Something Has Survived!: Dimorphodon (Attack Pack) from Jurassic World by Mattel
Length: 1 1/4ths inches tall, 8 1/4ths inch wingspan
Articulation: Hinged hips, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel/hinge neck, hinged lower jaw.
Non-Scalper Price: $8 dollars
* As I mentioned in the intro, the Dimorphodon has quite a bit of articulation for a smaller figure. Swivel/hinge wings and a swivel/hinge neck make him rather fun to play with and pose in various menacing ways.
* One of the things I like about the Dimorphodon that seems like a huge improvement over the larger and a bit more expensive Pteranodon from the Jurassic World: Legacy line is that the Dimorphodon can both stand on it's legs and look forward and take a more natural looking flying pose. I wish the Pteranodon could have done that.
* The headsculpt is good. I like the eyes, the teeth, the opening jaw, and the overall appearance. The Dimorphodon definitely has the "Jurassic Park look" that make the dinosaurs from those films stand out.
* I like the colors on this figure. The overall gray color looks good and there is a nice light black paint effect that adds some shading and texture to the top of the wings. Underneath the wings are some red splotches, giving the toy just a bit more color.
* While all of the Jurassic World figures I've reviewed thus far have featured this symbol on the bottom of a foot, the Dimorphodon's is on the bottom of its wing. It's a bit of an eyesore, really.
This is the first Dimorphodon I've reviewed on the site. For more Jurassic World toys from Mattel, check out the following:
