The only 2013 release of Safari Ltd's Wildlife Wonders series is the Cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus (Schreber, 1775). Snout-vent length is approx. 143 mm and tail length approx. 90 mm, shoulder height is 93 mm, so the scale is approx. 1:7 - 1:10. The figure differs from previous Wildlife Wonders figures in that it is apparently the first of them which is not hollow and that is cast in a single piece. While the straight, striding pose may not be too inspiring, the details are as good as on any other Wildlife Wonders figure. Especially the head is accurately small which may look odd at first sight but indeed cheetahs have comparatively tiny heads. I've been using different backgrounds and bases here and they greatly affect how the figure's colours appear. So this may be a good example for why sometimes a figure in a walk-around may appear different from the one you have in your collection. The last photo is a size comparison with the Wildlife Wonders Lion which is about 1:10 - 1:11 scale.

From my point of view, this figure and Papo cheeta are the best figures of this animal. Thanks for sharing  ^-^.

Many thanks, Jetoar & Adam! :) Oh, Jetoar, you just remind me of... why do I constantly forget ordering the Papo Cheetah? I mean, I already planned to get that one, too. Seems we get so many new releases of new figures that I simply get too excited and then forget about ordering previous figures, too... :-[ ;D

*blushes* :-[ ...but I really think the quality of the walk-arounds of all contributors is generally very high and as I mentioned elsewhere I enjoy the different approaches and different handwritings in photography we always see in this section. :)
