Yes, Sue the T-rex has friends, too ! alien alien alien alien
This one and a torosaurus.
Also a toob which was retired, but a new toob is being launched this year.
I have a key-chain with Sue`s scull.
Sue came with both open and closed mouth.
Perhaps there are more ? study

I am especially thrilled about Sue. I had the pleasure to visit the Field Museum about 25 years ago , but then there were no Safari models farao Laughing

What a great flea-find Very Happy

But even if Safari is not famous for great paintwork, I think they are not THAT slobby, - the mane and tail-tip are definitely home made Wink

Laughing I think I understand! I wanted a lot a VW figure and foudn the chance with Yvett and got a jaguar. I was really prepared to receive a large figure but it was much larger than I ever expected. I believe this lion is somewhat larger. Well, interesting that it was found in Serbia and it has a darker mane. Very Happy

But a very NICE, big toy ! I like him ! cheers

Recently we had a question, if the value would go down if somebody made "touch-up" on a model.
This may be a good example. The lion if perfectly fine, but it is no longer the original model . cat Neutral cat

PostSubject: help Safari Ltd Coyote and the Safari Ltd African Wild Dog    Sun Mar 03, 2013 2:11 am

Hello everyone from S.T.S
I have a few questions and help if possible I’m thinking of adding a few new animals to my collections and I’m looking at the
Safari Ltd Coyote and the Safari Ltd African Wild Dog I was wondering if anyone has these items, and what they think? also I’m going to order them on line and before I do so I was hoping I could get some of you to post some pictures of your figures, and if they could also picture them with some of their other animals so I can get an idea of the size of the figures in contrast other Figures
The catalog pictures make the coloring and markings look amazing on the Safari Ltd Coyote and the Safari Ltd African Wild Dog but I’m worried that in person they are less appealing ?

Thank you for your help
Mark

PostSubject: Re: Questions about Safari Ltd   Sun Mar 03, 2013 5:16 am

I don't have pictures immediately on hand, but I think the Safari African Dog is excellent. (I also really like the Coyote.) With Safari, almost none of their models are particularly well painted. That seems to me to be a well-accepted drawback of the Safari models. There isn't a lot of shading in the painting (the sort of shading that Schleich does particularly well) and the paint often seems slapped on.

However, I always thought that in the case of the African Wild Dog, Safari's style of painting served the model really well. In this case, rather than blending from one color to another, getting a realistic-looking effect requires block colors with harder edges between the different shades, and this is exactly what Safari does. So my own opinion is that the Safari African Wild Dog is excellent and very much worth getting. (As much as I like the Mojo, I like the Safari better.)

In the case of the Coyote, the paintwork isn't fantastic, but it isn't awful, and the sculpt is excellent.

I have to say ditto to Scott. Both sculpts are really good, but the painting with Safari models is not the greatest. The Wild dog however does look good with this very contrasting, strong bordered colors. But I think sometimes it depends on the collector's taste. In Mojo's case with their wild dog, I just would have wanted more spots on it, and not so much of one color on each side, (mostly black etc.) But that is just my opinion.

I do not own the African wild dog, however, I DO own Old Man Coyote and his Little Pup, and they are some of the finest animal replicas Safari has ever produced, in my opinion. The coyotes are, literally, my favorite Safari replicas, hands down, as I've taken care to mention to Safari themselves. The sculpts and the painting are exacting and beautiful. I collect many, many animals from many different brands, but I take a keen interest in predators and animals from the North American deserts. Since coyotes are one of the most widely distributed mammals in the US (we have them roaming just a block from where I live!) and they also inhabit the dry Southwestern deserts and scublands of the West, I was so excited when Safari announced these little beauties!

Buy them, Mdasilva, you'll not regret it! Very Happy Very Happy

I just love them! Papo is known of being the best with big cats, it would be fair if Safari was known of being the best with "big dogs". As Scott correctly pointed, Safari painting style, usually not very appealing, works perfectly in the African painted dog, also it has a terrific sculpting. The coyot is also just excelent, sculpting is near perfect and painting has all markings typical to the species. Don't forget the Arctic wolf, beautiful pose and sculpting too. Even the grey wolves look great although I don't have them. None of them is too large and
You can find pictures of them browsing in Safari section of our forum. Very Happy

I have both and the detail and paint jobs are great! I do not find Safari great with painting detail but the wild dog is excellent--better than the mojo wild dog. Very detailed. I would suggest both.

PostSubject: What is up with Safari Ltd's paints?! D:<   Tue Jul 23, 2013 11:11 pm

What is wrong with Safari Ltd?! I know! I just ordered the whales and dolphins toob last week because I thought they'd be nice additions for my collection and I lost all the dolphins to the set when I was little and thought it'd be nice to get my hands on them again.I have owned the set for 10 years.All the whales,and dolphins from the first set of it I bought are still in pristine condition.The toob arrived today and all the dolphins and whales looked chewed up.The toob arrived dented.I threw the chewed up ones in the bin and took my older ones out because their paint is so much better.Safari's paint jobs have really declined in the last few years.I know 2014 for me is touch up year and I will be touching up some of my figures.But these,ugh idk.I will tell you now,the set was not USED! I almost never buy used animals.

Do you know how old the toob is ? How was it closed ? The newer ones have a sort of clock-lock, while the older ones were closed twith sticky tape, I think scratch

If you bought from Amazon raise a help query against this order and they will immediately send you a replacement and ask you to return the 'damaged' goods to them via a freepost method. DO IT because I have done this in the past. Raise it as a damaged goods query. Does nopt matter if packaging is thrown away or some models, what you have left send it back via their freepost method. You could have picked a badly damaged package or one that was a possible previous returned. Let them send you another.

I have the pacific white sided dolphin, I recommend it as a model. As a kid it was my absolute favorite dolphin figure I had, because it was so different from the typical gray bottlenoses.

Thanks, Colorata would be my favorite but a little searching on EBAY gives me a result of a 13 Euros figure and without shipping included. It is a shame that these lovely little Colorata are all so hard to find and expensive. Sad I really like them. Who knows, someday, Japanese brands start selling on Europe but chances are low. study
It looks also that there is no toys about Atlantic white-sided dolphins but as far as toy industry is going, it is a question of time, I hope. bounce

That is an interesting thought, so many dolphin species, most even more beautiful than bottlenoses, and almost always brands make the same. flower
Companies should read your testimony when you were a child. After all, kids taste is not so linear. cheers

I just liked it because like I said, it was different. It had cool stripes and it was just different. Very Happy

This is now being listed as a Common Dolphin. I suppose it could pass as one, but it really is better as an Atlantic White-sided Dolphin; however, the pectoral fins should be black (they used to be, but apparently not anymore), and the area that is tan now should be grey, while the white "comet" should be tan. But it's the closest anyone's come yet. It was never sold as an Atlantic White-sided Dolphin officially, though, so perhaps they never actually were going for that.

Does anybody know it ? Shocked 

I am sure it is from Safari, but have never seen it before, and it is not in the 1994 dealer's catalogue...there is a mighty gap in my catalogues, my next one after 1994 is 2003 What a Face
