Who here remembers watching Jurassic Park when it first came out? When the movie first came out back in 1993, me and my family just had to watch it and I admit, I was pretty scared of the big dinosaurs (in my defense, I was a kid). Jurassic Park is actually the movie that intrigued my desire to learn all about dinosaurs. Today, they went from Jurassic Park to Jurassic World, which is just as interesting as Jurassic Park. Jurassic World first came out in 2015, and now, there’s a second one that is set to come out on June 22, 2018. With a new movie like this, you know what’s going to come out with it, right? Toys! No Jurassic movie is going to be complete without toys to go along with it and in this case, we have the Jurassic World Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle.
What is the Jurassic World Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle?
The Jurassic World Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle comes to us from Mattel. This is two vehicles in one – it’s actually a truck, but upon further inspection, you’ll discover that there’s a gyrosphere hidden inside of the truck.
Gyrosphere Launching Action
First, I’d like to tell you about the gyrosphere launching action, which I find interesting. There’s a button located on the top of the vehicle – when you press that button, it launches the gyrosphere (this is included). There’s also a space where you can place action figures and raptors in order to recreate that chilling chase from the movie scenes. Mind you, the action figures are not included, but that is okay because you can easily purchase them separately.
I couldn’t help but notice the detail that was put into this toy. It is obvious that it was inspired by the movies. The vehicle features a large front grill, a total of six big wheels and rugged construction.
This vehicle is intended for children ages 3 and up. Not only is it for children to play with, but I know many collectors that would enjoy the gyrosphere. Children will love playing with it and won’t have problems, because it’s easy to operate and is great for some good old-fashioned imaginative play. If you love Jurassic World yourself and you’re a collector, then this is something you’re going to want to add to your list.
Action Figures that Will Work with the Gyrosphere
As I previously mentioned, action figures do not come with this set. However, the new Jurassic World line just so happens to be on a universal scale so that they can work with one another. This means that you can buy any action figure in the new line and it will work with this vehicle. So, for example, you can take Owen and put him inside the gyrosphere, then launch him inside the gyrosphere for an escape. For even more imaginative play, toss a dinosaur in the bed of the truck for transportation.
Whether you’re a collector or have a child that loves dinosaurs, the Jurassic World Gyrosphere Blast Vehicle is something that I would highly recommend.
