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.
Mind, whether or not this set actually makes it to production depends on the success of the crowd funding. Here is all the relevant information from the website:
We’re celebrating Jurassic Park’s 30th Anniversary with an awe-inspiring crowdfund! It starts with the enormous fan-demanded motorized entry gates and a first-ever Ford Explorer #5. No expense has been spared on recreating the details, and the collector-level execution extends to all the extras you can unlock from each tier. Say the magic word, fund all the extras, and return with us to a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth!
