After the MOJO Giant sable, which you can see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], I received the SAFARI Ltd sable. Before you ask me to make a comparison topic, I want to show you this sable alone because it is a good model and I hope you will enjoy it.

This year is the sable antelope year and I will show all of them separately, as if they were the "only" sable. Of course, I will make also a " comparison" topic later  Wink

And now, here are the pics  Very Happy

That is a fabulous model indeed cheers

The sculpturing is differnet from most Safaris I think, - more detailed, isn`t it ?

Thankyou for this great walk around sunny

I also hate those white numbers...
The model itself is splendid! The legs are a bit distanced, but all in all I like it.

Fantastic walkaround Christophe!

(Those numbers also annoy me. When I was first collecting, I scraped the numbers off a Coyote. Once I started collecting more earnestly, I of course had to go out and buy another Safari Coyote, since the leg was ruined. I ignore the numbers now.)

Thanks for the excellent walk-around Christophe cheers

I have to say though, I'm not quite taken with him. He doesn't give me a thrill like the Mojo one does, this is just my opinion of course - I can see good points to this model.

It's not the color of numbers that bothers me, it's the location. White wolf has black numbers but stamped on the inside...

Robert, you can scratch those black numbers from the arctic wolf with a hobby knife - that's what I did. Just do it gently. It's a white plastic, no color under it. Wink

Thanks Gabe but I won't scratch them off. It doesn't bother me so much on the wolf but on Sable it pokes my eyes out...

I agree with ken on this. Granted, I have the Safari and not the Mojo, but still, from what I've seen, even though the Mojo seems to be painted much more nicely, and likely has other advantages, the Safari's pose appeals to me more.

The Safari Sable is like most of their figures: I like them more when I see them in person. Safari's often don't photograph very well. (Although an exception to this is the recent Safari Whitetail buck and doe. I think they photographed better than they look in person. It seems to be the opposite with Schleich: their figures often photograph better than they look in person. Not always, just often.)

Christophe's photos above, however, are quite excellent and give the viewer a very good idea of how the actual figure comes across.

As usual your walkarounds are amazing Christophe. I have decided for a lot of replicas seeing them (or looking to your web)
Thank you!!!

It looks the pose is more important for many people and I respect it, of course.
I personally don't like the pose of the Safari figure, legs are too spreed and take out some elegance to the figure and the head turning is a easy and photogenic option used in many Schleich cows. The figure looks nice when looking at the camera but not nice in all of other angles. Curiously, Lineol rarely used this pose used often in modern toys. The walk arround is absolutly excelent and we can see that Safari gave some atention to the detail but failed completly in general shape, hind legs, back, tail in the wrong point, strangled neck and weird chest turn the figure unbalanced in terms of shape. But if 2012 never existed before and this sable was a 2011 release we would see it as a very good replica. :)
I'm eager to see Kiki's comparison but maybe I'm being unfair once I'm only seeing pictures but for me gets relatively clear that Mojo is clearly better as well as I'm almost sure that Safari white tails are better than Mojo's. Very Happy
The best point is that we are having some reaction to the Mojo style and the result is a tremendous 2012 Mojo and CollectA lines and Safari reacting completly to the good starting of Mojo in North American market. Schleich is continuing as the sleepy brand under their huge commercial success.
Thanks a lot Christophe, everything is very clear in your pictures. Very Happy

Great pictures, thank you for showing! I haven't seen any of the new Sables in real life, but from the pictures I think my favourite (at the moment) is the one from CollectA!

I really like this model for some reason - however I still think the hooves and feet are too big/wide. I wish Safari could make their hoofed animals with smaller and smaller hooves!

Also the horns seem to seem backwards too quickly and it should be upright a little more. Perhaps a moulding issue with the plastic - something which we could fix with the hair dryer/cold water method.

however I like the detail on this model and it seems to have character, I think its very nice indeed! Cant wait to get a herd of them....

Exactly!!
Safari is weird with hooves... they are too big and round (cape buffalo, giraffes, pronghorn, oryx...). I don´t like them scratch
Hooves of horses, zebras or donkeys are great but other animals... nope. scratch

I really like this model for some reason - however I still think the hooves and feet are too big/wide. I wish Safari could make their hoofed animals with smaller and smaller hooves!

Also the horns seem to seem backwards too quickly and it should be upright a little more. Perhaps a moulding issue with the plastic - something which we could fix with the hair dryer/cold water method.

however I like the detail on this model and it seems to have character, I think its very nice indeed! Cant wait to get a herd of them....
Exactly!!
Safari is weird with hooves... they are too big and round (cape buffalo, giraffes, pronghorn, oryx...). I don´t like them scratch
Hooves of horses, zebras or donkeys are great but other animals... nope. scratch

That's only problem to me too! Always oversize!!

I must put a link showing that the pose of the Mojo sable was a choice from members of this forum, Kiki already told it, isn't it a little unelegant this kind of comments when it was the first brand that gave us the chance of making such choice?
It doesn't surprise me that some brands are very far from us, like Schleich, Papo and so. Sad
I have a huge respect for the democratic decisions of this forum and for the brands that care with collector opinions.

The main problem is - people mix phrase "good pose" with "good model"
Is this a good pose? Yes, I suppose it is...

Well, nobody is perfect Laughing

I guess every sable will find a fan club... And that's not a bad thing. I understand one can prefer the pose of the SAFARI Ltd. Even if the MOJO pose was the choice of STS, some members disagreed and again, why not ? But it's fair to remember the pose was not MOJO choice.

I have the SAFARI ltd and MOJO FUN models and I have my favorite too, but my "less loved" one is a very good model too... 2012 will probably be an excellent year for collectors Very Happy

Exactly! I was speaking just for myself, Roger Neutral And you know I had some problems with standing pose of Mojo sable... we had a little fight about it... But even though I like this model and it will not be missing in my collection! I looove Mojo as a brand. I love them for listening to fans and James is a great guy and it´s nothing against them!!

I forget to say the "best pose" isn't the main criterion to choose my favorite Laughing Wink

I only have the Safari sable so far but will get the other three. I really would say the pose of the Safari Sable is my favorite, as well as the female CollectA Sable. The Safari one looks to be hand painted with a very bright white while the Mojo and CollectA are airbrushed with a less bright white. The stance of the Safari one I think is exactly the same as the Safari Zebra...but they are great. I like his face--not sure which is more true to life but I feel the Mojo face looks very thin.

Even thin, the MOJO fun face, and body Wink , is more true to life Very Happy

I like the pose, brighter paint and muscles of this one better than mojo's and collecta's.
