Check Out Every New Dinosaur in the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer!

You’ve no doubt seen the trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – but just what dinosaurs were on display, and what can we glean from their visual depictions? First, let’s watch the trailer again:

Things move pretty fast, but we’ve poured through the trailer frame by frame. Take a walk through the park and learn all about the dinosaurs in the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel – did you spot them all?

Baryonyx

First referenced on the park map in Jurassic Park, this bipedal carnivorous dinosaur has never appeared in a Jurassic film prior. The Baryonyx is a cousin species to the Spinosaurus, and stood about 10 feet tall and 30 feet long – the real prehistoric animal likely lived off of a diet of fish, but still would have been deadly to cross paths with. InGen’s creation seems bulkier, with a shorter neck and smaller arms, but makes up for it in pure, mean, crocodilian attitude.

Brachiosaurus

The iconic gentle giant of Jurassic Park returns in all her original glory. The most recognizable Sauropod of the franchise towers over the other animals of park, reaching heights of well over 30 feet. Brachiosaurus was absent in the fourth Jurassic film, and while it made an appearance in Jurassic Park 3, it looked quite different.

Strangely it was not part of the species list in Jurassic World, though we know previous populations existed on Isla Nublar.

Styracosaurus/Sinoceratops/?

 

Blink and you’ll miss it! Did you catch the second ceratopsian to appear in a Jurassic film? It remains unclear what species this actually is, but Styracosaurus and Sinoceratops are the two most likely candidates. Unlike Triceratops, neither Styracosaurus nor Sinoceratops have been featured in a Jurassic Park film prior, nor have they ever been mentioned as a species in previous films (though Styrcaosaurus made an appearance in a early JP3 script). The real versions of these herbivores could grow up to 18-22 feet long, but were gentle giants, using their strong, sturdy cheek teeth to assist with grinding up fibrous plants.

It’s worth noting we initially heard rumors the iconic and beloved Pachyrhinosaurus was in this movie – but it is clearly not the dinosaur on display here. Don’t take our word for it, just asking any dinosaur loving three year old. Perhaps the species changed to what is likely the Sinoceratops later on – we’re eager to discover what species this is either way!

Carnotaurus

The Carnotaurus has long been a fan favorite of Jurassic Park fans dating back to its appearance in Michael Crichton’s ‘The Lost World’ novel. Smaller than a T-Rex, this carnivore is well known for having horns atop its head, a long lean neck, and incredibly tiny arms. Much like many of the other new dinosaurs, Carnotaurus was never known to be on Isla Nublar.

In ‘The Lost World’ novel, the Carnotaurus had camouflage abilities, which were eventually used as a trait of the Indominus Rex in Jurassic World. Ironically the Carnotaurus is actually one of the DNA components of the Indominus Rex, giving the animal its horns. There has been talk that Jurassic film makers have held back incorporating this animal in past films because of Disney’s use of of it in the film ‘Dinosaur’ and as the main antagonist in its Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom, however it seems Jurassic has come to reclaim its namesake.

Gorgosaurus/Albertosaurus/Allosaurus/?

The dinosaur on display above is another mystery, but we’re favoring members of Allosauridae due its long three fingered hands, even if its head more closely resembles members of the Tyrannosauridae family. For the time being, we’ll assume it’s an Allosaurus.

The Allosaurus was featured briefly as promotional material in Jurassic World, appearing briefly in an image of the Holoscape interface at the Innovation Center, but failed to appear in the flesh. However, it was never a species on Isla Nublar in Jurassic Park nor Jurassic World.

The carnivorous “different lizard” averaged 28 feet in length, though evidence suggests they could have reached lengths of over 38 feet. Experts report that Allosaurs lived in dangerous lives – many remains displayed in museums include smashed shoulder blades and broken ribs, suggesting that their interactions with others of their own species were largely aggressive. Will we see that aggression in Fallen Kingdom? It seems so.

Baby Blue

While not entirely a new dinosaur, this depiction is brand new – we see Blue as an adorable baby Raptor. This is only the second time we have seen a juvenile Velociraptor, and baby Blue is clearly older than the hatchling in Jurassic Park. At this point its unclear how these ‘flashbacks’ fit into the movie, but we’re interested!

Compsognathus

Last but not least, we have the return of the Compys – first introduced in The Lost World, these small green opportunistic scavengers have been a longtime fan favorite (Just don’t tell Dieter Stark, who was eaten alive by them after falling down a hill). While Compsognathus have never been referenced as a species on Isla Nublar in any of the films, they were present in the original novel, bred to eat the dung of the many large dinosaurs around the island.

Considering the ruined state of Isla Nublar in Fallen Kingdom, these scavengers are perfect fit for the film, and we’re thrilled they’re back.

What do you think of the new dinosaurs in Fallen Kingdom, and their designs? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to stay tuned for all the latest Fallen Kingdom news!

About Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stars Pratt and Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. They are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.

The First Listings of Jurassic Park POP Toys by Funko Have Arrived, But Ellie Sattler is Not Included

Funko POP figures are all the rage, and cover almost every popular property you can imagine – so for years fans have questioned why they haven’t done Jurassic Park. Thankfully, a few months back, Universal Pictures shared that Funko was a partner for the Jurassic World license, which includes all 5 films. Fans rejoiced.

“We’ll discuss sexism in survival situations when I get back…”

Since then, the first listings have appeared online, and while the lineup is certainly exciting, its missing a pivotal character. Laura Dern’s Dr. Ellie Sattler. It’s a disappointing trend that toy companies tend to omit female characters, but seeing it from Funko, who make lineups for other properties that included even the most forgettable of throwaway characters is extra frustrating. Especially when Ellie is one of the leads, and the only member of the main trio missing.

Jurassic Park created an incredibly strong character with Ellie Sattler, who served as role model for boys and girls alike. It’s not often summer blockbusters can inspire with a strong female character, who kicks ass, takes names, and isn’t there to serve as a prop for male heroes to display. So where the hell is her Funko POP – especially after campaigns likes #WheresRey made so much noise?

This is a disservice to all fans, but especially the female fans, who so often do not get their fair shake in representation.

The franchise is known for its girl power, all the dinosaurs are born as female (until they’re sometimes not), plus it features other strong leads like Sarah Harding played by Julianne Moore (or gives supporting characters like Lex the chance to shine and save the day). It’s no surprise the film series has a very large female fanbase, both in audience and community members – for instance, 48% of Jurassic World’s box office viewership was female on opening weekend.

As it stands, the list of Jurassic Park POP’s hitting to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration are as follows:

Dr. Ian Malcolm – $14.99
Dr. Alan Grant – $14.99
John Hammond – $14.99
Dennis Nedry – $14.99
Velociraptor – $14.99
Dilophosaurus – $14.99
Tyrannosaurus Rex – $14.99
Jurassic Park Jeep Vehicle – $34.99

The lineup releases March 15th, 2018 and for now, no images are yet available – but stay tuned, it likely wont be long until they are formally unveiled.

Hopefully this is a flub, and Ellie is on the way – it’s quite possible the website somehow failed to list her Funko POP alongside the others. Though given the current evidence, it’s quite suspect that the one missing character is the only female lead. At least Mattel has a Dr. Sattler (and Claire Dearing!) on the way. If it turns out Ellie is indeed part of the main line, and not locked away as an exclusive or excluded entirely, we’ll happily eat our words and update the article. Prove us wrong, Funko.

Prove us wrong.

UPDATE: The First Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer Probably Arriving December 7th!

UPDATE TO PREVIOUS STORY

False alarm on the previous story that the first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer was to arrive this Thursday, November 30th. Universal Pictures have since clarified that the trailer will NOT be arriving this Thursday. The promo video in the story below (now removed due to a copyright claim from Universal) was released early, by accident. The assets have since been removed from the press server.

The trailer IS close, perhaps a week or two away. Odds are these ads were not meant to be released until next week, which puts the trailer release date on the 7th (which we revealed on our latest Podcast) We will keep you updated as we learn more!

The original story is as follows:

It’s official – the first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer arrives this Thursday, November 30th. Universal has announced that the very first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer will debut during Thursday Night Football on NBC (Cowboys vs Redskins).

Universal took to their press servers to upload a series of TV spots teasing the trailer reveal, all stating that the trailer arrives Thursday. As the air/upload date is not embargoed, it is safe to assume it does indeed mean this Thursday – although we had previously heard it was aiming for the Thursday night slot of December 7th, so while the early date is surprising, the debut format is much expected!

This trailer announcement comes shortly after Colin Trevorrow teased the first footage of baby Blue from Fallen Kingdom, taking the internet by storm. Stay tuned – more teases and updates may be coming shortly.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow for Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Pratt and Howard are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the team of filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Trailer Launching After December 1st with Contest to See it Early!

Update: When we ran the article, the contest specified the prize being a chance to see the Jurassic World 2 trailer early. It has been updated to say a ‘Jurassic Experience’ – though we’re comfortable in assuming the trailer is part of that experience.

While the exact online debut date for the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer remains burried, we know it will arrive no later than December 13th with Star Wars The Last Jedi. Now thanks to an official contest being hosted by the Mexican branch of Universal Pictures via their Jurassic World Facebook page, we know it will come no sooner than December 1st.

This information comes via a new contest to see the trailer early, and the last chance to enter is December 1st – therefore, the trailer will not hit publicly prior.

To enter in the contest you must live in Mexico and follow the contests other terms and conditions. The contest requires players to rapidly enter answers for 10 Jurassic Park related questions – so good look to all those involved! We suspect if you’re visiting our site, you have more than a good chance to get all of them correct. At this point, it is unclear how winners will view the trailer and if travel is involved – however, there will be 150 lucky Jurassic fans.

While there is no evidence of similar contests in the US, UK, or other territories, we suspect they will see similar announcements soon. We’ve reached to Universal to find out if other countries will have a chance to enter, but have not received a reply as of running the article.

The Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom trailer has some competition in early December, as the Avengers Infinity War trailer is rumored to release December 4th. It seems unlikely that the Fallen Kingdom trailer will drop prior, as the contest ends on the 1st – so perhaps the official trailer debut date for will be near the 6th or the 7th, with the early viewing beforehand.

Stay tuned – we will update the website as we get more information about the trailers release date, and if other countries are launching similar contests.

McDonalds to Offer Jurassic World Happy Meal Toy This December!

Celebrate Christmas and the Holiday Season this year with a Jurassic World Happy Meal toy from McDonalds. This upcoming range of toys only offers one Jurassic World item, which is part of the McDonalds ‘Holiday Express’ fictional train lineup. Check out the picture below!

The Jurassic World Happy Meal toy is simple but cute, featuring a Tyrannosaurus Rex under Jurassic Park gates, atop a train car. It’s curious that the gates are clearly Jurassic Park, not world, and use the red font face, while the train car features a Jurassic World logo. With the disjointed branding, this perhaps remains the best way to hit two birds with one stone, and celebrate the legacy of the franchise under the new name.

Other Universal Pictures films join the Holiday Express such as Minions and The Secret Life of Pets – but it’s not just limited to Universal. My Little Pony, Transformers, Barbie and Hot Wheels also join the fun, making this one of the more cross branded Jurassic marketing outputs in recent times.

McDonald’s previously promoted Jurassic Park in 1993, with a series of collectors cups sporting much loved artwork based upon the iconic film. These cups today remain a sought after collector item, namely for how great the unique artwork really was. Check out the ‘dino size’ promotion below!

Perhaps this is a sign of things to come, and McDonald’s will offer a fully featured promotional lineup for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom in June. While it was recently reported on Reddit that Dairy Queen would return to the Park in 2018, it’s very possible they’re one of many fast food retailers joining in on the dinosaur craze.

Will you be picking up the Happy Meal toy? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for the latest news!

Universal Studios Japan Announces New Parade Featuring Jurassic World!

When it comes to Jurassic Park, Universal Studios Japan gets all the good stuff. Their dinosaurs look more accurate to the films, their encounters are more robust, and their rides are newer, with more variety. So it comes as no surprise that Universal Studios Japan is getting an epic new parade with Jurassic World as a headliner. While details are still few, the piece of key art released paints an exciting picture.

Read the first details about the Universal Spectacle Night Parade in the press release below!

Universal Studios Japan will introduce a new large-scale project in 2018, the world’s first next-generation parade, “Universal Spectacle Night Parade – Best of Hollywood”, which will revolutionize the traditional experience.

Universal Studios Japan continues to invest in new experience to bring park guests innovative entertainment.

The “Universal Spectacle Night Parade – Best of Hollywood” will celebrate 4 of Hollywood’s most fan favorite films, including “Harry Potter” “Minions,” “Jurassic World”, and making their Park debut in the parade “Transformers”, the born-in- Japan entertainment brand with its popular toys, games, animation and feature films.

J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World and its captivating magic, the Illimination’s “Minions” and their mayhem, theenormous robots “Transformers”, and the realism of the “Jurassic World” dinosaurs come together to be recreated in a continually changing entertainment spectacle. Park guests will be completely enveloped and fully immersed in this brand-new and continually changing entertainment, which far surpasses the traditional theme park parade experience.

The impossible is made possible with perfect synchronization of projection mapping, which completely cover the surroundings, floats incorporating dynamic movements, high quality film lighting, sweeping cinematic score and performances by live entertainers through the use of “Show Orchestration,” an outstanding technology specially developed by Universal Creative.

Followers of our website will no doubt recognize that Tyrannosaurus Rex render as one of the new pieces of key art being circulated for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – and yes, it appears that the second T.rex in the background is another new render from the upcoming sequel. More eagle eyed readers may also recognize the rocky mountain in the backdrop from the early ‘JW2’ licensing expo banners spotted earlier this year. The red glow from behind also seems to be a hint of volcanic activity, which may well factor into the parade itself.

Considering that they keyart heavily borrows from the upcoming sequel, it is very possible the events showcased in the parade are inspired by Fallen Kingdom. Could that mean a Tyrannosaurus chasing a Gyropshere scene will be featured – or is that simply creative liberty taken while creating the parade? Time will tell!

The final key note of importance is this is the first time the parks have used the branding of ‘Jurassic World’ rather than ‘Jurassic Park’. While it’s only for a parade at this time, it may be a sign of future things to come.

Are you excited for the new parade – and do you hope it comes to the other Universal parks, such at the one in Florida? Sound off in the comments below, and let us know. As always, stay tuned for all of the latest news!

Official One Pager Suggests Jake Johnson Reprising Role in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom!

UPDATE: Universal Pictures replied to our inquiry, stating that Jake Johnson’s inclusion was a “typo” and have revised the document to remove him. While there is enough ambiguity in their reply to allow room for his return, I’m not personally holding my breath. However, it was recently pointed out that he was also included as part of the cast in the Jurassic World Evolution press release from Frontier Developments in August.

It sounds like Jake Johnson will be sitting Fallen Kingdom out, but I suppose this mystery won’t be truly solved until June 2018. Original article below:

Cutting straight to the chase – this is odd. Earlier today, Universal Pictures uploaded a new “One Pager” to press asset website EPK.TV. This document, embedded below, contains the same information released when Fallen Kingdom’s title and poster were released – with one caveat. The document has Jake Johnson listed as a cast member.

Jake Johnson of course played the fan favorite control room technician, Lowery, who had an affinity for collectibles and sarcasm. There is a part of me who wants to see Lowery return, though that is mostly driven by my liking of Jake Johnson in almost every role he has played. The other part of me is worried it may feel too forced – I’m a fan of letting new characters thrive in sequels, while not getting bogged down with writing every fan favorite back in.

jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-jurassic1

Of course, as stated prior, this whole thing is odd. Prior to this press release, which technically contains nothing new other than Jake Johnson’s inclusion, we have heard nothing about his involvement with the film. It is very possible his inclusion is an error on Universal’s part, and Jake Johnson has not returned in Fallen Kingdom. Conversely, if true, this is perhaps the strangest way to ‘announce’ his involvement – normally more fanfare is included, or at the very least, a trade like Variety or The Hollywood Reporter breaks the news.

Stay tuned – we’re going to dig into this and find out definitively if Jake Johnson has returned in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. Perhaps he simply has a small cameo role, like many returning cast members in the Jurassic Park sequels had.

New Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Banner Premieres at Brand Licensing Expo

The marketing campaign for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is finally kicking into gear. Last night Universal Pictures held private parties to kick off BLE 2017 celebrating their numerous brands and upcoming films, Jurassic World being one of them. These parties were held at the Aqua Kyoto and London Palladium, both in London. Word is both Colin Trevorrow and Bryce Dallas Howard made a surprise visit, and one would presume showed off footage from the latest sequel, perhaps even an early cut of the trailer – however, that was all behind closed doors, and will remain a mystery.

Thankfully, the public show floor of Brand Licensing Europe in the Olympia London has been decked out with Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom displays, and we can take a look in all its glory!

The incredible promotional banner above comes courtesy of @MegaPowerBrasil on Twitter, and features a great look at the new Fallen Kingdom Tyrannosaurus Rex and Blue. While the image of Owen is a cool inclusion, it’s actually a picure from the first Jurassic World, reused in this new banner. Odds are if a similar banner hits theaters, it will feature Owen in his new Fallen Kingdom costume instead.

This isn’t the first time we have seen that Tyrannosaurus render – it’s been spotted on recent merchandise items from catalogs that we previously reported on. However, this is certainly our best look at it – and look at all that detail! It seems Universal is also offering a photo-op with the keyart via a green screen, which is demonstrated by this post on Instagram:

That background is looking quite ominous and volcanic. Speaking of which, another trade show recently occurred, and while no images surfaced from the show floor, this post did surface via Karton PP. There is no mistaking that artwork as anything but an erupting volcano!

Digression aside, we’re not done with what BLE 2017 has to offer. Universal’s booth features another Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom display, and this one is epic. Universal Pictures have offered a very cool photo opportunity, recreating a small diorama of the first promotional still from the film, bringing in a large Ceratopsian skull for maximum wow factor!

What’s curious, is the skull is different than the one on display in the official still – while that one was a “Fake-a-saurus” version of Triceratops, this seems to very much be a real dinosaur, perhaps a Pentaceratops. Did they change the skull on display in the film – or was that unique skull simply not available to put on display? Either way, this is a very cool setup and I would love to see this used widespread as a promotional standee. The photo-op potential is fantastic!

Of course, as of now no new Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Merchandise has been revealed, nor has anything for Jurassic Park 25th anniversary. However, Universal just announced they are partnering with Funko, Build a Bear, and many other vendors for the Jurassic brand, and it’s quite possible Brand Licensing Europe may still bring an official first look.

Stay tuned for the latest news, and as always, let us know what you think in the comments below!

Universal Announces New Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom License Partners Including Funko and More!

Universal Pictures announced new license partners and further elaborated on their plans for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom at Brand Licensing Europe 2017 today. While it was announced last year that Mattel had acquired the master license from Hasbro, LEGO maintaining their involvement was only corroborated by leaks, but this press release confirmed that and much more.

Most excitingly, the announcement confirmed the addition of FUNKO as a partner. Yes, it seems likely Jurassic Park Pop! Vinyls are on their way. Read the press release below (Via Toynews-Online):

Universal Brand Development has announced the global merchandising program for Jurassic Word sequel, The Fallen Kingdom, with toys hitting retail in Spring 2018.

Master global toy partner Mattel and LEGO Systems will lead the retail roll-out with toys across a variety of play patterns and age segments, additional toy, role play and costume licensees supporting the second film include Funko, Build-A-Bear, Rubies, Wowee and more.

“The Jurassic World franchise has always had huge cross-generational family appeal, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom promises to be one of the biggest movie and merchandising events of 2018,” said Vince Klaseus, president of Universal Brand Development.

“Following the success of 2015, we’ve been hard at work to build out the largest Jurassic World program to-date to meet the increasing demands from fans, as well as reach new audiences around the world – demonstrating the global appeal of this 365 mega-franchise.”

Master global toy partner Mattel and LEGO Systems will lead the retail roll-out with toys across a variety of play patterns and age segments, additional toy, role play and costume licensees supporting the second film include Funko, Build-A-Bear, Rubies, Wowee and more.

“This will be a focused UK campaign with opportunities to maximise the popularity of the franchise throughout 2018, starting with a focus on the classic movie and moving into activity for the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, followed by back to school and subsequently the DVD release,” said Hannah Mungo, country director UK & Ireland Consumer Products at NBC Universal Brand Development.

Toynews International also covered the announcement, providing further details:

Other multi-tiered and cross-category licensees involve Apparel and home/décor (H&M, Freeze, 5th Sun, Issac Morris, GBG, Fast Forward and Franco), Food, beauty and stationary/expressions (Kelloggs, Ferrero, Jelly Belly, PEZ, GBG Beauty, Party City, Innovative Designs, DecoPac and American Greetings) and Gaming and digital – [including the] recently debuted Jurassic World Evolution from Frontier Development, with additional gaming titles and platforms from other partners to be announced soon

Yes, you read that right – additional gaming titles will be announced soon! Could the long anticipated, on-again off-again, Jurassic World Survivor still be extant and waiting to be announced? Time will tell! As for the other brands, Kellogs is making a return, so expect more fruit snacks – and of course Fifth Sun will continue to bring fun Jurassic graphic tee’s to market. We previously covered PEZ as a partner, but it’s great to see some official recognition within this information drop.

Overall, Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is shaping up to be a huge global event that will bring tons of cool products to store shelves and our homes. You better start saving money, because between Mattel, LEGO, and now Funko, it will be hard to do anything but spare no expense. Don’t think you have much time to save either – while Fallen Kingdom merch hits shelves April 16th, Jurassic Park 25th anniversary will likely kick off this January!

Funko Pop Stranger Things assortment

Stay tuned: today marks the first day of BLE 2017, and it’s possible some of these great new products may be on display and announced as the show kicks off! And as always, be sure to sound off in the comments below and let us know what you want to see from new partners such as Funko!
