Aw, goodbye oh great collection. That makes me sad, I'm not really a dinosaur collector (yet) but I have always admired those models. Makes me wonder if they just don't sell, or if they have too many of the same model that they compete? Regardless, it will be missed.

Anotehr remarkable collection from Safari will stay to the eternity! cheers Carnegi is still the master of all collections of prehistoric animals among major brands. Fortunately, Wild Safari Dinos collection increased in quality these last years and we will surely see lots of great prehistoric creatures from this brand still for a long time. cheers

A great collection is closed but I'm not so sad. The Safari VW is closed but Safari Ltd gave birth to the WW line. As Roger said, the Wild Safari dinos increased in quality the last years. This was the "toyish dinos" line but it became a real Museum quality line.
I also have great hope we will see something new soon.

In other news. Safari Plans on increasing the number of models they make for the Wild Safari Line. Hopefully we can get models of animals that were exclusive for the Carnegie Collection to be made for the Wild Safari Line

I hope that all models of Carnegie will be reissued in Wild Safari as is happening for the tiger shark of this year that is from Carnegie. The same will happen for Monterey Aquarium Suspect . I collect only Wild Safari, Safari farm, Best in show for dogs and Winner cicle for the horses. However I do not like these collections that begin and end. Mad

Models i hope they remake from the Carnegie line For the Wild Safari are the Diplodocus, Camerasaurus, Saltasaurus, Dilong, Psittacosaurus, Oviraptor, Euoplocephalus, Ankylosaurus, Protoceratops. Pretty much every dinosaur that was mde for the line that was never made for the Wild Safari Line.

What i want the most out of all models is a Concavenator for the Wild Safari line. Now that the Carnegie model is retired, i can only hope that they remake it for the line.

All lines will end soon or later. Though, when a line is directly replaced by another compatible line, it is not the end. Actually, Wild Safari will "absorb" Carnegi collection, I guess. It is just a factual thing once Carnegi cooperation will be discontinued. One of Safari Farm horses was also introduced in Winners Circle and Farm horses were gradually discontinued to give place to the newer collection. Also the German Shepherd was moved to Best in Show Dogs collection.
By the way, if you choose something thematic like I did with my collection of foxes, you'll find a never ending collection! Laughing

I dont think we can expect any of Carnegie Models to wind up in the Wild Safari Collection and be re-branded. The Carnegie Museum wanted full control over Safaris Dinosaur offerings and was actively trying to get Safari to stop producing there own line of Dinosaur models which includes gems like the Gryposaurus. It is this that lead to the Carnegie Collections Demise.

If working with Carnegie Museum was so great (according to the article), why stop?
