If Carnegie makes Tyrannosaurus it should be feathered and without tripod stance.As for the second one,I'm hoping to see Deinonychus or Velociraptor,though I expect Parasaurolophus.

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 ?
No.A guy asked Safari about doing an Archaeoptery,and they said it was in their inspiration list in bold and all caps.They didn't specify for what line was the Archaeoptery and they didn't say that they were going to do it  :)
I would prefer the 2nd one to be either a feathered Velociraptor or Deinonychus  :D

What if it's Kronosaurus? The current one is pretty crappy in the anatomy department, and everyone loves big toothy things.

Kronosaurus is not as popular as Velociraptor or Parasaurolophus could be,I think  ;)

Sounds like a pretty good indication that they'll be making one or will be considering making one to me. If it's not for the Carnegie line in 2014, maybe it'll be Safari or Carnegie in 2015. Archeopteryx has mainstream appeal (it's known to the general public as the "first bird" even though it isn't really such)

Also another member said this a while back:

Based on Safari Ltd's Facebook comments, and other indications, I believe it's almost certain that will be producing an Archaeopteryx in 2014 or, 2015 at the latest.

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.

Correct. Funny that despite T.Rex's popularity, these companies seem to keep messing it up. Hoping Carnegie does it right this time.

I must sat that both Sucho, mono and pachyr looks great, they are very welcome indeed. the sucho looks way better than the sucho model we have now,


The megalodon looks odd somehow but maybe itts looks better in reality.













Suchomimus:

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

Monolophosaurus:

Pachyrhinosaurus:

The Carcharodon megalodon model:

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'm almost certain we will be seeing a trex from carnegie, especially considering that last year it was mentioned that carnegie had planned to release a figure honoring their anniversary, but the release had been pushed forward a year.
My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

I hope we will, hopefully a feathery one.

You can be almost positive that if they produce Tyrannosaurs Rex, it will not have feathers as there is zero evidence to support such a model. They generally play it safe with their sculpts and seldom cross over into speculation .
So unless they select an alternate species of Tyrannosaur, perhaps one from China, I am fairly sure no feathers

Tyrannosaurus does seem to be their species of choice for anniversary celebrations .. ;)

Okay, I think I've figured it out. Okay, so lets see. Carnegie is releasing two resculpts this year, both are safe picks, and not exotic or anything. They released a Tyrannosaurus for their 10th anniversary. I think that they are going to release a resculpt of Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops.
That's what think at least.

Now imagine we lived in a perfect world, and the newly sculpted tyrannosaurus and triceratops could be combined somehow into a mini-diorama  8)

Yeah but...that still leaves one figure (Carnegie is doing more than one figure this year, right?)

I'm trying to think of species that have wide appeal. Pterosaur? Iguanodon? Velociraptor?

The suspense is killing me ;D I want Carnegie to release the information soon.

Masiakasaurus - can you tell us whether or not any of these guesses are close to the actual figure? Or at least deny some of them, like you did previously?

I've done enough hinting I think. Now its just a waiting game (and I sadly don't know when they will officially announce them, but I hope its soon).
