Safari Ltd – New Prehistoric Animal Models for 2015
Safari Ltd have provided Everything Dinosaur with information in regards to this company’s new prehistoric animal models scheduled for release in 2015. As with the trend in recent years, the number of Wild Safari Dinos introductions outnumbers those in the Carnegie Collectibles, scale model range. One new addition is being added to the Carnegie Collectibles series, a model of a feathered Velociraptor.

The other prehistoric animal models that are due out next year are all part of the not-to-scale Wild Safari Dinos model range. The introductions consist of a feathered Yutyrannus, the horned dinosaur Nasutoceratops, an Archaeopteryx figure and a model of the armoured dinosaur known as Sauropelta.
The Feathered Yutyrannus Dinosaur Model
The Yutyrannus model measures 20 cm long and is about the same height as the Velociraptor figure discussed earlier, just under 8 cm tall.

The Wild Safari Dinos Nasutoceratops
A beautifully crafted figure that keeps up the company’s proud tradition of introducing at least one horned dinosaur model each year. The Nasutoceratops measures 17 cm in length and stands 6 cm high.

Next, we have a replica of Archaeopteryx, a replica painted to reflect some of the latest scientific thinking about “ancient wing” or Urvogel, as the Germans like to call it. The model is quite large, it is just under 10 cm high and the wing span is around 10 cm too. What a fantastic model it is.

Last but not least, is the wonderful replica of Sauropelta. At Everything Dinosaur we just love our armoured dinosaurs and we look forward to receiving this model into our range early in 2015.
