Dear all

I am extremely proud to present the photo for this stunning breed of cattle -  to me it is a primitive looking bovine which can stand proudly alongside the handsome Aurochs and existing Wild buffaloes in terms of their impressive horn shapes.  I have long requested this breed to be added.

The Ankole-Watusi, also known as the Ankole Longhorn, is a breed of cattle with large, distinctive horns, originally native to Africa. Ankoles are able to utilize poor quality forage and limited quantities of food and water. These survival abilities have allowed them as a breed to not only survive the centuries in Africa but to become established in Europe, South America, Australia, and North America.

Again this is an image of the prototype in its early stage and is subject to some changes and refinement.  Enjoy!

2013 was a great year for collectors in general, a time when our wallets have been jeopardy due to some great models. But I have a feeling that 2014 might be an even better year! Thank you CollectA and I cannot wait to add these wonderful-splendid-fantastic- stupendous models to my shelves some day.Very Happy

I am glad you like this family. We will hold back on some wildlife models until later in the year but busily working on a number of species. Many of which will be on people's wish list. I cannot divulge but many of you will be surprised! Very Happy

A few days ago I wrote that COLLECTA is now the hoofed animals n°1 company. I didn't knew then I would see this new magnificent proof Applause 

I would love to find a shop in France with a real CollectA display, it would be a very nice vision. drunken 

What else ? 2013 is already a fantastic CollectA year, now we can dream of a marvelous 2014.

Thank you Numaan cheers

Hi Numaan, does Collecta have an established number of models they plan to release in 2014 and, if so, is that something you have the ability to share?

Also just curious how the revealing of next years models will unfold, seeing how they are making images available so early in the year. Will they be releasing images randomly between now and the end of the year, or will they be releasing new images on a fairly regular schedule?

Thanks for all your work on behalf of collectors Numaan! It is greatly appreciated.

Wow-very nice-so we get a second exotic domestic cattle race-great. But I ask me, why they have only one colour, this isn't the typical colour for ancole-I would like to see also a White/Brown one...

But maybe they can so also a male or female in another colour.

Does anybody know the english word for"gescheckt"?

I like them as they are, but I also think if they were more interestingly patterned, like the afore mentioned spotted or mottled, they would look even better.

I like them as they are, but I also think if they were more interestingly patterned, like the afore mentioned spotted or mottled, they would look even better.

That's excactly what I mean,single red dark Brown isn't the typical colour for them, but most Zoos only keep this colour, because they are think, patternd ancole cattle are too similar to common domestic cows...

I've seen many diffrent colour tpyes of them, but if you see Pictures of ancole cattle in africa, all the herds are mixed of diffrent colours and most of the single animals are patterend.

So I hope, Collecta is doing more than the brown ones, so they did also two colour variants of the Zebus.

Hi all

The colour will be a deep rich dark reddish/brown shade as this is the most common but I will try and see if we can at least amend the female a little. thanks

Hi Numaan, does Collecta have an established number of models they plan to release in 2014 and, if so, is that something you have the ability to share?

Also just curious how the revealing of next years models will unfold, seeing how they are making images available so early in the year. Will they be releasing images randomly between now and the end of the year, or will they be releasing new images on a fairly regular schedule?

Thanks for all your work on behalf of collectors Numaan! It is greatly appreciated.

Hello there

CollectA plan on releasing information on new releases in advance ahead of everyone else.  However the information will be released bit by bit.  Yes I do know what models are being released for 2014 but many are still being finalised and some still to be created.  Unfortunately I cannot divulge anything without express permission from CollectA.  I am working hard to ensure that many wanted species are finally brought to life however there has to be a fine balance between the wishes of collectors and those of suppliers/distributors who buy from CollectA.  Many suppliers in different countries also make requests and these have to be taken into account even if a request may be for something unexciting like another Lion, elephant or tiger. Not that there is anything wrong with these animals but of course we want to see so many other species.

The more support we have for CollectA the more they are encouraged to create diverse figures.  We need more shops to stock CollectA, more distributors to purchase and most important of all more members of the public to recognise CollectA.

thanks for all your support folks!  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Has Collecta done any request to Zoos worldwide ? Every Zoos does have a Giftshop and most of them selling also animal figures. I know, most Zooshops in Germany have only Schleich, sometimes Bullyland on Sale, but Collecta should try and ask them, if they are intersted in their products, and in thec ase of their giant dinosaur line, tehy should ask all the Stores in the Natural History Museums..

I know that the zoos in Zurich and in Basel have the big Safaris and Schleich, Zurich also have Papo animals. On the next week they open a new shop and I hope that this have some more brands bounce 
But CollectA also have an shop who sells figures in switzerland?
