Mattel’s Mini Dinosaur figures have been proven to be a popular item since the blind bagged toys released last year, followed up by waves of new species and paint variants throughout 2018. It’s no surprise the bite-sized assortment has returned under the 2019 Dino Rivals branding, though collectors may be disappointed to know the wave is mostly repacks. However, there is one unique figure to collect: a ‘Special Metallic Edition’ Velociraptor. Thanks to @dinos_r_us we have our first in-hand look at this unique deco of the Mini Raptor, which uses a previously released mini sculpt.
With so many new species being added to Mattel’s 3.75″ scale Jurassic toyline this year, it is a little curious that this latest wave of Mini Dinos lacks any complimentary newness. Similar to last year, more waves could be incoming—hopefully with some fresh sculpts to collect!
