Mattel Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Action FigureIn terms of size, Mattel's Dilophosaurus isn't entirely unrealistic at about 3 1/3-inches tall and 5-inches long. As you dinosaur fans know, the whole notion of spitting and the frill were invented for the Jurassic Park story, according to Michael Crichton's notes. They wanted to make it more distinctive from the raptors, so there you go. Now it spits and dazzles you with its leathery plumage before splotching in your face.

Our spitting friend has jointed arms and legs, plus opening frill pieces. She's about 4-inches tall and roughly 7-inches long. The feet are enlarged, and my sample didn't tip over - this has been a frequent concern with other dinosaur toys. Big feet and jointed limbs can go a long way to prevent that.

The head is amazing - the rest of the toy is largely undecorated. Dark green shading surrounds a red and black eyeball, with an orange crest, white teeth, and a pink mouth complete with hole for optional venom accessory. The knobby, scaly detailing is impressive and sharp with slightly awkward frill joints to the side with big, round pylons holding them in place with metal pins. What's cool about it is the printing technique - it looks like a laser printer beamed down a highly-detailed print, you can even make out what seem to be dots on it. It's impressive - it may be the same technique Hasbro is using on Marvel Legends and Star Wars The Black Series 6-inch action figures.

There's an app interactive "DNA" mark on the sole of one foot, and a new Jurassic brand on the other - this time it's a T-Rex skull. Her green plastic shows a lot of sculpted detail, but it does seem a little soft. Much like on Blue, there are black specks baked in to the green plastic rather than paint. A few stripes on the tail add a little color, but it's light and subtle - you may not even realize that they're present.

It's good! It's smaller than the older toys, and it costs about the same as they did 25 years ago, but that's inflation for you. It's not even as big as the Hasbro Dilophosaurus toys from Jurassic World, but the detail deco work and plug-in dark grey chaw spit is a heck of a neat accessory idea. It skirts the line from a kid's toy to a collector-friendly piece, and I don't regret snagging it. I'm enjoying popping these open and trying them out, and assuming you aren't a toy hoarder like me I bet you'd dig having this on your desk. It's a toy, it's sturdy, and it's neat. I don't think it'll define any childhoods, but it's fun.
