Jurassic Park Toys
« on: November 20, 2003, 01:51 PM »
As some of you may, or may not know, Jurassic Park is my main toyline that I collect on a regular and constant basis. I have been collecting Jurassic Park memoribilia since 1993 when it first came out. I still remember my first piece of JP Merch. a Jurassic Park Coloring book, and after that, a trip to McDonalds, where I got a plastic JP Cup.

When I say I collect Jurassic Park, I also collect The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Jurassic Park /// toys, and all their filler lines.

I also do Dioramas with my Jurassic Park toys, make customs, and I am also a big part of the ever growing JP toy collectiong community. I was around at InGenNet before it passed, and now I am a moderator at www.JPToys.com as well.

Some of my customs, dioramas, and toy reveiws can be found there.


So, did, or does anyone else here collect Jurassic Park toys, or have a particular toy they liked?

Discuss! :)

Holy crap. While most of the stuff makes my eyes hurt and burn with hate, I love that little Tyrannosaur model.

That is sweet :D.

That would go great with some King Kong poly.

I never bought the toys back in 1993 or beyond but I always thought they were cool looking. 

I remember being very tempted to buy the toys back in 1993 when I first saw them at a Wal-Mart in Fridley, MN.

Ovi! You're Rune Haako?! Haha, I hadn't logged in to this forum in ages, but I just had to reply when I saw this thread. Yeah, so this is DVRex in case you're wondering ;) Wow, I should change my username since I haven't been a teen in 3 years...

Anyway, in relation to the topic, I've been collecting JP stuff from Kenner/Hasbro since '93... Hehe, it's kind of funny to read about spiderpumpkin seeing the toys at Walmart, cause back in '93 we didn't have Walmart here in my area of So. Cal. There was just Kmart, Target, and Toys R Us. LOL, I remember Toys R Us was a big Orange and Black building and the aisles inside were soo freakin long compared to the way they are now. Hahaha.

In any case, I'm so excited that Sideshow is gonna be producing JP stuff. I expect some quality stuff... with alot more detail than from what Hasbro produced with the last JP3 line.

Looks like we're getting some repainted TRU exclusive Jurassic Park dinosaurs this summer.

Just saw this news while reading through some movie stuff.  I know absolutely nothing about the JP toys, so this might just be the repaint stuff mentioned earlier in this thread, I don't know.  It says "brand new", but who knows.  Just thought I'd pass it along for anyone interested.

I'd LOVE some nice, SA figures of the main characters from some of the films, specifically the first one.

LEGO secures Jurassic World license

Good news for LEGO AND JP fans... hopefully it's like LOTR and we get a few sets from the original movies too!
