PostSubject: Pre-1996 Carnegie Collection dinosaurs   Tue Jul 30, 2013 11:56 pm

Hey everyone! This is the first part of my collection I'm sharing, and the one I'm most proud of--I've tried to collect as many variants of early Carnegie Collection dinosaurs as possible, including minor differences in paint and text on the bottom. Here's most of them, enjoy! I also posted this on the Dino Toy Forum, so if you frequent that page these pictures may look a bit familiar.

Original Carnegie Stegosaurus--as is the case with most of the following pictures, it's interesting to note how much the coloring varies on the figures.

Alongside the 2nd version of the Stegosaurus. I still don't have the green/red variant, one of the next figures I intend to purchase.

Six copies of the green T-rex--the four on the left feature the old style head, while the two on the right are the updated version.

Old vs. new sculpt.

Green rex and the 10th anniversary rex.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Three Brachiosaurs--the two on the left are pre-1996, one on the right is more recent--notice how the figure has gotten slightly smaller over time. Still missing from my collection are the green 2007 version and last year's resculpt.

The original version of the Apatosaur and baby

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Old and new Apatosaurus--the new one is in the foreground with its tail raised, old is in the back with its tail lowered.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Variants of the old Apatosaur baby--the one on the right is extremely rare, it's a "gold wash" figure AKA one of the first wave of figures released.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Old baby (left) and new baby (right)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Six versions of the old Parasaurolophus. I think I have the new version, just couldn't find it for this picture.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Four of the original Trike--lots of variation with these guys.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
4 generations of Trikes--the blue/brown is still my favorite

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The original Maiasaura--I forgot I have a third after I took this picture, which is in its original box from ~1996.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
New and old.

One of my most prized possessions, I was lucky enough to meet Jack Horner on my birthday 2 years ago :) He said he'd never autographed one of these before.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Carnegie Protoceratops--still my favorite Carnegie figure.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Original Dimetrodon with the later, larger scale one. I prefer the original.

Fantastic collection Charles! I'm looking forward to seeing more of it. And of course, welcome to the forum!)

The Maiasaura signed by Jack Horner is awesome!! That is just so cool -- signed by the person who discovered the genus. Thank you for sharing that!

I kind of like the old coloring of the Iguanodon. I knew that the recently available model was different, in its painting, from the old one, but I guess I hadn't really seen the old one. It is quite nice.

This is ENORMOUSLY interesting Shocked cheers 

And dangerous for my bank-account Laughing 

The two newer spinosuers went SLAM ! Into my wishlist, and several others !

Like Scott, I am SO impressed by the Maiasaura signed by Jack Horner, and also the really original allosaurus baby. It is the colour that they are in my 1990-catalogue, and I have never seen it "real" before !

AWESOME collection, I am thrilled that you joined this forum Applause Applause
