You may recall 1 year ago during the San Diego Comic Con
showed off three articulated 6" Jurassic World
action figures which included Owen Grady, Ian Malcolm,
and Velociraptor Blue
Since then things have been pretty quit on the 6" Jurassic World front. Back during Toy Fair
in February when Mattel failed to have any updates for this line, we did reach out to them and ask specifically what was going on with these. While light on any specifics, they did at least confirm for us the figures would still see a released and we should hear more as we got closer to the summer.
Well now it's summer and 1 week away from this years San Diego Comic Con, and with that the first official images have seemingly leaked out online via Jurassicoutpost.com
. I say leaked because they have no details to go along with the images other than the official title for this sub-line which looks like will be called The Amber Collection
. We can also see from the images the figures look to include display bases that look like amber.
Besides coming with Amber display bases, we can see the Velociraptor
pictured here is not the one named Blue in the movies like we saw at SDCC last year. Both Malcolm
and the Raptor
have seen some retooling done to them since last year, but that makes sense because those were very early prototypes Mattel had out which were actually glued together to keep from falling apart. I know because I remember waiting for them to glue Malcolm back together before I could take pictures of it. My guess while probably a simple repaint, the more generic Raptor shown here is an actual 4th figure, not originally shown at SDCC last year. Blue will likely still be coming when Owen gets released.
One thing that is not clear to me is whether these will be sold as individual figures or as two packs featuring 1 human figure and 1 Raptor figure. The 2-pack route seems more logical to me probably putting it in the $50 price range.
Other details like release dates, how or where these will be released and the exact cost also remain a mystery but hopefully those details will be coming before or during San Diego Comic Con which begins next Wednesday, July 17.
