Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Carnoraptor Action FigureFor unlawful Carnoraptor! This is the Velociraptor Blue [FOTD #1,526] body with new deco and a new head. Such is the way of things when a line dies down - new toys are rare, but variations are increasingly likely. Sure, the Pteramimus shipped this month but Bashers and Biters relied on new paint and one or two new parts - so you'd get armor, or a new head. This one got a new head. It's pretty. I assume Mattel won't have the dinosaur-sized stones to put out something this weird, at least not for a few years into their license (which kicks off in 2018).

This devilish dinosaur has two big horns above its metallic gold face. The colors are striking - these seem to be done more in the vein of designer toys, those $100 vinyl guys you won't buy from Japan. A bright red plastic body may be the brightest toy you see in the aisles this month, measuring in at about 7 1/2-inches long from nose to tail. It's small, but not tiny - it's a big enough canvas for a splash of metallic purple paint, brown stripes, and yellow outlines. Her claws are painted, as are her teeth, tongue, and inner mouth - they did a nice job here.

The JW tramp stamp is retained, as is the bleeding gash with exposed bones. Hasbro (and Kenner) have had a thing for life-ending injuries on the dinosaur toys, and I never really understood why. I don't want my toys to be dead or dying, and the blood red wound is only barely darker than the electrifying skin. It stands out - it's an art piece masquerading as a children's toy. One you won't buy, because you gave up fun for Lent when you turned 17 and labor under the delusion that you're a mature adult buying collectible toys, turning your nose up at things that are awesome and will probably command a pretty penny later for many reasons, not the least of which is you didn't buy it now.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Carnoraptor Action FigureThe Carnotaurus/Velociprator hybrid hits my brain's pleasure centers so hard it almost hurts. How can it not? It trades on the bright neon colors of Chaos Effect toys while maintaining the existing form factor for Jurassic World. It's a clever way to get more out of the Raptor mold, and as it's a genetically engineered mutant it also buys Hasbro a ticket far, far away from scientific realism. While new discoveries will change our view on what the Velociraptor actually looked like, nothing can ever come from the world of science to tell us this Carnoraptor is any less accurate than it is today. It stands, it's pretty, and it's closer in look and feel to a toy than a prop from a movie. I like this. Me-at-7 would see such a fanciful creation as a total waste of time, but me at 17 would eat this up. I'm older than that now, so I'm all about the weirdness. Oh - and if you move the tail down, this creature's head moves and his jaw opens.
