Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Armor Indominus Rex Action FigureWhen I saw the Hybrid Dino line, including the new Hybrid Armor Indominus Rex at Toy Fair, my reaction was basically waving my arm around, pointing, and saying "I'll take all of this." (And given how none of the toy press bothered to shoot it except me, it seems I'm alone.) I was smitten - the movie's line was good, conservative yet entertaining. This is, I assume, the result of a tragic accident involving the designer, numerous cans of Monster Kolor paint, and a stack of Melt Banana CDs. Oh, and a freak budget accident, because the paint jobs are way too good when compared to their movie-year kin.

The I-Rex (shall we name her Iris?) is molded in the typical grey color, but then there's a pretty good grey stripe painted on the top. Her claws are also painted, but they slapped on an added layer of iridescent purple paint to really make it sparkle - and on top of that, extra yellow striping. In terms of paint alone, this figure kicks the previous Indominus Rex [FOTD #1,455]'s tail into next Tuesday. It is, unquestionably, a better-looking piece.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Armor Indominus Rex Action FigureIt's the same mold as last time, with the same mechanisms - just an absurd amount of plussing up for the price. The Bashers/Biters seemed a little light on paint, but I guess Hasbro was being stingy? Or maybe made a return on their investment so now everybody gets full-blown wardrobe improvements and paint that makes you cry? There are little subtle hexagonal patterns around her expertly-decorated eyes, and the jagged/broken teeth are decorated too. I liked the previous ones - they were good, decent for the asking price - but this thing? This should be like a $25 convention exclusive, if Jurassic World fans turned out for such events. In terms of deco alone, this figure - along with the Hybrid Velociraptor [FOTD #1,425] - fly in the face of Hasbro's current MO. The paint is stunning. The coverage is exquisite. So why aren't the other figures quite this good? Or why are these so perfect?

The tail mechanism works the same as before - the head goes back and the jaw opens. Very cute. The JW cutie mark remains present, with the extra purple and bone color paint making a de-armored figure a more attractive proposition than her predecessor. The design is fundamentally the same, but the decision to make what is effectively a deluxe rerelease at the same price boggles the mind. I like it, I assume you will as well.

You don't need this toy - but if you missed the previous Indominus Rex, run - do not walk - to your favorite online toy store and get one. I got mine from Entertainment Earth (I work there) and I haven't seen them in the wild as of my writing this, so good hunting to you. For ten bucks, it does enough to be interesting. I'd buy one. Heck, I did. So should you.
