Why, oh why, can't the humans in this line be closer to ML scale!?!

which answer are you looking for this time? different companies? different franchises? the differences between real humans and comic book superheroes? what jurassic collectors want and buy as opposed to what non collectors like yourself want and wont buy?

Oh man that those Ellie faces are atrocious, I can't believe those mugs, woof. What the hell was going on there, instantly out on buying that one, which is sad because from the neck down she's great, Buttaface for real.

you never heard of their wwe line i guess. or all the dinos theyve been making for the past 5 years. 

I don't collect WWE figures. But to be fair. That's a good point. WWE is handled pretty well by Mattel. The DC figures were the terrible, out dated ones.

The Dino toys I don't have anything bad to say about it. The humans however, are decent, I am seeing improvement.

To be fair, these are supposed to be in 1:12 scale, and Malcolm is as tall as Thor... so not exactly a human/superhero difference there to point out. To be fair too, ML are bigger than the 1:12, so matching scales should be tough. As a Jurassic Collector, I'd want my figures to match perfectly along all franchises and companies, but I'm settling with what's being given.

But Jeff Goldblum is objectively taller than Chris Hemsworth, so i don't see the two being the same height as a problem.  I do think the lack of digital faceprinting for the Jurassic line does make it hard to put them alongside mcu figures even if you pose creatively to mask any height/scale issues, though, especially if you are doing closeup pics. But its not like these figures are not recognizably the Jurassic Park characters they are supposed to represent or anything.

I only have Ray Arnold, and he seems to scale pretty well with my comic ML figures given that Jackson is 6'2", his head seems slightly larger than ML heads but i think Jackson just has a big head.   he does look too big next to say mcu Captain America.  But i mainly got him

  1. to use as a generic scientist alongside Moira McTaggert's generic female scientist
  2. because i like the 1:12 scale old-school computer (wish it came with a mouse though!)
  3. because the severed arm accessory is hilarious

So given that i don't plan on using him in mcu displays, he will work nicely with my ML collection.

That's not a JP3 raptor, that's a re-release of the JP raptor with updated painting and a clear stand.

as was already stated 2 days ago:

nobody but jayc said this was a jp3 raptor. and he only said it cause he was confused by bbts listing it before they listed the rerelease that mattel officially announced and just assumed it as he isnt a jp collector.

The positive thing is that maybe some of the early figures like Owen or Blue will be reissued, I missed them.

amazon has both still, regular pricing. dont know if thats an option for you though if youre not in US.

i thought i read that blue was gonna get a re-release with slight paint difference and headset based on 1st jurassic world instead of fallen kingdom.

I prefer to wait and see if BBTS has them in the future or some local retailers or Etailer, buying that kind of items on Amazon from here is complicated when the package reaches customs.

People... I'm getting members complaining about other members and content that is being said about members.  I know it's in everyone's nature to say something good or bad about someone.  I'm even guilty as charged but can we keep the comments about the  toys and not each other, OK.

Huh! I googled and you're totally right! Complain completely erased!! I agree about the faceprinting, but since there are some older MCU that don't have the faceprinting either I'm not terribly picky about that either. I got Arnold for the old school computer too!!! And the arm, because it looks brutal. I thought the same thing about the mouse when I opened it. And he's around the same size as the Windu and Fury so they don't look out of place... other than they're triplets.

who said theyre 1:12? each human is 6.5". thats bigger than 1:12 scale. true 1:12 scale means that one inch equals one foot. the amber collection made each human the same size and scales the dinos to that. mattel has always called the line 6.5" scale for that reason.

I tried looking for a source that stated that... do you have a link that I could check?

The Mattel Shop states that every figure is approximately 6in/15.24cm, including the dinosaurs... which they aren't. I'm guessing they mean it's because they're in 6" scale (1:12) and are approximately that size. 

I wouldn't put it above any toy company to give confusing or wrong information.

I'm convinced the likenesses are "off" on purpose. Like a toy-etic choice. The WWE figures they produce have incredible likenesses for the most part. Maybe they thought it would be more appealing to a wider audience if they looked more like toys than the real thing. Not sure I agree with that ideology but maybe. The more releases we get the more I just say okay. *Me trying to absolve myself of the extreme disappointment with the Nedry likeness* 

IT'S THE JURASSIC TOYS WE'VE ALWAYS WANTED! I"M SO TORN!

Cool pics, but those aren't Mattel saying the line is 6.5" like you said, and I quote "mattel has always called the line 6.5" scale for that reason", it's you proving that they're that size. The one place Mattel does say anything is in their shop, and in the shop they're sold as 6in.  Just measured my Nedry, he's 6.2". The scale is all over the place, and it's ok, I don't really mind, I love these toys even if they could be better. Just stop claiming Mattel said something if you don't have the source to back it up.

https://www.gamestop.com/toys-collectibles/collectibles/figures/products/jurassic-world-amber-line-dr.-ian-malcolm-action-figure/11051841.html

gamestop gets their descriptions direct from mattel. so yeah mattel said 6.5". never once did they say 1:12. and as proven multiple times now, these are not 1:12 and arent supposed to be. 

but i do agree these are great toys and i love them too. love that actual movie scenes can be made for display. thats the best part. owen and blue faceoff from fallen kingdom, dilophosaurus spitting at nedry from jp1, t-rex chasing malcolm from jp1, raptor fight from lost world, raptor squad meeting indominus, and we'll soon be able to recreate muldoons death too. this is one of the best lines ever made.
