Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will see a new hybrid dinosaur called the Indoraptor, and is three-fourths the size of the Indominus Rex. The Indoraptor is primarily black, with orange streaks from the base of the neck to its tail on both sides of his body. The Indoraptor figure has a motorized function that allows him to walk and chase after Owen in his ATV. The Walking Indoraptor is also the second largest dinosaur in the Imaginext collection, following the T-Rex that is also available.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the latest installment of the franchise, and takes place after the events of the previous film.After the demise of the Jurassic World theme park on Isla Nublar, the dinosaurs roam freely on the island for four years until an impending volcanic eruption threatens to destroy the island and the dinosaurs. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the former park manager, has now founded the Dinosaur Protection Group, an organization dedicated to saving the dinosaurs. Claire teams up with Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell), the former partner of John Hammond, to launch a dinosaur rescue mission and bring the creatures to a sanctuary that Lockwood has created in America. Claire also convinces Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a former dinosaur trainer who worked at the park and her former boyfriend, to join her mission so he can locate Blue, the last remaining of the four Velociraptors that he trained. After Isla Nublar is destroyed by the volcano, the dinosaurs are brought to Lockwood’s large estate, located in America. At the estate, Owen and Claire realize that the dinosaurs are being auctioned rather than saved. A hybrid dinosaur known as the Indoraptor escapes and terrorizes people at the estate.

The Walking Indoraptor stands at roughly 10″ high and 16″ long. The Indoraptor is based on his appearance in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and is a new breed of dinosaur that has never been seen before. The Indoraptor is mostly black, with orange streaks from the base of the neck to its tail on both sides of his body. The eyes are also orange, with yellow and a black pupils. The black skin on the Indoraptor features sculpted detail as seeing the film, and the skin is rough to the touch like a rocky surface. The arms are articulated with claws, and the jaw can open and close by pressing down on the red power pad (also demonstrated in the video). The power pad is connected to what looks like constraints as if the Indoraptor is captured, and cannot be removed from the body. The power pad is also connected to the motorized function, which activates the walking mechanism by turning the power pad.
The legs are connected to a motorized function that allows the Indoraptor to chase after the ATV by placing it infront of the dinosaur and moving the vehicle forward. The faster the ATV is moved, the faster that the dinosaur chases after it, and Owen can be seated on the ATV, or on top of the power pad while in motion. This works best up to 12 feet of a distance, and the ATV needs to be in front of the Indoraptor for this to work.
In addition, the Indoraptor has a Dino roar sounds as the power pad is pressed town, turned, or as the dinosaur walks.
The ATV has a blinking red light on back that activates the walking function of the Indoraptor, The AVT has a Jurassic Park logo on the hood that is sculpted on, and is painted primarily in in green and dark grey, with light grey handlebars and a black seat and tires. Owen fits perfectly on the ATV and his hands can be placed on the handlebars. Owen himself has a great likeness, and also has a Jurassic Park logo on his vest that is painted in black. Owen is a standard Imaginext figure, and is painted in a blue shirt, brown vest, dark blue pants, dark grey shoes, a black watch on his wrist, brown hair, and blue eyes painted on.
The ATV can be stored on the back end of the dinosaur’s constraints, and on the back of this are sculpted so that the tires have a place to rest on. There is a also a peg for Owen’s foot to stand on, and the railing can lift up and down so that the ATV can drive on the back.
Overall, this is a fun set to play with and definitely something that both kids and collectors will enjoy. We especially like the walking function and how he chases the ATV across the floor.
