However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Introducing the ‘Jurassic World Alpha Training Blue‘.

Get ready for thrilling action and adventure with Jurassic World! Relive captivating movie moments and exciting scenes with this line of film-inspired products featuring authentic detail, amazing design and incredible value fans will love!

Based on Velociraptor Blue, a fan-favorite character from Jurassic World, this fully interactive toy is operated with a remote control just like Owen’s clicker in the movie. With incredibly lifelike movement, Alpha Training Blue moves, blinks, roars, chomps and responds to your commands. With 4 modes of exciting play: Training Mode, Guard Mode, RC Mode, and Total Control Mode, you can learn to be an expert dinosaur trainer.

  • In Training Mode, the accelerometer-equipped controller allows Blue to mimic movements. You can give her treats, reward Blue by petting her, and move her using responsive motion commands. As you train, you unlock levels and her behavior improves.
  • Set Blue in a location and monitor movement in Guard Mode. When any “prey” gets within a foot of her motion sensors, the controller will vibrate. Issue appropriate commands to warn intruders
  • RC Mode uses the joystick portion of the controller to move around. Like a vehicle, you can control Blue to move forward, backward and side to side.
  • In Total Control Mode, you control your Blue’s movements, from her eyes and mouth to her head, you decide how she comes to life.
  • Blue is not your typical interactive toy – no matter how much you train her, she wont always listen, remaining slightly independent. However, the more you work with her and reward her good behavior, the more she’ll comply. The complexity of ways to play and train her will provide countless hours of fun – and the longer you leave her alone, the more she will revert to her wild state!

    Thankfully, Alpha Training Blue has an internal battery, meaning you can simply plug her in after play and do not need to spend extra cash buying batteries continuously. Further, she has a USB input, meaning if Mattel chooses to, she can be updated with new ways to play in the future!

    1. animatronics are great toys! but not at these prices…jesus thats waaay too much for it to be that small.
      i’ve got and animatronic parrot and dog i found at goodwill and they are so much fun

      but the raptors too small for the price.

    2. That is really awesome. The price point is a bit of a bummer though. Whether or not I’ll get this depends on the availability since Mattel has had some distribution issues with their main toyline.
