Velociraptor (Film Universe)
IMG_0136
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…

  1. That I.rex looks phenomenal. Almost perfect, if it weren’t for the unpainted claws and short tail. Still a bit worrying to only see repaints though. It was disappointing to hear that they wouldn’t make new characters/vehicles/play sets in the near future or anything, but now they just start repainting old models.

    Hope they have more good stuff coming

  2. Don’t care much for the repaints, but that Indominus…I need it.

    Not super (heh) excited for the Super Colossal Blue but it looks alright.

    Hoping we see some more new stuff soon.

  3. Looks like this one is actually able to stand up by itself.

    You paying attention, Hasbro? THIS is how you do a Jurassic toyline.

  4. Well hopefully they have some new items not just repaints. I’m huge fan but I’m pretty disappointed with what they’ve shown other than the Indominus. I was really hoping to see new humans and vehicles.

    Hopefully these repaints don’t kill the line.

  5. Where the Hell is the updated stocks on the Legacy Spinosaurus? I refuse to pay $80-90 more than it should be. Looks like the new Dimetrodon is turning this way as well…

    I agree on the Legacy Vehicles, though it’s far too early. Maybe… playsets as well?

    Too bad the arms on the SC Blue aren’t rubber. Since they’re long enough, could have been great action feature like the smaller figures.

  6. Indominus looks amazing! I like the colossal Blue but wish they make a colossal Spinosaurus. That’d be awesome. Cannot wait to see the Brachiosaurus! Also hope to see more humans and vehicles. Ford Explorer especially!

        1. I was going to call Mattel Australia and ask but I ordered from Amazon instead (still waiting on stock) but if you sign into Amazon.com (not .au) you can order it. It’s a little under $130 AUD all up shipped.

  7. You missed Primal Pal Blue in the list.

    While there’s a lot of repaints of earlier figures they’re still appealing. The Indominus is definitely going to my collection. The Hasbro version that I got is still unopened and shall remain that way due to her screw holes. No such issues with this one.

  8. Any word on the quetzalcoatlus that is supposed to be part of the dual action line? It is listed under the stegosaurus’s description on the Toys R Us website.

  9. And the point of the repaints is? The Indominus looks amazing:-) Really looking forward to the Amargasaurus, Quetzocoatlus, Nasutoceratops and most of all the Brachiosaurus

    1. The single most expensive step in making a toy is making the steel-cut molds required to hold then cool molten plastic. Add to this the salaries of the designers and engineers, and there is a very considerable expense involved in making a single new-mold toy. Many of these development expenses are not involved in making a redeco, giving the company a chance to make a larger profit on a single mold and put more product on the shelves with a smaller investment.

      Another reason is that the toy market moves far, far faster today than it did when the line first started. Retailers do not like product to linger, and shipping older toys in new assortments can give the impression that some items simply do not sell. (Of course, some don’t anyway, but that’s beside the point.) With this much shorter sales window in mind, companies use redecoes to keep molds in use longer (to help make back the money spent in development plus a worthwhile profit), and oftentimes keep popular characters still in circulation while maintaining a “fresh” look on the shelves, making the retailers happy. Retools have a much longer development lead time than redecoes, even for small parts. It may not cost much more to give a reused mold a new robot mode head, but timing concerns may be the deciding factor in choosing to redeco the old one.[1]

  10. What’s up with Mattel taking all the human figures and dinosaurs and just repainting them and putting them in a new package. It’s the same toy just slightly altered lol

  11. Wow! I hope those are going to be real new color schemes for the roarivores! I passed on most for the first wave because i thought the color schemes were horrible, but these look great! Especially the baryonyx and the ceratosaurus. Never cared for the indominus. Would have rather they rereleased the spino.

  12. I would like Mattel so much:
    -a Tarbosaurus based on “Thrash ‘n Throw T-Rex” or “Extreme Chompin’ T-Rex” with some modifications: the tail not short, a narrower skull and smaller feet;
    – Mount Sibo volcano 30 to 50 centimeters wide, ornithocheirus, sarcosuchus, deinosuchus or purussaurus, skeleton of Apatosaurus STEM, N622DC plane from Jurassic Park 3,
    -For the “Super Colossal Tyrannosaurus Rex”, just the slightly longer jaws, and the slightly more detailed dewlap connecting the lower jaw and the neck.
    -And Super Colossal Mosasaurus based on the “mosasaurus real feel!” and “Quest For Indominus Rex Pack” with some modifications: the body a little longer, the tail longer and bigger.

  13. That new Bite N’ Fight Tyrannosaurus Rex is unbelievable. But I feel like they could have gave it a sound box. One for the tail slashing, and snapping noises for the bitting bit, and a loud long roar when you let it go!

  14. Mattel is really good at making new Jurassic world Dino rivals sets these are the best toy videos everand also there are really good at making Jurassic world the making it come to life .so good at this.

  15. It looks amazing! I would like to buy an Indominus Rex! Where is it available (with cheap shipping to Slovakia)?
