Toy Fair 2018: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a Licensing Juggernaut for Universal

Make no mistake – Universal Studios Licensing is making the most of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The second movie in the Jurassic World trilogy (fifth in the Jurassic Park franchise) opens in June this year, and following the blockbuster success of 2015’s Jurassic World, a plethora of licensees have signed on to deliver products for the sequel.

We’re not just talking toys for kids here – Universal’s media tour also included apparel and accessories, following the model they used for The Mummy last year. While that movie fizzled for them at the box office, Jurassic World seems like a sure thing.

Let’s take a look at the toys!

Rogue One - A Star Wars Story - LEGO Sets

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens in the US on December 6 this year, and LEGO will be there with LEGO Star Wars sets based on the movie. We’ve got the schematics for eight new sets. Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

STGCC 2015: Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and More – by Jedd

STGCC 2015 booth pics by Jedd

Our good friend Jedd was at the Singapore Toy, Game, and Comic Convention this past weekend, and sent us this update.

I just got done with STGCC 2015! I’ve attached some booth photos, as with every year, Hot Toys has some impressive dioramas and displays up, with more of a Star Wars bent this year due to the imminent release of The Force Awakens. We also had a giant life-sized Hulk vs. Hulkbuster statue. The photos of Marvel statues (Elektra, Daredevil, Iron Man, Black Bolt) are from XM Collectibles. I’m not really sure who made the Poison Ivy statue prototype but I thought it was pretty enough to include. Then there are the actually levitating DeLorean and hoverboard models from KidLogic.

The local Star Wars collecting community did up a few dioramas, including the LEGO Simpsons family watching a performance of Jizz (yes, we’ve all heard the jokes) by the Bith musicians at Mos Eisley Cantina, and Hasbro Black Series figures lining up to get some satay from street food vendor Jabba the Hutt.

Here are links to my annual Mega Picture Posts:

We’ll have more from Jedd soon, as he was able to interview toy designer Jason Freeny, famous for his anatomical cross-section toy sculptures. Stay tuned!
