First Look at Jurassic Park Funko Pop Series!

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s merchandise art reveal, the toy news keeps coming.

We’ve known for a couple months now that Funko was taking a trip to Isla Nublar, and returning with a lineup of Pops based on Jurassic Park just in time for its 25th anniversary. Somewhat recently, retailers listed the lineup on their websites without images – and now finally Funko has released concept art based on the anticipated collectors range!

We’ll bring it up straight away – yes there is a Ellie Sattler figure!

Apologies to Funko for assuming they omitted her. However, only including her as a bundled character does feel rather shortsighted, and not doing her character nor general female representation justice.

The Jurassic Park Pop line is sure to enthrall collectors of Funko and the the film alike, and we’ve got to say they look great! As the Dilophosaurus is listed as ‘with chase’, it’s speculated there will also be a rarer version without the frill to hunt down. Further, perhaps there will be an individual version of Ellie Sattler, not tied to the Jurassic Jeep, exclusive to another retailer.

I know I personally love these, and they will be the first line of Funko’s I collect. The only thing in the concept art that throws me off, is it seems the Velociraptor is missing its sickle claw – but that’s something the final item will surely feature.

Further, the Jeep pictured with Ellie should be Jeep 10 (open top) – not Jeep 12 (closed top, which Dennis drove).

While not yet announced, Funko will certainly have a range based upon Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in the near future as well – so this marks the start of a great collecting series. The Jurassic Park POP’s hitting to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration are as follows:

Dr. Ian Malcolm
Shirtless Malcolm (Target exclusive)
Dr. Alan Grant
John Hammond
Dennis Nedry
Dilophosaurus (1 in 6 chance for closed frill variant)
Tyrannosaurus Rex
Dennis Nedry (venom attack) w/ Dilophosaurus (Entertainment Earth exclusive – preorder now!)
Jurassic Park Jeep Vehicle w/ Ellie Sattler

The lineup releases March 15th, 2018 and for now, no images of the final toys are yet available – but stay tuned, it likely wont be long until they are formally unveiled. Be sure to sound off in the comments below, and let us know what you think of these and want to see next!

Thanks to for first covering them, and Thomas Fishenden for sending them our way!

First Look at Packaging Art for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Merch!

Our first look at packaging art for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom products is here!

Several listings for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom products showed up in a recent PEZ sales brochure, including several listings of dinosaur-shaped PEZ dispensers featuring the likenesses of Tyrannosauruses and raptors, as well as the dilophosaurus and mosasaurus.

However, the stand out of these listings is that of the packaging’s key art, which features a profile image of Blue, along with the grittier Fallen Kingdom version of the Jurassic World logo and a background image of an erupting volcano.

This design seems to be the general format for other products – such as those being released by LEGO and Mattel – with Blue being the centerpiece for all of the packaging.

And, since that is the case, this marks the first time that a Tyrannosaurus or other large, headlining dino (like the spinosaurus from Jurassic Park III) has not been the focus of packaging art for the franchise. The art for Jurassic World (pictured below) featured a head-on image of the Tyrannosaurus, as well as the sleeker, blue and silver version of the JW logo.

What this means for the franchise and products yet to come, we have yet to find out, but a different turn is always exciting.

Let us know your thoughts on the packaging in the comments below and on our forums!

Full Expanded Descriptions of Every LEGO ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Set! (Potential Spoilers)

In 2015, LEGO released a range of sets for Jurassic World which quickly became fan favorites due to their variety and creativity. While the builds weren’t very accurate to the film itself, they were fun, and captured the Jurassic play factor and identity fairly well. Due to their roaring success, fans have been eagerly looking forward to how LEGO would step up the game with their Fallen Kingdom range – it was widely assumed the new range would be more involved, and accurate to what was on screen in the movie.

Thanks to LEGO fan site [Redacted] fans questions have been answered, and we have detailed descriptions of the sets! Check out their video below, and read on for our write-up based on their information and more(warning – potential spoilers):

LEGO toys are always fun, and these are no different, but after the success of Jurassic World, plus the solid sales of the merchandise, we were left hoping for more. LEGO usually does a great job with licensed properties (look no further than Star Wars or Harry Potter), so by comparison, these look particularly simplistic. It would be easier to be less judgmental if LEGO prices were not so steep, but considering their profit margin, it’s hard not to want a little more.

Perhaps there is yet another set yet to be discovered, exclusive to a specific retailer, which will help further flesh out the line with new content. With any luck, LEGO will continue to support the Jurassic brand after these sets, and not wait for the next film, offering more variety in time.

Again, thanks to [redacted] for first reporting on these LEGO sets. The sets are expected to release some time after April 16th, 2018. Sound off in the comments below to let us know what set you’re looking forward to the most, and stay tuned for all the latest news!

The film that started it all, 65 million years in the making. On June 11th, 1993 Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment released ‘Jurassic Park’ – a new science fiction film by Steven Spielberg, based upon Michael Crichton’s best selling novel of the same name.

Jurassic Park is set on Isla Nublar, a fictional island off the coast of Costa Rica where billionaire John Hammond and a team of genetic scientists, have created a theme park that hosts cloned dinosaurs.

On a remote island, a wealthy entrepreneur secretly creates a theme park featuring living dinosaurs drawn from prehistoric DNA. Before opening the attraction to the public, he invites a top paleontologist, a paleobotanist, a mathematician/theorist, and his two eager grandchildren to experience the park — and help calm anxious investors. However, their park visit is anything but tranquil as the park’s security system breaks down, the prehistoric creatures break out, and the excitement builds to surprising results.

The film’s premiere was on June 9, 1993 in Washington D.C. On June 11, the film opened across America.
