Apart from Age of Ultron, Jurassic World is probably the most anticipated flick of this year. While the Jurassic World trailers to date have been keeping us in suspense on the ‘star’ of the show (No. We are not talking about Chris Pratt), the recent official toy images give us a look at the man-made genetic hybrid known as Indominous Rex. Yucks. That is one heck of an ugly dino, don’t you think? Even the name already freak us out. Not surprisingly, the Indominous Rex looks pretty much like the infamous T-Rex, but only scarier. Just look at those spikes! Which kind of reminds us of alligators and Godzilla, and the red eyes there? That is what nightmares are made of. Seriously. We are not sure when it will hit the shelves, but Hasbro has released more official images, including the packaging, along with pricing earlier last month for other garden variety.
The ’star’ baddie remains as elusive. However, the suspense will soon end as words have it that the first wave of Jurassic World toys will be hitting the stores in April. Among the releases are Jurassic World Chomping T-Rex, which will retail for $19.99 and measures a cool 18 inches long, the 12-inch Velociraptor Asst. that will go for $12.99, the $14.99 ’Growler’ which is has been the show’s staple, along with the Velociraptor, and finally there are the ‘Basher & Biter’ set going for $9.99 each. Obviously, these are toys, so don’t expect Hot Toy-quality details, but for fans, these will be the look you have been anticipating. Personally, I am not too fond of the Indominous Rex cos’ it looks too Godzilla-ish, but maybe that’s how it is cos’ it is after all, man-made.
