* First up is the Humvee, probably based on the HM General HMMWV that the InGen security division uses in Jurassic World. Want to know what HMMWV stands for? High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle. That's what. Apparently this is an older Matchbox sculpt that may have been used in the original The Lost World diecast line. It does look a bit dated and soft, but it also looks fairly accurate to the source material. The InGen logo is clean and neat, though.
* Next up is another one of the tour cars from the original Jurassic Park. Mattel gave us car #5 (the tour car Grant and Malcom were in during the T-Rex attack) as both a single packed vehicle and in the Island Explorers set so it's nice that we now have car #4, the car that Lex, Tim, and the blood sucking lawyer Donald Gennaro were attacked in. The muddy splatter effect on this one works really well, although I still want a "ruined" version of this car at some point.
* Other than the car number on the rear sides and the muddy paint across the bottom, these two cars are exactly the same (which is as they should be). Here's the review of the original release, '93 Ford Explorer #5.
* This black repaint of the 2014 Mercedes- Benz G-Class is a bit unusual as, like the green Textron Tiger, it seems to be made up for the toyline. It's a cool looking vehicle, though. it is a simple repaint of the silver and 2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class from the Island Transport Team set.
* Here's a side by side of the black version of the Mercedes- Benz G-Class and the standard silver version. The black version has tinted windows rather than the blue windows of the silver version and all of the labels, while the same, are printed in grey.
* Another repaint, Jeep Wrangler #29 has the distinction of appearing in two films. In the original Jurassic Park this is the car that transports John Hammond and Donald Gennaro from the heliport to the visitor's center. In Jurassic World it is the car that Zach and
* Here's a comparison shot of the earlier release, Jeep #18 (on the left) with Jeep #29. I still hope we get a Jeep #10 and I still want to track down the single packed Jeep #12, too.
* Last and certainly not least (although it absolutely is the smallest) is the Kawasaki Teryx4 LE. These are little maintenance flitting around Jurassic World that function like more powerful golf carts. The sculpt is really nice and features a lot of open space in the cab, which fits the design well.
* The back of the Kawasaki Teryx4 LE has a nice amount of sculpting, including actually having Kawasaki sculpted on the back. It's listed as #26 on the side as well.
Unimog). If you didn't pick up all of the other vehicles in the set it's probably worth looking into, too. Now, we need a few vehicles from Jurassic Park III in the next set of releases.
