Thanks for those! Added them immediately. But still, the Yowies remain the biggest issue.

HLBS dropped out of the dinosaur figure market when the first part of the crash hit.  They started back up again I think some of the old HLBS figures and the Saurian Safari rules are now sold by another company.  Big range of different mosasaurs at one time.  The whole line was intended to be Invicta conpatible around 1/45 scale.     
You can never have too many dinosaurs

Thanks for the info. "Invicta compatible" sounds intriguing, but somewhat impossible for a modern toy company unless they go for retrosaurs.

Has that been confirmed by Safari insiders? I'm nervous giving a name to figures that are just generically labeled, especially when it concerns possibly unique species.

I looked it up myself in a big guide to trilobites from my geology class.  According to the book, this genus is from the upper Cambrian and its paired pygidium (tail spikes) are unique.  I posted a photo of a fossil on page 9 of the 2013 Figures thread.

He's asking if anything specific has been confirmed by Safari that it is meant to represent Tricrepicephalus, as opposed to benig based upon comparisons. In which case, no, the only named Safari trilobite is Raymondites (with the fossil toob, and later larger Safriology figure).

Correct. I'd rather not give a name to unidentified species. Especially considering I've got enough named species to keep me occupied already. :)

Updated with pictures again. Still plenty of figures I couldn't find pics of. People with big collections, check yours to see if you can help me out, please! :)
And if you think you know of any other figures to add to the list, don't hesitate to post them.

Are you sure it's a Nodosaur? Is it labeled as such or would that be your own assessment? I'm always cautious with Chinasaurs, since they often give no names and let you sort things for yourself.

Exit Anancus.

well, there's no label at all indicating "Nodosaurus". it just looks like one. i will just remove it then. :)

Yeah, I'm not gonna add a figure to the list without knowing for sure it was intended to represent the species it most resembles, particularly if it involves a Chinasaur. For all we know it was supposed to have been an Ankylosaurus but they didn't bother to give it a tail club.

Thanks for the input though.

Updated the list with pics yet again.

Hmm, I don't think there is a way to insert a post in between others.  :( Unless Dr. Admin has such a method up his sleeve?

Perhaps you may have to include a note in your first post redirecting to this page for M-Z. It isn't ideal, but there seems little else to be done. Unless you start a thread afresh specifically for reference purposes, in which case you could then simply post the list one after the other, and have this thread continue as its companion for discussion?

I prefer to stick to this thread since it's going quite well and it makes it easier for people to look up what species have been debunked already. I prefer to go for your former option, even though it's not really pretty.  :-\

Keratocephalus (DinoWaurs)

SBell suggested this synapsid as unique.  Was it dropped from the list?

How about a link at the end of the A L list to locate the M Z list?  :)
