It may only be mid-November, but people are already getting out their Christmas and holiday decorations up a little bit early. Maybe it’s because each new day brings with it another nightmare that we just want a little bit of cheer greeting us each day. No matter the reason, Hallmark is helping beef up your Christmas tree again this year with a new set of Keepsake Ornaments.
We’ve already featured a bunch of ornaments from Star Wars, Pixar Animation, Marvel Studios and DC Comics. Now we have an assortment of miscellaneous movie-inspired ornaments from a variety of our favorite movies, including Ghostbusters, Blade Runner, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Jurassic Park, A Christmas Story, and more. Check them all out below. Read More »
Fans are already excited about the prospect of Jurassic World 3 bringing back original Jurassic Park cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum. It’s the first time they’ve all appeared in a Jurassic Park movie since the first one in 1993. But don’t forget, there are new characters from the Jurassic World franchise who are still alive and kicking, and two young characters introduced in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom have been confirmed to return.
Justice Smith (Detective Pikachu) and Daniella Pineda (The Detour) will return to reprise their respective roles as the panicky systems analyst Franklin Webb and hacker Zia Rodriguez, both previously employed by Claire Dearing’s Dinosaur Protection Group. Read More »
There have been a lot of Jurassic Park collectibles released over the years, but few bring it to life in a way that truly captures the epic nature of the movie. However, a new 1/8 scale statue from Prime 1 Studio perfectly recreates one of the film’s best shots featuring the Tyrannosaurus Rex roaring in victory after taking down a couple velociraptors, and a banner that says “When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” falling in front of her. Check out the Jurassic Park Tyrannosaurus Rex statue below. Read More »

A couple of years ago, Mondo – the company best known for selling stylish pop culture art – expanded out into creating board games, including one based on the John Carpenter film The Thing. The company has released a few other games since then, but perhaps none as interesting as Unmatched, which is a collaboration with Restoration Games. The tabletop/card game is a game system in which players move miniatures around on a board while using cards to attack and defend, and the game’s title comes from its ridiculous match-ups of characters: Robin Hood vs. Bigfoot, for example.
Soon, some of the characters from Steven Spielberg’s 1993 classic Jurassic Park will become playable characters in Unmatched – yes, including the film’s raptors. Get the details about this new Jurassic Park Mondo collaboration below. Read More »
Last summer, we learned Chronicle Collectibles would be releasing one of the most well-known props from Jurassic Park. No, it’s not a dinosaur, but it just might have the stuff you need to create your own dinosaurs.
The Jurassic Park shaving cream cryo can that Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) uses to steal dinosaur DNA from InGen is now available for pre-order from Chronicle Collectibles, and it looks even better than we thought it would. Check out the Jurassic Park shaving cream cryo can below. Read More »
When it comes to collectible art and vinyl soundtracks commemorating our favorite films and television shows, there’s almost no one better than Mondo. But every now and then, the company also likes to dip their toe into the collectible toy arena, and sometimes they do it in a truly weird way that only Mondo can deliver. And that’s what brings us to their latest endeavor: Mondoids.
The new Mondoids are said to come from the planet Mondoida, and they’ve come to our planet to make friends and eat snacks. That might be hard though since they appear as gnarly, slimy, gross versions of characters from Gremlins, Friday the 13th, Jurassic Park, Marvel Comics, and more. Get a look at the first wave of Mondoids figures available now. Read More »
