Its been a long time coming since those early images were teased last year, but the new Jurassic World Amber Collection has now been officially revealed by Mattel.
So what is the Amber Collection?
The Amber Collection will be a new series of figures aimed at collectors and will features characters and dinosaurs from both the original Jurassic Park and newer Jurassic World.
How big will they be?
The new figures will be of the 6 Inch scale, so bigger than the current 3.75 inch scale of the legacy collection and regular line human figures
What other figures will be part of the Amber Collection?
The amber collection is expected to launch in the USA later this year with the Ian Malcolm and Velociraptor figures. We have also seen previewed Own and Velociraptor blue. If these are successful we can might see more classic figures from the likes of Alan Grant and Ellie and other iconic dinosaurs like the Triceratops and Dilophosaurs, but this is just speculation.
When and where will it be available in the UK?
We have had it confirmed from a representative at Mattel that the Amber Collection will be a Amazon Exclusive and is due for a summer 2020 release.
What is the expected RRP
Based on the known prices in the USA we expected each figure to retail at somewhere between £24.99 – £34.99.
We have contacted Amazon but no further information was available at this time. We will update as more information emerges.
The Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus will be coming this Autumn/Winter.
Jurassic Toys are thrilled to confirm that the much anticipated Legacy Collection Brachiosaurus (GFH12), will be coming to the UK. Whilst we are disappointed not to be stocking this item ourselves, we are happy that it is getting a release here in the UK.
We had it confirmed from a Mattel UK representative that the Brachiosaurus will be a Argos exclusive for Autumn/Winter 2019 with an expected price point of £70.00
As with most items at Argos you can expect this to be available both online and for collection in-store.
The Brachiosaurus itself is styled from the original Jurassic Park film, is around 71 CM high and 86 CM long, and features movie-inspired sculpting, authentic colour and realistic texture.
The Brachiosaurus figure also has multiple points of neck, leg, tail, and jaw articulation for multiple moves and posing possibilities.
We think this toy will be on every dinosaur lovers Christmas list!
On the 4th June Netflix announced the new series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Due to be released in 2020.
I hope you are all as excited as we are for the first ever animated series from the Jurassic Park/World franchise. Fans have been eager for an animated series since it was first revealed that Steven Spielberg vetoed plans for an animated series in the 90’s.
As part of the announcement from Dreamworks , they revealed the new action/adventure animated series will debut globally on Netflix in 2020, as part of a wider deal with Netflix to produce original content.
Set during the events of Jurassic World, this new series will take us back to Isla Nublar and a new Adventure camp on the other side of the Island. But as disaster unfolds across the island they find themselves stranded with no way to contact the outside world.
The premise of the series sounds great and Dreamworks have a history of bringing fantastic stories to life. we are hoping this series will be a must watch for all the family.
The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow.

DreamWorks Animation today announced Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, an animated action-adventure series, is set to debut globally on Netflix in 2020 as part of an ongoing multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce original animated kids and family programming. Set within the same timeline as the 2015 blockbuster film, Jurassic World, the Netflix original series is inspired by the multi-billion-dollar franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar. But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive.
Scott Kreamer (Pinky Malinky) and Lane Lueras (Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny) serve as showrunners and executive producers. The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous builds on a successful five-year relationship between DreamWorks Animation and Netflix that has seen 18 original series debut on the service, including the Tales of Arcadia trilogy from Guillermo del Toro, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Spirit Riding Free, and The Boss Baby: Back in Business. Following NBCUniversal’s acquisition of the studio, DreamWorks Animation and Netflix expanded their relationship to include first looks at animated series based on Universal Pictures properties as well as original and acquired IP. DreamWorks Animation has a number of additional series slated to debut on Netflix in 2019, including Archibald’s Next Big Thing from executive producer Tony Hale and the highly anticipated Fast & Furious animated series.
