I need to revisit the 2017 releases, but I think the Safari IC Spider Monkey should probably be in the mix. 2017 was an incredible year for Safari.

Oh, the CollectA Cameroon sailfin chameleon was pretty sweet. So were the Safari nudibranch and squirrel monkey.

Yes, sorry, I meant Safari squirrel monkey, not spider monkey (above).

I didn't give the nudibranch much weight since it's generic and not sure what species, if any, it is modeled after.

Updated! I'm liking the mixture so far. I've also thrown the Papo Walrus into the ring.

One more contender and we'll have a top ten - we won't need a poll then.  :P ;)

Nah, I reckon we can get up to 20 or so contenders before I set up the poll.

Was the Kaiyodo Bird Garden set 2016 or 2017? That's another 4 species (albeit 3 sculpts).
Upcoming start-up figurine line, feedback wanted: http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1991.new#new

I can't find them listed in either the 2016 or 2017 "New for" sections. A forum search didn't yield any results either. Have they been discussed on the forum anywhere?

It was a 2017 set. Even though the caiques are separate subspecies I wouldn't include both of them, but I would include both the blue and gold and rainbow macaws.

*edit*
The Kitan club Japanese common toad and Safari reef squid warrant inclusion.
