That's an important remark, by the way! Catalog pics are so often rather far from reality...

That's the main problem, I confess I like the brand Safari, mainly when talking about diversity and sculptings but painting is almost always terrible and worst than in catalogue. I think people is already thinking that the painting will be not good as usual in many Safari figures! I'll wait to see! Rolling Eyes

Strange enough, but paintwork can differ from the pics into both sides - positive and negative. Examples by Safari: seeing catalog pics, I didn't like the paintwork of their Flamingo, Mandarin Duck & Puffin, but in real life I liked them. Especially the flamingo - one of the best bird figurines of all times, for my personal taste.

This is what Safari Ltd posted on my disappointment on the lack of sealife:

"Kevin sorry you're disappointed however we have demand for many different models and we were able to only introduce one Wild Safari Sealife this year. We will be introducing more next year."

To be honest I'm superpissed Evil or Very Mad and because of this, it just made my day go down. Lol oh well, sometimes I just wonder why I'm overreacting over an animal figure. I seem to be more looking foward to Collecta's stuff now. An

This is quite a big dissappointment, no mahor new wildlife figures, only ONE sealife addition, some of the more obscure figures like the safariology are ok, the skulls tube is also. However there is nothing major, look at CollectA and Mojo, they are bold and have amazing new figures, elands, okapi, red river hog, walruses, killer whale etc. Why has Safari stopped? They are falling behind in the race!!

My faves - White-tailed deer and Gypsy Vanner horse. These are the ones I'll definitely want to buy.
Others either don't appeal to me or are too big Neutral

Never thought i'd ever hear myself say this, but i think the chipmunk is my favorite.* Shocked affraid i find it so appealing, and i don't even like chipmunks much. They fall in to the 'cute little rodent type thing, whatever'. But this little cutie is so sweet!



*Not counting the Sable of course. i hope it goes without saying that he's the one i want. It's a Sable after all!
(I should probably disclose that i will take a bad ungulate over the best of any other family.)

Seriously... The sable is on SAFARI Ltd facebook wish list for a long time now, before we began to talk about MOJO sable... Even before we ever heard about MOJO... We are not the centre of the world Wink

In fact I don't expect Safari Ltd to Introduce a lot of new models in 2012. In 2011 only 9 models in wild life and forest life been introduced. This year since is a bit less than last year.

I am utterly shocked by the release of the Sable Antelope - How on earth is it possible for so many to come out altogether in one year? This reminds me of a couple of years back with the release of the Malayan Tapir by everyone at the same time.

How can Safari Ltd have produced a Sable out of all the antelopes they could possibly make?

Mojo released it because of the poll and we knew for a long time that a Sable is greatly desired.

The CollectA one was created due to my requesting this from them in late 2010 before the Mojo poll so that is a genuine is case of pushing for one around the time of the Mojo poll - now we get two from them which was a great surprise but Safari Ltd too? For anyone who doubts the CollectA model was not produced as part of the Mojo poll - it was discussed with them long before that as I have always wanted one and kept asking Ana to make me a version last year but she was busy at that time. I am just a little shocked that Safari have jumped on the bandwagon lol

Also the Bearded dragon is another surprise.......all three have one coming out although the Safari Ltd version is a larger model.

I know we all like to see as many animals as possible but personally I dont like it when all the brands bring out the same animal. I honestly prefer everyone to think on their own and make something unique, that way we have more variety.....

Safari need to conduct their own polls in future! Very Happy

Seriously, if the figure was waited and wanted for a long time why only in 2012? I'm sure we are not the center of the world but I know how market works. How many wanted figures are in Safari Facebook, with such a limited new releases why was the choice a sable? How many asked another white tail? Mojo Fun is already in US market and Safari knew a long time ago that Mojo was developing a sable. Why has they started with it?
Because many FB friends wanted it? I agree, mainly because they wanted it and they would have the chance of finding it in another brand! geek pale

Maybe is coincide to produce Black Sable and the "Ball game" seems like changing too fast to compared with three years ago. During that time the competition is small. And you look at 2012 the animal toy market is moving faster than before. Especially Mojofun and Collecta are so aggressive in 2012. Maybe Safari should considering Introducing some more animals in second half of the year.

Safari do answer the request. But is late by one or two years and unexpected that Mojofun & Collecta run a lead this round.

Mihnea, I'll get it exactly because they followed our request! Laughing I love when brands follow us and that would be a reason to people get happy! :)
What I don't like in this decision is that they followed our choice not because they wanted to please us but because they were afraid of seeing our money going to other brands! But, with a weird retired Schleich one can buy a herd of sables! Wink

I know right, last year was so much better. Since 2012 is a year that many people make a big deal about, Safari could at least went all out. Well at least the shark is not some re-sculpt.

yeah Kev, at least you've got a new shark. I only have (so far) the trilobite fossil and the Butterflies Toob. The butterflies worry me that they are going to be random paint jobs and not represent actual species.

Maybe we'll be lucky and the Flikr stream doesn't show everything.

Safari seems to focus on educational toys like lifecycle sets and the like, so there's no wonder that Wildlife series isn't a priority for them.

Here's what Safari Ltd had to say on only releasing oe Carnegie figure:

Safari Ltd. For 2012, we decided to introduce only the Brachio due to the large amount of workmanship in such an intricate piece especially when dealing with accuracy. This new model is based on the latest scientific research. In 2013, it will be the 25th year anniversary of our collaboration with Carnegie. For this milestone, we will be introducing some special dinosaurs. Information on what the introductions will be is confidential at this time like it has been done historically.

Hmm maybe there migh be a suprise, didn't Safari keep the 2011 WS T-rex as a suprise?

Thanks. Seems closer to Wildlife Wonders sizes.
Actually, they are the part of Wildlife Wonders. At least there is such inscription on the pictures with these two.

This is what Safari Ltd posted on my disappointment on the lack of sealife:

"Kevin sorry you're disappointed however we have demand for many different models and we were able to only introduce one Wild Safari Sealife this year. We will be introducing more next year."

To be honest I'm superpissed Evil or Very Mad and because of this, it just made my day go down. Lol oh well, sometimes I just wonder why I'm overreacting over an animal figure. I seem to be more looking foward to Collecta's stuff now. An


I'm also disappointed that they didn't bring out much for sea life this year. Didn't someone say that they were going to work on the Monterey Bay line in 2012? That might be what they mean by "We will be introducing more next year".

Lol that was me, I'm gonna keep pushing them to add to that collection. If Wildlife Wonders and the Carnegie, etc keep getting new additons why not MBA? Its not really fair for sealife fans to always be in left in the dark.

I can't even believe ...three ..no...FOUR sables ( including the collecta's female)...! I am very happy about that, they are reproducing my avatar and I'm going to buy all of them for sure! What a year! Sables, waterbuck,Giant eland,red river hog,striped hyena,black wildebeest,red panda ( I haven't seen any photo yet).
Safari works very well I'm only disappointed because they have so little new releases this year...but what they produced I like so much...the virginian deers family looks fine to me .
Let' s see what Papo is gonna make and some surprises from Bullyland? Who knows....
Anyway my wallet starts crying!!....but I can't wait!!

Yes, I remember it was you. MBA needs some new figures. They added the pacific white-sided dolphin, sea otters and narwhal. Then they discontinued the dolphin and the otters. So really the only new addition they've had to the line is the narwhal.

The Otters were added early in the MBA line, then were the first to be discontinued. I think I got the Sea Otters as stocking stuffers for Christmas one year, in like 1992 or 1993. Wasn't the Narwhal the last one introduced? The Giant Squid preceeded it by a year, I believe. It's interesting - just yesterday I was at the Smithsonian and they have a Giant Squid that was 11 meters long! And they noted that it is believed that it was not even the maximum size... It was amazingly ugly haha! Just a ghostly white now - the preservation process was not kind to it (it had actually shrunk by as much as 2 to 3 meters during initial preservation) - even so, it was enormous. I wish MBA would be updated with new figures - I remember when Kevin talked to Safari and they said 2012 was gonna be a big year for MBA - but with how bad the economy has been this year, it doesn't surprise me that Safari has cut back on releases for the upcoming year. I haven't seen many new 2011 figures in stores even this late in the year, so I'm sure they're hurting (just like most companies are right now). I'm sure that's what's going on with Schleich, too - the fantasy figures are where the money's right now, so we're seeing fewer new animal figures, and more emphasis on fantasy. Safari's focusing on the Dragons, which seem to sell well in stores around my area. In fact, Dragons seem to be outselling dinosaurs right now - likely an artifact of the popularity of movies and books like Harry Potter. It just would have been nice if Safari had been like, "yeah, we wanted to release new MBA figures, but we're gonna have to hold them til next year." Instead, it seems to me like they just denied any knowledge of having said 2012 would see new MBA releases.
