New ‘Jurassic World’ Toys Offer Our Best Look Yet at the Indominus Rex
In the Jurassic World trailer, careful editing ensured that we only catch tiny glimpses of the Indominus Rex, the genetically modified dinosaur cooked up by scientists to increase attendance to their theme park. But if you were expecting our first really good look at this guy to come from another trailer, you were wrong. This is the year 2015. These kinds of things get revealed in toy form these days.
Hasbro revealed a first look at their new line of Jurassic World toys at the New York Toy Fair and EW released the first official images online. Although we certainly cannot judge the Indominus Rex in his tiny plastic form, he has all the elements you’d expect from a creature made by scientists whose reach waaay exceeds their grasp. It has the basic shape of T-Rex, but those tiny arms have been replaced with claws capable of grabbing its prey. Its base color appears to be a sickly grey and its eyes an evil red, but its ability to camouflage its colors allow it to look like whatever right behind you. This scientific monstrosity, who roars, bites and even changes color, will retail for $35.
Hasbro also revealed some familiar faces in toy-form, including new Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor toys. These look exactly how you’d expect them to look. After all, why fix something that isn’t broken? Right now, the only thing missing is a Chris-Pratt-On-A-Motorcycle toy to accompany the Raptor.
Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12. The toys will be on shelves in May.
