As if we all weren't excited enough to see the new and improved dinosaurs in Jurassic World, toy makers at Hasbro have just unveiled the movie's official figurine range.
It contains the usual and predictable assortment of dinosaurs - Velociraptors, Tyrannosaurus-Rexes, etc. - but there is one amongst them that stands out like a sore thumb. And the reason why is because this particular dinosauric creature is a cross-breed!
Yep that's right, and if this dinosaur is set to feature in the movie, it's only logical to assume the park's staff have been engaging in a bit of experimental dino-breeding.
But rather unlike that cute Pug/French Bulldog cross you see idling down the sidewalk, this creature will be half Stegosaurus, half Triceratops!
And apparently, this won't be the only hybrid to feature in the film.
In Jurassic World, set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, the island has been turned into a fully operational dinosaur theme park. The new park's dangerous corporate owners force Owen (Chris Pratt) to create an "Indominus Rex," another genetically modified hybrid dinosaur, to boost visitor attendance. According to all the information we have about the film so far, this dangerous hybrid then breaks loose and runs wild across the island.
Take a look at Hasbro's Jurassic World toy range, including the hybrid, below!
The Stegosaurus/Triceratops Hybrid
We can only guess how this crazy Stegosaurus/Triceratops hybrid will turn out in the movie, but on average, a fully grown Stegosaurus was around 9m in length, 4m in height and weighed almost 5 tons. Triceratops' were equally as big but had an astonishing amount of teeth, anywhere between 400 and 800!
"Echo" the Velociraptor
The Velociraptor is one of the most bird-like dinosaurs ever discovered. It was small and fast, and the sickle-shaped claw on each foot made it a formidable predator. An unusual bone in its wrist allowed it to swivel its wrist sideways in a flapping motion which allowed it to pounce on fleeing prey. It's known by some enthusiasts as the "Speedy Thief."
"Delta" the Velociraptor
Contrary to how the Jurassic Park franchise portrays them, Velociraptors had feathers, not the scaly, reptilian-like skin seen above.
Perhaps the most recognizable dinosaur in popular culture, the Tyrannosaurus-Rex lived in an area of the Earth that now makes up western North America.
