Universal and Hasbro are teaming up for a new Transformers X Jurassic Park collaboration, revealing a new two-pack fans will want to snag.
I try very, VERY hard to limit my toy purchases to Star Wars, if for no other reason than I just don’t have the space anymore. That said, so many companies aren’t making that decision easy. That’s especially true when it comes to just about anything Jurassic Park.
Today, Hasbro has revealed a new Transformers crossover collaboration (as they’ve done with Ghostbusters and Back to the Future previously) that will bring iconic parts of the JP franchise to the Transformers universe. First up is a two-pack the recreates the T-Rex and vehicle scene from the original movie:
Universal Brand Development and Amblin Entertainment today revealed the first-ever TRANSFORMERS X Jurassic Park collaboration. The iconic T.Rex and Ford Explorer from the blockbuster 1993 film, Jurassic Park, are now TRANSFORMERS robots – TYRANNOCON REX and AUTOBOT JP93. The new TRANSFORMERS X Jurassic Park figure and vehicle pack celebrates the groundbreaking, ultimate thrill ride, Jurassic Park, which brought audiences to an island theme park populated by dinosaurs created from prehistoric DNA… and we all know what happened next!
Welcome…to Jurassic Park. TYRANNOCON REX is on the loose, and it’s up to AUTOBOT JP93 to track her down and stop her from wreaking havoc. Both figures feature a combined 260 unique decos and details inspired by fan-favorite moments from Jurassic Park. The TYRANNOCON REX figure converts into T.rex mode in 27 steps and features detailed molded dino texture. The figure features an all-new head mold and stands at 7 inches.
Fans will also enjoy a nostalgic interpretation of one of the iconic vehicles from the film, as the AUTOBOT JP93 figure converts into licensed Ford Explorer mode in 18 steps. The figure stands at 5.5 inches and comes with a blaster accessory that can attach to the figure in both modes. Dr. Alan Grant and the Game Warden inspired both the JP93 hat in bot mode and the JP93 blaster accessory.
Both figures are contained within packaging inspired by the unforgettable scene in Jurassic Park when the T. rex gets loose from her enclosure and crushes the Ford Explorer. The packaging also includes a cardboard backdrop illustration of the T. rex’s cage, so that fans can recreate the iconic scene, in addition to T. rex footprint graphics on the back of the pack.
TRANSFORMERS robots have always been… More than Meets the Eye, but now, through the TRANSFORMERS Collaborative, fans can experience these larger-than-life characters as they team up, mash up, and meet up with other characters, teams and people who share this same special quality. It is a world of constant change where things are not what they seem.
Pre-orders for the TYRANNOCON REX figure and AUTOBOT JP93 vehicle pack ($104.99) are live now on Amazon, with a second launch coming on December 1st through HasbroPulse. Hopefully this is the first of more, as I LOVE seeing these things come together.
