Hi Juan, I got it a few days ago. I'll try to snap and post some pictures, but it's been snowing and raining and cloudy here for a while. The light is terrible

I will say this about the model: (1) The pleasant surprise (for me) was that the tail was longer than it appears in the stock pictures and despite touching the ground for a tripod position, it still feels like the tail is (at least for the most part) being held upright. In other words, it's looks less like a tail-dragger than I feared. (2) The unpleasant surprise was that the model is not painted nearly as well as it appears in the stock pictures. I know I shouldn't have been surprised -- this is typical -- but it really affects the overall look of the model and it was discouraging.

Overall, I really like it though. One of my favorite Tyrannosaurus rex models, easily.

Hi Juan, I'm sorry I haven't posted any pictures yet. I'm still planning on doing it. The last several days have really just been difficult (no light, extremely cloudy, and to top it off, very sick baby to take care of). I'm hoping I'll get a chance this weekend. Again, I'm very sorry for the delay.

Here's an interesting T. Rex from Safari, Ltd. that I had never seen before:

Wow! I've never seen that before. Phil, where did you find it? (Either the photo, or if you own it, the figure.) I wonder what the backstory is.

Very interesting!

It reminds me of the Schleich 15001-15006 WWF series.  It's for auction/sale, but it's definitely not inexpensive...

Thank you Christophe, Donny, and Phil! Very kind of you all. He is doing much better now.

Hi Susanne, yes apparently the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] was a "10th Anniversary Model" and this most recent one is the "25th Anniversary" model. However, I don't know what exactly it is supposed to be the Anniversary of (anniversary of the Carnegie Collection? of making their first T. rex? something else?). no idea….

…wait! I just looked up more information about the Carnegie Collection and it appears that they began the line and started making model in 1989, 25 years ago. So there you go: The Anniversary of the beginning of the Carnegie Collection. :)

Ahhh! So that is why !!! Congratulations to Safari  cheers 

I suspect that if it was not for the cooperation with the museum, we might not have had this wonderful brand at all  drunken 

So now I hope to get this model  Very Happy

Juan! (and any other interested parties), I finally was able to take a couple of pictures. Here are two halfway decent shots of the new 2014 Carnegie Tyrannosaurus rex (25th anniversary edition).

I think if you compare these shots (especially the first) with the Stock photo that Safari has released, you can see that the paintwork in the Stock photo is much better -- more textured, more detail, more variety of color, and so on. That's been my main source of disappointment. However, overall, I really like the figure. A lot. My favorite T. rex is still the Brown, "unfeathered" Kinto-Favorite T. rex from the recently released series. But this one is also very nice.

Once you get a hold of one,you will not be disappointed.I have one (it looks exactly like the one Scott took pictures of) and I think this is the best Tyrannosaurus rex toy since the one from Battat in the 90's. Very Happy
