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…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has now exploded onto cinema screens around the world, and the news surrounding the franchise isn’t showing any signs of slowing down!

The new hybrid that Dr. Wu created, the IndoRaptor, is now available to breed at your park – but judging by the movie itself, perhaps this is not such a great idea? You can find more information on the free DLC from the Frontier team here, and if you haven’t seen it, check out our interview with some of the team behind the game:

Next up is Chronicle Collectables latest debut, the 1:1 scale model of the Baby Velociraptor Hatchling as seen in Jurassic Park! Chronicle have been ensuring fans have numerous ways to show their appreciation and love for Jurassic Park’s 25th Anniversary this year, and $250 collectable might be the perfect piece to complete your collection.

This beautiful officially licensed piece was crafted and modeled after the scene in the movie, and measures 11″ in height with a 6″ diameter on the base. As with every piece from Chronicle, various payment plans are available for this item and the pre-orders are now open at ChronicleCollectibles.com!

“The magic of that scene with the hatching baby velociraptor in Jurassic Park remains even after all these years. It’s been great fun to recreate this piece for fans and it’s something that’s never been done before.” – Paul Francis, Creative Director

The item is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2019.

  1. I think if there’s one thing people agree on about Fallen Kingdom, it’s that the new dinosaurs, some of which we’ve been hoping for for years, were very cool to see in a Jurassic film.

    1. Too bad even if many of us didn’t want any new species… The damn masses kept demanding crap like ‘Giganotosaurus’ and ‘IonlyknowafewspeciesbecauseI’m12andgetoverexcitedtoomuch-asaurus’… Just another aspect that hurt the film.

  2. There’s one thing in my mind. Will they keep making more Jurassic movies in the future after this trilogy is over? Make no mistake the new one in my opinion is one of the best in the series! If I say anything negative about the movie fine!!!!! I’ll feed u to rexy the t rex!!!!!!

    1. Now, don’t get me wrong here. I loved Fallen Kingdom. I think it’s my second favorite after the original movie. But I personally don’t think they should make another one after this trilogy wraps up. I think that once this trilogy’s story is wrapped up, that should be the end of the main series. And I don’t want to see a Jurassic Park reboot for at least another ten years, maybe more. Anything earlier would just be too soon.

      But that’s just me. 🙂

  3. Anyway I’m going to work on dino pictures from the Jurassic screencaps!!!! Another way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original that started it all!!!!! 19 pictures to be exact!!! I’m an artist in case I need to know Jurassic kaiju14

  4. Some of Chronicle’s stuff is neat but a lot of the time they get it wrong and the result ends up looking like some kind of fan-adaptation of the animal they’re sculpting.
