The tyrannosaurids continue! Here we have Wally the PNSO Albertosaurus, sculpted in a dynamic running pose. Looks pretty impressive, although I have to wonder how well he can stand without the aid of a support rod.
Mattel Creations has revealed “The Gates,” a very large, very elaborate Hammond Collection set combining elements of both Jurassic Park and The Lost World. We have the bull/buck Tyrannosaurus rex, retooled and repainted from the HC T. rex, we have Lex and Tim Murphy, we have an ill-fated goat, six dinosaur sign posts, a Ford Explorer XLT with a detailed interior, sections of electric fencing, and the iconic gates with electronic lights and sound.
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.
Move over, PNSO, because two new dinosaurs from Haolonggood have been revealed! First up is the Early Cretaceous stegosaur, Wuerhosaurus, in two distinct colour schemes. Both look attractive and realistic, and the sculpting is impressive, particularly the ragged edges on the plates.
And second is Pachyrhinosaurus, also in two colour schemes.
Following up on last year’s Tyrannocon Rex vs JP93 set, Hasbro has revealed a second Jurassic Park-inspired Transformers Collaborative two-pack. Behold the vicious Decepticon Dilophocon vs the mighty (or perhaps not so much) Autobot JP12!
As you can see, Dilophocon transforms from a venom-spitting, frilled Dilophosaurus to a robot warrior armed with a heavy laser blaster.
Relative newcomer Haolonggood has been on something of a role these last two months, unveiling a series of highly impressive prehistoric figures, each one available in two different colour schemes, that easily rival anything from the other companies. Here’s hoping that this happy trend continues, and that Haolonggood gets wider distribution!
LEGO is marking the 30th anniversary of Jurassic Park with five new sets based on scenes from the film, including the first ever Brachiosaurus figure. These are all slated for release on June 1.
Velociraptor Escape. Don’t rightly recall Ellie ever driving an ATV.
Dilophosaurus Ambush. Looks like the arrow sign can actually spin.
