The Jurassic Park III toy line, made by Hasbro, is based on the 2001 movie Jurassic Park III .
Dr. Alan Grant
Alan Grant is posed as if he's running and lacks his trademark cowboy hat. Grant comes with a Dino-tame weapon that is essentially an oversized claw that can grab hatchlings or fend off the jaws of dinosaurs. Grant also comes with a red and black Velociraptor hatchling which is also posed in a running position. Alan Grant was repainted three times for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2 and Jurassic Park 2K9, while his Dino-tame weapon was repainted three times for JPD2 and JP2k9. Meanwhile, Alan Grant's Velociraptor hatchling was repainted 9 times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3 and Jurassic Park 2K9.
Dr. Alan Grant with Compies
Alan Grant wears a white shirt with a brown vest and blue jeans and is equipped with a flamethrower. Two oversized Compsognathus are included in this set, with both being green in colour and both have different poses. With one being in an attack pose and the other being in a more neutral pose. The Compsognathus in an attack pose would be repainted once for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3.
This figure resembles Billy Brennan quite a bit and features a hang glider which can be attached to Billy Brennan’s back and a notably more articulated left arm when compared to the usual Jurassic Park human. Billy Brennan comes with a Pteranodon hatchling which is heavily inspired by the adult Pterodactyls seen in the movie. Billy Brennan and his hanglider were repainted twice for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2 and Jurassic Park 2K9. While the Pteranodon hatchling was only repainted once for JP2K9.
Paul Kirby stands in a walking pose, and is dressed in a red shirt. With dark green ripped pants, and a pair of black binoculars hanging over his shirt. Unlike the movie, Paul Kirby has no moustache. Paul Kirby is equipped with a rather mediocre net launcher and is accompanied by a gray and blue colored Stegosaurus hatchling. The Stegosaurus hatchling itself would be repainted three times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, and Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3.
Amanda Kirby doesn’t really look like Tea Leoni, and looks more like Ellie Sattler. The figure also has a Dino-tame weapon that can only fire and knock down hatchlings. The figure also has some extra detailing in the form of tears in her pants. This set also includes a fairly movie accurate Spinosaurus hatchling with a movie accurate brown paint job. The Spinosaurus hatchling itself would be repainted six times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3, and again for Jurassic Park 2K9.
Due to being a kid, Eric Kirby is notably smaller than the average Jurassic Park human, and is dressed in a red t-shirt and blue shorts. Eric Kirby also has a flashlight sculpted in his right hand and also has a backpack sculpted into his back. An Alpha Pteranodon hatchling is included in the set, and is designed to hold Eric with its claws, albeit rather poorly. The Alpha Pteranodon hatchling itself would be repainted once and used twice for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3.
The “Military General” features claw marks from a Velociraptor on his shirt and is colored in green camoflauge. The Generals weapon is a missle launcher that shoots out an oar like missle that can hit small dinosaurs that have trouble standing down. The General also features a Tyrannosaurus hatchling, which is green and features feet supports to help it stand (although there is a varaint that lacks them). The Tyrannosaurus hatchling would be repainted a record breaking 14 times (counting variants), with it be repainted for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3, and once more for Jurassic Park 2K9. While all the while, the Military General was repainted once for JPD2 with his Dino-tame weapon and once more without his Dino-tame weapon for JP2K9.
The “Military Diver” is fairly detailed, with him sporting some rips in his swim gear. This set also features an Aqua Spinosaurus hatchling, which is heavily inspired by the Spinosaurus seen in the movie. The Military Divers Dino-tame weapon is a tranq gun, which can be loaded and launched with a missle that can actually hit hatchlings with enough force to knock them over. The Military Diver and his Dino-tame weapon we’re repainted twice for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2 and Jurassic Park 2K9. While the Aqua Spinosaurus hatchling was repainted four times for CamoXtreme, JPD2, and JP2K9.
This Electronic Tyrannosaurus figure is fairly movie accurate with its paint job, and is a smaller version of the Electronic Ultra Tyrannosaurus rex. Pressing the button under the creatures neck makes it give out a movie accurate angry roar, while a button on the creatures dino damage wound makes it give a movie accurate sound as if it were in pain. This sculpt would be repainted four times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3, and Jurassic Park 2K9.
Seeing as this is the first semi-large Brachiosaurus figure in all of Jurassic Park toy history. The fact this figure has a not so appealing paint job is a shame. Alas, pulling the figures front right leg will makes the figures tail whip, which will knock down most human figures and will also unleash an angry Brachiosaurus roar. This figure also has some uncoverable dino damage, which shows a mix of muscle and bone. A shriek of pain will be released if the button in the figures Dino Damage is pressed. The sound effect is actually the same sound effect as the Brachiosaurus in Jurassic Park when it sneezed on Lex Murphy. This figure was repainted once for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2.
This figure features a fairly movie accurate paint job, and is rather over sized when compared to human figures. Pressing a button on the figures back makes it slash its claws, knocking human figures down, while also unleashing a movie accurate screech. This figure also has dino damage in its tail, which shows some muscle and tail bone. While pressing a bone in the dino damage results in another movie accurate screech. This sculpt would be repainted four times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3, and Jurassic Park 2K9.
This figure is one of the only herbivores of this toyline, and has poseable limbs. Pulling the figures tail up makes the figure headbutt, knocking human figures down, whilst also unleashing a sound that sounds like an angry Triceratops. The figure also has dino damage which shows muscle and bone, while pressing a button disguised as a bone in the dino damage unleashes another roar, this time in pain. This sculpt would be repainted twice for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3 and Jurassic Park 2K9.
Pack RaptorThe Pack Raptor is 1 of 2 RE-AK ATAK Velociraptors released for the Jurassic Park /// toy line. This figure seems to resemble the male Sornaensis Raptors from the film. A repaint was planned for the Camo-Extreme wave 2 but was ultimately cancelled with the rest of wave 2.
Aqua SpinosaurusThis figure has a scar running through his eye and spine. Pressing its spine makes him slash, knocking down human figures and also unleashing a roar identical to the other Spinosaurus of this line. He has dino damage showing muscle and bone. Pressing a button unleashes another sound. It will be repainted and then cancelled for the CamoExtreme toyline.
This figure is navy blue with a black highlight and black stripes lining its back and wings. This figure can flap its wings by pressing a button on its back, and makes a flapping noise while doing so. The two other sounds this figure produces are the same as the smaller Pteranodon of this toyline. This creature can activate a biting action by pressing the figures crest down, allowing the creature to grasp human figures. The figure also features dino damage on its back, which shows muscle and bone. This sculpt would be repainted twice for Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2 and Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3.
Ultra Tyrannosaurus rex
This Electronic Tyrannosaurus figure is fairly movie accurate with its paint job. Pulling the figures left arm down makes the creature roar. The sound itself is movie accurate, though it is rather poor quality. The figure can also bite and grip human and small dinosaur figures, and features a rather gory dino damage wound. Which shows some muscle and bone, pressing a bone in the dino damage makes the creature unleash another roar, though this time in pain. This sculpt would be repainted three times for CamoXtreme, Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 2, and Jurassic Park: Dinosaurs 3.
Animatronic SpinosaurusThe sculpt is very movie accurate. Pressing a button on the neck under the skin makes it roar, sounding fairly movie accurate. The head also tilts down. The same feature can be activated by pressing the tail and the side, unfortunately the system gets broken easily. The figure has a biting action which can clamp human and small dinosaur figures and thrash them around by pulling the tail. The figure comes with dino damage, it is the same from the Tyrannosaurus as seen on the movie. On the neck there is muscle showing and on the side there is muscle and bone showing, it is a wound. Its arms are poseable.
Dino Tracking Set
This is a unique set of repaints that were only exclusive to Wal-mart. There is a repaint of the cyclops raptor, now in a JP3 raptor-like paint job. It still has a thrashing action and the scarring. Restraints to stop it slashing the Triceratops is back, with a JP3 Triceratops paint job. Pulling its leg back makes it headbutt, knocking down human figures. It has limb restraints to go on the legs with tracking tags as well. The tracker is a repaint of Harpoon Harrison. He has two nets - a bola launcher which can knock the raptor down, and 2 new green guns that fire missiles. The missiles can knock down small dino figures.
Criticism of JP3 toys
Many fans of the original series were disappointed with the JP/// toyline; the figures were under-scaled, the dinosaurs unproperly sized, the lack of usable vehicles, etc. The fixed-position characters also raised problems with playability.
A Velociraptor that is supposed to be poseable but not very flexible as its name implies.
A Spinosaurus that is supposed to be poseable but like the raptor not very flexible.
A Velociraptor that reacts to sound, comes with a raptor skull whistle.
A remote-control Spinosaurus, it can walk, lift its head and roar and moves its eyes. Comes with an egg shaped remote control.
