Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom is a fantastic movie with some exceptional cgi! I personally loved the volcanic eruption scene in the movie for its brilliant execution. The mobility division in that movie is mostly provided by Mercedes Benz from cars to trucks. But there is one special vehicle called Gyrosphere that was used in both the movies, which I loved personally for its unique shape and ability.
Me being a diecast collector wanted this in my collection badly and was in a hut since the release of the first movie way back. Finally after a long wait I saw this Gyrosphere with Claire figure in Toys R Us, Bangalore last week and without thinking twice I bagged it along with few other Jurassic World stuff, including a 1:64 model of the same Gyrosphere by Matchbox.
The package is kind of hybrid with half of the model exposed and the rest hidden. The package has some nice graphics from that Volcano scene, along with Owen and Blue. The sides of the package contains the Jurassic World logo in them. The rear of the package contains some instruction on how to set this Gyrosphere and Claire’s figurine inside it.
Unboxing experiencing is also something different, you need to cut some tabs, pull some flaps and so on. The first piece to come out with minimal tool usage is the top piece that covers the Gyrosphere with some crakes on, which is by design and as per the first movie.
Next comes the Claire Figurine, which is kept in a separate card in a kind of blister like cover. It has to cut offed to get the figurine out, which I feel a bit orthodox but gives that extra protection to the figurine. Once the cut is done the figurine find no trouble in coming out.
The figurine is around 3.75inch and has a decent build with some articulation just enough to keep this figurine inside the Gyrosphere comfortably and snug. The figurine’s costume is all nice and the texture is cool but the face some how don’t match the real character.
The last piece to come out of the package is the most important, it is the lower part of the sphere with the balancing mechanism along with the seats and all. This piece is held to package by a strong tread and a plastic stay and taking it off is really easy.
No doubt this Gyrosphere looks cool in that case! But looks extreme once out of the box. The scale is perfect, the transparent sphere is nice and the lock mechanism is snug making it look like one piece. I would have prefered a open on to the side like the real one but this is not a complaint but a expectation of an unsatisfiable mind!
The Gyroshpere looks cool from every angle but I prefer add the character in to give more life like perception. Though this comes with Claire figure once you put here in the Gyroshpere leans to her side, not much but it is evident the say the least, so the best way to balance this Gyroshpere is to get Owen figurine and place it right next to her.
Size wise this is almost the 1:18 scale and to do a size comparison I put it right next to my AUTOart Toyota FJ Cruiser and it looks like a match… even the color matches. I guess this Gyroshpere would work exceptionally well with my dinosaurs collection and those photos would sure steal the show.
Even Claire figurine match in size with my other 1:18 figurines, here Claire figurine is placed next to my Black List Crossroad Collection Vol. 2, QP Route B Kouzou Suzumoto by Organic and they look perfect in height and build. Even the posture is normal, being an articulating figurine this can be moved and posed according to the scene.
This is a decent purchase and a very good movie merchandise. The Gyroshpere also has a bit of weight making it good both kids as well as adult collectors like me. I am planning do some carzy photoshoot with my this Gyroshpere and some of my dinosaurs figurines and some other figurines. So hold on… till next time. Ciao.
