Jurassic World 1:12 articulated figures coming to Kickstarter!
A licensed exploration of scaled, articulated dinosaurs and characters from the Jurassic World Franchise. Subscribe to be the first to know when we launch our Jurassic World 1:12 articulated figures Kickstarter campaign!
Why are these figures going to Kickstarter?
We’re trying something new! Chronicle Collectibles owes our existence to our community of fans and collectors. We haven’t needed to crowdfund a collectible statue, prop replica, or figure before. However, we have big plans for our 1:12 TrueScale line of Jurassic World franchise figures and want to be sure everyone hears about them. So, we’re headed to Kickstarter soon!
When will the Kickstarter begin?
As of now, we don’t have a set date, as we are waiting on asset approvals and final prototypes. However, we are hoping to launch this campaign, which is 65 million years in the making, during this summer blockbuster season!
What scale and size are these figures?
These figures are 1:12 scale. Our TrueScale Blue Velociraptor stands approximately 6 inches tall and is approximately 12 inches long.
What are TrueScale figures?
TrueScale figures are designed to be to as close to their on-screen counterpart in height and proportions as we can make them. Meaning these collectibles are true to the character. Collectors can rest assured that when Dr. Alan Grant is displayed next to Dr. Ian Malcom that our favorite chaotician will indeed be taller.
That sounds cool, but what if I want to buy something right now?
We have good news for Jurassic Park and pop culture fans! Chronicle Collectibles has a wide variety of offerings that are available right now on our web store. Take a look to see what is in stock for purchase, or jump in on a pre-order for one of our limited edition collectibles.

Time to take a look at another Extreme Sets Pop Up Diorama – The Dojo 2. Their first Dojo set was solid, a perfect set with inspiration from classic Bruce Lee movies. This version takes those same themes and expands them into a more detailed & unique option. It comes with 5 panels, a floor, and a 3D emblem hanging between posts. There is a custom dragon logo on all panels, with an overall tone of yellow and red. Banners hang around the top of each wall, with traditional Asian paneling below. Overall it gets the job done with a bit more color and detail, a great option for our martial arts figures.
This is in stock now over at Extreme-Sets.com along with the other Multiverse Wave 8 sets. We’ll be looking at some more from wave 8 soon too! Read on to check out the Dojo though courtesy of Extreme Sets!
