sowed us the fabulous ram. Safari makes som great wild animals indeed cheers

I saw that too, that Safari named some of their lion-models the Angolan subspecies, but if the difference between the subspecies is clear to be seen, specially in the models, i doubt very much... Rolling Eyes

I was at Hobby Lobby comparing the two today and came to the conclusion that the Angolan lion is way better than the 2011 lion that replaced it. I mean look at these pictures:

I think the new one is better. However, the WW one is the best Cool

Lance, I think you are comparing both from wild series! I only have the older one and seeing pictures from the 2011 is hard to believe that it is worst than the Angolan! Could you please share with us why are you thinking it, maybe you saw some points that we are not able to see from pictures! Also remember that the new one is not an Angolan! It was very interesting to understand your points of view! Very Happy

PostSubject: why Angolan lion is better   Fri Jul 08, 2011 3:49 pm

the Angolan lion is shaped more lean like a real lion, its body has a highly detailed paint job, it has a smoother texture and its face is sculpted to perfection, this 2007 lion cannot be topped, the new lion (not the wildlife wonders lion) is fatter, has a much more simple paint job, and just does not look as good. i was so unimpressed that i did not buy him even when he was on sale. I am a major Safari collector and i own three of their male lions, but this new one is not their best. Sad

I saw the new lion this year, and I was not impressed. It looks like a cheap smaller version of the WW lion. Too bad they just couldn't have made an exact smaller replica of the WW lion! If you notice last year, they did a really nice job of making a smaller version of their WW Asian elephant!

This is really interesting! Seeing the first pictures of Safari lion I thought it was very heavy and with a short body, for example! Knowing it from you it looks Safari concentrated their knowledge in WW lion, as an article collector and made a poor figure for regular range since it was done thinking in children! This is a very bad news for me since extra large WW figures are not what I'm really collecting and honestly I agree they look very nice but donnot have quality standards that justifies such high prices, I can find nice figures in cheaper series!
We have the Papo lion, a detailed and impressive figure and the Mojo lion, the best balanced in terms of proportions of all!
