Mattel Jurassic World Dino Rivals Destroy 'N Devour Indominus Rex Action FigureI may gripe about barely-changed figures, but Mattel's Jurassic World toys have made some significant improvements over Habsro's. I really didn't think we'd see the "Bad Boy" again, but this Destroy 'N Devour Indominus Rex is a huge improvement. It stands better, so far at least, than Hasbro's. The design and proportions are better. The materials and joints look nicer. The textures are improved. The lights are still goofy, but it serves as a sort of x-ray to see the human or dinosaur figure you "feed" this one. There are ball-jointed elbows and two buttons to activate sounds and features. This, friends, is a real toy!

It's more or less screwed to the box with plastic tabs, along with two sock ties keeping it upright. Batteries are included and there's no weird tail assembly - it's ready to go and immediate fun.

Seemingly borrowing from a superior digital reference file, the creepy hands and huge talons are all here. The spines on the back are awesome, the skull-like head is a gem, and the yellowish teeth contrast nicely against the pale deathly skin. If this were just a $40-$50 model of the Indominus Rex, I'd say it was pretty good - thankfully Mattel opted to make a real toy with that most coveted of action figures: the ability to eat things.

The reason I love it is there's a button that opens the jaw. Click it three times and it lights up the neck, giving you a silhouette of whatever you throw in the mouth. The jaw is hollowed out and so is the neck, and there's a great interior to the head with a big clear button in the back. If the figure touches that button, a chomping sound is activated - it's kind of brilliant. It can chomp and bite, plus the other button on the back activates the grabbing arms.

There's no real active camo feature here, which is a shame, but it's not like it made a lot of sense with Hasbro's toy. The I-Rex is mostly hard plastic - no "real feel" skin here - and has jointed legs as well as shoulders and elbows. The neck and jaws move with the buttons, but aren't traditionally articulated.

I hate to say it, but it renders the Hasbro I-Rex toys sort of moot. Given their higher prices, I'd say forego them completely and just chase this down. The Dino Hybrid ones are still unique, but if you just want a good movie Indominus Rex, get this one. It's really great and while not cheap, it's sizable enough that I'm not complaining. This is the kind of dinosaur toy you wish you had as a child, and while the "gulper" Bull T-Rex from The Lost World did allow you to eat other toys, this one is a bit fancier, sturdier, and more preposterously electronic than necessary for a very small price increase. Given 22 years of inflation, it's basically the same price.
