    Beyond the Gates Returns With First-Ever Lex Murphy Figure and Phil Tippett Guest Appearance!

    What is it? It’s a Velociraptor. It’s inside.

    A new set joins Mattel’s Jurassic World Legacy Collection in this new episode of Beyond The Gates! Last month we showcased an item from The Lost World, this month we’re heading 87 miles Northeast of Isla Sorna back to Isla Nublar, with the Jurassic Park Kitchen Encounter Set.

    The Jurassic Park Kitchen Encounter brings one of the most beloved scenes from Jurassic Park to life, featuring a Velociraptor, Tim, and the first-ever action figure of Lex Murphy! Lex has long been requested since the Kenner days, and Mattel has finally brought her to life in collectible form. The episode shows off the new set in action, and goes behind the scenes with toy designer Rafael Bencosme so if you haven’t already be sure to watch.

    Not only that – the Dinosaur Supervisor himself Phil Tippett, guides us through his work contributing to the creation of this now infamous scene the toy set was based upon. It was an absolute honor to talk to Phil, and his work on Jurassic Park was absolutely key to making the scene – and velociraptors – so terrifying.

    Finally, this episode included one more surprise — the announcement of fans-first “Generation Jurassic” event occurring at Universal Studios Hollywood April 28th! While we can’t share more details about the event quite yet, we’re quite excited about it and will have more to say soon. We really hope to see you there!

    As always, stay tuned to Jurassic Outpost for more news – there’s a lot of exciting things on the horizon.

    Carnivores hunt on game trails. Do you want to set up base camp or a buffet?

    Beyond The Gates is back with an all-new Legacy Collection set from Mattel! Last month we debuted season 2 of the show with a first-look at the new collector line from Mattel, the Hammond Collection, and this month we’re continuing the Site B vibes with the Isla Sorna Capture Pack!

    In this episode we spoke with the legendary John Bell, the conceptual artist behind the iconic visuals of Jurassic Park and The Lost World. The vehicle in this set was directly inspired by his artwork on the film.

    It was a true honor to speak with such a legend and we can’t thank John enough for joining us on Beyond The Gates!

    Featuring Roland Tembo, a juvenile Parasaurolophus, and an InGen Hunter vehicle, this Legacy Collection set is a must-have for fans and collectors alike. With a slide-out jumpseat and firing projectiles, recreating the game trail sequence from The Lost World is now easier than ever!

    In this episode we also hear from Beyond The Gates veteran Rafael Bencosme who talks us through the design process of this 3-piece set, and shows us how John Bell’s artwork was directly used for inspiration while designing the vehicle.
