Wildlife 5417 African Savannah
« on: January 01, 2013, 10:07:34 »
Could not resist to buy some extra rhino's and elephants, for a safari setup. So I bought the 5417 not a lot of new stuff, but a lovely little set if you want to extent your safari theme. First the front and back cover of the box.

The contents shown. Seems a lot, but most of it is tree.


The baseplate assembled. Looks really 'savannah like' if you ask me. More than the former sets. Furthermore, I just realised that the hole in the rocks were another rock can be put in is there if you want to customize. Stupid I never realised that before!  :-\

The rest of the inventory shown here. I really like the lunchbox, safari documentarist must eat too! Is it something new, that lunchbox? The cool box has the zebra logo, which is not a sticker but printed on to it.



The animals and the klicky.


Final setup. (Looks like that leopard is in trouble! Good thing elephant and rhinoceros can't climb)

Thank you for the review... The large elephant is among my favorite playmoanimals.. and I love the rhinos too, though I think I prefer the older version.

That baseplate is GORGEOUS for some reason!

Great review, thanks! I really really love that baseplate!!! :love: Hadn't noticed it before, but it looks really good. Afraid I'm going to have to get this set just for that.

I love this set and I want it too. :love: I think the base is the same from the caveman with the mammouth tent but with different colors. I don't understand why they didn't do a new one. And I have seen many copies from other parts to many new sets. No more new ideas from Geobra?? Many thanks for the review.

George.

Thank you for the review!!
I love the new baseplate. I think the rest of the set is ok, but nothing is, except for the baseplate, really new and surprising. Still looks like a great set anyway  :love:
