SDCC 2019 Jurassic World Amber Collection from Mattel

Mattel released the first official images of its Jurassic World Amber Collection of 6 inch figures a week or so ago, with promotional images of Ian Malcolm and a Velociraptor from Jurassic Park.



Alongside Ian and the Raptor at SDCC 2019 is Owen Grady, a figure we had originally seen at Toy Fair 2019, and Blue the Raptor from Jurassic World.




It seems Mattel will re-use dino sculpts in this line and while the images aren't clear I suspect both Raptors will use the same sculpt, just have paint variances. The line also doesn't seem to be using face print technology and sadly Ian looks quite poor from a likeness perspective and you'd be potentially forgiven if you thought this was the basic 3.75 inch version. Owen looks much better, so it may just be the angle of the shot.


During SDCC is was confirmed these figures are a Gamestop US exclusive, with Gamestop already opening US pre-orders for Ian Malcolm and the Raptor. We are not as yet clear on the worldwide distribution plan, but would assume the standard fan channel arrangement to the specialist retailers.
