Could it really be? A deluxe Legacy Collection playset from Mattel is releasing via their Mattel Creations platform, featuring none other than the iconic Jurassic Park Visitor Center! A modern toy version of Kenner’s classic Command Compound has continued to be one of the most fan-requested release since the toyline began, and Mattel is finally delivering it alongside six figures of the film’s main cast (including a set-exclusive red shirt Alan Grant) plus an Extreme Chompin’ Tryrannosaurus toy painted to match Rexy’s appearance in Jurassic Park. Naturally, the “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth” banner from the Isla Nublar Escape set has been repacked to complete this incredible playset. At an even $200, collectors will be sparing no expense when they purchase the Legacy Collection Visitor Center, available never on Mattel Creations!
Yes, never — this is our latest April Fool’s joke and while we’re sorry to disappoint, perhaps showing the huge demand for a Mattel Visitor Center could lead to its eventual release. Special thanks to Hatclaw Designs and Jurassic Park Diorama’s by Peter Hui for their beautiful fan recreations of the Visitor Center which were used to help create this year’s gag.
