solid green Textron Tiger I reviewed earlier in the week this one is also a vehicle with a color scheme made up for the toyline. This creation takes the body of the 1993 Jeep Wrangler staff cars from the original film but gives it the paint scheme and logo design of one of the Jurassic World Mercedes Benz staff cars. It's an interesting concept and, for around a buck, I'm willing to allow some experimentation in this line. Let's check out this interesting concept vehicle after the break...
Model Number: FMW98
Length: 2 1/2 inches
Non-Scalper Price: $1.25
* Here's a comparison between the '93 Jeep Wrangler #9 reviewed today and the '93 Jeep Wrangler #18 from the Matchbox Jurassic World: Legacy Collection Island Explorers collection. As you can see the bodies are the same but the windshields, tops/roll bars, and wheels are different. I believe this one is a full repaint of the '93 Jeep Wrangler #12 that I don't own yet.
* To be honest, this is a very slick vehicle and I kind of like the idea that Jurassic World would have taken a few of the older service jeeps and fixed them up, given them a new paint job, and put them back in service as staff vehicles. The paintjob looks good and the features like the lightbar on the top and the covered cab are pretty cool.
* This Jeep Wrangler has the same paint scheme and labeling as the 2014 Jurassic World Mercedes Benz including the Jurassic World logo, the #09 designation, and the "For Official Use Only" warning. The printing is very neat and clean on this one, just like on the rest of the vehicles in the series.
* I like the presence of the top on the jeep but I can't understand why the top is translucent? The windows, maybe, but not the full top. It looks kind of strange to be honest.
