The Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus Model Discovered During a Stocktake

Team members at Everything Dinosaur recently started the company’s annual stocktake.  Whilst tidying up, a handful of rare dinosaur models were discovered.  Some Safari Ltd Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus dinosaur models, complete with original packaging and labels.  This dinosaur model went out of production many years ago and is highly-prized by collectors.

The End of the Line Back in Early 2015

The Carnegie Collection range of prehistoric animal models was retired in early 2015.  The last of the dinosaur models to be added to this range was a Velociraptor.  The Carnegie Collection range is regarded as a set of “classic” figures, they may not be anatomically accurate, not by the standards set these days, but the hand-painted models are highly sought after by discerning collectors.  To find some Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus models is a real coup.

A spokesperson for the UK-based dinosaur company stated:

“The models were found at the start of our annual company inventory review.  Just a handful of these rare models are available, we expect that once we publicise this, the remaining figures that we have will be snapped up by dinosaur fans and model collectors.  These figures come complete with their original labels and plastic bases – we never thought that we would see the likes of them again.”

The Carnegie Collection Acrocanthosaurus (model number 403901), was first produced back in 2001, like the rest of this popular range, it was thought to be long gone.  However, a handful have been discovered, all in pristine condition in Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse.
