Hasbro Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex Action FigureI certainly don't need more Tyrannosaurus Rex toys but this one came in the box with the rest. I jumped on the bigger chomping one earlier - and my guess is we can expect more and more recolors - but this one I like. As the consumer I suggest comparing prices because this one is about ten bucks and the next size up is significantly bigger and meaner, and Amazon price wars knocked it down to a paltry $15. Which is stupid cheap. This simpler, smaller toy is going to be ideal for some parents but the bigger one is unquestionably a more impressive toy with more obvious visual value. From tail to nose, this one is about 9-inches tall and with its larger head and smaller body, if you squint, it looks sort of like a fried chicken drumstick.

This creature's movie role was little more than a crowd-pleasing cameo with the means to end the movie in a hurry, because if you make a dinosaur movie without the T-Rex the kids are going to be mad. The classic beast is getting a lot of toy love from the tiny tube size to the larger price points, so keep in mind that there's no shortage of varieties out there in the world of 2015. Parents and collectors, do your research. Kids... do what your allowance and proximity allows.

Hasbro Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex Action FigureThe sculpting is, unsurprisingly, good. With no soft dino skin or easily lost chunks of flesh, what you see is what you get. She's wrinkly and has a variety of textures, with big skin creases and a sort of elongated droop that does wonders to make this toy feel larger despite its teeny, tiny, small-even-for-Yoda arms. They're jointed, as are the back legs. Balancing the figure is easy and painless, she'll stay standing on your desk even if you bump into it a bunch. Hasbro didn't skimp on the deco - there's room for improvement on the back and tail, though. We got a nicely painted striped head with yellow eyes and a nice outline to make them pop, plus painted teeth and a decent mouth interior. Her foot claws and belly are also painted, although I'm beginning to think painting the belly is a waste given how much more visible the back seems to be here. Also included are the obligatory "JW" marking and some exposed meat and bone, because this is a Jurassic Park toy after all.

What I find the most charming about the toy is its action feature. The tail operates the head like a puppet. Move it down, and the head goes up. Tilt it to the side, and the jaw opens. I find it far more engaging than the larger counterpart in that respect, but it doesn't look as cool for the money. It's a toss-up - it's neat, but not awesome. It's a great feature, though, and one I hope Hasbro deploys on its other lines. I could see this being great in Star Wars beasts down the road, were they so inclined.

For ten or so dollars, you get your money's worth with this one. The many visible screws on the side you don't see while it's packaged may disappoint you, but the fun of the tail mechanism should make up for it. A recolor in green is scheduled for release shortly, so if you want to go that route you do have that option. I like it, but the proportions on the larger toy may be more to your liking if you have access and the cash to spare. This is a fine stocking stuffer or birthday gift, though, but I'm sure those with a massive dinosaur toy box have a sufficient gaggle of this creature as it is.
