Toy Review: Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 5020 from Matchbox: Jurassic World by Mattel
Model Number: FMX09
Length: 2 3/4ths inches
Non-Scalper Price: $1.25
* The front of the truck might be a bit plane but I do like the detail and the rugged look of this vehicle. It seems pretty roadworthy and designed for durability.
* The bed of the truck has a removable top that gives it the appearance of a covered cargo truck. The top is made from plastic and can slide off fairly easily to give you a few different looks for the vehicle.
* I really like the inside of the truck bed. You have four seats as well as some various supplies scattered around such as a pick axe, something round, and maybe a tool box or a flashlight of some sort. I love little details like this even though they're not the most intricate sculpts you'll find.
The Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 5020 is a very cool truck. Whether you're a Jurassic Park fan, a Matchbox collector, or maybe even an enthusiast for military styled vehicles, this has a lot to offer for only around a buck and some change. The removable covering is a cool feature and adds a bit more playability to the toy. It's a Great miniature and while it isn't as visually striking or as easily recognizable as a Jurassic Park vehicle, it is quite a cool vehicle.
For more Matchbox: Jurassic World vehicles, check out the following:
'10 Textron Tiger (Green)

Definitely my favorite of the Fallen Kingdom vehicles so far. I love Unimogs. :)ReplyDelete
Oh, and the Unimog mobile vet unit used in the previous film was a U 4000. The U 5020 is a much more recent model (obviously). I'd also love it if they did the U 1300 with the scissor lift observation platform and the U 2450 crew cab Unimog, both from The Lost World.ReplyDelete
It appears there’s a few currently unaccounted for cars in Matchbox’s Jurassic World line, which, according to their individual cardbacks, number eighteen:ReplyDelete
1. Off-Road Rescue Rig
2. Armored Action Truck
3. '14 Mercedes-Benz G 550
4. Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 5020
5. '10 Textron Tiger (green)
10. Deep-Dive Submarine
13. Armored Action Transporter
17. '93 Jeep Wrangler #9
18. '10 Textron Tiger (tan)
I wonder what what vehicles 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14 and 15 will be…?
I got my answer. According to a recent 5-pack called "Land Rescue Convoy," we're also getting:Delete
'93 Ford Explorer #4
'93 Jeep Wrangler #29
'14 Mercedes-Benz G 550 (colored black; another "concept" vehicle with no existing onscreen counterpart)
AM General HMMWV M1025 (the InGen one that comes ashore with the Tiger in JW)
Someone also mentioned we're getting Claire's Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé.
Interesting? Mattel/ Matchbox is going surprisingly deep with this little subline.Delete
I know, and I'm loving it! :DDelete
That still leaves three slots unaccounted for. I wonder what they'll do to round it out? Hopefully the G 63 AMG, considering they have the mold for it.
Just found the Land Rescue Convoy set last night. Working on a review of it right now. I also saw a set called All-Terrain Fleet that includes 5 rereleases of various trucks. I think the only difference from the single packed vehicles is a minor color swap on one of the trucks. Maybe the Unimog?Delete
The Unimog from the All-Terrain Fleet is gray with a gray canvas top vs. the single release which is olive drab with a tan canvas top.Delete
Ah, it seems I made a mistake. Upon closer inspection under better lighting, the differences between the two Unimogs are:ReplyDelete
Single Release - Olive drab body and a tan canvas.
All-Terrain Fleet Release - Gray body and a GREEN canvas, not a tan one as I'd previously thought.
