Our good friends at Jurassic Collectables has something very special to share today with the Jurassic fandom. They have recreated the iconic vibrating water glass from 1993’s Jurassic Park with some assistance from Oscar Award winning Michael Lantieri, who worked on the special effects for the film.
After 25 years, Jurassic Collectables has recreated the famous Jurassic Park vibrating glass of water seen in the Main Road Attack. After sourcing the exact same cup used on screen, Jurassic Collectables contacted Michael Lantieri to find out the exact make & pitch of guitar string and the accompanying hardware.
The project involved Jurassic Collectables building a contraption to keep tension in the wire, allowing vibration to travel from the string to the water. See the video for yourself today on Jurassic Collectables.

Jurassic Park, the 1993 classic film that started it all and spawned four sequels so far with a fifth sequel due in 2021, is set to return to select theaters this September in celebration of the film’s 25th Anniversary. In a report from Entertainment Weekly, Jurassic Park will return in more than 500 theaters nationwide for three special days, Sunday September 16th, Tuesday September 18th and Wednesday September 19th.
It’s been 25 years since the gates of Jurassic Park opened the first time, welcoming viewers into a time-lost amusement park filled with beautiful dinosaurs, terrifying dinosaurs, and soaring John Williams music. To celebrate the big anniversary, Steven Spielberg’s original film will be returning to more than 500 theaters nationwide for three days: Sunday, Sept. 16, Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Wednesday, Sept. 19. Tickets can be purchased online at Fathom Events’ website or at participating theater box offices.
In addition to the seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen, audiences will also get to see a special 17-minute fan film remake of the Steven Spielberg classic. The fan film reportedly was created by Jurassic fans from around the entire world and our guess it is a culmination of all the fan videos that the official website had asked for earlier in the year.
Entertainment Weekly also received an exclusive rare on-set photo from Amblin showing Spielberg, Sam Neill, BD Wong, Richard Attenborough and Jeff Goldblum preparing for the hatchery scene. Please take a look at the exclusive photo below.
Please visit Fathom Events for more information once they post it. Also, make sure to check Fandango and see if your local theater has any showings, as some already have tickets available for purchase.

Another year, another crazy San Diego Comic Con. While Jurassic has never made a peep there as a film itself, its brand partners oftentimes use the event as an exciting chance to show off their current and future merchandise. This year was no different, and while may companies brought their Jurassic World showcase, Mattel easily stole the show.
All eyes have been on Mattel, as they’re the first time a new company took the Jurassic Park core toy license since Kenner brought the line to life in 1993. It’s uncharted waters, but Mattel has shown they’re clearly in command of this diverse and fun property, bringing a toy line to life that not only matches but often exceeds the classic toys so many admire. While the toys have evolved for a new era of play in many regards, they still have the golden triangle of realistic and fun dinosaurs, humans, and vehicles all designed around a consistent scale and competitive price point. Play found a way.
As Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom begins to exit theaters, and wave 3 of the 2018 toys hit shelves, the number one question has been what does the future hold for Jurassic and the toy aisle. Thankfully Mattel answered with their Jurassic World Comic Con panel, where they not only talked deigning the current toy line, but teased what’s to come in the future.
Watch the panel in full below (huge thanks to Sickle_Claw on Twitter!), and read on for our summary and highlights!
One of the largest takeaways from the panel I had was how passionate and knowledgeable the team is about Jurassic Park, and how talented they are as designers. While they were careful not to throw Hasbro under the bus, let’s be honest, the 2015 Hasbro toy line wasn’t good for a plethora of reasons. Not only did Mattel carefully address those issues head on, they aimed far higher, and created a new standard when it comes to Jurassic. Before the toys released this year, I was skeptical, when they were released I was impressed, and watching the whole team talk shop I’m now inspired.
The property genuinely couldn’t be in better hands. So what does the future hold?
The first reveal made prior to the panel was the somewhat stealthy inclusion of Franklin Webb in their diorama display. While he was the only 2019 human part of their core 3.75″ line that they shared, there are surely plenty more on the way – perhaps favorites such as John Parker Hammond and Dr. Henry Wu? Time will tell!
The panel itself primarily focused on the new dinosaur toys of 2019, though they only teased what’s to come rather than showing full looks at the final toys. First up, they promised 16 new species of dinosaurs – this means dinosaurs that have not yet been made by Mattel since they launched the toy line in 2018. There will be far more dinosaur toys once you count the new sculpts of returning dinosaurs, and new paint jobs on previously released toys.
The three new species revealed during the panel are the following: Styracosaurus (All new Savage Strike assortment; $10), Amargasaurus (Action Attack assortment; $20) and the gigantic Brachiosaurus (assortment/price unknown). Yes, for the first time ever the Jurassic toy line is getting not one but two in-scale adult sauropod dinosaurs, which is utterly fantastic. Fans have been asking for a Brachiosaurus for years, and all new fans after seeing Fallen Kingdom have only strengthened the demand.
Take a look at the pictures below, which were mainly limited to teases – but showcase the silhouettes and size of the toys next to a 3.75″ action figure! (Pictures courtesy of Toy Shiz on Instagram)
While they didn’t confirm any other species beyond another new large Tyrannosaurus Rex, buzz leaving San Diego Comic Con suggests fans waiting for a large Indominus Rex will probably be happy. Other rumored new species (from short lived retailer listings) include Dracorex, Plesiosaurus, and Rhamphorhynchus! Although there is no definitive word on their existence, I’d fully expect other Velociraptors such as the respective females from Jurassic Park and JP3 plus Charlie, Delta, and Echo from World.
The panel did not touch on future vehicles, though it seems safe to assume the Ford Explorer Tour Vehicle will be inbound, alongside other classics and new fictional dino-capture themed rides. It remains unconfirmed, but one 2019 vehicle assortment is said to include a human, ATV, and dinosaur which would certainly be an exciting offering!
One of my largest worries for the future toys was the art style. While the majority of the current Mattel toys are wholly Jurassic, a few not based on movie dinosaurs have been more angular and stylized, lending to a more mean or cute cartoony appearance (Proceratosaurus and Dimetrodon for example). It may be too soon to call it, but the Styracosaurus showcased has immediately amended that particular fear and critique – its design would not look out of place roaming alongside the other animals in the films. I’m totally fine seeing new variations of dinosaurs we already know, with uniquely themed designs and colors, but I do prefer they stay within the constraints of the Jurassic style set by Crash McCreery and Stan Winston many years ago.
Moving on from the core 3.75″ line, Mattel announced their new 6″ collectors series, showcasing Owen Grady and Velociraptor Blue from Jurassic World, and Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park. The 6″ toys are a larger format item, with more detailed sculpts and paint applications alongside more articulation for the ultimate control over displaying the figure. Prices and accessories were not announced, but it stands to reason the sets will come with some fun add-ons and be sold at a reasonable price. This line will not replace the core line, but serve as a limited scope series running adjacent to it, primarily aimed at larger format collectors!
While further 6″ dinosaurs and humans were not announced, nor was there talk of vehicles, if these items are successful the range will certainly continue to grow.
Mattel closed out the panel giving away some free toys, including limited-run toys that are all but canceled (incredibly limited numbers made) such as the Indoraptor vs Blue playset, and the Destruct-a-saurs Tyrannosaurus Rex set. Mattel did offer some promising news, saying that most of the Destruct-A-Saurs (previous Toys R Us exclusive line) will see distribution at retailers, so stay tuned for more definitive details about how the 2018 line will continue to expand.
Mattel has spared no expense bringing the Jurassic toys to life, and I am loving everything they’ve cooked up in their labs so far. I cannot wait to see what surprises come in the future (fingers crossed for more collectors aimed 3.75” characters and sets, hatchlings with humans rather than mini-dinos, or even Kenner style collector cards), and am sure whatever is on the horizon will continue to provide quality toys for kids and collectors alike. The diversity of play patterns and innovation within the line is incredible, and has really redefined what quality and affordable prices to expect in the toy isle. Hopefully Mattel does more panels such as this one (and perhaps other subsets of the Jurassic brand can follow their lead), as this was an incredibly exciting look behind the scenes which only further strengthened my interest for the future.

It’s 2018 San Diego Comic Con week, and while Universal Pictures themselves will not be attending the fan favorite convention, Jurassic will still have a significant presence with various brand partners.
Arguably the most exciting Jurassic World brand partner is Mattel, who has an excellent array of toys in stores now based upon Fallen Kingdom, as well as the Target exclusive Legacy Collection featuring classic Jurassic Park characters. While Wave 2 is just hitting stores now, with wave 3 on the horizon, Mattel has plenty more to come, and are already eager to give fans at SDCC an exclusive look at exciting new products, including some items from their 2019 range!
Further, it will be your first chance to get your hands on products not yet in stores with exciting giveaways, including a one of a kind chance to get a hold of rare unreleased products that did not make it to final production! Yes – you read that right – toys that are to remain unreleased will be given away in limited numbers– holy grail’s for collectors. While Mattel has remained tight lipped on what those items are, they’re sure to excite and are not to be missed.
So how do you attend the panel, and when is it?We have the exclusive first details:
The panel is this Saturday (July 21st, 2018) at 11am – 12pm PST and will be hosted at Mattel’s San Diego Comic Con booth. Occupancy is limited to 100 people, and tickets will be given away at the very location the morning of. Get there EARLY to secure your tickets and seats – the panel is not to be missed, and features various members of the Jurassic design team, and has some GIGANTIC reveals planned.

Remind me to thank John for a lovely weekend. Wow! Last weekend at Universal Studios Hollywood, thousands of fans from around the world attended an official gathering for Jurassic Park which celebrates it’s 25th birthday this year.
Universal Pictures, the theme park team, and all of the partners and collaborators involved staged a fantastic and exciting event which span across the entire weekend. We were treated to a theatrical screening of the new 4K release of Jurassic Park, panels with the filmmakers and talent, trivia and costume contests, themed food, all within the lowerlot at the park.
Not only were multiple partners there showcasing their video games, merchandise and experiences, but Colin Trevorrow himself introduced the IMAX screening of Jurassic Park by showing the opening scene of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which received fantastic reviews!
If you got to your screen early enough you would also catch the remastered original teaser trailer and theatrical trailer for Jurassic Park, which are pretty amazing to see at such high quality. Hopefully these will be made available soon! We couldn’t resist our own ‘reaction’ video for the opening scene of Fallen Kingdom, considering just how excited it made us:
From Friday night to Sunday night fans of all ages celebrated their love for the movie and the franchise itself, and were able to experience everything Universal Studios Hollywood has to offer.
Jurassic Park: The Ride remained open the entire time and some of us experienced it for the first time! Ryan also lost his hat.
The highlight of the event for all of the three nights were the live panels, hosted by Colin Trevorrow and featuring both cast and crew from the franchise. Panels are a fan celebration standard often associated with Comic Con that Jurassic has been devoid of until now.
It’s not often that fans can listen to the talent that brought the movies together sit and discuss the inner details of what it takes to make these movies, and these panels fulfilled that craving. Hopefully these panels are the start of a more in depth and fan community centered focus for the Jurassic franchise moving forward.
When we first arrived into the lower lot our attention was caught by Dennis Muren, who was standing below the gates in anticipation for the panel. Growing up with Jurassic Park and watching the behind the scenes documentaries meant fans like us admired the technical and creative talent behind the movie, so we introduced ourselves to visual effects supervisor Dennis Muren and expressed our love for his work!
Celebration events like this are very new to the Jurassic Park fandom but provide the ability for fans to meet their heroes; the people that inspired them. We captured the panels via a live stream for any fans that couldn’t make it out to the event, and we have embedded those below!
Friday 11 May
Colin Trevorrow w/ Dean Cundey, John T. Kretchmer, Dennis Muren
Saturday 12 May
Colin Trevorrow w/ Laura Dern, Frank Marshall, Phil Tippett and Jack Horner
Sunday 13 May
Colin Trevorrow w/ Jeff Goldblum, John Rosengrant, John T. Kretchmer, joined by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and Gareth Edwards
With numerous stories from the making of Jurassic Park being shared on stage, the panels were a huge hit with the many fans that attended and hopefully we will see more in the future. It’s a fascinating way for the filmmakers and cast members to share their memories from the movies, especially now that the franchise has become so prominent in pop culture.
Throughout the three events those attending could make their way to the Activity Center, which hosted a wealth of original props and costumes from the movies on display, and featured booths from the various Universal Pictures partners, showcasing their products which included video games, collectables, VR experiences and more!
Jurassic Park: Danger! Board Game
The Ravensburger and Forrest-Pruzan Creative team were there hosting gameplays of their new Jurassic Park board game which we filmed below! We partnered with Ravensburger to giveaway two copies of the game during our live stream, with the winners being announced in the video on the right below. Huge thanks to Florian, Lindsay and Michele!
You can read more about the Jurassic Park: Danger! board game here.
Jurassic Park: The Chaos Gene
While very little is known about this upcoming board game, the team from Mondo Games were showing off their concept and allowing fans to signup for future updates on the game.
We’re expecting more information on the game this year to coincide with a release – be sure to read everything we know about the game here!
Jurassic World: Evolution
This one was definitely a surprise for fans – Frontier Developments setup gaming stations at their booth allowing fans to play the upcoming park building simulator game!
The demo they had allowed roughly ten minutes of gameplay, including sending your ACU team to tranquillise a dinosaur and then move it to another area in the park. It gave a good opportunity to learn about how the game functions and how beautiful it looks!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Toyline
While Mattel weren’t on-hand at their booth, the display they had created perfectly showcased their upcoming toyline for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and they even had a number of the Legacy Collection toys on display too!
We love the toy line and have more reviews coming soon, so stay tuned!
Jurassic World: Blue VR Experience
Felix & Paul Studios
This one was not one to miss! Announced a little while back, this VR experience for Oculus features Blue on Isla Nublar after the events of Jurassic World, and shows her reaction to the impending danger that features in Fallen Kingdom. The whole experience is beautifully directed and animated, and may be one of the most magical looks at dinosaurs since the very first film in 1993.
We had the unique chance to go hands on with BOTH episodes while we were in Los Angeles, and cannot stress enough how incredible of an experience it was. Don’t sleep on these VR episodes – they’re a new form of Jurassic storytelling that invoke all the staples you love from the films, and could very much be the future way to tell side stories in the universe (or explore the park itself!).
Jurassic World: Alive
For fans of Pokemon Go, the team at Ludia Games (who were behind Jurassic Park: Builder and Jurassic World: Builder for iOS and Android) revealed their new game to fans which allows you to go out and capture dinosaurs!
The game ties in with the upcoming movie’s viral marketing, the Dinosaur Protection Group, and is available on both iOS and Android devices now!
Jurassic World: Pinball
The team at Zen Pinball had a couple if iPads setup allowing you to play their Jurassic Park themed pinball game! This one was a lot of fun and will be an easy winner for the game of choice when you’re waiting for your flight…
The entire partner booth area was setup with love for Jurassic in mind – with a jungle surrounding and the theme music playing, fans were in their element! The partner booths led to the main display which featured the Jurassic Park 29 Jeep which was seen in Jurassic World, the Gyrosphere and a couple of dinosaurs.
The Theme Park
A number of times at the event, people would ask us why the event was being held in Universal’s Hollywood Park as opposed to the much larger Orlando Park. And to every person we gave the same response: Orlando is a theme park that doubles as a Film Studio. Hollywood is a Film Studio that doubles as a Theme Park. And it was at this very Studio that Jurassic Park was filmed, edited and evolved.
The event was all about being able to reach out and touch the things that we had only been available for us to view on the screen until now, and that’s what made Hollywood the perfect venue.
When boarding the tram to the theater at end of the first night, the attendant pointed out that if we were stood exactly where we were right at that moment, 22 years ago, we would be seeing the RV trailers from The Lost World dangling off of the adjacent car park.
Working with the Jurassic Park Motor Pool we were able to organize a number of the member’s vehicles present at the event for photo opportunities, and some fans went even further! A few years ago Franck Galiègue purchased a screen-used vehicle from The Lost World: Jurassic Park… none other than the RV trailers that are pushed over the cliff by the two Rex’s!
Don’t worry – Alex is fine, he was just excited.
This was an incredible vehicle to see in person not only due to its sheer size, but because this vehicle featured in one of the greatest sequences constructed in this franchise, and is often a fan favourite. Thanks Franck for making this happen! Be sure to follow the team’s progress.
Trivia and Costume Contest
Activities happened all night in the park and shortly following the panels was the Live Trivia contest, in which fans could compete against each other over knowledge of the franchise!
Many fans also dressed up as their favourite characters from the movies – with Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler making regular appearances. People put so much effort into their various costumes and outfits, it was amazing to see!
The event was a blast and was an incredible way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park! Universal Studios Hollywood spared no expense with this weekend long event, and our team loved meeting so many Jurassic fans from across the world!
A few fans were lucky enough to meet and greet Colin Trevorrow at the event, and the members of our team that attended got a photo!
Stay tuned for more and if you were one of the unlucky fans who wasn’t able to make it out to Hollywood for the event, we hope you enjoyed our coverage! A big thanks to Universal Pictures and the various teams involved in bringing this event together – it was a blast!
