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



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  :)
Maybe he just said they have wide appeal to throw us off the trail? ;D

I know you can't say anything yet, but have you seen the sculpts yourself? Are they good?

If I were compiling a short list of the for-certain most popular dinosaurs I think hadrosaurs would be pushed back to the 2nd list. Looking to popular media, even Iguanodon isn't known as well as others.  Pterosaurs and prehistoric marine reptiles are also good sellers but not in the same league as the selling power of  Rex.  Maybe it's TWO T-Rexes ! ;)

Two T-rexs are excessive I think  >:(
If only one would be ok.The misterious second one might be a new dromaeosaur?

i dont mind two rexes really, as long as the two would complement each other (like the Papo ones)

what do you mean by different species?   You mean same Genus?
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

This year Carnegie's releases are supposed to be re-sculpts so Tarbosaurus won't be released.
I'm almost completely sure Carnegie will havea new Tyrannosaurus.As for the second,I'll bet for Velociraptor and Parasaurolophus,assuming that it's not Triceratops

An accurate Velociraptor would be most welcome.

I would like for it to be a velociraptor and maybe a hadrosaur (Parasaurolophus) since those sculpts needed badly updating. Imo, the Anniversary rex is still a good figure and I like it a lot :)

Didn't Carnegie say they were doing an Archeopteryx?

An Archeopteryx would be as welcome from me as a Velociraptor. Given its scientific significance and mild popularity I'm really surprised Archeopteryx has not been tackled by anyone yet. I know Bullyland has one, and it is not very good. Kaiyodo does too but they're small and that one seems difficult to locate. Aside from that I can't think of many others, not even CollectA has one I don't think. Must be because everyone thinks of it as a bird when in reality it is just another feathered dinosaur.

I can't stand the original Parasaurolophus. I used to display it on my shelf but had to pack it away, I just don't like it. A new one would be great.

I don't like the original Para much either, but it's not too bad for its time :)

I am hoping Apatosaurus and Parasaurolophus. They could really use a re-sculpt.
Tyrannosaurus is fine, it doesn't need an update just yet.

Sadly, Masiakasaurus confirmed that an updated Apato is not among the new models :( I wanted one too...

For a second there I thought you said "Masiakasaurus was confirmed" and I got excited but then I realized you were talking about the forum member.  :P A Masiakasaurus would be nice...from someone eventually. Surprised one has not come out yet.

There are plenty of good Parasaurolophus interpretations in the market, but Safari Ltd. is really good at making hadrosaurs (I would prefer a Corythosaurus, Lambeosaurus or even an updated Maiasaura).

We could still use another Rex as there hasn't been a definitive version released by Safari Ltd., Papo or Schleich.

Regarding the Archeopteryx, I was thinking the same thing. There's been a general dearth of iconic dinosaur representations in the market (e.g. Archeopteryx, Iguanodon, or Megalosaurus)

Apatosaurus needs a resculpt. The last interpretation looked a bit odd.
