Mattel follows Hasbro’s example by releasing dinosaur blind bags. These bags contain a random plastic dinosaur from the Jurassic Park universe. Continue reading
The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom toys are slowly showing up in stores all around the world.
Here in Belgium I was lucky to find some sets at a local toy shop. They only had a few items, leaving the shelves empty after I was done shopping…
Prices here seem to be much higher compared to the ones advertised on Mattel’s USA website, some twice as much. Here’s what I paid:
Super Colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex: EUR 84.99 ($103)
Trash ‘n Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex: EUR 41.99 ($52)
Action Attack Stegosaurus and Carnotaurus: EUR 24.99 ($30)
Jurassic World mini dino blind bag: EUR 2.99 ($3.5)
Jurassic World Matchbox: EUR 2.99 ($3.5)
I’ll go deeper into reviewing every item individually but my general impression of this toy line is more than positive. The dinosaurs not only look great, they also feel great. The plastic doesn’t feel cheap or flimsy like Hasbro’s last attempt. The sculpts and paint jobs look great. Although they’re not 100% movie accurate, they have a strong resemblance and are nicely consistent with the rest of the Mattel Jurassic World toys.
These Jurassic World 3D puzzles were produced by RMS / Grafix. Continue reading

Hands down the Dilophosaurus Rex is Hasbro’s weirdest Jurassic Park-themed toy EVER. If you thought the T-rex from the “Bashers and Biters” line was awful, well take a look at this monstrosity. Continue reading

One of the Jurassic World wave 3 toys is the repainted T-Rex. On the promotional artwork released by Hasbro, the Rex sported an almost fluorescent green color. It quickly gained the nickname Mountain Dew Rex. Continue reading
I’ve been a dinosaur fan since I was a little kid. When Jurassic Park got released when I was 12 years old, my whole world got turned upside down. I started asking Jurassic Park toys, at first just to play with, but not long after I grew out of my “playing phase” and started collecting. That’s why the early toys I got are still in pretty good condition.
Today is the official release date of Jurassic World on Blu-Ray here in Belgium, and many countries around the world. I rushed to my local Carrefour supermarket (it’s our Walmart or Target) right after work to get my copy.
The 25th edition of the FACTS convention take place this weekend in Ghent, Belgium. FACTS is basically your typical comic books convention, with lots of cosplaying, expensive merchandising and Star Wars.
This year Jurassic World was well represented. The huge iconic gate was recreated by prop replica group. Animatronic dinosaurs were placed in front of them and were a very popular photo location, with a queue all day long.
Earlier today I found the Hasbro Jurassic World blind bags at Toy Champ, a toy store chain in Belgium and Holland. They had two boxes with blind bags and are 2,99 EUR each.
T-Rex Lockdown is a playset featuring the Jurassic World gate and a Tyrannosaurus Rex figure. The set is clearly inspired by the Jurassic Park III Raptor Attack set, which in return re-used the accessoires of the Jurassic Park Command Compound from 1993.
