You were going to make a Quetz? Were you going to make it flying or in the cool terrestrial position?

And yeah, that is a really cool figure. It reminds me of a few I saw at my local museum. They had all these cool dioramas. I should show you guys sometime D:
What I love about Allosaurus is that it lived an extremely violent life that was rife with broken bones, cuts, scrapes, infections, sprains, and yet it just kept on truckin.

Terrestrial. I'm still planning it but it's hard to say how long the trike will take to get done.  It's also a matter of funds. We work on donations so each project needs so much to get started. The Trike for example needs 500.00 to start. The eyes for it alone will cost me 150.00 .

Sounds like some of Malcolm's work..he does great prehistoric dios.

The Scutosaurus is going to be retired?  But it's so tiny and adorable!

What? Really?

Now their Inostrancevia is going to go hungry.

The Carnegie collection needs to seriously update their Apatosaurus, Kronosaurus, Baryonyx, Velociraptor, Iguanodon, Allosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Quetzalcoatlus, Elasmosaurus, and Stegosaurus. I think Allosaurus, Velociraptor and Stegosaurus have the best odds of being resculpted in the next few years.

Well the Megalodon came out in November and the Ammonite came out in March as I recall.

Megalodon has been out for a while worldwide as we understand it.  The Ammonite is only just reaching UK shores (we are based in the UK).  It along with the ascent of man blister pack are coming in next week, so I am told.  Can't wait.

The Wild Safari Ammonite model is in stock at Everything Dinosaur:Wild Safari Ammonite

This is the first time we have seen this model in the flesh as it were, we lobbied Safari to make one after the Bullyland replicas were withdrawn.  It is a little smaller than the large Ammonite from Bullyland, but it is very well painted, debate currently going on in the office as to which genus the model represents.

The Evolution of Man model series consists of a set of five replicas representing Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Homo neanderthalensis and Homo sapiens.   It is a blister packed set with some brief details on each of the species in the set provided in four languages on the back of the pack (English, French, Spanish and German).

See Evolution of Man set here: Evolution of Man Model Set

Each model is holding an implement to represent development A. afarensis has a piece of bone, H. erectus is holding a burning torch, H. sapiens with Clovis spear etc.

On the face of it, this particular model set might become quite a collectors item.

Well, if one is interested in Men....
Interestingly enough that set reminds me of the John Gurche Art I saw in a PT #109.

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

So true, so true.
I think the Neanderthal is the best match. Any info if Safari worked with the Smithonian for this set?

Unlikely to have worked with Smithsonian and not mentioned it.  Smithsonian is hard to work with since they contracted out their museum shops and change contractors.  Safari ltd is very progressive about looking to expand the range of their product lines.  My guess is this is a trial for a blister pack format.  this a a great way for collectors to display figures like the Star wars figure collectors who hang their packsages on hooks for display.  I was pleased to see they kept them close enough in scale to be used with their Prehistoric mammals and modern animal lines.  I think that is the mistake Bullyland made with they had a similar series years back.  They were too big a scale to use with the Bullyland mammals.
