Ok I remember posting in this forum about one of Safari Ltd's sculptors pages and I believe I see some new releases (there's a bowhead whale, cave life toob set, life cycle of the luna moth, and cambrian age sea life toob)

I think people need to put personal feelings aside when they get dissapointed with the yearly release (I do admit I was angry with the 2012 releases for a while lol but I got over it). As sphyrna said its a business. When you look deep into last years stuff, there's something for everyone to enjoy (even though the dino eggs seem blah, its something for the younger kids). So that being said, be grateful for whats to come, who knows your wishlist animal might come true in the years to come (I've been pushing Safari to put an oarfish figure lol).

Cave life and Cambrian toobs are already in my BIG wish list and not at the end of the list bounce It would be great.

Bowhead whale is great too but it is a Resin model, if SAFARI ltd make one it would be a dream come true for some of us cheers

Looking more I see some resin models that are already SAFARI Ltd toys...

It means we could see a Bowhead whale, a Giant octopus, a sidewinder snake, a Lambeosaurus, a dicraeosaurus and two new toobs Shocked bounce cheers
Now we have to wait Sleep bounce Sleep bounce Sleep bounce Sleep bounce Sleep bounce

here we go

read this

i found on the DT forum

Talk about timing. Safari 2013 Preview Catalog was revealed today, and it is awesome. I wish I could share details, but I will say that there is a lot to love for the non-dinosaur prehistoric fan. Definitely a few that I've seen people clamoring for. Five new species for the Wild Safari line.

Thanks Martien5 new species for Wild Safari series can be red deer, roe deer, European beaver, badger and hare. In this case nothing really new considering how poor is Safari with European fauna. Anyway, if they continue with other continents fauna, like Dall's sheep, grevy's zebra, Sunda clouded leopard, water buffalo and pigmy 3-toed sloth. So it is really new and exciting! Very Happy bounce

PostSubject: Pictures of new SAFARI prehistoric figures at facebook   Thu Sep 27, 2012 2:05 pm

Hey everyone :)

I've just seen a post at facebook by a German trader of prehistoric models. it contains some pictures of the new 2013 prehistoric models by SAFARI LTD. at the moment i have no time to post the fotos here, but i will do that as soon as possible Wink

these are the figures which are shown in the fotos:
- micro-dinosaurs: spinosaurus, ornithocheirus, apatosaurus
- concavenator
- diabloceratops
- elasmosaurus
- gastornis
- gryposaurus
- dimorphodon
- Cambrian life: anomalocaris, vauxia, ottoia, naraoia, trilobite, sanctacaris, sidneyia, charniodiskus

I am very happy about the coming of the gastornis figure :) will get this one definetly! maybe prehistoric birds are getting more popular among the brands and we will see some more in the next year! that would be awesome :)

best greets,
frederik Wink

Honestly, I expected more. Most of the new figurees are white/black/glow in the dark variants of pre-existing figures. Only the Fennec, Wildebeests and Sunfish are on my wishlist.

Thanks Sommo!
I'll try not to make negative comments! We cannot judge only from what we collect. There are news in lots of series. :)
From those that doesn't interest to me I think prehistoric line and toobs are interersting! Very Happy
From those that interests to me, Wings of the World! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Very cute for my niece! Wink
Wild Safari, as a collector of species and foxes, surely I'm very happy with a fennec and at the moment the main character on 2013 releases. But the figure doesn't look very realistic but it is only a catalogue picture.
The wolverine looks great, I love the pose and proportions, but why a wolverine when Schleich released it recently and Mojo released last year? ... a reaction to how Mojo goes in North American market? scratch
Gnus I understand, they are very known animals and the brand missed it. I'll also understand if CollectA rleases a cheetah for example. cat
White lions, elk, black fox and wolf I won't comment now! silent
The only thing I can say at this moment about the Easter screech owl is that Pokemons are very popular here and I'm sure it will be a success.
My wish list? ... ... ... 2 figures! Very Happy Very Happy

I love birds' tube, is a must have for me! Very Happy
Shame the owl is so big, 12cm is as big as Schleich elephant in shoulders or bigger Laughing
I love fennec and gnus, and wolverine also Very Happy Wapiti looks interesting but I'm not sure if I like this very white color on the back scratch
Solar system is quite crazy idea... What a Face
I don't worry there will be so many wolverines on market from 2013, it's one of my favorite animals, I think it would be great to have another replica of this specie! cheers
And just CANNOT WAIT for birds tube and fennec bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce bounce Basketball

Yay more water critters! Goldfish, flying fish, and the mola-mola! I love the new prehistoric stuff too! The only thing I'm dissapointed with is the humpback whale, seriously another one? But oh well! :)

Haha I noticed that too, maybe the sculpt company didn't realize Safari Ltd fans would ever find out about that page and Safari Ltd probably told them to take the pictures down.

The goldfish! :O
It's terrible. I mean, it's head is so defective that it looks positively retarded! That is, if you can get past the fact that it has fins on all the wrong places (shapes are weird too).
And if it's really a 1:1 scale, the model should be 30 cm long.

Sorry for the rant. It's just... I love goldfish and It'd be nice to see a model of a normal one :)

Okay, this is bad for me. I don't care about toobs or dinos etc..., I only collect animals in well normal sizes and 2012 was a very bad year for Safari and 2013 will be even worse, only Fennec Fox and Wolverine look interesting to me.

Thanks for the link! I think this year's line up looks decent. I couldn't care less about the Glow-in-the-Dark stuff, and I have to limit the prehistorics I collect, but I'm pleased with the Backyard Birds Toob. It's about time that they did this!! Backyard birdwatching is very, very popular - this Toob should be a hit!

The Incredible Creatures Eastern Screech-Owl, Townsends Big-eared Bat Cool Atlantic Flying Fish Sad(o)): ; and even the Goldfish are all pretty cool looking.

That Wildlife Wonders Cheetah looks outstanding!!! AND, it's in 1:10 scale, as are other Wildlife Wonders figures like 2012's Wolf and Black Bear, as well as the Lion, Tigers, and several others. This should make some people happy!

I like the Wild Safari Wildebeest and Fennec Fox Sad(o)): . He looks accurate enough to me. Not 100%, but enough that I knew what he was before seeing the title. White Lions are all the rage right now, and this seems to be reflected in the offerings from Papo, CollectA, and now Safari. I wondered when the toy companies would catch on to the popularity of these cats, and it seems Papo was first to, then CollectA, now Safari.

The North American Wildlife all looks outstanding except the Black Fox, which is missing the grizzled markings to make it accurate. The black wolf is another long overdue addition. Regardless of one's views of color variants, they are an economical way of introducing something different to the consumer. Black Wolves capture a lot of people's imaginations and seem to be the poster-wolves of the Yellowstone reintroduction program, so their inclusion in this line was only a matter of time. Roger, I don't think the Wolverine is a response to Mojo, I'm sorry. Wolverines are very popular animals, they've been featured recently in a number of commercials on tv, more zoos are starting to feature them; Marvel named a very popular superhero after them (who has another movie coming soon), and many Americans view them as a symbol of our fierce natural heritage. Plus, countless sports teams feature them as a mascot. It would be ridiculous for Safari to NOT make one. Besides, Schleich's Wolverine sucks. Mojo's is awesome, but Mojo is a young company with nowhere near the availability that Safari has, at least not here in the US. I've only seen Mojo in very small numbers at Hobby Lobby, who also carries a much more extensive selection of Safari figures, as do all the major craft supply chains. Mojo is creating new, exciting figures, many of which I own and love, but to say that Safari, Scheich, or Papo are copying them or responding to them in any way is severely premature. Not when examining all the other possible motives a company may have for making a particular figure. Just like with the Sable: in 2010, I personally requested Safari make a Sable, was told they would look into it, and lo-and-behold, one was made. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who ever suggested it to them, and at the time there were some major zoos that were acquiring new / introducing newborn sables (which is what prompted me to request one). They also take requests from zoos pretty seriously, so if a zoo requests something, it's probably going to get made. The Arabian Oryx is one such example that I know was a zoo request.

That Elk looks really good, too, and is such a vast improvement over their last one! Elk are a different species than Red Deer, and this figure will finally mean that I feature an Elk in my collection! Ana, the white color is accurate, not that you have to like it, but it is at least accurate:

I'm totally in love with the Ocean Sunfish (another request I made of Safari a long time ago, I might mention). I'm a little disappointed with the Humpback Whale, though. Looks like they just scaled up their former WS Humpback Whale calf, which sucked. Oh well.

And I'm lovin the look of that Luna Moth life cycle set. I like Luna Moths, so that set is probably a must have!

Overall, I think this year offers some really nice pieces. A bit heavy on the glow-in-the-dark stuff, but ya gotta admit, that crap sells. A lot! And while color morphs of already released animals may not be the coolest "new" figure, again, they sell well and cost nothing to produce, so they're really a no-brainer. Without massive sales of things like that, we wouldn't get the Wildebeests, Fennec Foxes, Wolverines, Flying Fish, Veiled Chameleons, Ocean Sunfish, Cambrian Life, or any other possibly risky species. It's like the Dragons line - they are cool looking, yes, but they don't have to be. Dragons are really popular right now, and they sell like freaking hotcakes. Safari's the only company that produces a wide variety of them to choose from, and given Safari's continued support of the line, I'd say people are collecting them all. If I had the space and money, I certainly would. They look awesome!

Honestly I'm a lot more excited for this year as I wanted Safari to make a sunfish and flying fish model and I'm glad they did! I love the new prehistorics as well. I'm hoping for next year for a oarfish model!

I like the Wolverine,Fennec,Palamino,Elk,black Percheron-good to see this colour-and the black Wolf-long overdue-maybe others will do wolves in colours other than grey/brown/white.The black fox is rather odd-know its a colour in Red Foxes but think the should have went with the cross fox colouring-much more attractive.Also like the Gastornis.

a lot of new stuff. In my wishlist there're 2 tubes (birds and cambrian). Atlantic flying fish is very nice, but I don't collect "incredible creatures" series, too big for me. In wild safari dinos I'm interested on gastornis and maybe Rolling Eyes diabloceratops. From wild safari I'm making some space in my shelves for the fennec fox, but I'm also ready to repaint that so big eyes Shocked . The bowhead whale some people (and me) have talked about is not in the catalogue (maybe next year), but the sunfish is a great figure and I will buy it for sure.

Well, around 5 new safari items for me in 2013.

I agree , - that percheron is beautyful drunken

The more I look, the more goodies I find : the bat with the huge ears, - the flying fish, the toob from Cambrian aera, sunfish ... Very Happy

One thing that surprises me is that there is only ONE new Carnegie-dino !
Not much for the selebration of theyr 25 years cooperation scratch
