Velociraptor (Film Universe)
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…

Mattel Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Thrash N Throw T Rex Video Review!

Mattel have spared no expense.

That is the resounding impression I have been left with after going hands on with their Jurassic World line at New York Toy Fair, and now with my very own here at home. I knew the toys were good when I saw them on display – but could they really stand on their own, were the paint applications really that good – you never know until you have the final item.

As it turns out, there was no smoke and mirrors. The toys have continued to impress with their outstanding quality, and innovative and fun play features. The new Thrash N Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex perhaps is the most innovative of the bunch, taking the typical large biting Rex toy and throwing in a new range of motion for exciting, and lifelike movement.

Check out the video review below, and read on for more specific impressions.

About the toy:

Relive the Big Screen Action-Adventure! 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!

Authentic Sculpting & Decoration
In the style of the fan-favorite character from the original Jurassic Park, Thrash ‘N Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex™ is back and better than ever with exciting action features, authentic sculpting and decoration.

Chomping & Stomping Sound Effects
In addition to authentic sculpt and decoration, Thrash ‘N Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex™ has sound effect features like chomping and stomping, an impressive roar and a HUGE bite.

Thrash & Throw Tail Activation
Thrash ‘N Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex™ can use her tail activation to open her mouth and pick up other human and dinosaur action figures, and then thrash and throw them across the room just like epic dinosaur action scenes from the movie!

Ages 3+
SRP $39.99
Releases April 16th, 2018

The Thrash N Throw Tyrannosaurus Rex measures about 21 inches long, stands on its own, and can roar, bite, stomp, and thrash its head with a total of 7 sounds. You can control the motions by moving its tail up and down, as well as left and right, which translates to the inverse motion on the head. The more you play, the more you can find ways to fine tune her movements, which can be surprisingly lifelike.

With the biting feature, you can have the T. rex lunge downward, biting and picking up other dinosaurs or humans that sit below her – from there you can thrash her body and head back and forth, until throwing the dino-food, much like the scenes in the Jurassic Park films.

The toy is large and detailed, with the most film accurate sculpt the series has seen! Not only does she have the bumps and scales she’s famous for, she has her scars from the end battles of Jurassic Park and World, easily making the toy a must for kids and collectors.

A fun new feature of this toy line is the Jurassic Facts App – each dino has a DNA strand QR code on their foot, which unlocks them within the app. As of the time of filming this review, the app was not yet available, however it has since launched on IOS. Check out our article here!

  1. Thanks for doing a video review of this toy. I will be getting one on April 17th. Thanks again, and it was a great review!

  2. This is incredible! The whole toyline is incredible!

    Ya know, if other people, adults and collectors alike, agree with this view, it might help pull Toys ‘R’ Us a little bit out of it’s monetary troubles.

    1. Yeah, Star Wars is definitely not helping them. If anything it made toys r us worse. It seems like the mainstream is just sick of seeing star wars everywhere; there needs to be a new king, and I’m confident that Jw/Jp will fill those shoes with the heavy marketing.

    1. If you count a early toy being paid, I was paid a Tyrannosaurus Rex?

      But there were no stipulations asking for a good review. I kept it honest – I have no problems being truthful and bringing up things I don’t mesh with.

  3. For the people who want to now what is coming for the legacy line on jp toys is a picture for the rex from the line and if your to lazzy to do it then here is the list

    Legacy Collection (Target exclusive)

    Alan Grant (W1 – FLN38)
    Ellie Sttler (W1 – FLN72)
    Ian Malcolm (W1 – FLN37)
    Robert Muldoon (W1 – FLN35)

    Velociraptor (W1 – FLN70)
    Pachycephalosaurus (W1 – FLN65)
    Extreme Chompin’ T-Rex (W1 – FLN69)
    Dilophosaurus (W2 – FLN66)
    Pteranodon (W2 – FLN67)
    Velociraptor 2 (W2 – FLN70)

    1. The Chomper will not be FLN69, it’s a size more fitting to Junior which was revealed in the App. When things are released as an Assortment, in this case Mattel FLN64, all the figures in it are the same size and price-point–they don’t do mix-and-match cases for simple Inventory Management reasons.

      I did the Deep Dive on this over on the JPT forum…

    2. fake fake fake faaakkkke

      First off, no one knows any of this, because it would have been announced, also, this line probs isn’t coming out until 2019, (the gap between Jw2 and 3)

      Nice try.

  4. Has anyone seen the Fossil Strikers yet Cause I think I found them in images 19-22
    I have no idea why they aren’t on the Jurassic Outpost or JP Toys Site yet I haven’t seen them posted any were but here and this was published in Late February, Tell me did people actually Miss these some how? Please check these out and add them to page please it would be a great service to the JP. TOYS community Thanks

  5. I NEED one of these. I love everything about it. one question. wouldn’t the stomp button be kinda in the way while posing it?

  6. I went to the store. There it was a faulty one, I purchased another. 10 days exactly after, my own Trex broke the snaping mechanism for the bite. I could return it and they could give me another one like 3 days after. The new one, BROKE on the same place in just two bites. I’m really, really worried that ALL of them are going to break really soon. That, or I am the unluckiest guy in the world.
