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…

New Jada Toys 1:24th scale Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler!

Jada Toys recently revealed via Instagram that the previously teased 1:24th scale Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler would be released this fall. While they have yet to post anything to their website yet, eBay store ‘Minineopet‘ has seemingly gotten the items in stock, giving us our first look! Take a look at the images below!

The 1:24th Jeep Wrangler measures 7 in (17.8 cm) long, and features rotating wheels, plus an opening hood and doors. This is an accurate representation of the 1992 Jeep Wrangler featured in the film, which is a first – the previous 1:43 scale Die Cast from Jada was not an entirely accurate model like so. The final retail price has yet to be officially revealed, but will likely be between $14.99~$19.99.

Interestingly, the toy features Jurassic Park Jeep #12 which Dennis Nedry drove, and was not featured in Jurassic World (like #29). That perhaps makes the usage of the same Jurassic World merchandise packaging with that ugly generic looking Tyrannosaurus a pinch confusing, as something more closely themed with the first film would feel at home. Either way, this a piece fans and collectors have wanted for years, and it’s great to see it finally come to fruition!

Things have been fairly quiet lately, but this is just the calm before the storm. Jurassic World 2 begins filming around February of 2017, and news is sure to begin flowing soon. Further, Jurassic World the Exhibition comes to the US in November of this year, first stop Philadelphia PA!

As always, stay tuned for the latest news and sound off in the comments below!

    1. Bummer. They are *always* getting that logo font wrong. From my understanding, its what Universal has in their digital archives. I’d love for someone more knowledgeable to to compose an image showcasing the inaccuracies! Jurassic Jeeps sadly are not my specialty.

      1. So… yea. The fog lights aren’t actual lights. The seats don’t appear to be the actual Sahara trim. The paint color is probably wrong like the older version. The tires don’t have white lettering. For whatever reason they painted these door hinges black.. NO WHIP ANTENNA?? They all had that except for #10 (t-rex chase scene). And most importantly, Jeep #12 is Nedry’s Jeep. This looks nothing like his. His had the soft top and the controllable overhead lights. Those are all the major things I see at first glance, without having the actual model in my hand. But saying the 1:24 is more accurate than the 1:43 doesn’t mean anything when this one is still so far off.

        1. Thanks for the details. I’d recomend posting this to JADA’s Facebook and/or Twitter. While it’s too late to change the physical features, paint errors can be tweaked (they did that with the Mercedes 4×4), and future released could revise the model for better accuracy.

  1. We can pray that these Jeeps fly off store shelves (I know I will pick up a few of them for sure) so that Jada may be tempted to do more Jurassic vehicles. Do you guys think / know of any plans that Jada has to do the Ford Explorer? Or any other vehicle for that matter?

  2. I’m gonna wait for Chronicle Collectibles to make this! They hinted it at the CC, both the Jeep and the Explorer. And based on their other products, they WILL be screen accurate! Sure, they might be pretty costly, but totally worth it! And for the love of god, make them in 1:18 scale!!!!

  3. Give me ten!!! yes more vehicles Jurassic Park All the damh helicopter!!!
    The Lost World, Hummers, Unimogs, the Mercedes Benz M class, the FLEETWOOD
    THE CONTROL ANIMAL AND THE BURGER KING CAMION, DINODAMAGED
    JURASSIC PARK III the plane, Grant´s truck, army vehicles yes GIVE ME TEN !!!

  4. Jurassic park is such a great franchise. They should incorporate more interior features of the Wrangler in the movie to help promote more exhilarating moments. The Wrangler steering wheel brings modernized technology to life for a vehicle presumed for only off road performances
