Safari Ltd - new for 2014
« on: September 03, 2013, 08:20:29 PM »
[Edited to updated the images - Admin]

Our first images of the Wild Safari Dinos range from Safari Ltd, there are going to be four model introductions in 2014 into this not to scale range by Safari Ltd, we discussed the dinosaurs Monolophosaurus, Suchomimus and the Pachyrhinosaurus a few days ago, they are going to be joined by a Carcharodon megalodon.


The prototypes we saw were painted a blueish hue, similar to the paint colour on the Wild Safari Gryposaurus that was introduced this year.


We will post up more updates and information when we (Everything Dinosaur) get them, availability of these models - from Late February 2014 but this date could change, however, we will do what we can to keep everyone posted.

i am getting all of the dinos, unless they make major changes on the megalodon, i'll skip that one.

Same here.  My Safari Great White makes a fine Megalodon currently any way. :)

Same here. The Sucho is a welcome update, the Mono and Pachyrhino are welcome additions. But the Megalodon is just an oversized White Shark.

I wonder what Carnegie has in store. Getting new Versions of some of the retired pieces would be nice.
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

I'm not a shark collector, but maybe the Megalo will look better in person? Maybe the stock photo isn't very flattering :-\

The Carnegie Collectibles announcement date has not been formerly set yet, it does tend to come after the Wild Safari Dinos and such like as there can be a delay with approvals from the palaeontology team at the Carnegie Museum (Pittsburgh) and such like.  We are sending feedback to Safari Ltd on the Megalodon model and we expect they will be letting us know shortly what plans have been finalised.  It is just a case of being a little patient.  On that note, Papo intend to announce their 2014 range around the first week of December.  We got a few meetings planned and things should be clearer after these.

Papo announcing their new models on the fourst week of December?That's very exciting  :D
In 2011,they announced their 2012 models almost in the end of the year,in 2012,in mid December.It looks like they're announcing their new items earlier every year!  :)

As for Carnegie I hope to see their new models soon.

Like my good spanish friend said in the last post, Im also waiting the new carnegies. But im more nervous to see what Papo will show. Expecting Ceratosaurus, Aptosaurus and Giganotosaurus.

I think people will be happy with the two new Carnegie pieces, despite the fact that they are such safe picks.

Only two new pieces? And safe picks? The latter would suggest either new Versionsof old Carnegies or "Stock Dinosaurs" ( likely to overlap )

If one or both happen to be a new T-Rex or Triceratops I'm good..i actually need some good updated figures to carry around for sculpting and such in the shop.

I hope they're making appropiate changes on the Carcharodon megalodon I wasn't going to get the first model.I hope they use a more original coloration,etc,etc  :)
Some sharks has very colorful patterns.That doesn't mean that because Megalodon and white sharks are releatives they has to have the same patterning.

Oops,double post   :P

If Carnegie goes with Triceratops, it better be on par or better than this:

That one has a bit much of a JP feel for me..kinda felt like they were doing what Papo was doing there...not that it's bad per se..but I would like to see a more accurate one.

A guaranteed sell but not a trike and not a sauropod..doesn't leave much really assuming the other one is a Rex.  Allo and Stego is about it I think.

Now,I'm almost sure Carnegie will release another Tyrannosaurus.No Triceratops?OK,it could be an hadrosaur like Parasaurolophus.Parasaurolophus would sell good.

He said no Allo,no Stego,no Apato,no Kosmo.

I think what he wants to say is that themodel themselves are pretty good, but it's very common and has done.Tyrannosaurus would be the perfect example for that.Wide appeal,definite sale,very common.Ibet Carnegie will release it.I thought the second was going to be Trceratops but nope.Maybe a hadrosaur  :)
