Safari Ltd Announces 2013 Prehistoric Animal Models

New Additions to Carnegie Collectibles Range and other Prehistoric Series from Safari Ltd

A sneak peek at the 2013 releases from Safari Ltd and it is great to see a number of exciting additions to the already extensive Safari Ltd replica range.  To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the relationship between the manufacturer and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, a 1:25 scale model of the recently discovered Theropod Concavenator is being introduced.

The model will measure nearly 18cm long and stand 9cm tall, an exciting new model for the Carnegie scale model dinosaur collectibles range.

Fans of Pterosaurs and marine reptiles won’t be disappointed as amongst the new additions to the Wild Safari Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Life series there is a colourful model of the Jurassic Pterosaur Dimorphodon and a model of an Elasmosaurus.

Other new models in the Wild Safari Dinos (not to scale range) include the Hadrosaur, Gryposaurus from the Campanian faunal stage of North America, care has been taken to skilfully re-create the spiny ridge along this dinosaur’s back.

This new Hadrosaur measures a little under 22cm long.

Not to be outdone the trend to include more Ceratopsians continues with a replica of Diabloceratops due out next year.  This horned dinosaur from Utah “Devil Horned Face” is bound to be a hit with model collectors.

One other interesting “new” Safari model is a reproduction of a Brachiosaurus in the Wild Safari range that resembles the older Brachiosaurid found in the Collectibles scale model range from this company (product code ref: 412001).  A more modern interpretation of a Brachiosaur was introduced into the Wild Dinos Safari range a couple of years back and now Safari have added a robust “swan-necked” Brachiosaurus to their not to scale range.

The Brachiosaur will measure approximately 30cm long and stand 35cm tall making it larger than the current Brachiosaurus model in the Wild Safari range.

Finally, in terms of new model introductions, there is exciting news for all fans of the “Terror Birds”, the long awaited Gastornis/Diatryma model is also going to be released next year – a sneaky peek below:

The Gastornis model will measure 8.5cm by 7cm approximately.

So much for the vertebrate palaeontologists amongst you, but for once invertebrate palaeontologists have been remembered by Safari Ltd and the company is going to introduce a special tube set featuring fauna from the Cambrian geological period.  Based on fossil discoveries from the Burgess Shale this ten figure model set will feature iconic Palaeozoic creatures such as a Trilobite and Anomalocaris plus a model of England’s very own Charnia (hoorah for Leicestershire).

    Excellent news and just what I had been hoping for – at last a good quality model of Diabloceratops. Wonderful !!!
    The Hadrosaur looks quite interesting too and this is a new name to me. Shall have to look that one up.
    Now, I wonder what CollectA will do in response to this ???

  2. Manuel Alejandro Gómez Ramos says:

    The figures are really exciting, and the ones I like are the Concavenator whose bright red color on the back and the color of the head gives a touch of distinction, although it is a catch-as already mentioned the Giganotosaurus and Cryolophosaurus. Moreover I am not convinced his hump as the Carnegie introduced.
    Wild Safari models are beautiful especially Gastornis, although the color is more blue head appears to be a mixture of terror bird and macaw.
    Moreover Diabloceratops I like, although my right is not very well understood as it was finishing the Triceratops.
    The figure is my favorite Dimorphodon perhaps why he pterosaurs are my favorite prehistoric animals, alongside diapsids anápsidos and primitive.
    Exits Burgess tube seems a great success.
    Those who might not convince me much are the Gryposaurus and Elasmosaurus, although the neck position is correct seems more a figure of terror.
    I understand that despite the company Carnegie / Safari has done a great job, could have improved this year. I consider myself a big fan of the figures of Carnegie / Safari and constructive criticism with my desire not in any way underestimate the pioneer and perhaps the most important dinosaur perhaps the world along with the newly created Papo and Collecta, considering Carnegie / Safari and Collecta have always stood out for its realism in his figures and not tempted to make figures with articulated jaws theropods, like other companies I know.
    My congratulations to the company this year Carnegie / Safari and I’m glad they are released as soon these developments.

    • Mike says:

      No plans for a Carcharodontosaurus in 2013 I’m afraid we have emailed you in person with a proposal to reserve the Mapusaurus when it comes in.

  5. Emma Rasmussen says:

    Hey Mike this is just amazing!Cambrian creatures?!I just can’t wait.When in 2013 do they come out like what month?Im already dying for them.

    • Mike says:

      We are not sure what the schedule for production is going to be at the moment, we have meetings in January with Safari etc to sort all this out, best thing we can say is that we have already committed to bringing a large number of Safari products into our warehouse and I know that the Cambrian creatures are on the manifest – we can email you when they arrive and reserve a set for you.

  6. Emma Rasmussen says:

    Hey guys I got some dates on when these are to be released! :D
    Feb. 5-12,2013.

  7. Juan Andrés says:

    I really love those 2013 releases.They are wonderful!!! But a question please. Is Safari Ltd going to continue with their trending of add more ceratopsian dinosaurs to their Wild Safari range?Please,answer.Thanks

    • Mike says:

      We work closely with Safari Ltd and there are already plans to increase both the Collectibles range and the Wild Safari range of dinosaurs in 2014. There has been a revision of Ceratopsian taxonomy in recent years plus a number of new genera have been erected, hence the trend to add more horned dinosaurs to the range.

  8. Emma says:

    I’m going to buy the Cambrian toob today and see if it is available.If not,I can wait.
