Mattel Jurassic World Gift Set 6-Pack Action FiguresWelcome to our new schedule! Due to the fact I've been writing something like 7-10 figure reviews every week since 2006, and we celebrated our 2000th review here last week and are about to hit 2,500 at Galactic Hunter, I need to cut back. I've been bad about keeping my collection organized and in order, so what we're going to be doing from here on out is 2 reviews at each Galactic Hunter and 16bit.com per week, plus Q&A, for 5 total articles. I assume most of you are not daily readers and will not notice - but if you've ever had to plan content for two web sites a month or more in advance due to business travel, you'll understand. And we now return you to a single review with six toys in it.

While not a branded Legacy item, the Gift Set 6-Pack is pretty great and colorful. I love the Kenner-ish deco of the Raptor, and I barely tolerate the fact they throw two Gallimimus at us when something like the other raptors, or maybe Kenner-color dinos, or something more varied would be exciting. Seriously, who the heck wanted two more Gallimimus?

These molds have appeared in other sets. The jumping Raptor has been in the story set (as blue), individually (as a Target Legacy item), and in green (in a Legacy gift set.) The Gallimimus were sold individually and in 2-packs. And in a 5-pack. There are several different Dimorphodon toys out in various colors, and it looks like this deco with this very DNA sticker will be sold later. The Dilophosaurus was also sold in a few sets, but this deco seems unique to this set. The Pteranodon will be sold in at least 2 more colors as single Target exclusive Legacy dinosaurs. So do you need this set? Maybe.

So, let's look at these fine ladies. The Gallimimus duo are the same as the Attack Pack mold sold earlier, warts and all. They can stand, but will topple over after a few days thanks to weight distribution and the plastic used. The deco seems unique here, but I haven't seen them all up close and they all seem to be different shades of beige. Or brown, or orangeish brown. It's a decent design and since they are flocks in the movies, I guess it's sensible to own more than one - but the design could be stronger. Also there's no real reason to have two other than as victims for the jumping Raptor toy. Each one has 5 joints, and will benefit greatly from having some sort of support in the form of a pole or a stand.

That's the low point - the high set is a Velociraptor that looks vaguely like the old Kenner toys from the first movie. With red eyes and brown skin, it can "pounce" thanks to its big, rubbery feet and spring-loaded legs. Just have her "sit" and she leaps to pounce on figures a few inches away - it takes some getting used to, but I had her slaughtering Batman in no time. the sculpting is among the best in the line with amazing wrinkles and a determined stare. Her mouth opens, plus the arms are ball-jointed claws of death. I was a little concerned that this set might be boring, but it turns out the brown 1990s-coloring is a real gem of a toy. It's fun, and I love the painted black claws too. This may well be the reason you need to buy this set - I went from worrying I overpaid to having a ton of fun with this one.

The Dilophosaurus is the Attack Pack mold again, now with grey spit and grey skin. She has more paint, with a blue back and the same great face paint. The frill is just fine, with a light grey and blue veiney patterns. It's not my favorite, but it's unique and distinctive. There are 4 jointed limbs and an articulated frill, and it's perfectly OK. The skin is well-textured, but the other spitters may be more to your liking. If you're building out dinosaur dioramas, I'm sure you'll appreciate the variety.

Another mold you'll see mostly at Target is this Pteranodon, in a color that doesn't quite match the app or publicity shots. This one is grey with dark, deep red markings on the beak, wings, and feet. It's kind of bland, but you'll probably appreciate the wrinkles sculpted on the wings and the intricate head paint. The eyes are particularly striking, as is the fully-painted mouth. To be consistent with movie appearances, it also has teeth - and while there are flying dinosaur fossils with teeth, the Pteranodon wasn't one of them. Push a button on her back, and the wings flap. It's a neat toy, but small and simple - not really impressive. If it weren't for the above-par head paint you could be forgiven for assuming this was one of the older movie toys. With a jointed neck and jaw, there's not a lot going on here. It's decent.

Rounding out the set is a Dimorphodon, and it's my favorite paint job yet. It's green with colorful wings, going from orange to red. The ball-jointed neck features a face complete with painted mouth and comical overbite, making it look a little silly. Jointed legs join ball-jointed wings, making this smaller toy pretty good given that it's not particularly meaty. I like the eyes, and the articulation allows it to stand or look like it's flying. It's not amazing, but they did a good job ensuring it'd be good enough that you're not bored with it. The bright colors certainly help.

Mattel surprised me by putting out two $40-$50 sets at Target the same day - with three overlapping molds, to boot - and somehow missed some classic favorites. Maybe it's because of the price point, but you have got to admit the lack of four-legged dinosaurs of any kind was a bit surprising. It does a decent job giving you some variety, but it would've been nice to see something else subbed in for one of the two Gallimimus figures. Having said that, it's still endearing and entertaining. I don't doubt the raptor will be the crown jewel from the set, so get yourself one if you're so inclined.
