Jurassic Park female leads

Hasbro’s Jurassic Park ladies

Hasbro doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to releasing toys based on female leads from various movie franchises (they seem to fix this though with the new wave of Star Wars toy line). Jurassic Park is no exception. Continue reading Hasbro’s Jurassic Park ladies

Jurassic Park Dinosaurs: Triceratops and Velociraptor

Jurassic Park Dinosaurs: Triceratops and Velociraptor

My latest eBay purchases are these two: Triceratops and Velociraptor from the 1999 Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs line.

I got them from 2 separate auctions and probably overpaid slightly, but you don’t find them MOC that often any more. These are actually my first MOC JP: Dinosaurs, because at that time I decided to invest in the older Jurassic Park toys that were never released here in Belgium, like the Gallimimus, Capture Cruiser and Utahraptor.

Jurassic Park series 2 card back

Jurassic Park series 2 card back

The Jurassic Park toy line proved very successful for Kenner, so they went ahead with a second line that featured more dinosaurs (many of which that were not attached to the movie), updated action figures to resemble the actors in the movie better and a whole new line of action figures called the Dino-Trackers (the good guys) and the Evil Raiders (the bad guys).

The Lost World - Electronic Velociraptor

The Lost World: Electronic Velociraptor

The electronic Velociraptor from the The Lost World: Jurassic Park was released in selected countries along with the electronic Parasaurolophus.

In my opinion this is one weird looking Velociraptor.  Almost everything about it is out of proportion. It’s legs are too short, the arms are too long and it’s body is way too big. The colours are completely off as well.

Jurassic Park series 1 Robert Muldoon

Jurassic Park series 1 Robert Muldoon

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)

Jurassic World Dilophosaurus

Jurassic World Dilophosaurus

Dilophosaurus is one of my favorite Jurassic Park characters. I see her as the Boba Fett of the Jurassic Park Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately she only appeared in the first movie and had a small cameo in Jurassic World. But that didn’t stop Hasbro from producing different toys based on Dilophosaurus since 1993.

Thanks to that small cameo, Hasbro went ahead with a whole new sculpt for their Growlers line.
