Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Velociraptor Action FigureWhen I was in college, the first year away from home, I was utterly enamored with The Lost World: Jurassic Park: Chaos Effect dinosaurs. Neon repaints! Bizarre stylized mishmashes of long-dead creatures! I wasn't particularly well-off so I only picked up a few of the new-mold toys, but I'm making up for lost time now. I had to get the Hybrid Velociraptor. Sure, it's a green repaint of a green Velociraptor Charlie, but it's not like I got that one anyway. I'm also pretty sure the social contract requests that something green be done on March 23 and/or April 20.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Velociraptor Action FigureThe shiny raptor seems to be a grey plastic covered in a metallic green, complete with a reddish brown slathering of stripes on top. The teeth are painted white, the interior of the mouth is decorated, and the eyes are surprisingly good - there's a dark outline around the yellow orbs.

I don't think it translates well in a photograph, but the metallic coat on the lizard skin is remarkable. The metallic sheen makes it pop nicely, it really brings out all of the wrinkles and folds in the sculpt. It also may make you wince a bit at the lack of paint on his claws.

This creature's open, gaping wound is shaped differently from Blue's, but the general pose and look of the toy isn't all that different. While the toys of old had flesh wounds, this one is unique in that the creature shrieks out in pain and lights up when you touch it. This is kind of horrifying. Granted, I don't like light-up features on my realistic dinosaurs... but given the narrative presented by the sci-fi "this is some sort of weird mutant" storyline? This works for me.

There's not a lot to it, but it's on par with the other toys from Kenner and Hasbro over the years. An articulated jaw closes and roars when you pull down on his tail, plus his forearms and legs are jointed. The back legs on my sample were incredibly tight, and you have to bend the figure down a bit in order to get him to balance and stay standing unassisted. I would still advise you get him low enough so he can use one of his arms to prop him up - otherwise he'll probably fall down within the hour.

This is a good toy. Similarly sized non-electronic Raptors can be had for about $10, but the paint job on this one is so much more delightful. I know feathered raptors are all the rage, but that guy from Creative Beast has that covered. What I want are weird, quasi-amphibious screaming death lizards - and Hasbro delivered. A toy like this during the 1990s wouldn't have the size, the lights, or the paint job and probably would've been $10 in 1993 or 1994 dollars, so I can't fault this one. Hasbro has elected to eschew scale for this film, and that's OK - I can pretty much excuse anything in the name of Genetic Mutations.
