Eocarcharia's Collection
« on: April 04, 2020, 09:50:31 PM »
I thought it was about time I shared my collection, so here goes. I've mostly collected Safari Ltd., Jurassic World, and Dinosaur King stuff up until now, but I've recently started to branch out with some Papo and PNSO figures, and plan to include more companies in the future.

First, a few miscellaneous figures on top of my bookshelf.


My collection of various Dinosaur King merchandise. I'm a big fan, if you couldn't tell.


The rest of my Sega Dinosaur King figures.


I have a (nearly) complete Carnegie Collection. Aside from all of the many, many variants, I'm missing a few of the minorly resculpted versions of some figures. So technically, not complete at all. But most of those are really hard to tell apart at a glance, so I'm happy just having all of the distinct-looking entries.

Part 1: The late 80s-early 90s.


Part 2, the mid 90s to early 2000s.


And Part 3, the mid 2000s to 2010s. The rest of the figures not on these shelves are dispersed throughout the rest of my “main” collection.


Most of my older Wild Safari figures. Until recently, I was a completist towards Safari Ltd.'s prehistoric lines, which is why I have so many of them compared to other brands.


Now, for my “main” collection, which consists of figures from various companies that I have because I like, without the goal of having a complete collection for any of the lines that they belong to.

The Stegosaurs.


The Ankylosaurs, showcasing some of my first experiments with risers. And decorative plants.


The Ceratosaurs and earlier Theropods.


The Allosauroids, with a (probably) temporary cardboard backdrop.


The Tyrannosauroids. I had to get a second feathered T. rex beacause my first one had a badly warped ankle. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the first one, leave it, try to repaint it, or just sell it.


The “raptors” shelf (plus Archaeopteryx).


The other Maniraptoriformes.


The Ceratopsids.


The Spinosaurid fishing hole, another probably temporary arrangement.


Some terrestrial non-Dinosaurian reptiles.


The Cenozoic, Part 1: Herbivores.


The Cenozoic, Part 2: Carnivorous mammals, and not necessarily carnivorous birds.


The Ornithopods.


The rest of Marginocephalia.


The Pterosaurs.


Aquatic Life, Part 1.


And Part 2.


Prehistoric crocodilians.


A few miscellaneous pieces on the top shelf.


Carnegie Apatosaurs, barely visible from the front behind the previous group.


Some Sauropods.


A few more.


A parade of Carnegie Brachiosaurs behind a parade of old Safari sauropods behind a parade of newer Safari sauropods.


The last of the Sauropods, plus nesting Oviraptor and the baby dinos.


Up next: my Mattel Jurassic World collection, another line that I was formerly dedicated to collecting 100% of (well, with a few exceptions). I dropped that approach towards the end of Dino Rivals and beginning of Primal Attack, amidst the swath of repainted figures being released. Shelf space was another important deciding factor. There are even some figures I have, like the Mega Dual Attacks and the Roarivore repaints that I have that aren't on display. I haven't decided yet if I want to get rid of them or keep them to repaint.

Starting off, the Ceratosaurs and early Theropods.


The coelurosaurian Theropods.


The Thyreophorans, sharing their plentiful shelf space with a couple Pterosaurs.


The Ceratopsians.


Herrerasaurus and the Allosaurs.


The smaller Sauropods and Spinosaurids.


The Raptors and Pachycephalosaurs (sans Pachycephalosaurus itself).


The non-Dinosaurs. The Postosuchus sign is something I printed out many years ago. I brought it out from being stuffed in a drawer somewhere storage in anticipation of the new Primal Attack Postosuchus.


The Ornithopods, Ornithomimids, and missing Pachycephalosaurs.


The STEM skeleton kits, forming a cramped recreation of Lockwood Manor.


The top shelf, starring the gargantuan Brachiosaurus.






A view of the entire assembly.


There's a little more off to the side, like the Mercenary team.


My Collection of minis, as well as Hasbro's Stegoceratops, one of the last remnants of my Hasbro JW figures.


Moving away from Jurassic World, my complete Battat Terra Series collection.


Some more assorted Safari Ltd. stuff.


More Safari Minis, and my Lego Dinos.


Bonus: My Carnegie Collection poster.


I have a little bit more of my collection left to post, but that huge wall of photos will do for now.

That's an impressive collection! Quite a wide variety, including some scarce vintage pieces.

I always love a good herd of Carnegie Brachiosauruses.
Got Brachauchenius?

Thank you everyone for the positive response. Here are a few more things that didn't make it into the first post.





And here's a wide shot of part of my display. It really highlights the absurd number of figures that I have. And that isn't even close to all of them.


I am planning some renovations soon though, so things probably won't stay the way they are for long.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Now for the last few groups.

My Safari Sue collection.


A bunch of figures waiting to be repainted or customized. Although I'm still working slowly on the Dracorex that I posted in my repaints thread, so none of them will probably get done anytime soon.


I already posted this in the Kaiju thread, but I'll include it here too, since I have made some slight rearrangements since then: my Godzilla collection.




And that's just about everything relevant in my collection. I won't have many new arrivals coming in the near future, so any updates here will most likely just be reorganizations.

In the absence of any new additions, I'll share one of the more unusual items in my collection:


A Diplocaulus model I made out of clay. It's based on the Diplocaulus from Jurassic World: The Game, so any kind of scientific accuracy or realism wasn't really the goal.

Nice sculpture! Looks like you made the stripes out of strips of different-colored clay rather than painting it?

I used to play a lot, but haven't for the past few years, for various reasons. Mainly for the time needed to be dedicated to it, and the prevalence of VIP-exclusives. Although I don't intend to demean anyone else's enjoyment of it.

Thanks! Yes, I did. I didn't really like to paint back when I made it. That opinion of mine has since changed.


I made a few trips this past week, and picked up a couple new things at a Target:

Thanks!



I actually received these a few months ago, but I've been waiting to open them until I got my new shelves set up, which I just did recently. I'll post pictures once I get everything on them organized.
