Mattel Jurassic World Battle Damage Triceratops Action FigureScale was important for Mattel, but it's not perfect in terms of execution. Most of the figures are roughly 1:18 scale (for 3 3/4-inch figures), with the Battle Damage Triceratops being comparatively tiny - maybe it's a baby, or maybe its mother smoked. Like the minis, and the giant T-Rex, this one is a bit out of whack - but it's a good $10 toy and a good size for small hands. At 8-inches long, it would probably be a bit over 3-meters were it truly 1:18 scale, so let's go with that. As a green juvenile dinosaur, I like it.

The 5-inch long, 3-inch tall figure is about the same size as the typical Mattel Velociraptor, itself enlarged more than a bit thanks to the movies. A larger - but still small - Triceratops is also available in the Roarivores assortment. With multiple subspecies and ages, it could probably fit in your toy box and the multiple sizes makes it kind of interesting. The figure is lighter on paint than the larger, more expensive counterpart but still charming.

I love the sculpting - the scales, wrinkles, and damage marks are all pretty great. Its horns are molded in a different color and rubbery plastic, which is a nice way to save on paint and to prevent blindness. Deco is very simple compared to other dinos in the assortment. The triceratops' eye is yellow with a tiny black dot, with a painted beak and frill horns. A dusting of brown on its back keeps her from being a mono-color dinosaur like our fathers had, as does some odd cream color on the back of her legs. The red wound under the trap door is molded in red, which is simple and reasonable to expect for a toy like this. I appreciate it's unpainted, because over time it might look ugly with wear and tear. I would have loved painted toes or a wash, but for ten bucks it's pretty good.

There's an app interactive "DNA" mark on the sole of one foot, giving you some animation and trivia on a smart phone. More interesting is the trapdoor mechanism for battle damage - it rotates in and out easily, showing a "wound" when a bigger dinosaur bites down. It's really fun to futz with, and a great fidget feature. I like this more than permanently wounded figures from the old days, or easily-lost flesh pieces. Hasbro had some similar trapdoor features on its Jurassic World toys a few years ago, too.

The figure also has surprisingly good articulation - the neck moves around a bit in all directions, and each leg can too. The front legs can rotate and swivel out, and the back legs can swivel and have just a tiny bit of lateral movement. It's better than a lot of previous dinosaurs, and a good way to pose it on dirt or rocks and not look terribly awkward. It's not the most articulated one we've ever seen, but it's very good and they could probably repaint it and resell it for another 10 years.

Size aside, it's a good figure for the asking price - a similarly sized Hasbro dinosaur didn't have as many features or articulation, and Hasbro's recent Star Wars creatures cost more and do about the same amount of stuff. Dinosaurs never seem to truly go away - unlike movie monsters - as new kids love them for different reasons. They're not usually scientifically accurate when they come from Hasbro or Mattel, but they are interesting playthings. I'm really charmed by this one, were it a generic triceratops for a couple bucks cheaper I'd still nudge you to buy it. The movie branding is a nice touch, and I assume Walmart will have a ton of them over the coming months so you won't miss yours. It's not amazing, but it's certainly fun and that's more or less where my head is at these days.
