June’s been quite the month for reveals thus far and this latest one is literally the biggest yet: Mattel’s Hammond Collection Brachiosaurus. It looks to be the most poseable sauropod toy ever made, complete with a bendable neck and the (inaccurate) ability to rear up on its hind legs.
Earlier this week, we saw the reveal of the very retro-looking Electronic Real Feel Tyrannosaurus rex. Now check out its packaging, which is similarly a homage to the original 1993 Jurassic Park packaging by Kenner.
Also newly revealed are three additional Classic ’93 products. First is the Tactical Claw Pack with Alan Grant, a Gallimimus, a juvenile Velociraptor, and a bunch of accessories.
Among the many new toys Mattel is releasing for this year is the Electronic Real Feel Skin Tyrannosaurus rex. The colour scheme is clearly a homage to the original Electronic T. rex from Kenner’s 1993 Jurassic Park line, while the swallowing gimmick with a retrieval slit in the belly is reused from the Bull T.
Still more images of 2024 Jurassic World toys have shown up online!
Craterosaurus. To my knowledge, this is the very first toy of the European stegosaur.
Kileskus. The diminutive Russian tyrannosauroid is also receiving its very first toy.
Triceratops. Looks kind of like a turtle with all that plating.
Mattel has revealed their Jurassic Park exclusive for San Diego Comic Con (which begins on July 20) and it’s none other than acclaimed Hollywood director Steven Spielberg himself along with a Hammond Collection Dilophosaurus.
The set also includes a movie camera mounted on a tripod, a director’s chair, and an animatronic stand.
With the Jurassic World license now in the hands of people who actually care about the toys they make, we now have a large selection of toys that (so far) have proven to be a massive improvement over the poorly designed dreck that Hasbro has created for the last film in the series.
For the first time in Jurassic Park‘s history, Mattel now has the license from Universal to create toys for this franchise after Hasbro and Kenner had it for years before. No doubt Hasbro’s disappointing attempt at the previous toy line for Jurassic World (featuring screw holes on the sides of the figures, permanent flesh wounds on most, no sense of scale, and poor quality control) was the push that was needed to hand the reigns over to someone else.

Mattel has made more ”Blue” toys (as well as other Velociraptors) than you can shake a stick at. Today, we will be taking a look at one of several incarnations of the beloved raptor: their Jurassic World Dominion Ferocious Pack version.
There aren’t a lot of dinosaur toys on the market that specialize in articulation (David Silva’s Beasts of the Mesozoic line being the main shining exception right now), so the announcement of Mattel’s Amber Collection for their ongoing Jurassic World line was reason for excitement. Beginning in 2019, Mattel began select releases of dinosaurs, and later human characters, in the 6.5″ collector’s scale, with higher quality detail and poseability than the standard action figures they produce.
