I read some of the discussion about the projected Carnegie Tyrannosaurus over at the Dinotoyblog forum. Most members there seem pretty down on the model, but I have to say that, at least from the one picture we have available, I love it! I do wish that their Theropods were not in tripod stance, but I understand the difficulties and I do appreciate that sculptor, despite having the tail touch the ground, doesn't give them a "tail-dragging" posture. Other than the Kinto/Favorite T-rex's, this has the potential to be one of my very favorites.

I am guessing that Safari will produce a snow leopard for the wildlife wonders series. it only makes sense. Very Happy Idea 
They may do a snow leopard. I hope they do :) But there are still a number of animals they could make that would certainly fit the "Wildlife Wonders" bill.

They have yet to do a Jaguar, Leopard(other that the black leopard), Grizzly Bear, Cougar, Chimpanzee or Kangaroo. Personally, I'd love to see them do a Mandrill, though I'm afraid they probably won't. It's got to be the most iconic face in the whole animal kingdom! They may eventually do a Moose or an American Bison. Maybe even a Camel or Ostrich. But my guess is that we'll either see a Snow Leopard, Chimpanzee, Grizzly Bear or Kangaroo. I guess we'll know soon enough!

It's a Black Jaguar in Wildlife Wonders. They have yet to do any form of Leopard.

Not to sound like I'm complaining, but I can understand Safari making a T-rex for their 25th Anniversary with the Carnegie, but how many T-rex's do we need between the Carnegie and Wild Safari collections? The Carnegie will now have three and the Wild Safari currently has three if you don't count the baby. I just don't think more than at least 2 are needed.

I was hoping that maybe they would release something for their anniversary with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Apparently that's not up to Safari to decide. The Monterey Bay Aquarium decides what, if any, figures get released into or retired out of the collection. Safari works pretty closely with MBA, though, so they never rule out additions to the MBA collection, and I think they did want to do something for the anniversary, but that doesn't mean that MBA wants to.

This year's lineup has some nice Sealife additions, though, some have been leaked, others, not. king

Yes I do know that. I would think MBA would want to add a new figure, especially since most collectors already have what's in the collection plus retired items. I'm hoping the new un-leaked sealife additions aren't something we've already seen.

Eh, thanks Takama! This is what I call a balanced range mixing very common animals with some very good surprises. I think Wings of the World with anhinga and raven, North American with pecary and gilla monster dinos and sealife are very good. For wildlife I only hope they are good as previous Indian rhino, mainly if the black rhino keeps their good tradition of making good rhinos.

That's exciting! I like the wolf and the bison a lot, amongst others. Great news though! Very Happy
ok, here are my initial thoughts on the figures I am interested in:

The horses aren't my cup of tea (mustangs don'ts usually have curly manes etc. and they are repaints of the Palomino mare, the appaloosa mare and the Arabian which is disappointing.)

The Brahma bull is a reissued mold isn't it? But since I missed it the first time around I will probably get this time.

The Dachshund and the Yorkie are cute though I would have left the yorkie's ear hair alone instead of coloring it black (that looks a little funny.)

The rhino has a nice pose but looks like it has a weird texture, though that could just be the pic.

The Cryptid toob is awesome, though Ceolocanths are still alive, not cryptids.

The panda looks like the WW one.

I was very surprised that the bison is a new mold, though does this mean that the normal one will be discontinued?

The Gila monster is pretty neat.

The hippo is long overdue for a remake.

The Peccary is a total surprise figure, very happy about that one.

And the black wolf is kind neat even if it is just a repaint.

And those are my opinions. So far this year, its looking pretty good. Very Happy

Just a quick question, the older hippo is an old figure. Does anyone know when it was released? I'm curious to know if it beat the previous Schleich hippo with years on the market. This older hippo from Safari was on the market for a looooooong time.

Thanks for the information. The most unusual animals - and the best - are the peccary and the anhinga. Most models are nice but rather as usual, but that´s only my opinion.Wink

Thanks Martin for merging the pictures. Very Happy
I agree it is disapointing mainly to someone that collect Wonders. I know some people only bought these larger and more expensive figures because they're not available in smaller size.
I would also appreciate better if these moulds were new, but being mostly common figures and generally very good replicas, I am glad I'll have the chance of having them in smaller size. I like this black rhino for instance.
It is not a very exciting list of releases, repaintings and reused moulds are excessively used.
Though, the few really good news are excelent and offer a a larger diversity then what we often see in brands like Schleich, Papo or Bullyland.
Sealife is very interesting, dinosaurs too. Wings of the World much better than last year and North America very good too.
Wonders, farm and the lack of a real new on wildlife are the minus of 2014 offer in my opinion. Very Happy

The only ones I know are dodo bird, humboldt penguin (Incredible Creatures) and orangutan male (Wild Safari Wildlife) It must be not complete for sure. :)

For me the rhino doesn't look too nice (something strange in him), however hippo is pretty fine  Very Happy Smile  I also like panda, good pose and proportions but I'm afraid painting is really "Safarish"
I'm really happy to see the raven is super nicely sculpted Very Happy Anhinga looks very nice (little too big feet but still acceptable I think) Peccary is maybe too much in shape of European wild boar. I feel like lower jaw is too big and too much "mane" was not necessary (I don't mention legs because it's more about production process, not really their fault) But OK it's first peccary on the market, will be on my list anyway.  Smile

Yes, mini cardinal looks super cute, I wonder how many is in the set? Very Happy

I'm VERY disappointed with Winners Circle - there's not even one new mould! Only colour variants :/ I know there will be people happy with them, but I'm a "mould" person, not a "colour variant" person...

I love IC hedgehog and piglet! Simply adorable!

I also love WOW Anhinga, it's sculpture looks amazing.
But the raven could be a lot better - those feathers look more like scales (IC Screech owl also had these - that's the only reason I didn't buy it)...

And I absolutely ADORE [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]! He's cute, though I haven't heard of six-legged Eastern dragon (who knows, maybe there's such dragon in Eastern mythology). I'm buying him for sure!

Generally, I'm not impressed, lots of recolours, most of new moulds is just "meh" for me - Safari can do better, I think. Or maybe it's just me getting very choosy and grumpy Laughing

Wow thanks for sharing these! I love when we get to see the next years releases from the brand--exciting. I agree with Anna that the rhino is kinda weird looking--it may be its facial expression--but I like his running stance. The hippo is a long awaited surprise. Much better color however still another hippo with his mouth wide open. I like the Mojo one because its mouth is not open. I like the chimp minis. Safari seems to be creating species that are not well known, which is good.

The Rhino got a smiling face, perhaps can fine tune it. Looking forward for Hippo!

Thanks for sharing

Thank you for sharing cheers 

As a horse person, I'm not impressed, and one is just a repaint of the palomino, which I think has better colour design already.

Neverteless, looks good for the wildlife cat 

And an Ikarus figurine - nice Wink

So, now that I have had some time to look at things some more, I realize that a few of the figures are copies. All of this is just my opinion, and I understand that they can save money etc by reusing figures, but really? half of their "regular" sized range is just repaints and smaller versions of things. As mentioned before, I will probably get the brahma because I missed it the first time it was out, the rhino isn't a total copy of the WW one but there are only minor differences and yes, it looks funny to me too. I won't get the pandas since I have seen better, the hippo I actually like even if it is a copy since their older one was well... old. I don't usually collect their horses (due to every collector has to pick and choose their battles etc) but I am disappointed that they were so lazy and did not come out with a single new mold this year. I do like their releases overall, I just wish that they could try to be a little more creative... :)

These are the ones that I'll surely buy:

688904 Cryptozoology Designer Toob
687804 Cave Dwellers Toob
688104 Deep Sea Creatures Toob
688804 Seashells Toob
302729 Pachyrhinosaurus
302929 Suchomimus
303429 Ammonite
180629 Peccary
180729 Gila Monster
180929 White Buffalo
150129 Anhinga
150829 Raven

And a few comments on 2014 Safari Ltd. line:

In general, I like the 2014 line most of the 2013 one.
As already mentioned, there are very common animals along with some surprise.
The Carnegie Tyrannosaurus is definitely one of the best currently available (excluding Japan ones, of course Cool), but I don't really like it... the tail looks too thin and short, and the legs have a columnar shape. And then, why no feathers?! Shocked
I really like the other prehistoric animals, especially Suchomimus and Ammonite, but I don't understand the choice of Megalodon... it looks exactly the same as a normal Great White Shark, and it's not even the best that Safari released.
The WW Black Wolf is a real disappointment. Why spoil a beautiful line with a repaint? I find it a bit a punch in the eye of the line. Safari is a bit too far with white/black repaints, middle of the last year line were re-painted animals!
Wild animals don't impress me. A few releases as usual in recent years, and this time are really well-known species. The Black Rhino looks really weird, I don't like it at all. Hippo and Pandas are cute, even if they are equal to WW ones. I've never really excited when I see released so common species, there are already so many good of them out there and I don't see need to release others.
Marine animals are good, even if Bowhead Whale will have a great rival in CollectA one. Pilot Whale is pretty, but CollectA one beat it.
The American animals are a great surprise, I love them. Also the White Buffalo is on my wish list, it's very cheering that he's a resculpt and not a repaint. Very Happy
Even the birds are great.
Now, the part that I enjoy most every year are the toobs. This year they are very interesting: the abyssal creatures are magnificent, and also the cave animals. I didn't understand, however, why they are colored in that strange way... or is it their true color? Suspect The cryptozoology creatures disappointed me a lot. There were so many beautiful creatures that they could have chosen, as the Chupacabras, marmaids, Montauk's Monster and many others, and instead chose two clearly fake animals, two almost equal to each other, one existing animal and the others are not very beautiful. The Kraken is really bad, I would have preferred a small copy of their Giant Squid. The only one that I really like is the coelacanth, that is not a cryptid creature.
In any case, I tried to explain in particular the negative aspects, but I'm very happy with this line. Wink
cheers

I think the hedgehog is an African Hedgehog if I am not mistaken.

Am i the only one uber-excited about the Jackalope in the crypto toob? Whoo hoo! And before anyone wonders whether they are cryptids: they were, but obviously turned out to be a hoax.

Creature living deep in caves live in complete darkness, so they don't need colours, as they wouldn't see them anyway - that's why they usually have no (or very tiny) eyes and no (or veeery little) pigment e:)I think it's also a way of saving energy which isn't wasted on production of unnecessary pigment.

I have a mostly same criticisms and compliments that others have already made (more effectively) above. As Paige and Sommo have pointed out, it's really too bad they are recycling some of the same sculpts. That's pretty uninspired to those of us who are collectors. I also agree that the Megalodon seems like a waste. (Unless it's the length of my arm...but even then.) I'll get the Dachshund, since they are my favorite dogs, but it is not wowing me. I would have loved to have seen a really impressive dachshund. So that's a missed opportunity. The Rhino is just weird and the Panda and Hippo leave me cold.

Things I like: As I already mentioned, I love the Carnegie Tyrannosaurus.

The birds are great. I like both the Raven and the Anhinga especially. The Peccary and the White Buffalo are really lovely. (I'd almost prefer they paint the Buffalo normally as well, but the white version looks great.) Although the Wild Safari Dinosaurs aren't blowing me away (I really loved the Gryposaurus and Dimorphodon from this year), they look good. And that's about it for me.

As Yvette and Anna wrote above, it seems like the Anhinga and the Peccary are the best. So for me, I will get the Anhinga, Raven, Peccary, Buffalo, and Tyrannosaurus, for sure. I am very excited about those models!

The "smaller wildlife wonders" panda is still the best panda sculpt around. Peccary and piranha might be great. The sealife creatures and the gila look cheap. Medieval raven sculpt looks like made of stone. The toobs are great! i LOVe the mosquito life cycle, the cave dwellers are a must-have, same with the bigfoot club and the deep sea creatures. The finch is a good one as well.

I like those new dogs. Dachshund and Yorkie are not so uncommon breeds but at least they are new sculpts not repaints. I'll buy them for sure Very Happy

I bet they probably made a Megalodon because of the popular TV series on Discovery Channel "Shark Week" this past summer. They had a special on Megalodon, and yes it is basically a HUGE great white. I hope they made it a larger model at the very least. Otherwise, it was a tiny bit of a wasted effort.

They apparently made it by request, regardless of the Discovery Channel special. At least that's my understanding.
