Since the Carnegie line is over we can expect a substantial lot again, I believe.

I wouldn't mind that at all.I would like to see more things that were once part of the Carnegie Collection turn up again alongside the new prehistoric mammals.
I wonder how a new Ankylosaurus would turn out,or maybe a new Pteranodon?

As much as I'd love a new Ankylosaurus, I think Stegosaurus deserves a new Safari toy more.

A LOT of Dinosaurs Deserve a new toy from Safari

There

Dilophosaurus
Allosaurus
Triceratops
Edmontosaurus
As well as Stegosaurus


A true Dinosaur fan loves dinosaurs for what they are, not what he/she wants them to be.

Unfortunately,the current Stegosaurus model in the Wild Safari line is already a remake,and a third version of anything not named Tyrannosaurus rex seems unlikely to me...

But when it comes to a dinosaur as iconic as Stegosaurus,I can never say never.

Theres also lots of dinosaurs that Safari didn't make yet, that would be very cool like:
Shantungosaurus
Rugops
Majungosaurus
Rebbachisaurus
And A LOT more.

I saw the Mastodon in their YouTube video.  And when it went to Asia something looks like the Hyaenodon from Walking with Prehistoric Beast. I don't think I saw any Dinosaurs.

I think there is a dinosaur in europe. Possibly balaur?
Ink ink ink, cephalopods don’t stink... so does their ink. I think.

That would mean another mammal. I have a feeling they might to skimp on the dinosaur department this year. :(

Africa
-Brown animal (pygmy hippo?).
-Peregrine Falcon (in Africa?!).
-Scorpion.

Asia
-White animal (horse?).
-Siamese cats.
-Dragon.
-Babirusa.
-Brown and black striped mammal, Hyaenodon as already guessed is possible.

Australia
-I think two different whale figures? One in the foreground looks like a humpback but some of the others seem to have shorter heads.
-Frog-fish.
-Red kangaroo.

Europe
-Legally safe Smurf knockoff.
-Brown bird with blue wings, could definitely be Balaur.
-Horse.
-One black and one white sheep, seem to be the same mold.
-A flat-faced dog of some sort, maybe mastiff.

South America
-Dragon?
-A large rorqual, not a humpback and not the same as the earlier whales.
-Jaguar.

North America
-Dragon?
-Spiny Lobster (does America have spiny lobsters?).
-A bunch of people standing around.
-Purple slug monster? Probably an owl.
-White animal sitting upright, probably a prairie dog, maybe burrowing owl.
-Muskox.
-Mastodon
-Jackrabbit

There might more figures than the ones shown in the teaser, stargatealek's lists are 27 or 28 if the whales in Australia are different species, last year there were far more new figures between the fantasy, prehistoric and extant series

There were no hints in the video of either the new puma that looks like it's part of the Wildlife Wonders line or the Daeodon,so there are certainly more new models than are hinted at in that video. :)

I don't see any dinosaurs in this, I think that the "Balaur" is actually a Harpy bird-women.

Otherwise, I agree with Stargatedalek's list, with the addition that the Prairie dog/Burrowing Owl is probably a Woodchuck.  Here's hoping that spiny lobster is actually some crazy Paleozoic invertebrate, an eurypterid maybe?

There must be more figures in the collection, so I'm a bit disappointed with this teaser, at least the pictures could have been clear instead of blurry. This way is not a proper teaser, more like a joke.

If I was making the teaser I would would have made a word puzzle that you could do to figure out what the species is. For example dinosaur - Kosnyaurslau. Then you could try to unscramble the letters to figure out what the species is.

other than the mastodon I think they are playing it a bit too safe with the prehistoric mammals theyve chosen. Daeodon has been done by 2-3 other companies and hyenodon has as well, and with the same stripe markings as WWPB. I was hoping theyd give us a thylacosmilus or bear-dog. Then again its their first try at extinct mammals in a while so i guess they want to release mammals that have already worked for other companies as figures in the past.

btw these guys are such teases>:D
