Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus (Model Number 403901)
First produced in 2001, the Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus was a mainstay of this highly popular model series up until its retirement back in 2010. The model was rarely found in ordinary toy shops with their plethora of T. rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops replicas and genuine dinosaur model collectors had to seek this one out more often than not. Acrocanthosaurus (A. atokensis) was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs of North America during the Early Cretaceous. It has been estimated to have reached lengths in excess of twelve metres and footprints found in Texas (USA), might be those of this huge Theropod dinosaur and, if so, they indicate that this dinosaur may have hunted in packs.

So why the interest in this dinosaur model, one that was officially retired five years ago? With the demise of the entire Carnegie Collection model series, team members at Everything Dinosaur know that many collectors and dinosaur model fans are eager to get their hands on this replica so that they can complete their Carnegie collections. Everything Dinosaur has been able to acquire a number of these dinosaur models and we are selling them at the same price they were back in 2010 just £4.99 plus postage. After all, why should we exploit a situation just because a dinosaur model is getting rarer and rarer.
