We hope you’ve had good luck on your final hunts to what was once the premiere destination for toy collectors. While we are truly sad to see them go, thankfully this week we have a ton of new announcements to help lift our spirits! This week we have a plethora of new San Diego Comic Con 2018 exclusives to reveal, plus a few other surprises from some of our favorite companies! There’s plenty of reasons to stay positive still, so check out the Toy News for the week of June 26th, 2018!


“Life Finds A Way”

This past week the latest film in the ‘Jurassic’ franchise blew up the box office with ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’! Fans of the series seem to be showing now signs of tiring and that’s giving licensors a ton of reasons to keep making more merchandise to feed the fans dino-sized appetites! The latest offering up for pre-order is the new 1:1 scale life-sized Baby Velociraptor Hatchling Replica Statue from Chronicle Collectibles!

This collectible is quite possibly the closest you will ever get to recreating the iconic scene from the first ‘Jurassic Park’ film in The Hatchery. This statue is 100% life sized, although the Baby Velociraptor is not removable from the egg (it’s probably for the best really). To be able to call this infant your own, it will set you back a whopping $250; although installment plans are available for as low as $41.67 a month! This baby is due in Q2 of 2019! Check out the full release and preorder info from Chronicle Collectibles below!

“They imprint on the first creature they come in contact with…”

Presenting the perfect companion piece to our Jurassic Park 1:1 Velociraptor Egg, the Jurassic Park 1:1 Raptor Hatchling! In the original hit film, during the initial explanation of the science behind the park, owner John Hammond walks the team through the laboratory to show off the incubator nests that have brought the dinosaurs in the park to life. While they examine the eggs within the incubators, one of them begins to tap, then crack. With minimal assistance from Mr. Hammond, a little baby Velociraptor emerges from the egg and opens its eyes for the first time.

Watching the birth of the baby Raptor was an amazing and yet unnerving experience. For us at Chronicle Collectibles, that scene has always struck a chord and it’s been something we’ve wanted to do for a long time. Fans have also been repeatedly messaging us asking us to do this piece. Fortunately, the wait is over!

For this spectacular life-size collectible, we have worked painstakingly to perfectly capture the baby Velociraptor’s struggle to free itself from its egg shell.

Please note that the baby Raptor cannot be removed from the egg (it’s for your own safety, after all). The Jurassic Park 1:1 Raptor Hatchling is ideal for cosplay or even just as the coolest piece of life-size Jurassic Park merchandise to ever fit on your desk.

This limited edition Jurassic Park 1:1 Raptor Hatchling can be yours for only $41.67 a month with our interest free payment plans. Order yours today and be sure to pair it with our Jurassic Park 1:1 Velociraptor Egg for an amazing display and conversation piece!
