‘Jurassic World Primal Ops’ Game Coming Soon – But What Is It?

We have some great news for Jurassic fans and gamers! Universal recently filed a trademark for the name “JURASSIC WORLD PRIMAL OPS” under the Computer & Software Products & Electrical & Scientific Products category. The description provided for this trademark says:

Downloadable interactive multi-media software for playing games; downloadable software in the nature of a mobile application for playing games and accessing entertainment content for use with computers, portable handheld digital electronic communication devices, mobile devices, wired and wireless communication devices, and video game consoles; downloadable computer game software for wireless and electronic mobile devices, mobile phones, hand-held electronic devices, and video game consoles; computer game discs; video game discs; wireless communication devices and wireless communication systems comprised of computer hardware and recorded software for the transmission of audio, voice, and images.

While the description does contain verbiage regarding computers, we believe that ‘PRIMAL OPS‘ will (sadly) most likely be a new mobile ‘Jurassic’ game. However, we do hope this will be a proper larger scope and high game hitting consoles and PC, where there is a serious lack of story-driven Jurassic experiences. While properties like Star Wars continue to excel at providing diverse and quality gaming experiences, Jurassic’s approach has leaves a lot to be desired, only really delving in park building simulation games or lower budget mobile games and VR gimmick titles.

That leaves us to wonder what kind of game this will be – based on the name, we could be getting some kind of first-person dinosaur tracking/hunting game, or maybe the long awaited survival adventure similar to ‘Alien Isolation’ and ‘Jurassic World Aftermath’ (the latter of which is seeing a story expansion September 30th). Given the story post Fallen Kingdom, we could imagine this being a game where you track down and capture escaped dinosaurs across the North American countryside – which would tie in to 2022’s Jurassic World Dominion quite nicely.

It’s worth noting that over the past couple of years, Universal Games has been running ads for mockup Jurassic World mobile games (embedded above), and if you would click the link it would take you to a survey about the concept. It’s likely that Primal Ops is the proper realization of this collection of user research, which frequently were built around top-down shooters much like The Lost World game on Sega Genesis.

The game was described as the following:

Dinosaurs roam the earth. Can your team save
them all?

Dinosaurs have been released and are running
wild. It’s up to you and your team to rescue the
dinosaurs from poachers, relocate dangerous
carnivores to safety, and train your team of
human experts and dinosaur companions as you
encounter increasingly difficult situations.

Features:

– Real-time Jurassic World action-combat gameplay

– Strategize your team upgrades and train your dinosaur companion to unlock challenging missions

– Outsmart enemies as you compete to rescue your next dinosaur

– Create your own playstyle through epic powerups hidden inside the levels in each mission

Ultimately not much is known about the game at this point, or if that mockup game and user survey were related, but be sure follow Jurassic Outpost for the latest updates!

Back to school will be here before we know it, and Sprayground wants kids to step into school with the most unique accessory possible. This new edition in partnership with NBC-Universal, has the iconic black and red OG Jurassic Park logo with a slick design to mimic the mouth of a Sprayground’s shark mouth art piece – creating the most coveted backpack among the Jurassic Park fans, who are all set to explore Isla Nublar while looking fresh! 

Not only is the backpack extremely practical and reliable, but it takes consumers back to the 90’s in the most fashionable way. With its fuzzy details, and the original Jurassic Park logo from 1993, this loud design promises that a tyrannosaurus rex will see you even if you don’t move.

New ‘Jurassic Park’ Nedry and Hammond TUBBZ Cosplaying Duck Collectibles

Are you a ‘Jurassic Park’ collector looking for unique collectibles? Or do you just really like rubber ducks? Look no further than the cosplaying duck figurines from TUBBZ! Numskull Designs is adding their first two ‘Jurassic Park’ cosplaying ducks to their collection: John Hammond and Dennis Nedry.

Both ‘Jurassic Park’ cosplaying duck figurines are approximately 3.54″ tall, and come in a collector’s bathtub display box, featuring the ‘Jurassic Park’ logo and the ability to stack on top of other TUBBZ.

John Hammond – the creator of “Jurassic Park” has earned his place in the duck pond.  He’s instantly recognizable with his signature straw hat, white shirt, glasses, beard and walking stick.  We would know him anywhere – even as a duck.

Dennis Nedry – there’s no mistaking Dennis the Duck in his trademark black glasses, “Jurassic Park” uniform, plus security tag complete with his new duck face, and he’s carrying the Barbasol can – let’s hope he’s not sneaking any dinosaur embryos into the duck pond!

Each figure has a recommended retail price of $12.99, and preordering options can be found through the Numskull site.

What do you think of these unique collectibles? Are there any other ‘Jurassic Park’ characters you’d like to see get the cosplaying duck treatment? Let us know in the comments!

‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Season 2 Coming January 22 – New Trailer!

Adapt. Evolve. Survive. Everything’s at stake in the new ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ season 2 trailer, which will drop on Netflix on January 22nd!

Last season ended with the Camp Cretaceous kids trying to escape the island, only to reach the dock and find out they had been left behind. In the season 2 trailer, we see Darius, Yaz, Brooklynn, Kenji, and Sammy working together to figure out how to survive on an island inhabited by dinosaurs. The group heads for Main Street to find a phone, only to find the T.rex has set up her new lair there! This season promises more human-dinosaur interactions (some filled with danger) including compys, brachiosaurus, T.rex, baryonyx, ceratosaurus, sinoceratops, parasaurolophus, ankylosaurus, and many more! The trailer doesn’t feature, possibly everyone’s favorite character, Bumpy, who we last saw approaching an unconscious Ben who was separated from the rest of the campers last season.

What challenges will the campers face in season 2? Will Ben and Bumpy reunite with the rest of the group? Who else is on the island?

Iron Studios Announces Two New Jurassic Park Statues

The epic final battle scene from Jurassic Park is now available in statue form from Iron Studios!

Coming in at an impressive 1/20 scale, this statue is over 18 inches tall and 14.5 inches wide! This limited edition statue features the terrifying scene where the velociraptors are surrounding our beloved characters as the T. rex bursts into the visitors center.

The figures of Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Lex, Tim, two velociraptors, and the T. rex are highly detailed and all hand painted.

On a base imitating marble, after all Iron Studios spared no expense, with the film’s logo adorning the front, the fossils fallen at the feet of the figures, with Lex and Tim Murphy protected by Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant from two Velociraptors and the imposing T-Rex circling ready to capture the Velociraptor that is about to jump on Alan, Iron Studios presents it’s statue “The Final Scene – Demi Art Scale 1/20 – Jurassic Park – Iron Studios”.

After the collapse of the first park on Nublar Island, some of the most dangerous predatory species escape from their cages, including mortal Velociraptors. Seeking refuge and protection in the control room at the visitor center, doctors Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, along with the children Lex and Tim Murphy, grandchildren of John Hammond, the park’s creator, are chased by raptors. The four protagonists run out of the control room and reach the main lobby, and they find themselves trapped when one of the predators advances to strike, jumping on their prey, is unusually captured in the jaws of a T-Rex, which invades the space in search of his hunting. Thus, the giant tyrant king of the dinosaurs, involuntarily becomes the savior of the group, when confronting and being confronted by the Velociraptors, giving the scientists and the children a chance to escape.

This unforgettable and striking sequence from the movie Jurassic Park, created by the master Steven Spielberg, once again comes to life at the hands of Iron Studios, which replicates the final scene of this 1993 Universal Studios superproduction. Faithful in the smallest details, relive that experience in your collection and don’t be surprised if in your subconscious you hear the unmistakable roar of the T-Rex every time you catch a glimpse of this piece.

This beautifully rendered scene is up for pre-order now for $899.99, with an expected release date of September 30, 2021. You can find all the information on Iron Studios.

Iron Studios also announced a brand new Muldoon and Raptor statue this week during their livestream! At 1/10 scale, they captured the moment when the “clever girl” velociraptor is jumping to attack Muldoon. The detail and paint on the raptor looks phenomenal in this first promotional image. While we can’t see much of Muldoon’s face, the attention to detail on his socks and thigh muscle is spot on. We can’t wait to see more images of this one!

Based on other 1/10 scale statues on Iron Studio’s site, we’re guessing this figure will be at least $150, so start saving now if this is something you’d like to add to your collection! We’ll keep all the Jurassic fans up to date as we get more information from Iron Studios in the coming months!

Let us know your thoughts on these new statue in the comments! Will you be adding either of them to your collection?

Colin Trevorrow Talks ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ on Comic-Con@Home Panel

The Directors on Directing panel released today as part of San Diego Comic Con’s Comic-Con@Home. Colin Trevorrow was one of the featured directors on the panel who discussed their past, present, and future projects.

In the panel, he touches on ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’, ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, and ‘Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock’. Check out the video below!

Around the 5:00 mark he talks about making the emotional case for “Jurassic Park 4”.

At 11:50 he talks about meeting with Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum and discussing them reprising their roles for ‘Dominion’.

At 18:06 The announcement that ‘Dominion’ would resume filming (this panel was recorded in June) and the challenges they are facing. During the hiatus the script wasn’t changed much and they were able to “put several sequences through the visual effects pipeline”.

At 24:00 Each ‘Jurassic’ movie getting more practical and ‘Dominion’ will have more animatronics than they had in the previous two. The digital extensions for animatronics have been improving so they will be able to match the textures on the animatronics. All of the dinosaurs have lighting references so they can see how light reacts with the skin and the environment. (How cool would it be to see the room with all the dinosaur references?!)

At 29:10 ‘Battle at Big Rock’ was shot handheld in VR by Colin.

At 33:27 changing from ‘Jurassic Park‘ to ‘Jurassic World’ took some convincing.

At 56:50 Paul McCartney visited the studio while Colin and Michael Giacchino were recording the soundtrack for ‘Jurassic World’.

Those are all the ‘Jurassic’ related clips, but I recommend watching the whole panel as Colin, Robert Rodriguez, and Joseph Kosinski give some interesting insights into the world of directing. There’s even a cool moment for Star Wars fans towards the end.

Bryce Dallas Howard Shares Battle Damage Photos From ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Set

Bryce Dallas Howard took to Twitter yesterday to share some behind the scenes photos from the filming of Jurassic World: Dominion! The cast and crew have been back at work for a couple weeks after filming at Pinewood Studios was suspended earlier this year.

After sharing a “throwback Thursday” photo of her and Chris Pratt during the filming of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Chris prompted her to show off the bruises she’s earned from doing stunts on the new film. It looks like she has major bruising on both her arms and a huge bruise on her leg!

Judging by these bruises, it looks like Claire will have her fair share of action in this next movie! Any guesses on what kind of stunts Claire will be involved in? (Climbing trees? Scaling electric fences? Using gymnastics to kick a dinosaur out of a window?)

Let us know your guesses in the comments!
