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.
Only four human figures (or five if you include Omega T-Rex’s escape pod) were released in the Chaos Effect toy line. Ian Malcolm was one of them. Continue reading
The Canyon Tyrannosaurus Rex is part of the Jurassic Park III Camo-X-Treme line. This was a toy line of JP3 dinosaurs repainted in remarkable nature inspired colours. Continue reading
These Jurassic World 3D puzzles were produced by RMS / Grafix. Continue reading
I found these these 3 Jurassic World plush dinosaurs at my local drugstore “Kruidvat” earlier today. Continue reading
When the Jurassic Park III toys were released, I never really cared much for the Re-Ak At-Ak T-Rex. Maybe because it was such a departure from the Kenner style dinosaurs that were released for the previous toy lines. However, when I got a loose copy in a bigger lot, I started to appreciate this sculpt a bit better. 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
The Jurassic Park series 1 Robert Muldoon toy was released in 1993. It was designed based on early sketches for the character, long before the Bob Peck casting was done. This explains why the face and body sculpt is way off compared to the movie version. (This was kinda corrected in the series 2 toy line)
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.
