There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

  1. Not really a fan of keep repaiting older releases, especially when they’re still not movie-accurate (looking at you, Velociraptor) while the claws remain unpainted. That only gives me bad flashbacks to the Hasbro era, when the only thing they did was repainting the JP3 line for over a decade.
    However, the new sculpts look interesting. Coelurus, Dracorex and Plesiosaurus look quite lovely.

    1. Well we got to remember, Even Kenner did quite a few repaints when they made the toys. These repaints don’t really bother me since half of them are also retools, but I do understand what your getting at here

    2. I’m willing to overlook the unpainted claws – since that really seems to be the only major recurring paint issue, compared to other problems that could and have existed before.

      I’m still not sure why no one else is marveling at the fact that Mattel is painting the actually ball/bending neck joint pieces so that we don’t see bare plastic when we move a Dino’s head – see attack pack stygimoloch for example.

  2. Many other figures weren’t shown, and there have been rumours of a Nedry and Hammond. Also look out for Amargasaurus, Brachiosaurus and Quetzalcoatlus.

    1. Seeing as we only had one figure of the female JP3 Raptor, i’m hoping Mattel will decide to release it alongside the male JP3 Raptor. Parasaurolophus wouldn’t be a bad choice, either.

  3. Lots of non-canon dinosaurs here like the Herrerasaurus.

    I have Two colossal Rexes already. Wake me up when they release a big Brachiosaurus.

  4. I’m down for Nedry, Hammond, Tim and Lex humans. Also, we need an Eli Mills for JWFK. Also, we need ford explorers and I can’t wait for the massive Brachiosaurus

  5. still waiting for those playsets and more vehicles like the ford explorer. but these dinosaurs look good and verry exited about that GIANT BRACHIOSAURUS. but in it all verry good mattel

  6. What about the coolest dino of the entire movie the biggest baddest and the only dino that absolutely could never be outmatched she had only 2 cameos in the latest film the MOSASOUR

  7. Perfect Blue Character of the Jurassic Collector Series, all the details, such as the size of the feet and the head, are highly respected. I hope so much that they will do the same with the t-rex from Jurassic World, The Lost World and JP3, and also with the JP3 male velociraptor, where they will simply have to change their color, change their heads and add thorns. or protoplums behind the head.

  8. Loving that little ATV set though I really feel like it was a huge missed opportunity for a great figure of
    Omar Sy’s Barry from JW… who needs another Owen?!!

    Those concepts are great, hope they pan out in some form

  9. Aww, I will definetly be picking up Dracorex, protoceratops, ceolorus, and ramphyrinchus! The gray dracorex is so cute! Also the tapejara. But the plesiosaur looks like something out of an animal planet dinosaur playset… and so does the new pteranodon. I might also buy the dimetrodon. The dracorex looks like the one from JW Evolution, and she’s so cute! Please Frontier Games, add these dinosaurs to the game! They are so cool! Especially smaller and large pterosaurs, aquatics, and non Dino’s like dimetrodon. I just LOVE that gray Dracorex! ❤️

  10. It would be great to have a non-legacy collection Spinosaurus so we can actually find them in stores and not just from ebay scalpers. And a better color scheme on it wouldnt hurt. More and larger dilophosaurs maybe without the frill would be nice.

  11. I just want to see these all actually get released here in Australia this time. We’re still waiting on half the figures from the last lot. We still have no Mosasaur, human figures, Battle Damage or Legacy Collection stuff yet. Can Mattel finish distributing stuff from the first round to all markets before moving on to the second round, please?

  12. So here are the new species we know of in the line:

    1. Plesiosaurus
    2. Dracorex
    3. Coelurus
    4. Rhamphorhynchus
    5. Styracosaurus
    6. Tapejara / Tupandactylus
    7. Concavenator
    8. Nasutoceratops
    9. Amargasaurus
    10. Quetzalcoatlus
    11. Albertasaurus
    12. Brachiosaurus
    13. Indominus Rex *
    14. Parasaurolphus *
    15. ???
    16. ???

    * = strongly rumored

  13. I’d also really like a super articulated T-Rex like what they did with the Indoraptor.

    I’d also like:
    Jungle Explorer
    Mobile Command Center
    Hammond
    Nedry
    Lex and Tim
    Sarah Harding
    Parasaurolophus
    Articulated Raptors

  14. I really think the Indoraptor’s nickname should be ‘Hot-rod’ instead of ‘Ripper’… I mean, he has a hot-rod paintjob and Wheatley even says he’s ‘some kind of hot-rod’.
    He doesn’t do much ‘ripping’ but he sure does look like a hot-rod Dinosaur…
    But hey, I don’t have a Youtube channel so pfft, what do I know?

  15. I hope Mattel will produce more products because in the Philippines we don’t have wave 2 and 3 human figure, super colossal t rex wave 2 roarivores, playsets and legacy collection

    The toys that are available here are so expensive so I can’t even buy one 😭😭😭
