They have also announced a reissue of the IC pangolin and an albino Burmese python but I don't have pics (only seen Youtube videos).

Thanks, I'm adding them to the first post.

A chinchilla has been added to the IC line (looks good, from what I can tell). There is a video on STS forum, so I assume it's on Youtube.

Also a grizzly/brown bear for the Wildlife Wonders line and a new color of a bulldog breed? This is from videos and chatter on STS forum. I don't do social media so I am not sure what else has been revealed in this arena.

Agh, I need to update the post, but the way they are revealing this year make it so difficult. I do social media but only to dip in and out, so I miss a lot of things.

Remember when they would just release a catalogue?  :))

I'm super excited for the Pelagic Fish Toob! I was wishing for a "sport fish" Toob almost exactly like this in the forums just last year! I'm particularly pleased with the inclusion of the sword and sailfish, as well as the tuna. I'm a little disappointed it's so shark heavy, though. I would've preferred they nixed one of the sharks in favor of, say, a dolphin fish.

Speaking of dolphins, the new Dolphin Toob looks nice as well!

Ohhhh! All my most favourite dolphin species! The shame is that if they are a toob they will be too small for my collection :-(

Sorry I haven't kept this topic up to date, I've been busy. Will get around to it eventually, even though the moment has passed.

The new toobs look awesome, by the way.

Wish they had included a Commersons dolphin, then it would cover a wider range of scales.

I took the initiative of editing the first post :)

Thank you! (I've been busy)

That clouded leopard (and many other of the new things) MUST be mine for this Christmas, hehehe! Any idea of sizes/scales?

For Safari, wildlife models are all about the same size, not to scale. Wildlife Wonders are larger. Safari figures are usually not to scale, at least their extant figures.

Isidro

Thanks! Clouded leopard is 12,5 cm lenght, but have a very long tail, so I suppose that can go well with my Schleich jaguar and cheetah of about same lenght (and more curled tails). Same for serval with 9,6 cm lenght and golden snub-nosed monkey with 6 cm height. These thee are the ones that I will add to my Christmas wishlist (that already is full of older models :P)

The Primate Toob by Safari for 2019 will offer 4 new species:
1. The most exciting is the bonobo, Pan paniscus.
     It will replace a porcelain figure by Little Critterz.
2. The red-handed (or Midas) tamarin, Saguinus midas.
3. The emperor tamarin, Saguinus imperator.
4. The common marmoset, Callithrix jacchus.
     A figure by Nayab looks like a black-tufted rather than a common marmoset.

The lemur called by the family name Indridae looks like the Coquerel's sifaka, Propithecus coquereli. That species was done by K&M and Play Visions (ID as Verreaux's sifaka).

I'm drooling over that dolphin TOOB!! Like others have said, I really with they were larger, not toob figures. But I'll still probably get them. I might also go for the orca and sperm whale, but from the preview photo it looks like the MBA versions are still superior in terms of anatomical accuracy. I really hate how most orca models handle the saddle patch, but this one is decent. At least it's not a barely visible featureless gray streak quickly slapped on like an afterthought.

Isidro

I never saw an orca figurine with good done saddle patch, despite being a species done lots of times by several brands. I just took my aquarell pencils and rendered my model for make the adequate shape of the saddle, you can just do the same.

DolphinsAreJerks

Seriously, why is it so hard to find an orca with a properly done saddle patch?

That dolphins TOOB is amazing! So many obscure species! And all new molds! Like others, I'd prefer larger figures, but sometimes I use the TOOB toys in crafts so maybe I can come with an excuse to get these. Or I'll just buy them and display them somehow, lol.

Ikessauro

Any info on release dates for the orca?
