Something Has Survived!: Indoraptor from Jurassic World by Mattel
Dimensions: Around 8 inches tall, around 15 inches long
Articulation: Swivel/hinge "ankles", swivel/hinge "knees", balljointed hips, balljointed upper tail, balljointed lower tail, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, balljointed neck, balljointed head, and a hinged lower jaw.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* First up, the Indoraptor is quite large and quite well articulated. I'm not an absolute expert on Jurassic Park toys but I do believe this is the most well articulated action figure to ever come out of a Jurassic Park line. This guy is fun to pose and definitely feels like a solid, well made toy.
* One thing I love about the Indoraptor is that he seems to be able to go back and forth between walking upright on his hind legs (like a regular Velociraptor or the T-rex) to walking on all fours like a medieval depiction of a dragon. It's very, very creepy but makes for a great looking toy. I cannot wait to see this guy move on the silver screen!
* The headsculpt is great. Again, there are elements of a Velociraptor here but also very alien elements such as the bizarre bristles on the back of the head and the red eyes with a reddish flow or skin markings of some kind.
* The opening mouth on this guy is not only a cool feature that makes the toy more fun to play with but I'm also digging the sculpting and paint in the interior of the mouth.
* The detail on the figure is really good at the sculpt level. To be honest, the sculpt creeps me out a bit as the black color makes it look very snake-like. The gold strips are kind of unnatural, too, which takes this dinosaur design to a different level.
I haven't reviewed any other Indoraptor toys but I have reviewed a few other Jurassic World toys from Mattel, including:
