Mattel dropped what might be my two favorite exclusives from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con earlier today and both promptly sold out in pre-order on their website. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get your hands on these toys, just that you’ll either have to get them at Comic-Con, buy them on eBay, or just wait until the less exclusive versions are released in a few months at retail.
The big news is that Mattel is finally making a John Hammond figure for their Jurassic Park line. This was pretty much the only main character that was still missing from my collection. The figure’s description mentions a need for batteries, but I’m pretty sure that has more to do with the packaging than the actual figure. After all, if it needs 3 AA batteries, that’s more in both size and volume than the actual figure.
What really blows me away about this figure is one of the accessories. They made THE CANE! That’s right, the one with the bug in amber. That’s a level of detail I was not expecting from this line and I really hope that it makes it to an eventual retail release.
