this section we looked at the art by Mark 'Crash' McCreery and compared
them to what Hasbro released as the dinosaurs we know that were on Isla
Nublar and Isla Sorna respectively in the films.
Figure(s): Tyrannosaurus rex, JP - Series 1; Thrasher T-Rex, Lost
World - Series 1; Bull T-Rex, Lost World - Series 1; T-Rex Hatchling from
Ian Malcolm, Lost World - Series 1; Tyrannosaurus rex, Jurassic Park 3
Suggested Modifications: While the T.rex from the original line is
impressive it lacks the roar of Its movie counterpart as well as the
coloration seen in the film. The red should be more of a brown like the
later Thrasher T-Rex from TLW toyline. The Thrasher T-Rex's coloration
matches patterns seen in the film as well as Crash's dinosaur coloration
drawings. The Baby T.rex that came with Ian is actually the proper scale
of the baby T.rex to the humans in TLW. We think the coloration is just
a tid bit off though for this. The Jurassic Park 3 T-Rex's coloration
scheme should match the Bull T.rex more. The Coloration on the Bull T-Rex
is a bit too vibrant for the toy, but it does match the art done by Crash
as well as the film counter part.
nublarensis Pack (JP/TLW)
Figure(s): Electronic Velociraptor, JP - Series 1; Standard Velociraptors,
JP - Series 1 & 2; Electronic Velociraptor, Lost World, Series 1; Electronic
Velociraptor, JP: Dinosaurs, Series 1 Canon Rating: Suggested Modficiations: Colors may seem a bit off in some instances,
but overall they match as we have two males and three females in this
along with an infant female. The coloration of the Raptors may be slightly
more vibrant than most, also some may wish to consider the "Cyclops Raptor"
canon, but simply put the final judgment was that Hasbro took creative
license for this female Raptor and Its fight in the climatic fight seen
in TLW as Sarah Harding makes her escape.
sornaensis Pack (JP3)
Figure(s): Female Velociraptor, Raptor Motorcycle Pursuit; Pack Raptor;
Canon Rating: Suggested Modficiations: Matches excellently. A minor complaint
is the Male Velociraptor may be close to the coloration seen in the films,
but it is not entirely exact. The same can be said for the Pack Raptor
too, as it needs more brown and purple in it.
Figure: Animatronic Spinosaurus Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: None
Figure(s): Triceratops, Jurassic Park & Baby Triceratops, The
Lost World Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: None
Figure(s): Stegosaurus Hatchling, Sarah Harding Lost World - Series
1, Stegosaurus (x2), Lost World; Stegosaurus, JP Dinosaurs - Series 1 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Infant should match the one on screen.
Figure: Pachycephalosaurus & Dinosaur Trainer, JP: Dinosaurs -
Series 1 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Coloration works better on this one instead
of the smaller The Lost World's Pachycephalosaur's coloration. It should
be noted the coloration on the larger TLW Pachycephalosaurus is correct,
but the size is entirely wrong. This animal matches the size in comparison
to the hunters in TLW, but it is not an exact match of the coloration
seen in the movie.
Figure: Gallimimus, JP - Series 2 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Coloration is a bit to bright, but matches
what we see in the film.
Figures: Male Baryonyx, The Lost World - Series 2 & Female Baryonyx
from Baryonyx and Dinosaur Trainer, JP: Dinosaurs Series 1 Canon Rating:
(Cannot Rate) Suggested Modifications: Baryonyx does exist in the JP film universe,
but no one has presently seen what they look like. Its been hypothesized
by us that the "Baryonyx" was in fact a Spinosaurus to explain
the Spinosaur's sudden appearance in JP3 for further information on this
visit our Notes section
Figure(s): Parasaurolophus (x2), The Lost World & Parasaurolophus
Hatchling, Tim Murphy, JP - Series 2 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: A female Parasaurolophus would be nice,
but this will have to do.
Figure: Ankylosaurus Hatchling from Ellie Sattler, JP - Series 2 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Something closer to the film's version
of the animal of a larger scale would be nice for in the future.
Figure(s): Compies from Alan Grant, JP3 Wave 2 release Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: These guys could be a tid bit smaller;
but still they look good.
Figure(s): Dilophosaurus, Jurassic Park 3; Dilophosaurus Hatchling
from Dennis Nedry, JP - Series 1; Standard Dilophosaurus, JP - Series
1 & 2; Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Basically these figures match the coloration
seen on the Dilophosaurus in the first film. We think the Jurassic Park
3 version of the Dilophosaurus is close to the coloration of the male
Dilophosaurs. Why the hatchling you may ask? Simply put we see a juvenile
in the original JP and later, in TLW, Its shown to us from a prop that
Dilophosaurs did reach their natural height.
Figure(s): Brachiosaurus Hatchling from Tim Murphy, JP Series 1 &
Brachiosaurus from Nick Van Owen, Lost World - Series 2; Brachiosaurus,
Jurassic Park 3 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: A male and female Brachiosaurus that was
a lot larger would be nice. The coloration isn't an exact match for the
Brachiosaurus in this line, but it comes close to the female Brachiosaurus
in the first film; however, Its more of brown dark grey than a blue light
grey. The infants match the coloration of the adults a bit more too except
for TLW's which should have a bit of orange coloration on it instead.
All in all they're close to being dead on movie twins.
Figure: Pteranodon, Lost World - Series 1 Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: Eliminate Capture Gear
Figures: Alpha Pteranodon, Jurassic Park 3; Female Pteranodon, Jurassic
Park 3; Infants from Pteranodon: Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs Canon Rating: Suggested Modifications: We used the JP: Dinosaurs Series 1 Pteranodon
infants for the infants instead of the Pteranodons Billy Brennan and Eric
Kirby came with.
