Great! I assume that with "the coming weeks" they mean october, like it was last year if I'm not mistaken.

Given that we already know about two of the new toys, I'm fine with waiting until October.

Thanks, I was just thinking this thread got off to a messy start. I say that even having contributed to it. It'll be nice to have the thread a little more exclusively reserved for official info.

The video itself should probably be in this thread at least.

It looks like were getting a sauropod this year. No claws, either so likely a derived titanosaur. Hopefully it's an alamosaurus!


The other two are the puma and babirusa from the video.

Excellent! I'm definitely on-board for a tiger-striped titanosaur.

It looks like we'll be seeing the first titanosaurid sauropod to turn up from Safari since the Carnegie Museum line Saltasaurus came out back in 1997. ;D

Oh, whew, I thought Safari might skip dinosaurs this year! (Just kidding.)

Wild theory: maybe it's Patagotitan. Sure, it wasn't described until this year, but the skeleton was installed at AMNH last year, and the remains were known before that, so if someone from Egidio Feruglio or the AMNH consulted on it, there could have been a sculpt even back in 2015. Improbable, but juuuust about possible. Anyway, whatever specific titanosaur this proves to be, looks like a must-have for me!

I digging the tiger stripes. Would be cool if it is a Saltasaurus. As much as I like the Carnegie one I'm  just sad the face wasn't detailed that good.  I just feel any sauropods are welcome, that and Hadrosaurs. So let hope we also get a Hadrosaur too.

As the only known sauropod to survive in north america until the end of the cretaceous Alamosaurus certainly deserves to be in safari's model range. Even if it's not an Alamosaurus any safari titanosaur has me hyped!

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

I agree about the Carnegie Saltasaurus, that's why I haven't got it, I would love one for the Wild Safari line! and also a I will welcome every hadrosaur they make happily, I need more of them in my collection.

ME best bet is a Alamosaurus, Or maybe its just a Saltasaurus

Hell it can evean be a 1:50 Brachiosaurus for all we know
A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

I'm hoping the lack of visible claws is because of size instead. A new prehistoric toob would be great.

I think we now have found something worse than the silhouettes from last time...pictures of just front limbs...good luck telling just which titanosaurid sauropod it is from just that! ;)

Saltasaurus or Alamasaurus probably. Personally hoping for Saltasaurus as I want to see more Carnegies being redone.

We'll find out soon enough what it is. :)

At least with the silhouettes we got an idea of the whole body and pose of the figure, this time it will be hard to narrow down options, but let's be patient.

You mean you're specifically hoping for a non-titanosaur sauropod?

I'd also like to see a new prehistoric toob (or four).
