Matt Martyniuk has this to say in response to the question when posed at Wikipedia several months ago:

Could be a number of factors. Among them is that it's Bob Bakker working on it, and he's not exactly prolific with formal publications. But these types of specimens take time. Heck that hadrosaur mummy Leonardo still hasn't been described. Or Jane the juvenile T. rex/Nanotyrannus. Not to mention the Hell Creek caenagnathid that's been the entire basis for all reconstructions of that family since the '90s based only on online photos. I remember waiting over 15 years for the description of what eventually was named Mapusaurus (discovered and the subject of rumors shortly after the description of Giganotosaurus in 1995 or therabouts, described in 2007). So I wouldn't hold your breath.

Also-- you might try contacting the museum where he's curator to see if you can have your questions passed along to him-- he just might be more than happy to tell you all about it!

I tried contacting one museum, but they never responded. It might've been the wrong museum though

Did you try the phone? It's harder to ignore a phone call.
