We’re slowly getting back to our regularly scheduled programming here on Collect Jurassic, and our first Creation Lab post after Toy Fair is truly something special! The talented jurassic_pixels recently began posting these wonderful pixelated renditions of Mattel’s Jurassic World toys to his Instagram, and we couldn’t help but take notice of their excellent 16-bit video game vibes and faithfulness to the toy designs. The artwork is literally pixel perfect, with each piece an exact match with its plastic counterpart. jurassic_pixels has covered a wide range of figures too, from the massive Thrash ‘N Throw T. rex to the diminutive Compsognathus.
Even more astounding, jurassic_pixels creates each of his mini master-piece in Microsoft Paint—yes, that Microsoft Paint. Each pixelated portraiture captures the retro-game style in way that makes us badly want a Mattel Jurassic World platform adventure game. Which character would you choose? Our gallery of jurassic_pixels work acts as a “Character Select” screen of sorts, but there’s even more prehistoric pixel goodness over on his Instagram—go give him a follow!
