Mattel Reveals Jurassic Park John Hammond Toy Exclusive to San Diego Comic Con 2019!

At long last, John Hammond can welcome you to Jurassic Park in toy form. Just announced, Mattel has revealed their Jurassic World Legacy Collection John Hammond pack. Sporting incredible Jurassic Park art in the form of the iconic gates as a sleeve, the packaging then opens up to reveal Hammond sealed inside a Legacy Collection box, packed alongside an egg incubator with the hatching baby Velociraptor.

Check it out below, and read on for how to pre-order yours!

Relive nostalgic, iconic film moments from Jurassic Park with the Jurassic World Legacy Collection John Hammond action figure! This exclusive character captures the franchise legacy with movie-authentic decoration and deluxe detail. The John Hammond action figure is inspired by the original Jurassic Park film and captures his innovative spirit, his caring role as a grandfather and his high expectations for his theme park on Isla Nublar. Action figure is approximately 3.190 inches tall and includes a cane and a stand with dinosaur eggs. Take home the excitement of Jurassic Park with this exciting John Hammond action figure!

This is the first time ever John Hammond has been given a toy, as not even the classic Jurassic Park Kenner line released the iconic founder of the park which started it all. Now, 26 years later, life has found a way! However, this toy will not be easy to come by – while you can pre-order it now, you must attend San Diego Comic Con 2019 to verify your purchase. There is a limit of 5 per attendee, and the attendee must show their 2019 San Diego Comic-Con badge, their ID, and order confirmation at Mattel booth #2945 on July 17th-21st. The name on the SDCC attendee badge and ID must match the name on the order. Order will be shipped after the event ends.

I know the limited availability is a bittersweet happenstance, as this toy has been long anticipated and requested, and will surely be incredibly difficult to track-down at affordable prices for non-attendees. However, I’m absolutely thrilled that this item exists – the classic Jurassic Park packaging is gorgeous, and the best I’ve ever seen for Jurassic, and the John Hammond figures likeness to the late Richard Attenborough is incredible. It’s worth noting that what stops this set from being perfect is the baby Velociraptor – for some reason Mattel thinks the classic Jurassic Park raptors were green — they were not. But even with that coloring snafu, this set is incredibly exciting, and sure to be an iconic centerpiece to many collections.

Are you attending SDCC 2019, and if so, will you be pre-ordering the exclusive John Hammond toy? Further, with this toy now a reality, what other exclusive and longtime requested characters would you like to see brought back to life? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost!

Official Images of the Mattel Jurassic World Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus Have Stomped Online!

This has been an exciting week to be a Jurassic Park fan, with news roaring online in abundance, Camp Cretaceous (an upcoming Jurassic World animated series) as the star attraction. While the week is coming to an end, that doesn’t mean the fun is quite over – at least not for fans of the Mattel toy line!

Straight from the official Mattel website, we have our first real look at the Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus!

Measuring upwards of 36 inches tall, and roughly 28 – 42+ inches long, this toy is a behemoth! With articulation on each leg, tail, and neck, it has a wide range of motion allowing for lots of fun play opportunities. In the US it is releasing under the Jurassic World Legacy Collection label later this Fall for $49.99, exclusively at Target. International market availability will vary, but mainline releases in some markets will exist to help get this item to as many fans as possible!

At this time, its exact release date is unknown, as is its release pattern. With any luck, it will not follow the lead of Targets bizarre strategy for the Legacy Collection Spinosaurus (releasing the bulk at around 3am EST without warning, and selling out by morning). While the Spinosaurus was an online exclusive in the US, we’re hoping the Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus will be carried in stores for better availability options.

For those who want all the information possible, the Mattel item number for the Brachiosaurus is GFH12.

Will you be picking up the Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus, and do you think Target will do a better job with distribution this time around? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost!


DreamWorks Debuts Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous Trailer – an All New Animated Series Roaring onto Netflix!

Welcome to Camp Cretaceous. At long last, the Jurassic Park series enters the animated foray with an all new series coming from DreamWorks Animation! Debuting exclusively on Netflix in 2020, Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous promises all the the thrills, wonder, and adventure synonymous with the Jurassic films.

Check out the first trailer below, and read on for the first plot details!

DreamWorks Animation today announced Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an animated action-adventure series, is set to debut globally on Netflix in 2020 as part of an ongoing multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce original animated kids and family programming. Set within the same timeline as the 2015 blockbuster film, Jurassic World, the Netflix original series is inspired by the multi-billion-dollar franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar. But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive.

Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous builds on a successful five-year relationship between DreamWorks Animation and Netflix that has seen 18 original series debut on the service, including the Tales of Arcadia trilogy from Guillermo del Toro, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Spirit Riding Free, and The Boss Baby: Back in Business. Following NBCUniversal’s acquisition of the studio, DreamWorks Animation and Netflix expanded their relationship to include first looks at animated series based on Universal Pictures properties as well as original and acquired IP. DreamWorks Animation has a number of additional series slated to debut on Netflix in 2019, including Archibald’s Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and the highly anticipated Fast & Furious animated series.

About The Jurassic World Franchise

From Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, the Jurassic World franchise immerses audiences of all ages in a new era of wonder and thrills where dinosaurs and humankind must learn to coexist. Jurassic World is more than a film franchise. At every turn, this $5 billion film series delivers a larger-than-life destination for exploration, discovery, and epic adventure. Dinosaurs live again and they live in Jurassic World. The third installment in the Jurassic World film series hits theaters on June 11, 2021.

From the synopsis, it sounds like Camp Cretaceous follows an elite-summer-camp-intern-program, where select students are given a once in a lifetime opportunity – but little do they know, it’s more than they bargained for. The series is believed to begin in parallel to the events of Jurassic World (much like Jurassic World Live), with all-hell letting loose after the Indominus Rex breaks free from her paddock. The six Camp Cretaceous stragglers are forced to come to terms with missing the evacuation of Isla Nublar, and band together to survive the chaos to follow (one might expect some ‘Swiss Family Robinson’ style antics to follow).

The trailer itself features stunning animation, featuring a Velociraptor in the jungle, investigating its surroundings and embodying the adventure to come. While the key art of the human characters is stylized, it seems the dinosaurs themselves with be realistically realized in beautiful 3D, accurately reflecting their live-action counterparts. While we haven’t seen much, it seems DreamWorks has knocked this one out of the park (no pun intended).

We couldn’t be more excited about the potential of this series! Will it show the park before its downfall – and if so, explore new areas of it? Further, will the series explore important other canonical stories playing out in other mediums, such as the Troodon and dino-decoder of Jurassic World Live, or the retrieval of the remains of the Indominus Rex, as seen in Fallen Kingdom? Or finally, will it explore entirely unknown events, perhaps expanding upon elements that will have a greater meaning in Jurassic World 3?

With so little known about the series, and so many opportunities to evolve the story into bold new territory, we’re confident this will be an exciting new Jurassic adventure for fans of all ages and interests. Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous will be a multi-season series, and debut on Netflix in 2020 (marking the first true Jurassic Park spin-off).

After the Jurassic Park films trying and failing to get a cartoon off the ground so many times in the past, it’s surreal to think that it’s finally happening! Let us know what you think of the first trailer, what you want from the series, and as always – stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost!

Jurassic World Evolution Announces All-New ‘Fallen Kingdom’ Inspired Story Expansion | Claire’s Sanctuary

Prepare to return to Isla Nublar this June, and save the dinosaurs from extinction. Frontier Developments have announced an all new DLC expansion for Jurassic World Evolution titled Claire’s Sanctuary. The ‘Sanctuary’ story expansion is inspired by the events of Fallen Kingdom, and focuses on saving the dinosaurs from the imminent Mount Sibo induced extinction, relocating them to Sanctuary Island.

Watch the trailer below, and read on for all the details!

The Jurassic World Evolution experience just got bigger and the stakes are higher than ever.

With Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary, you’ll embark on an exciting campaign with a thrilling storyline never before explored! This expansion pack features a whole host of new missions, dinosaurs, locations and loads more waiting to be unlocked by you on the islands.

Time is running out as the once dormant Mt. Sibo is expected to erupt at any minute and is threatening to send the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar back to extinction. Leap into action with Claire Dearing, voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard, as you work together on this rescue mission to save these magnificent creatures.

In addition to the exciting new narrative in Jurassic World Evolution, you’ll also gain access to three incredible new dinosaurs:

  • Albertosaurus – a large tyrannosaur with distinctive short, bony crests above the eyes and two extremely powerful legs
  • Euplocephalus – meaning “well-armoured head”, referring to its wide skull and toothless beak
  • Ouranosaurus – a powerfully built herbivore with a flat, duck-billed snout. This dinosaur had a thick muscular sail on its back going from the base of its neck to the very tip of its tail.

Dinosaurs aren’t the only addition though. Now, there are brand new Paleobotany mechanics that allow you to research and grow new plants using the new Greenhouse building. You’ll be able to serve your dinosaurs their favourite meals to increase their lifespan and prestige while making them feel more at home in the environment.

With an all new Isla Nublar play space, the addition of Sanctuary Island, Paleobotany, new dinosaurs, and more, this expansion promises to add fun for players of all interests! You may recognize the new off-road vehicle ride as the Gallimimus Valley tour vehicle, as seen in Jurassic World, which is quite a fun new addition. I’m particularly excited to visit Sanctuary Island, and learn more about this elusive island, as the film never explored it due to Mill’s dino-auction betrayal.

Alongside ‘Claire’s Sanctuary’, Jurassic World Evolution will be releasing a free update with many exciting, fan requested features as well.

  • Terrain and Scenery Items – Place new rocks, trees and shrubs in your dinosaur habitats or change the terrain from grass to dirt on some islands!
  • Spinosaurid Care – Spinosaurids are receiving some care refinement with the addition of wetlands to represent their swamp and coastal environments, plus new fish feeders!
  • Gyrosphere Improvements – We’ve made some changes to allow gyrospheres to pass through enclosure fences by adding automatic gates, so now you can wow your guests with a park-wide tour of all of your exhibits!
  • And more!

Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary will launch alongside our free update 1.8 on 18 June 2019 and will be available to download from Steam, PlayStation or the Xbox Store for £12.99/$14.99 (price may vary per platform and region). This pack is entirely optional for you to purchase, as update 1.8 will include these new features and will launch for free for all players. Please note you will need to own the base game in order to play.

What are you looking forward to the most in these upcoming Jurassic World Evolution expansions, and what changes or additions do you want to see come to Jurassic World Evolution in the future? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost for everything Jurassic!


Never Before Seen Art Surfaces from Cancelled ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’ Animated Series!

We were planning on holding this one off until Jurassic June, but much like the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar, we simply couldn’t contain it. While you no doubt know there was an unreleased Jurassic Park animated series in the early 90’s, you probably did not know there was another in development alongside The Lost World. This attempt at bringing Jurassic Park into the animated front was kept under lock and key, without any substantial evidence of existence… until now.

Check out our video below, where dive into the art and story revealed from this elusive, never before seen unreleased Jurassic Park tie-in!

The Lost World’s animated series was commissioned by Steven Spielberg himself, and developed by DreamWorks Animation under the supervision of Steve Lyons. The artwork on display comes from Phillip J. Felix, who also contributed to the story of this ill-fated cartoon venture. Not much is known about the plot, outside of the fact that it would have introduced hybrid dinosaurs to the Jurassic Park franchise for the first time. While the cartoon was eventually shelved due to a variety of internal conflicts, many ideas were adopted by Kenner with the Jurassic Park Chaos Effect toy line (which was also to have a animated series that fell through).

The video above walks you through all the art available, what we know about the story and its titular DOOMSDAY REX, and how the idea of hybrids evolved forward into Jurassic World. Be sure to check it out!

While the art from Phillip may be our only real look at the series, it’s believed these Kenner Jurassic Park Chaos Effect precursor concepts were tied directly to it. Most noticeably, the mech suit is very similar to that of Phillips artwork:

And of course, check out all the art from Phillip below!

The idea of a Jurassic Park primetime animated series was attempted many times over the years, but all became extinct before they were ever even truly alive. While some of the art for the hybrids in this series was a bridge too far for canon, in that era, transmedia story expansions were hardly ever held to continuity, and I would have enjoyed it as its own thing. That said, in today’s world of mega-franchises with expansive expanded universes and spin-offs, I think an animated series would need to stick closer to the source materials content.

While you’re here, check out our exclusive look at the original animated series attempt, ‘Escape from Jurassic Park’, featuring the entire season 1 story treatment! It features an unfinished script, and completely outlines the arc, episode-to-episode – its story goes much further into new territory than the beautiful artwork from William Stout had led us believe!

What do you think of the franchises first real attempts to bring hybrids into the story, prior to Chaos Effect, the Indominus Rex of Jurassic World, and Indoraptor of Fallen Kingdom? What would you have liked to see from this cartoon, and do you think we will ever get a proper Jurassic animated series? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost!

Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong to Reprise Film Roles for the All New Jurassic World Ride!

The stars of the Jurassic World Ride opening this Summer at Universal Studios Hollywood are not just dinosaurs! Universal Studios has announced that Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and BD Wong will be reprising their roles of Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, and Dr. Henry Wu respectively, bringing all new authentic story elements to the thrilling ride.

Claire Dearing was Jurassic World’s ‘Park Operations Manager’, and is expected to welcome and introduce guests to the all new ride in a fun in-universe way. All the while, Dr. Henry Wu will likely familiarize guests with some of the science at large bringing the dinosaurs back to life, before teasing the Indominus Rex, which later appears in the ride. How Owen Grady factors in remains to be seen – he wasn’t a face of the park, and is unlikely to be part of the queue’s welcome committee introduction.

Universal promises the inclusion of the cast will “will shed light on their interactions with the dinosaurs along with facts and information about the imposing prehistoric creatures that first roamed the earth more than 65 million years ago.” Read the full press release below!

Stars of the JURASSIC WORLD films Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and BD Wong reprise their roles as Owen Grady, Claire Dearing and Dr. Henry Wu, bringing their characters from the silver screen to Universal Studios Hollywood’s much anticipated mega attraction, “Jurassic World—The Ride,” opening this summer.

This marks the first time the cast will appear as their iconic characters outside of the JURASSIC WORLD films for a theme park attraction. As part of original content created exclusively for the new ride, Owen, Claire and Dr. Wu will shed light on their interactions with the dinosaurs along with facts and information about the imposing prehistoric creatures that first roamed the earth more than 65 million years ago.

This spectacular new ride will feature an original storyline that will take guests on a breathtaking excursion through the theme park as depicted in Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s film, JURASSIC WORLD. It will soar to new heights with the addition of iconic dinosaurs from the movie, including the colossal Indominus rex and the magnificent aquatic Mosasaurus in her natural habitat.

For the first time, JURASSIC WORLD fans will have the chance to see this impressive creature and become immersed within her massive Aquarium Observatory. Appearing to span over 60 feet in length and tipping the scales at over 30K pounds through stunning state-of-the-art visual effects, the Mosasaurus is a sight to behold as she moves just inches away from guests throughout her glass enclosure filled with the equivalent of 3.5 million gallons of water.

Universal Creative collaborated with Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) to bring the Mosasaurus to life and to capture the realism of her underwater environment using a combination of spectacular visual effects and cutting-edge technologies, including the use of motion parallax, a technique that shifts the guest’s perspective of the Mosasaurus as she moves throughout the tank.

The team also employed a series of lighting enhancements allowing the aquarium to intuitively shift from day to night, as well as visual changes to the environment during inclement weather, thus creating a variety of visual scenarios guests can experience based on when they experience the ride.

“Jurassic World—The Ride” captures the essence of the blockbuster movie and comes to life in collaboration with the award-winning and inspired minds at Universal Creative, the Academy Award®-winning special-effects visionaries at Industrial Light & Magic, a division of Lucasfilm, Ltd., Universal Pictures and acclaimed filmmakers Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and Frank Marshall.

When “Jurassic World—The Ride” opens this summer, guests will be welcomed to a dramatically reimagined space reflective of the hit films. A fresh entry statement, stonework landscaping, and a contemporary redesign of the iconic JURASSIC WORLD gates, illuminated with billowing flames, will create the framework for the all new aesthetics.

Once guests pass through the queue, they will board specially designed rafts that will navigate the lush environs of dense vegetation and traverse new areas besieged with towering dinosaurs meandering at just an arm’s length away. Encounters with such docile creatures as the Stegosaurus and Parasaurolophus will quickly turn awry as predatory Velociraptors and Dilophosaurus begin to wreak havoc, turning guests from spectators to prey. When the Tyrannosaurus rex begins to battle one of the attraction’s new ferocious dinosaurs, the rafts will spill down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall as the sole means of escape.

Located adjacent to the ride will be a new elaborately themed “Raptor Encounter” where Blue, the beloved Velociraptor from the JURASSIC WORLD franchise, will engage guests in daring face-to-face encounters.

Jurassic World the Ride opens sometime this Summer, though the release date remains a tightly guarded secret. Be sure to stay tuned, as it can’t be long until an announcement of when the newest attraction opens will hit, and more official looks into the ride are sure to follow.

First tease of ‘Jurassic World Live Tour’ Film Accurate Tyrannosaurus Rex

When ‘Jurassic World Live Tour’ provided the first real look at the dinosaurs from the show in April, fans all had the same thing to say: “That’s not the Jurassic World T. rex”. We later found out the use of the Walking with Dinosaurs tour Tyrannosaur was only placeholder, as the shows Rex was not yet ready. Now thanks to Mashable, we have our first tease of work in progress T. rex that will begin touring this Fall:

According to the report at Mashable, the ‘Jurassic World Live Tour’ Tyrannosaurus will be 42 feet long, weigh 8000 pounds, and travel at speeds up to 16 miles per hour. As with the other dinosaurs, the team creating the dinosaurs for the live show are working from the film assets, including the Industrial Light and Magic CGI models to bring these dinosaurs to the stage as film accurate as possible, more real than ever before.

Jurassic World Live Tour is set during and after the events of Jurassic World, and is an all new canon story in the Jurassic Park saga. Writers Shawn Thomas and Steve Jarczak and directors Dan Shipton and Ross Nicholson worked closely with the franchise creative team, including Colin Trevorrow, to make sure the story will be an authentic installment in the growing fictional universe. Be sure to read our full report that goes deep into the plot, dinosaurs, and making-of here!

Chronicle Collectibles Unveil Limited Run Jurassic Park Dilophosaurus 1/4th Scale Statue

Freshly hatched out of the labs of Chronicle Collectibles is a all new statue of an all time favorite Jurassic Park dinosaur: the Dilophosaurus! This dinosaur has not been seen outside of the original Jurassic film (with two Easter Egg cameos in the Jurassic World films), but is as popular today as it was in 1993. This new 1/4th scale statue is the closest you can come to officially owning the iconic carnivorous creature – check it out below!

The Dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park is a four-feet-tall product of creative license that has the
honor of being one of the few dinosaurs in the franchise to be rendered entirely with practical effects.
The renowned wizards at Stan Winston Studios embraced the task presented to them, and
delivered to the screen a creature capable of going from oddly cute to flat-out horrifying in an
instant. Even before its neck expanded and that toxic venom flew through the air, audiences
knew that Nedry’s day was done.

The artisans at Chronicle Collectibles pay homage to the work of those effects masters with
their Jurassic Park 1/4-scale Dilophosaurus Statue. The creature’s curious expression is fully
realized in one of the two heads included with the piece, which can be readily switched to the
other to capture that signature look with the extended frills and screaming mouth. The
Dilophosaurus Statue is limited to 300 pieces, with the first 100 sold including a Chronicle
Collectibles exclusive — a Barbasol cryo-can in 1/4 scale.

• The Dilophosaurus Statue is crafted in hand painted poly-resin.
• 14″ tall x 21″ long x 12″ deep.
• Switch out head for extended frill, open mouth display option. An additional small base
styled like the paddock markers serves as a stand for either head when not displayed
with the statue.
• Limited edition of 300 pcs
• Chronicle Collectibles Exclusive: 1/4 scale Barbasol cryo can- limited to the first 100
orders.
• Estimated to ship Q2 2020
• Priced at $899 (and eligible for no-interest payment plans)

Available for pre-order now! If you’re a collector of high end statues, this one is not to be missed – the inclusion of two different heads really hammers home the versatility of this dinosaurs design variations, and is great for multiple display opportunities.

Will you be picking up this statue? Sound off in the comments below, and as always, stay tuned for the latest news!
