Not much for the selebration of theyr 25 years cooperation scratch

In the past, they released 2 figures per year in the Carnegie Collection. They would always unveil one early in the previews and save the other for much, much later. Not sure why, but that's how they always did it. Prehaps that's what they're doing again, or we're only getting one new figure.

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:

In general I'm very happy to see this specie, I miss it in my collection because previous version of Safari was not satisfying for me. This one looks so much better than previous, and I think it will be on my wishlist.
Yes, I know there should be white color in back but it looks for me too white. You know, like teeth color in many other figures. It just would look nicer if white shade is mixed with beige. :) rendeer

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.

Chad, commercial responses and copies are completly diferent things. Commercial responses are the result of a competitive market, copies are lack of honesty. So nothing of pejorative in my comment.
Also, I don't think that Safari developers think in Mojo as a neglegible brand while developing their market strategy only because Safari has a stronger representation in its home market. I believe that the fact of Safari internationally being a mosquito when compared with Schleich doesn't mean that Schleich doesn't need to follow and react to Safari productions.
Honestly, I'm almost sure that the release of a wolverine in 2013 by Safari is not indeed related with Mojo or Schleich wolverines.
However about the sable I have a completely diferent opinion but I don't want to bring that discussion again and I'm happy you believe they made it under your request.
Please don't get me ironical in this comment but I enjoy the positive way that you turn some cheap repaintings, using the same mold and basic colors, in a great response to customers wishes. I think the Safari developer wouldn't be more eloquent! Laughing
I don't like repainted molds being launched as new releases and that's my opinion whatever is the brand. A competent developer doesn't need to epaint figures to support the release of less commercially successful figures, a competent developer is the one that brings new successful figures to the market being innovative.
I hope so many black painting on Safari figures could mean that they changed the way they paint the figures, no other brand on market paints black as badly as Safari does and that would represent a great improvement.
I also hope that the wolverine is not as large as the raccoon because I like a lot the catalogue picture. I'm also eager to have the fennec fox in my hands although it doesn't look nothing special.
Safari is still one of my favorites brands and I appreciate a lot the work that this brand developes, mainly when we are talking about the Safari of the Arctic wolf, giant anteater, aardvark, surely not the Safari of the white lions, black fox or black wolf! Very Happy

It almost seems like they have been watching our wishlists, the fennec, the wolf... and that wolverine! The elk is pretty good in my opinion, I have seen thousands in my little over decade and a half of living, there haven't been very many made anyways, all he needs now is a cow and calf!!!

I agree entirely. I never acquired the old Safari Elk; it was just really unimpressive. This new one looks better.

I'm really excited about the Fennec and the Wolverine. But I have the worry that Roger expressed above--I worry that one or both of these animals will be oversized, like the Safari Raccoon (which is a nice model, but just so big). I really like the look of the wolverine and while it doesn't look nearly as impressive as the Mojo, I'm still absolutely delighted to see it.

The cheetah looks way too big. (An inch taller than the Gnu!) That's disappointing.

The black wolf and fox just irritate me. I really don't like buy the same model in a different color. I did it once with the schleich white tiger and with the papo jaguars and leopards, but I won't do it again.

One last complaint: I was hoping for a good dog or two. I wasn't much moved by the German Shepherd. It's too bad.

The one nice thing about new releases by Safari: I'll actually be able to get them. There are 2012 releases by CollectA, Mojo and Papo that I still cannot get my hands on. The anticipation of collecting is important, of course; but this is getting a little ridiculous.

Thanks so much for sharing the Safari 2013' link! After viewing them, looks like the Wildlife Wonders Cheetah will be my only purchase of the 2013' assortment. I don't collect Dragons, but the Twilight dragon is nice.
The Incredible Creatures baby veiled chameleon looks good as well as the Gastornis from their Prehistoric line(But won't purchase). White lions, and black wolf repaints stink... I'm just thankful they did at LEAST ONE Wildlife Wonders.

I MUST have the cheetah cheers

Anyway, perhaps these large models will be expensive collector`s items in 10 years or so.
Just look at the Vanishing Wild drunken

I really like the new Panda and sunfish. The stand is a good idea too. However the humpback whale looks terrible. I was hoping for new sea life, as it seems this area has been neglected over the last few years, hopefully the sunfish shows there is hope for the coming years, does anyone have a copy of the bowhead whale as I didn't get a chance to see it before it was taken down.

Only the gnu look interesting to me!

Wolverine, Elk & Fennec fox needs to be seen in real.

Elk- I found the legs are two thick.

Robert, I'm glad you pointed this out because--and I'm very embarrassed to admit this--I did not notice that the cheetah was part of the Wildlife Wonders series (despite the fact that it says 'Wildlife Wonders' in gigantic green letters on that page). With the exception of the African Elephant, I haven't been collecting the WW series (partly because of the large size). But of course those figures are meant to be larger and it is a great series.

Now the cheetah seems almost a bit small.

I am not a collector of the Wildlife Wonders but that cheetah looks fantastic! I also like the fennec fox and the blue wildebeest. I am suprised that Safari specified the model...and it does look like a blue wildebeest vs Schleich brown, white beared gnu. I thought there would be a littel more new models in the wildlife collection.

Again, I'm thankful they did at least one new Wildlife Wonders "Cheetah", but I feel they are missing the boat with not doing a few more figures a year for this wonderful line! As I mentioned before(And some fellow collectors agreed on the forum) a Wildlife Wonders version of their Wildlife series Indian rhino would have been a stunning creation!

I must comment it again to say that although I always expect some more from this great brand and sometimes I look some disappointed, the fact is that I appreciate the educational focus that this brand introduce in their range. Animal series are pure Science and not fantasy! cheers
if collector life was not so hard sometimes I would feel tempted of collecting the IC figures in 1:1 scale. It would be very nice to have a little collection of small animals in their real sizes! Very Happy
Also the life cycles and hatchling figures are clearly educational figures and a fantastic way to children learn with their toys. Chickens are not from supermarkets, isn't it? Wink
Also among not animal figures it is interesting to see some important monuments in little scale and even the solar system is interesting. Very Happy
... and thanks Safari for launching a species of the top of my wish list... the Fennec fox! cheers Very Happy Very Happy

As I love wolverines, it wouldn't be a problem seeing Papo releasing one. Indeed, wolverines and honey badgers are creatures with a warrior style, so they fit with Papo.
I would love not a warrior but a walking one but with this much more legant pose. Very Happy

But, as squirrel and fox are getting old and probably one of them will be descontinued, my suggestion for a small mammal would be an European marbled polecate

I thought maybe they're only revealing one Carnegie for now, and then maybe in a few months, we'll get a few more? At least that's what I'm hoping for... And that Concavenator isn't great... It looks like they took the Cryolophosaurus and Giganotosaurus and just combined the two, and added the 'lump' on the back.

It looks like I'll have a lot to get. I probably want the Gastornis/Diatryma the most, even though it's not as impressive as it should be. I'll likely get the Diabloceratops too... Even the Halloween & Christmas Toobs will probably find their way into my collection. The Dimorphodon looks like it needs a repaint... They should have done the snout up like a puffin or something. I was also hoping for a sequel to the dino skulls Toob Sad The Fennec Fox is on my list - though I'm noticing a trend here - great choices in species, but the sculpts/paints aren't that great.

WILDEBEEST!! cheers cheers bounce bounce bounce oh, I love this one and that calf too! This wildebeest calf is much better than Schleich retired one :) These twoo are definitelly on my wishlist :) Also elk and that wonderful WW cheetah :)
Black percheron is waste of new item and I don´t get why is palomino foal so white. But lipizzaner stallion is great :)

I read this topic for a long time now without posting... You know I like very much SAFARI Ltd spirit. Despite bad paintings, SAFARI ltd is a very innovative company with a wide range of animals, the biggest range among occidental companies. I like a lot most of their sculpting because IMHO SAFARI Ltd care about realism and accuracy, more than SCHLEICH, PAPO or BULLY... I will not speak about COLLECTA or MOJÖ because MOJÖ is a very young company and COLLECTA changed a lot in 2012 and I need to see 2013 to have a more precise idea. Of course I have great hopes about COLLECTA and MOJÖ. Wink

2013 seems more promising for me than 2012. Not the best year but at least I have more pics of models I wish to collect than this year.
Of course there are some very boring things, for me, like the repainted lions, wolves and foxes.

The sea line have a very good addition with the not too big sunfish and a very bad one with the humpback whale, so far from the sumptuous Carnegie model. What a Face
The gnu and calf are not a revelation like the PAPO or the COLLECTA white-tailed one but they can reach the herd.
The fennec is a new specie at last, even if it looks big and toyish on the pic. We will see because maybe the sculpting will be finer on real model.
The Wolverine pose is interesting and will join the family… If PAPO and COLLECTA would make one, wolverine will soon be a very common Toy specie.
The Elk is ok for me, far better than the previous one and still the best elk on market.
The Eastern Screech owl is a little bit big for me and not better than the KAIYODO, but I appreciate to see a less common specie on the market.

I will go for the Gastornis and dimorphodon and forget the repainted ancient brachio (what an idea Rolling Eyes )
The diabloceratops… Maybe…

Cheetah: Great and BIG. If I find enough place, I still have to buy the WW hippo and Baribal.

The toobs ? bof bof bof. I don't know for the birds, I will need closer pics.
The Cambrian toob is a big disappointment. As an extinct species collector, I really wanted this kind of stuff. But no, the colors are so poor, so toyish on the pics. Look at that anomalocaris No . I understand a toob need to be cheap and SAFARI can't reach the level of KAIYODO Cambrian species but we are far here from a decent level. I hope the Miami company will change this.
About the toobs, it is impressive to see how some are big hits and some are completely missed.

Safari Ltd in its facebook page:

"Humpback is an updated model since other whale was not accurate per experts. Bowhead coming soon "

maybe in the release doc are not all models? or will be in 2014? scratch scratch

Safari toobs often contain pleasant surprises - very nice small animals that look good near other brands larger species and can become little gems of a display or diorama.
My favorite toob is Exotic Birds Toob with such species as Quetzal and Colibri. Hopefully, Backyard Birds will compete for the first place! :)

I Totally agree with you: Safari toobs can bring pleasant surprises. The quetzal is, by far, my favorite. I got excited with the backyard birds as well!

There's a few new Safari Ltd models I'm looking forward to. The wolverine, of course! Also the black wolf and black fox. I realize they are simply re-paints, but I love wild canids, so yays! Can't wait for the Townsend's big-eared bat and the Eastern screech owl. I even like the "Halloween Tube" (it has a black cat!) and, of course, the backyard birds are a must! The minis, dragons, and glow-in-the-darks will have to wait and see for now. I don't know.

i love weasels cheers they are my favorite. Very Happy i would love for Safari to make one. the wolverine will be a nice one to have even though there are a few others out there..... if you love mustelidae like me there is a topic in the "Show us yours" section to post your weasel family models. and welcome to the forum! cheers

I´ll get at least 2 models: the black pegasus and the foal. The other 2 new horse molds look awesome too! And I also like the Percheron. I´m not sure if I will be able to resist them!

This Weedy Seadragon is listed as "new" on Safari's new website:

How is that? This exact figure is sitting on a shelf behind me. Same figure, same color scheme.
