Team members at Everything Dinosaur came across this image of a pair of Microraptors displaying to each other. The image shows two Wild Safari Prehistoric World Microraptor models and the picture was sent to Everything Dinosaur by Safari Ltd in 2017 or thereabouts. The picture has not been used by Everything Dinosaur before.
Wild Safari Prehistoric World Microraptor
The image (above), was one of several sent to Everything Dinosaur by Safari Ltd to promote their range of newly introduced prehistoric animal figures. That year (2017), was a bumper year for new prehistoric animal model introductions from Safari Ltd. In total, there were thirteen new replicas introduced. As well as the Microraptor, there was a new model of another member of the Dromaeosauridae, albeit from a different subfamily to Microraptor. Safari Ltd added a feathered Velociraptor to their product portfolio.
The picture (above) shows a pack of Velociraptors (Wild Safari Prehistoric World Velociraptor dinosaur models).
The list of new figures from Safari Ltd in 2017:
- Tyrannosaurus rex (feathered)
- Velociraptor (feathered)
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:
“What a splendid year 2017 turned out to be for new prehistoric animal models from Safari Ltd. In 2014, the twenty-eight year collaboration between the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and Safari Ltd had ended just a couple of years before. More prehistoric figures had been promised by the American-based manufacturer and in 2017 collectors began to see the results of Safari Ltd’s development work.”
Safari Ltd have continued their trend of increasing the number of prehistoric animal figures they produce. Even a pandemic has not stopped them, Everything Dinosaur will stock a further two new Safari Ltd dinosaur models this year.
