Mattel Jurassic World Legacy Dr. Ian Malcolm Action FigureSomeone must really hate Lex at this point. As the Jurassic World toys rolled out, Mattel gave us word that we'd eventually get Dr. Ian Malcolm. He debuted about six months after Grant, Ellie, and Muldoon - much like the original Kenner figure which debuted about a year late in the 1990s. Why don't people like Jeff Goldblum more as a launch toy? I have no idea. He's the first one we all want.

My figure had a sightly deformed thumb - the classic Boiling Water Trick fixed it, you could try your favorite plastic reshaping technique. The plastic memory got it back in place after a couple of seconds in a centimeter of boiling water. Once you fix that, this is your perfect 3 3/4-inch Jeff Goldblum toy.

With clear smoky glasses, this figure has a pretty tip-top likeness. Mattel's sculptors did a wonderful job, and their painters applied enough detail to bring him to life. The rollde-up shorter sleeves without the blazer are a departure from the original Kenner toy, and it makes this figure al ittle more different than just shrinking down the same one we got 25 years ago. He lacks the character's ring from the costume, but the necklace and watch and pretty much everything else is there. While mostly wearing black, the figure has light grey shoes and a tiny bit of silver on the belt. I'd like to go into more detail, but it's a pretty good figure. The only thing I see missing seems to be the shirt pocket, which I would completely miss unless I was scrutinizing it for the review.

Mattel's range of motion is good. He can stand, sit, fit in vehicles, and pose with his flare accessory. While there are no ankles, 17 points of articulation make this a pretty exceptional figure for the price. It costs the same as the cheaper Hasbro Star Wars figures, but sits right in between the super-articulated and lightly-articulated figures in terms of quality. "Can fit in vehicle" is a low bar to clear, but it can be tough to do right. Again, Mattel just nailed it by taking a simple design and doing it right. There are no complicated robes or tassels, it's just a guy in pants. This is what a basic action figure can and should look like, and was priced accordingly.

His flare is clear red plastic with white "smoke" paint as well as opaque red on the handle. The compy is a small, green death lizard with a tail that was designed to wrap around a human limb. I don't think I could ask for much more here.

Getting good human action figures made requires a lot of work. Approvals, a good vision, licensor revisions, and whatever kind of stuff happens at the factory to make sure the tints are true and the fleshtones are human. We sometimes get a few dud, but Mattel's Jurassic World line has been great so far. We don't know how many more are coming, or if any more classic humans are coming, but at least the ones we got are generally the most requested and best in breed. Here's to more in the new year!
