If these are the actual measurements for the Spinosaurus then I am not interested anymore...

Size in inches: 9.25 L x 2.0 W x 3.13 H
UPC: 095866005887

If those are indeed the actual measurements for the Spinosaurus, then I am very interested, as a toy that size would be easier to squeeze into my theropod display!

[...] Im not sure if the last guy is a tyrannosaur, but if it is Daspletosaurus seems like the best bet, especially since Daspletosaurus was another Carnegie figure. [...]

Daspletosaurus isn't in the Carnegie Collection.  Perhaps you're thinking of the Albertosaurus?

What scale would those dimensions put this possible Spinosaurus at? I would much prefer a 1:35-1:40 scale one for my collection, then anything below that really, even if this were to be the most up to date rendition yet.


Edit: Assuming the other two are Daspletosaurus and Baryonyx, anyone have ideas on scale for those as well based on the dimensions on the website for them?


Are they really all below 1:40?

I suppose that with respect to the supposed carnivorous dinosaurs they have reduced the size and prices for economic reasons and also because the situation of the coronavirus pandemic has put them in an economically compromised situation like almost all the companies in the world. Safari was not going to be the exception, it is my assumption or interpretation, not an assertion.

This is interesting. Safari's doing a similar reveal tactic as 2017. Also, the "Fantasy Dinosaurs" could be ones based off of the Dino Dana series since Safari Ltd is cooperating with that franchise. The only reason they're labeled as fantasy figures is because they're not paleontologically accurate.

Pretty weird if they made Spinosaurus that size, not very surprised about the other ones but Spino I would think they would make it 1:35 again to measure up with the Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Maybe is to not completely kill the swimming one yet? I'll still get it if I like how it looks, despite it's size (if it's correct)

A Daspletosaurus would be very welcome, I recently remarked we still need a definite version of it (and wouldn't mind feathers but we shall see) and it would allow to incorporate the new research on facial tissue for Daspletosaurus.
Baryonyx is really nice as well, loved the Carnegie one but we still need a great one (guess that means no need to get the Schleich after all :P).
Didn't get the 2019 Spinosaurus cause I didn't like the texture that much, here's to hoping this is better. It does seem that the hind legs are positioned a bit different as well, should be nice for the members who disliked the pose.

I do hope those aren't all though, kinda missing a herbivore (okay and I am also still hoping for Plateosaurus).

I also don't think this is all they will do. They revealed 3 wildlife figures and 3 fantasy ones ( the dinos plus a dragon) and nothing for the other lines they have.

So . . . who else strongly suspects that both Safari and CollectA have a new Spinosaurus in store for 2021?

As for Daspletosaurus, that would be wonderful. The only one I presently own is the goofy but endearing CollectA version. Theres also going to be the one from Beasts of the Mesozoic, but that could well end up being a 2022 release.

I hope these are the only three theropods in the 2021 assortment. Id like to see more plant eaters.

Like others are saying, it's incredible to see a new Spinosaurus this fast. While I do wonder if it is a modified version of the 2019 one, it also looks to be standing so possibly a new sculpt entirely?


I remember Doug answering a question, if he would do a new Spinosaurus, and he said he likes his Sculpt and would just remodel it, but maybe Safari had other Plans. Or it is a modified, smaller Cast of the last one. I would love it. Also the smaller size. And hopefully a new Paintjob. Sadly, i really do not like the last Paintjob on the current Spinosaurus.

The two "fantasy" Figures seem to be Retro Tysannosaurus and Triceratops, i would guess. Baryonyx would be okay, but i would have loved an Ichthyovenator or Irritator. But we'll see.
Daspleto makes sense to mee, too. On the other Hand i would love to see a new Yutyrannus.

Going by silhouettes he two Fantasy ones do not seem to be particularily Retro.
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

They are all smaller that 1:40! :'(

By my calculations, if the two figures are Daspletosaurus and Baryonyx they are roughly 1:40 once you take into account curves in the tail and the head being raised up.


I hope this isn't all Safari's releasing for their prehistoric line.  I'd be happy with a Daspletosaurus I think, but I already have the Favorite Baryonyx which I like very much so I don't need another Baryonyx (if it is one) and I have no interest in the Spinosaurus.  I'm still hoping for Herrerasaurus, Cryolophosaurus, Saurornithoides, Rhamphorhynchus and Plateosaurus!

They are playing with the Safari fans like the cat with the mouse...

I'm sorry... I had too...


eww, is that from that awful Cats movie?  :P

Im curious about the baryonyx, I only have the old green Carnegie one, and never was able to get the Invicta or more recent Favorite version. Ive been thinking of getting the smaller Collecta one but Ill see what this one looks like first. I hope the tyrannosaur isnt a t-rex but it very likely could be a less feathered Rex.

anyone know what the toob figures under the leopard/jaguar could be? The other toob seems to be a remake of the Rain Forest toob and the third toob seems to be humans of some sort.

These look good so far. I'm also hoping for daspletosaurus and baryonyx. The spinosaurus may seem a bit small, but if it was sculpted after the new paper came out about the tail then it was a fast turnaround.

Thats true. I thought of the Dinosaurs in my 90s Kidsbooks. Like a Schleich Figure. Maybe just a more toyisch appearance.

I think it's more likely that's an Albertosaurus, since the Carnegie's due for a remake.

Ooh yeah your right! I have the model right here on my shelf and I constantly call it a Despletosaurus for some reason... maybe because it reminds me of the Despletosaurus From that old dinosaur planet documentary on discovery...  :-\

Yeah, I was going to say, those sound just about right for approximately 1:40 scale.
I love the possibility of a Daspletosaurus! I just hope we finally get a Centrosaurus figure to go with it. I've been wishing for one for years. I want to round out my collection of classic Late Cretaceous creatures!

A daspletosaurus torosus or albertosaurus sarcophagus by Safari would be welcome and highly desired figures from my personal point of view.

I would also like a paraceratherium and a centrosaurus to give two examples. Perhaps Safari will one day fulfill those wishes.
