Do you think it's alright to say some great news I have about the 2011 Safari ltd now? I don't want to get into trouble for revealing anything too early. I'm itching to tell you all though!!!

Harriet, if you think it's too early, we can wait. Nobody here want to see you in trouble. Very Happy

I f smeone gave you good info and asked you to wait a bit, do it because it's the best way to have more info.

Waiting is not a problem for us I guess, it's the everyday life of a collector Wink

Harriet,the sneak preview contains a lot of animals.When you say more are on the way,you refer to the categories already mentioned(like Wild Safari), or the other ones(like humans)?

Well, at least one antelope - lesser kudu - one can see in the Sneak Preview PDF. Or you wonder if there will be more? :)

Justin didn't say anything about anymore types of antelopes other than the Lesser Kudu, but there is one hoofed animal coming out in one of the series, isn't an antelope though.

Hoorah! We are getting some progress! This should be really exciting. I really hope it is in a much nicer pose and sculpt than the standard Safari Okapi! I cant wait!

If they are branching into an Okapi now then we may get an antelope in 2012!

Okapi must be doing well with Safari because they have also made mini toobs version of the current okapi for 2011.

Thanks for the photos of the 2011 Safari ltd! I like the Indian rhino(just wish they had made it bigger!). disappointed with the Okapi Wildlife Wonders(Other than zebras & giraffes, I'll never ever be a hoof stock(antelopes, sheep, & deer) fan), although it looks extremely nice, as usual rather would have seen a Cheetah, Mountain Lion, Bonobo or an Indian Rhino!
Just wondering how big the capybara is? Also it looks like a lynx is in the same tray?

I think it's a Bobcat actually, as that's one of the animals Justin mentioned to me.

Thanks so much for posting these. These are EXCELLENT photos! How on earth did you come by them?

The Okapi is absolutely beautiful! Such fantastic detailed paintwork. I was not a fan but I am really loving the Wildlife Wonders range...its seem to pick up from the Vanishing wild range and indeed the models match in scale. The Zebra wildlife wonders is gorgeous and I cant wait to get the Okapi. I do hope they expand and bring out an antelope next year.

The models in the pictures all look perfect, they are painted really well but the sad thing is when the early prototypes are made they look perfect but then when the models are in full scale production the paintwork sometimes drops.....oh well!

I want the Okapi prototype! :-)

That's the crucial question for me too! We know the size of Kudu and Rhinos, but how big are bobcat, badger and capybara? Those are rare animal figurines and I'd be extremely happy if they are not too large in comparison with Schleich N.&S. American critters.

This is the sad truth... But let's hope for good!

First, it's not me you should be thanking for these fantastic pictures, but Marina! She took the pictures and posted them on LG and I just posted a link here. She said she would upload better pictures soon, so we can all see them more detailed, I hope she posts them here!
But they are FABULOUS aren't they!!! I can't wait to get the Okapi! I love the Indian Rhino, although the black around the eyes looks a bit funny, but nothing a bit of paint couldn't touch up. I can't tell if I like the lesser kudu or not, have to wait and see.

PostSubject: Kudu and Rhino   Fri Oct 01, 2010 6:01 pm

The Rhino and Llama are also stunning especially the Indian Rhino - really superb.

The Kudu looks great but one thing which really annoys me about antelopes is that they always turn the heads. The kudu looks great but I dont really like the pose very much. Why do they always make the heads turn in such a way? I wish more models were looking more straight ahead.

Examples include Schleich Ibex, Okapi, Gazelle, Oryx......

That's the crucial question for me too! We know the size of Kudu and Rhinos, but how big are bobcat, badger and capybara? Those are rare animal figurines and I'd be extremely happy if they are not too large in comparison with Schleich N.&S. American critters.

I guess you will be disapointed again Kirill Crying or Very sad A capybara at the same scale than the Schleich jaguar couldn't exceed 5cm long, which is a little bit small for a model Wink

But, most important, Happy Kiki will have a capybara in 2011 cheers

I've got the same opinion! Hoofed animals look better when looking straight or with head down - grazing.
Moreover, have you noticed the difference in Kudu's painting in the PDF pic and on Marina's photo? In real life the painting seems not too natural.

Yes I noticed that, a bit disappointing actually.

Thank you Marina and Harriet for this great news! cheers
I love the Indian rhino, whatever size it has, and the okapi and some others seem to be good too!
And now i see how famous our great friend Christophe is in the collectors world, as they made a special model from him... Wink geek

First i want to welcome Justin to the forum here, a very warm welcome from the Netherlands! cheers
Thank you for revealing this great and exciting news for us all!
Schleich has to do really their best to catch up with some of these fantastic new models!

The idea of starting on own brand could be possible indeed...
Most of us don't have the resources to start a company of our own, but when we would combine our money and recources together, we could make this happen! cheers
But we need to sit together for this i guess... Rolling Eyes
We could come up with a great brandname, and we would be sure that all models are in the exact same scale to eachother, and we would make all the species that we possibly never would see in any other brands, or known and already made species in nicer positions...
Or is this just a dream to chase after? Laughing
We could make a dream come true here! king
I think and really believe that it would be possible! farao

By the way Harriet, i think it would be great to put this new Safari catalogue in the catalogue-section of this forum too, and i miss the pages 6 and 7... Laughing
