Default My Newly Acquired Safari Animals !!!

Guys , I had a great opportunity to buy loads of brilliant safari figurines in my tours this year .

No doubt , SAFARI is going to be the front most animal figurines producer very shortly [ no wonder over coming schleich perhaps ] when I look at their HUGE RANGE OF RARE ANIMALS [ Pangolin , Armadillo , Flying squirrel etc etc. ] , BRILLIANT SCULPTS and SOLID SCALES for display in collections .

Here are some pics. of my Safari stuffs ..... I have taken maximum angles of each figurine as I was totally engrossed in their details and accuracy as COLLECTORS' ITEMS .

First , The flying squirrel and Pangolin - awesome details ..... especially of the prominences of the squirrel 's body with the merged flying flap either sides , Pangolin 's layered skin surface .

To me , the best FREISIAN STALLION is the safari's [ with the schleich's retired Freisian stallion ]. What a chiselled sculpt ? It's fabulous - the wavy manes and thick tail , macho look and perfect depiction of the musculo skeletal system . A master piece of safari . Thank God I got this as brand new stuff .

Welcome back, Doc. Glad you are back!

Congrats to your newest additions. I am also collecting Safari Ltd's figures now. But I am only serious about their Wing of the Worlds. I strongly believe they are the best in making birds.

Well done Doc.

The horse is stunning I agree.

I also think that armadillo is brilliant and really well made, unfortunately it is not in the exact Schleich scale which is a shame!
