Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Spinosaurus Action FigureThe final hybrid? Well, the blue and gold Spinosaurus may be the last one we post here, and depending on Mattel's sense of fun it could be the last one we review here. If Mattel's 2018 take on Jurassic Park sticks to movies and "realistic" (that is to say, 1990s-chic) "scientific" dinosaur models items like this stunning Spino may be a thing of the past. As of now I still see the last few hybrid bashers and biters at Walgreens and Toys R Us semi-regularly this year, so get it if you can. I usually save that for the end, but trust me, I'll sell you on this bugger.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Spinosaurus Action Figure

The first version was a cream-of-chicken soup color, or as the kids call it "realistic." (Obviously we don't know the real coloring of it just yet.) For the Dino Hybrid line Hasbro decided to take design cues from some of the higher-end designer sofubi figures from Japan, giving a high-end $100 Hikari-style paint job to a $10-$13 dinosaur marketed to children. The brightly colored plastic toy has metallic hands and feet, painted claws and teeth, and gorgeous fades. A red fin fades to purple, and then to blue - and on top of that, there are black stripes. This is one of the best paint jobs I've seen in a mass-market product for kids, let alone this specific line. She has distinctive flesh-painted gums, painted white teeth, red eyes, white claws, and gold on her belly, hands, and feet. There's a lot going on here.

The JW cutie mark, now in black, graces her left drumstick Thanks to the coloring it doesn't stand out nearly as much as the painted flesh wound with exposed meat and bones. My sample has not only a slightly loose back leg, but stands perfectly. This is weird - the first Spinosaurus was nice and stiff, but tended to fall over here and there.

Hasbro Jurassic World Hybrid Spinosaurus Action FigureThis figure - and the Dilophosoaurus Rex, the Stegoceratops Blue, and the Carnoraptor are a real example of last-wave syndrome. Some stores got a bunch, some got none, and otns of fans have already moved on. It remains to be seen if anyone will care when Mattel does its thing, but I'm genuinely impressed with the last couple of waves just because of the level of painted detail we're seeing in what were largely unpainted and fairly cheap dinosaur toys a couple of years back. I can't imagine we'll ever see a dinosaur painted quite like this unless some bootlegger decides to do it, and frankly I wish I had a fancier figure display area so I could put this one in some white lighted box like an art piece. It's wonderful. If you see one, just take a few minutes to really look it over and compare it to other dinosaur toys. Hasbro knocked this one out of the park, and it's a shame the line has to end. At least it ended on a positive note.
