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!
