Hasbro Jurassic Park lll - Military General

Of all the figures Orniphus meticulously  packed into that Amazon Prime box, this was one of the gems that stood out to me.At first glance,I kind of figured It was a JP figure ,and after further research,It seems I was right.Jurassic Park figures ,while not heavily articulated,sport some really cool sculpts.In fact,If Fisher Price were to re-release an Adventure People  line of figures ,this Is how I would want them to look .Like most other JP figs,this generic Military General Is pre-posed in a stance  fit for a heavy machine gunner.In fact  that's the kind of weapon he originally comes with,along with a small scale T-Rex.The cool thing about this figure Is his blank slate.He works with pretty much any other military themed action figure and can also be inserted into your Marvel Universe as your standard General.You could also use him as Duke for your Joe universe or Rico from the Star Ship Troopers film.I'm gonna have this figure stick around just In case I decide to pick up any other JP sets.

    1. I saw those Matt.They don't look much like the Fisher Price Adventure People.They are nice looking figures,though.

  2. I got this guy on card after they got clearanced out of the stores. He was my Duke for a little bit while there were no Joes to be had. His head sculpt is really nice, I was only bothered by how difficult it was to make him stand. Also his assortment was repainted and rereleased as a Toys R Us exclusive a couple about 2-3 years ago.
