I am sorta disappointed with the prehistoric items for this year.Only large animals which I don't like too much. Sad The only satisfying toob is perhaps the deep sea toob.

Yes, I have a similar question QuollMate, does anyone know what the furry looking white fish in the Cryptids toob is?

Ah, that'd be the legendary "furred trout" from the American north, if
memory serves. Unlike the giant squid and the coelocanth, the "furred trout" has never bern proven or caught...yet.

PostSubject: Disappointed with Safari Ltd 2014 at all?    Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:38 am

I am somewhat disappointed,but I think it is more me than the company itself.Safari's figures for the following year look good,but I am disappointed because they haven't really made any figures within my region.Meaning,not a lot of interesting things for my collections.I collect prehistoric,birds,and sea life.I might only buy the sea she'll toob for decorative purposes on my coral reef,and I will also buy the deep sea toob.I have taken he cryptids toob into consideration because it contains a Loch Ness and coelocanth which I could use for my prehistoric collection.As for birds,if the wings of the world and that new colorful finch are small enough,I will add those to my birds collection.If anyone can provide me with sizes of the new birds,I will be grateful.I have also taken collecting the Wings of the World series into consideration,most of their birds are small enough.If anyone could provide me photos of the WotW complete series,I would like that as well.I want to collect some of their smaller birds.

Emma, honestly and although you explain, I can't understand why you're disappointed with Safari 2014 line. Of course I respect your oppinion and you are the only person that knows your real wishes and expectations.
So see! Prehistorics you have the Carnegie T-Rex, Evolution of Man, Monolophosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Suchomimus, Megalodon and Ammonite.
From sea life and fishes the deep sea, Cave Dwellers, Seashells and Cryptozoology toobs, IC piranha and the two prehistoric sea animals previously listed, the Dolphin, thresher shark, jellyfish , bowhead whale and pilot whale,
Birds you have IC gouldian finch, anhinga and raven and all of this not counting with good luck minis.
I doubt any other brand will give you as much as Safari is. scratch Very Happy
Of course Incredible Creatures are large figures, they use to be. So Piranha and finch will be surely large for you.
About pictures of the wonderful WOW series from Safari you have the following link of Toy Animal Enclyclopedia
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and a fantastic topic, also with Susanne's pictures about the line.

Safari says on their Facebook page that the species are: Hatchet Fish, Angler Fish, Viper Fish, Glass Squid, Giant Isopod, Gulper Eel and Black Dragonfish


Bryan - thanks for the video! Now that I see the pilot whale at a different angle, it doesn't look so bad. I still say the color is off and the markings that I mentioned before should be added. I really want to know what species the dolphin is and if it's taking the place of the current Wild Safari Sealife dolphin. Any ideas on what's being retired next year?

They look good! Definitely want that hedgehog, black wolf, dragon minis, and peccary. Might have to buy three of the peccary and start up my own herd! :)

I'm glad to see the peccary/javelina, too!

I couldn't help but laugh a little bit when I saw the cryptozoology tube, but the more I think about it, the more I think it would be fun to see a few of those critters in the full-sized Safari line.

Disappointing as it may be to see so many repaints and resizes, I think they look pretty good. The pandas really do look like an improvement over their predecessors, and I really like the white bison.

Ooh-i'll be looking forward to the new black wolf,even if it is just a re-color. Maybe they will come out with a white wolf to match it next year?

Thanks Orcagirl, I was also interested in knowing. :)
It looks according with your judgement of the figure that it doesn't match very well a bottlenose dolphin, I suppose the common. Though there is some variation between individuals and it makes me really unsuccessful identifying them. Very Happy

I apologize, I only saw this now Embarassed But you're welcome :) To me, it looks like a spinner dolphin. I don't know why Safari would release another bottlenose dolphin scratch It seems as if they are too afraid to release a different species for fear that it won't sell. But you never know unless you try.

Re: the dolphin - I've seen it, held it in my hands. All but played with it. It's not a Bottlenose, regardless of what the company says. Beak is most similar to a Clymene or Striped Dolphin, but dorsal fin sits very far forward & tail flukes are very large -perhaps even disproportionately so. But from the front, it looks good for a generic Stenella sp.

If it's a clyme or a striped dolphin then I feel Safari should label it that and not just "dolphin". Either way, I'll be adding it to my collection and just have it as a non-bottlenose dolphin.

I received the 2014 catalog in the mail today. Very nice. It's clear they are being conservative with the larger animals, but they do take some risks with the toob animals the make. Some fun and interesting species there.

Tierman is right Safari does take a faithful leap every year so it's pretty good for me as a all out small animal collector.

I don't know why Safari would release another bottlenose dolphin scratch It seems as if they are too afraid to release a different species for fear that it won't sell. But you never know unless you try.
You don't need to apologize, there is always a lot of topics to watch and sometimes we take longer to check a certain post and even sometimes we loose it. Very Happy
Choosing unusual species that bear similarities to a common species is never a risk in terms of sales.
A North African hedgehog doesn't sell less than a European hedgehog. Children will just buy it as a hedgehog.
The same with some dolphin species, if there isn't a evident coloring difference, it will sell generically as a dolphin. That is one of the few aspects where Schleich is being interesting these last years, they released an African hedgehog, mountain hare and an African penguin because they work easily as generically recognizable animals. :)

Thanks Orcagirl, I was also interested in knowing. :)

I agree with Roger, animals have variations in body structure, just humans. However, I also agree with Orcagirl26, the proportions seem extremely odd and exaggerated for this particular figure. scratch

The black wolf looks like a simple repaint and the black rhino legs are way out of proportion, too bad.

I received the 2014 catalog in the mail today. Very nice. It's clear they are being conservative with the larger animals, but they do take some risks with the toob animals the make. Some fun and interesting species there.
I agree for toobs Tim. However, even if Safari Ltd was more inventive in the past I can see some new things this year: A bowhead whale, a peccary, an anhinga, a Gila monster and a Gouldian finch. The last peccary I can remembered is the STARLUX...
Even the crow, jellyfish, Pilot whale, Thresher shark are not common in the toy market.

About the Panda and hippo WW bonzaïs, It was a very common collectors' wish in the past, it means Safari Ltd is listening Wink 

I think we are expecting more good things from this big brand and I guess the CollectA wave of 2013 is in everyone's mind.

I'm not the biggest Safari fan, but they make some of the best rhino figures out there. The hippo and peccary look pretty good, too.

WHY does the cryptozoology toob contain a coelacanth (that we KNOW exists) and a jackalope (that we know DOES NOT exist)?? I thought cryptozoology creatures were animals that we are unsure of whether they exist or not?

With that aside, I do want that cute little coelacanth. I have Safari's bigger coelacanth model and I love it!

The Coelacanth is a well-known cryptid that was found to actually exist. The Jackalope was originally a hoax that was believed by many to be real, until the hoax was proven. Much like selling narwhal tusks as unicorn horns for outrageous prices, unscrupulous "businessmen" would taxidermy "Jackalopes" and sell them as oddities for pretty decent prices.

The Coelacanth and the Jackalope actually do a good job of representing the full spectrum of Cryptid possibilities: some prove to be hoaxes, others actually exist. The goal of Cryptozoologists is to determine which are which; to debunk myths and bring actual, biological specimens to the attention of science.

It's ok it doesn't matter because we all love the coelocanth!

Actually, it has been determined that the Jackalope does exist to an extant. There is a disease running around the south west deserts right now in cottontail populations that causes them to grow darkly colored calcium (I think its calcium scratch ) deposits on their faces and head. It gives them the appearance of horns, which may the myth behind the Jackalope in the West stories. Try googling Jackalope and sift through the pics of doctored and/or taxidermist renditions of the Jackalope for weird rabbits with growths on their faces. It's quite scary and weird at the same time.

I've read that same information too. After that I never liked the Jackalopes (you know, when people create their original characters and stuff).


And as for the new figures, the only figure I really want is the black wolf. If it's the same scale as other Safari/Schleich wolves (and not the VW scale).

I also like the good luck dragon, because it's clearly inspired by Falcor from the Neverending Story! Though it has too many legs, but.. :D

If you look at the full 2014 catalog (other link), they updated the color to the former female hippo and calf--they are now more realistic in terms of color, vs the battleship gray! Applause They match the new male hippo.

Oddly, Safari has already released some of their 2014 figures. I received the Raven and the Suchomimus recently (I ordered them straight from Safari Ltd in Florida.) I haven't yet taken pictures of the Suchomimus, but I was especially smitten with the Raven. I thought it was better in person than it appeared in the stock photos.

H and H Winner's Circle has the new 2014 releases and a few sellers on eBay have them too.
