Hasbro Jurassic World Indominus Rex Action FigureMaybe you liked the movie, maybe you didn't - but it did manage to make a new star with the Indominus Rex. From a licensed toy perspective, this is brilliant - since the 1990s, we've seen numerous garage kit makers and model manufacturers produce Jurassic Park-style dinosaurs, as the application of meat to the bones was a departure from previous artistic endeavors, and worth copying. The thing is, the I-Rex (in movie and toys) was an original creation that you won't find anywhere else - mixing the DNA of the T-Rex with other creatures, this is a mutant dino gone bad. (Yes, just like Chaos Effect in the late 1990s.) It has longer arms, a skull-like head, and enhanced intelligence on the big screen which means it's smart and no other toymakers can make one of these. For long-term collectibility, this one could be a doozy - Hasbro doesn't tend to look back on some of its kid properties, and so far, this is a kid property. What I'm saying is pick up those I-Rex toys before they vanish if you want one.

At roughly 7 1/2-inches from snout to tail, it's a decent little gal. She's not huge like the other toys, which sport nifty features and more articulation. This one is just a li'l grey dinosaur with jointed arms and legs, plus a tail-powered neck mechanism. I like it.

Hasbro Jurassic World Indominus Rex Action FigureThe figure is light on paint, but not devoid of it - note her light grey claws with matching skin coloring on her back. There are some spots colored on the skull as well, which really highlights how the design tried to look sort of like an actual bony skull. You can see where the holes are. Her white teeth act as a fence to the pink interior of her mouth, and she has creepy red eyes with black outlines to help them pop just a bit. It's not a perfect replica of the movie, but it's a pretty good little toy in its own right. It also stands without putting up a fight, which I really appreciate in my dino toys.

The tail-as-a-joystick was a nifty move, especially as Hasbro opted to skip electronics in this go-round. If you push down on her tail, the figure's head goes up a bit while the head turns left and her jaws pop open. It's actually really cool - while the Pachycephalosaurus' head just sort of pops forward a bit, this one actually looks around and can "roar." I consider this to be a real improvement.

As arguably the star baddie of the movie, the little I-Rex may or may not be available in a store near you. I occasionally see some at a Toys R Us, but most other stores (Walmart) are long gone. The sculpted detail and texture in the legs is certainly very good, plus there are little spiny bits on the back. The devilish eyebrows are a nice touch, and this figure gave Hasbro the sensible notion of "hybrid" dino toys - some of which you can buy right now. (Most of which you cannot.) If you like the idea of fake sci-fi dinosaurs, this is a good toy one. It's not nearly as out-of-this-world as some of the others from previous years, but it's nifty and as a true movie monster we don't see a lot of toys. Seriously - the new Star Wars flick got us exactly zero beasts and monsters, and I'm hard-pressed to name any really cool creatures from an American monster movie from a toy company that still delivers toys to kids other than maybe Bandai's Godzilla wares. I hope to see more things like this, but I don't doubt the I-Rex is going to go away forever (or a long time) after this movie line finally rides off into the sunset.
