I’m surprised that Hasbro had not previously tapped the Jurassic Park license for a Transformers crossover. Either with the Dinobots or Beast Wars, there are so many opportunities to integrate the two. I would have given my left arm for a Jeep that transformed into a Decepticon version of Wayne Knight.
While my dreams for a robotic Dennis Nedry may never surface, Hasbro is delivering the combination of one of JP’s most iconic scenes with two new Transformer figures. Let me introduce you to Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93! The two-pack is priced at $104.99 and is available for pre-order exclusively from Hasbro Pulse. The duo should arrive in January.
Worlds collide in this Transformers-Jurassic Park mash-up pack! The iconic T. rex and Ford Explorer from the movie, Jurassic Park, are now Transformers robots, called Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93! The Tyrannocon Rex figure converts into T. rex mode in 27 steps and the Autobot JP93 figure converts into licensed Ford Explorer mode in 18 steps. Both figures feature deco and details inspired by the Jurassic Park movie. Includes one blaster accessory.
- Tyrannocon Rex is on the loose! It’s up to Autobot JP93 to track her down and stop her from wreaking havoc on Jurassic Park.
- The Tyrannocon Rex figure converts into T. rex mode in 27 steps and the Autobot JP93 figure converts into licensed Ford Explorer mode in 18 steps. Both figures feature deco and details inspired by the Jurassic Park movie
- Autobot JP93 comes with a blaster accessory that can attach to figure in both modes and the Tyrannocon Rex figure features detailed molded dino texture.
The vehicle/dino modes of the Transformers look great. The robot modes, on the other hand, are a little generic. Tyrannocon certainly has a better look, but the basic black and red body make it look a little cheap. JP93 offsets that by implementing significant portions of the Explorer’s iconic body.
