Mattel Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stygimoloch The scale is a mixed bag with these little guys, but Mattel's Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stygimoloch "Stiggy," and Triceratops are pretty great. Hasbro's small 3-packs and blind bags for Walmart were good, but these have one point of articulation each. Mattel seems to be consciously trying to one-up them on their action offering with bigger and arguably better mini dinosaurs. The "Dino-Mites" brand name on the cartons doesn't hurt, but the end user will never see this.

The figures are indeed small, but pretty good. This particular set pulls from the blind bags, so you might get some duplicates between this and the blind assortment - but you'll need to wade through both for a complete set. Supposedly the T-Rex is exclusive to this set, but it's also on the checklist for the blind bags. Maybe there's a deco variant?

Mattel Jurassic World Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stygimoloch

The Tyrannosaurus Rex is small with an opening jaw and shiny metallic skin. She has tiny black eyes and "FML71" stamped on his foot, with the Jurassic World symbol on the other sole. The enlarged feet are helpful in keeping the figure upright, making for a surprisingly sturdy figure right out of the box. I don't know how it will hold up to a toy box over time, but as it is now it's good. The skin shows a lot of detail, with the metallic plastic combining with the paint to really bring out the wrinkles and detail. Other than the dot black eyes, this is a really impressive little piece for the impulse price point.

Supposedly Stygimoloch "Stiggy" has a significant role in the movie - as it is, she's a bonehead dinosaur with a nicer crest of horns out the back. Her feet aren't huge, but she stands up well. The head has a lot of sculpted detail, clearly showing someone put a lot of love into this tiny sculpt. At 3-inches long, there's not a lot for it to do other than stand and look cool. A neck joint ensures it looks extra cool, as the bone head can be posed head-butting or looking relatively normal with eyes looking forward.

The Triceratops, or Torosaurus toddler, or whatever, is also good. It's long, it has a green shade on its back, and grey horns. The black eyes shine pretty well, with scale detail that reminds me of some of the very best dinosaur toys I had as a kid. She has a jointed neck for posing and combat, which makes it more interesting than Hasbro's static grey toy from a few years ago. Mattel's new one is a little more lively, with more color, and it's also a lot more expensive. Walmart's Hasbro tubes were $4.44 for 3, Mattel's are $9.99 for 3.

Safari's Dinosaur "Toob" packages get you over a dozen dinosaurs for roughly the same price, often with more colorful sculpts. The sizes aren't quite the same and there's no articulation, and the lack of branding may make a difference as kids asking for the toys go. They're neat, they're cool, and because of the movie tie-in there will be some sort of ongoing collector interest. I'm sure kids will be relatively happy with any ol' dinosaur, but as a budding collector relaunch these are nice. At $3.33 a pop these are priced similarly to Minecraft figures, which are also competing with similarly sized toys from a vending machine without branding that are arguably about as good - just not the thing. Toys like this show just how valuable a trademark can be to toys that could've been made from the public domain at a fraction of the price. They're good - but I would argue you'd be better served buying the bigger toys or other dinosaurs.

These are a superior product with a better center of gravity, improved paint, and actual articulation, but they're charging you accordingly. Consider a 3 3/4-inch human figure with dinosaur companion is about $8, those might be a better buy overall.
