We’ve once again partnered up with the fantastic teams at Universal, Target, and Mattel to produce this fun, Jurassic reveal show from the fans – for the fans! Check out the debut episode below:

In episode 1 we speak with Mattel’s toy designer Gregory Murphy about the brand new collector focused line: the Hammond Collection, and dive into the designing and painting of the two debut items: The Lost World’s Parasaurolophus, and Fallen Kingdom’s Baryonyx.

The Hammond Collection named for Jurassic Park’s founder John Parker Hammond and sets a new standard for Jurassic collectables, marrying the detail you knew from the Amber Collection with the core 3.75″ scale. This means more dinosaurs than ever of all sizes from across the entire franchise.

Discover the thrills and adventure of the Jurassic World Series captured in the Hammond Collection, named for Jurassic Park’s founder John Parker Hammond and setting a new standard for dinosaur collectables, including the fearsome Baryonyx! With premium design and attention to detail, this 13 inch long Baryonyx from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has incredible movie-accurate design, color and texture, and 20 points of articulation, from a terrifying wide double-articulated jaw to a posable tail and 3 joints on the back legs.

With premium design that is movie-quality in detail, this 12 inch long Parasaurolophus action figure from The Lost World: Jurassic Park will delight fans and collectors. This figure has incredible movie-accurate design, color and texture, and about 14 points of articulation, including an articulated mouth, tail and multiple joints on the back legs.

REEBOK X JURASSIC PARK Footwear & Apparel Collection REVEALED!

A Collaboration 65 Million Years in the Making…the Reebok x Jurassic Park Full-Family Footwear & Apparel Collection is Revealed!

See the full press release below:

After teasing the news earlier this month, today, Reebok in partnership with Universal Brand Development, officially unveils the Reebok x Jurassic Park full-family footwear and apparel collection. The first-ever product line celebrates the legendary history of Jurassic Park and reimagines some of Reebok’s most well-known sneakers through the lens of Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s iconic 1993 film.

In addition to revealing the full collection, Reebok and Universal released a parody news report to give a more detailed look at the Reebok x Jurassic Park collaboration. The report, seen here, was a breaking news segment announcing a “partnership” between Reebok and InGen, the fictional bioengineering corporation responsible for recreating dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park film, and how the two spliced sneaker and dinosaur DNA to create a collaboration some 65 million years in the making.

Each footwear model in the Reebok x Jurassic Park collection pays homage to key characters and props from the original film. All silhouettes are thoughtfully constructed with intricate details incorporated from the outsoles to the sockliners for fans of the franchise. Highlights of the line include:

Instapump Fury OG ($200, GW0212) – Inspired by the iconic Jurassic Park guest vehicles, this Instapump Fury features a leather collar lining mimicking the SUVs seats and battle damage graphics on the sole and sides. The shoe is finished off with the official mark of Jurassic Park on the legendary pump ball. Available in adult and infant sizing.

Club C 85 ($110, GW0213) – The notorious Dennis Nedry makes his mark on the classic Club C from the floral print heel, reminiscent of the first shirt he wears in the film, to the zebra striped pony hair heel cap, which mimics the screensaver on Nedry’s computer. The shoe also features a bright yellow tongue in a rubber raincoat material in remembrance of Nedry’s failed attempt to escape from the island with the stolen dinosaur embryos.

Club C 85 ($100, GZ6322) – This Club C is inspired by Dr. Alan Grant in sneaker form with a tan suede upper, bandana collar lining and a denim-colored outsole. While both sockliners match the denim outsole, the right sockliner also features a Velociraptor claw graphic. Available in adult, grade school preschool and toddler/infant sizing. 

Classic Leather ($120, GY0570) – Inspired by Dr. Ian Malcolm’s fascination of chaos theory, this

Classic Leather is part simplicity, part utter chaos. The chaotic lateral side of the shoe celebrates Ian Malcolm’s fashion sense and flashy lifestyle with a range of textures and patterns from floral to sabretooth tiger. The more simplistic medial side features the Jurassic Park logo and a brooch jewel detail nodding to the necklace Dr. Malcolm wears throughout the movie.

Zig Devil Kinetica ($140, GY8275) – The contemporary sport-style Zig Kinetica II is redesigned to resemble the park staff’s SUVs. The tongue incorporates leather webbing with details nodding to the vehicle’s rearview mirror and the famed electric fence, as well as a speckled midsole inspired by the high-speed chases through mud.

Club C Legacy ($100, GY0856) – This Club C Legacy pays homage to playful and informative Mr. DNA, the cartoon character that explains the process of recreating dinosaur DNA. The clear TPU outsole reveals a Mr. DNA strand logo on the bottom of the left shoe and a mosquito graphic on the right shoe. The Club C Legacy is finished with a cracked egg collar and bubbled heel.

Jurassic Stomper ($200, GX5412) – Featuring a tough leather and neoprene upper, the Jurassic Stomper is strong enough to hold up to anything InGen workers encounter in the field. The shoe, inspired by the uniforms of the infield InGen staff, includes multiple patches which can be changed out depending upon your division within the morally questionable organization.

Pump Omni Zone II ($200, GY0549) – After combining dinosaur and sneaker DNA, Reebok was able to create a shoe some 65 million years in the making: the Pump Omni Zone II. Inspired by the carnivorous Dilophosaurus, this style-forward shoe features dinosaur graphics on the upper and a nubuck base material with hints of skived leather.

In addition to the adult-sized footwear, the line also features an additional Classic Leather and Zig Dynamica in grade school, preschool and infant sizing, as well as a full range of complementary adult’s apparel in unisex sizing. Highlights of the apparel collection include a Mr. DNA hoodie, utility vest to match the Jurassic Stomper and a variety of Reebok x Jurassic Park-themed t-shirts.

Rounding out the collection is an assortment of elevated footwear packaging. A portion of the boxes will resemble original Jurassic Park toy packaging from 1993, while others will draw on themes from the film including Nedry’s infamous fake shaving cream can, the cages and padlocks used in the park to keep dinosaurs contained, and even Mr. DNA.

The Reebok x Jurassic Park footwear and apparel collection is available on Reebok.com in unisex sizing beginning July 30. The Dennis Nedry Club C 85 and navy t-shirt will be available exclusively for Reebok UNLOCKED members.

Along with the press release, check out the full gallery of footwear here:

Independent Writers Pitch ‘John Hammond’ Prequel Story

A team of independent writers have collaborated with concept artists to realize an idea that focuses on the founder of Jurassic Park himself, John Parker Hammond.

The team have written a story that portrays a young John Hammond as he explores his early ventures that led to the creation of the infamous dinosaur park.

Synopsis:

IN THE BEGINNING

When “Jurassic Park” was first published over 30 years ago, no one could have predicted this science fiction/adventure novel would spawn a multi-billion dollar franchise with six feature films, a cartoon, comic books, video games, and enough merchandise to please any 10 year-old. However, while audiences have learned more about the central figures in the original film, and enjoyed additions to the cast of characters in the proceeding years, the audience has never really learned much more about the man behind the park, John Hammond.

“Hammond” is designed to be a limited series, starting with the titular character working as a poor performer in early 1950s Petticoat Lane with his suitcase flea circus, and ending with him setting out to gather a group of scientists, two children, and one unwanted lawyer to give them an adventure they’d never forget. Bringing back dinosaurs from extinction was no easy task, and “Hammond” chronicles the blood, sweat, tears, and determination it took to do so.

The two writers spearheading the project have encapsulated their vision in the form of both artwork and dioramas that they intend to share it – along with their storybook – with the gatekeepers of the franchise in the hopes of inspiring this story to life.

You can check out a gallery of photos below:
