Toy Review: Deep-Dive Submarine (Battle Damage) from Marchbox: Jurassic World by Mattel

    Today I'm checking out the last of the five new Battle Damage Jurassic World Matchbox vehicles that are exclusive to Wal-Mart: The Deep-Dive Submarine. The Deep-Dive Submarine appeared during the incredible beginning of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which was one of the best parts of the film. The Deep-Dive Submarine and its inhabitants have a fateful meeting with the Mosasaurus (one of my favorite Jurassic Park creatures now), which was pretty terrifying. That encounter is the inspiration for this vehicle which features the same Deep-Dive Submarine model that was released earlier this year as a single pack and in the Island Transport Team 5-pack and adds a cracked paint job to the bubble. Let's check this one out a bit more closely after the break...

 The Facts:

Model Number: FMX07

Length: 2 1/8ths inches

Non-Scalper Price: $1 dollar

* Here is the Battle Damaged model of the Deep-Dive Submarine on the left with the original Deep-Dive Submarine on the right.  The only difference between the two, despite the cracked bubble, is that the Battle Damage version has a lighter gray bottom and a slightly duller yellow paint job.
 The Positives:

* Again, this vehicle is pretty much the same as the original version of the Deep-Dive Submarine with the cracked dome being the most noticeable difference. I really do like this addition. It looks pretty cool, makes sense in the context of the film, and makes for a fun toy to play with alongside of the giant Mosasaurus.

 The Deep-Dive Submarine with Battle Damage is another fun entry in this series. It's possibly the least different vehicle from the standard release but it works really well. It's a Good and a 1/2 vehicle that really stands out in the line where most other vehicles are jeeps and such. I don't have any more Matchbox reviews lined up but I am on the lookout for the Mercedes- Benz G36, the Mercedes- Benz GLE Coupe, the Triumph Scrambler, and the Kawasaki Brute Force. Hopefully I'll track them down soon!
