    Didn't see a thread for this yet.
    Hasbro's Very Cool Transformers x Jurassic Park Mashups Toy Reveal

    42f59ed05d81b41b519687e972730436.jpg

    "For the 40th anniversary of Jurassic Park, we’re getting another dino vs. vehicle Transformers mashup, but this time based on the scene where Dennis Nedry has an unfortunate run-in with a Dilophosaurus who has no interest in playing fetch. The two-pack includes the new Decepticon Dilophocon who transforms from Dilophosaurus to robot in 20 steps and includes a “venom blast effect” accessory, and the Autobot JP12, based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara staff vehicle, that converts to its robot mode in 23 steps."

    "The Transformers Collaborative Jurassic Park x Transformers Dilophocon and Autobot JP12 set is available starting today and is priced a little cheaper than 2021's Jurassic Park mashup, at $75. Starting at 1:00 pm EST, you can order it through the Hasbro Pulse online store, or through Amazon."

    It does look like two new molds. At first I thought the Jeep mold might be based on WFC Hound, but looking closer it is different in the way it seems to transform and the way the panels line up.

    Damn. This is a lot more tempting than that BW Megatron repaint.

    Oh nice!

    Hope maybe with the Mattel deal and things smoothed out we get more JP/JW stuff. Spino and Ankylo would be cool fyi.

    Can’t say I’m very into it. The dilophosaurus is cool, reminds me of BW Iguanus, but that tail placement in robot mode looks rubbish. I was expecting a Siege Hound retool for the Jeep, but this isn’t bad. Being a retool would’ve certainly improved the kibble management. I also see that they haven’t gotten any better at making names up with ‘Dilophocon’ and ‘JP-12’.

    Mildly surprised they didn’t just repaint KD Dinobot into a raptor to go with the Megs repaint, but I suppose that wouldn’t have fit the scene recreation thing (unless the jeep appears with a raptor at some point, haven’t watched the movie in ages).

    Ok, maybe the JP jeep is an all new mold, but I'm still irritated about lack of info on Hound... :mad:

    This came from nowhere, but cool all the same. Also, it's the 30th anniversary not the 40th for 1993's Jurassic Park.

    I was thinking this was unexpected and random (and it was unexpected) but then I remembered it’s JP’s 30th anniversary so makes sense.
